Hi -- There's something mildly unsettling about the new format: If you look at a list of topics, as on the initial screen, the rows of text don't line up evenly on the left. Every other row is slightly indented.

I assume it looks this way because the underlying code (which you can see if you right-click on the screen & then do Inspect) goes back and forth between "table_row" and "alternate_table_row" for no apparent reason. 

Maybe the programmer thought this makes the screen easier to read. But the effect is to make it look disorganized and therefore harder to read. It would be easy to change and make the code simpler too.

It looks like the margin codes are set differently for the gray blocks vs. the white blocks. They ought to have the same margin value.

I guess I don't understand how this could possibly be a big deal, but if it matters to you, sure.

Hi Debbie -- The phrase I used above was "mildly unsettling". I wouldn't call it a big deal, but it does make the forum look disorganized and amatuerish.

Combined with the green, it might also cause seasickness in sensitive visitors. [smile]

It's a little sad to see the blueboard go green.

And perhaps those alignments would help, there is a (slightly) untidy look to the "Categories" page.
