    Default Recent Changes, or Enhancements

    Our recent changes, all purely cosmetic, have been made and I was curious what your thoughts were on them.

    If you haven't noticed them, here they are...

    The first (1) change was adding a "XJ" avatar to replace the plain looking folders.

    The second (2) change was replacing the double down arrow heads with a MT tire. What's the correlation between the two, well graphically nothing I guess, but the tire looks cool. If you didn't already know if you click the (NOW) tire it will take you to the first unread entry in that thread.

    The third change (3) is the MT tread pattern in the various borders on the site.

    So what do you think about one or all? Do you think it makes the site more appealing?

    Maybe too busy?

    I like the changes. I haven't entirely figured the yellow marks out in the Jeep yet. The tire is better since it is bigger and easier to hit with a cursor. The one gripe I do have however is on the podcast button. The actual area of the invisible button for it is much larger than the icon. I have hit it by mistake so many times while thanking people for their post. That part if it is getting annoying.

    Yeah I thought that was strange too. I think what it is, is even though the image is a circle I think the clickable area is a square.

    If you image a square around the circle that may help you move it far enough away from what you are trying to click. It happened to me a couple of times, but now I give it enough room.

    Yeah, the changes are cool. I've done the same thing with the podcast button, and even worse when I'm on my phone and I zoom in, the podcast button gets huge

    I'm usually on XJTalk on my phone, so I have the same problems with the podcast button. Not a big deal though and if it helps get the word out for the podcast then I'm all for it.

    I toned the tread pattern down see if it's better now. You may need to refresh the screen.

    Right now my options are have it or remove it. I need to research more coding so I can place a close button on it.

    Now that I can actually see it, it looks nice Tony. Being another member who uses their phone I do agree with Jimmy Boy and Abe, the floating podcast button is slowly becoming an "annoyance", zooming in makes it big and hard to select anything without hitting the button and it openening up a new screen....on my laptop its fine just on my phone. (Dont get me wrong, I like having it tho!!!)

    I like them so far, the little XJs are neat. What does it mean they're upside down... need a winch? But seriously i think its another one of those little things that make this place unique.

    Just noticed the tire tread border now looks like tiger stripes.
