Totally agree!

Good suggestions, and I agree as well.
I'll work on it.

The board is hard to read and navigate. Couldn't you wait until after the Blues are out of the playoffs?

To disagree, one doesn't have to be disagreeable.

In trying to upgrade the board for the playoffs, there were some things that broke and it looked like ass...so I wanted to fix it sooner rather than later.

Just trying out some things...new backgrounds, new tweaks, etc.

It's a work in progress...

I like how everything is back on the left side rather than that weird shift to the right. After careful consideration, I like this style. Took a little getting used to, but it's a winnar. :okman:

Still tweaking font sizes and whatnot...but I think we are getting there.

And yeah, I think the profile info on the left is better. I think the right would have been ok after a while of getting used to it, but the left seems to be the better way to go.

Am I seriously the only person that would use this button?
Why can't it be on all pages?

Also that the text colour doesn't really go well with the background...

Everything is still on the right side for me. Am I missing something?

Same here.

And still need darker background, IMO.
With the colours of the old forum, the new style would be fine for me. :okman:

Try clearing your browser cache. I can assure you the profile info is on the left side now.

A darker background would make the text over the background unreadable.
Changing the font color, link colors, hover colors, etc. would be necessary.
I'll consider it. :wink:
I actually think putting a border around the post blocks would do the trick and make the posts stand out more against the background.

I'm appalled that the playoff countdown is still up there. Too depressing.

The board is way better now with these separated posts! I am starting to like it. Good job Curt! :okman:
