Tech (MNHQ) Tue 10-Sep-13 01:55:05

We were offline there for about 20 minutes while we did some updates to the server. Sorry about that - sometimes there's no way around it.... thanks for your patience.

BoreOfWhabylon Tue 10-Sep-13 02:05:18

While you're up, Tech, any chance you could zap the tosser who's got two threads going asking to buy our used tights?

BOF Tue 10-Sep-13 02:11:42

Has the font changed? It all looks a bit different tome.

Tech (MNHQ) Tue 10-Sep-13 02:15:22

Hi BOF I don't think so - it shouldn't have. Starting a thread works slightly differently so you might see a little popup gizmo, but otherwise it should work same as before.

Tech (MNHQ) Tue 10-Sep-13 02:16:31

But now you mention it it looks to me like there's a bit more of a margin on posts maybe? Like they are indented from the left a bit more? Or were they alwys like that? (This on desktop.) One for the day crew to look at. I'm off to me bed shortly....

DaleyBump Tue 10-Sep-13 02:18:09

Seems fine on my phone, loving the option to use a different nickname. Great idea, it's such a hassle trying to change it on a phone. Cheers tech!

Ledkr Tue 10-Sep-13 02:23:59

I like that option too and it does look slightly different to me.

FruOla Tue 10-Sep-13 07:04:47

The font seems the same, but the spacing looks slightly different.

WayHarshTai Tue 10-Sep-13 07:06:25

You've bloody changed it! The spacing is all kerflewy and it does THINGS when you post.

<sulk>

FruOla Tue 10-Sep-13 07:12:33

Ah, so the option to use a different nickname only happens if you're on the App? I'm on a PC and don't get that option at all.

I quite like the new spacing!

mykingdomforasleep Tue 10-Sep-13 07:14:21

OP posts are no longer a fetching lavender but have my lavender as borders and are infilled with MNHQ blue...

SoupDragon Tue 10-Sep-13 07:26:33

My first thought this morning was that the font had changed. The spacing is different I think - maybe that's made it look different.

Slainte Tue 10-Sep-13 07:29:04

Font looks like it's changed to me too.

RustyBear Tue 10-Sep-13 07:32:09

I've been thinking the font was different - went so far as to look for a screenshot I'd taken previously to compare. My eyes aren't at their best at this time of the morning, but something does look different - I think it must be the spacing too.

SoupDragon Tue 10-Sep-13 07:33:33

I think the line spacing is bigger, there is a bigger gap between the post and the blue bar above and below it and perhaps more margin at the edges.

Tee2072 Tue 10-Sep-13 07:41:48

Yes. The leading has changed for sure.

I want add a file option on the desktop version! ::throws strop::

Sorry, haven't had brew yet.

YoniBottsBumgina Tue 10-Sep-13 07:47:38

I think it's the spacing too - the line spacing deffo, there's a bigger margin, possibly the leading also as Tee says, and the whole effect is making the font look different - more rounded and slightly squashed/stretched sideways.

I don't like it ( It looks nursery schoolish.

If you want a comparison, the text in the sidebar (Recipe of the week, find your local site) is as close as it used to be.

YoniBottsBumgina Tue 10-Sep-13 07:48:15

Oh and that was weird, got a popup for a split second when I clicked "Post Message" but then it went away again before I could even see what it said.

MinesAPintOfTea Tue 10-Sep-13 08:59:59

There's more spacing between the lines and the font might be a size bigger (although that could be an illusion due to the line spacing).

TheFallenNinja Tue 10-Sep-13 09:24:43

Aesthetic changes are never well received. smile

SoupDragon Tue 10-Sep-13 09:33:53

I think it looks fine - no complaints from me smile I just noticed it immediately.

RustyBear Tue 10-Sep-13 09:35:06

I don't mind it at all either - I just needed confirmation that it wasn't my eyes...

NoComet Tue 10-Sep-13 09:37:27

What does choose file do?

Pascha Tue 10-Sep-13 09:37:35

It looks ok but I don't like the font. I can live with it though. Don't like the op being so pale on the phone. I would prefer it a strong colour. Hot pink maybe?

MinesAPintOfTea Tue 10-Sep-13 09:39:48

It would be better if the whole site was the same, but I presume that's a work in progress.

SoupDragon Tue 10-Sep-13 09:41:30

I reckon the spacing has gone from single to 1.5. It's not double spaced.

I actually think I prefer it.

FruOla Tue 10-Sep-13 09:41:49

Choose File means you can insert an image into your post.

There are already a few topics where we've been able to do that for ages. But this is new for all topics (I assume) - although I think it's only available on the App/Mobile sites, it's not available on the Desktop site yet.

Lead is different and there is a HUGE margin on the left. Not a huge fuss but I don't like wasted space, you are not intending on filling it with a stupid advert are you???

aristocat Tue 10-Sep-13 09:56:10

Ok for me, just wanted to check you had changed things!

aristocat Tue 10-Sep-13 09:57:18

What does the pop-up say as you click post message, it disappeared so fast I couldn't read it.

BIWI Tue 10-Sep-13 10:01:12

Spacing has definitely changed - you've gone from single line spacing to line and a half spacing.

Please change it back! It makes long threads even longer to scroll through!

SoupDragon Tue 10-Sep-13 10:02:23

No, don't change it back - it looks lovely. smile

Is there a bigger margin than normal on the left I thought it was always like that.

Aristo - it says please wait, if you close it before is disappears it stops your post from posting. It kept me hanging for ages, I thought I might be on some MN list it took so long!

FruOla Tue 10-Sep-13 10:06:47

MNHQ, wouldn't it be a good idea to 'sticky' this thread so it stays at the top? And while you're at it, duplicate this thread into AIBU and Chat?

Every time there's a site change, whether it's major or minor, it always spawns a multitude of threads - not just in Site Stuff, but generally in AIBU and Chat too.

I'm going to report my own post here grin

piratecat Tue 10-Sep-13 10:11:43

the line spacing is toooooo

wide

please can you change it back.

RebeccaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 10-Sep-13 10:14:58

Hi all,

Apols, this is the plan but things ran away with us blush
We have some other changes coming soon and we will be starting a thread to explain fully, apologies.

BoozyBear Tue 10-Sep-13 10:15:22

its horrible, put it back!

BoozyBear Tue 10-Sep-13 10:16:35

why do you keep changing things that aren't broken? There was nothing wrong with the margin or line spacing.

<pissed off>

BoozyBear Tue 10-Sep-13 10:16:57

and what the hell is that damn grey box that keeps popping up when we hit post?

BoozyBear Tue 10-Sep-13 10:17:57

its fkin annoying, make the box go away, its sending me boss-eyed flicking up and going before you even realise its there.

FruOla Tue 10-Sep-13 10:18:48

Thank you! And by duplicating it into AIBU and Chat means that, hopefully, everyone will end up posting their queries on the same thread.

(Although, TBH, I don't know why some people don't look in Site Stuff first in case there's an existing thread confused)

Yes, why is there a "Please wait a minute" box??

mistlethrush Tue 10-Sep-13 10:37:21

Why do we need a 'please wait... please wait' box coming up? Its annoying and doesn't add anything - I would prefer nothing to happen for a sec rather than something pointless.

Yes, I dont like it when pointless things happen.

YoniBottsBumgina Tue 10-Sep-13 10:41:53

I don't like it either sad The font looks stupid and childish now whereas the spacing was neat before.

RebeccaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 10-Sep-13 10:51:09

YoniBottsBumgina

I don't like it either sad The font looks stupid and childish now whereas the spacing was neat before.

Hi Yoni,

Font and spacing look ok in Chrome and Firefox on a Mac, can you tell me where it looks different? Which device are you using and which browser?
We know classic has changed a bit but we'd like to know if it's elsewhere too.

Thanks verily...

Tee2072 Tue 10-Sep-13 10:55:17

Rebecca, it's definitely 1.5 leading on Chrome and Firefox on Windows. It used to be 1.

Margins look the same to me.

usualsuspect Tue 10-Sep-13 10:55:42

The OP colour has changed on the first post.

It's no longer in a highlighted colour

BoozyBear Tue 10-Sep-13 10:55:44

on chrome and in mumsnet new here.

there is more space between the lines of text, but its hard to pin it down as its ALL gone like it, so we cant compare it to what it used to be like, its just obviously different.

BoozyBear Tue 10-Sep-13 10:58:51

ok, see "Recipe of the week" over there ---> on the top right of the page?

look at the font spacing, see how the lines are closer together?

now look at the posts.

its used to ALL be like recipes' now its not.

YoniBottsBumgina Tue 10-Sep-13 11:08:00

Leading is the space between letters isn't it, not lines? I think the leading is okay.

I'm on Chrome on a Windows 7 laptop.

I have OP highlighting, that's displaying fine for me. The text though is line spaced at, yes, about 1.5 lines apart. It's normal (single spaced) on the "Recipe of the day" and in the box where I am typing my message now. Plus there is a margin of about 0.5cm on each side of the text box, and where the OP/my own/MN highlighting is, there is now a gap of white for 2 pixels between the shading and the blue band showing the OP's name and date/time of post.

I can do a screenshot but you'll have to let me know where to upload it to!

I'm not using classic, not sure what the layout is called, it's the standard "new" one, not Sober Workplace or anything like that.

YoniBottsBumgina Tue 10-Sep-13 11:11:41

OK, you know how inserting a smiley usually pushes that line up but not the rest? All of the lines are now that far apart, so perhaps it has been done on purpose to accommodate smileys?

I will probably get used to it but at the moment I preferred it more squished up - it looked neater!

YoniBottsBumgina Tue 10-Sep-13 11:12:19

BreconBeBuggered Tue 10-Sep-13 11:17:24

Yup, definitely the line spacing. Fine by me, though it does give the board a slight easy-read look. Looks the same as before when I'm writing this message, oddly enough. I only MN on a pc.

Oldieandgoldie Tue 10-Sep-13 11:27:18

New spacing on I-pad 1, too.....I thought it was my eyesight at first!! smile

mistlethrush Tue 10-Sep-13 11:32:10

Is it me or does the text look different in itself - not just the line spacing - but each letter seems thinner somehow....

FruOla Tue 10-Sep-13 11:36:05

Rebecca, I think you need to sticky and duplicate this thread into AIBU and Chat now - whatever plans you have for an information thread later.

There are more "what's happening ...?" threads popping up; as we all come onto MN at different times of the day, these threads are going to keep happening for the next day, or three! Surely it's easier that everyone can see the one official MN thread?

Saffyz Tue 10-Sep-13 11:36:46

Firefox on a PC here.

Line spacing has increased a lot. I'm finding it harder to read and you don't see as much on one page.

PoppyAmex Tue 10-Sep-13 11:45:26

Chrome on a Mac and I like the new spacing - I'm finding it easier to read.

lougle Tue 10-Sep-13 11:51:26

The text looks more compact, but with wider spacings. Firefox here.

BIWI Tue 10-Sep-13 11:57:44

Chrome, Windows 8 laptop and Mumsnet New here, and the line spacing is definitely 1.5. It spaces things out too much.

It looks nice, but when you're on a long thread it makes it looooooooooooooooong!

BOF Tue 10-Sep-13 12:02:02

Advanced Search is broken too.

TrinityRhino Tue 10-Sep-13 12:21:16

I don't like it

make it like it was

<huff>

Tee2072 Tue 10-Sep-13 13:00:17

Kerning is the spacing between letters. Leading is the spacing between lines, so called because they used pieces of lead to space them back in the hand set print days.

::layout geek::

YoniBottsBumgina Tue 10-Sep-13 13:02:27

Oh yes, you are right blush sorry!

I'm also seeing the issue with the OP highlighting (only on Their first post, the rest are highlighted OK)

Am using the mobilr site (not app), and am on Classic

Piffpaffpoff Tue 10-Sep-13 13:16:24

Line spacing is off here too, on my iPad in Classic.

(loving the leading and kerning chat, oooh takes me right back...!)

BIWI Tue 10-Sep-13 13:18:51

I'm glad you've stuck with Verdana though! Don't ever, ever, ever consider using Comic Sans

Primrose123 Tue 10-Sep-13 13:25:31

I use safari on an ipad and safari on an iMac. The font looks the same, but the line spacing has changed. I prefer it actually, it's easier to read, especially when people post long chunks of text.

Piffpaffpoff Tue 10-Sep-13 13:30:00

Argh, comic sans. You wouldn't see me for dust.

At the risk of outing myself, I once witnessed someone very senior get very angry and upset at being asked to stop doing newsletters in Comic Sans because it was considered unprofessional-looking and too jokey for the 'corporate environment'. They were upset because they had specifically picked it as they felt 'it reflected their personality'. There were tears of laughter from me.

Tee2072 Tue 10-Sep-13 13:37:22

Poor ole Comic Sans.

FairPhyllis Tue 10-Sep-13 13:37:37

Using Firefox on a PC. Line spacing is 1.5 here, and it's really difficult to scan threads quickly.

piratecat Tue 10-Sep-13 13:38:59

spacing is still too wide on Firefox. It's really hard to read. I am really peed off now.

what was the point in changing it please?

BIWI Tue 10-Sep-13 13:38:59

Ole Comic Sans should be taken round the back and shot, Tee. Can't come quickly enough for me grin

nickelbabe Tue 10-Sep-13 13:39:28

the font has definitely changed on the desktop site.
it seems wider (as in the kerning is bigger)

Piffpaffpoff Tue 10-Sep-13 13:41:54

I'm with BIWI on this grin.

Tee2072 Tue 10-Sep-13 13:42:32

Mobile site leading looks okay but huge margins at top and bottom.

Piffpaffpoff Tue 10-Sep-13 13:47:25

Also, on Safari but not the mobile site, all the posts are indented by one character space - so they don't line up with the poster's name in the heading. Now that I've noticed that, I can't not see it IYSWIM and it's driving me nuts!!!

piratecat Tue 10-Sep-13 13:55:35

forgot, i'm firefox pc.

strangely tho, the main pages look the same, it's only when you open a thread.

and when i'm typing here in this box, it looks just the same as before confused.

yy to annoying indent, which now it's been pointed out is erm annoying!

Patchouli Tue 10-Sep-13 13:58:03

Spacing and letter changes here too.
I can't remember if I'm on 'muted' or 'classic' - I think it might be muted.
And I'm on Safari.

It's not too bad though

nickelbabe Tue 10-Sep-13 14:01:34

yy to pirate - firefox 23.0.1 apparently... and a PC.

and yes, the menus look exactly the same, it's the threads that are odd

nickelbabe Tue 10-Sep-13 14:02:05

ooooh!
i just noticed the indent tooo!!!

now I won't be able to sleep at night sad

HighJinx Tue 10-Sep-13 14:50:16

Font and spacing look ok in Chrome and Firefox on a Mac

I'm using Firefox on a Mac and the font and spacing look crap different now.

usualsuspect Tue 10-Sep-13 14:56:21

There seems to be a lot of multiple posts about today

nickelbabe Tue 10-Sep-13 15:09:55

yy - i just started a thread and it posted the same thread twice.

FruOla Tue 10-Sep-13 15:34:26

Duplicate threads and duplicate posts aren't that unusual anyway? Remember Chaos and her smart stupid phone? This happens all the time, I don't think it's something new that's just happened today.

usualsuspect Tue 10-Sep-13 15:36:05

I've never seen so many as I've seen today.

Tee2072 Tue 10-Sep-13 15:38:32

Not like this Fru. It's not just one person with a wacky phone. It's a site problem for sure.

HighJinx Tue 10-Sep-13 15:46:37

<imagines MN Tech frantically typing at keyboard muttering 'how the fuck did that happen?' over and over again>

FruOla Tue 10-Sep-13 15:47:01

Ah, OK, apologies!

Xiaoxiong Tue 10-Sep-13 15:49:25

Safari on an iMac here - font looks the same but spacing is all over the place.

Apologies if this has already been mentioned but is it my imagination or is the spacing within a post after a paragraph break wider than the spacing between posts? So for instance in HighJinx post at 14:50:16, the space between her two lines appears to me to be almost twice as wide as the space above the line starting "Font" and below the line starting "I'm".

Xiaoxiong Tue 10-Sep-13 15:50:28

Ha, even my post above appears to have double spacing between my two paragraphs and single spacing before the first and after the second paragraph.

FruOla Tue 10-Sep-13 15:52:36

And just to add, I'm on an iMac using Firefox. The spacing is 1.5 for me.

nickelbabe Tue 10-Sep-13 16:02:41

i worked out the duplicate posts thing.

the Post Message button doesn't highlight when you click it like it does normally

WingDefence Tue 10-Sep-13 16:18:18

Ipad 3, safari.

Line spacing larger, as has already been said.

However, what seems to have happened with the tin dented left hand margin is it's also pushed Add message | Report | Message poster over to the right, so that 'poster' is right next to the screen margin as are the bookmark and saved boxes when they appear.

WingDefence Tue 10-Sep-13 16:18:42

*indented

AintNobodyGotTimeFurThat Tue 10-Sep-13 16:41:19

Really don't like this layout.

I hope it gets fixed soon.

1.5 spacing I am pretty sure and think the font height has been messed with a bit too.

I am on a Windows 7 computer using IE but it does the same on Firefox and Chrome for me, albeit a little less indent.

BIWI Tue 10-Sep-13 17:31:02

Hurrah! Line spacing seems to be sorted out now - or at least it was on the last thread I was on ...

Tech (MNHQ) Tue 10-Sep-13 17:32:53

Yes, should be back to normal now. These kids, can't the staff, etc.

Tech (MNHQ) Tue 10-Sep-13 17:34:11

Can't get the staff, even. Doh.

CointreauVersial Tue 10-Sep-13 17:36:57

While you're on, Tech, why can't I post in Internet Explorer any more?

I've had to download Chrome, and I've resisted for sooo long.

BIWI Tue 10-Sep-13 17:37:45

Has it been a long day, Tech? grin

FruOla Tue 10-Sep-13 17:38:54

You've been drinking those Manhattans again, haven't you Tech? grin

I don't blame you wink

I'm puzzled, looks the same to me, <observant>

BoozyBear Tue 10-Sep-13 17:42:10

yep, back to normal, line spacing and the indent is as it should be!

FruOla Tue 10-Sep-13 17:43:08

Don't forget it's currently 12.43 for Tech, BIWI. He was probably asleep whilst we were all whinging earlier this morning grin

Yeah, but were you on here earlier this morning OYBBK?

WingDefence Tue 10-Sep-13 17:55:48

Hurrah - fixed! thanks

Tee2072 Tue 10-Sep-13 17:57:29

Whew! Thanks Tech. You've always been my favourite.

Even though I think you guys need better CM and QC. And have said so elsewhere.

piratecat Tue 10-Sep-13 18:29:25

thanks, I'll make you a cuppa now.

Allalonenow Tue 10-Sep-13 18:54:29

I can't post via Internet Explorer at all. I really don't want to change my browser.
I might have to go and have a large gin, I am having a difficult day.

ps have posted this on my iPad.

Tech (MNHQ) Tue 10-Sep-13 19:18:45

Hi, Allalonenow, there was a problem posting from IE earlier, but I was under the impression it was fixed. Do you know what version you've got - do Help, About Internet Explorer on the menu and it should tell you. Thanks.

YoniBottsBumgina Tue 10-Sep-13 19:29:01

Hooray! smile

Piffpaffpoff Tue 10-Sep-13 19:31:33

Ah, all back to normal on classic/iPad. Phew! Well done Tech!

I don't cope well with change you know.....

As you were, Tech. blush

ClayDavis Tue 10-Sep-13 22:29:19

Does anybody else view threads as pages, rather than 'show all messages' and have the OP's messages highlighted?

I think the original post that appears at the top of each page used to be in light blue rather than the colour you have the OP's posts highlighted in. Now it seems to be in the same colour as the rest of the OP's posts. I know there's a thin black outline separating it from the rest of the thread but I keep thinking its the 1st post on the new page, although it might just be a case of taking time to get used to this.

PickleFish Tue 10-Sep-13 23:17:14

font spacing is back to normal for me, but there are still huge, huge margins on the sides of the pages.

(Firefox, on Mac)

SoupDragon Wed 11-Sep-13 06:58:46

Haven't there always been big white margins at the sides?

Tee2072 Wed 11-Sep-13 07:24:50

Yes, Soup, there always have been.

Unless they look even bigger than normal?

SoupDragon Wed 11-Sep-13 07:35:32

I don't think they look bigger.

Bloodsocks Wed 11-Sep-13 08:51:47

I'm getting different sized fonts showing on my nexus 7 through Firefox. on every thread there are posts in the normal style then ones that are smaller and more spaced out making them very hard to read.

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 11-Sep-13 09:19:04

Thanks everyone

If you're still seeing things funny, please tell us:

a) your operating system (Windows, Ubuntu, Mac OS, etc)
b) your browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox etc) and the browser version (see Tech's post below for how to do this)
c) what it is that you're seeing

Rowan, help! Havnt been able to post since the changes on my desktop (posting this via phone which works fine). I can log in, write a post but the post button doesnt work. Im on Windows 7, internet explorer 9. Ta

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 11-Sep-13 13:18:41

Sorry ninilegsintheair - it looks like a few posters are having this problem; we're having a look to see what we've done now

Can you tell us exactly what happens when you try to post?

Allalonenow Wed 11-Sep-13 14:04:30

Hello Rowan, I'm still unable to post too.
I'm on Windows Vista, and Internet Explorer 9.

What happens is, I can log in, type my post, but when I click on "post message" button nothing happens.

I'm posting now on my iPad.

BIWI Wed 11-Sep-13 16:01:18

Hey! Over here!

<waves to Tech>

That's me on Linked In! You can check my credentials with Rowan if you need to grin

GoofyIsACow Wed 11-Sep-13 16:01:19

Just testing to see if it works...

GoofyIsACow Wed 11-Sep-13 16:01:40

I can. Confirm it does grin ipad and safari here smile

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 11-Sep-13 16:23:37

We're really sorry about the 'can't post' issues. Tech's on the case, but one thing we're pretty confident about is that it's an Internet Explorer problem. So if you can bear to download and use a different browser for now (Chrome, Firefox or Safari) then you should find you can post without problems.

This might be why there are SO many threads with SO many multiple posts atm.

E.g. it's not just Chaos grin

FruOla Wed 11-Sep-13 19:19:06

Yeah, I double-posted yesterday Hearts, and I'm on a PC, so it's never happened to me before. I had to blush when I realised!

AllSWornOut Wed 11-Sep-13 19:33:39

Things look funny here - massive left hand margin and sine posts have bigger font size than others.

Galaxy tab (Android ICS 4.0.4) and Firefox 23.0.

Just testing on IE....

RustyBear Wed 11-Sep-13 19:49:56

That's IE10 btw - OK for me.

just a thought, on chrome...etc

everything seems squashed.

when you removed the .5 of lead, you've also taken out the spacing at the top and bottom of the posts, so everything looks concertina'd together.

can we have some top and bottom of posts spacing back please!

Massive weird left hand margin here on ipad

Me too Happy. I am on a normal very old pc. Windows 6 or summat.

Hi HappyYoni, I'm on an ipad and don't see any weird margin. Do you get this on a particular page / all of them? Any more info would be helpful. Thanks.

We're aware of the double post issue and working on it by the way. Thanks.

I have the large margin on the left and I'm on an ipad 2.

SoupDragon Thu 12-Sep-13 09:13:58

I have an iPad 3 and there is no large margin on the left.

I've just had a double posted pm.

Havea0 Thu 12-Sep-13 10:02:19

mistlethrush. There is a thread going for that too, and I am on that one too.

mistlethrush Thu 12-Sep-13 10:14:03

So there is - but it was mentioned here first and there seems to be little point in creating another thread to post about something that has already been mentioned - so I added my comment about pms as I haven't seen anyone else commenting about multiple pms.

I hope that's OK?

Havea0 Thu 12-Sep-13 10:18:36

Ah. Did you mean pms as in personal messages, or pms as in post messages?
Anyway, no worries, I didnt mean to come across as the forum police! grin

mistlethrush Thu 12-Sep-13 10:21:23

You did come across a bit uniformy there Have - but I will ignore that - yes, I meant private messages. I know its the 'post message' button that seems to be having issues, but I've never heard them referred to as 'post messages' and the only pms I've heard of are the private messages where you hit the 'message poster' button. So, to clarify, I received two identical private messages earlier on and I've never had that happen before.

my pages are really wide, like they've been stretched for wide-screen.
my margins are now only 3.5cm when they definitely used to be bigger.

and yes, the spacing between the blue poster lines have all gone, so it looks really squashed up.

Firefox, Vista

Afternoon.

Many thanks.
