Hey Guys,


Mac has released a new layout. We'll use this to listen to your feedback, thoughts, etc.


Fire away.

the template squeezes the threads so it makes the page really long.

Yes... it's borderline unreadable at work (internet is in a vertical side monitor)

Very hard to read on an iPhone. The original format was much better. This on is almost unusable.

I preferred being able to strip things down to the bare minimum, no sidebar photos, etc.

Yeah this is pretty awful.  The threads are smushed up to the point that reading them is almost unbearable.

I have to agree with the others...  the format makes the thread 'column' nearly impossible to read.

Hold on guys, nothing released... The front page is being played with.  If your complaints are about the front page, please hold comments.  I'm not sure anyone is looking at the new skin except 2K and I.


Please be patient.

Thanks Mac, when the other posters told me there was an issue, I thought it might be from the new skin being out and having a bug.

No problem... I screwed up the column panels and that created the problem in the old skin.  I think I may flip the switch on the new look tonight or first thing in the morning.

I'm loving it now. Nice work.

I don't like it.  Simplicity is the best practice for a forum.

The home page list of topics is too long and narrow on the iPhone. I liked the last layout of topics with the different tabs.

The current topic headers, the black against the green is very hard to read. White text may be easier.

Looks good, just needs tweaking imo

Ok, the switch to the new look is official... Note, there is a mobile theme that I'm sure a lot of you have seen already.  At the bottom of the non-mobile there is a very small link "Mobile Site" that you can click to switch over.  Likewise on the mobile skin is a way at the bottom to go back to the "desktop" site.

Upper left are scores and upper right is the twitter feed for #stateofcharlotte.  I think everything else is pretty stratight forward.  A good bit of work went into this one and we've been playing with it for a while in the background.  I hope it's to everyone's liking.

It looks really nice overall. Really appreciate all the work you guys do to put up and maintain this board, it's clearly one of the nicest and easiest to navigate of college message boards.

I really enjoyed the tabs at the top of the page for the last version, but it's not a big deal to lose them.

The threads are still a touch squeezed on my laptop, but they are readable to me. Anyway to widen the threads in settings, maybe allow the left column to be hidden?

Not getting the shoutbox window on the main page. Might be limited to just me and my computer, but who knows. Maybe someone has an idea.

Try ctrl-f5 and see what that does for you.  That is pretty strange.

Hmmm, not an issue for me but I'm used to wide screens, but I can see what you mean. I'll expand the lower window in a bit and reduce the white space on the sides.
