Hi,
Sorry but at the moment I am not liking this.
Too ''busy'' and hard to negotiate, font too small.

Closed for updates.....you weren't kidding. :D ;D ;D

Take a few minutes to get used to the new layout, and no doubt there'll be some grumbles........from the site and members. ::)

Looks great, so now for a scratch around. ;) :)

Happy Chrimbo all. :)

I like it - thanks, Trystan and Sarah, I'm guessing it was a marathon effort :) ...

Just one thing; - ... the "embarrassed" emoticon isn't appearing.  On my screen, there's a rectangular box, landscape and quite wide, with a little picture in it, and the picture has a strike-through.  Might just be my computer, though?

Oh, ... and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Font and colours are OK for me. It does seems quite 'busy', but site looks more professional. There is only one thing I don't like so far.

A bit of a shock to the system right now - feel as if someone has stolen my favourite old jumper and given me a brand new one which is uncomfortable and itchy!!

Guess I'll get used to it in time.

I've now made the Fonts a bit bigger now (press function key F5 to reload).
