:omg: I am at a loss for words to express my profound gratitude to Scott who, out of the kindness of his heart, spent considerable time working on improving the look of the Message Board. Needless to say it is a daunting task to edit the code that makes this baby look and function the way that it does, and he accomplished in one weekend what would have taken me the rest of the year to figure out if I had the courage to even attempt it.

¡Muchísimas gracias, mi muy estimado y querido Scott!:worthy:

Great Scott!

He says that the presentation is also better on your mobile devices, so those of you who text on the run should appreciate the improvements he's made.

I feel like celebrating! :smoking:

Looks good to me. I thought something happened to my computer and I was ready to post I liked it and the rest of you should have it. Now I can just say, "Thanks Scott".

Great Scott!

Terrific work Scott... you have the computer tech's eye for producing something pleasing for the crowds!!!B-)

I'm glad the change seems to have been well received. If anyone has any suggestions on what else we could do to make the forum even better, please share them. I'm more of a code monkey than a designer, so I'm not really good at coming up with colour schemes and layouts and things, but if anyone has any ideas and there is consensus that they'd be nice to have, I'm pretty good at modifying the backend programming to try and implement those ideas.

Great Scott!

You are a Canadian Scott. What you have done is great. Please no tinkering.

Great Scott!

I think the job is so good, I would not change a thing.

Has anyone else noticed that the visited links seem to be staying in their "read" color longer intead of changing back to blue after a few days? Scott has really been working overtime to polish up this revitalized Message Board. I love playing with it even when nothing's happening!
:woohoo:

Anyone notice?

I have had some change back to non read color in a couple of days. A friend of mine says (I think this is right) that his never change to read ever. If that is not right Mike............speak up and I will correct this.

Anyone notice?

The read message feature is dependent on cookies. If the links don't change colour for him, he likely has a cookie problem.

The latest change will help remember messages read in one-at-a-time mode without using cookies, but messages read in thread mode are still fully dependent on cookies to be remembered.

Anyone notice?

by LadyM in Zihua, Wednesday, April 13, 2011, 22:25 (3882 days ago) @ Scott

He did mention to me that he had deleted lots of cookies, so hopefully he read this and will know how to handle the problem. Thanks.
