    Did the Forums just get funky?

    Anybody else now seeing the menu bars at the left hand side of their screen? It's amazing the difference an hour makes - although I'm not liking the harder to ignore adverts.

    :scratch:

    yes, they did. Forum changed while I was writing a post in my trade thread.

    First opinion, I hate it, can't look the forums as I used to :grin:

    I have to agree with you, although hopefully we'll get used to the change! {explores control panel} Also, doesn't my subscription mean I shouldn't be seeing these large adverts?

    This new change makes my eyes feel like they're coated in sand. That, and a strange claustrophobic feeling from it squishing the forum over into smaller text boxes.

    Re: Did the Forums just get funky?

    you see ads until you pony up for silver membership. i just measured and on my crappy res monitor the bar at the side coupled with the info for each post (user name, 'tar, etc) get me down to near half a screen of horizontal viewing.

    i also get the claustrophobic feeling, MYK.

    edit: ugh, i dont really like the different skins, but if it gets rid of that bar i'll use it... until it gets updated too.

    Re: Did the Forums just get funky?

    So, should I be seeing adverts or not? Not quite sure what the Pal bonus of no banner ads includes and excludes... :undecided:

    They need to stop doing stuff. That "Quick Nav" is redundant, there are already toolbars/drop down menus for the exact same things. And the ad on the side is just horrid. Everything is way too cramped now.
    As PALs we shouldn't...

    Re: Did the Forums just get funky?

    It's always the case with changes :wink3:

    What I don't like (at least so far) is that there's less room for posts. Perhaps we'll get used to it or it's temporary, like double link to stratedy forums in the quick nav bar :laugh:

    Change can be good, but so far the current ones are not needed.

    Change the Quick Nav to a drop down at the top of the forum, and remove it from the side of the page.

    It looks empty once you scroll below the quick nav, I'd rather have it in a drop-down menu or on the other side.

    Yay galleries are back :laugh:

    Re: Did the Forums just get funky?

    It really do look horrible. The posts look so cramped, and that ad is just... =(

    Besides it does say Pals gets ad free forum >_>

    Change it to drop down menu at the... or something. Just anything to not take up the space on the sides.

    Re: Did the Forums just get funky?

    I'm honestly surprised there's not a test server/environment they can experiment on..
