Thanks for the improvement, my suggestions.....
Quite a shock this mornging, to see such a drastic change in the forum. Will take a little getting used to, but the speed is SO MUCH BETTER. It's nice to have someone actually working to IMPROVE the site, unlike others, who just let sites sit. A pro-active administrator is definetely nice to have.
Anyways, my suggestions:
1) A new color scheme similar to the old style was a little more pleasing than the current one. I could do without the gray and white lines. Or, maybe one post and all replies related to that post could be gray, while adjacent posts are an alternate color. Then, we could just glance at the post, and see all the replies related to that post, simply because they have the same color background.
2) Some old features, like the 'new' icon would be nice.
3) A LARGER MESSAGE BOX to type in. Small message boxes are very annoying, since sentences seem to turn into paragraphs. It's hard to see what you're typing.
4) A LARGER FORUM that doesn't wrap text. This makes it hard to dicern between reply's and original posts.
Once again, thanks for the work on your part. We all appreciate your efforts on trying to improve this site. Thanks for being such an attentive administrator.
