Things should be more compact

The current design provides a very poor overview of things (especially discussion categories menu). There are lots of redundant vertical empty spaces and unnecessary text (especially description) that decrease the overall visibility and readability. It is not optimised for regular users.

My main suggestion is to at least reduce the vertical empty spaces between the text in individual boxes of different boards/categories (i.e. vertical space between “name of the board”, “description” and “number of posts”). In fact, the “description” can easily be removed from the boxes, while “last post” and “number of topics” can be put in the same line as the “name of the board”. The details can be put inside each board (description is already in the individual board on top).

The vertical empty spaces between the text can also be reduced in thread boxes inside each board.

Didn’t mean to sound short. I’m at work. Just busy 😃

I launched the site knowing that the desktop version was going to have a lot of critics. But at some point, you need to move forward with what you have and iterate from there. Imagine if adywan or Harmy had waited to release their work until everything was perfect and we were all happy with the results. We’d still be waiting.

The things you pwn end up pwning you.

One thing that is actually nice for certain threads is that you have to go to the first page of the thread before navigating to any other page. Not optimal for browsing updates to projects, but potentially useful for people who ignore clear instructions in the first post of the thread.

Another important thing, pages should be on the thread box so you can directly enter to the last page.
