    Thanks for your first impressions of the site Catherine. Of course, it's underpopulated because it is still in beta testing and not live yet. Only a select number of our special members have been invited over to help with testing and to give their views on this site. I was hoping to make it live before Crimbo but that didn't happen so my best estimate now is that it will be live in the next week or two. Perhaps I'll make it my New Year's resolution.

    The chat room is pretty basic and we have plans to change it already. However, you missed the Who's Online thingy on the home page and this one works in real time (well give or take 30 seconds). There's such a lot of data on the home page though, that it's not surprising you didn't see it in the left hand column.

    I think we need to cut down on the amount of stuff on that page. It's just too much.

    Hug, Katie x

  • It's fresh, and different. It deals with a lot of the same issues as the old site, but in a new way. It is underpopulated though. The blogs, forums etc are very short of material at present. I wonder when the rest of the membership is coming over?

    Some comments on the chat feature. Clicking on Chat on the top menu takes you straight into the chatroom. What if all you want to do is find out how many people are there (and ideally who they are?). Also once you're in, there doesn't seem to be an exit button, unless I've missed it.

    Another feature I'd like to see one day is Who's Online Now. It was there on the old site, but never seemed to be up to date.

    Anyway congratulations to Katie on getting the new site up and running.

    There is no piccie approval just yet, but there will be as soon as we can afford to pay the developer to write it for us.

    And yes, it will be much better when we get the rest of our data and members migrated across.

    Hugs, Katie x

  • Who's doing piccie approval now? everything looks good to me, looking a bit bare at the moment, but sure it will look realy busy when everything is moved over and we can settle in properly

  • It's going to be a wonderful site, truly comprehensive and easy to navigate. The bug that bothers me is how a member's info comes up when you linger over their name. It's a good feature, but it seems to be difficult to get rid of the pop up.

    Yes, we're hoping to move the blogs, albums, forums and articles across, along with profile and buddy lists.

    It's going to be a huge job!

  • It's looking good to me, still plenty of glitches to iron out I'm sure!


    Do we know if blogs/albums/forums will be moved across from the old site?

    I think it's just a different font. You can make it bigger though, if you think it's difficult to read.


    If you have a fairly recent browser you need only hold down the CRTL key and press the + key. Each time you hit + you will zoom in a bit making the text larger.  To zoom out hold down the CTRL key and hit the minus key (-).

    Hope that helps. Hugs Katie x

  • Does anyone else find that the Beta site text is less defined/sharp text than GS or other sites?

    Generally site looks good - Facebook type sites seem to be abounding and many people find them easy to use. Initial opinion - looking good!

    I like it for the same reason Nikki says.
    It will take some getting use to after the other site But it's pretty easy to get around this one.

  • Hi Nikki, it's going to take a bit of getting used to, but so far my impressions are very favorable. Didn't realize how much the old site needed an update til I saw the new one...

  • For those of us that are in on this secret........what do we think of the site?

     

    Personally I already like the 'facebook' style messaging to just leave a one liner instead of always creating a new forum post.
