I also forgot to mention the pics were easier to look for. I use to just scroll down and look for the avy's I liked and went there.


Also the hide forum function never seems to last more than about 5 mins. Can someone help me with that?

The colors are a little distracting. It makes speed reading much more difficult. I often find my eyes stopping on the sub-forum names instead of the topics. It may change after getting used to it though.

However this new design on the ‘Recent Posts’ tab is not exactly appearing the best, in my opinion, as it has become quite difficult to distinguish between the forums.

Like most on ATS I have particular forums I monitor but this new design is making that quite difficult. Whether or not you should reverse back is your decision but I strongly encourage you to at least make a single, independent, and unique color for each forum. Not pink for maybe 3 or 4 forums because that then becomes difficult to distinguish.


Dear Staff , I just wanted to quote the OP because this is exactly (and I mean exactly) the same way I feel about the recent changes to the recent posts page . Might I advise that if You do changes of this style, that You give the option to stay with the previous theme for those that might not like it or get confused by it .

I couldn't agree more.
I just logged on to find all my usual favourites in the recent posts almost impossible to distinguish.
I applaud the hard work put into this site... but maybe on this one occassion we could go back to the previous way?

It was well researched by Microsoft (love them or hate them) that most people are very visually oriented.

Their correct conclusions from decades ago into how people best use computers is why we're even here today right now reading and posting.

People are visual. Icons, avatars etc... My gawd... Why is ATS doing what they are doing to such a well designed site.

I don't particularly like all of the new 2010 scripting but I can deal with it.

The colors suck severely but I can deal with that too...

Taking away the icons on the "recent posts" page makes it virtually unusable.

It's my opinion that ATS has taken over by knuckle heads that feel the need to change change change with complete disregard for what has been proven to work (billions of dollars/Bill Gates/You don't have to like him.)

The owners are away dealing with lawsuits and other things owners must do ... MASSIVE appreciation to them.

No appreciation to the head of the 2010 design nor the decorator/color cordinator... Flames unto the chump that decided to remove the icons.

If I wanted Gopher I would run Mosaic and Trumpet Winsock under Windows For Workgroups. Or Slackware

Are we caught up in devo?

[edit to add:] Kudo's to the OP. I almost posted about this but it's always easier to delete shortcuts. [color=gold]* * * * * Too bad we can't star these posts. Many are spot on.

It is like a rainbow (colors could be more vivid though)! I don't mind it
It's better than the icons. Subtle and clean.

P.S. The color for BAN is the same as the dark background and doesn't show at all. FWIW

Reading the 2 above posters posts, I wonder if possible we can, like we do with avatars now, have a feature where we can turn forum icons on or if needs be, off. This should adhere to both sides then.

As much as I like ATS overall, I have to say I am not happy with this change. I start most of my searches with "recent posts" , and now find the format/colors uncomfortable to my eyes, which means I will spend less time
here.

It's looking a bit better already as far as the brightest of the bars. A suggestion would be to pull more colors from say the oranges and blues and greens (the brighter ones) that already appear elsewhere. And I of course would love a more vivid purple

I wasn't happy with the loss of "visual functionality" with the removed icons. A new set of smaller file-sized icons have been created, specific to the recent posts page... overall about 20% the file size of the previous PNG images used.

I would have to agree. When the icons were gone it was like a sea of text.

I THINK this is a bad thing... but I didnt even notice the change. I think I disregard the fluff and only ever read the words in the first place. I cant even recall what the icons were! So in my case.. the change is fine and Im okay with it..... as long as you keep the words in English Im happy.

yeah the Icons were AWESOME!!!!

Color scheme sucks (agreed). Being mostly on the breaking news and philosophy forums the posts I was most interested in were easy to spot.

Now its just a bloody mess.

I think its politics though.... ATS probably has a full time or part time site designer that has to make themselves look valuable to keep their job by constantly making changes and updates..... when in reality the Site was fine since like 5 years ago .....

Its the conspiracy of the ATS web designer who has to make themselves seem needed.

Exactly, it just breaks it up and creates a more readable and well spaced page.
Or it at least creates that impression... either way it's the same end result.

Looks a lot better now IMO.

It's a lot easier to find the type of topics I'm interested in now, which wasn't as easy before.

Thanks for the change.
