Looking great Scott! Can you kindly propose a max signature size though? By all means Chris and Dallas, I love your signature, but they make the scrolling through a topic a pain and they're often 5-10x as large as your actual message is. Perhaps making it a bit smaller would make things easier for me (and others?)

Happy holidays everyone! It has been a while..

I just didn't think I would be seeing a clay court tournament where Roddick is still in it and Nadal is out.   -   Dallas -  31 May, RG 2009

I'm going to change my signature to a smaller picture.  Just haven't gotten around to doing it yet.  But it's coming! :rofl_2:

Ha, this is so true. I disabled signatures in my profile, but I visited this forum on my other computer (not logged in) and I was absolutely shocked at how huge their signatures were :)).

I love the new look of the forum by the way! It's really fresh and sleek, without being alienating for the 'older' users. Nice work  :spot on:!

Glad you guys all like it so far.  I still have a few things to do:

1.  Find a theme that is darker for those who do not lighter forums.
2.  Tweak the logo at the top
3.  Smileys for quick reply.

Feel free to add...
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Yes, a darker theme might be nice. One thing that bugs me a little is that the gradient on the sides of the 'posting' area turns from dark to light really fast, which makes the forum as a whole just a little too bright IMO.

The new logo looks much better! I just think that the green '4' and 'com' is a little too dark compared to the other logos of your website.

And smileys for quick replies would be great!

Yeah, I struggled to get the greens to match.  They match as regular images and then the forum seems to display them differently.  I am happy enough with it though.

I will sort through darker themes tonight and give you guys some options to see which one(s) you might like to have the option to use.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Tennis4You, are you looking for a logo design? I can throw a few ideas: it would take a few days of work... maybe more. But if somebody else is doing that, like you mentioned on the first page I think, then I am ok with it too.

Thanks for the offer J!  The logo on the homepage of tennis4you is what we started with but I wanted it more linear.  The guy who revised it came up with the image above which is much nicer for the forum.  Now I just need to get the space above it to get minimized.  That's a forum issue though and not an image issue.  I have someone looking into it.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Smileys have been added to the quick reply, finally!

You can also expand the reply boxes if they are not big enough for your liking on longer posts.  There are (2) small horizontal boxes below the post box.  It's a little awkward but you can click on the lines and drag them down or up.  I think it will take a little getting use to.  They worked for me, but it's a bit weird.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Looks good Scott. I'm digging it. Thanks for all the hard work.

I like having the mini site nav (which resides at the bottom of the page now), that tells you what page you're in and the levels it took you to get there... I prefer that at the top of the page for some reason. Just a preference. I can live with it at the bottom tho... I think.  :)  (I now see the "go down" link at the top, so that works for me)

Othewise... coolness.  :)

What's funny is that it is supposed to be at the top.  I was looking into that yesterday.  Waiting to hear back to see how to move it back to the top.  Why it is at the bottom I have no clue...
