Is there a place I can seriously complain about new format?

Thu Dec 13, 2012 11:34 pm

The new FECC forum with all due respect, is giving me a headache.

Your input is appreciated. But you haven't mentioned what in particular about the new format is "giving you a headache".
Without knowing that, I can't make any corrections.
The old format (subsilver2) has been outdated for a couple years now, and is pretty much abandoned in the development community. So, if we want to keep the FECC forum "the latest and greatest" - it would be a poor move to return to that format. Therefore, it will not be coming back.

I will have to give it time to grow on me, after using the same format for what seems like years now, naturally any change is hard to adjust to!

One thing I will say is the overall appearance of this site did need modernising. Although this is the best Elvis site on the internet, or at least used to be, it certainly never has looked like it!

Another thing I think has to change is the logo of the website, up on the top left of the screen. Can that please be changed, something a bit more exciting, larger and moderner. With a really cool graphic of Elvis, or multiple images of him throughout his career?

You're right. It's crap. On some of the posts some of the larger avatars obscures the first word. Jordan bring back the old format ?

I setup my account to hide avatars and signatures, what a blessing!

I think it's the preview icon on the left side of each topic that irritates.
The rest is just a matter of getting used to I guess.

Cheers.

You're right Jordan. My Browser is Mozilla Firefox.

I use Mozilla Firefox too...

It is probably with the new "Hobbit" movie and the HFR-Technique... at first it is annoying but then you most likely grow accustomed to it. But what's really giving me a headache right now are the "running" circles on the left on each topic name (can't describe it better, I hope you know what I mean, Jordan).

Check now for the firefox obfuscation/avatar issue. Is it better?

I use firefox and I don't have that problem?

I'm gonna have to get used to this new format.

As Sam Philips said 'It's different' !!! :lol:

Thanks for the new update but to be honest at first glance I don't like it and find the fonts on the home page of the message board a bit hard to read.There also seems to be a lot of waste space on topics. The light blue colours don't really work for me. I hope you don't mind some feedback and I'm sure I'll adjust..

Not much. It's just on a few of the larger avatar's that blocks the first words (such as promiselands and luckyjackson's). Why change ? What was the problem with the old format ?

Hi Robt,
Clear your browsers cache. I have implemented a fix so that the avatars resize if the browser isn't in full screen. It Works :)

The old "style" of the forum has been pretty much been abandoned in development circles. Which means, any new security issues that would have arose would have no fixes to them. Also, no new features are being readily developed for the old "style"

Nothing lasts forever ! This is gonna take some getting used to, my friend.

Thanks for the hard work, Jordan.

I like to use the Unread Posts function but when I then look into a post within that list there no longer seems to be an option to go back to that list.

Does that make sense?
