I like the new "Dark" forum skin a LOT more than the new default; Dark seems closer to the old look. I like the new colour-coded nav buttons on the forum and the main site. The forum is now a lot more integrated into the rest of the site, which is good. The ads I can live with. The UltraXConnect banner across the top is more than a bit distracting, however. The GoogleAds are as unobtrusive as always. Those I might actually look at; I'm afraid I'm usually willfully blind to flashy animated banners! The pale blue top bar seems awfully tall, and the pale blue is quite a change from the previous look and from the many of the other colours in use. Glad BT is back - didn't realize how much I'd been coming here until I had to go a day and a half without!
