Well, after lots of hinting on the forums, the lite theme has finally been finished up! It matches our Neowin Lite option for the main page.
With the exception of the logo, the IPS banner ad, and a 1x1pixel spacer image, there are almost no images on the forum pages. For even faster performance, you can turn off avatars, signatures, and user-posted images found as an option under My Controls. Load times should be siginifigantly faster for our 56k users under this new theme.
If you find any quirks with the new theme, be sure to post them in this thread and well do our best to track them down!
How to lose the fat and go lite:
