I didn't insult you, I said if you can't play nice then don't play at all.

You're the most negative person on this forum, heck you're the most negative person I know, and all I ever see you do is complaining or talking down to people over their personal tastes trying to tell them the only correct way to do something is they way you'd do it and they're stupid for not doing it your way.  I personally am fed up with spending all my free time doing things for people only to have you come in and try and tear it down, and who are you to do that?  What makes you better then everyone else?  What gives you the right to bitch and moan about a FREE site and how people who spend their time with no compensation do things?  If you want to pay me lots of money do be the designer of this site then I'll consider listing to your demeaning talk but until then shut up and if you can't go away.

You said I was petty and only concerned about nit-picking. That is an insult, or two.

Whatever. I don't come here for you, and I don't know anyone who does come here for you. But you may well drive me away. And if no one here wants me around, then I may very well go.

EDIT: If I go to a website and what shows up on my screen looks like this, there is no way you can say that is good design and good implementation.

I like TWG because it is where my friends from The Leading Edge hang out. You didn't go to The Leading Edge, so clearly we have different tastes in friends.

All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

How do I get Fell Points? 
For those of us who aren't admins, is there a way we can nominate a thread or something a TWGer has done for consideration?

Dono, never came up in our discussions,  I do know that we thought it was best to limit giving FP via forum posts to special circumstances. Until I comment I think I'll wait to here what Fell says since FP are more or less his juries diction.

Oh heaven forbid if that actually bothers you that you couldn't spend 2 seconds decreasing the width of your browser window so you don't have that blank space, you know like how most Mac users use safari since most websites out there (including apple's) don't extend to fill out such a high resolution.  Heck if this forum extended to that resolution you'd be complaining that we're wasting space height wise.  And here I am actually worried that I over reacted to your point but after seeing that screenshot I know I was right to say everything I did.

hehe, that statement is funny.  Glad we could end this argument with a good laugh.

Sprig, he doesn't like the site design. That's fine, lay off him.

I like the new site design.  I have no problem using it.  I am pleased.

My one suggestions would be, perhaps to center the entire thing.  I don't know the code used so I don't know how hard it would be to make the top bar fixed width and centered, while the posts section is at 100% width, but I might, slightly, prefer that.

Oh, and also, I am having minor login troubles, reference: the call for articles thread.

Ha ha...  It's nice to see that while some things change, much remains the same.

Also, because I forgot to mention it in my last post: many many thanks to Spriggy for getting this all coded and put together and live. Width issues aside, I think we can all agree that the new forum has a lot of really great features we never had before; at the very least, it's a lot easier to maintain from the back end. I especially like the old timey theme that he and 42 developed. Well done all around.

Humm...Shouldn't be to hard to do.  I'll look into it.

Oh, that's much better. I was having a hard time figuring out whether it had really changed with the just darker/lighter combo.

The store button isn't working for me. I don't know what the deal is, but whenever I click on it it just pops up a new window with the forum.

I'm really liking the new layout. Especially those spiffy NEW! buttons.
