Maybe the customising is a "nice to have", but being able to read it is pretty essential.

After-all, it is the content which is the reason for having the site in the first place!


We can only change what we can. I’ll have a look but not sure how hard that is and if it’ll mess other things up. Leave it with us.

Thanks - the font colour is the killer.

Ah - "predictability" is another web design tenet; I went looking in my Settings!

Unfortunately, the text is still grey in the 2.1 theme; maybe a "Prowlathinksitsreadable" theme!

(Though actually, I think the font could do with better kerning too...)

Unless you are a moderator. Moderators can also bump threads.

 

Obviously... :)

..actually we can't, the bump button isn't installed in the wanted forum.

Cool, it was worth a try 🙂

Minor gripe -- the orange-on-orange tag design isn't very legible.

Does anyone actually use the tags?

 

I know lots of people put them in, but does anyone actually click on them to find "related content"?

 

I used to a be a big tag user for some things until I discovered that adding tags to thread was one of the causes of the appearance of the right hand margin and the narrowing of the actual thread content width. Since then I have stopped including them in any threads I start.

We don’t make the software so can only use what they provide unfortunately. I don’t think there’s an option to customise the font or the way it displays. 

Is there no way to amend the stylesheet?

I got a 'great content' badge worth 100 points a little while ago. Could we have a bit about the award criteria please?

 

At this stage I'm actually not entirely certain what I got it for. Not complaining you understand... 9_9

I think they're like badges for Scouts, given randomly merely for attendance and/or lighting fires with woggles. It will probably evolve, with BC members squabbling over who has the most [insert puerile reason for squabbling over things here...], until The Admins get tired of all the complaints and return everyone to simple, modest 'BC Member'. That's enough, isn't it..? No..? Oh dear... :(

 

...

 

xD :P

Whilst I'm here, I've another complaint, and not the least...

 

Where have the 'power' and 'base' format options gone..? How to express 3ft2, or show binary numbers..? I can 'cheat', calling up the Windows Character set, and get 3 ft² (Alt 0178), but for 102 (2, in binary, base 2...) it's even more of a faff. Why have these formatting options been removed..?

 

(Progress, eh..? More like regression, I say..! Can't leave a Good Thing alone; has to be tinkered with until all the qualities that made it Splendid have been squeezed out, 'dumbed down', all in the sacrosanct name of 'progress'. Progress my eye..! Harrumph..! ¬¬ ) Potters off to put the spuds on, can't find the kitchen door and wanders outside muttering to ... nobody...
