    It wasn't a typo, actually. It's been that way since I introduced the Leaderboards. But, your way makes more sense.

    I don't recall but can you give multiple items at once?
    If so, "items" would potentially be incorrect.

    Right after I posted I realised that "times" was probably meant as "number of times".

    It says "Items ExchangeD(<-) for Team Points" and not "Item Exchange for Team Points".

    I meant the same you realized after Soda's post.
    The original said "Times", which for me means each time I have exchanged items. Not the number of items but the successful exchange.
    If you can give more than 1 item in the exchange and "log" once per exchange, "Items" would be wrong... get what I'm saying?

    My issues with this forum design are the complete opposite of yours... I want things to be more compact because I feel they "breathe" too much. We had a phpBB3 before this and I preferred that simply because it was so simple.

    Personally I think the issue is that you're browsing on such a low resolution. Not sure why anybody would be using 1024x768 in this day and age... I have no real issues with this forum on my 1366x768 laptop or 1080p monitor.

    Looking at those pictures, it seems you prefer sites that have little to no design as opposed to actually having design. "No offense".

    Standard Arial font, running at 1024x768 probably running Windows XP or Windows 7 in "Classic" mode. Honestly, if anyone is designing targeting that spec, they're really not designing at all. We'd rather not stay in the past.

    In fact, I'd say the websites you pointed out are actually WORSE for lower resolutions than this one. Just look at all the unnecessary user information on the left side of every post, making each post take up an EXTREME amount of height. Where as the posts on our forum, we actually don't put any extra information that doesn't need to be there, so more posts can fit in a topic.

    Also, our forum is not really 1080p specific either. Site looks fine at 1366x768 and even 1024x768, granted the main forum page does look at little crowded at 1024x768, but it certainly isn't terrible.

    Here's some pictures:

    Black Paper's Deals drop charts as well as Coren's Prize List have been added to the home page. Makes it much easier to find, so you don't have to dig through the forums!

    Thanks and yes, no more digging in the forum for these. Very useful addition. :)
    One thing though. Day buttons (Sunday, Monday,...) on Coren's list should fade to black (dark grey) on mouse over, just like those buttons on the drop table page. It's probably just a missing CSS class. And going back to Top buttons are centered on Coren's page, but being aligned left on the leaderboard page. Maybe mouse over should fade to grey, too.
