Cliff, Most times I go to the mall, not looking for anything particular, but just browsing.

I'm usually not looking for anything in particular... I may see a for sale ad that catches my eye, and I may see a WTB ad that does the same.

The point is that I don't go to the mall with just one thing in mind and because of that, the color coding REALLY slows me down.

I appreciate the creativity and the effort, but I don't like it.

I want to scan through the titles quickly and without distraction. I don't care if it's a FS or a WTB and the color bar completely separating one title from another really breaks up the continuity of a scan.

How about moving the color coding to a vertical bar at the very left edge of the topic column. That way you could still do an uninterrupted vertical scan of the topics and offer color coding for those people visiting the mall with one thing in mind.

Yet another viewer's humble opinion.

I appreciate the effort, but to me the color bar going all the way across is distracting. I agree with those who suggest separate groupings. But then, I am surprised there aren't more free items posted. I'll have some when (if) I get my garage reorganized.

Oh, um, how does a person get the bar on there?

By putting "FS:", "WTB:" and the other abreviations in the subject line. It is automatically replaced with the little bar thingy.

Likewise, I wander thru to see the goodies folks have. The original big colour splash was distracting, the small bars are not too bad. I tend to look at FS or WTB rather than colour.

*HINT*
A nice feature for me would be a 'maple leaf' or something in the message icon spot to designate an item in Canada.

How about letting us filter by type, eg WTB, FS etc so we can limit the items to the type we are interested in. Ditto in a search for the mall so if I want to by something I can limit a search to only items for sale etc.

Cliff,
I think what ever you do is great! I even like the new color scheme!

To me, change is good! (except when they raise my taxes)

Keep up the good work!

Speaking of colors, I really have a hard time finding my magnifying lens when I run accross the editited (? blue on grey, small fonts) at the end of articles. I suppose I could increase the screen font size, but then I would loose the rest of the text, Can an early retirement lead to an early case of Alzheimer's?...Bill 1-85 SE: 1 -85 GT: 1-86 GT: 1-87 GT (just added), trying to locate the owner of an abandoned 84-AM4 econo sitting out in a cow pasture. Probabably never get an '88, no one leaves them out, or sells them cheap here in central Kalifornia! Too old for motorcycles, too young to give up FUN!

I think what Cliff had in mind with the colors IS to break up the continuity, which I do like. But, I do agree with Peasepod about the color combinations. Just my .02.
