I like the new board. Didn't have any problem getting the new password. This is my first message under the new format. Hope it works.

Thanks for your feedback. Bear with us for a bit while we work out a couple of kinks. Hopefully, most can be resolved Friday. wink.gif

This is just the beginning, we'll have additional new features coming closer to start of season but our primary goal at this point is to make sure that everyone gets comfortable with the initial changes.

If you have any questions please post here or send a PM to us and we'll assist.

Yay, sigs and avatars! Finally!

Yay! Unnecessary clutter that adds nothing and makes the board look like every other forum on the internet!

Oh, you can turn them off. Thank god.

Besides the "Delete Posts" button, what else sucks about the usability?

The "quote" and "reply" buttons don't match up with the proper post.



As you can see, the "quote" and "reply" button are in the same header area as post #2, and in the same area as the author of post #2; however, they actually are the buttons for post #1. Same for the "top" and "report" buttons. This is very annoying.

I really like the look of the new boards and the tools are awesome, but it's going to take some getting used to for all of us I'm sure.

Great job, folks!

I took me 4 times of resending account info and cutting and pasting before it finally worked.

If this is some sort of "Idot Proofer" alot people around here will fail.

Mayoly, I think this is more of a design issue that we're just not used to. If you look at a page with a bunch of posts as a whole, the blue bar acts as a divider between posts, and there's an implied delineator between the top and bottom halfs of the blue bar. I added dotted lines here to show the implied delineator:

Well the "design issue" sucks. There is no implied delineation since elements relating to both above and below posts are contained within the same boxed area. Drawing or visualizing an imaginary dashed line does not make for an implied delineation either. There is no design element to imply any sort of delineation or demarcation. In fact, the top of the blue box has a hard line whereas the bottom of the blue box has none, further suggesting that everything in the blue box is associated with the following post. THAT's implication.

There is a reason every other forum on the internet has sigs and avatars: it's what people want. Plus, it helps to distinguish specific posters when you are reading through a thread.

Until someone inevitably does something which gets them taken away.

I agree that the separation needs to be more obvious. Most usability issues can't be tested until we have regular users in front of it, so there will be plenty of tweaking of the design in the days and weeks to come.
I'll try to do something about the post spacing today.

Hopefully things will suck less very soon, Mr. Mayoly.

OK, try it now.

Still no delete. Also, you can't quote more than one response at time like on the old board.

sure...

example 1

go to the Rockets game thread.....

the posts look out of order...

example 2

goto the "great article" thread...

the posts are out of order, some of my posts giving the OP a hard time are deleted (probably for the better...hehehe)....the quoted text isn't there.....etc....



OK, posts should be in order now. I haven't looked everywhere, but it seems OK so far.

If anyone sees them wrong somewhere, reply please.
