    Good news for you is the delete post process is quicker. Should save you some time that.

    Real progress would have been a command line only forum.

    Based on the nasty UI and the nasty moderators, I think I will move to somewhere in the 21st century rather than this kludge.

    The forum seems usable on 21" screen and using a wireless mouse. As for the laptops, it's a non-goer.

    Ok, then i blame the testers. They should give back all the payments they received.

    EDIT : Oops, wrong page.

    Can we cut down the amount of mandatory blank space for each post? ATM one liners take up as much room as war and peace meaning you have to scroll far more to read threads.

    Interestingly the "Previously on..." summary underneath the new post editing window displays existing posts without the extra padding.

    Is this the new forum?

    Like all current website 'upgrades', everything just looks a bit more bloated, requiring far more vertical scrolling than in times past...

    Lloyds bank just did another upgrade and even on a large screen, it's like drawing with a child's large wax crayon. Is this current trend something to do with more people reading via phones or some such?

    I've noticed this when clicking old links to forums.contractoruk.com vs. contractoruk.com/forums. I assume this is because the former is missing from the subject alternative names field of the server certificate (not really an IT geek, so could be off-base ).

    Once a week I get 3 warnings before being able to access the forum. It might keep a lot of the newbies away. If some of the information is conflicting just make it private and we can all blab in privacy.
    I assume you're referring to the current forum, as there isn't any SSL on the testing one; I'll ping admin to prompt him to have a look, though probably not until next week now
