Meta: What the heck just happened to the post format??

Submitted by M-Wolverine on August 12th, 2010 at 3:50 PM

It hurts my eyes! And is kinda hard to follow without the boxes and stuff. Maybe there's more dilithium in them.

Is this something breaking down, or the new format?

 

Edit: Sidebars are acting whacky too...something is up.

It looks sleek.  I was kind of confused at first too, but I do appreciate not having to page back through the MGoBoard.  The only thing I don't like is the avatar on the right--i.e. ITS NOT ON THE LEFT SIDE LIKE I'M USED TO!

It could definitely use some work, but I like where it is going. My guess is that a CSS file was pushed out too soon. Brian will probably have it fixed 2 minutes after he finds out he broke it.

That's my method for editing anything. Just do it while it's live, and let people deal with it being a little crazy for a while. Nothing like trial and error, as long as you're not working on something critical... (Whether this is critical or not is up for discussion.)

EDIT: I also like the fact that I don't have to load two extra pages to reply to someone. Any chance we'll see new posts by others showing up automatically as well? That would be fantastic.

With a little extra polish, all these improvements will be greatly appreciated.

I get a "quick find" in Firefox when I try to click on the comment section. Had to click "source" to type this.

then it tells me comment field is required - and wouldn't enter

I'm using Chrome/XP and I can't type in the main text box of the rich text editor, only the plain text editor.

How dare this free site change without my permission!

/looks pretty snazzy

It's not all that bad. I kinda like it, it looks sleeker, sexier in a way.

As long as MgoBlog doesn't become like Facebook and change the format every 5 min.... we aren't doomed then...

My two cents, which you are free to ignore: I don't like how the user info is on the right side of the post. Especially on a wide-screen monitor, it just seems really far away from the content of the post if I want to see who wrote it.

It looks cool, but looking cool does not necessarily mean it's more functional.
