Pity...
Hi yaongingy, Your feedback is not useless, it is greatly appreciated and we are using it to make the necessary changes to the new forum. We have added some shading to help reduce the amount of white space on the screen. Is there anything else with the layout you are having difficulty with? Thanks, - CT

Hi CT,

 

I didn't mean to be dismissive with my post, it's just that this new format makes the experience really frustrating and again, hard on the eyes, if you looks through the disgruntled posts around the forum this is the main objection.

 

Imo, the page layout is too big, fe now when I'm quoting your post the text box is as wide as the page layout with all that white, all that remains is some gray on both edges, but the paragraphs from a posted message don't go to the edge of the box, that white space that remains is bothering on the eyes, same goes for the space after the username until the box where the message appears. These 2 things make the forum seem large, overblown and the white exacerbates the whole page. If you could change the shade of white and make the username box and the text box smaller, it would make the experience of reading the forum so tiring, this is the main difference between this new version and the old one, the old one was more brought together, easier to navigate and to read.

 

Thanks for taking the time to answer, I hope I made myself clear and didn't sound confusing.

Hi yaongingy,

We appreciate the feedback, that is exactly what we are looking for. We have passed those 2 suggestions along to our developers and will work to condense the boxes and white space as much as possible.

Thanks,

- CT

Hi JEG53,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Yes, you're feedback was greatly appreciated as well! To address your concern, we will be looking to improve the Profile Pages and add more features to them to make it easier find and navigate all of your forum activity. Stay tuned for updates there.

Thanks,

Yes the new format is a little underwhelming but I suppose this will blow over
