And let's be honest: Isn't this revamp a new time to bring the "Blog" (or at least Articles With Comments) question back for the main site?
It's a nice forum, but it's the six of us. We're the Cheers bar.

Everything is under discussion! Even if it takes us way too long to do anything about it!

*Jaw drops*. Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow!!! :D :shock:


This looks absolutely incredible. So excited to see upcoming stories/articles/features with this new format. Amazing job guys!!! You should all be very proud. :)

(And wow seeing those old logos always brings back memories. Lol. ;) )

Truth be told, the real reason we did this entire revamp is just so we could finally get a new logo! ;)

Lol! ;)


Btw: Best. Background. Ever. Sort of a cream-colored off-white; very crisp and professional but “warm” looking as well. Very soothing effect. :)

Thanks. I wanted our articles to look more like magazine pieces than website posts. In that vein, the background color was chosen to kind of seem like paper. Also helps make the bigger images pop I think.

The calendar page is back up! It's not the new revamped version yet, but so many people have asked about it that I've gone ahead and just put the original version back up for now!

Just wanted to say on the large print reviews...thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!! :) :) I love and have always loved the reviews on “Views”, but the smaller print always made them somewhat challenging to really read/absorb. This is so so so much better, once again, thank you so much!!! :o.
