New MDC format: Like it? Dislike it?

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 

Oops!  I also found out I can't edit the thread title!! 

 

I MEANT to say:  New MDC format....

 

The general set-up looks pretty much the same.

 

Personally, I don't like the new colour for the background and thread titles.  The light blue is harder on my eyes (they're not great to begin with!).

 

If anyone knows of a way to change the background and font colour, let me know!!

Getting used to it.  The posts are easier to read, for me anyhow, but the light blue color?  We'll see.  The titles can be hard to read due to the light color.

 

I like that the forums and the main Mothering content have been integrated better.  I still read those articles (still missing the magazine!), and found myself not doing it as much on the old format when it was waaaay over there!

I think it's mostly fine, but I'm finding it a lot harder to differentiate between which threads I've posted in and which I haven't. Is it me, or is there only a very slight color variation between the two?

lima i can tell the colour difference when there are no new posts. i cant tell ANY colour difference when there is a green arrow to show new postings on a thread i have posted on, vs the thread i have not posted on.

I like it fine.  But I'm just noticing that on the 'list of recent activities' I can't jump to my last post in a thread. 

 

Is the only way to find my 'list of recent activities' by way of my name in the upper right corner?

I think you can if you go in and edit your first post.  Once you're in, above the text box there's a 'Edit Thread' option.

I like the older version better, mostly for the background color option. My background is white. I'd like to learn how to change it.

Thanks!!  Found it, but "Edit Thread" is in such really tiny letters, I hadn't even noticed it!  Now I know!

The white is hard on the eyes!

I like the old version better. I think the font is often too big in this new format. Like, too big in places and not big enough in others. I'm not a fan of the blocky font. 

 

I know a lot of members had a problem with the change a few years ago, but I actually liked that change. I wish we could choose skins, but I suppose that will come one day.

 

I was expecting to see a change in the vax forum with this new switch, but I guess that will be later.

I think I like it. Definitely takes some getting used to...

 

Didn't we once have the ability to "change skins?" Or was that a different forum I was on, like 2-3 years ago?

Ages ago you could change skins here.  There was MDC tan, and a purple theme and a blue theme, etc.  I think.

Yes! I loved the purple skin. I think that was back when MDC used vBulletin though.

I'm having trouble with the light blue text, too. It's significantly harder for me to read.

Please please forgive me for asking - if it offends you - 

 

for those of you having trouble with the light blue - do you have colour blindness? i am curious and really want to know.

 

coz i asked dd's bf who is colour blind if he could read the light blue titles and he had trouble. dd and i didnt.

i like it better than the old version, it seems easier to read for me.  But then, ive always had a penchant for pastels.

For some reason, it seems like there is not quite enough contrast, even though when I look at it hard, it seems like there should be enough.  Maybe it's these eyes getting old, but the blue is hard.

 

Also, I can barely read the #of new posts on each thread.  

 

I'm not disliking the general format, but the old version seemed so much crisper.  I'm having trouble with the pastels.

I dislike the pastels, too.
