    I don't know of you were replying to me at all, becaus nothing you said was specific to my case (except the time)...
    I replied to what you said, if you want to moan then go ahead, but the admin are working on the bugs and issues, so have a bit of patience - bugs like the spoilers are not necessarily quick fixes.

    Oh, and in future - put responses outside of the post you're quoting so that people can respond to them

    I think I've shown why your response was inadequate. There's no need to continue this.

    I don't know how to do that. If you're that bothered you could delete your text, so the quote is made up of just what I said, surely?

    I think the greying out/watermark thing that was previously present in the who quoted me section was better than the new one. It was more distinguishable.

    I don't wish to have an argument, as this thread is to provide feedback on the new design and areas that need to be looked at, but you did make a sigh smiley as your only reply to my last post to you. Would you mind explaining why you did this (either here or via PM)?

    Back on topic, as Captain Jack explained, his post was not a complete listing of all things that are going to be looked at, but the areas which are being treated as a priority. Do you have any other things that you feel need to be looked at/changed as a priority?

    The hyperlink to the source of the original post is placed with the username. In Captain Jack's latest update, he says this is being immediately being worked on -

    The link at the top of quotes – where it says “Original post by ...” has been swapped. We are going to swap it back so the link is on ‘Original post’. This is being fixed right now.

    Not really, you just suggested that you shouldn't have to be patient and then claimed that me replying to things you said had no relevance to what you said: which is of course wrong.

    You type outside of the tags that say quote - and not really: a) posts quoted in the post you quoted don't show up, and B) I have no powers in this section.

    The text around the site like this is stuff which is manually being updated. All the capital letters on second/third words etc will gradually be removed. I don't think there have been any changes with these bits of text in the recent updates, but there should hopefully be some soon.

    In fact, I've taken a few minutes to go edit 10 or so phrases to sort out the capitalisation...
    :cool: brilliant

    I've spent the afternoon editing my work to get rid of random Capitals too. I wish I could stop myself from capitalising Important words in the first Place, would save me tonnes of time.

    When you quote someone, then any quotes already in the post are removed. So if you add your response inside the quote, your response won't be there when someone replies, and they will have to manually copy it in, which can be annoying if you have to do it often.

    Just reply like you did in the post I am quoting - write your comments after the quote. If you want to break the quote into different parts, add a [/quote] tag after a section, and then a [quote] at the start of the next section, like this:

    [QUOTE=tooambitious;42371186]I think I've shown why your response was inadequate. There's no need to continue this.[/quote]

    This is my reply to this section.

    [quote]I don't know how to do that. If you're that bothered you could delete your text, so the quote is made up of just what I said, surely?[/QUOTE]

    Now I reply to this.

    Which looks like:

    Bold text stands out - but still presents the problems I have stated. It wasn't not being able to read your reply that made Stiffy ask you not to reply within the quote marks.

    You're not the only one! :rolleyes:

    If you look back a few pages where I posted, you'd see that I was completely against the new TSR designs and was adamant that it should be changed back. But now, I've actually been forced to adapt and put up with it - I've actually been subconsciously forced to grow to tolerate it and now I cannot muster up the drive and fire to demand the reversal of the design changes!

    Damn you TSR; damn youuuu! :fuhrer:

    Wow. This is really ugly.

    Even I think that, and my own website is bright orange.

    The orange is too bright compared to everything else, the grey post headers are kinda boring but I'll get used to them, the blob characters are cute but they're not really used widely enough to become an integral part of the design (and should totally become the basis for a new emoticon set!), and the star on the "Watched threads" box looks like it was drawn by a child with a large felt-tip pen - a sharper and more symmetrical icon would look less childish.

    I like that solid colours are being used as the basis of the design, and the large icons are nice and touch-friendly, but the design overall just doesn't quite gel. It's a nice base, but it doesn't all work together as-is.

    At least I, for one, don't mind the font - but Arial is so generic that it's boring

    Oh, and the rep gems are great and way better than the old ones, but the rep buttons at the bottom of posts are terrible because they're too wide and there's not enough distinction between repped and unrepped posts.

    While we're on the subject of the rep gems, the help text that pops up when you hover over the question mark is ungrammatical:
    "The Reputation gems seen here indicate how well reputed the user is, red gem indicate negative reputation and green indicates a good rep."
    It should probably read "The reputation gems seen here indicate how well reputed the user is; red gems indicate negative reputation and green gems indicate good rep." But I'm not sure about the "how well reputed the user is" part...
    Your website look more professional than this! :rofl:

    I was like that a few days ago as well, until I was subconsciously made to tolerate it and was distracted by dozens of quotes to reply to and threads to make! Bread and circuses, man, bread and circuses! :fuhrer:

    Yeah, that was my attempt to jump on the bright, solid colour bandwagon Microsoft started. It didn't go great, and I need to redesign that at some point.

    I've done better, I promise!

    Another problem that I've noticed since the redesign: I'm using TSR on an iPad (not using the iPad app, just a browser) and those little buttons that I could previously press on to view a 'spoiler' in someone's post no longer do anything when I try to press on them, they are now just like flat graphics. Maybe it would be different if I used the iPad app? But it does seem odd that those buttons worked perfectly fine on the iPad with the old design, but not with the new one.
