@Walter - I've added a second tab top-right: 'New Posts' shows all unread posts, 'Your Threads' shows new replies to threads in which you've posted. The tab descriptions might not be clear enough, but 'new replies to threads in which you've posted
' is a wee bit long... any suggestions for alternatives are welcome.
As for Mamosa... um, aye. Maybe next year
@Tyger - The fixed-width layout was one of the more major decisions made during the redesign (which is only about 20% of what was done to the site), and I agree that to many members it may be the most drastic change.
The liquid layout was causing too many hassles when it came to adding and correctly placing features within the page structure. Additionally, the liquid layout was stretching the content riiiight across the screen at higher resolutions - assuming the browser window was maximised - which doesn't make for the best readability of text content.
We went for 1024x768 which seems the most conservative minimum. Besides which, if it's good enough for the BBC, CNN and ArmedAssault.info, it's good enough for us
