    While browsing PF just now, the way posts in threads are displayed changed. I assume on purpose?

    I don't mind the new format, but I do have one suggestion: if the posters' names are going to appear in the blue title bar, they need to be in a light color. As it is now I have to squint to make them out.

    Greg is testing things. It's not permanent yet.

    Well, you are, but that's irrelevant.

    Whatever he's doing, it's not working on an iPad - title and author/date bars are on top of one another.

    Is it possible to take a screenshot?

    There will be many adjustments in the next couple days. The goal of this is the prioritize the content.

    The "online users" box is not right:

    I'll post screen shots of odd things as I find them.

    Hey!!! I paid good money to get that avatar and now it's microscopic. Talk about devaluation! I like the bigger ones. Sometimes they are the best thing in the thread. :frown:

    Hopefully the avatars will be restored as they identify members. Many people even get upset when well known members change their avatars, it becomes a symbol of who they are.

    Uh oh, the members online background has turned dark blue and gold members are no longer highlighted.

    It's a problem. I really dislike it, but for now, it's all I can do to make it legible.

    :tongue: I'm just giving a play by play, I will shut up now and go watch Masterchef UK Professionals. :!!)

    I actually like the dark blue, if now it could show gold members. Makes it easier to see who's online and how many gold members are on (something I've been counting since we started gold).

    I feel like I have to scan through the title bar to figure out who made the post. Most free members have their names pop up right at the start, but when you add an avatar, mentor title etc. before the name, my eyes will usually jump to the beginning and work their way across from there.

    Please consider the torment that my eyes are going through :tongue:

    I can rearrange the elements if others feel this way

    Well, I'm not sure how I'd feel about the mentor tag going after the name either. I felt like it worked in the old format when each detail was in its own row, but that might also just be because it's what we became accustomed to. So carry on!

    Oh, and change scares me.

    edit: Now that I've seen it, I much prefer the names being at the beginning with everything else afterwards.

    I want the avatars back to normal, the rest can be in one bar. My avatar can't be seen, other's are even worse, not worth having it anymore. Just look at dl's, wtheck is that?
