As far as the news formatting goes, I'm still tweaking it, but what do you think of the formatting there so far?

It's a little busier but I like the extra info to help me decide whether or not to read the article.

Logos in the job section seem a little large and overwhelm the print.

I reduced them even further. What do you think now?

Matches print size much better and look like they belong there now.

I like the changes,  just makes me wish I had the talent to come up with them rather than just recognize when it's a good idea.    +K

I've updated the live home page with the changes to the jobs feed.

I've also made a big change to the new feed on the home page.  It should me more relevant now.  I wasn't able to make a multi-line news feed look good so I have scraped the idea for now.

Much cleaner I noticed that sometimes the white text in the rounded areas disappeared on the edges, this is better.

I changed the forum header to include the new "NukeWorker" masthead like the home page, and removed the white text 'message title' on the blue rounded background as you suggested.

I also moved the new forum message section on the home page to the middle, and moved the news feed to the bottom.

I changed the formatting of most all the test to 12 point font from 10.  Better for old peoples eyes, and little cell phone screens.

I changed the way new messages from the forum are formatted.  Instead of the little "new" icon next to new messages, I changes it so the new messages are bold, and the messages you have already read are not bold.

Jobs section too cluttered with company logos. People don't care about the logos. Show me the money and PD.  :)

Minimize margins (too much wasted space on page). This will give space for more info.  ;)

The news section should be bold to aid in scanning headers (much like newspaper headlines).  ;D

Just some feedback,  O:)

Noted.  It is a little Gaudí.. I mean Gaudy

What margins are you referring to?  Please be specific.

The news section should be bold to aid in scanning headers (much like newspaper headlines).

I just made a change that will bold today's news, and leave yesterdays news not bold.  Its on my test copy, and will be live shortly.

Today is bold
Yesterday is not bold
Older is gray


I reduced the number of news items to 25.
The feed displays a mix of NRC, DOE, and 'nuclear power' related news.

I liked the old job board.  The company logos are the focus now, but I was never that interested in the company so much as the type of job.  I also liked the one liner for the old job board and the red for the jobs that just got posted.  If you could find a way to go back to the old job board but add the logo in smaller it would be great.  I liked having more info in the same amount of space.

Technically, you have more info now...  The 'old' way didn't have the location.

Losing the red wasn't intended.

Working on reverting back to a modified version of the 'old way' now.  Keep an eye on the index2 link above for up to the second status of the changes as I experiment.

What I'm going to try next is using the old format, but instead of red for the date, bold the new stuff, and non-bold the older stuff, like i fif for the forum and news feeds.  That seems to look good.

Ok, new jobs section formatting is live.

No more logo's, back to old format, plus new titles are bold, older are not bold.  Added location in line with the titles.  Moved job category to behind the titles, instead of before.

This shows edge to edge (margins minimized on left and right sides). That's what I mean.

I like the no logo and bold formats you have incorporated.

GOOD JOB!   8) 8) 8)

I like the way the Discussions topics lose the bold font after use.  I'm not big on the News following Discussions, but....whatever.  ;)
