There was about an inch of wasted space all the way down the left side of the page on my monitor for the "sun" link. It was the block reserved for avatars and such. I could care less what someone looks like or such as I page through the forums. That is wasted space and keeps being part of the proposed look. If the poster was listed in 1 line before the post, as on this forum, it would be much easier to go through. The fact that it allows full width is useful. The current forums here have a fixed width and I have 60% of the right side of the screen blank. In a sense, this width issue is just as bad.
I believe that the column width for the body of the messages is about the same there as it is here. It might even be slightly wider there. Yes, there is more of an indent, but the content area is about the same.

yup. i was thinking the same thing. I think NO white-space on a line would simply make for an unreadable wall of text.
i'm not vary active there (mostly reading and learning) so i'd have to dig around to find a thread with enough posts to see if you go back to your last read. somehow i don't think you do though. i've never seen that except for these webx adobeforums (but it's an excellent feature).

My mistake. I was concentrating on the initial link which showed a lot of embedded code. For that case, however, it would be nice to have a mechanism to collapse the code since many (most?) of us would not be interested in seeing it.
I checked in Sunday had to sign in using my email address and password the go to another page and choose the account I wanted to use. I did.
Then I specifically checked the item remember me. and I was able to go to accounts all the rest of the time I was signed up.
Now today I had been off for a day or two, Guess what I had to sign in. shades of the same &*$# crude we had with the last failed attempt.
I haven't had to do that since the last failed attempt where we ended up having to sign in either for every message or it went around in a circle 20 times before letting us. and before the first messed up time I had been signed in (they used a permanent cookie) from the day I started with the forum back in Acrobat 5 days until that time.
The remember me is what you had to tick for adobe to send a permanent cookie. I've checked my adobe cookies in SeaMonkey 1.1.14 cookie Manager and there is no cookie set to expire no earlier than 2013 and I have some that will in 2038 (probably longer than I will be living).
As far as I know, the Remember Me on the Adobe site for urls with adobe.com in them will remember your user name, but not your password. Any cookies you set from adobe.com do not have any effect in these forums (at www.adobeforums.com).
Yes, adobeforums.com has a permanent cookie available. But it is disabled at the moment because everyone who wants to have their message history preserved in the new system later this year needs to log out and log back in to get the prompt to associate their current Adobeforums account with their Adobe account. This association does nothing at this point except put in a marker on your Adobeforums account to say which Adobe account to merge it with when the messages from the old systems are combined into the new.

May I humbly suggest that an announcement to this effect should be added to EVERY Adobe forum so we all don't keep complaining? Placing the statement here does little to stop the confusion/grousing.
