Potentially. I'll take a look into it when I get a chance.

Well, not sure if this is necromancy, but I think some layout improvements could be done.

I'm a member of RPGPost as well as here, and their forum layout is a bit cleaner. You have to do a lot of scrolling to get to where you need to go here.

That's a good suggestion and something we can work into this.

No thread necro here, this is by design still open so additions/suggestions can be added.

I'd say we're always open to suggestions for improvement. smile

You can minimise the forum sections by clicking the "-" button at the top right of each one.

Re: [Phoenix 2.0] Roughly outlined plan

Can you give examples of how you think the layout is cleaner? I was just poking around there a bit, looks to me just as neat (or messy, depending on your perspective) as here.

Actually at least here, the mass of material at the top is annoying to scroll by since it takes up a page to get to a thread or into the categories. An option to close it and open it on demand like the category buttons would be helpful.

That's a valid point, we might want to change that. Or get a dedicated front page.

Re: [Phoenix 2.0] Roughly outlined plan

The interface itself is pretty clean and loads good even on a mobile/android netbook. This does have this old-school forum look that I think might have a renaissance with the mobile era getting underway.

I see no other real gripes other than that. But yes, a front page would be excellent, or a way to hide the top page stuff.

Agreed. We should get all that stuff on a front page, and I think we should keep our mobile-friendly forum layout: I almost never use my laptop for internet any more, I'm always on my blackberry.
