I have some trouble noticing new Sticky's, as they don't stand out or seem to immediately indicate newness to me. I don't know if the separation (or even distinction) between "Important Topics" and "Forum Topics" headers helps or aggravates the problem. It becomes very easy to skip over those at the top as I quick scan the page. I do notice them eventually (though that maybe only because I am looking for bugs).

A "New Topic - Locked" icon may solve my problem for those locked threads I have not read. Failing that could the secondary icon, titled "f_pinned.gif" -which I assume is the "Sticky" icon, be marked as "New Sticky" when appropriate?

Actually, there's an "s" in Aesthetics, Kanada ol' boy.

Which remind me: is there anyway to edit post titles? Of your own posts?

Actually, there is two s's in Aesthetics, Ancient.

;)

[edit]

Also, if you goto a view posts page (such as this) the little Topic type (Read, New, Locked, ect) icons don't match the title bar.

And the Hot Topic icons have a tag here at the bottom, but nowhere else.

I should have named this thread Trivial Complaints.

I am having another layout problem, though it may be rather specific.

In this thread and this one the voting poll goes off the frame and spills out into the blue and the Number of Votes Per Option makes an ugly carriage return. Perhaps a length limit on poll choices?

That sounds like a Netscape 7.1 bug to me. I'm using Mozilla 1.4 and I'm not seeing that problem.

Specific then.

Also, wouldn't Sourcebook Discussion be a great place for discussions about sourcebooks?

I really like how the old forums had a link to http://www.shadowrunrpg.com/ on the front; it just made my life easier, because I can't bookmark (or change the viewing settings) on work computers. And that is a page I like to visit. But instead of cluttering up that page more, what about putting it on the Sourcebook Discussion front page?

Hypnotizing eyes, yeah.

I'd like to see both that, and the old forums linked from the front page.

I'm really fuzzy on what differentiates between the general Shadowrun forum and the Sourcebooks forum. For the most part, discussion in the Shadowrun forum is about the sourcebooks or material derived from them, so most of the discussion could go in the Sourcebooks forum; however, it seems the non-stated intent of the Sourcebooks forum is to discuss future sourcebooks, then the discussion moves to the book specific forum, then after a few months it filters into the general Shadowrun forum.

It all seems a little more complex than necessary to me, given that new books are getting less than 50 threads and 1000 total posts each, and that the specific sourcebook forums are two clicks away from the front page. But, we'll see how the new setup works as time goes on.

I just thought the Sourcebook forum would be a convenient place for all those "Where's rigger 3?" "What will be in Dragons" "What's the heck is Mr Johnson's Little Black Book" "Update on SoE" ect & a nice place to put the errata for those books that have no forums, yet.

I mean, what is the point of the individual sourcebook forums beyond just advertising?

Mostly to reduce clutter, I thought. Though, as you say, we shall see if the posters agree.

Have I mentioned how very cool the Notepad is?

What if the link just came in the legal text?

That's not really terribly intuitive for newbies though.

However, I think it better serves the Shadowrun customer base to have these threads in the primary Shadowrun forum; after all, to a new poster, that seems to be the proper place to put them.
