the font for the links on the left suck.... they are too hard to read they need to be darker, not light blue. but thats just my .02 cents.

Yup only the person who creates a new thread. There is an icon like a bar graph

I don't like the extra white space on the sides being bright white (hurts the eyes). It was better before when it was a light gray.

Hmm. Not so much. Although having all the smileys right up top there is handy. :) I'm a stodgy old fart though and don't like the way any website changes, so I suppose I'll get used to it.

It's weird man!

And definitely speculator.

And the polling feature is way hip. Gonna have to see how to work it.

Allright, I could get used to this. It grows on you.

When is this going live? Or is it? I still get the Joomla login telling me I can come here. Just shows an ip address and doesn't even have a standard domain name.
It really doesn't matter as this does work fine for me.

It seems to be live. The old link (mine was bookmarked/saved in favorites) still takes you to the maintenance page, but this is a new URL. If you get on through the main website, bookmark the new link and you're back in business.

The response time on my Blackberry Curve may be somewhat improved. At a minimum, the amount I must scroll down to start seeing the messages is less. Thanks!

But the buttons ("reply", etc.) don't seem to work consistently. I see "reply" and "quote" buttons on my PC, but not on my Blackberry. I do get pop-up hints on the Blackberry that tell me where the buttons are, and these include additional buttons that I can't see on my PC. Don't worry, I know it's still a work in progress.

I just realized something about the New Look; The "Beer Quotes" at the top of the page are different every time. This compels me to use the up arrow if I'm toward the bottom of the page so I can read the new quote. This, then, screws up my browser's back button and I get lost as to where I'm trying to go.

This getting lost thing is something I guess I'm going to have to learn to deal with as I get older.

I think this is still a temporary site, if not where can I access my pm's, someone sent me some info I need & I can't find them.

In another post, somebody from Mr Beer stated that the old PMs were not migrated.

The new look and layout looks pretty cool on my pc I like the way it displays. I'm waiting for the DNS changes to kick in so I can try it out on my Android, hopefully the new site is smartphone ready too.

This one seems kind of plain. But as long as it works that is all that matters.

I like some of the upgrades that have been mentioned already.

Two suggestions for improvement:

1) As others have mentioned, it's a bit "bright". An off-white/cream background might be better.

2) There's lots of dead space in the margins. Posts are crowded in the middle-right of the page, with huge white margins. Seems like the usable portion of the page could be widened a bit in both directions.

Overall, a thumbs-up.

I second this motion.

While the white space dont bother me, It seems the left margin could be shrunk some and the message board could be stretched farther right utilizing most screen area creating shorter height of an overall thread.

Its a small "critiscizm" but nonetheless a constructive one.

I'm figuring it out more now everyday. I don't mind the way the new PM works and it's up where you will notice it. I still haven't found the preview. I hope posting pic and links will be easy, haven't tried it yet, just got the old way figured out good.

Maybe the person who registered the domain is gone and they're having trouble getting it transferred.

Lots better now that the background is something besides white.

If they have a job opening for webmaster, I'd be glad to accept it, they could pay in extract. :laugh:

It took me awhile to get here since the under construction screen still is up. I wanted to give them some time to get it all up and working. I finally clicked on the preview link on the under construction screen just to see what it might look like. It looks like its been here all the time.

I don't have any problem with the new format, but I apparently missed some different borders around the posts. The one right now is a pale green and I don't find it offensive.

There are issues using Google Chrome when trying to edit your signature. The container box is only 1/2 the size as opposed to using Internet Explorer. I can edit my profile but it is a pain. I'm probably in the minority though using Chrome.
