If you received an email suggesting you take a look at a new format of VB, please go ahead and play and send feedback. If you didn't, don't worry or think you've been left out. It will be available to everyone soon.

She's with the company whose software we're using.

The new site should be available to everyone soon, hopefully within the next week or two. Selected members have been asked to provide feedback and work out bugs on a test version of the site.

The downtime was not related. Someone was using our server to send spam, we weren't able to get it resolved quickly enough, and our host pulled the plug on our server.

I had a chance to review the site. The colors are pale/faded/whitewashed. Kind of a Windows 7 default color scheme, which I really dislike.

There isn't any option for the user to change the colors, and I was told there won't be any time soon.

Also, the template seems out of place with the regular forum format. Sort of like putting drawings on top of a photograph. A "layered" look...

And finally, the font style used in some areas of the site is "thin" and hard to read, especially with the white washed background. Kind of reminds me of an old fashioned typewriter, and what the letters would look like when the ink on the ribbon was starting to dry up.

Happiness is not the result of a mathematical equation comparing the good times and bad times someone has had. It is a state of mind.

Could the change be optional? Because the current look, especially with the purple grape setting, is top hole.

The change won't be optional, it's a completely different software, not just a different style. For the most part feedback so far has been positive. I think most people will really like it once they've had a chance to use it a bit.

Hopefully it isn't supposed to be secret. Nobody has said we can't post a screenshot.

When you go to the drop down menu, for "Forums", the option for focus forums is too big. all you can see is a load of recipe types, and cant see food discussion etc. Im on Firefox whatever the newest version is btw

Ill have to play a bit more before I decide whether I like it or not though! Change is scary

Yeah, it's the same way with the "local" forums. We're going to work on finding a way to display them that isn't so obnoxious.

looks nice and colorful. I just hope there's something that mimics the "what's new?" page where you can see the most recently posted in threads.
