    Exactly what I noticed, too...
    Even the visitor comments page of a User resembles facebook!
    ... it's a good thing BC does not change layout as often as facebook, tho! :p hahaha
    ... all the negative responses on facebook once the layout is changed... ==||
    But actually, I like this layout too; seems a lot cleaner (albeit not the classic one I'm used to :p).
    Getting used to it should be a piece of roti canai,,, haha ^^


    WOW. What ALL of us have been waiting for... ^^
    EDIT: having just quoted kwun's post, I am even happier to observe that the embed window still displays when quoted.
    YAA!!!! ^^

    I'll give some good feedback when I have time... :D

    Text colour for readability

    Would you consider changing the colour scheme on the index pages such as http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/forum.php and http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?3-General-Forum ? The most important text on these pages is the thread titles--but these are displayed in pale blue text on a light background, not the most readable combination. Then the less important text is darker, making it stand out. I think this scheme should be reversed. Or maybe you could put all text in a dark colour.

    Excellent! It looks very clean :). And it uses the whole screen! Not crammed to the left. Very nice, I like it :cool:.

    Black text on http://www.badmintoncentral.com/reviews/ is illegible:rolleyes:. You need to change the background colour or the text colour.

    When using the spell check it suggest a dictionary to download. Can anyone recommend the one to download as I don't want to introduce any viruses. Thanks

    ..yes, just slightly. I know we can do it ourselves by pressing ctrl + but I prefer it to come "original", you know what I mean.

    just found out the BC new layout today.
    everything looks great, specially the "freshness" .
    but for the picture or image layout, i still prefer the old version.
    because it can shows all the pictures in 1 page, instead of automatically open another new tab.

    Personally, I welcome changes. Well done Kwun for the good work.

    Consider to add more smileys to the existing ones such as [​IMG] (well done, well said) and [​IMG](head scratching).
