For the record I wasn't consulted for the forums redesign, nor did I get a preview of it but overall I'd say the team have done a great job and I'm sure they'll address all the concerns aired in the next few weeks.

I love the way you compliment the team and at the same time make sure everybody knows you had nothing to do with the change.

Seriously though, I am certain you are right and the initial kinks will be ironed out in the next few weeks or so.

Except for the conscious design decision to make the spacing larger for better touch experience and willingly make it much more unwieldy for desktop use. That is not a kink or bug, its an explicit feature.


I think it's fair to say that desktop screen resolutions have changed slightly since I designed the "compact" forums back in 2000.

Not really on 13" MBPs, the most popular Mac of the current range.

- Vertical resolution of a 2000 15" PowerBook G4 (there was no 12" PowerBook back then): 768 pixels

- Vertical resolution of a 13" MBP: 800 pixels
