It looks pretty weird to me, and the names of the posters are too big...


But I am on my awful work computer, maybe its just that.

I'm just used to the old way, I guess. It'll take a little getting used to. It may be just me, but everything looks so big and clunky. I feel like I'm walking in a dark room and bumping into random pieces of furniture.

They didn't put in enough space for the reply area, you kinda have to look for peoples reply's becasue the Sig and the poster avatar is too close.

I like the little light by your name saying if you are online... the avatars look good too. But you're right, not enough room for reply area. Prehaps there should be a limit on sig size? If you go to www.chiefzhuddle.com and look at the forums you will see their smaller sigs. They would work better for our new system.

Its good and all, I guess, but is there anyway to make it so the replies are not overwhlemd by everything else on the screen - bigger font or something?

Some of the icons seem to look fake or pasted on.

I also agree with OB420...the default font on the text is a little small.

Changing the font is cool..but the default needs to be at least an 8 if not 10.

Other than that, it is something to get used to.

Well, we had been getting requests to upgrade the software, and so it was done. I'll move this to the feedback area so that any concerns may be addressed.

I like it just fine - it will take a bit of tweaking on the admin's part to get things finished off correctly...

The quick reply box is a happy thing - that is missing still...

With the new version of the software, it might have been better to go with a new "theme" style -- The color scheme in the new format is a little disappointing.

I don't like what they have done to the site, it isn't THAT bad but i'd rather have the old one back. How about you?

StlBroncosFan
10-27-2004, 03:25 PM
I think that the board is just fine this way.

But I change the font each time to number 2 so that I don't have to buy bifocals to see it. :0

I like the way it is laid out. It will take about a day of posting to get used to but overall it is fine.

Any way to get the default font size at number 2 instead of the size it is on now?

GriffinRB22
10-27-2004, 03:26 PM
definetly its way too big

They say the only one who likes change is a wet baby, and the comments so far about the new boards certainly seem to bear that out. :)

The upgrade was done mainly to help with security issues we were having. All the same avatars, smilies, forums, etc. are still here for your enjoyment, and I think once people play around with some of the new features you'll appreciate them. Give the modified layout a few days to get used to, and if there are still specific things people don't like let us know and we'll see what we can do about them.

Thanks!

New formats are always weird until you get used to them. Just give it time.

Vbulletin does not work like that...

There are options for using different themes, but not different versions of the board.

Give it some time, once they get the rest of the kinks out, it will be a lot smoother & more enjoyable for everyone.

Oh and to all of you complaining about the avatars & "other junk" being too big -- How about resizing your sigs??!?! or limiting them to one per person.

mattos
10-27-2004, 08:27 PM
ugh, i really don't like the way the avatar is above the name. i agree w/ everyone else that it is now really hard to find the post. hurts my eyes.

i've been on other teams boards that looked like this and always thought that they sucked and i was glad ours looked much better.

terrible decision to change it to this.

yuck.

i like the light thing that says whether a person is logged on though.

mattos
10-27-2004, 08:28 PM
ack, i meant
"i don't like the way the avatar is above the post"

it depends what version you have.ive been on vbulletin boards where you can choose a style

No s*** sherlock...

But you can't CHOOSE which VERSION of the software you are running -- you can choose a "style" or "theme"...Which basically changes the color scheme and a few other options.

Trust me, I run a board like this...I know what the options are. We also have the most recent version of the software.

2 things I don't like:

1. My eyes have to work harder to find the text of the posting because of the size of the user names, and the orange bar between each. Too much visual "noise"

2. Logging in after each post??? That has GOT to be fixed

NJBRONCOSFAN
10-28-2004, 11:14 AM
If first, I said it sucks...10 minutes later it wasn't so bad. It just takes a little getting use to is all.

I had this problem the first few times i posted yesterday, but I haven't had to log in anymore (other then when i first get on the board)
you should ask a mod. about that.

Now that I have been using it for a while, I can't even remember what the old board looked like.
