I'm getting used to it. The recent discussion bar is nice and the site is really quick.
I think it could do with less statistics under a poster's avatar though. Who needs statistics on mentioned, tagged and quoted? Those are in my opinion of very little value and just clutter the space below the avatar but that's just personal taste I guess.
BTW the mark all forums read function doesn't work yet.
Great! Looks like the CBR300R site I'm more used to. I found the font too small on the old site (prob just my old(ish) eyes!) and I agree too many statistics
- really who cares about that stuff, and if you do then go to their profile page and look it up there.
Recent discussions is good, i use this feature on the 300 site all the time. Overall I really like it.
Off topic: Ruby red and silver? - boring as bat $hit, what were they thinking...
We can remove some of those stats, pretty easy quick fix.
Working on the Mark all Forums read thing now.
I agree on getting rid of the Mentioned, Tagged, & Quoted
stats... those don't seem all that useful.
All of the other original user stats should be retained on the forum pages under the username as they have been there from the beginning of the site, and they do provide an "at a glance" indicator of how active users are on the site relative to their join date, as well as their reputation for useful posts (via the "Thanked" feature). As a Moderator I find these stats useful, and at the same time I don't have the time (or desire) to go to an individual user profile page just to see these numbers.
If only we could get all
members to enter their Location, as that is useful to everyone on the site.
Somewhat related, I don't think we really need the "Like" button, as it seems pretty redundant to the "Thanks" button. And since we've had the "Thanks" feature going back to mid 2012, it obviously should remain for this site (I know the CBR300forum.com site only has the "Like" feature, but that is a newer website and has used the "Like" feature since day one).
