    I saw this thread before. I don't really have any suggestions or anything, so I didn't respond. Cause I didn't want to bring the party down...

    I mean...I can adapt and get used to anything, but if you really want my input...I don't like the way this looks.

    There are a couple bigger things that I'd like him to do but we need to develop specifications on what we want.

    Article/Video Publishing this, this or this? .
    And these make me feel like I'm being advertised something with all the pics and stuff. But again.. I can adapt.

    Live Video Webcasts - The idea here would be to have a place on the forum where we can host live video webcasts/podcasts. I would like for part of the screen to show video – say with one person interviewing another. The other part of the screen would display a chat window or discussion thread related to the video podcast in progress, where members would be allowed to post questions or add comments. If anyone has an interest helping us to set this up or working on that sort of thing, please let me know.
    This sounds kool.

    Edit: As long as everything looks organized I'm good.

    Those pages just remind me of the "Article" section from here...http://www.the16types.info/vbulletin/content.php ...not really my style I guess...

    I agree entirely. Plus they represent the actual avatars rather poorly - too foggy/cloudy.

    Yeah, I'm concerned that giving it any leeway may be opening a door to it staying, and that that could be problematic, but...

    At least, if we really don't like it, three days will give us enough time to really appreciate when we go back to the envelopes.

    I believe the foggy/hazy ones are for the threads you have already read and the more vivid/colorful ones are the ones that you haven't read.

    Let's give it some time.

    The more I look at this thread avatars mod, the more I hate it. I can't concentrate on the thread titles because there's so much visual noise.

    This might help answer some questions. A couple of these things are configurable.

    Notes
    • Icons are cropped (but never stretched) to be square for display.
    • Threads with no new posts have the avatar slightly greyed out.
    • Locked threads will have a lock image overlayed.
    • Soft-deleted threads will have a red X image overlayed.
    • If the member posted in the thread, they will see a mini version of their avatar overlayed.
    • If a thread is "hot", the shadow of the icon will change color.


    On the configurable point, as an example:
    "Hot" is configured to 150 views or more or 30 posts. If either of those thresholds are hit, there is a blue shadow around the outside of he avatar. Those numbers can be changed or that feature can be turned off.

    I also agree about the tread avatars. It's messy and distracting. I'm all for a clean, minimalist style.

    God, honestly, I'm starting to feel the same way.

    The avatar symbols take up way more mental space than they're worth.

    My eye goes to the stupid, unnecessary avatar symbol, rather than the thread and who posted.

    It also adds a layer of "whose avatar is that?", as opposed to just their name, which is very easy to see in the standard view.

    I am pretty certain, as I was when this idea was originally thrown out there, that this is an absolutely unnecessary and bad idea.

    I'm pro getting used to it.

    It's like a haircut - I never like it at first coz it just looks weird/different.

    Tbh, I never really was a fan of the 'design' of TypeC so I think it can use a bit of colour or some aesthetics. Not saying that this will do it, but it might be a step in the right direction.

    @highlander

    I think the thread avatars is distracting too, and they do not serve a real purpose other than notifying us about the starter of the thread am I right?

    We need more "iconic\symbolic" buttons rather than text based buttons... like those in "Google chrome" or something... Some kind of "minimalist" design that focuses on simplicity and ease of use rather than eye-candy...

    I appreciate the effort though, just giving feedback...
