Looks a little better than before.

A few quick notes: The boardindex and messageindex look iffy, there's no point in all that empty whitespace squeezing the text (and it doesn't need to be so large). Same in topics, and other places are actually the other way around: Things are too glued together.

It's a sad thing that many sites score so low in those tests, but close to 100 is above average. Responsive tests also mostly just check if nothing breaks, in the way a computer can recognize it, so pretty much it checks if nothing overflows and if there are no elements that are too small. Basically it can check if it was made to be responsive or not, and little else, it's hardly any measure of quality. If there are 'responsive' themes that can't get a good score on this, well...

thank you.

yup- that's precisely what i mean about machines instead of human eyes- metrics used don't equate to ease of human interaction with the page. 

I'll get on the whitespce issue.... thank you, once more.
