In a possibly futile attempt to continue using this forum, I've removed all images, sigs and another ephemera to try and cut down on the visual choppiness that sets off my migraine and nausea. But, really, if this design is here to stay, with nothing planned regarding the features we've lost, then I can't stay.

Which is a shame, because there was nothing wrong with the old format.

TBC.

I cant cope with the white text on black background, its giving me a migraine after 5 minutes, I liked the old option to change the colour scheme, apart from that I quite like it.

I really hope someone will take our comment into account in order to bring a few changes...

I like it in general, but there are many things to adjust / improve and most of them have already been listed (name of the one quoted too dark, the Ask Meggles search, the view the unread post button, the option of having a more light presentation, etc.)

Oh, and I won't mention the fact that I love love KT's face, except on this image with the tiger upon her head. No luck for me there :lol:

I really hope whoever's in charge of the forum design will listen to us; it seems daft to make people ill and create a user-unfriendly experience all for the sake of a new look. So, if anyone is listening, please try and change it back to something like the format we had before, with just small cosmetic changes rather than things which will stop anyone actually being able to use the forum.

TBC.

I honestly have no idea how to pass all these messages on because obviously some changes need to be done, some options are awfully lacking...

But I think there must be someone working on it in order to improve what needs to be change... hopefully.

To keep it simple, there are two lists that might be compiled and voted on if we have an opportunity to suggest improvements. The lists are:
(1) Navigation Features: I would be glad to assemble a list of the Navigation features that appear to have been lost in the renovation.
(2) User Interface Issues: Perhaps someone else might be able to create a list of user interface issues of the renovated site vs. earlier versions and php "best of breed".

Mods, let us know if you are seeking our "help" or already have more input than you can possibly use within a human life span :lol:

As always, thanks for listening to our advice :D

Oooh god! You don't post for a few days and look what happens!

Thanks for the input guys and girls. I had no idea about the redesign before it went live. I'll read your posts and check the forum out myself and make a note of what needs to be changed.

I'm a bit unimpressed with it, but it's not my forum :wink:

I'll also work on an alternative design like we had before, if people would be up for that?

That would be great, Megs....just to have a version that loads pages like the old forum, without all this blocking and visual stuff that sets off my migraines....

TBC.

I don't mind this black theme and would stick with it but an alternative lighter coloured theme would be handy Megs :smt023

OK, that thing where it tells you that a new post(s) has been made when you're about to make one seems to have disappeared too, that was pretty handy...
