I can understand that, I guess if I have to lol, though is there anywhere on the site that we can go to see the newest posts, regardless of flags or replies and without going into each forum? If there isn't, is there anyway to dedicate a whole page to the information that used to be on the side? Maybe there already is one and I just don't know about it?

Other than that, I like the look.


Also, is there a way to "single" a post, like with the old layout? I found that option useful for keeping records of very well thought-out posts.

Site looks super cool...I'm not afraid of change!

Bold move forward in my opinion...new look looks pretty.

I will say I will miss the side menu telling me the most recent posts and most active new posts...I did use that a lot.

Other then that, all looks absolutely awesome, and I'm sure I'll get over the missing side menu.

Thanks for all the hard work!

The new look will take a little getting use to but I can dig it yo.

I absolutely love this thank-you so much for all the work that you guys have obviously put in ... it looks amazing.

I especially like the sidebar where you can now easily find the posts a member has made in the thread you are reading ... it makes things so much easier.

Did I say that I absolutely love it

It's not unnecessary clutter though, it's peoples' sigs. People put important and personal stuff in there.

I don't really see the point of having sigs that are SO small that they're almost impossible to read without zooming in.....?

1029a fixed it. Thanks!

PS: I too miss the little "new threads" list on the right side of the page, but I can see how the screen real-estate could be better used.

New update looks great!

Hi, SO. Sorry to bother you, but I noticed that the "one of your friends" bar has been removed (in the forums, it still shows when I visit their profiles) and I was wondering if that's going to be a permanent change or just temporary? Everything else looks awesome!

Thanks for your time,


-TheAssoc.

No clutter indeed!

That post right there is an entire screen, so not much in the way of clutter or content.

So any post that is somewhat brief combined with an avatar that is somewhat large produces one post per page with almost nothing to read ... unless of course someone wants to post in their signature, within which one can write a dissertation.

20 scrolls for a 20 post thread page if one isn't on an ipad ... as predicted earlier on this thread.

How efficient!


On the other hand the new color scheme looks great., so there's that.

Thanks sdog, you are right.

The posts already take up a huge amount of space anyway, so increasing the default font size for sigs won't make any difference. And, it'll make them a helluva lot easier to read!

What? Will you explain that to me a little slower? Lol...

I'm using Mint9 with latest Firefox.

Were you able to fix the settings so that the zoom feature affects the whole screen (incl. type) proportionally and were you able to fix the issue with the search bar stretching into the margins? I'd love to be able to un-install the nosquint add on. I don't use it for anything other than this site.

That is in the list of next steps... a smaller maximum height for avatars. However, we can't do that overnight and need to give people plenty of time to modify their avatars for the change.

What would be the new avatar dimensions?

Most-likely a 240 pixel maximum height for the avatar, no height limit for backgrounds.



This was an intense day of code... the new thread layout, and changing over to it, is completely rewritten back-end code and front-end style/layout. Even though it was 99% done as of yesterday, there was a long-list of piecemeal adjustments to make in the transition from development area to live site. So if you don't mind, I'm off to cook my signature burritos and swill a few margaritas... but I'll be back to check on this thread in a few hours.

I'll be working on an idea to bring ATS live content into the thread pages, but in a click-to-show/click-to-hide format that won't change the page layout. Stay tuned.

I've been looking around;
This option still seems to be available via the Profile page of the poster.

Good work, SO - have a well deserved break, tonight!
Cheers!

has anyone mentioned yet that the link to the Sub-forum at the top of the thread sends us to a broken link? (in all forums/threads, not just this one. for example, the "ATS BOARDS BUSNIESS link at the top of this thread sends me to this link .abovetopsecret.com...

EDIT: ah, i see now it is broken because of the "." in front of the 'abovetopsecret'

My opinion as a new-ish user? It seems like there has been fairly major changes to lay outs every week or so. And this last one seems quite ugly and user-un friendly.

Will it every settle on one format?

I give much props for the new look, and I believe I will like it.

You mentioned "no height limit for backgrounds", and I assume this means image backgrounds for avatars. If I am mistaken, please correct me.

This is the background image I am currently using, but as you can see, it is not showing up on my avatar in full:


My question is if there is no limit on Avatar background image, is this a temporary flaw, or is this a permanent part of the ATS 2010 look?

thanks,
ET

It is in fact, just one new "re-do", but it is being phased in gradually (see SO's explanation at the beginning of this thread) due to an intensive, mind-bending coding process, and probably also, to not throw us all into a state of shock by presenting it all at once.
I'm actually rather thankful for the progressive phasing-in.
