Time for a look refresh ?

Let us know what we can do to improve the forum.

Here are some suggestions to address the confusion with PMs and Pictures.
We could add a bubble next to the other icons on the right * ! " $ in addition to the one on the left after contact.
You could change "Full Editor & Preview" to "Full Editor", "Preview" and "Add Files" buttons,
Full Editor and Preview could go to the same page, and "Add Files" would do what Attachments/Add Files does in the Full Editor.

Very good (and small!) suggestions: Yes, folk (including myself at first!) have had difficulty finding how to PM-reply to a posting, and moving the bubble to the right with the other icons would help.

I've voted NO : the site is clear and easy to use. No need to change everything.

It's all good suggestions folks, keep them coming.

It's been a while since we've had a constructive discussion and I like that.

I will be looking into trying to fix these little issues as time permits. I've got to agree on the PM thing, it has been bothering me for a while but couldn't find the motivation...

Enjoy your Pinside then! I have dabbled there, but it is like 100x the "drama" that some folk complain about on MAACA, and from what I see the two things that I come to MAACA for (technical discussions and FS/WTB in the local area) is pretty damed useless. LOTs of floundering on simple technical questions (no better than google) and as most of the commercial postings are in the US with exorbitant shipping to Canada, not much use on that aspect either. And, from my viewpoint as a classic 80's centric collector, WAY too much emphasis on latest Stern LE/Pro/Whatever or modded-to-the-tits game du jour.

This forum, while relatively tiny compared to Pinside is like a warm, comfortable bath, and I'm not looking for major changes (except more Catacomb FS postings!)

Not a bad idea, I am shutting this down and moving to Pinside myself.

Any way you can have the Location field of the user appear in their posts for the mobile version? It's inconvenient to have to log in and look at their profile to find that out when viewing the site on my phone. Otherwise, the look is just fine. Thanks for being open to suggestions!

I will consider this MCS thanks. That and the PM button should be shown, would be much easier.
