To Site Owner- SkepticOverlord, Thanks for asking....
It's a generally overall cleaner look... which translates into an easier interface to work with, where one can read and interact longer- with less
eye-fatigue. Great job!! The curved corners are polished and have a more modern look.
I do have some comments about it, BTW:
-What is that little 'person' icon at the bottom of each poster, all the way down, left in the square? I think it's for 'Member'... Is it possible for
a html Title to appear when the mouse of over it - as a hint? An html Title which includes the userid in it would be really cool.
-Suggestion I posted in a different thread
today... A copy is below:
You know the page numbers at the top of the thread.... like this >
...there should be a 'last' option, to immediately bring the user to the last page. These should be duplicated at the bottom as well.
They don't have to be so big... maybe put them in a toolbar (in the same location?) would spiff them up some.
Customizable color scheme.....
And my fave... have a two-tiered thread system... ATS Thread
In the thread, armap
pointed out to me that the leading and trailing arrows by the page numbers are
first and last, respectively...
After all this time, I just found that out... Maybe the words are better.
-In the top ribbon all the way to the right, I see a color-scheme changer.... Wow...
-I noticed that the post content area is a bit narrower. That's probably OK. It'll probably grow on me... I have a hunch that this is done for mobile
user readability. There seems to be too much space wasted between the posted content and the advertisements to the right, IMHO.
-I like how the links- 'link edit', 'quote', and 'reply' symbols light up when they are moused over. Is it possible to extend the 'lighting up effect'
to the associated words as well? Because as it is now, when you click on the words, nothing happens.
-Oh ya... a big one, maybe. I went browsing through the members directory, and saw something interesting. I saw many member ids that were created in
the prehistoric era, with not one post. It seems that some ppl just wanted to save their fave userid, just in case. After all this time has elapsed,
approx.: 20 years I'm guessing, maybe they should be freed up for ppl who might want them?
-Always kind of seen 'My ATS' and 'Tools' to be in the group of 'all that stuff'.... stuff that I use on occasion. Because when I look for one of
those functions that I don't use that much, I'm constantly clicking on both
, because I can't remember what is where. Saying that,
possibly they can be combined. Or put the little down-arrow button right next to 'myATS', with the Logout button all the way to the right? Just a
-Note to self: review 'archive' button in top ribbon.
Thanks again for asking...
-What is the difference between Top and Hot? It's not obviously clear to me. I like the infinite-list style of New. Do we need HTML Titles to explain
-I noticed that the bottom part of the last line of my signature for MarkJS is not displayed... Maybe it's just my computer? dunno.
