Any Other Topics: New Look Website

A redesign of the website has been taking place over the last few months. I am hoping it will go live later today (Friday). There may be some disruption to the service for a short time when it does.
You should find that all the information which was previously available is still there.
Those of you who have permission to access content editing facilities should find that these still work in exactly the same way.
If you find any problems with the new-look website such as broken links, or missing information, could you let us know as soon as possible - there are bound to be a few teething problems with a major update like this.
Is there a reason for this change. It came as a shock!
wouahh nice frame design, i love it.
navigation is easy and menus give quick access to desired heading.
Fantastic! Really looks great.
Only complaint is the loss of the gentian from the AGS logo. The anonymous 5 petalled blue symbol could be anything; well almost. Maybe it has been used before and I haven't noticed :-(
The site seems to work fine and it is good to see more screen space used.
Took me by surprise but I like it. It's given the site a much more up to date feel
Love it, fresh, modern and easy to navigate. Well done for a fab job
Yes, like it too! But I wish it was possible to edit entries - I am fed up with the multiple question marks that appear instead of quotes when you paste entries (the only way out seems to be to enter them by hand). I have wondered whether to use dashes instead of quotes? But that is a pretty minor quibble - will be interesting to see how use of the site might develop... (there are no statistics for viewers to refer to?).
I must agree it works well. I frequently bypass the home page and click on 'discussion', so the first time I thought I had found a fake site! Seems I cannot bypass the home page.
I do wish it was possible to use italics for foreign languages especially for Latin names.
Perhaps it is my computer but the black menu bar scrolls up out of sight whilst making any entry.
We seem to be on GMT. Is that intentional?
I cant spot a search option which I think would be really helpful - is this a possibility?
