It looks good now, I like the new look. It appears to be a change in progress
I didn't see this thread and I started a new one. I'll put a link and ask for it to be closed.
Edit: here's the link: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/104657
Change! Nooooo! D: I'm going to curl up in a ball beneath my desk and whimper until it's back to normal, or until I learn it's a final change and I've properly adjusted.
I need to be better at adjusting to change.
I'm not terribly happy with the look just yet. Maybe it'll grow on me, I dunno. I do like the typeface that is being used, and I like the larger font. But the spread-across-the-screen look just doesn't do it for me. At least, not yet.
On the other hand......
In Threaded view, this spread may be an improvement, since replies to replies to replies keep getting squeezed (squoze? LOL) too far to the right to even see.
I guess I'll backtrack and reserve judgment until I know what's going on.
I can't believe what I'm seeing. With all the garbage going on about Pinterest today, and with HP in a mudslide about traffic over the last year, why are you messing with forum formats? I really hope I'm seeing a glitch of some kind. This new format sucks.
Here is a blog post about the forum change:
The biggest beef I have with this change is how small everything is. I cannot look at avatars and reply/report buttons without straining my eyes. Sure, I can increase the zoom on my browser, but I don't have to do that anywhere else.
Also, they are slapping a serif font for the forum posts, where the rest of the site, including usernames and reply buttons associated with forum posts, is sans serif. Doesn't look too good to me.
The forums are so new and improved, they broke a lot of things...
Whatever happened to the days when admin used to test new things before launching them?
This is their test. They will see how many users are affected, and who complains about what. Though I don't see why they couldn't test it accross platforms before making it live, as I have heard people complain about iPad, laptop screen resoluation, etc. etc.

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

Some of us are encountering an issue in the forum. On the front page, it will indicate that responses have been made since we last participated in a thread, but when we click on the name of the most recent respondent, rather than being taken to that response, we come to the start of the last page...

I would wipe off especially the religion topic as I hate religion big time and wish it never existed.I would abolish the 3day ban rule and opt for just deleting personal attack comments.I would chose to pay members who are active participants in the forum.I would give a bonus $1,000 prize to the...

I generally avoid the non-HP-related sections of the forums (categories like books and sports). Partly it's because all the religious and political discussions distress me, partly it's because it's a time-waster.But mainly, it seems like an awful lot of the output and discussions in those forums...

We recently made a small change to how forum notifications work. Previously you had an option to get a notification when someone replied directly to your post. Now you have an option to "Follow" the forum topic. Not only will "following" notify you when someone...

Paid forum posting is a business that's growing rapidly because of the glut of money in politics and the desire of commercial interests to promote their products and to blunt criticism.Should paid forum posters be forced to acknowledge that they are being paid? Should they be banned from posting...
