While i *begin* to like this site (again) while using my sam and OWB I'm still not happy with a "quick browse" to amiga.org using my trusty OS3.9 systems. The fully fledged version is known to be creativly "reconstructed" by AWeb, IBrowse and Voyager and the mobile version is ... ahem ... not that sophisticated ;-)
I realize you probably haven't read the hundred or so posts explaining that the site is no longer 100% compatible with the classics, as well as why not, but suffice to say that time has marched on, and the classic Amiga browsers have not.  Don't use a dead, unsupported browser to try and reach a web site then expect it to work.. Go yell at the authors of those browsers and tell them to quit slacking off.  They've had 12 years worth of break, it's time to get back to work.. .. :)

Actually, I stand corrected.  Since I changed "new posts" to "Today's Posts", the CH discussions are showing up there.

Ah, my apologies I didn't know how the site worked...  That seems like a great compromise.

Thanks

You say that, until tomorrow morning when "Today's Posts" show nothing because there haven't been any posts yet...

You guys gotta make up your mind..  :)

You've done a sterling job Wayne, I can't see anything to improve.
Restraining orders are just another way of saying I love you!

Ahhh...

I actually liked having my avatar at the top of the home screen :lol:

Not a big deal but can each user put it back in if they want?

**edit: It's back! Cheers **

Well, no hate here... just one little request, I have no idea why it bothers me.....

On the old Amiga.org , if you held the mouse pointer over the 'Random Pic' you would get a short description of the pic .....  no more :eek: I know, it's nit-picking.. but sometimes I can't tell what that shrunken pic is... :lol:

But beyond that, great job Wayne....

The grey bar at the top with the "Submit News", "User CP" and "Log Out" buttons does not seem consistent with the rest of the UI to me. Personally I preferred it when these links were part of the main links bar directly underneath the logo, in the same style as "Home", "Forums", "Gallery" etc.
Code: [Select]
10  IT\'S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN
20  FOR C = 1 TO 2
30     DA-NA-NAAAA-NAAAA DA-NA-NA-NA-NAAAA
40     DA-NA-NAAAA-NAAAA DA-NA-NA-NA-NA-NA-NAAAAA
50  NEXT C
60  NA-NA-NAAAA
70  NA-NA NA-NA-NA-NA-NAAAA NAAA-NAAAAAAAAAAA
80  GOTO 10

We need Yetisports games for the arcade, especially Yeti Seal Bounce. I don't know if they are they free though.

Also a few others

Hi,

@Wayne

I think that new avatar you have really stinks, but what is worse is that your locality, is Huntsville AL. That is just a stone throw away from Panama City, FL. God how I miss that place. Being stuck up here in Pennsyltucky is the worst. The dumbest redneck down South is smarter than the smartest yankee up North. The teachers up here get paid to much for what they teach, the politicians from the North would be tarred and feathered down south, the judges up in the North are more crooked than the crooks.

I am calling it pick on Wayne day, just because he lives down South where I want to be but can't because my choice is move down South and starve, or keep my job up in the North.

So everyone blast Wayne for anything it is officially blast Wayne day!!

By the way the site looks good, I have no complaints here.

You are right and....errr...not. Of course you (and the Amiga.org web backbone) have reasons to move on, but there *some* people you leave behind. i am rather lucky to own a amiga(-like) system that is capable to make use of the new style and techniques but this is coincidence. this is since some weeks now. before arrival of my sam amiga.org was a dead end for my classic systems which is/was sad, 'cos amiga.org was my first browse of the day beneath amiga-news.de.

I accept that most users surrendered ;-) and browse amiga sites with a windows pc (or aquivalents).

We all -- myself more than most -- understand the loss of potential users, but 12 years after the most current classic browser was released, the number of people who got left behind were far, far outweighed by the advantages offered by the new system.

This, being 2009, is just one of those situations where -- if the authors of those browsers hadn't given up -- it would still be perfectly usable if they hadn't.

I had a choice.  Move forward, or close the site.  I hope I chose well.
