I suppose that way it does look more, well, even, but I also think it's fine the way it is. Right now it's like in little groups, that one looks like it's all together.
Okay, I was no help. xD

I have big problems with taking the lines away. It might seem simple to us, because we're all members here, but to new users they won't notice that there are two forum sections if we take the lines away and on't separate.

  • I prefer it without the lines, but I don't mind it with the lines.
  • Please don't put small ads in the spaces.
  • I think evening the spacing of the links might make navigation more difficult, since they aren't in clumps of ... related ... ness. Or not.

We're not putting ads in those spaces unless someone gives us ten billion dollars to do so.

Well then the sections should be loaded, because as Starry said, it looks like something should be there but its not coming up.

Can we make them evenly spaced then, and leave the lines in between the links? Or would that look funny? I just don't like the clumping.

Does it really matter that much? I mean to us--the older members. It still works spaced out like this. And the little clumps sort of go together.

Sort of, but not really. The random gaps still really bother me, and probably will for a while if they aren't changed (considering I'm still annoyed about the really ugly new quote thing xP)

What do you think of this? The block lines are gone, and so is the blank space, but they're still in groups. It's a horizontal line going through the middle.

OR, the block lines can be added back, with these horizontal ones also.

Well, that at least it won't look like something's missing I guess. But I already said it looked fine, so... Yeah.

Things change; I suppose I just get used to them after a while. It's not like I have control over the way things on the site look anyway :p
