Coming Soon -- CurlTalk Redesign :)

Ha, no I didn't think you were. I was just saying that because I thought it was funny that the new design makes it so hard to read that I didn't realize I was reading about the new design because it was so hard to read :-)
I'm not good with change. This is odd - too much white 'open-ness'. not enough hmm... demarcation between things.
Middle of the night word-finding-difficulties here, maybe I should repost when I can think properly!

Our first intention was to do no harm, but I do understand that with the style change somethings might not be as obvious as they might have been before. How were you able to see which posts were unread before? Unfortunately when we are re-styling something some of these functionalities, these subtleties are lost.
This is what you see with a multiple quote, way to difficult to distinguish who's saying what.

Thanks!

I'm mostly on my phone, only checked it from a computer quickly. That was the only big issue I saw. Maybe shades of grey for the quoted stuff? And outlined in boxes.

I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

This is the final look? I thought this was an "under construction" patch.

What happened to "go unread post" button? I need that button!!!

I see the View First Unread in my upper right hand corner.

But why can't i see any of the pics in the charades game? I am using IE but also tried in Chrome. Nothing. Just little boxes.

It's just all too open somehow, and too white. Apart from the great big black numbers indicating the no. of posts and views!
For me (and I realise it's probably only a problem for me) having the posts saying 1 day ago or 16 hours ago is too vague - I like having the actual time there so I can see what's been posted since I was last here (I always look at the time of my last visit as I'm so often out of sync with the rest of you with the time difference).

The signatures also need to be in a box or something, they look like they are part of the post.

You know what's funny. Literally just a couple days ago I was peeking around on another forum and thought to myself, "I sure love our design, I couldn't get used to this." And bam, now it's changed and even worse than the one I was looking at!!

I tried to be nice about my opinion, but the more I sift through this forum the more I can't stand it. I understand their reasoning, but why fix something that's not broken? And just to match the rest of the site. I think the forum should be a separate look. Of course, I find the main website horribly designed. Sorry if one of the designers are reading this... it may be contemporary, but it's definitely not user friendly.

Our first intention was to do no harm, but I do understand that with the style change somethings might not be as obvious as they might have been before. How were you able to see which posts were unread before? Unfortunately when we are re-styling something some of these functionalities, these subtleties are lost.

This is very annoying and time consuming.

I can also no longer see which forums have unread posts or mark all posts read, even from inside the forum. I also can't see my notifications only that I have notifications.

Still, I miss the clickable icon to just go to the first unread post instead of having to click to view the thread, then click again to get to the first unread.

Also, I'd like to see links in posts and siggies colorized again, or at least distinguishable in some fashion besides hovering over them. For instance, until the redesign, the word IAGirl's in my siggy was hyperlinked to the recipe. After the redesign, unless someone systematically hovered over everything, there was no way to tell I had that hyperlinked. I've since changed mine and hyperlinked the word link, within parentheses, but it's sort of a clunky workaround, I think.

I'm having difficulty multi-quoting, I click the multi-quote button like I would before and nothing happens.

Plus the multi-quotes in the discussions are not broken up to see who quoted what. Before there were boxes around them to show who posted, who quoted, and what you quoted. I was going to give an example here, but can't get the button to work.
