Heeeeeeeeey... That looks snazzy! I REALLY like how you can quickly jump to anywhere else on Qz with the links at the top! :D

I like the new board, it looks friendly and is quite easy to read:-) Here are my suggestions

-On my browser the "light bulbs" are still missing
on the forum pages
-I think the signature could be in another style than the message, it's hard to tell them apart
-I think it's not necessary to repeat the topic title in each post in bold print. Instead the name of the author (right now the "number of posts" is more prominent than the name) could be in bold print and maybe the topic titles on each forum page
- I still think the usernames should all look the same and not use different colours



I do not want any google ads here.

Hi Guys,

If you want to have a look at a beta version of the new board, you can at:

www.queenzone.com/queenzone/forumnew/forum.aspx



Looks good! It's weird.. I've heard others mention the problems with staying logged in, but I've been logged in continuously since I registered. This new forum was the first time I've had to enter my password since December :)

Note: This wouldn't post in the new forum so I just copied it over to the old one, hence the unquoted quote :-P

I prefer the current board (in terms of design) so I will be sad to see it go... but I understand the new board should reflect the new design so it's necessary.

The menu overlaps in a nasty way and I can't enter the e-mail
+ password etc.

I think the new board is loosing in legibility : color is the same between two different posts, in the actual board we got an alternance of white and grey which is really helpfull.

I'm sorry my vote goes for the old board. I find that the new one is not as clear to read.

I, too, like the new board, but am unable to use it properly in Safari (same problem with pma and Opera). If you could fix that...that would be great.

Is there any particular reason to use Safari? I've never ever seen it.

Who gives a f*ck if it doesn't work in Safari ;-)

There are like 2 people in the whole world who use that ;-)

It's for the Mac, and it's far better than IE is (for the Mac).

I thought Mozilla is available for Mac too.

Safari is used by like 0.00001% of all my visitors so I don't give a damn about it either :-) Unfortunately, there are people who still use Netscape, the worst browser that has ever been invented so that has to be considered when doing wen design :-(

I used to be very secure about my websites being cross-browser. These days I just test it in Mozilla - I really can't be bothered for the 0.002 people around the world who use a non-IE/Mozilla browser.....

Great layout, I love blue!

The only wrong thing I see is that the text in posts is too close to the borders of the post table... If you know what I mean :)

Edit: Another wrong thing I found is that when you try to edit posts it leads you to the "Post New Topic" form. And also the "Save Password" thing doesn't work (I have cookies enabled) :)
