    Re: PC Perspective Forums Upgrade Bug/Style Reporting Thread

    Not real fond of the new style. Like the front page there is just too much blank space on each side of the content. Doubt you'd need much more than a 15" monitor as it only fills about 1/3 of my screen. Are you going tall and skinny to attract the tablet/smartphone crowd?

    +10000 to this. I hate the format when on a widescreen monitor. Hopefully you will allow themes with the new site (I used the old AMD classic theme) if someone makes them. Otherwise I see he forums becoming more desolate than they are now.

    I find it busy and a little hard to read but I'm sure I will get used to it.

    Yea, i'm of the same opinion, it is very busy. waaaaaay too narrow on the actual forum stuff, I have huge white bars on either side of the actual content that are a massive waste of space. i have a 2560x1440 panel and it looks like this was designed for monitors from 10 years ago :\

    Then I guess the next logical question would be what was the intent of the site that you are matching? The content bar is narrow as heck. This format wastes a lot of space. I'll probably wear out a scroll wheel just typing this post. Seriously though.. this is "PC" perspective and most of us like to use the real estate today's wide screen monitors offer.

    I look forward to the updates and thanks for the hard work

    Not going through to read all the replies (hope not everyone has the same feedback) but I agree it's a bit hard to read. Small print. Feel like I'm reading another EULA (I never, ever do that - I come here for summaries...).

    Could there be an option to allow people to set their letter size? I'm not blind but I like words to be BIG and LONG.




    Otherwise I think it's cleaner and easier to navigate. Colors are a bit drab but it does look more "professional". I'm 31 but still feel like I'm almost 13. I like FUN crayon colors but I don't think that's where a respectable site like this wants to go towards...

    My 2 cents...


    Q9300 with 4 GB DDR2 1066 RAM
    UltraSharp 2408WFP (needs to be RMA'ed) on GeForce GTX 285 on two 18 amp 12V lines
    Audigy X-Fi Fatal1ty w/ Logitech Z-5500 & Sennheiser HD 280 Pro and HD 595
    plus the usual stuff in a poorly designed Antec P180 PW case

    Thnx - if I had a choice - I luv Tapatalk - mainly for the instant access to "Participated Threads"

    but I've been running both on my own vB4 forum without problems - so far
