    I still have one of the old pages up.

    The line at the top has always been there, title or not. Probably wasn't noticed because the old design wasn't as clean as this one.

    Maybe time to re-think now that it's noticeable.

    yeah, don't like the constant font size ... we old people need to be able to make our fonts larger.

    When you view the forum from firefox, it looks great!

    However, when you view it in chrome, the font is a fixed size. That's a real problem for those of us with poor eyesight (including me :p), as zooming into the page no longer increases the font size. :(

    For multiquotes, hit the multiquote button on all but the last post you want to quote. Then hit the normal quote button on the final post you want to quote, and they'll all be there.

    I'm not sure what you mean about deleting quotes though. You can just edit your post and remove everything between the [quote][/quote] tags to remove a quote.

    Looks like a super improvement over the old. Maybe it's my monitor idk, but the button fonts look like they need sharpening or the font looks funky? The work that goes into this is much appreciated by me so thank you ;)

    I like the overall design much better... however, you youngsters, please spare a thought for the old farts, like me, who are at an age where reading glasses and slightly larger fonts are a must.

    It's not my fault that I was born too early!

    I'm browsing on firefox for the moment. Zooming in on that does increase font size as you would expect.

    Is there a way to put an acceleration or delay factor in the top-of-page mouse-overs for the Phandroid sites?

    When I use the browser update tool or type in a url, it causes annoying flashing as I mouse past them.

    And I know that this won't fit with policy, but I still think that having a million people learn that while in the forums, Home != Forums home, you have to slide over to the Forums on the other side - is kind of wrong.

    The Phandroid logo just above the Home does the same thing. Maybe just move the Forums to the far left and drop Home, both from here and Phandroid.com. I think that's better and is simpler.

    No one, I think, is going to use the smaller Home button to get to Phandroid when the web de facto standard exists - tap the logo.

    PS - plus it puts Forums and Phandroid links closer together. ;)

    I like it, but make the white more gray and it'll be better.

    Way too bright. Hurts my eyes and the posts are harder to read.

    Came here to say that. The old nav-bars must have had a built in delay, as they never used to open when you just skimmed past them with the mouse.

    Thanks and like are basically the same thing, except one keeps a tab at the top of the thread highlighting the top clicked. Which is useful.

    I fail to understand why one might choose "thanks" instead!

    Is there a desire for the more simple graphics such as the edit/quote/thanks buttons etc? Are web 2.0 buttons not desired, they seem to be a little more modern. Not trying to shake things up too much though, it's the former themer in me. :)

    I love the redesign.


    This is probably a little nitpicky at this point but should the first new post icon([​IMG]) have the same look as the goto last post icon([​IMG])?

    After looking to see what is the purpose of that line, I now see that its needed for separating the topic and body of a thread. &#12484;

    I agree.

    However, there is the issue of tapatalk not currently supporting likes, whereas it does support thanks.
