Yeah, I've done it too. "New Topic" shouldn't even be available inside a thread imo.

Currently not liking how that you can only log out on the main madboards page, where you could use to find it on every page.

Indeed.. I don't emidietly like the new stile as a whole but with a little time it's just a mater of adapting.. however the removed links will always be an inconvenience compared to how it was.

It's good the "New Topic" button has been removed from the bottom of the page, it was annoying me in it's new position.

Trebuchet is a terrible font, though.

ALSO:

Stylesheet bug: Whatever it is that applies the font in the stylesheet doesn't appear to work in Safari. The font used in the headings doesn't turn into the hot new Madman font.

EDIT: Screenshots:

Firefox:


Safari:

This is due to the fact that Safari doesn't support Embedded OpenType fonts or the Web Open Font Format. The latter format is something that has been addressed in the WebKit nightly builds, so hopefully you'll see the correct Madman font in Safari in the not too distant future.

More changes, the text seems to be darker and you can log out on each page now and the posting box has been altered.

Pretty red bar at the top is not only pretty, but useful. Good work, I'm glad to see our feed back isn't going to waste! Laughing

Speaking of which, are we sure nothing can be done about all the clutter at the bottom of every page? Do we really need all those links? Not to mention payment information, since on the forums it's not relevent and all.

Oh and some new emoticons would be fun Razz

It's all at the bottom of the page. Does it really matter that much?

Yes, it's the difference between life or death!
Haha, no I guess it's not really a huge deal in the grand scheme of things. I just find it frustrating when you're scrolling down a really long thread to see the most recent posts, only to find you have gone past the last post into a sea of links (as per screenshot below using IE, to show you what I see)*

I just want to know why we need all of these links, isn't it a bit excessive for a forum?



-----------

* IE used at work, firefox is my usual preference before you all jump on me about it!

Agreed... its annoying when you hit the 'end' page button (to avoid all the extra scrolling it seems you have to do now) and end up in all of that instead of just below the the locked threads.

Advertisement is advertisement is advertisement I guess. But I agree that it is a little excessive for the forums. Confused

The spacing in that screenie is horrible. On my computer using Firefox, the lines don't have spaces between them, and each bulleted text is on one line. That last one may be from having a widescreen monitor, though.

One positive is that if the last post is the "first new post", it's much more likely to start at the top of the screen, than having part of the previous post above it.

There in is a different point.. not everyone has a 22" windscreen... it is a small thing but it is a little annoying.. I recall when the anti piracy ad was pout down there..


hmm something that is quite a nuisance is the Highlight and dodgy thread still having thous 'ghost' posts, half the time you enter the last page or go to newest post to find it doesn't exist and then have to go back and forward again manual. (also after having made a post and it happens)

Yeah I agree with Shinji on the "ghost" posts. It happens quite often with me.

dunno if it's just me but it seems that the links and stuff below, the "box" area seems to be causing side scroll.

my screen is 1024 pixels wide (netbook) and the area at the bottom of the page is wider than that, wider than the viewing area on the pages on the forum and I think they can be all pulled together to be tidier, especially the entry bar for the email can be shorter as well

The width is fine on my two computers, using Firefox. What browser are you using?

I just checked on an iPhone, and I'm not having that problem at all.

It's kind of annoying when browsing on an iPhone.

Also, one of the Flash ads may be causing issues with Flash on Linux. I have a friend who's been unable to browse the forums at all since the upgrade due to his browser hanging everytime it tries to render a page with a Flash ad in it.

Browser is Firefox something-or-other for Linux.

If i bump up the res on my netbook to above 1024 i don't have that side scrolling issue but then again i have to scroll around on the screen so kinda pointless.

Also i tried in IE and it makes everything left justified due to the stuff below and kinda looks like Spritza's pic


In Opera, it all fits on screen when you look at it but for some reason there is sidescrolling. Maybe if the email entry field was cut back by like 1/4 it wouldn't do that. I dunno.

This is something really minor, but one thing I've noticed is that the Madman logo link at the top left is really pixelated (at least on my monitor here at work, will have to check at home). Maybe should use a Vector for it?

Er you might want to shift + refresh your page

Or it could be that you've zoomed in. without realizing? resetting the zoom might help

Why aren't designers creating sites for ipads, iphones and tablets? I came across a few examples which were precisely created for ipads and touch phones - :

http://www.teehanlax.com/
http://ssk.com/

they are truly amazing.
