New Forum Design ~ So what do you think?

36 posts in this topic

Like all things, it will likely take some getting used to it. I'm finding it a bit difficult to read for some reason but the last change became familiar over time too. :)

That's the way I see it.

I was disappointed to find no User CP, but if you hit "Settings" in the upper right hand corner of the page, it takes you there; even the same URL.

I wonder if TA might consider reversing the color scheme for the thread titles and the name of the poster who starts the thread on each forum index. The blue ~ at least to me ~ seems like it needs to be bold or darkened, or be in black because the black font currently used for the originating poster's name ~ in black ~ seems to cause the eyes to automatically focus there first, making it a bit more difficult to follow the thread titles when perusing them.

 

And there really should be new smilies too. The rolleyes looks too happy; the wink and the big grin are too similar to easily distinguish; the EEK! not shocked~looking enough.

 

We also need a popcorn~eating smilie for me and Baltimore Ken to use on LOCALS and NATIONALS whenever certain topics return so we can indicate our enjoyment in anticipation of the ensuing arguments we know are bound to occur. :)

My very first impression was, "Oh wow, cool!"

 

Then went I got to the end of this thread I saw the thing that I've been asking for for the last 10 years, the Quick Navigation to jump to another forum or to jump back to the top of the current forum.

 

Kudos to the Sun for getting at least one thing right!

There could be a little more contrast overall, but otherwise the design is cleaner and more straightforward. As with any other change, I'll adjust and I imagine so will others. Oh wait, what about something as important as smilies??? :P

I like some of the new features. The auto~translation into Spanish~English and English~Spanish will no doubt enhance viewership and increase membership and more diverse opinions from those who might speak English very well.

 

And now having the option to be able to view the IP addresses might turn out to be a good thing if only because it might make some of the more hateful posters think twice about some of their comments. And especially if they're posting from work. :)

Thanks, that is what I was looking for.

Thanks. That had been my only real gripe.
