unlike print (where black bleeds into white) white bleeds into black on the screen. So making white text hard to read on a black background.

have you tried turning down the brightness? if I get a headache I know that I should probably be in bed. I also have been diagnosed with extremly mild longsightedness- I have glasses for screens- that helps. old or flat screen?

the site is uncluttered and it's own site- it shouldn't copy other designs. Also, the front page is for news, you can 'read new posts', you can see which forums have new stuff, you can subscribe to the RSS feed (live bookmark in firefox) that lets you see the newest zero replies and latest threads, and the new forum update is coming- I expect a hover function (where you can read the first line of the post)

Well, maybe it is just my eyes. My eyesight is fairly poor, 20/400 or something... can't remember exactly.

I think it was just too many post reading. Now, it seems fairly nuetral and relaxing to look at.

The only thing I could possibly imagine that would be neat to have is a new-posts menu somwhere. But, this forum is probably too big in order for that to work. I mean, far too many "new posts" going on at once.

abcdefg, there is a "new posts" functionality - simply click the "View New Posts" link.

Don't know if this has been mentioned before and I was going to post it under 'suggestion', but maybe this is a good place as well.

I think the forum is fine the way it is. Easy to read, fast-loading, but sometimes I 'miss' afeature that I saw at fedoraforum.org: a (simple) search function you can use from any page and looks much like a dropdown menu; that is, you click on the search link and a menu opens giving you the choice between doing a simple search there and then or going to the search page.

That feature is already in the upcoming LQ release. Thanks for the suggestion.

Again I don't thank this site needs a make over but I do have a suggestion...
How about that Fedora Forum is there a way that all the posts for FC 1 , FC 2 ,FC 3, FC 4 (and i guess theres a new testing version of FC 5?????) can be separated I run FC 3 I plan in the feature to change to FC 4 and sifting through all the Fedora posts is insane.
?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
THANKS

As mentioned, the site will be undergoing a complete redesign in just over a week (http://jeremy.linuxquestions.org/blo...0/1415481.html). As for the fedora suggestion, I can't see a way that would be feasible. While we could require "distro + version" at the time of posting, but 1) I think that's too much to ask (we like posting to be easy) and 2) that wouldn't help with the 1,967,950 posts that are already in the DB. Thanks for the feedback.

i like the site as it is but i think tehre should be a text only version as an option so that non GUI linux users who acsess teh forum with lynx can post (when i tried this while my gui was kaput it let me read posts but no post replys or topics!)

LQ should work fine in lynx, both for reading and posting (I've posted messages in the past from the server itself using lynx).

one think i woudl like to see is a forum for differnt window managers, (with sub forums such as KDE Gnome XFCE fluxbox, blackbox ....)
so that newbies to thease window managers (but not nessaccaraly to linux in gernral) can ask quetsions generic to any disto but sespific to a certian window manager

i for one am new to XFCE and have a few quetsions which for want of a better place may end up in newbie or genral linux
