Not my favorite. I have a 1280 x 1024 Browser and this layout is weird. The new topics are hard to see, same with online people, and its just all weird cry I dont really like it.

That's never worked on this forum for me Atheist. I use IE, and the text size can't be changed in the lower frame from the method you mention.

I understand you work in the technological field, but not all visitors to a dream forum. It's just not feasible to suggest people to upgrade when some are lucky to have 1 computer or other means of internet access.

Heh, I replace hardware once it completely dies. Not when a new model is released. ^^

Hmm, you're right. Damn frames. smile

I guess if it's actually a problem, you can just set the font size in Windows display settings, which applies to everything. I'm assuming there's an equivilent option for Mac/*nix users.

Anyway, I just jammed my poor system down into 800 for a moment to see how the main page displayed, and it's not actually that bad. I just assumed it would require excessive scrolling given that it completely fills the screen in 1024. It might just be this browser, but it seems to take your current resolution into account to optimize the display.

Like Q said, suggestions are more useful than just "I don't like it". wink

Well i wont move my thumb upwards yet lol colgate
I think the concept is less clear and has less overview then before.
Plusses are the dream reminder cue witch is fun! colgate

Maybe visual line harmonisation could give it more or a better balance.

Meaning i dont find it in balance yet. wink
But any change needs to sink in also so i wait a few days and judge it again then..lol

I agree with Jeff. It makes everything feel more overcrowded than before. I really love the hozitional buttons like it was before it changed. But yes, I do like the RC button. wink Perhaps you can work something out. I think the nagivation buttons at the top like it was before is the best. I'm very used to it, but I guess I'll wait and see. siiw

I go away for just over a day, and come back and the forum has changed.
I'm not still asleep, am I? ^^

Well, I like it more than the old layout (but I am viewing it high res). The reality check button is a great new feature siiw

Perhaps it would be possible to make it a choice of the user, whether the user wants the new or some form of the old interface.... it could be stored in the profile or a cookie perhaps...

thanks for all the comments and suggestions!

i too am not satisfied yet, i thought the left menu would look neat, but you are right, it isn't yet in harmony (well put into words, jeff)

the new post thing has moved moogle, it is now at the top left. Or did you mean you don't want it there, you want it back where it was wink5

i'm putting all your suggestions into consideration.

DA you are right, i don't want the forum just to look great in higher resolutions, but 800 x 600 also. 640 x 480 even. (in 640 x 480 the index screen must look horrible!)

You are right RF, i do have a vision for the entire site, but i don't know how to go about it, it will be an amazing amount of work... and then it is finished and i will hear jack say: i liked the winged guy better than this nifty new navigation bar cry
