Re: Does everyone knows what is ASAP?

Unfortunately, software upgrades don't please everybody. This one gives a leaner, cleaner look, but it does that at the expense of displaying all the information available. However, it is just one click, and there are other clues.One thing about software is that you end up being forced to upgrade- if not, you end with with an unsupported version that breaks down and stops working. I'm afraid that's the nature of the beast.

Perhaps the Member Info button (or link or whatever it's called) could be made more prominent? It's blue on a blue background, and it's dominated by the member type info ("newbie" and the like) which is black and in bold. I think it would be much more noticeable if it were on the right-hand side, with the join date and the number of posts. If it's impossible to place it there, perhaps it could be in bold instead of the member type info?

Perhaps if it was made to pop up on a mouseover....

When you hold the cursor over the specific area an event takes place (a text is shown, an alert pops up etc.). More information here:

Mouseover - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

And here's a live example:

Tryit Editor v1.5

Ignore the box in the left, just "mouseover" the image. The event will happen 'onmouseover', it doesn't need to be clicked.

There are examples on this forum too. For example, when you 'mouseover' the 'Reply to Thread' button it changes its tint of blue. That's because it is set to use another colour when 'onmouseover'.

If you stick your mouse on your own avatar it will give you some information without you having to click- that's a mouseover, unless you're cooking cheese for Amigos4 and his furry friends.

Re: Does everyone knows what is ASAP?

My iPad does not have a mouse! Instead of doing a 'mouseover', I need to do a 'tapover'! :shock:

Re: Does everyone knows what is ASAP?

Your iPad has no mouse, can't cook cheese and doesn't attract mice- you could have done much worse for far less money. ;-)

You are correct! I could have done much worse for far less money! I could have bought a mousetrap with an HD monitor! :shock:

I stand corrected. I should have used mice, the plural form of mouse, not mouses.
