May I suggest that a darker line be used as a separator between posts. Unfortunately the very faint line currently in use makes it difficult to identify where one post ends and the next begins.

A similar problem of clarity also exists between the body of the post and the members researching interests. Perhaps a more prominent separator could be considered there also.

Seconded :-)

I am finding one line replies getting lost on here when there is no white space, and peoples researching details getting read over and over, as though it is part of the reply

Surely the avatar makes it clear where a post begins.

It does if you haven't added any Researching points KenSE, but for newbies, it's probably quite confusing. I have to concentrate for a second to differentiate between a posting and the Research bit.

9th - make that 10th - you posted while I was typing GB

since when has the member info (when joined & no of posts) disappeared unless hovering the mouse over the avatar area?

I rather like that as it increases the no of posts you can see on one page (I think!)

just noticed this applies the send message box too

I would also like to see the colours reversed for the preview & submit boxes on a reply

Add me - 11th, I think.

I've taken to hitting Enter to give several blank lines after the end of my posting!


Kense Report 12 Aug 2012 07:25

I wish you wouldn't do that Sylvia, the glare from all that white space can hurt people's eyes.

14th :-D

I keep starting to read people's 'Researching' sections as posts, even with 'Researching' being written in bold :-(
