the new look

Recommended Posts

well, besides the interface that is the typical cheap looking interface, now I am facing a page mostly white with lots of very annoying simbols and icons.

 

The only similarity with the old look is the black header.

Also, the signatures have disappeared but that is more of a detail. I really find this look cheap and not stylish while the previous was much more special. The only thing that has bee kept is the black band header above, all the rest, including more stylish lettertypes,  is gone and looks terribly different and not pleasant, this is from where I sit. One of the things which attracted me of this forum was the graphic form, the new one is, sorry to say, cheap and uninteresting.

another thing.

 

On the old version there was a way to see the latest threads  and I always looked at that, now this seems to have disappeared (or I haven’t found it yet) and it is quite annoying to have lost this feature which I favor everywhere I participate.

Sorry for that - had some urgent projects thus I wasn't able to finish some tasks.

Now the start page has some modules with current topics, posts and gallery images.

More improvements to come!

cheers and thanks.

 

On my end everything still looks pretty much the same but I trust the updates.

 

Really I liked almost everything of the previous version including the limited choice of emoticons.

Now we have lots of stuff but it looks so much more ordinary if this would look more similar to the blog part of the forum I’d be way happier

Jo Andi. First, thank you for your work. A person working on something that others will enjoy is always to thank for what he does.

I haven't checked the whole new website, not much time. One thing I'd like to say, in my strictly personal opinion: the graphics of the site is not consistent with the top and the rest. I would have changed the top choosing a light one to match the rest better or, vice versa, a dark page matching the dark top.

But, having said this, everybody has his own tastes.

Thank you again and grüßi

indeed, alongside with the cheaper and more spartan look and the loss of the “ recent posts “ column (which was a great asset since it gave you a view of the latest running topics) we lost that too. In exchange we got all the emoticons (or emoji as they now call them) in the world that I seriously doubt that we ever felt the need to have.

 

I am staring at a page which is mostly white and wonder where the stylish forum that I joined has gone. Makes me feel a void.  Also I am not (yet?) aware of how to add a signature , as far as I can tell, at present, this feature is either hidden somewhere that I couldn’t find or has gone altogether.

I appreciate the effort. That being said, I definitrly prefer the old layout. It was compact, no nonsense, straight to the point. The new one requires more scrolling to find points of one's interest, and color solution, which would be appropriate for children's site, seems out of whack here. Is it possible to return to the old style? It would be terrific!

I am afraid that the baby was thrown out with the bathwater.

 

The forum update was not only an aesthetic change but a complete migration to a different software which, very possibly, doesn’t offer that stylish look at all!

 

Whatever it will be, the tweaks that can be brought about will leave lots to be desired in comparison to the much sleeker look the forum had before.

Not only but now there is a positive discrepancy between forum and Fujirumors site/blog

I don’t know if and when you are coming back to this, but the forum still looks as butt-ugly as it did when it re-appeard in its new unflattering version.

 I hope that you are going to follow up on the promise of improvements.

 

Using this interface feels positively uncomfortable. It is not impossible to use, of course. I’ve posted quite a bit since the “ new look” came to pass, but it really bothers my sense of beauty to  use a mostly white page in this day and age  and more importantly for folks ( photographers) whom value aesthetics (don’t we?).
