I have devised a way to add MORE colors for your font choices. when you go to quick reply or just reply to any topic you should now be able to choose from a full pallet instead of just a few preset colors.

Carbon, I want to give you some feedback. I really dont think you need more colours...less would be better. Latest or current posts would be better moved to the bottom of screen still allowing easy access but removing them from the sidelines.
Reduce the allowable size of avatars and signitures, because as it stands now many pages on your forum feature more about the user posting than what they have to say. The emphasis should be placed on what people have to say rather than who they are.
I view the internet as an information exchange, a well laid out site acts as an aid to this IE.
Please dont for one minute think I do not appreciate your efforts, I do. As it stands at the mo, when I view your site it seems cluttered. I constantly find my eyes wandering around the page, the first place my eyes fall should be to the body of content and not the avatars or sigs.
If I could ask only one thing of you it would be to move the latest posts to the bottom of the forum.

Reason......in the Western world we read left to right. At the mo I constantly find my eyes twitching to the sidelines even though I know there is nothing I want to read there.

Hope I have been constructive and do ot come across as overly critical, again I truely appreciate your efforts.

Few problems with the quick reply though, can't see the smilies or the "others" options (works fine in the full reply box tho)

There is not much I can do about people signatures except remove them totally so no one has them. As for avatar size it its only a 150 width. If someone manages to get a larger one then I usually change it for them.


As for the recent topics they either stay on the left, move to the right, or are removed completely. There is no chance of them being put on the bottom.

bit wierd at first as i was wondering where they were. seems fine i guess.
its only one click away... Smile

edit- it actualy makes reading the posts ALOT easier. no need to scroll back and forward. and instead of pressing 'forum', you just press 'home page' to have a look at new posts. simple. Very Happy

Holy sh**, anyone who knows me would have told you not to listen to anything I say. Thanks for listening Carbon, I like it and hope others do to....I am sure you will get some feedback over the next day or so.
Props for taking the time to reply and explain what you can and cannot do, I guess when it comes to sigs Homicidal_llama2 has a good example of when a sig can become destructive. Is it possible to impose a height restriction pixel wise??
Uber - props for what you are doing and I am sure will continue to do in the future.
It speaks volumes that you are willingto try new things and can institute changes so quickly.

You didnt have to changed couquis, right? I actually pm'ed him twice, once he changed it, then it was too big again. He changed it back, and seems like a cool guy. just kepp an eye on him, you may need to put his images through a resizer for him. I think he had to totally remove some good images because they were too big. maybe you could help him with getting those resized?
just a suggestion. Smile

I don't remove anyone's images, I might move them and re size them, but that is all.

Destructive? Are you joking n00by Mcn00bface? How can a sig be destructive? When I first put it up I got several Pms saying how people liked it. Now I may as well remove it because you can barely see the image at all.

Make it so that when you click on the image it brings you to the full version.

Lol sorry bud if I had noticed you were Welsh I would have found another example. CYMRU FTW. Yours was the first I came across so just joss. Yes it is a fine image, use of the word destructive was only meant in the sence that it stopped the flow of text.
If several posters in a row reply to a topic with that size sig it can be distracting and take up page space. In bad cases it could make a 3 page topic 5 pages gauranteeing someone would post without having read the middle 3 pages. Leading to an AWOL topic.

Just realised I have spent to much time on CODHQ and allways expect the worst to happen Sad

All in all, I should have used the word distracting and not destructive, you guys are seriously lucky you have the option for sigs. Depending on where Carbon takes this site in the future he might not be able to allways afford you that luxory. That would probably boil down to membership no# versus availible moderators. This site has potentiol to grow into something larger, so enjoy it now while its grass roots and homely.

So, sorry Homicidal_llama2, I will buy you a pint if your in Cardiff some time Very Happy

PS. I joined a few days before you...............noob Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy jk

Ha, ha, thats alright. I can always take things the wrong way on forums because you can't really judge the tone of what someone is saying from lines of text. I have to say I agree with you though. Before now whole threads have been stretched because of someones gigantic sig.

Ahahahaa, I do find it rather amusing that we're on a gaming forum and there are loads of pictures of half naked scene girls. Look at it this way though, at least the Boxxy phase appears to have ended!
