Thanks. Many hours have gone into the new "look." The look is due to the forum platform. The new platform is a commercial one ($$$) that is more robust and more flexible as far as functionality as opposed to the free Simple Machines Forum (SMF).
So with the cost of the hosting and the cost of the license for the forum software, the total cost is about $300 per year. So it would be great if members donated by going into their profile and choosing a paid subscription.
