MODERATOR NOTE: Please use this thread to discuss the website and forum change.

A few notes: Whining about it will do very little, but if you must get it out of your system, then by all means go for it. However, if you have CONSTRUCTIVE FEEDBACK or clear, concise thoughts, PLEASE SHARE THEM, no matter how negative.

Thanks, HK-47. I now return you to your regularly scheduled posts.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



We keep all our stuff right ? (privies, posts, etc?)

like, the forums are gonna be exactly copied to the new server thing right?

There were technical difficulties last night that prevented the move. We're going to try again tonight.

Expect some downtime later this evening after 10PM PDT.

Just to let everyone know, you may see that links from email reminders are not working. This is because the url has changed. I pm'd Will about it and hope everyone will be patient as the bugs are worked out. From what I could see, the old url was maximumpc.com/forum/ while the new url is maximumpc.com/forums/. Adjusting the email link to reflect the "s" should take you to the topic.

Hi Will,

Some comments,

First, you need to kill the right banner blank in the forum. Check out the OMG in the Modder's Folder to see why it shouldn't be there. As a bonus, this will allow for a wider forum and less frame breaking.

Second - the head space above the masthead is too much - you might wanna tighten the style up. I'm using FF - tell me if you need a screen shot.

Third - on the main pages, you might drop a narrow blank or bar down the left - just to keep the content from riding the edge of the window/screen.

Lastly - I'm not a fan of Jacobean Style - but I must say you pulled it off well. With a bit of tweeking, this style is more inline with the main stream me thinks - Good Job to you and the MPC folk!

It also feels more integrated than before.

I like it. Color scheme is easier on the eyes.

1. The blank space above and to the right will eventually have a couple of ads. We're keeping it minimal, but we're going to put a couple of ads on the forums. I'm going to see what we can do about making the forum div wider though. I'm shooting for 1024 wide minimum, and letting it be variable if that doesn't break anything horribly.

2. I don't see what you're talking about with the head masthead? Can you post a ss? It looks just right on FF for me.

3. The text on the left has a 10 or 15px margin. Is it not showing up in your browser?

4. Robert Strohmeyer was responsible for damn near the entire thing. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out, and it's actually something that most of the editors will be able to service. I'm definitely no web designer, but I am able to hack away until I get something to work the way I want.

For good reason but anywho, I truly hate this with passion. Come on adds in the forum?? Please have mercy. Really though, if this place stays thin and not wide as it is now, i will consider leaving. I am a real nitpick in terms of forum style and i'll give myself a chance to get used to it. Could you possibly, like a normal phpbb installation have it open to a new, full window? I really dont think I am going to be the only one with this opinion.

Okay, so you are complaining about adds that aren't even there.

How about you pay a subscription to this forum so they don't have to put in adds?
