Wow!!!! I spend some days off and when I get back the house is upside down !! :)
I´m kind of lost in the new site, but it is quite pretty. I like it !!
(maybe I should change my avatar too... )

Congratulations!

... Is there a manual anywhere? :D

I'd find it hard to believe the new A.org will have as much of an appealing "feel" or look to it as the old, but it *is* getting better every day. Fonts are too small (as per the obligatory IBM way) and options/functions are not yet in logical or intuitive places. Would like to see a large FORUMS section up toward the top. Something so important should not be hidden from plain site, in a tiny font, on the left hand side of the screen, under the 'privacy policy'. Sure, someone could get used to anything, but...

Never noticed how nice Amigaworld.net looks until now - especially on my A2500  :-)  

Ahem... the calendar is cute! Is there going to be birth dates and anniversaries of important Amiga people and goings on we can click on?  lol

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.

Fair enough Wayne..I agree with that! thanks for all the hard work bud :-)..(insert cheers little icon here)

I must say, it's growing on to me too...
To me, this is nothing short of evolution!

Being invited to one of those new "social groups" really forced me to start
tinkering around the website, posting and upoading...
There are so many subtle things that I like, like the quick "adressfield"-style links
which takes up virtually no space;

..and the albums with a cover-thumbnail, sweet!
Great work guys!!!

I have one suggestion about the bulletin board.

I don't know what the other people thinks but for me the title parts of the forum post (user information part) are wasting too much space. (I'm displaying the board with 1440x900 wide screen)

I think, instead of putting that information on the top of the message we may place it on the left side as the old board. It would be more compact and easy to follow.

That's entirely possible as I have seen it done on other Vb sites but it is a feature of the theme.

Hacking the theme is probably not too high on the To DO list.

Maybe Wayne will look into it once more pressing issues are out of the way.

The more I look at this site, the more I like it. Great job. But please, add an option to choose between "avatar and user info in a row" and "avatar and user info in a little left column", because I always found the first one (that's the current unique choice) very annoying when reading messages one after the other. Thank you! =)

I'm not sure if you know this but you can add events to the calender as a registered user. Click on the calendar tab and look at the bottom righ hand side of the page where it says "Add Event"

So if you want to add Jay Miner's birthday for example, you can go ahead and do it. ;)

Magic Spells and Monsters, Incredible playability and lastability,

@save2600

.... again, another case where you haven't bothered to read anything that's been posted previously.

"forums" bar. -- working on it.

"Avatar on left -- working on it.

"side bar order" -- working on it.

"calendar" -- anyone can add any event they like.  Even Jay Miner's birthday should you choose to do so.

Anything else you want to bitch and whine about which is already long since being addressed?

I must admit I don't particularly like the new site either!  Just MHO.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but short of "make it what it was" -- which everyone will just have to get over -- how exactly could we make it better, or what exactly bothers you?

See, that's the thing I don't think people get.  It's not enough to bitch and say "I don't like it" without trying to constructively offer a way to fix it.  All I ask is that you read what's already been posted for the to do list before repeating the same thing that's already been said.
