    I kind of agree. All you guys with 15 lines of signature make it a little difficult to read.

    I'll see if I can highlight it somehow. :think:

    So do you not like it, Ridemonkey??? I noticed the thread that says Skookum likes it is closed. ;)

    *I know we just don't want two threads, but there is no drama in just saying that.

    Hey man change is fine but this format is confusing.

    What's the problem with the old format?

    What's confusing about it?

    Click the edit button on your post, and you'll see why there's a new format. ;)

    that's pretty neat. but it's still hard to differentiate text from ephemera.

    :stupid:

    Old format was easy to scan quickly and pick up someones post. Now it takes a little more focus to read an actual post instead of signatures etc. Makes things difficult seeing as though 80% of my RM time is performed while in meetings or while on the phone.

    I'm going to have to agree..... I don't like the new format either. Its way easier to navigate when all of the personal information is on the side, and the actual posts are seperated from them vertically not horizontally.

    This change seems to make the forum arder to look at. the old style was more aesthetically pleasing. The text of each message appeared sequentially, without having to look at eveyone's stupid avatar & sig in between.
    Pretty weak, IMHO.
    In fact, if I had my druthers, there would be an option to pare everything down, so all you really saw were user names, and text of messages. No sigs, no avatars. Just as an optional way of viewing.

    Please bring back the old style.

    It is a little better with signatures turned off.

    Maybe I'll do a stripped down version and let users select whichever they prefer. Don't expect it tomorrow though.

    Go to userCP and turn them off. I've had signatures turned off since I joined the :monkey: .


    I wish somebody could come up with the code to keep the large pics from messing up all the posts on a page (like this page).
