Ok,

Have seen the comments about the look of this forum being shit and stuff.

Firstly, it is a work in progress. Also under your User CP under Edit Options you can move the post info to the top of the post or the left. Can't remember what the default is.

Trust me, it will change over the next few days/weeks (well it is Christmas after all!).

Bear with us please

You have to choose the location when you join, I picked top at first although now I run it the more traditional way of on the left which makes it look better.

I like this new vBulletin and the new layout. NIce touch with the Christmas logo at the top. :)

I've already started to abuse people's reputations.

My two cents:

Remove the borders around each separate post in a thread, and make each post alternate light green/dark green.

Everything else is cool, although I'd prefer 'quick reply' actually written on the quick reply button. Also, when you insert an image, it asks you to insert text rather than insert the url.

What does the little yellow/black icon represent on the shortcut link on my browser? The game.net site had the same icon.

There appears to be new postcount-related titles.

What are they? :)

This quick reply thing can save precious seconds in an emergency.

It confuses me a great deal... I'm sure I'll get used to it, though.

The forum design looks nice. But can't beat the Barrysworld one!

I didn't really post much on the Barrysworld forum, I just tended to lurk a lot. I'll post a bit more on this one though:}

Getting used to the forum front page is difficult, can't belive the moaning when BW changed from that to the index being used at present, and yet I find it very hard to go back to this layout.

Yep, the BW index atm is great to use, mainly because there are so many subforums.

I like the new layout in all honesty. It's easier to read than BW imo, and the quote boxes are much funkier. I like being able to see who else is viewing the same thread as me aswell. In fact the only thing I can find to complain about is the lack of camel pr0n. Pls admin, sort this out thx bye.

I just don't like the front page of it all. Looks a bit cluttered. I think these lot are just getting used to the new VB.

We will get it right but with Christmas around the corner it will take time. So many things to do so little time.....

I think its a decent forum, a good load of customization options. The structure *could* be better though.

Is it possible to reduce the amount of space taken up at the top of the page, by the subforums, and other stuff? On my 1280x1024, the threads don't start until about 80% of the way down the screen.

That all down to the forum structure, if they alter that, your problem will be fixed. But until then, whithout some major edits to the Forumdisplay templates it'll stay that way.

It's because while it's more vb2 it's not quite, which makes it harder.

On another tangent forum display template editing seems way ott since unless VB3 is radically wank in comparison to VB2 a lot of that could be solved with better grouping.
