We're beta testing the new forum interface in here.

Please let me know if you experience problems, dislike something or would like a different solution to something.

Regards,
Johan

I am not sure I like the squares around peoples names etc. and I think the removal button might get overused but other that that, I really like it.

I agree I think the removal button will get overused. Other than that it is really cool... umm, when will the other forums change?

Arrivederci

I agree, the "Suggest Deletion" button will be used often.

Don't worry about the delete button. I will still be the judge of whether a post is to be deleted or not. It's not possible to "overuse" the button.

Cheers,
Johan

I really like it - just not sure what it means if the folder is coloured red? The number of times the topic has been viewed is also a great idea. I would still like to see a modification on the 'Change Forum' bars allowing one to right click on them and 'Open In New Browser'. I e-mailed you about this two weeks ago, but perhaps you've been busy!

Folders:
blue = old (read) post
dark red = new reply to a old (read) post.
bright red = new post
flame = post with over 50 replies
lock = archived post

I'll add that to the help when the opportunity presents itself.

Regards,
Johan

Starship,
Yeah, I got that. I'm considering updating that "change forum" function but worry that it will take up too much space. Will ponder...

Thanks, Johan. I like the idea of the buttons, however the format of the responses appears a bit cluttered to me. Perhaps the buttons could be moved to the first line as it is in the initial postings. That looks a lot cleaner to me.

Thanks

Ctbarnes,
Alright, how's this? They are all level now. However, I could not put them at the top of each reply as that doesn't leave enough room for the topic. Have a look at some post with a long topic and you'll see what I mean.

Thanks,
Johan

Thanks Johan, that looks better. Having the suggested deletion button last will also prevent me from hitting it accidently.

Don't worry about hitting the "Suggest Deletion" button. Please try and you'll notice that you'll need to check some radio button before something actually happens.

Modifications look nice. However you might want to adjust the flaming folder graphic a bit. I have my browser set to loop images only once, so once the loop is completed it just sits on the last frame, in which just 3 pixels of the flame remain. You might want to change the image so that the last frame shows a bit more so that it's obvious that this is a "hot topic".

Johan, I think the topic list just "unraveled," showing a list of the most recent responses rather than just the topics.

I think we could really do without the frames. Other than that it is great.

More thinking... using the folder icon for the main post is appropriate since you can think of each topic as a folder with all the messages inside. So the individual messages shouldn't have folder icons.

If you want some other icon, perhaps a little message icon. I've also seen some boards (particularily those that run UltimateBulletinBoard software, like at http://www.planebusiness.com) that allow each poster to pick from several icons. Silly but neat and adds variety.

Of course if you're planning on fully-threading the boards (in other words, make it so that replies to a reply show up as a reply to that message rather than a reply to just the original) then having folder icons for each would make sense.

I like the new interface. Those three buttons look nice... However, I agree that the Suggest Deletion button will be used too often and unless Johan is implementing an automated system for analysis, it's gonna just add up workload...

Johan,

I was just gonna suggest, if not considered already, a different folder icon colour/shape for messages from Administrators (alternative to turning them bold).
