I'd just like to take this time to thank the site administrators for this site. It was been a great help.

New layout looks great. Love the riveted graphics!

Also, whenever I click on a link from the Portal, it takes me to the first post in a thread, not the last one I read. I really don't want to read through all 9,000+ posts in the "TinCrumpet Vacations" thread every time, no matter how much I enjoy the thread.

I like the new look. The 60s style nameplate for "AIR FORUMS" is a nice design touch. The flipped image is really buggin' me though.

On edit, there's the buddy list up on top on the right instead of on the left at the bottom. I just saw it as soon as I submitted.

On another edit, it's not there on the Portal any more, just on the other links from the portal. Different.

maybe this was already covered in earlier posts, but anyway:

to me the main board looks somewhat cramped.

in the center panel less than 1/2 of the width contains forum content,

on the right side about 1/3 of the overall space contains ads and info

and on the left side about 1/5 contains member data.

the ads/info uses up much of the right side and then half-way down the
page there is only wasted blank space.

maybe the ad section width can be reduced by half and run all the way down the right side of the page.

this would free up extra space so that the actual topic discussion area could be expanded for easier viewing.

otherwise a great success by all involved!

This is the problem with fixed width tables.
On my screen I have more side decoration ( rivet panels ) than actual forum real-estate.

Thanks for all the hard work. I like the clean look and drop down menus. But, gotta tell you that I won't be able to spend as much time on the forum in the future....it's just too bright!

I like the new look, too, but I have to agree. The white background is awfully bright. Perhaps a muted gray? Light Blue? muted Silver?

two questions....for now

1....How do I set up the thread so that I am looking at the point where I last read....not the beginning?

2....What are the colored windows in the trailer types listings?


Oh, one more thing. Thanks for getting rid of that idiotic flipping corner advertisement.

1. I wasn't aware this had changed. but will see what I can find out.

2. The colored windows show (new) unread content.

3. It's still there - just waaaaay over on the right side.
