    I think the first one is a little better.
    Also, the search link on the second points to 'http://search.php'. It looks like someone used a relative URL.

        Thanks converge for fixing that and asbestos for the report.

        Klepto's suggestions to use the legacy vertical display instead of the newer horizontal display is now being tested. Feedback, positive or negative, is welcome, but the actual decision is up to the mods.

          initial reaction... i didn't like it. the new format was making the left column (the one containing the avatar and user info) an inconsistent width. i felt that the varying widths of the columns in each post made it hard to follow the conversation flow. this seems to have been fixed (almost immediately... way to go, uber-coders) things seem to be totally even in width now. maybe a change was just made, maybe i was just seeing things. if it stays consistent and even then i'm on board.

            The new layout is awesome. I like it a lot. Only complaint is the lack of borders around the avatars, posts, etc. Could it be something more like the 'topic overview' when responding to a post?

            Other than that, it's really nice.

              I don't do any coding around, here... all I do is move my mouse, select options, and occasionally touch a keyboard. O:-)

              This interface is actually an older format that was coded as part of the software. All we did was to enable it.

              Would you explain this with more detail? I'm not quite understanding the request.

                Let me take a picture because I'm not real good with explaining.
                Image here.

                Borders just like that as opposed to how it is now, with everything just kind of there.

                Perhaps I'm one of the few, but I think borders make it look better, visual, then just having the colors flow into one another

                  Ok. Here you go. Let's see what people have to say about it.

                    To be honest, I don't like it. It makes the pages look really busy and I find it a lot harder to locate information.

                    The new layour with the avatars on the left rocks, though. We should keep that and hug it and squeeze it and call it George.

                      We'll keep it this way for more for ~12 hours for more feedback, and then return it back to the way it was the the "veterical view" (avatars on the left without this last change) which has been mostly well received.

                        Yeah.. at first I thought it was my VNC gone wrong.. I definately like it much more with colors blended to the backdrop ... it seperated fields but was far less obtrusive.

                          Left Avatars = Good.
                          New boarders = Bad!

                            I have seen what Deviant reported with the shifting tables... it appears that a user that does not fill the max cell length (in some browsers) will have short cells than other users that do reach the standard cell size because of how relative sizes are used within the table design.. upside of seperate tables for each post is that they will load seperately instead of waiting for the entire thread page to load before viewing.. downside is that cell metrics are calculated individually and in some threads the size of the content is greater than the content forced cell size in the avatar section.

                            I would go so far as to wishing we could eliminate some of the whitespace forced between posts by its timestamp being left above ... I realize thats probably not possible, but the shift left definately makes for faster thread reading.
                            if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.

                              The new boarders took me by suprise. I like the new spaceing, as converge says, it makes for faster reading.

                                make it stop... make it stop!!

                                seriously, it's making my eyes bleed. or maybe that's just the drugs. the borders might be a good thing if they were only one pixel wide and a soft, grey color.
