Hello TamaTalkers!
I just wanted to post a quick note to let everyone know that I am trying to make some small tweaks to the look of the site. My goal is to make it as unnoticeable as possible. However, there are some areas where I am making changes to stuff you might see... Today I made some small tweaks to the look of posts in topics. Notice a change? It is just slightly different so hopefully you didn't even notice.

Why make changes? I need to clean up the code here. Also, my HTML skills have gotten better over the years and so now I see some things I did years ago and cringe. :rolleyes:

Please post if any of the changes make your page look really strange.

Thanks!

Admin

^ The name should be under their avatar.. Though some said that it still wasn't there.

It's definitely different. I didn't really see why it got changed, but I'll get used to it. (:

lol

The usernames are under the avatar. In some cases, I had to clear my web browser's cache to see changes.

I can move the avatar and stuff to the right or left if people want it changed. Reason for the change? I am cleaning up old styles of html. By doing this we become more understandable to search engines like Google. Being more understandable to Google means people can find stuff they search for easier. Sorry to spring this little surprise on everyone! lol

So far I like the changes, but I can't see people's usernames underneath their avatar unless I highlight the area, as if the text were white. Way to fix this?/How should I clear my web browser's cache?

It depends on which Web Browser you are using. It can usually be found in Tools -> Options / Internet Options. Somewhere in that window should allow you to delete Browsing History as well as Clear Cache.

I noticed the change of the user names immediately :) It looked strange but I think I have already gotten used to it! Everything seems fine on my part.

Check out [url=http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Browser%27s-Cache]this page{/url] for info on how to clear your browser's cache.

Also, please everyone let me know if you are having any problems like no user name showing and include which web browser you are using. :)

UPDATE! OK I think I found out the problem with the usernames not showing up... I found the problem depended on which skin you are using. Hopefully we are all fxed now. :)

So far no problems, unless you count text fading out and in


























(sorry... old joke)

I like the changes (:
The skin I use made it hard to see the usernames of people.
Now it's easy, since it's under the avatar.

I dunno...seems kinda weird to me, though I've hardly been on since the change anyway (No offense...). Maybe I'll get used to it soon, though.

Yup, I'm fixed. Thanks! I'm really liking the changes now, though they're pretty minor... ha :D

I use the Tamagotchi Connection Orange Burst skin. Do you know when you post in a topic and at the top of the post it says the time and date you posted? It looks rather stange. Maybe it can be bolded/and underlined? o:

I finding the changes at bit weird at the moment. But I'm sure I'll get used to it. xD

When I came on yesterday, I saw the usernames weren't at the top like they used to be and I was like "The usernames aren't there anymore!" then I saw they were under their avatars. It would be cool to have the avatars on the left. It's a great change though, looks tidy.
