I'd like to complain.

Give me a while until I've figured out what to complain about.

Title?

Time to make new custom buttons, fix the colour schemes, remove the unnecessary and unwieldy features that clog up the threads, etc. etc.

Should only take a week of full-time work. Chop chop.

Seriously, good job! I was afraid we'd get the Poly puke green and no other choices.

Actually, the old version looked about 1995. This new one looks about 1999, like ICQ before everyone stopped using it.

Petition for a web 2.0-savvy, well-designed forum system? Not this boxy bullshit. Even the usual sub-Mac OS looks will do.

The question is though - what would you want it to do? It's all very well saying these buzzwords, but what would you want in terms of specification. I don't want it going all "Apple Mac" on me...all presentation and no substance.

If I could chose? No separation between posts short of a single bar (uncoloured) containing a timestamp and quoting options. A sidebar, full height, with very little information presented in small fonts and a prominent avatar. No coloured boxes, no huge ugly icons, very little colour at all besides the avatar.

Something like Google Reader or IntenseDebate, but Forum-adapted. I'll do a mock-up to show about what I mean.

Okay, this is what I could imagine a basic forum could look like

Not necessarily CG, and I'm not a graphic designer, but along these lines:

The number of posts vs the number of replies still makes it confusing for the M hunt threads.

Can the management adjust the column 'replies' to 'posts' to include the opening post?

-The active posters should be visible on top of the forumpage

-the 'Forum Jump' button should be moved from far right to the left (switch with the 'posting rules'). Or even better: to above the quick reply field -> Put the "post reply' button on the right and the 'jump forum' button on the left.
Unnecessary scrolling should be avoided at any time

Yeah, that annoys me too, bring the forum jum button up..
The "previous thread/next thread" links I've never used, there is no reason to make them so accessible, sink them to the very bottom where I can pretend they don't exist

Btw, what's the difference in function to quoting a post and the 'quick reply to this message' button?
