The text here definitely needs to be brightened, it's hard for me to see it.
I think making the box showing which board you're on should be bigger as well.

The notification symbol should be red or yellow, it really doesn't stand out.

By the way, I have them disabled but the blue exclaimation won't go away.

The blue ! just means you have no notifications. It turns red if you have them.

I believe it stays there, even if you have them turned off.
That... Doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but okay.

I stand corrected - turning notifications off will get rid of the little !.

Otherwise, what doesn't make sense?
Well, every other type of notification icon pops up to do just that, notify you.
Leaving it sitting there, whether the colour changes or not, just seems odd.

It's possible we will revisit that later and possibly change it (Though it's extremely similar to what we had, just relocated).

The focus will likely be on the bigger issues (I.E. The problem with Youtube clips) immediately, with smaller issues like text size and notification changes afterwards.

A more defined colour difference between stickied threads and normal threads, or maybe a small divider would be nice.

I still don't get why there's so much blank space on the sides, this was one of my issues with the old site too.

There's talks of perhaps adding something similar to what b.old had, with pinned posts/hot topics on the sides.

This gives room for that in the future.

This is not the greatest sig in the world, no. This is just a tribute.

I don't think they're too small, they just look bad next to the lowercase logo.

EDIT: Changed my settings, they hadn't been reset and I'm still getting the icon.

Screenshot your settings page?

A lot of that depends on the resolution of your monitor. The higher the resolution, the more space on the sides. Either way, we've already expanded the width of the threads and boards a little.

as long as it isn't filled with huge advertisements I'll be okay.

Unless they're those booty-shaking Badoo ads >.>

>better than badoo

And yeah, Icy is right. Sep7agon 2.0 is a framework. There's space allocated for changes and possible future features.

Wait, I ticked that box when I was trying to fix the pop up.
EDIT: Unselected it and I'm still getting the blue icon.

How much bigger would you suggest? We can't go too large, because then it gets extremely cluttered looking.
Actually, you see the faint vertical line between the Sep7agon logo and the News board? What if you added those faint vertical lines between all the boards? It's a tiny detail, but I think it would give the illusion of size... Like you're actually clicking on a button instead of just the text?

Because not everyone has the same monitor resolution.

We'll look into it.

...what?

That has nothing to do with resolution, everything is scalable.

It has everything to do with resolution. Also, idk, it was like that for another site...

We'll look into it.
And if you do that, you should highlight the entire space in between the lines of the forum you are in--not just have a small rectangle. Um, maybe. Probably looks better in my head than it does in reality.

I believe we tried a larger box, but it just didn't look good. The current size generally does seem to be the most appropriate.

It's just an additional thing, on top of the banner, to say where you are.

What's your damage, Heather?
I didn't know where else to say it, so I'll just make it known here: I love the new notification button. Much more subtle, looks a lot better, and altogether classier. If it becomes a separate button, I'll be very disappointed.

The blue ! won't go away, even if notifications are turned off.

Potential fix down the road, but nothing immediately.

Maybe have the notification symbol be next to the PM icon like b.next.

I mean, its not a issue, its just kinda annoying.
But uh...maybe next to messages. A small empty spot fit for it.

Another minor suggestion would be that when you change the size of your browser window, it would change the boards in the navbar from a click to dropdown to a hover to dropdown menu. Seems more convenient and more in line with the other menus which are all hover activated.

Put the search bar back where it used to be and place the notifaction icon there instead?

Now, the ultimate question. To the left of it, or the right?

I would say left, personally, because... they're more frequent than PMs, and your cursor's gonna be somewhere in the center, so... less distance...
