not sure if this was brought up but with the new design, every channel will look the same way because you're forcing people to use a grey box with no method of customization colors. So all the hard work users, partners and directors have put it to make there channel different and unique will be gone.
Not sure why you chosen to do this at all, literally no reason to remove a feature like this. Alot of the design has neat features but i'm just not sure why you felt the need to change the channel layout again after changing it in 2009. Design changes should only happen once every 5-10 years not every year or 2. =/
