Some suggestions for the developers/moderators to improve this forum:
- Change the template and do it more good looking, more visible, easier to read, more colored, change the font...
- Add a "Resolved" button to mark a thread as resolved
Thanks

i don't think there's anything wrong with the webpage layout, it's more the questions of the (new) users that leave out a lot of information, that is needed for their question(s), good looking or more color wil not add any benefit,
the layout is functional and clear, that's not the problem.
Some additions to the Getting Started FAQ giving some "pointers" about giving more info with their questions, would save much guesswork.

It is obvious we have different tastes in design.

His forum is not about using the latest design, or flashy looking pages. It is more about sharing information with clear, easy to read format that can be used on many different platforms. Sometimes simple is the best approach.

I know that Denny, when I mean design, I mean easy to read, clear, color for title's threads, remove the footer, remove the header... In my opinion the design should be improved to achieve this. For me there is extra info irrelevant that should be hidden to ease the read, the idea for me is keep it as much simple as possible.
The first time I used this forum (and still now), I found difficult to read at a quick glance, many text together, maybe because I am used to other forums formats.
In further time I will get used to the forum format, and a "Resolved" button would be very useful too when looking for solving an issue.
