MADE I i just visited this forum today and I was disgusted.

Aside from smaller text Frankly IMO its crappy.
Its predecessor is far better
Why change the better format with this new lousy one?
BTW
Anyway who gives a damn about an avatar?s location...
As for me,Never had one for ages ....

Hope you can improve it as I improved you name as it does not make sense. to me..far better to call you I MADE or MADE -i

I have to say that the previous version was much easier to read and use. I could tell at a glance when there was a new post.

Bill, is this mainly due to the new post buttons? I'll change them if you'd like.

Hmm....the previous version is indeed more friendly. The plus point about this version is the colour which is very pleasant and fresh.

I agree TP, but we couldn't of stayed on our previous version as it was beta and there was no support for it. If you don't mind, dot point your negatives of this board, and I'll try and fix them.

Thanks

Aww...what a shame. A couple of negatives...

1. I'd prefer not to have my cursor highlight cells as it scrolls...that can be kinda distracting.

2. Is there a feature which highlights the latest posts which we have not read? At the moment, I look at the dates for a rough guide.

Cheers.

TP the 'new post icons' are still there but there very faint, changing from a blue to a unnoticeable red. Soon when I have some time, I'll make a few changes to the forum. It will be looking fine in no time.

Maedi, please don't take it personally!
Keep time, good work will need it.

I've only quoted someone, perhaps he likes it.

Don't worry. I don't take it personally. I have more respect for someone when there completely honest, even if it's in the form of quotes.

I can't even remember what it used to lok like... I'm so old and senile >_<
I think it looks good, except for the yellow highlighting thing. And the color of the title banner is a bit off and not very easy on the eyes.
Oh and I just noticed today how I can see in the thread if a person is online, how cool is that?!

I'm glad you like it nina. I'll fix a few things soon such as the highlighting and the banner, then later give it a whole shiny new look.

@maedi
Thx!
First of all, very good work, well done!
I was only very surprised, because I didn't conquer the forum since beginning of April

Graham, torturing me, no videos!
I used to work in the film department in a library when I was a kid, splicing and all! Can't wait to see the footage! What a bunch of Oz hero bakers you had at Milawa! (envy written on my face!)
