Ahh, I found it. Y'all moved the menu bar on me.


I'm an old man, I don't deal well with change.

I'm not dealing with it well either...the font is too big in the bread crumb and doesn't match the links above it nor the "since your last visit" next to it, the commonly used items in the menu are not anywhere near where the user's attention is...over all it is very poor layout as far as being user friendly...but that is just me. It would make more sense and be more correct to put the
* Mustang Evolution| * Mustang Forums| * Ford Mustang History| * Mustang Garages| * Mustang Pictures| * Popular Topics

up at the top of the page and the commonly used items back where they used to be right below where that line is now.

It took me a good 5 minutes to find where to log-in, I'm on a computer at the school. Finally, right before giving up I saw it in the very top of the screen...

That's just because he was so used to the old way.

I adjusted the font size of the navbits area.

I will see how I can rearrange the links better but I kinda like them at the top like that

It is your site which is why I won't push the issue...but...usability-wise, it is not very user friendly. When you are looking at the middle of the screen reading, then you have to scroll all the way to the topmost edge to get new posts, mark read, etc...common tasks...it takes away from the astetics of the site. Add in the fact that the not so commonly used links like garages, popular topics, etc are more easily accessible...it falls into the WTF category.

In the end, as long as there is a forum, who cares. But, the menu layout does suck when it comes to user friendliness. /off soap box.

The current location is much more better. It puts things nearer to the thread and not off in right field.

If you got any more things you think can be better design wise let me know... trying to get it all cleaned up. I had to change a lot of stuff so things could be missing/out of wack.

We really gotta eradicate those.
