Well, I think this is my second post on this new site?

1) Yes, I don't like all the new changes either. But, in prioritized order:
    A: Avatars have been moved.
    B: Gallery will be resurrected.
2) So, I think we need to wait. And in time:
    A: Topic titles will in time not be abrivated any more.
    B: Extreanous air and space, dividers and lines will be stripped. "Moore google like".
    C: News section on the front page again.
3) A PayPal donation/fund raiser to send Wane on a vaccation to the Carribien.

But for now, yes it's allowed to quietly hate or "out-of-the-box-love" the new site. But I believe that we should give it time. It'll all be good given some time. Allow the real cries of dismay and hate ring when the beta badge is gone. Meanwhile critize constructivly and make helpfull suggestions.

But posting on other sites that a.org is dead, or that you don't like the new look. And be quite here. Now thats a huge no-no. This is the place to say what needs changeing. And do it nicely. Remember that this is a free service to us. The community.
A posting a day keeps the sanity away...

I am with Easy John here, the site has looked alot better in the past.

the stuff i like the least is the awfull standard stuff (in today's forums):

and so on, yes its screen filler and useless, atleast for normal use, theese things should be when you go and look on the user's account.


And yes, i dislike how its really annoying to use with Ibrowse (this site) but then again , i have OWB so i will use that for now.

Can we atleast get back the orginal design ..i mean, top banner logo etc?

other than that, i like the site and the info on it as always and ofcourse the people, so here is a hint, keep it up guys and make the site awesome again.

PPS: i didnt like the last big change on amiga.org either but after a while the site was frequently updating to look better and more functionality/useage so i know you guys can do it for third time in a row :)



EDIT: i just noticed that all that:

Hi,
 Dont know if this has been suggested (didnt have time to read all the posts as i have to run) but it would be great to have a Gallery tab at the top of the screen where the other tabs are, you know, Home, Forums, User CP, FAQ, ect ect. Gallery would be very welcomed sitting along the others up there i think.

See the to do list.  The gallery isn't finished yet, hence no link.  Rest assured, it'll get there pretty soon.

Any other good ideas go there please.

No.  As I've explained many, many, many times now, I (in no particular order)

1) Don't have the original graphics to work with, and, no, you can't just "put what was up there back" because each menu choice is now different

2) This is a different package.  It works differently and is therefore not as easy to make look as horrible as I consider that 8 year old design.  There is a reason that people rip out old wall paper ya know.. :)

3) I personally got sick of looking at the old design and wanted something newer and fresher.  Granted, the header needs work, but if you'll check, you'll see it's on the to do list.

Please send all future good ideas there.. :)

Yep.  Last time, Amiga.org was the first and only Amiga site to use Xoops.  You guys HATED it (I wish I still had the messages from back then).  After you guys got used to it, EVERY successor site (AW, then Amigans, then whoever was in between that) ran out and got their own free Xoops package and you guys (and the online community) fell into complacency.

Now 8 years later (10 since we started using Xoops), it's time for the next dramatic "what's next" moment and sure enough, give it six months and give us time to get the news/images/links back online, and you won't even remember "what was"..

You don't remember the yellow Amiga.org days do you???

See??  :)

Unfortunately that's an OWB and/or IB issue.  I'm sure if you asked the author, he could probably fix it on that end much easier than I could break the code to work with the broken browser.

Other than the single green dot indicating that you are "on the right path" or something... how can you tell how many rep points you have? I don't seem to see that listed anywhere. :huh:
look in your CP

next to the list of recent reps ("Latest Reputation Received") is the current number

Yup, and as a habitual lurker I have to say I actually quite like the new layout so far, it is missing some functionality yet that was in the old site (or atleast it is not linked to at the front of the front page anymore) but major site upgrades can be that kind of pain.

Hmmm... I can't see a list of recent reps in my CP, but then again, maybe I need reps to be able to see them?

Well, for a little while there I was struggling to like the new format, but now that the avatars have moved over to the left, I'm pretty happy now! Well done Wayne and all the other guys helping out with this, I run a couple of bulletin boards (nothing at all Amiga-related) and I know how much work is involved. When it's finished, I'm sure people will settle down and you'll be able to relax and enjoy your work :-)

@Wayne
Yeah.. this all feels like a deja vu from last upgrades and major changes. There is always someone who will get upset, but a month or two later it is all forgotten about.
