    Updated update

    Ok - we've made quite a few changes which have addressed a lot of the comments people have made.

    Can you please have another look and see what you think? Constructive comments welcomed. :) http://thevbninja.com/dntrade/content.php

    (And the SuperMario video is not staying!)

    These are some of the changes made:

    • Font's changed to Arial; link colours changed
    • Better spacing between articles
    • One of the twin ads removed on "front page" - will put motto / slogan there instead.
    • Some of the lower articles have been "boxed" - personally I don't like that look, and will probably revert to free flowing.
    • Social Networking icons made more prominent

    We've decided to keep DNT running as is for now - and we're going to put this new version up on another URL. We'll then trial
    the new one in real time until we've got it absolutely right - this way we won't disrupt anyone.


    Cheers, Ned

    Looks good Ned!

    I'm with you on not being a fan of the boxed articles.

    Looks great!!

    Some minor suggestions are:
    1. Making the rotating slides the same length as the two article boxes below. (longer on each side.) so its a bit more free flowing as oppose to being centred

    2. Having the latest thread tab on top. Because you already have articles below anyway. Regardless of all these new features (which are great!), I think the best and most powerful part is the forum. So you should really push that.

    Anyway, thats my two cents.

    Can I please ask a favour?

    I'm looking for a few guinea pigs please. :)

    Got the new site up and running at www.dntrader.com.au - and whilst it doesn't have proper content on it yet, I do want to test it for bugs.

    So could I please ask some of you (if you have 2 spare minutes) to sign up and let me know if you encounter any issues? Or any other feedback.

    Even do a sample post if you like. See how that performs.

    And if you do have any further design comments, always happy to hear them.

    Many thanks, Ned
