    Thanks Kevriano, I can replicate your issue by setting the same resolution here. These days 1024x768 is definitely on the bottom end of the target display resolutions - but its a valid issue for netbooks and mobile devices. Noted and we'll see what we can do.

    Thanks. It's the maximum resolution for this screen, so I suspect the applies to iBook users and other older Macs.

    Looks reasonable but do miss the Get New button.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Thanks. And hopefully its coming back to a sub navigation bar right below the main navigation bar where you can directly click it. More than a few people have mentioned missing it, or having a hard time finding it - probably best to have it directly accessible.

    I understand Kevin's complaint. I often use my 12" iBook G4 and can understand just what he is talking about. 1024x768 is still a used resolution by many, not just people with older Macs as some have eyesight issues and turn the res down a bit. I have 2 friends that have to run 1024 to really see things.

    Also like was pointed out, a lot of Netbook screens will be cut off also. I do own and use an Acer Aspire One sometimes and some sites are a pain on it. Agreed though, Mac Forums is fine on my 1st Generation iPad.

    Just some more input on Kevin's issue.

    We'll likely figure out something on the 1024 resolution issue, just takes time to sort through the list we've compiled so far. This is on the list though.

    To put it in perspective however only in the interest of being familiar with our audience, this is a very detail oriented item. According to Google Analytics, less than 3.5% of visits to Mac-Forums are using a screen thats 1024x768. In comparison, 7.5% of visits come from resolutions of 320x480 (a common mobile resolution). Kinda interesting numbers when I just checked, so thought I'd share.

    That is good to hear. I use the Get New/New Post feature very often and I completely agree about the convenience. The requirement to hover isn't as convenient if a person uses the button as often as I do.

    I also agree with both points. White on white makes it extremely bright to look at. It does look pretty but I don't know if I want to look at it for long periods when reading the forum. The background can be white but I do think the floating white part should be a darker color. It could still be a light color since I dislike forums that uses black backgrounds but please just don't use white on white.

    The spacing also seems rather excessive. I've already forgotten what the spacing on the old design looked like so I can't remember the exact difference except that now one person's reply can take up almost my full screen.

    I also miss the centering of the reply text box section when I type a reply like in the old design. The new design has the reply box all the way to the left causing me to constantly turn my head to the left.

    Overall I do like the new forum so hopefully you don't get the wrong impression from my reply. As others have also mentioned there seems to be a only few minor changes to make it a better forum design.

    Matt, Rob one of our Mods from England can not even log in to Mac Forums. He wanted me to give you a heads up. Tried several browsers and nothing so he asked me if the forums are up and they are for me. he is in England.

    This is what he just told me in Chat.....

    i think its an issue with the 3.8.4 adless skin - cause i can access the new look before, but not after i log in - it just comes up totally blank. it says "thank you for logging in, robduckyworth" in the new style, then nothing.

    This "problem" sounds like the perfect excuse not to do his mod duties for the day. Just kidding Rob.
