It may not look like much from where you are sitting but I have been working on it off and on since February.
Thanks to lawyers and hackers it had to be done.
I do not expect anyone to have trouble but I am sure someone will.

    Was there always a "Home" button. All kinds of cool stuff when you click that one. Nice touch. ;-) All looks great and so far so good on the iPhone.

    This pains me as an old guy who hates change but I really like it! Nice work!
    Stir vigorously then leave!

    @Horton -- I figured something happened when it looked all weird on my iPhone last night. Not sure how to work with it on that. Looks nice on my monitor.

    Thanks guys. It was really really hairy doing this all myself. It is really a whole new site and new software but with the old data.

    @Wish yes all that stuff was there before but it was hard to find. I am still not done reorganizing some of it and fixing some stuff. As an example the link to the Google Earth is broken.

    @Horton I was kidding on the home screen botton. It does look good on comp screen! Print got more spread out in the Forum section so print becomes super tiny on IPhone. Not a huge deal. Just a lot more swipe moving and pinch to zoom. Thanks for your hard work.

    @Horton So sorry to post this and spoil the perfect upgrade... I found one bug/concern. Try to edit and existing forum post (one created before the new software). The system gave me a message "no longer exists" error and I could not save the changes. I had to hit the cancel button and all was back the way it was before attempting the change, so no changes...

    @Horton Here's the correct error message text: "Failed to find discussion for commenting."

    It also appeared when editing a brand new post, just submitted today...

    I am sure there are going to be some bugs. Mobile is no where near done. I am sure that some link refs are going to be broken. It will all be better in time as we are now on current software. If nothing else I am more sure hackers can not crack the site like they did last year. Was that last year?

    @Horton - Looks good! Clean and polished. Like the gray background with ball of spray on it!
  • HortonHorton Posts: 26,203 Administrator
    @Shoot1123 That background is going to change with my mood

    @Horton, I see videos of you with Ball of Spray apparel and stickers. I was wondering where I might be able to find some?

  • tfriesstfriess Posts: 401 Baller

  • HortonHorton Posts: 26,203 Administrator

    I'm a new guy here but a lot of the site doesn't seem to render correctly. Some buttons don't work etc.. I use osx with firefox and linux with firefox.
