responding to legit complaints here I revamped the MGoBoard page so that the titles were more prominent and given more real estate.
Hopefully people like this better. I'm working on other complaints, too.
Wa-hoo!! Much better in my epinion.
Brian for President!
He may waste time running our country and have less time for what is important- Winning UFR's.
I'm assuming he'll have time for both due to a high level of efficiency. UFR's will now be a part of the State of the Union address which will be moved to a weekly even in the fall.
I can see that. I would be more than happy to sit through thirteen state of the unions.
.... bad idea. If Brian is president and we're not allowed to talk politics on this site, I'd have some serious cognitive dissonance.
I'm just surprised the change came the first week of practice. I would imagine things are pretty busy from a work standpoint and site traffic is peaking like a meth'd-out trucker. Intentional? The firestorm of complaints he probably anticipated could have dragged on forever over summer.
What are you doing to fix the water bottle ban, huh? Answer me that one.
In all seriousness, it's late on a Friday night and you're still hard at work trying to make this website better. Dedication like that is why MGoBlog is hands down the best college football blog on the internet.
Much better, but I'm not sure how much of that isn't just my getting used to the new look.
That's so much better than what we had the past day, I still like the avatar on the left though. JME.
is their anyway to have read posts NOT bold and to maybe drop the type face one degree so that it fits better within the width?
Not bold is a good thing, but I think that if he unbolds it, it will fit better anyway, so he probably won't have to make the font smaller.
I've done this. Good suggestion.
You do understand Brian... you'll never win with this group. Thanks for working so hard on making the best blog on the world wide web even better. You are a patient and selfless person.
There are always going to be complaints about change, but about half of them I think are correct so I seek to fix those.
you're a good man Charlie Brown.
Thank you, Brian. This is a lot better!
There were usability issues with the other layout, whether you want to admit it or not cjm.
The new layout is better. Thanks, Brian.
Oh I completely agree. As a pastor I understand this (that you can't make everyone happy) entirely. I personally like the layout.
Brian, you might consider moving the Replies and views to the second line where the created by is so that the title can range the entire row. It might help condense the table a bit more.
quick question, on the points change. What are you're thoughts of making it subtract a point, only if you are down voting? Im just curious.
As usual mgoblog represents!
Leaders and best in all the blogging world! Keep up the good work.
Awesome. Thanks for making that adjustment, it's much better.
thanks for the update, thanks for the blog, thanks for your awesome awesomeness. This is the first blog I ever visited, and it's better than anything out there. "the Leader and the Best"
Looks very nice
Good job, boss
I don't know a thing about website design, but the way it looks now the lack of border around the various posts doesn't bother me. Everything looks cleaner.
Now there is a boss i would like to work for
Thanks for continuing to work on and improve the format. I was initially against this change, but it's starting to grow on me.
Looks good. Part of the adjustment to a new look is training your eye to scan it differently - until then it will seem awkward. Once you get used to it all the changes will be for the better
This is much, much better. The other format was just not very readable.
I still would like to see the text boxes and join dates returned, though - and I think the red "new" box on new posts would be more helpful if it were at the top of a post instead of the bottom.
MUCH better. And I like being able to see who started a topic.
All in all, it's definitely an improvement over the earlier revamp.
Rendering (probably CSS actually) issue:
