Aaaarrrrgggh!!!! My eyes, my eyes......... The new logo has now migrated from the CW website and infected the forum! Looks like I'll have to stop visiting this place now.

At least there isn't a date window on the right hand side... :)

Actually it looks pretty good, a freshen up without major surgery to the layout so we who have difficulty adapting to new things can still find stuff. I've even located the link to the CW website so all is good. A well executed & speedy transition :thumbup: - you should go and work for..... :silent:

I'm relieved. It still the same forum software, I think, and everything's more or less in the same place.

Fortunately the transition went smoothly and swiftly.

Still a few niggles and a couple things we somehow missed, but overall I am pleased. Let me know if you spot anything.

I didn't even notice it was down!

One thing that is still unchanged though is that a Sales Corner is still missing from Tapatalk. I was hoping the upgrade may have fixed that.

Actually Kip, a thought has just occurred to me as I was writing that sentence. As we know sales corner is restricted until you reach a very modest 30 posts. Going back a bit, sales corner used to be visible to all Tapatalk users, regardless of post count. Was something changed a couple of months back to prevent that? I'm wondering whether such a change may have (as a by product) stopped it picking up the post count altogether for members accessing the forum via Tapatalk?

Mine is still blue, I guess it might depend on the colour temperature balance on your monitor, mine is set to 9300K

Greetings,

I have had an initial browse and wander around, it looks good, fresher and everything I have tried has worked.

To Kip and everyone else involved, many thanks for your work.

Much appreciated.

Thanks Kip. It looks good to me - a slight change, with a couple of improvements and I like the idea of the Portal page.

Thanks also to any others who were involved in the process.

Nice clean modern look and on my laptop, better use of space as there's more on-screen text. Font looks a little clearer and larger too. I like it :thumbup:
