I like the new shout box. Like it's been stated before this is more organized and easier for you to find whatever you want. The only letdown is that it takes double the space it took before.
Not that we can't scroll down, but how about an option to hide a certain shout box? For instance if I don't feel like reading the contests announcements I simply hide it like I hide the side menu. Just make sure that the important announcments are in some kind of place that can't be hidden away so no one misses them.
Nice change, again, its much more organized and easier to navigate. As suggestions go, I agree with ibra87 in that you should add the option to hide certain boxes. Also, they could be a little closer together, so the section isn't as large. Either way, I quite like the change.
I think that it's way better, yet I see room for improvement. Now as it is it's much easier to see the interesting category, be it raws or scans or art contest. What I think is little inconvinient (yet it it nothing of major matter) is the fact that it's not very easy to find given series at first glance. Maybe some kind of colour or font distincition would help. Either that or changing the box into table with distinct cells one for each realease. It would be small but signifficant change.
yeah i like it very much,.. and i must say that it should stay like this even if theres more improvement i think its good to have an icon in each topic,.. but the way its now is very good more organize, easy to read and understand..
Yeah, i have to agree, I like the new format. MUCH easier to see exactly what's out and what's not yet... also giving the coloring contest notifications a seperate section is good too cuz those tended to blend in with everything else, leaving me a lil confused and having to look a bit closer and see what's actually out... Much easier to just "look and go" since i'm usually pretty busy like all the time...
