IAN, this has been brought up before. On the main index page if you click on the Welcome to the Magic Café, all of the forums will be reduced to just a title. Click on the forum you're interested in, for example Show me the money and only that forum will open up for you. When you're finished, click on the Magic café logo and everything will go back to normal. You'll have to do this each time you visit but it give you ability to find specific forums without scrolling through the entire Café.

Hi david, yes - I've noticed that thank you!

I work in usability and design for my main job - and to support what's been said, the site does really need an overhaul to be honest...I think I've suggested it before, start afresh with a better back end bit of software that's more device friendly and with some custom options and archive this place (but keep the search function so its still useful)…

it will also benefit the users too - they'd be able to make a change once, and never have to do it again (from font sizes, colour contrast and so on)...and your search capabilities will be improved as well...

you guys will probably save money long term too!

Thanks for the suggestions and ideas, however these are all out of my area of expertise. I do know that a member can change the font size to some extent by going to their preference. At the bottom of the page are font size options.

Yeah I have the largest font set also and I like it, and I even have a 32 inch monitor, bigger is better lol. Less strain on the eyes also trying to read tiny text for hours. I would like an even bigger font yet but the biggest (20) now works good.

It's the middle of the afternoon normally a pretty decent time for members to be here and there are only 17 members online at the current time. I'm not sure many of these issues really matter.

You posted that statement an hour ago. I'm here now and there are currently 42 registered members online (logged-in) on this hot afternoon.

I don't think how many people are currently LOGGED-IN really matters. For example, though there are 42 registered members shown as LOGGED-IN, from my side of the screen there are actually 156 people reading the Café at this very moment (Back in the day we use to display how many folks were logged-in and how many people were lurking. We stopped showing the lurker count because it only slowed everything down).

All that said, what does it really matter? Its summertime and people are out camping, vacationing, etc this time of year. Summer is hell for magic shops, just ask any shop owner.

Your pointing out how many people you see actually logged-in means absolutely nothing in regards to whether or not we change our current interface.

For now, I am quite happy with how things are working but I do appreciate your thoughts and ideas.

Thank you. Smile
