Forum Update
« on: 28 July, 2011, 02:40:40 PM »
We have just completed a re-skin for the forum, if you see any pages that still use the old theme (or a mix of both in some places :o) please do a forced refresh (ctrl+f5 [windows])

There's way too much wasted space at the top. On my default 'Active Topics' view, there are 588 pixels before any meaningful content. I'll be forever scrolling down to see anything - and that's on my desktop, let alone my laptop screen(!)

247 of which are relevant to the site - could move the avatar block to help cut it down a bit if it's generally favoured...

Only one thing, bright red! It like stabbing at my eyes! Not good as always sneaking into pages at work!

Harsh to say it, but we could do without anything above "Home | Help | Search | Profile" etc.. especially the advert!

I don't see a "Home | Help | Search | Profile at all. ?? I think its a case of 'damned if you do', not everyone will be happy with it but its certainly better than the vanilla skin. But yes we could loose the advert, or at least move it to the bottom. Never been a fan of banners on a forum (present company excepted)

Mmm...how's the bottom red for you?

Ah...we're not alone on that:

I want to avoid jumping stuff around when navigating the site as far as the banner's concerned.

Can you pop me over a screenshot of how you "can't" see those links at the top and what browser you're using to w3bz@2000adonline.com ?

My laptop has a widescreen and it all looks a bit wonky and stuff is pretty scattered on the top. Once past that its all fine just the banner and stuff.

Why does the forums open up in a new window when I click "COMMUNITY Meet the Fans"??
