Here you can see that the squares has a different size on the border (1) 
and the background (2) or is it an optical illusion?

Nice and I like the new Medium choice, I hope thats a permanent one or 
was it just to visualize the "Light" version.

I did a cut and past to visualize what I mean, its a rude cut. I think 
you get the idea of what I mean with a "mirrored" design compared to the 
lighter backgrounds that has a discrete left border, so my thought was 
to have a light left border on the darker backgrounds. Im not shure if 
this is a good idea ;-)

See comments above.

And a new thought is to use the irregular square design from the top 
banner (3) to the background on the "message styles", that will give a 
more lively impression and less squarish... or what do you think?
