Please keep the feedback coming, it's really valuable.

Once again everyone ... :man12:

Thanks for everyone's input so far.

I'm working on an optional template that will show the avatars on the left. The caching on this thing is driving me mad, it's very difficult to test on. Give me a day or two after work to figure out how to tweak the template to do this.

At that point everyone will be able to select their own template, which will place avatars on the left (old school) or right (new school).

Keep on with the responses though.

in a gameday thread, it would get pretty ugly...because everyone is posting every second...while its nice to have such a feature, when a thread is busy is will become annoying.

The dark background...I like it to be honest, I dunno why people hate that. It makes the purple and gold pop a little bit more.

As always, when changes happen you always have yay and nay sayers...eventually everyone will get used to it. The goal is to make as many members as possible happy...but of course, one or another will be disappointed in some changes.

That is true. I thought about that. Maybe for busy threads like Gameday threads it could be disabled. Another possibility would be that it could be enabled or disabled by the user in the user control panel.

Can you somehow make it (or consider making it) so we can see the thread starters on the forums, again? Sometimes I like to know who created the thread before I click...or not click, in some cases. Thanks!

Other than that, and the aforementioned avatars on the right panel, I really like the layout.

EDIT: I really like how you can choose the page numbers! Also, I like how there is an quick link where I can view my posts (since I don't come often, I'd like to see who responded or how the thread went from the previous time I visited). Nice job admins!

You can, it's right under the thread titles. :man1:

If you guys haven't read this thread, it outlines (many of) our new features.

Okay. Here's my suggestions:

1. Left side avatars....like everyone says.
2. Maker the Clublakers.com logo LARGER. I suggest it cover the entire top space of larger but centered. Right now the logo is WAY TOO SMALL.
3. The purple background when you quote something is fine. BUT the purple background in a person's signature where a quote is used is way too tedious. I get lost in reading the post.....look at my post for example. Kinda confusing to figure out what my post is. I suggest if there's a quote in a person's signature, it should be white background not purple.

Just got through reading the overnight comments -- all good stuff. That "cl-left" isn't functional yet, but once I'm done with it (hopefully after work tonight), we'll likely set the default avatars to left, and allow members to choose right with "cl-right" in their personal preferences.

Behind that will be that IE bug that jumps to the bottom of the screen... strange.

CL and staff, I love the new forums. Running a couple of sites myself (completly un-Lakers related), I understand the need for the upgrade. Deleting bot registrations used to drive me crazy! Security with phpbb3 is much tighter and the back-management options are waaaaay cool!

Props for all the work you guys put in!

Same here...

Overall I think it looks great and love the new features. As others have mentioned, the one big miss at this point would be a 'quick reply' feature. On the personal preference side, I don't like that when I'm looking at the site index it highlights the thread title in yellow where my cursor is.

I like the avatar on the left. We read from left to right so it makes sense to have that info on the left so we see who is talking before we read their post. Also, whenever I hit post reply, it takes me to the bottom of the Post a reply page so I then have to scroll back up to the box to post in. Not a big deal, but kinda annoying.

Ha didn't even see your response until after I typed mine, but it does the same thing to me and it's getting more and more annoying the more it happens. I wonder if I could have fit the word more into the previous sentence...umm... more.

I like it as a whole, but can't stand the new CL logo up there. The forums look all new age and that logo looks circa 1980.
