Re: New Post and Thread Indicators

I'm sorry to be saying this because I'm sure you've worked hard at this changes. The new BBS screens are basically illigible. The subject lines are wrapping around on my screen. The extra columns don't really add usefull information. Who cares that something has a three star rating? Ratings are subjective. SOrt of like my comments. I may be the only perosn that feels like the screen is now cluttered up with more information. It has always seemed to me that the biggest complaint any one ever made was that the forum's were slow. Adding more items to disply can't help the load on your equipment. Heck, it's the only compliant I've ever heard. Everything else has been great, no censorship and such.
Thanks. Brett

Re: New Post and Thread Indicators

How can I change my view to be like the software two changes back? Up until today, I had it configured to NOT show avatars to the side but to show the the post heading above the post. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Re: New Post and Thread Indicators

I'm curious about the stars next to users names. Why would someone with fewer posts and or less time here rate more stars than someone who had been here longer and made more posts?

Re: New Post and Thread Indicators

It seems to be based on what other people rate you at. I've been registered longer than you but you have more posts, I don't think it matters. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Re: New Post and Thread Indicators

Is your screen configured for 640x480? I hope not! What browser are you using?

Thanks

Re: New Post and Thread Indicators

It's not about the users, it's about the post content.

Re: New Post and Thread Indicators

And who makes the decisions on post content? I'm sorry but I generally don't put up a buncha drival, like several I have seen on the boards. I'll tell you, I honestly don't like this star rating crap. Makes it into a big popularity contest.

Re: New Post and Thread Indicators

Well, I like some of the new changes, but dislike others. For instance, how about putting up the borders around each post, it's easier to see where one leaves off and the other begins.

Re: cleaner page views

JEEPN, you gotta change your color theme for the forum over to 'Always Use Default' or 'infopop' (same thing, actually)
....its much easier to read that way
