New Forum Feedback

Recommended Posts

V.T. Eric Layton

I made a slight adjustment to the theme tonight. I changed the Body Background Color from FFFFFF (pure white) to DCE4EF (a pale blue). If you like, say so. If not, I can revert it.

Scot, if you didn't mean for me to tweak like this, just let me know. I'll fix it. :)

Also, I added the old logo that I had created for the previous board. Like? No? Let me know. I can remove it or make a different one.

EDIT: I removed the old logo I installed and reinstalled with a new one that has the same colors as the forum theme. It matches better now. Feedback please... Like? No? Suggestions?

Looks nice but I I'm not too crazy about the font on "Scot's" as it looks kind of cartoonish.

I like the softer background and I like the bar at the top. Thanks Eric.

It's MS Comic Sans. That's probably why you have a dislike for it. ;)

I can change if you nag me about it enough.

OK, so you didn't have to nag me too much after all. How is it now? Better?

 

Oh, and here are all three Scot's Newsletter Forums banners so you can see the differences...

- old board

- 1st for new board (with Comic Sans "Scot's")

- 2nd new banner (no Comic Sans)

Yes, please!!! Comic Sans is horrible. I like rest of it though.

You know, I really hate the UGLY rank pips on this theme...

Do we need rank pips at all? I can remove them. Would anyone prefer I didn't? Let me know...

I also don't care for the entire profile synopsis in the user's side bar on each posting. If I can find a way to turn that off, would you all prefer it to be off... or do you like the profile baloney on every post? Let me know...

Testing...

 

This is a test of the single line/Return key stroke...

 

Testing...

One Return

 

Two Returns

 

OK, I think you all will prefer it this way. It's the same way we had it on the older board.

The Computerworld News feed just seems to be posting titles... no content in the actual postings. :(

 

Scratch the above. I figured it out. :)

OK, NOTE:

 

I enabled the Status Update thingy that we had at the old board. Let me know if you see it in the right sidebar on the main board page. To make a status update, you click on the Create pulldown menu on the board's main page - top right side.

 

I also enabled personal sigs in posts as we had it at the old board. To change/edit your personal sig, you'll find that in your account settings by clicking on your name on the upper right of the board main page.

Nice but I did notice that it duplicated my status 3 times.

Yeah, the one from June 8. Oh, well... a bugaboo happens every once in a while. I can fix that by allowing only three current updates. ;)

Well, alrighty then...

 

I've done enough damage for the day. Let me know what you liked, what you don't like, what peeves you, what impresses you, etc.

 

Need feedback from the members who are here using this place everyday. If I can make it a better experience for you, I will. If it's something that's not possible, I'll let you know that, too.

 

Have fun!

I'm not seeing any obvious way to exclude "Computer World" content from Unread Content posted by live persons.

 

I tried to Ignore Computerworld as a test, but it doesn't keep those posts out of the "Unread" area for me either.

I figured it out. There might be an easier way, but this works:

  1.  "Follow" all the areas except the one you wish to ignore, by opening each section, one at a time, and setting your "follow" preferences for each one.
  2.  On the search page  set "Following"  to "Content in areas I follow"
  3.  Click "Save as new Stream" and then "Create Stream"
  4.  Bookmark the url of the result.

Use the new bookmark to see new content w/o the one(s) you didn't follow.

Eric...for the future can you find a way to allow me to turn off notifications for

"Someone gives reputation to something I posted".

 

I don't need to know if someone likes my post!!!

I dislike most notifications - even on my phone.

Funny enough, I do not care for the notification but I do miss being able to see who liked it.

I don't know if that's possible, Liz. If you click on your name at the upper right side of the board and choose Account Settings in the drop-down menu then choose on the "Other Settings" - Notifications --> untick everything you don't want in there. I'm not sure if that will stop all the notifications, though.

 

Look HERE for more info on Notifications.

Yeah, me too. I'll look into the "reaction" system here in a few minutes. Maybe I can tweak a bit to improve.

I agree. If there is some way to disable the Leaderboard BS, would you like me to do it?
