Hi there,

I've got problems with colors and layout. And something of my personal preference...

1. Until now, 1:10 AM March 24th 2003, the forum links were all blue and highlighted on mouse hover but today they're all black and no more highlight.

2. Some elements on PF pages are out of place when viewed with my browser, IE 6 (no SP1). There is a grey border around the used part of the page. On the upper-right corner the border ends without going the rest of its path up to embrace PF logo and that other blue-purple image. The PF logo also is a few pixels apart from that image and I can see the background white space between them. Up there, on the control row (user cp, register, ...) there is a similar gap between row elements. A few upper rows of the blue-purple image are shifted toward left while a few lower rows that neighbor the "search" item on control row are shifted toward right. And the blue-purple image, I really can't interpret it in any good words, it seems like a purple wheel on the upper-right side with a re-colored background from a Super Nova or another explosion; what is it after all?

3. It seems like the default layout has been changed intentionally. As a matter of taste, I preferred the previous one. The font in reply box was nicer. The reply box was smaller but fit better into the layout. The grey background on reply box had a good effect on me and now it's all gone.

4. Also flat style buttons are much better if available. A font with a larger average height/width ratio in the reply box would also look much better.


Regardless of layout, what lives on is the essence of PF! All the PFness of this place! And all its PFy member and PFy Admin! Hail!

I am using Opera 6 and nothing has changed for me. Can anyone else confirm what Silvo is saying? Silvo try updating your browser.

I tested Opera v6.05 build 1140 and layout problems still persist.

Don't you, for example, experience that upper-rows-left-shift on the blue-purple image? Perhaps I'm interpreting something that has been designed that way as something going wrong.
