    As you can see, I've made a couple of changes to the look of the board.

    We now have a search function, and I'll start a new topic on how best to use it.

    There is also a scrolling "Latest topics" section and a Friends & Affiliates list of links.

    If you'd like to see why I have an E-bates link there, it's all explained here: Get Cash Back on your Big Fish Game Purchases!

    Now... how do you all feel about the changes? I'm happy to have a search function, and I like having links available, but I'm not sure I like the "Latest Topics" scrolling over there.

    Thanks for asking! I noticed that scrolling part immediately when I logged on today (not with pleasure) and must say I find that permanent movement in the corner of the eye highly disruptive. (also cos the ad line is sometimes animated, too; didn't get round yet to look into turning it off)
    I don't like these effects in games either, lightning, crawling bugs, flying leaves... ok, this isn't a HOG <g> but since you asked: I'd rather have as few unfounded permanent moving, jumping, animation etc. as possible! Smile

    The other changes are fine so far, and btw I just noticed an "Advanced search" above the scrolling window - where I avoided to look at so far, lol! - where one can also click to see results with all words. (no literal quote as I've set this forum to German Smile ) Must check that out further.

    Your site is really grat, Genki! Thanks for starting it.

    One question - is there a setting to take you to the last read message in a topic? When I do the "view posts since last visit" & clock on one of them, it takes me to the first post in the topic rather than the latest one that I've read. Didn't know if there was a sitting for this or not.

    Also, VERY glad that you have a copy of the list of game series here. Don't tell, but it's how I figured out gove's anagrams! LOL

    Truthfully, I didn't notice the scrolling menu until I went looking for it. I tend to have tunnel vision and just look at the messages. It is annoying when I saw it, but since I'll ignore it most of the time fixing it is not crucial to me.

    Katy I have looked at the anagrams and they will take me far longer to complete that I have the time to devote to them. There must be some trick to them, but for me they are HARD!

    I've turned off the scrolling (I didn't like it, either!), and I'm
    looking into how to make it go to the newest unread post in a topic. It
    may take me a bit to figure out, but I am looking into it Changes to the Forum 364988687

    By the way, if my animated signature bothers anyone, I will be happy to change it! Just let me know Smile
