    Default Member Info on Top or Side?

    Hey All,

    You might notice a small change in the forum template. I moved the member information to the side instead of having it be across the top.

    I've usually preferred it running along the left side and it'll allow us to add a few things in there that I think will be easier to read than if everything was running across the top.

    What does everyone else think? Do you like the info on the side better or would you prefer it at the top of the post again? Is either way fine?

    Thanks
    Steve

    Everything looks the same to me - but, I don't really know what I'm looking for. What member information - on the side of what?

    I probably just don't remember what it used to look like - so it must be a minor change. So, I'm cool with it.

    I'm OK either way, but I think the sidebar layout has advantages just as you indicated. I like this layout, but if I get outvoted, I'm fine with that too. I have no strong feelings on this issue, so I await other input.

    I like the information on the left side, versus on the top. Cheers.

    So far the left side it is.

    Steve do you notice how your avatar and the info underneath it is now along the left side? It used to run across the top of your posts.

    I suspect Steve's issue was related to being logged in during the change. A refresh or separate visit should resolve that issue.

    This format actually reminds me of the old SBF before all the changes, so I'm used to it. Additionally, I'm used to it on other forums too, so I find it quite familiar.

    The old SBF was like this until Feb/March when new ownership moved the site around. Running along the top is apparently the default in vB though I think it works better along the side.

    Side. Side (had to say it twice because the forum beeped at me. One 'side' was a long enough post!) Okay side side side side.

    Polls are still open, but we're getting a unanimous response so far.

    Wow - I guess I just can't remember it already. I had to go back to the old forum to verify what you were talking about. It definitely doesn't matter to me since I won't notice it!
