It also appears that sig resizing is gone, in favor of a tiny scroll bar for the huge picture. While that solves the problem of having to scroll past 500 pixels to read somebody's post, it's still not nice for the people with slow/limited internet.
 
Oh its larger.
 
And I agree. I liked it better before. Looked more tidy and professional. I also don't like how certain threads titles are bolded.
 
But other than that, no major complaints.

I see that my signature pictures exceed right now the signature frame. A bug?

Ok, PA is giving me a headache. Yesterday all the text seemed bigger, but today... I simply can't see it without sticking my nose to the screen...
 
I need an aspirin.
Bigger on the inside.

^I quite like it, it gives me double the space for long reviews. Big smile
The emoticons, instead, grew substantially, they're like mascot heads now.

M@X: I'd suggest restoring yesterdays font size (the current one is far too small), and fixing the signature size. Signatures like Rico's now end up covering the top half of the next post.

I oversaw an important color scheme change yesterday for like 1 minute.

Is it a future project or just an error?

RIP in bossa nova heaven.

I think the reviews section looked much better, the forum format was the challengeSmile

Not at all, they should either be dead, or enjoying their Philospher's Stone on a distant island without internet. Wink

Trying to insert a tunecore flash widget into a post using the "insert movie" feature in the post reply, select "adobe flash" as the movie type, and paste the embedding code into the appropriate field. When I show the preview it looks perfect each time. However every time I actually post the reply all that shows in the finished article is the code that is supposed to embed the widget, but no widget!! Tried about 8 times, same result always. What am I doing wrong????

You might want to ask that in a different section and not a three year old thread...
