    I like the new, and miss the old.

    The Top Colleges list is a list by popularity (as was posted somewhere on cc earlier today but I can’t find it at the moment) Has that changed?
    No, it has not yet changed And to clarify: The current list is based on popularity on this site at the time the list was created/modified, not by any external rankings, but it is not fluid. So a sudden surge or drop in popularity does not equal an automatic refresh.

    THe colleges that win the big basketball and football events (March madness, Big Bowl games) typically see an uptick in applications the following year. Hardly a reason to change the lists.

    What's your opinion on the new website layout? I kinda like, but all white? why not make it white and black?

    What happened to the link to the original (legacy) CC archives that used to be on the bottom of the page?

    @skieurope the search button has disappeared from the mobile version. it was on the top right and its gone.
  • jym626jym626 Registered User Posts: 56,061 Senior Member
    In my view, the search button went back to the center. It had been on the right earlier today.

    Are we ever going to be able to set how many responses per page we see, like in the pre-vanilla days?

    Are you ever going to take the user names out of email notifications, so gmail and other mailers can properly group the responses to the same topic?

    Still think there's too much white space on the non-mobile forum pages.

    Do not like the new avatar at all.
    Annoying. Odd--what is it suppose to mean? Ugh.

    @oregon101 It's a stylized graduation cap/mortarboard :)

    It's a mortarboard hat with a ribbon hanging off of the corner.

    The fonts in the header at the top of the page with "Forums/Schools/Articles and poster information is a bit small. Is it possible to increase the size? In particular it's tough to read the [red] number of new bookmarked posts. (reading on a laptop)
    I am seeing the same small font, and that area around it takes up the top 4.5 cm of my page, a huge waste of white space. On top of Forums/Schools/Articles, centered, is the logo with a target (?) and mortarboard -- I wish it were over on the left out of the way.

    Between that 4.5 cm margin and the google ad beneath it, my content (starting with the forum designation and then thread title) begins over halfway down my page. Maybe that's not dramatically different from the old version, but it feels like it's moving in the wrong direction in terms of space at the top of the page.
