    Seriously, the layout on Catholic Weddings makes me want to stab myself in the eyes. For the love of God do not white out the boards and ditch the lefty links. 

    Andplusalso, will someone effing answer me for the millionth time I've asked about the mod on my local board? I mean seriously, this schits getting ridiculous.

  • Can we please not change it? It looks like a sad attempt to copy Facebook, and no one like the Facebook layout. We just use it because we have to.

    [QUOTE]While y'all are jimmying with the board, how about improving the mobile interface, or at least give us the full keyboard.

    So much of this! The mobile version is pretty bad.

    You're probably right. We can still complain in her general direction since it will totally make us feel better.

    K, you win! She never came back and look at what happened? Gah. Yuck. 

    And now, back to FB. For good. 

    Also, wtf with my siggy? Where's my picture and why is my blog link incorrect? I hate this. TK, boo you whore.

  • I hate this layout & it totally seems like TK is trying to become facebook. I agree with everything above especially the mobile app, that's one of the major reasons I hardly come to TK.

  • @knotjackie This layout is terrible and makes it harder to find the posts I want to read. I agree that the time spent on changing all this wasn't worth it and should have been put towards the mobile interface instead.

  • Yeah, I hate this layout too! Not enough color differentiation and where did all the links on the left go? 

    And why are all our signatures changed back to shoes? That is weird!!!!

    And what happened to the f-ing spell check??

  • Hi guys - sorry for the delay. The design comments are with our team.
    My main concern was to improve all the features- The PMs, notifications, mentions, etc. Everything will be updated by May 16th and the glitches should all be worked out by then, including siggys. The design team is working on things as well.

    Siggys are really the least of my concerns. Can we please have the links to the other boards back on the left side at least. It's such a PITA to move around on the boards now.

  • I hate this new format. 

    I like the tagging feature, the other forum I frequent put this into effect last month, and it has worked out really well. I also like the idea of notifications for PMs, but the overall layout change blows.

  • Hey guys - as you can image, things have been a bit nuts over here for me. All of these issues are being addressed - the siggys, the color, etc. Bare with us through the 16th while all boards get updated- but then mobile will be great.
    Thanks!

  • I still don't get why the whole layout had to change just to enable the new features. This thing is way too hard to read.

  • Just because I'm curious which of my signatures will pop up, I haven't changed it in ages, is it all my fault TK is bringing back random siggys?  I'll be better in the future guys!
