I do like the new theme, but if we're going to use this can we put a cap on signature/image size?

We have the power of a runaway locomotive. 

How can I contribute? 

Is there a donate button?

Donation Button up shortly...

On width of forum area, I've decreased the whitespace on the sides in order to hopefully strike a compromise.  Do a Ctrl-F5 to do a full refresh of the site.

I absolutely love the new layout.  Looks crisp, modern, and is well organized, IMO.  We continue to have one of the nicest message boards in college sports.  Thanks Mac and mods.

Just voicing my displeasure since it has been prompted.  I at least appreciate that the site's upkeep isn't abandoned.

Donations are never expected, but I've put up a donation link next to the Social icons up top for those that have asked about it.

Same here.  Not a fan of the new layout, but I am a huge fan of Mac and his never ending efforts to keep this thing running smoothly.

This. I think the sidebars would be okay if they added value, but I don't think any of the content is anything I want to see, so they're just wasted space.

That's my main issue.  If we aren't going to have anything useful or interesting in the sidebars, we should just get rid of them.  They make it too cluttered.

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


No dice. Shoutbox appears with my old username, though. Tried on a different device and the shoutbox doesn't appear for TWS there either.


So much for NN.N being inclusive.
This signature is small because I'm not a jerk.

- Shrink the size of the header.  It's too big and pushes all of the info further down the page.  The old one was the right size in my opinion.
- Shrink or move the schedule feed and the Twitter feeds that are within the header.  Too busy.  If this is what has made the need for the header to be so big, then move it down the page below the threads or to the side.
- Move the Facebook/Twitter/Feed buttons to the side so they don't force the Shoutbox and the threads further down the page.
- I like the solid green bar that has been added next to quated segments, but would also still like to see quoted segments either shaded or italicized.
 
I'm not opposed to change, but the former site was great.
I hope you will support who we are, not who we are not. - Coach Norman Dale in Hoosiers

Only one thing needs to be changed.  Can't you put a nice photo of a beach full of bikini clad women on the front page?

Where the hell is the shoutbox?  I see where it says shoutbox, but there is no actual shoutbox.

hold control and hit f5. This will do a hard refresh and the shoutbox should show up.

Nothing.  I've been banned from shoutbox.  Who's going to pester, NLP?   >:D :'(

You haven't been banned, J Felt was/is having a similar issue. Mac will have to review.

Those that aren't seeing the shoutbox... did you ever play with the arrow button in the old skin that allowed you to hide it?  Wondering if you got caught in a state where it was hidden?

For those that don't wish to see the left pane, I have turned on the ability to remove it.  You'll now see + and - buttons on the bottom right of the shoutbox that can be used to remove the right, left, center panels.

Yea, the fact that it's happening across multiple computers tells me it's something with my account settings, but nothing I see would affect it.

Try a hard refresh now, I added you to the politics forum, just curious if that will flip it on. #shotinthedark

If the refresh doesn't work... sent you an email.to get your password.

The new skin should have had no effect on your ability to see the shoutbox.

Have you tried a browser that you have not  used with nnn before? Or perhaps flush the cache and cookies of an existing browser?
