Which site style do you prefer?

Do you prefer the old (classic) RCG site style, or the new (beta / adaptive / fluid width) one?

It probably won't make any difference to anything, but it may be interesting to see how people feel about this...

Classic for me.

Judging by the way Terry is scowling at me at the top of the screen and warning me about not getting the new site features, it looks like they will make us all switch.

Fluid width is not bad, except for that awful white text on blue background on the left side. Very distracting and serves no purpose at all.

Adaptive is a joke. What is the point of it? For cell phone users or something
Seems like a giant leap backward for desktop users.

H'mmm why didn't the owners send out a poll question like this to members BEFORE this change was ratified to see what the members want ?

Oh, I also don't care for the scowling /frowning at me because I choose to use the classic style.
I'm happy I'm using it !
If I am forced to use the new style format I will be one of many frowning !

The classic style is easier on the eyes.
I don't mind much the new ones but the blue bar on the left side is, sorry, an eyesore. Too distracting, makes the page look more cramped and unbalanced.

The bigger and bolder fonts are a little jarring too, I understand that is for the benefit of people using mobile devices, I would suggest making a mobile design and letting people that use regular computers have a better, less bloated layout.

On the whole I'm still using the classic, fits better on my netbook and desktop screens and as I said, its easier on the eyes.

I went back to the old as my eyes were not liking it either. I do not like the bigger fonts especially on unread threads.
