Please, when can the layout of the forums be changed to something more normal? I’m typing this on the underside of the screen. What do I see?
A logo with Toad world: acceptable. A little bit smaller may be?
A menu bar: DISCUSS LEARN FOCUS EXPLORE. Too big, too high, not intuitive. Explore is active while i’m in the forum, but I would expect Discuss, or Focus, whatever. No need for that bar, and uses too much screen.
Toad for Oracle Community It is a little smaller then the menu bar? But way to big!
Unjoin Favorite RSS Feed Subscribe to group activites. Hey another menu bar could be placed somewhere else, so less space is used. Unjoin, is that English?
Overvie Forum Blogs Wiki Viedos Beta Member: Sorry, way too big.TOO BIG!!! I could read that on the other side of the room, Make this smaller. I need my screen space. I don’t use Windows 8 where only one window is active. Why must I make this window big to see something else. There is no information in this way. One small line with buttons as they were a year ago is more then enough. I don’t need tiles. I hate tiles.
Forums - create/edit post. Yes! Yes. Big font, Lots of white. Otherwise I forget what I was doing here
Compose Options Preview: Sounds sensible. not too big, a little too much white. Are those buttons or options I can press? The don’t look like them. Ok, I’m old fashioned maybe, but I can live with that new layout and options. But the consistency is not good with other clickable objects. Colors, pictures, every part on the screen is different?
My post is a: Question Discussion: pardon? what is the difference?
Editing area. Rather small. I cannot see much of my own text. Wonder what happens if I reply to a big message… Hmm.
Tags. Good, GMail has tags too. But how are they used here? Not very clear. Remove them, nobody would miss them. Hey a button? “Select Tags” So they are allowed in this new design.
And finally the most important one. POST. Oh, that one is standard not visible. All room on my screen was taken by … You get the idea.
Sorry, that I bring this up again. Every time I use the site, I get again the feeling that someone is not getting his priorities right. This site is not about being modern and run with the crowd. It is about giving and sharing information and presenting it in a good way.
