Just another question.

Is there any reason why the IMG Code is OFF in the edit signature screen??

I have just found that if you hover the pointer over the title of each thread up pops the first entry. (Although not all of them). A very clever bit of kit

Does anyone else find the colours a bit pale? I can hardly tell the difference between old and new threads.

The colours seem ok to me, not that I am oposed to a bit of contrast you understand.

I see what you mean Keith. John is using about 4/5 diferent shades of blue and packing more data onscreen seems to mean smaller icons and therefore it tests the old eyesight a bit. I struggle especially with "is the envelope open or not" bit on the RIBnet Forums home page.

'Washed out' is how I would describe it Brian.

The colour scheme itself is as near to unchanged as I could get it. I do think that the thread icons (the envelopes) do look a bit ghostly though and I'll have a look at changing them.

I'm still not convinced about avatars, as I really don't think that they would add anything to the forums. I may make them an option at some time. The profile section alongside each post is already quite big, and would get even bigger. Manos, I know that you want an avatar. Telling me over and over again won't make any difference!

Image tag is turned off in signatures to stop you putting pictures there

I won't have much time to sort anything out over the next few days, as I've got a brand new baby daughter to play with (Florence Louise, born 3 April, 6lb 8). I managed to do the upgrade while Becky was in labour (!) but I'm a bit busy now.

So have an explore, keep on letting me know what you like and don't like about the new forums, and I will get back to you before too long!

Cheers
John
