    What a surprise this morning! It's an excellent new design. And what a thoughtful thing to have dr. Bob's quote in the header.

    The site seems a little slower to respond, though, or it must be the early Sunday internet traffic jam...

    Looks good... Is that a new APUG logo or am I hallucinating (again)?

    Been browsing for a while and only found one small bug-ette The "Last six hours posts" option on the Member Links menu leaves out the left hand column when it refreshes the page...

    Cheers, Bob.

    yup new logo courtesy of our own blaze-on, he was a HUGE help with the logo and will have to thank him properly in a seperate thread. Site seems fairly quick for me. There is definitely a bug with the left side bar not showing on some search results pages, just looking into it now..

    Sean you are spoiling us. Being a software developer I can certainly appreciate the effort in maintaining and upgrading a site of this size. Kudos and thanks, well done

    wow! nice changes to the site sean ...

    2 quick question though - the gallery + chatroom links no longer shows up on the "bar"
    (home - community - sponser &C ) ... is there another way to get there?
    i sort of remembered that i could just type "gallery" or "chat" after " forums/'xxxx' " ...

    though there might be a "hot link" that i just don't see this early in the morning ... (maybe it's my mac ? >>> safari or camino ? )

    as always -
    much thanks!

    -john

    Looks real good Sean. I would like to throw out a couple of suggestions.

    If not already planned, fill the remaining "white space" on the left of the current posting list below the recent articles list. It's a little thing but all that white space is visually annoying.

    I think you need to have a spot on the front page that says something to the effect "Benefits of subscribing listed here" or "5 Reaons to Subscribe to APUG"
    then link off of that the the subscriber page. This will do two things. First, most new time users will go to the page if it is prominently displayed just to read it. Second, once those reasons are in their mind, they are more apt to subscribe, especially when they are reminded every time they come to the site with that flag on the home page.

    I know you don't want to hit people over the head with the subscription thing but I think it needs better displayed to remind new visitors and non-subscribing members about that option.
