Now you see, that was not a nice post.
Nice posts are good.
Nice Avatars are good, yours not so much,

Not really. I am calling out nonsense when I see it.

I'm going to assume that all this stuff is easy for you, and that you simply are impatient with those of us, well like me, undercover as the village idiot, a part meant for me BTW, comes natural.


You've not just relaunched a new site. In fact, you are the end user, and if you are finding it good, or bad, that's great and your reaction. If it's taking you time to get used to it, that's bad, but at least you are expressing that. If you find it great and easy to use, that's a good data point too.

So, it's not about you, at all.

So you get a pass.
Never mind.


I do? Great!

Oh come on. I looked at the site for less than ten minutes and found bugs. What was your test plan? Did you have independent QA? How did you push the site toba staging server? Did you use any automation? Did you prove coverage of functionality with a test matrix? Did you have defect tracking?

In short, did you get a professional QA to work on this, or did you have a developer mark their own home work?

It is possible to test every single functional area... even if you will inevitably miss some items. Given your propensity to use txtspk, I would guess you took short cuts.



+1. And, the quality of this launch makes me much less likely to follow the casino related advice of this site's owners. If these simple things were missed here, what's been missed there & why would I risk my money to find out?

Touché
And yes the quoting doesn't look as good.
And since you seem experienced in this stuff, perhaps you could advise me on how to do that split quote thing, or multiple quote thing. Or direct me to where it has already been explained?

Still not a nice Avatar for a PG site.

You have a nice day now.. 2F

Blue copy on red sounds awful, but might work.
I hate reading Outside Magazine when the colors and backgrounds are weird.
My eyesight is not very good anymore.

It was an attempt at tiny humor, I'd prefer staring directly into the sun rather than mix red and blue. It amazes how some websites can be so poorly constructed.

I am using Firefox.

When I click on a topic and it opens everything is fine until I scroll down. The Recommended Online Casino box on the right hand side, jumps to the left covering the forum posts.

Am I the only one having this problem?

My point is, you should have consulted someone before hand. This stuff isn't hard, it isn't expensive, and it's been written about enough



thanks for the enlightenment

Yeah. Good point.
