Hey guys, I just noticed a few things that I thought would be important to point out.

When one used to come upon a locked topic, there'd be a little lock logo on the thread title in the index itself. It would also let you click "post reply" then reroute you to a "You cannot make posts in this thread, it is locked." sort of thing. This was tidy, aesthetically pleasing (by not altering the "Post Reply" button) and perfect, I thought.

Now, not only is there no lock logo (so I could read a all 19 pages of a whole, I dunno, Adams Bros. movie thread and get a whole post in mind only to find I can't say anything) but the "This thread is locked" button text is all sorts of messed up.



I know this is kind of a trivial thing, but I thought so long as the new design and changes haven't been up that long, there was stilla time and place to discuss them.

Interesting that you seem to be suggesting that a thread is not worth reading if you cannot reply.

This is not at all what I think.

I do, however, believe that if I see a thread of such unforgiving length and I read every post, purely because of the fact I wish to construct a careful and considered response; then I want to be forewarned of the fact that reading everything meticulously (so as not to err on detail or concision) is not a necessary measure.

I can understand how you would misconstrue my statement, though, and for that I apologize.

From the looks of the "Silenced Weaponry" thread, you guys did some major fixing on this front. Bravo!

It's much tidier now!
