I've noticed a lot of complaints about the new layout of DaniWeb. Even I bickered when I started coming back recently.
I just wanted to say that I'm starting to really like the new layout and features. Specifically I like how speedy the page loads are, the floating menus at the bottom, and especially the icons representing "new post", "new post in a thread you've posted in", etc. For people like me that may only create 2 or 3 threads a day, this makes scrolling the page to find my post extremely easy.
I did like the color scheme of the old Dani - but purple's cool too :)
As a side thought, how hard would it be to have several color schemes available in the control panel of each user?
