What do you think looks better, the start page with tables with borders (like on http://www.rybkachess.com/deutsch/index.php ) or the page without borders (like on http://www.rybkachess.com ) ?

And do you have some other suggestions for the design? I'm thinking about the front page at the moment, somehow it could look (even :) ) better.

Hi,

In my opinion it looks better with borders. It seems just more orderly.

I think it depends a lot on the choice of information you want to display. Sometimes you need to make some order, other times, there is so little information, that it is better without extra lines or whatever to define unneccesary order. I don't quite like the bordered version, I think there are too many unneccesary lines there.

Wrong question. The real flaw of the board is that it moves answers to postings more and more to the right until there is no longer space and answers get associated with the wrong posters and so on.

The question is about the website, not the forum...

Silly me.

In my opinion it looks better without borders because it is in English, and I can't read German.  ;)

Which of these am I voting for if I choose "I like the current design" or "I don't like it"?

for the general design of the front page, I know, it's somehow not ideal, but I can't change it anymore...
Parent - By Felix Kling (Gold) Date 2007-06-28 17:08
Somehow everyone is happy with the current design and it looks with border as good as without border, so I won't change anything :)

Felix,

first, thanks for all of your work on the web site. I have to admit it's a little bit better than my old version :)

Two general comments:

1) As time passes, there is going to be more and more information. It may be good every now and then to ruthlessly clean it up. Entropy is the way of the world.

2) It's good to stay understated. People are finding out about Rybka in other ways, there is no need for hyperbole.

Good grief!  I looked at the two pages (with IE7)... and can't see the difference! :-(

I removed the borders because a small majority preferred the version without border...
