Re: W0W! Forum Decor Change

This reminds me of the time I asked out a model and our first date involved a swimming pool and the total removal of all her makeup and me running for the hills.

 

I hope I adjust better this time.

I see the update was rolled out!  Mobile is a million times better, and navigation on it is great.  In regards to the desktop version, I think the notifications and inbox icon at the top are much better placed now, my only big critiques are that I instantly thought my browser was zoomed in 125% when I loaded a thread and the desktop version feels a little too much like a mobile site.  I'm thinking this is because of the plethora of white space on each side that feels like a lot of wasted space.  Maybe increasing the width of the thread boxes would help with this?  I may be crazy, but I feel like the font was smaller or something was different that allowed more of a page to be displayed without scrolling.  With change there's always going to be growing pains, and I love the mobile version, I just think the desktop site feels underpowered.

Update:  80% zoom on desktop is a much more "natural" display to me


I agree the extreme white space is overwhelming. I too zoomed out, it helped but not much. I hope peeps in charge will read this and tone down the white a bit, maybe give us some contrast between post and border space.

Re: W0W! Forum Decor Change

The hard white is going to be rough for midnight browsing.  I posted my initial impressions here detailing what I liked and where I thought there was room for improvement. Tl;dr desktop scaling is an overzoomed mobile version.  Maybe one of the mods can Merge all of our posts into an "official" forums update feedback thread?  I'm not sure how to tag a mod in this.

Edit: Thread has been merged.  Thank you UncleB

New Board Layout

This new board layout hurts my eyes.  Please offer a legacy mode. Or atleast an option to change the text size, and color scheme.

 

Thanks,

Glad my sentiments are shared by others.  Soften the white for the sake of our eyes, rescale the threads to a wider, smaller font box, and the desktop site will be awesome.  I also wish they would bring back the user details under their avatar, such as post count and age.

Re: New Forums Experience Coming Soon!

Please give us options to change colors, the white is like staring at the google homepage constantly.

 

Nice layout, good functionality, but my eyes are already hurting x.x

 

Like a template, give me some dark grays to work with or something.

Accurate comparison.  I agree that with some template options a lot of the eye pain could be alleviated
