Looks interesting, but why are the forums on the right side?
Looks sort of disturbing.

Because it is probably a forum from a different country and culture (".ir") where the reading habits are maybe different?!

In any case the rounded corners looks nice Meis2M.

What is the status of CSS gradients at the moment? I'm guessing it's not a standard yet but it could be implemented just like border-radius in the near future, right?

Slightly better English than it was in 2005, still improving :D

It is a standard, and supported in quite a few browsers. However, it uses quite a bit of CPU and is trickier than making an image.

Gradients support in browsers is very poor. All browsers require their own prefixed versions, IE won't support them until version 10, some implementations are different and most browsers don't correctly support gradients with alpha channel.

acctually support great for all browsers other than IE which does support gradients but as filters however only simple gradients which is all the is used for the current theme. as for teh CPU that CAll pointed out its not as much as one would think for simple gradients(those only involving 2 color blends) their is no CPU drain in compliant browser the only drain would be to IE requireing the filters but its minimal at worst as again their are only two coors.

Life is too short to spend valuable time adding browser specific code especially when the user base is diminishing daily...
I don't personally support adding unnecessary javascript code just to support a single browser's inadequacies...

If during development you choose to ignore international standards, then you should expect to suffer the consequences...

Life is too short to do your job? Front-End development is extremely easy these days with all the tools we have at our arsenal. Just because your too lazy to do the job correctly is not an adequate excuse.

It literally should take no more than one work day to code and style a basic forum theme from scratch. none of this cookie cutter *beep* that is regurgitated all over the place. The time consuming portion comes in the design and planing stage.

As for the diminishing user base it is directly related to the fact that we are not using modern coding methods/standards/practices that is leading to this and not the reverse.
