the ponsor ads overlap whats next to them
the colour is insipid
every things moved around ,why?
a change isnt necessarily an improvement ,if i had something positive to say, i'd say it
i wonder if the log out button works now?

Luke, too be honest - dreadfull

Remember if it aint broken - dont fix it

Logged in as the forum sponsor on the weekend, couldnt read our logo as the writing was overlapping the posts

Left it for thrre days as i thought the forum was 'down' or corrupt

clicked on favourites tonight to log in as myself - couldnt! The log in block wasnt even there! And i was still logged in as a forum sponsor from 3 days ago!

colour is horrid, I have NO idea what the little icons are beneath peoples posts

Quite frankly the whole thing looks cheap and nasty, it doesnt work, and it looks like you got the program from the bargain bin at "world of Forums" or "Forums 'R' Us"

One question Luke

Why have you done this?
Which bit of the forum is now 'better' or 'improved'?

Change it back mate
Please, change it back:mad::mad:

Ok just 'hovered' over the icons

????????

"Furl this post"
"dig this post"
"add post to del.icio.us"
"bookmark post in technorati"

Luke I have no idea what this crap means

and little interest in finding out

This was a ruddy good forum, now i will have to find a 'street' hoody to decipher it for me

sort it out or i'm off

yea good luck with the job

and the forum... well i havent been here long and didnt get used to the old version i noticed the ads but i think theyre fixed now

it was strange at first but im totally used to it now. it still does what it used to!!

did shakey have a bad day at work or what as far as i was aware this was still a great place for info, banter,discussion and all the rest of the things that keep us clicking everyday

so the style has changed and some things need attention maybe but jeez louise sort it out or im off??? seems very harsh

from my perspective..... its free i wouldnt dream of complaining

keep up the good work

I appreciate my comments may seem a bit harsh, but it aint 'free': we are forum sponsors which is very far from free i can tell you

Additionally, we picked up a virus from this website two weeks ago which wiped out our entire exam system, cost us LOTS of time and money

So you will have to excuse me, if when I click on it it has suddenly turned into an amuterish nightmare, with overlapping banners etc that i suddenly panic and think 'another virus' and shoot off immediately

so yeah, it was a bad day at work..... started two weeks ago in the middle of a 17th editon exam from a gremlin from this site

jibtech

yea i know i remember that ...terrible affair

i also appreciate the fact that your a sponsor and nothing is free

and thats why i said "from my perspective"

but why say things like amateurish nightmare? especially out in public you did it again!! i just think there are better ways to criticise something

maybe you guys need an admin section where you can shout at each other without the public seeing it then you couldve put this post in both and had seperate input just an idea its what we do

all im trying to get across is the fact that for ME it is free

and maybe as a sponsor you had a right to call things "crap" and "cheap and nasty, it doesnt work, and it looks like you got the program from the bargain bin at "world of Forums" or "Forums 'R' Us"

you would have to pay me such a hell of a lot of money to earn yourself the right to talk to me like that after i spent probably hours trying to improve something

all respect to everyone involved you put it public so im just excercising my right to give my opinion:D

i can assure you the changes will be fixed, as the current layout/colours and display is default, and it's alrite at the moment till admin dan gets a chance to correct some stuff as hes very busy. It is to benifit you guys, there will be more features and it should run more efficently.

And everyone be weary about click links from people who arent known on the forum as shakey pointed out, one recent post has caused a bit of damage, but its something which I can't target unless you'd want links to be banned, making life difficult on the forum? bare with the current changes for a while please, n it'll be sorted out soon

regards Luke
