I like the new rounded corners of the search, text entry, and image thumbnails. Initially I though the thumbnails was way too much for their small size but now I'm loving it.

IMHO consistency in rounded corners should be applied site wide. If you round the corners at 20px on the sidebox then the footer, search, and thumbnails should use the same curve. Exceptions may be made for smaller curves on boxes within boxes, or larger curves for bigger fields, or simply for aesthetics.

I hated the thumbnails at first and warmed up too!

I love rounded corners. My old site was all rounded. The old fashioned way, all with images in tables.

My favourite place for rounded corners? Architecture!!! Especially in the Bay Area with the Victorian / Edwardian ornate dentals and details and rich palettes.

I whined and got the thumbnails a tat bigger ^ ^ so my images would display correct.

Really? I asked several times to go from 70x70 to 100x100, and increase of [some]%.

I saved the thumbnail at 140x140 but that's not what's displayed.

It's still displayed as 70x70.

I meant with the new corners first they were more round, cutting away more of the image. More oval than the rectangular version we have now.

Maybe I was initially correct after all. Memory is funny.

The footer "about help tech donate" still needs a touch more rounding to be consistent with the Moderators box, etc.

Good suggestion, it's been fixed.
