forum side menu change

Will be running some tests this week
the left hand forum side menu will be moving to the right.

This is part of several tests taking place this week.

One of the bigger things this will be testing is the ability for users to pick to have the menu removed (please note this is only on trail this week)
If the system goes ahead, i will explain fully how it works.
This falls in line with the original post i made about the menus, that we will try to work more in to it for the users.
This test will co-inside with the new PDA version of the forums being launched this week (as promised) to make sure there is no issues with the new menus showing up on the PDA version.

Re: forum side menu change

Sounds good. I bet all those who moaned the menu wasn't on the right will moan it isn't on the left now - I think most will be used to it.

I personally think it would be better not to allow users to remove the menu - it seems like a good way of advertising the mag and making revenue for GameOn

Re: forum side menu change

Here's a thaught, that may have been expressed already but what the heck...

Why not have the side bar up top?

I'm sure it could be formatted to look quite snazzy

The idea is sound, but its limited space
where we can have as many adverts (within reason) on a left/right menu

The top space "may/should/is/hope" being used with the new design (it does on the main web site new design) but the forum design isn't 100% complete yet, that one changes by almost the day at the moment

Re: forum side menu change

Oh OK. Fair enough if there won't be any room. It would stop teh hators nagging about it squishing the page or taking too much room at the top

so its 99% sure going to be added to the forums
when you see it, your understand all these silly quotes (from me) in this post
