Forum Formatting Changes

Hey Folks,

Just a quick "Yes, I was mucking with things" post...
I'm stuck at work babysitting a 10 hour theatre rental... And aside from playing Word by Post with Tarazed and Phong, I've run out of things to do...

SO...

I started mucking with things Smile
I've fixed a few formatting issues that have bugged me (and been brought up several times in the interim) for awhile... And hopefully made the forums a little easier to read, slightly more compact, and with things laid out where they feel like they belong.

There's more changes coming, hold onto your pants!

Looks very snazzy. Smile

Do the tweaks include the bug where logging in from the front page, and then navigating to the tabs for Community - Forum - New Posts makes you have to log in again?

I didn't notice the changes until after I wondered about the icons over the avatars. Then it all hit me; looks good. Any chance you'll make a similar formatting change to the post submission and edit pages? Smile

Well I find the letter icon, and the arrow-down pulldown menu a bit redundant, as there the 'send pm' is also contained. So it would in my opinion make more sense, to omit not only the letter icon, bot even both icons, and make the user name and/or icon mouseover-sensitive to pop up the pulldown menu.

And I must admit that I miss the 'metal' colored triplets, just after having acquired the all-gold-four-triplet one. If these vanish, displaying the user status 'Ringlet' to 'Grand exalted Blabbermouth' doesn't make sense as well, imo...

Else: I like the rounded-corner design.

I never really paid any attention to the ring thingy... but that may just be me. I'm LOVING the changes so far. I love that the posts in each thread are clearly defined ad to where they start and where they end. And I love love love the rounded corners! Very Happy

I used to like watching the rings as well, but after a while I stopped watching it.

I am having a problem reading the posts on Firefox 3.6.28 after the initial post they have no border and the information to the left is all centered above the post on a black background. I realize that I need to update, but don't really like the parts of the update. Tried clearing the cache but that didn't do anything. When I PM'd you over the new changes a couple of days ago it wasn't like that. Any thoughts?... besides that I am a trouble maker and always have to be difficult.

Firefox is currently at version 11... Is it not?
Else, email me a screencap.


Re: The rings, folks, they're not gone Razz They're just temporarily mislain.

It's very bad to take rings away from a chainmailler.


Tell a mailler what ring sizes to use and they'll weave for a day. Teach them AR and they'll weave forever.

Thank everyone I will take the step and update to 11. Hopefully it works a lot better than the 7 that is on my work computer. I will give you an update when I get home.

Damn nerds, always forcing me to update.

Looks good on Chrome, though.
