I've updated our privacy policy! Aren't you all sick of getting emails about that? (I've considered sending out a mass email to remind people that the forum is now here, and that they can request to have their account removed, but I decided against it, I think it would do more harm than good, by annoying people..)

relevant: https://xkcd.com/1998/

(Ours ended up being a bit too long, but the first sentence really covers the gist of it. I've also changed the "terms of use" that people see before registering, it now just says "Do not break any laws please.")

It isn't quite true that nobody can see your email address, admins (access to ACP), and possibly moderators, can see it. Other than that it looks very good.

Fair enough, I've fixed that. And added some more legal crap. Now I think I'm really done with it...

I have to admit that not having the site use the whole page hasn't been as bad as I initially thought it would be. I still think there's a bit much unused space on the sides, but I do admit that it makes for easier reading.

Makes my signature look bad though.

Think of all the ads we could put there on the sides! :D /s

I'm still a bit unsure about the layout, maybe we could adjust it a little to find a good middle-ground? I'm not good with CSS but providing a certain percentage of screen width should work, right?

Famous last words.

I have no idea, not that great with CSS myself, especially not when it comes to mobile vs desktop and all that. I guess it could be possible to test somewhere?

What year is this, 2006? Nowadays ads are “integrated” and should appear after every Froggy and Thingers post.

As far as the layout, isn’t there an existing theme that does that? So you don’t have to fiddle with CSS :oops:

I think we have moved backwards, I'm sure I remember that forums used to do that back in the day. They were probably more visible than what many sites do today though.

I use an Apple laptop I got in 2010. I think the resolution is 1280x800 maybe?

So I think what you're saying is...the forums are now designed for technically inept old people like me?!
