Woah woah woah! I was gone for two days and I come back to a totally different site...well...almost.

Id have to agree with what was stated above. This set up is rather hard to follow. Alot going on on one page. (but Im blonde and like things simple...so maybe its just me?)

Besides that I like the idea of the 10bucks, larger avatar, server space ect.

As soon as I have time Im gonna have to go through this and refigure it out. haha

i think it is very organized and easy to folllow... you'll just have to get used to it, like anything, i guess...

No, I agree, and I'm not blonde!

Any chance we can get a style or whatever like ORR has. They seem to use the same software and it's laid out more like the old forum. That style, w/ avatars on the side, is much easier to read..

looks like you have a higher resolution setting there xtian, with a lower setting, it does look a little more jumbled, but im not sure there is anything you can do about that

True, not everyone runs at 1600x1200 or larger res. And even some of us that do like to share our desktop realestate w/ other apps..

Well, I guess I'm in the minority, but I think it's great. If you don't like the avatars, just turn them off in your options, folks! You can have it any way you want, really.

I say keep the current format (except for this very hard to see cursor!)

The hardest thing to follow for me is the main page with all the posts ect and I just went through to change my profile and there are like a million things to look at...it took me a second to find what I was looking for.

The threads themselves arent that hard to follow. Im just used to the setup of the old site with the avatar placement and whatnot on the side. Im getting used to this, just give a blonde girl some time. :p

I kinda like it because its close to ORR's new style, which I really like. That and being able to upload stuff...

if you don't like the current colors, there is another style available to you in the usercp. i do not plan on changing the style. i think that this style looks good. as far as looking jumbled, i apologize to those of you on lower resolution screens. i just looked at this site at 1024x768 and it was decent...

here is what i see, though @ 1600x1200 on the main page...

O and another question. I dont know if this was answered or not...or if its somewhere in the FAQ or whatever...Im lost..anyway, to my question. Whats up with the colored dot next to our names?


Christian. That is alot easier to follow. Im here at school on this darn MAC and our size is like 15". So its way more complicated to follow then that...all scrunched and stuff. Looking at that it looks similar to the old sites set up. Awesome.

I remember people more often by their avatar more than their screen name sometimes.. Many screen names on sites like these are so close together (ie '01rededge', '01edgeranger', and '01BlkEdge' just to name a few). In fact 'SilverTank' has totally thrown me off by taking his mug outta the avatar! I'll adjust, just not quickly..

Christian, I have the same cursor problem as John on all the computers I use, but then maybe we're just blind...

Mine is too, but on a high res screen, I find it hard to see.

Hey, I cannot find this alternate color scheme in UserCP -- where is it???
