The colour used is based on an arcane formula devised many centuries ago by an ancient sect of mystics which has recently been unearthed by Social Strata archealogists. The formula is kept secret for security reasons as if it became public, the results could be catastrophic.


Or it could just be random

The later seems more likely El

I understand that an FM = Forum Member 

But what is a GT and a T is the survey section?

Also, why the different colours?

Different colours to differentiate between Tim and Tom!

I see on the Social Strata help forum that others have commented on the white banner header being problematical for people particularly on phones where the topic title in lengthy, the affect on avatar pictures being rounded (Baz, you've been a bit decapitated ), and the dissapearance of the division betwen featured and other topics. No responses as yet from Social Strata but too soon to expect any.

@Lori one possibility re featured and unfeatured topics could be to insert a bar rather like the one under Profile Information on ones's Profile Page.


The code line "<div id="topicsContainer">" seems to mark where unfeatured topics start. It would mean that the bar would also appear at the start of subsequent pages of the lists of topics but I don't think that would matter.

The fact that the banner heading is showing on mobiles will be fixed (that's apparently a bug). Also, looks like it's not supposed to default to white--I would expect the background color to change, as well. I figured out how to do it  myself yesterday, but I think when they fix that, it will have been a waste of time for me to figure that out.

I'll hold off on any CSS changes until we make any bug fixes, @El Loro

I think the avatars might also be adjusted, so don't make any changes to your avatars, OK?

Yes, and I can do the same, but I'd rather wait until we've done any bug fixes.

We have bugs?

”gets bug spray out” 

I don’t mind , but I’d like the top of my head back please!

Tis not nice when you have a bit missing, is it Bazzy? 😑🀣🀣🀣

Ooh! Things have changed....after a shufti didn't even notice the banner at the top of the page, quite helpful with my record of getting chucked into old threads, at least I'll have some idea where I am πŸ˜‚

Wonder if my little bear is ok....

He is and he hasn't been imprisoned in a circleπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Well. We've made a few changes:

1. The sticky topic heading won't show on mobile devices.
2. Instead of being a stark white, the sticky topic heading will be the background color of the forum.
3. As you can see, we now have the option to go back to the square avis. However, I can see that Baz's avi is still cropped, and there doesn't seem to be anything I can do about it. On the profile page, it says that an avi should be "at least 300 x 300 pixels", and this one shows for me as being 95 x 120...which is smaller, so why doesn't it fit?? 

 @El Loro, any ideas? I might go back and look at Neil's fix (as you referenced above), but that would impact EVERYone, and not everyone has the issue.
