We want your feedback! New Global Outfit + Forum Update
« on: August 06, 2011, 11:50:50 AM »
We´ve sent Global-Flat to the gym! It got a bit wider so we got it a new outfit as well. Here it is and we hope you like it. It´s work in progress and we´re keen to hear your opinion! Please let us know what you like and what you don´t like. For now only the news page and the Forum have been updated. We´ll update the rest of the site step by step. 

The forum software was updated as well. It looks a bit different now because it´s a completely new version of the software. It´s the biggest update we did so far.
We are really counting on your feedback! Please post ideas and problems in the forum or email us. It´s your community!

Big big thanks to all the people who helped with the design: Andrew Parkin, Cameron Stevens, Chris HallJon MacKinnon, Chris Spann, Matt Burwood and all the other people who helped us! You rock!

Looking good Martin!  Definitely more user friendly, and easier to navigate...
More off than on, but still loving it! Flatland until you can't!

The new look is good, more modern, but I don't like that front page is left side heavy. I was used to having sidebar on the left.


Great job keeping site fresh. ;)

Would like to see the front news page with articles on the right hand side (flipped to what it is at present) and links to Oates news etc on the left.

Also the for sale section is a tiny "child" board, while the market feedback is a main board? .... I think that could be switched around.

I like that on the main page the top links are much bigger. It was previously a hassle zooming in when using the phone as they were tiny. Looks great, much improved!

I'm enjoying the new look...like Jm said, a bit more user friendly when navigating by phone.  It's fresh for sure. 


As a mod, seems a bit better to use for our jobs too!  I like that "reported posts" can be viewed from here, rather than having to check my e-mail(which I don't always get a chance to check).

It's like a new pair of underwear. At first it's constrictive, but after a while it becomes a part of you.

Maybe that's the problem... You aren't changing your underware and they are becoming "part of you".lol.
Nothing wrong with a little change. The old GF was getting holes in it and it smelled pretty bad. Good job!

I like this design, it looks more modern  ;D , the only thing I don't like is the side bar, because on most websites it's on the left.
