    The big yellow box is back, cleared everything in safari and chrome. Do you think it might be an apple issue?

    I'm not having the same issue as above, but I wanted to give some feedback on the new SB and this seems a better place to put it than starting a new thread.

    - I like the new format, it's cleaner and performs better.
    - I think the smilies being turned off is a good thing in general - they're just too big for that format, even though they do add flavour.
    - I feel like the timeout duration is a bit too aggressive; I often like to watch the games on one screen while keeping shoutbox open on another, so while I might not be actively typing I am actually reading comments in the window. Having to manually refresh frequently is a bit of a minor irritant. I would think something like a 10 to 15 minute timeout would improve the experience.
    - I think the box could do with a slightly bigger windows for reading comments...30% to 40% more lines on screen at once would probably be perfect for PC browsers.

    I'd welcome additional lines for Smartphones as well, although you pretty much summed up every point I was thinking of.

    For the Udinese game I did make the screen bigger. I also turned on alternate colours for shouts so that they could be more easily distinguished. Smilies were re-enabled but limited to 1 per shout.

    I was in it for that game; my personal feeling is it could do with being 30-40% bigger than that (for clarity, I'm talking about the visible area you can see without needing to scroll, not how far back the message history goes).

    Like many things there is probably a degree of personal preference involved here. It's hardly make or break, it was just a bit awkward to read in busy periods due to having to scroll to off-screen comments. :)

    Okedokes will have a play. We do need to balance demands of hd monitors verses mobile devices though. Also increasing the display size puts more drain on the server. I might not be around for Bolton but will have a look at the next match I'm able.

    My fault, I offered to open it up from my phone but completely forgot!

    Don't worry, I've given myself a yellow card forum warning.

    It was compounded by the BBC test commentary intermittently not working.
