I've noticed what seems to be different changes to the forum layout over the last couple of days. Glad to see the horrible pink post header has gone in favour of the greeny yellow as it is at the moment. 11:30 28/7 but is this layout staying??

The bottom bars moved up, banners to the right side and the written text goes down too far. It looks like the post has finished before the text has been added.

Is this just a trial idea, it's not staying like it is it?

I've got no problem with changes, it keeps things fresh but don't like it as it is. It looks a bit messy and confusing when the are a lot of posts in a thread.

Just mt little bit of feed back

All the best

This new look of the forums will stay like this.

Nowadays Jim is still working on it.
By this new design we can see 30 posts on a page and we can post 800 pixels wide pictures.

For anyone who posts on Timelines or PlanetFigure I would think this format is already pretty familiar. Not that I am copying them, but this is the general evolution of the linear forum system.

The colors may change per site in the near future.

May be it was still being worked on when I saw it first.
The posts all ran into one another with no separation, now they're in their own boxes it is much better and easy to follow.

You know... you go on vacation for a few days and return to everything having changed! LOL

Actually, the new format appeals to me. I'm not so sure about the bubonic brown colour scheme for HF - I would have prefered our good old black and grey - but overall I like the new format.

Good job chief!
