Everybody is a blur.......who are you guys again?

Beyond that, not bad so far. The place really did need a change....

Just a suggestion you could make an arrow to make the forum fullscreen and hide the banner and side bar like a few forums do.

For me, there is not enough of a border on the left hand side. Some sort of filler would help. It kinda hurts my eyes reading writing that's on the edge of the screen. A lot of forums utilize this needed space for some member info next to their post. Not that this specifically is necessary, just one way to add a border. Otherwise I am liking the update.

Interesting.

A darker background is the biggest thing that is jumping out at me and maybe shrink the banner down a touch.

Sig Change is broken currently D:

Otherwise, everything looks good, just got a new 1440p 27" monitor, so everything fits much better. All scaling is proper.

oh wow, gonna take me awhile to get used to this.

one thing im already noticing that im not a fan of is how everything is pushed left. seems as though it takes more effort to read and type now since my focus needs to be in a completely different area of the screen.

hate change in general lol but dave im glad you're at least trying man. props.


ps, any plans to re-insert j-body pictures in the banner? seems naked without them..

Really needs lines or differentiated colors between posts just seems like I'm reading a word document. Also banner is quite big on a small ipad

I like the overall look, but I'd make the following changes:

1. as said, make the top bar and logo a little smaller (maybe have a preferences option for when you're signed in?)
I have a smaller monitor at work, and the top bar seems huge

2. move the forum nav bar back to the left and shrink it a bit. There's a lot of blank space in there, so it's just taking up page width.

other than that, I like it.

Biggest gripe is no real distinction between posters. I find it hard to follow

Is there anyway to center the forum and posts some. Being all the way to the left on two monitors is very annoying.

Even if it was over like 2 inches.

love the fact that I can upload from my cell or computer now, other than that it is a bit light colored and no definition between peoples posts



Modding my j since I found the org

Just found that I can't move PM's from trash to inbox and can't move/delete sent items. I can delete/move the inbox messages to trash though.

May be missing this easily but what happened to the search box and the top right of the page? Where is the search box now?

The latest change done since going live with this looks much better. Banner was too dark before, but much better now.

I didn't change anything there, you probably had the old stylesheet cached. That's why in the first post I said the first thing you should do is click refresh.

Also I just tried spell checker, it brought up another tab but nothing showed.

What browser? It should have opened a popup window.

Is there a possibility of a phone app

This design is responsive, so it works quite well on a mobile device. I took a lot of care to make sure it functioned well. There are still a few small issues, but I'm working on them.

Why not? I'll look into it.

EDIT: another bug... i no longer see the regional forums on the side member bar... i had North-east, Mid-east, and South-east...

This one is a bit of an oversight on my part. The regions selection has moved from your profile to the site subscriptions. What I forgot to do was populate the subscriptions table with the regions everyone had selected. For now you can just go to your control panel, click subscriptions, and re-check your regions under JBO.


I'll respond to the rest of the bugs in a bit...

I was on Chrome, but spell checker now working on my PC, but not in chrome from my ipad. It will pull up another tab, but nothing happens.

Site looks good takes some getting use to.

Problem:
Every time someone sends me a PM i get 3 of them. Some times all dated the same time or 1-2mins apart and the email notifications no longer work for PMs.

It kept giving me errors so I had to try it a few times. Guess it went through 3 times

Love the new look other than what has already been said about the huge banner across the top.

Also i found a glitch, for some of the forums that have adds the texted is smashed into 3 letter wide section. ( I also found the mustang add funny)

So i noticed that if i widen my browser screen it makes for room for the text. Suggestion would be to make the add just above the text or between posts.

Looks like the spell checker doesn't work on iPad. I'm going to be redesigning some of the popups, so that should hopefully be taken care of.

Huh?!?! Where is that screenshot from? That's not the JBO. I don't see where you're having this problem.

I'm going to be completely redesigning the PM compose screen, and that will fix the duplicate message problem. It should be up sometime in the next few days.

also, i liked how before it would say your username and that you were logged in. all i see to differentiate is the fact it says log out, indicating you are logged in.

any help for the member search coming? it still has that bug where if you try and search someone that joined before the timestamp it wont find them.

It still does. Its in the grey "breadcrumbs" bar at the top.

Yes I'm working on it. It won't be perfect but what I will be doing is auto-subscribing old members to JBO. With this new design, as I'm sure some of you have noticed, if you are not subscribed to a site, you are forced to do so when you log in. That will also help fix the problem.
