    Re: New Forum Update

    It takes a bit of getting used to, but I think the new style looks a lot cleaner.
    However, I find the text in code blocks very hard to read now due to the used font/size. I'd appreciate if this could go back to Courier 12pt (at least, I think that's what it was).

    Edit: after looking a bit better, it seems to be just the font size that's a bit small.

    Re: New Forum Update

    I have trouble searching for my old posts (only user name specified). The search come up empty regardless of if it's basic or advanced. Is it just me or does anybody else have the same issue?
    I'm running IE9 on Win7-64 Professional

    Same here...but I'm not in the habit of searching my own posts regularly.
    If the post was helpful...Rate it! Remember to use [code] or [php] tags.

    You're not alone here. I confirm that Advanced Search fails to find anything by User Name.
    I'm running IE9 on Win7-64 Professional
    I doubt browser could cause any effect on search engine. (FF13.0.1 on Win7-64Pro)

    As for the forum's look-and-feel, I really hate this khaki theme, and in the past I always reverted to the old CG color scheme, the bluish one.
    Best regards,

    OK, just one tiny thing : The reputation thingy "Add to user's Reputation" link, takes some time to get used to. It is at the bottom of the poster's post, on the left

    I agree, why the dark blue + brownish green combo ?

    Generally I like the new look, but I find the smaller font sizes are just a little too far on the small side for my 52 year old eyeballs, on my 17" screen.

    Sorry to insist. Its just that I've always found that threads in which reputation is given tend to be interesting conversations, and I always learn something from them re-reading them later.

    Is this even possible right now? If not, would it be something worth considering doing?
    Is your question related to IO?
    Read this C++ FAQ LITE article at parashift by Marshall Cline. In particular points 1-6.
    It will explain how to correctly deal with IO, how to validate input, and why you shouldn't count on "while(!in.eof())". And it always makes for excellent reading.

    I agree!
    Еspecially tooltip font(s) are too small.

    What else I find to be not good is almost the same colors for regular text and the links. It's very difficult to distinguish between them.

    AFAIK, It shows only the last 25 odd threads in which you have recieved reputation. You have to keep in mind, some members have been rated a million times ( well not really a million, but A LOT ), so to show ALL Reputations recieved would be quite impossible, IMHO.

    Some people have over 5000 Reputation points, and to list all the threads in which that user recieved reputation would amount to many many threads.

    Maybe Brad would have a more definite answer

    Strange!
    I see only two buttons on the left side:

    PS the tag bars have disappeared again from my Google Chrome...
    PPS: forum slowed down in the past 20 minutes...

    and what the ****! I cannot add any smile anymore!

    EDIT: Ah, OK. I was just reporting to help.
