    Bit dead in here innit?

    I seem to have fallen out of the habit of checking ca frequently - but the new site just loads sort of slowly and feels...bulky. sluggish. (still loving the multi upload though). But popped back in and updated my sb after seeing that email about the new gallery subsite.

    So how is everyone?

    The site just came back online after 2 weeks downtime due server upgrade.
    Right now it's still all buggy and stuff like that, but I'll get sorted out within the next few days.

    Th best thing I can suggest is to stay patient and wait til everything works again.
    Thanks!

    We're all spiffing - I'd suggest a naked pillow fight if anyone is up for it.

    Ooohhhh, no. Please. I don't want anyone seeing my naked pillows.
    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    Yeah, seems like we're actually back again.
    Still some weird stuff to fix (avatars, some bold text all over the place, ...), but the overall site is working again.

    Okay Stoat, I'll let the pillows wear bikinis like beach volleyball - both male and female ones

    I agree with the original post. I don't like how everything seems so much "bigger". It's not just CA, though. It seems like every site has LARGE SQUARES everywhere. It feels like Myspace after they had their revamp. I guess it must be some kind of trend that web designers just love to death, but I prefer the old, normal-sized message board formats.

    This feels like I just held down CTRL+Mousewheel and upsized the browser by 2-3 points.

    Not only that, but it feels like CA has bee in constant "updates" for awhile now. I remember hearing this "we just got back online - please be patient" thing just last year sometime, too. I won't say I dislike CA.org. I couldn't ever say that, but I do notice that I have completely stopped participating in discussions.

    And it's actually not because of the recent drama! It's just because the place feels somewhat alien.
    Take that feedback for what it's worth.

    The boards will stay pretty well as they are. It took a lot to upgrade the old ones to the new, and I know the add-ons are somewhat alien currently, but so pretty. The server failure nearly scuppered everything.

    So I'm the only person who doesn't like that every time I post in a discussion, my avatar appears on it? I don't really want a long line of MY avatar (mostly because it's one REALLY old drawing) because I posted in 10 threads.

    I dunno if I like the site the way it is or not. Either way, it doesn't really matter I guess.

    One bug I have noticed: Every time I post a reply, the buttons at the bottom, like "edit" "Reply with quote" and the other one seem to overlap with other buttons - making none of them clickable because they're so close together, I cannot distinguish which spot actually clicks what the button I want clicked.

    I'm fine with the update personally. The only thing I dislike is that the picture posts are thumbnails now. Now when I want to peruse someones sketchbook or whatnot I have to lean forward and squint to see anything. Having to manually click each picture to see if it's something I want to look at in the first place is pretty aggravating.

    I am also fine with the update as well. The only issue I have with the new skin is the that I can't see the link text in my profile when I view my posts or friends posts as well as subscriptions in my profile. I think it may be something to do with my monitor since other people I've talked to could see it but barely. It would be pretty easy to change the color of links on the new skin wouldn't it? I've also attached a screenshot of what I mean, for now I am using the older skin until such things have been fixed.

    Yeah, this is terrible. I'm still not sure why some images show as thumbnails and others don't, but it makes for a very poor experience.
