The screenshot below is the Content Navigation bar. It's found throughout the site. It's a great way to filter topics by content type. The idea behind the Content Bar is to improve user experience. We wanted to make it easy for... Read More

    If you are interested in feedback: I do not find this new setup easy to use at all. The pages are cluttered and hard to navigate, features that I used regularly, such as the "new topics" feature don't seem to be there. I can't stand seeing the ads all over the place. Also, that sick yellow banner at the top, (it never seems to go very far away) is very offputting and makes me think the site is back in 1997. I'm sorry, but have to vote this as the worst iteration in all the years I have been following the site, including the years I lurked before joining.
    Well, I figured out how to like a post. I totally agree. I can't find the new topic button at all. This is too cluttered and difficult to navigate.

    OK, I found the last 24 hrs button. Very inconvenient. I used to be able to find that on any page, now I need to go back to the main page in order to find it. That is a bad design. The forum was more easily navigated before.

    up grades are always hard and no matter how hard we try there are kinks...I see all the ads as well.

    Joe will get them fixed...he always does!

    Moved Get Daily to the Account section on sidebar again.
    I believe I fixed the Platinum "no ads" issue. (Can someone please verify?)

    Good or bad - the feedback is appreciated.

    caliotter3,

    What do you mean by "Also, that sick yellow banner at the top, (it never seems to go very far away)"?

    Joe V, I like the simplified look of the new design Especially that you've moved the F,G+,twitter, etc. launch buttons over to the right side!! They used to get in the way when they were on the left side.

    I have never liked the use of that shade of yellow and have said so in the past. On one of the previous site designs we could choose between three (I believe) background colors. I liked that best because I could choose the color that was easiest on my eyesight. The latest pale background was somewhat acceptable but that bright yellow brings me right back to 1997. I don't like it and will continue to say so. There are many, many websites with pleasant color combinations to look at for ideas. It would not hurt to ask the membership for opinions.

    It's the gray heart under your name on the upper right. Took me a while to find it, and it wasn't until someone else mentioned it.
