I see it says 'beta' in the logo. Is this a joke or something?

No one, including apparently you, was bothering to read the continual "we're working on things" explanations that I spent about 8 hours total posting in the forums, so it makes sense.

Shows you're working hard though; the place has gone from looking pretty default to shaping up just like the good old a.org

mm, it looks ok, but a little too much "white space".

But then, I'm using IBrowse so maybe it's missing the CSS page layout? I haven't checked on the PC yet.

One little annoying thing; I had to click on the submit button underneath the Quick Reply box, which brought up the page "The following errors occurred with your submission:

The message you have entered is too short. Please lengthen your message to at least 10 characters." before I could post a reply. The normal reply buttons didn't work, just leaving a ghosted reply box.
Hope that helps.

Putting a big 'beta' logo up really makes any website look stupid. I never said I didn't read any of the posts.

I wish the latest posts were on the front page by default. And I do like new appearance. It is fresh.


Exactly what I was thinking, also I am not too keen on the retro C64 lettering in the banner

I agree.  The C64 lettering is lame.  People who like that horrible blocky font are the same people who think the Amiga died in the 1980s and never upgraded.  In reality my AmikitOS looks much better than my WindowsXP OS. So let Amiga.org use a normal font.

How you reached that conclusion is beyond me.

I just like it because it is cool. It's a design thing. A bit like Marmite. You either love it or hate it. :p

Ahem, topaz is the de facto Amiga font, lovingly written into every Kickstart. How can you not appreciate that?

Plus, what the heck is "AmiKitOS" ? Last time I checked it was simply called AmiKit. Not to denigrate the considerable work put into polishing it, but I think you'll find it's vanilla AmigaOS 3.9 with a wide variety of patches and AROS backports.

I think the logo looks great. I also have in my posession 3 expanded A1200's, all of which have at least a 68040 processor. Two towers, one with a BlizzardPPC/BVisionPPC with 256MB of 60ns RAM, the other Apollo1240/Mediator/Voodo3000. Then there's an 800MHz G4 based A1.

In what sense is that "never upgraded" ?

I'll gladly grant you that, save for the fact that the old site had about 1/10th the feature set of this one.

Just like the Amiga itself, can't make it better without it getting more complicated.  No matter how hard you try.
