It looks great, and it will be fun exploring and finding out where all the things we are used to have moved......just like a game drive looking for new things!

Looking good team!!!! :clap:

Of course it will take us all a while to get used to the new look, and find our way around the new site, but I am very technaphobic, and already I feel at home.

There will be plenty of help for us, if we get in a pickle. :whistle:

Loving how it works on my phone................no more scrolling left, right, up and down.............what a pleasure!!!!

Exciting times. :dance: :dance: :dance:

Thanks Val :thumbs_up: For a moment I felt as if someone has changed the lock at my front door. I knew I was at the right place but didn't know how to get in. :D

Well this has been a lot of work. I can see that.

Like anything in life, it takes time to adjust. So far, I like what I see. 8) I do understand where Hugh is coming from. I was very fond of the old site.

My eyes are not the greatest anymore. I appreciate that fact that many important headings are clear and in bold lettering.

Will give more feedback once I have done a tour.

To the team... :gflower: Thank you for all the hard work.

My first thought was " :? :? why do people mess with something that works??" but I actually really like the new look, and with time the new navigation will become familliar.
great job!
