looking good so far.

If i may be so bold, could do with some easy navigation buttons to get to the messages home page, or its just my bumbling thats making it harder.

best wishes.

Love the new layout layout, Alex.  It's great and easy to find what your after.  The new messaging and comment features are a really and asset, especially with all the layout options (which I haven't tried yet).

I'm also glad you went back to the more conventional ad system rather than the initial spash screen.

Great job to the entire team who put this together!

Feedback / Bugs Section?

Is there a "feedback" page or something to post bugs and suggestions?  I don't want to post those types of things as comments and waste space....

An Easier to Read Layout.

Alex,  I agree with all of the posts below.  The new layout is much cleaner and makes reading the content easier on the eye.  I also like the new menu links which seem to streamline the navigation process of the site as well.

I look forward to contributing where I can!

Crap design
K.I.S.S.   6/23/2011 7:07:58 PM
At the risk of being castigated by several sections of the design community, why do we still have cans of corned beef that need a key to open them....? I'ts not like it's a new development in the marketplace.... the original tin was developed for Napoleons army - and was made out of Lead.... It was only about 10 years later that the can opener was invented. And yet 150 years later, we still have to insert a little snap off key into a tab, and wind it around the circumference of the recepticle..... is this a purely European and African thing, or is it also applicable to the U.S.?
