Forum is looking great overall! biggrin.gif

These are just a few little suggestions to think about:

1. This is a good skin for this board, but I think it would be nice if it was fixed-width. Something like 850 px. Reason being is that it probably looks okay on 1440x900 but on monitors like mine which have a huge res it fills the page (although some people like this.)

2. Flood control is 30 seconds for members. Maybe tone it down to 5 or 10 in the groups setting?

3. The basic profile look is fine, but the portal-style is nicer looking and might be worth enabling since it's fully compatible with this skin.

Example here: http://img689.imageshack.us/i/profilesw.png/

Up to you though.

Thanks!

I will check everything out tonight. I have a 1280x800 and a 1920x1200 laptop monitor and I'll look at at closely. But we definitely want it at 100% of the screen (browser window).

Flood control will be done immediately.

Thanks for the tips, and most importantly, the sponsorship. We're not done by any means with the Aesthetics, but got it good enough or opening the forum, i.e. it's temporary smile.gif

Hello
Just passing through in praise.

my own monitor resolution is 1400 x 900 and yes, it does look great. One of the calmest and smartest looking forums I have seen, very easy to read smile.gif

Glad to hear....easy on the eyes, and "calm, or not-busy" is what we were going after....smile.gif

Yeah a good idea to centre it, my neck gets stiff reading across a 23" screen at 2048x1152

Did you know that you can actually resize the browser window? Really! wink.gif

That's called a "portal view", some like it, some don't....I would just resize the browser...but I know what you mean; that you don't like resizing the browser window for everything, etc.

Minor typo: when you edit a post, it says "Thanks, The post has been edited". This should be "Thanks, the post has been edited."
