Why The Change In The Site Graphics?

Recommended Posts

Admins,

Why the dramatic change in the site graphics today? Maybe it's just me but the site now loads and navigates much slower, the screens are more cumbersome to find my way around in, and some of the font appears too light or faint to read very well. I'm all for improvements, but I'm not sure these are truly improvements at this point....

hi

The site is loading slow because the server is doing rebuilds. In order to keep site down to a minimum we have repopned it while we are still working on the website.

Please list what parts of the text you are having problems with and we'll take a look.

We have to upgrade to keep the site software up to date, the forum software has now been launched to version 3. The older version will soon be unsupported, therefor making the site insecure as there will no longer be any updates for version 2.

The site will speed up once the server has completed the tasks.

I guess the server is done doing what it needed to since it's plenty fast on my computer.

Within a few days you'll find puttering around the new site just as easy as the old site...

Is there a way to change the skin? The light blue on white is very hard to read in a lighted area.

My biggest problem remains the greyscale font. Any words appearing in light grey are almost impossible to read on my monitor. Lose the greyscale and show all font in basic black, please....

I dont like the new look, I enjoyed the old site format more, because I could see new postings immediately and even if the posting was not in my forum I could contribute if I found it interesting....This format reminds me of if you speak english press 1, and etc. Sorry Steve just my two cents. I also find it too cumbersome to read post, you have to select each post...sucks big time. It was so much easier to scroll with the mouse on the old site.
