    Lightbulb Forum Design

    While i love that this forum (in which i don't post as much as i should) finally got a redesign, i do have a few little niggles about it:

    Why does the bar with "User CP", etc, in it have no space between it and the one above?
    Either get rid of the curved corners that join together, or give it "margin-top: 10px;".

    Why does the page always extend to nearly the full width of the screen?
    It is difficult to read posts that go all the way across my screen before going onto a new line, and i frequently find myself skipping or re-reading lines. For the first Div inside Body, i would add "margin: 0px auto; max-width: 1000px;".

    Why is the search form outside the rest of the page?
    HTML Code:
    <td align="right">
    <div id="searchbox">
    <form action="search.php?do=process" method="post" style="margin-top: -30px;">
    <label for="q" accesskey="s">
    <span class="mnemonic">S</span>earch
    </label>
    <input type="text" value="" name="query" id="q">
    /* Hidden Search Values */</form></div></td>
    Why is there an empty a?
    I will presume the <a name="top"></a> is so that the button at the bottom of the page will jump to the top. This would still work if you added id="top" to the first table element.

    Why did i just spend more time finding twenty tiny images than downloading them?
    Sprites, anyone?

    TL;DR
    Install this.
    Look better?

    All just Constructive Criticism!

    I see there have been no new posts there in a week but Technoviking was tracking feedback here:

    I'm not really a gambling man but if I were I'd bet he's still tracking that thread

    Actually, I disagree with that point. I like that part the way it is.

    In my day, we had outdoors in which to run, play, and socialise. Now we have computers to do those.
