I had a shortcut pinned to my task bar that I had to delete, and then create a new one because the link was different for some reason. This is on a windows 10 computer, my cell phone had zero issues.

If this is the new look of the website all I can say is that I miss the old one. :(

My shortcut works fine on my Win 10. You running Chrome? I am.

We have had a few comments on the colour scheme, we can change it. Right now we want to make sure it functions properly and then we can address jazzing things up. What colour scheme would most want to see?

I feel contrast is more important than actual color used...for example, there is not much color indicating the difference between Peter's quoted post, and my new one entered here.

Most forums will allow you to custom choose between a few layouts and a few different color schemes so each person can decide his own look from a few choices.

A nice Excal banner at top would be nice...or maybe even a monthly or bi-monthly photo challenge between users' submitted pictures and voted on, to get to be the banner for a month.

It is always difficult to deal with change..But I already see a few things that are improved. Like the actual hot links guys can now share.

An image hosting and personal album option would sure be nice touch.. Please make this happen for members!!. I see the sight is all set-up for this option. This way we shouldn't end up with sooo many dead pictures littering the forum! :wink:

Hi Peter. I'm not a computer guy at all so with the exception of spam and troll bombings I thought the original site was great. If you'd like opinions, I'd like to see the forum as it was....so to speak. Color was great and I really liked the format. I'd like to see the forum member name in bold attached to each thread. That's my two bits and thank you guys for all your work with the forum.
