    Anyone else find 3SGTO hard to visually parse?

    Something has been bothering me about this site compared to 3si. I've been telling myself that it's just because it's new, but after a couple weeks now I'm thinking there might be more to it. I'm wondering if anyone else feels the same way.

    Basically, I find it hard to navigate visually. When I look through a list of threads, I have a hard time picking out the thread title, poster, forum, etc. I can't explain it, but it seems to take more energy here than on 3si. I've been trying to nail down exactly why this is.

    Take a look at these screencaps. The first two are 3si, the second are 3SGTO (light and dark). Thoughts?

    I agree, there's not really enough contrast on light, which exacerbates the problem. There's too much information on the screen, IMO.

    I tend to agree with Kenny, above. I'll get Alan in here and see what we can work out.

    I can't see the pics from here (pohotobucket block) but I think you described the issue well enough.

    I'll put it on my list of things to review for the styles.

    Anyway we can get a style that looks like the older VBB (like 3SI)?

    That would require a ton of time.

    Light is the stock vb 4.0 look

    Dark is a style I downloaded and tweaked/fixed.

    Getting a 3rd running that looks like the vb 3.x style would be a ton of work.

    IMHO, the large envelopes take a lot of attention away from what you are searching for or trying to read. Dunno if that makes any difference or not.

    I also don't like the "Started by:", "Forum:", "Last Post:" on each listing. It's just more words to parse. Just the OP, forum name, etc is fine, no need to state the obvious.

    It only shows "forum" on searches where the threads you see could come from anywhere.

    I tend to agree that the folders are not distinct enough. Anyone willing to make some new ones?

    I like the icons there, but they're kinda big...
