My eyes are bleeding. That is all.

I agree, a bit like getting slapped in the face with a tuna.

Bleeding how?  Too much white space?  Too much HPE green?

Re: HPE new forum design

Not sure anout the precise problems, here are some thoughts:

  • the white feels a little to white
  • the body text looks bold
  • although there is not a lot of green it is pretty 'in your face'
  • in the textarea, as I type, the cursor is disconcerting, it looks too low, not sure what is doing this (I am using chrome)
  • I will probably get used to it but the auto-save disorients me, everything jumps for a moment
  • a minor one, I used to like seeing the number of posts next to my name 'hey, I got to 100', I miss that

 

First time I opened the forum today I recoiled, it was not one of those 'hey, nice new design' experiences.  I am not suggesting it is fundamentally bad but somehow a mix of a few minor things just sprang out at me.

firefox cursor seems fine to me.

Yes, I noted that.  :-(

 

>used to like seeing the number of posts next to my name

 

Yes, not just posts but numbering of replies.
