Happy Anniversary to the LCB Network, Mr. Chan, Zuga and the entire LCB staff. Though I don't know the exact date of the sale, it was announced one year ago today. This thread was also started on that day. You received a tepid welcome from the naysayers back then and always handled it in a dignified manner. Here it is a year later. The sky is not falling, no one got their information stolen and we're still posting. Life is good. Congratulations and continued success.



thanks 1BB :)

yeah the last year went by so fast and a lot of things hppened in the mean time, including the new upgraded WoV look.

we knew some membership would be against the sale and us the new owners as well as the new design. And i totally get it.. when you are passionate about something, or simply used to things and comfort zone that goes with it..

Some ppl don't like changes but we had to do what we thought was best for the site and what was obviously based on our business model. At the same time the goal was to keep the structure of the WoV and Woo and not change what was already a success.

And reflecting on the past year I think we did a god job in joining what some thought were two different worlds.
sure we did lose some long standing members that disliked the change, but hey i think its their loss.

anyways we will keep on improving things and at the same time we will always be open to feedback from you guys.

cheers
Zuga

One way to improve things is to have a website for phones and mobile applications and another website for desktops and traditional screens.

Hi Zuga,

I'm one of the people who in the beginning didn't like the format change to this website. But I became comfortable with it in short order.

Since you mentioned in your post that you're open to feedback it would be nice if one could use thumb and forefinger to enlarge content. This would make it easier to edit posts on an iPhone which I use. It would also make it easier if one is trying to go to a certain page in a thread as the page number is so small.

But my main reason for this post to congratulate you on this one-year anniversary.
I only know you through some of the posts you have made which I have read and you've made a favorable impression.

That's what I meant to say, an hour or two ago when I thought about what to say.
GJ got it just right for me.
How in the hell did you manage to keep me from being able to expand my view on an IPad anyway ;-)

I don't have an iPhone, so I don't know the details, but I'm able to use touch-pad sizing on this site with my laptop, Android tablet, and Android smartphone. Are you sure it's the site?

I don't have a Samsung anything, perhaps I should...
I usually access this site thru my IPad, sitting on my butt on one of my couches.
And I cannot 'expand the view' as GJ explained.
GJ is one of my 'heroes', and I don't have many.

First of all, definite congratulations to all involved!!!

Obviously, I had my concerns when the new ownership was announced, but I kept those to myself given that I am essentially one of the site's representatives. Inwardly, though, I did remain optimistic about what the site could become while keeping those portions that already worked well, and I'd say the ownership team has far exceeded even what I had hoped for. They're also terrific people to work for as both an Admin and a content writer.

I will say that I have a Nexus 5 or 6, whatever the second to most recent one is, and cannot drag expand.

Okay, I have Android based mobile devices coming out the wazoo, so this discussion gave me an excuse to reach into that wazoo to try the pinchy zoomy thing. Tried my beloved Google Nexus version of the Samsung S4 cell phone, navigated here, and trying to resize the page was a no-go. Then dusted off my clunky Samsung Galaxy Tab3, and also nothing doing. Then on the spiffy Google Nexus 7 tablet, again the size of this page also just is what it is and the view could not be changed. And now with that little bit of mild exercise out of the way, the Galaxy can go back to the bottom of the wazoo for another six months.

Unfortunately thats a no go. We opted for the responsive design instead of having a mobile app.

First off thanks for the kind words. As to your question, We are currently looking into introducing the ability to enlarge the content. I dont have the ETA, as we need to do some testing. But stay tuned .


cheers
