CHANGED General Interest now General Interest (Chat).

Well done. That was confusing to me and a lot of others!

You mean it's not General Interest (Hobbits 24/7)? :)

Cool beans. I like everthing, especially the color added to the sidebar. Makes it much easier to read. Great job!

Very nice. "Browse All" could be renamed to "Classic FR".

I really hate to be a whiner, but is there anyway to add something to the polling section like: "I don't want to vote in this poll, so please send it to the bottom."

Oh, this is a serious suggestion : Make the Breaking News sidebar color a different shade from the other side bar topics.

That would make it easier to find on the fly.

So far it looks good and behaves well.

I won't mention the search by post time or relevance thing.
Don't need to bring that up again.

John the "Browse All Forums" is a good idea- I've had several older members mention to me privately that spliting the board into several was a reason "you don't see me much there anymore."

The sidebar color looks nice, although I'll hold an opinion is abeyance for now- I have a little trouble distinguishing which links I have already clicked- but that's more my eyes than your change.

Many thanks for all your hard work to make FR even better than it is!

I'm still pining for the day that the number of the comment I'm replying to comes up along with the poster's name.

I can't tell you how many times I have to write, "I agree (disagree) with your comment # 231", etc.

This would save the reader of my comment endless scrolling up, up, up, to find the original reply that I'M replying to.

Also would save me the time in reproducing other freepers comments on the top of my own reply.

Hope you follow me on this!

It looks really nice, John. I often thought that for *really* breaking and important news, the mods can make the title red. Just an idea...

I was thinking about user-defined colors assignable from the subscriptions page. I might hack that in right now just because it sounds interesting.

Shouldn't this be moved to chat? ;)

I was completely unaware of the ”Chat=General Interest” issue until this weekend. The new labeling will help with the confusion.

Actually, I was referring to Kennedy being 'on the floor,' presumably next to an empty Chivas bottle.

Hubby set me up with a new monitor today and I thought that was why FR looked different! Nice job! Good use of color and the whole chat clarification thing. You rock!

I would throw in a white separator row between each category on the right just to break them up a bit.

just a <tr><td bgcolor="white">&nbsp;</td></tr>

Thanks so much for the 'Browse all' option for the forums and the other good work you did.

The color side bar works for me as well.

Good job!

This is just an idea but how hard would it be to let users delete comments in "my comments".Many times I am pinged to articles I care nothing about but I still want to remain on the ping list of some posters.The my comments section gets real cluttered at times.For instance I will bump a thread just to be able to find it a week or so later.Thank you again for this forum.
