Default New Pagination - Feedback needed!

Hey guys, I recently changed how the Pagination of the forum works. What is pagination? Basically it's how you browse the different pages of a thread or a forum. I have attached an example of the new and the old pagination. The reason for the change is some users were having difficulty dealing with the smaller links, this new style should be easier to use and click, I have made the links larger and the buttons for Next and Previous page larger.

Please give me honest feedback on this as it's a vital navigational element of the website and if it's bothering you I need to know.

Hi Mark,

I like the change and it is more conducive to the way other forums work that I visit. I think it will make it easier to navigate in my own opinion of 1

Thanks for all the nice chances you have made lately. This place just keeps getting better and better.

Thanks guys!

I did my best to test it in every browser. So far I tested:

Opera 11, Firefox 3.6, Firefox 4.0, Internet Explorer 8. Does anyone have an older version of Internet Explorer or a version of Safari? If so, let me know if it looks nice or not.

Mark,
10 years ago I wouldn't have had an opinion, but then again, 10 years ago I didn't need reading glasses.
That being said, I really like the new pagination.

Thank you Tim!

To everyone: I'm trying to alter the interface so that community is easier for users to use. If there are any other elements of the website that you find hard to use, please let me know I'd really like to make as many easy of use improvements as possible!

Not being literate enough, I can't help with site improvement suggestions.
I didn't have a problem with the prior pagination scheme. My 70 yo, trifocal assisted eyes did just fine.
