Forum Updates - BETA Testers Needed

Recommended Posts

Craig

I've been busy making some changes to the forum in preparation for an upgrade. This will significantly improve the look, feel and usability of the software, bringing it up to date with some of the more recent advancements in web technology. This is pretty cutting edge stuff so I'm quite excited to introduce it.

I'm looking for some BETA testers to give me feedback on the new design.

Please leave all feedback in this thread so I can make changes as appropriate.

You don't need to be technical to help with this exercise and you can even just 'take a peak' if curiosity gets the better of you.

http://beta.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk

Thanks in advance for all help and feedback.

(April fools)

Well following the link opened up a new window in the tippytak program on my iphone and it looked a bit different on the home screen with section heads having a different font and some data in orange to show many many threads were contained within. I could sign in, and quote and edit my old threads, so it all seems to work on first glance. I wasn't aware it was different at all to use, but i suspect that is what you have been working hard to achieve.

So yes, all looks good from my point of view.

Thanks for putting in the hard work behind the scenes.

Looks very different on the PC compared to that program on the phone. The links don't work on the PC but they did on the phone...


 


I'm not keen on the red, it looks a too psychedelic; astronomers on acid!


 


But I still like the look of the font and the use of orange coloured text to show who was the last author (or original author), that is nice.

Craig,


 


Its very busy, and :-


 


1. Do not like the red chunks in the background.


2. eyes immediateley drawn to the orange numbers, they really stand out.


3. How about changing the topics to orange lettering and reverting back to white for the numbers.


4. Status updates in your face with orange !


5. The stats bar near the bottom of the screen, total posts etc is overwhelmed.


 


You've been burning the midnight oil again!
