in thread plz replace this super ugly & damned bad board by a supergood one: take open source [of course]

hi you guys - to avoid all misunderstandings - i love you for your great experience - but to spell out the truth Threaded boards like wwwthreads or flat ones like 1. phpBB 2. vBulletin do a super job.. i am new to the board - and i must admitn that the usabilty is not so good - one has to look here and there- to find the necessary infos. TAKE a look at 1. DEVSHED.com 2. Dainweb.com they have supergreat forums - just my 2 cents your perl girly

    Can you elaborate a bit? I find the PM forums a lot clearer than most boards I've used, because it has threads - and message boards without threads are useless for discussions. Also, unlike devshed, it doesn't allow people to fill up screen space with useless avatars so we can all concentrate on what's being said.

    Update: I have no idea what http://Dainweb.com is, and I can't find the forums since I can't read Chinese.

      I think you hit one usability feature on the head here! The basically spartan interface of Perlmonks is perhaps one of its best features. Putting statistics, rankings and avatars in the threads makes them far harder to read and follow. The content intensive design of the Monastery is one of its great features.
