    Have been trying the new system out for the last ten minutes.

    Pretty slick !

    Getting "You do not have permission to do this" notices on some of the options but guess that all this will clear once everything has been finalised.

    Well done to all concerned !

    I must say that was the very first thought that passed through my mind. I loves the green scheme! It's very cosy and home-like for me. Perhaps a bit old fashioned, but don't we love that here. Von Poop, I think you are quite right in thoughts about perpetuating a look and feel for the place. That's my subtle way of saying don't change it too much ...

    Having had a quick look at the competition, I certainly prefer the robust fonts of our index pages to theirs, the latter look a bit washed out.

    Well, it was all very well looking at a test site in the week, but this evening over on WW2F with real people to play with has confirmed for me that this will be a far better system than VB.

    PMs, VMs, Notifications, Attachments - all better, by far.
    Youtube videos auto-recognised by a single paste of the URL rather than our weird system.
    Etc.

    Otto's still tweaking (and on an admin learning curve that I'm now rather looking forward to tackling myself), but I reckon this will be something of a leap forward once both sites are set up as they need to be.


    (Even Owen likes it. Imagine that!)

    There will a lot of layout tweaks as I edit the site.
    It will take a while, but we will have a lot more functionality in our layout once we get everything enabled. Cool?

    I thought I'd gone to the GWF for a minute! Same format and one that I like very much. Personally speaking if WW2Talk looks like that I will be very happy.

    It's all much easier if you go directly here and see the newness yourself: WW2 Forums

    All the Main and Sub menu's easily accessible without having to search for that Forum Jump at the bottom right of the page, or should I say 'some' of the pages.
    An easy to navigate site, I will be at home here in no time. Great work!

    Shocking work load to migrate though - eh? We are seeing only a tiny fraction of it.
    I am certain of that! Core Blimey if it all bollux's up. ...

    I've got my eye on you, Rodinu.
    Beady it is.

    Best I can say is that it'll happen when it happens.
    But it will happen.
