As many of you have now figured out, we have a new website design. We want to make sure that any and all issues (and reasonable requests) are dealt with. If you have suggestions on how to improve the forums or the design, here is your chance to get them done.

All we ask is you be very specific in your request. If there is something you do not like, offer a suggestion or alternative. Screenshots also go a log way. Also, always state your operating system and browser version you are using. That is very important.

So with that, tell us how we can improve things for you. ;)
Learn the essentials with these quick tips for Responsive Site Designer, Responsive Email Designer, Foundation Framer, and the new Bootstrap Builder. You'll be making awesome, code-free responsive websites and newsletters like a boss.

Customizable theme colors. Maybe in profile settings have the ability to select specific colors for background and text, or select a color pallet that will apply to web site and/or forum.
Graphics for the web, email, blogs and more!

1. Apply the condensing of white space to the forum list and anywhere else that has that ton of white space (left menu too if possible, but not totally necessary since it travels with us now *does happy dance for that*. Basically do the same thing with the condensing of white space that you so nicely did to the New Posts list. All the rest I'm liking it now much better thanks for all the extra updates to help accommodate us :)

2. Smilies don't seem to be working in posts, they are working in signatures though lol.

Especially for the forums. The overly amount of white space and brightness hurts my eyes.

Oh, I see, That's great news!
I would also do a happy dance if the icon in front of each forum could have a different colour (red, like it used to be) if there are new posts.
Ha en riktig god dag!

When you use the "show new posts" under the forum tools the text in the list is very small and hard to read on a mobile.

Yup looks to be a broader menu.;)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

I find it irritating to see my picture with the Forum Tools beneath it hanging around as I scroll through a thread's posts. But guess what? Since the Forum is a responsive design, all I need do is make the viewport too skinny to allow my face to fit on the left side of the page. Hurray, no more me!
