I'm glad http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Is there any other feedback? Like/dislike? Text that's hard to see? Etc

I quite like it, in that's it more reflects Haze' style, and looks more 'professional', but I think the yellow text is definetly hard to read. I wouldn't necessarily say change it, but a larger font would be advisable I think - yellow and small is definetly a difficult reading combination! (It's also difficult to make out your purple 'yardc0re dvil' text mate).

Besides that, good work.

Looks great. Dont change the color of the text, it's great.

The only thing which is hard (almost impossible) to read is your forum title. By highlighting it I see it says "yardcore dvil".

Yeah, the formatting options (black) are very hard to distinguish from the brown background.

Personally I don't like the font of the text.
It would be fine, but like this it's unreadable. Maybe a bigger size should solve it, or sanserif font like arial or univers?

Still wish they'd just move this over to a dedicated board system. I guess it's stable now, but the formatting system is the least intuitive such system I've seen in a good while.

This text is far more readable than it was previously in my opinion...

Yeah, after a bit of settling in, I think I prefer the new look overall. Few comments:

- I do find the standard font a little bit unreadable - as others have suggested, I think a change of font or just a size increase would probably improve this.
- The font colour in the 'reply' box is a sortof mid-grey which is a bit too feint for my liking - could we deepen the colour a little to make the reply box clearer?
- Also in the reply window, the background colour is a very dark grey which makes it very hard to see the text style (bold, italic, etc.) buttons - they either need to change colour or the dark grey needs to be a bit less, um, dark.

Otherwise it's another fine piece of Mantel branding. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think this might be what BuddyFlashheart was getting at, but the formatting 'icons' for Bold, Italics, etc. when submitting a message are completely unreadable.

Otherwise, I've always been a fan of Black and Gold.... My old high-school's official colors. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I now see what you guys have been saying (I was on my laptop before b/c I did a reformat on my main PC and had to iron out some inet issues), and so with Firefox up I now see indeed that the text is a little eye-hurting at first- but not to the point of being unreadable. My only complaint with the font is that it tends to bunch together a bit too much- especially when combined with such a relatively bright text color which seems to make the text more expansive than it is and overall adds to the feeling that the text is a little overly bunched. If that could be corrected, it would be fine.

The text in the new post page should be easier to read now too!

Unfortunately nothing can be done about the URL, B, I, etc, buttons on that page http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
