Hmm...I suspect the "new posts since your last visit" icon isn't working for me. I'll keep an eye on it. Is it showing up for everyone else?

Works for me. "Thanks Ernie! Everything is cool!" :)

BTW, I like the new look. Very snazzy!

False alarm, I guess. Ignore me.

So is there some way to make those little post-it notes clickable?  They look like buttons, so when I see a forum with a new topic, I go and click on the post-it note.  And NOTHING HAPPENS!!

agh!!

Oh well, this board rules.  Now if you can only get rid of the Emoticon chart to the left, you will be my hero.

I am now your hero. Also - everybody may want to go to their profile and turn HTML on. I see Zak's sig's not working, and I suspect that's why.

I've now also added a "Forge" theme to bring back that ol' brown and red we like so much. I probably need to work on it a bit more.

If the forum looks the same to you as always, go to your profile and change your theme.

Looks cool, but please check the CSS(?) you used (or other font feature) because you locked the font size and my text size-largest setting is showing me dots. I hate small symbols and will not read if  have to hug the monitor.

Please,

Hey, looks awesome! Maybe I'll hold off on that PHP/JSP flamewar I was thinking about starting ...

Again, as I said earlier - I have no problems adjusting the font size in Mozilla. I'm not a CSS junkie, though, so I might be missing something. What browser are you using, and would you know how to make it where the font is adjustable? (If so, I'll e-mail you the CSS file.)

The best solution from my persepective would be a "font size" option within the user profile, since it's bizarre and annoying to have adjusted the font size for one site, only to get blasted by a giant cartoony-sized font when you go to eBay or some other site with a normal-sized default font.

The only really critical font size for this would the one for the text of the postings themselves.

Maybe someday. Not this weekend, though.

I increased most the font sizes a bit in order to make it easier on the sight-impaired. I'll make a separate "big" theme later.

Sorry for the tone, Clinton, I've been under a more stress than is healthy for the last two weeks, and it just leaked out here.

[edited]
Would you please remove the auto-set font sizes from the CSS file?

I'm using IE and I cannot change the font size at all.  My screen size is 1024x768, with Large fonts.

I'm burning my eyes out trying to read the tiny font currently available.  I'd really appreciate it if you could fix this to allow the alteration of font sizes on the pages, instead of locking them to one size.

Thanks!

I'm using IE, not Mozilla (sorry, won't touch it) and I cannot change the font size at all.

I don't feel like burning my eyes out trying to read these blasted tiny fonts...always ALWAYS let the viewer choose their own font size, NEVER force a particular one on them.


Just to let everyone know, this is not the way to make a request. I've already explained that I'm not a knowledgable person on CSS and I am working my hardest on it right now.

All this sort of screaming does is make me go, "Fuck it, I'll go watch FOTR again today and leave this for later."

I said above that I'd increased the font sizes a bit. A simple note telling me that wasn't enough would have sufficed.

And to note, I just looked at the page on IE, with the font size set to "smaller." It was actually bigger than in Mozilla.
