Hi For full view that is just the new voting display. Instead of explaining what has changed I think its better to look at the two voting display versions side by side...

I spend a lot of time here so maybe i'm more used to the new display by now but what I personally like is the new voting display seems less obtrusive. The old HOT button was quite prominent (to differentiate the votes) and I think the new buttons just look a lot nicer and cleaner.

I'd welcome your feedback on it if you've got any.

No not really Jay
certainly the 'bar' seems pointless and makes the whole thing 'cluttered'

once again the 'update' is 'mad bright'

Thank you for the reply anyway

Most people won't have a clue what it means. People will be clicking ''+'' thinking it's adding it to their basket and ''-'' thinking it will hide it.

Very silly change.

I think they will know it is voting. We've been live with this change for around 36 hours and as far as i've seen this is the first thread about the topic.

It looks horrendous, sorry.

My tabs haven't changed yet though. Why don't you focus on sorting the notifications out first before messing around with something that isn't broken? what have the development team actually fixed recently? anything?

Nice question dodge.

But to answer yours, ''+'' and ''-'' might be obvious to most as to what it does, but it won't for others. If I logged in for the first time I wouldn't really have a clue what I was doing or what they mean't.

You could just use a bright orange flame like you use next to your logo and a cold blue flame. Some indicator that they will vote a thread hot or cold.

And then the whole thing looks 'undefined' and 'boring'

Seems counter intuitive to have + then -. T'other way around on a keyboard. You could even have the + at the other end if the temperature gauge, so you don't have to move your pointer so far from the scroll bar.

Don't worry, I'll be off now

Couldn't we take a 'fallow' year at some stage like Glasto ?

Didn't the really old site have something like this, or am I dreaming that?

Deeky will know X)

I would just like the problems that have been moaned about for months and months fixed before someone decides that we need to see things differently.

But hey, who listens to what the users want?

Not so keen as not sure what I have already voted on, not so easy to differentiate but it's not a big problem and kinda like the new bar to see when scorching.

I really do not dig the new layout. It in no way improves on the previous..

Once you've voted is your vote preference highlighted when you refresh?

I think the +/- button should be the other way.

It isn't the same. The old format allowed the first line or two of the deal blurb to show in this view, but now only the title shows.

Correct.

The link I provided shows the "Text Only View", not the previous "Default View" (that was once called "Full Details").

The "Text Only View" has not been changed.

Sorry to say this (and yes I'm a bit late to the party for commenting but had previously looked for a thread about it and couldn't find one and then for some unknown reason it's come back in my mind today...the strange meandering thoughts of this tigger know no bounds!!!)...anyway I can tell you exactly what I hated about it...the plus and minus signs being the wrong way round...should be negative to the left and positive to the right.

Think you also hit the proverbial nail on the head when you said the hot button was a lot more prominent which to be honest meant you could vote without really thinking about it...I find the new buttons really irritating and every time I went to vote hot or cold I had to momentarily pause before clicking as I'd automatically go to vote cold using the left hand button and hot using the right hand button...hence the reason I say the plus and minus are the wrong way round. Yes I know the counter argument will be "you just have to give it time to get used to the change" but somehow I think it's going to take a lot of time to overcome a lifetime of mathematics i.e. graphs: left of zero negative, right of zero positive.

Mind you at the end of the day it probably won't really matter what HUKD users say about it as it'll end up being implemented anyway and we'll all be told it's better for us, the users
