I like the new look as in it is more organized.  But everything is too narrow or small.  Names of threads on the "Most Recent" section are cut short.  Can we widen that back up?

I think you should just put full size pictures under each comment you post, nobody would mind here.  We love your pictures. 

Well I do in the nicest way.
 
As for Imago you got me once more mate.  Ziveli we think the same.

As always I think the moderation team or someone should create web books under headings. 
 
Book outlines are so lovely. eg.
 
title of book:
xiom Vega
sub headings
xiom vega pro
xiom vega euro etc
 
sub sub headings
which you find under xiom vega pro
xiom vega pro vs tenergy
 
and then at the bottom of that last one there should be a link to:
 
Butterlfy Tenergy
sub heading
tenergy 05
sub
t 64 etc
 
After being a few years we see the same topics brought up endlessly eg
tenergy 64 vs bryce speed
 
if this was easy to locate under heading for t 64 or bryce speed people could concentrate on expanding knowledge instead of repeating themselves

Sub categories, especially for equipment would be nice & would make searching for information a whole lot easier.
The layout of the forum from a visual stand point looks like a wall of text. Changing this would also add to the ease of use while looking for information. As is its a little daunting to look at.

Another suggestion I have is to update the "official equipment super sticky" stcikied at the top of this section, with a lot more stuff. A lot of the information in the "official useful link" thread from the General section should also be included in the thread here, as it applies very much to equipment...

There's no harm in having some of the links in both the general and the Equipment section, and more people are likely to see and make use of it... What do you think?

If we open the door up to retailers promoting their own bargains here, it will ruin the thread IMO. How do you judge if it's real bargain or not? Is 10%, 20% or 50% a real bargain?... and 20% off what?... the original retails price which could be miles above the regular price already...

This is why I think it's left up to the members here to decide which are the genuine bargain, since the majority know what's real and what's not...

I think the "buy & sell" is more appropiate for selling your own persomal stuff... that's what it's meant for...and there you can clearly indicate when an item is sold as well...

Varg: You can keep questioning my exact wording on advertising for ever, as it will never be perfect or foolproof, and I'm sure many will not even read the guidelines... I'm trying to ptu something positive in place here, so how about we just give this thread a go instead, and if it has real problems, we can address them when they arise...

A forum member buys a new blade and he does not like it. He wants to sell it for half the price that he has paid for it. Isn't that a hot deal? Can't he list his product in the HOT DEALS thread because it is "free advertising" and he is not genuine?
 
In Essense, the forum members can't post their items in this thread. The members who have been selling in this forum for few years probably need a HOT DEALS section also.


Well isn't the "for sale" section meant for exactly this?

I have created the HOT DEALS / GREAT SPECIALS section here

Regarding the issues with the search engine on this forum, this is big ask as it requires major changes to the software. I did create a little search site that can help, as discussed in the thread here:
http://mytabletennis.net/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=24270&PN=1#288093

Any further suggestions on changes to improve this section?

Cheers guys!

I suspect it's not the software that's the problem, it's probably a server load or memory issue... this site and the database is getting quite big, putting a lot more pressure on the hardware resources.

In the mean time you can use the little site I've setup (mentioned a few posts up), if the forum search won't do the job. I've included a section where you can seach JUST the MYtt forum.

one thing i've noticed lately--the "post reply" function is very, very slow--slower than before.

also, before, when you typed in an URL, it was automatically "clickable," but now it isn't.  it would be nice if that could be fixed to make it like it was before.

I would think you have to update the software or use different templet.  Either way, its alot of work most likely to make a big change, or not loose parts of the data base.

the search engine. 
 
How are you meant to type for example 05 or 64? it needs to be improved to accept numbers
 
finally i think when a thread is started maybe you are required to first do a search on existing topics and post there so we dont keep repeating ourselves.
 
anyway thats my 2 cents
you are all doing a great job!
 
absolutely my problem ... say i want to search IQ or SP or XT or 64 or F3 ... and it wont let me do that !!!!
