- after posting it is kind of awkward having to press still another button till you end up on the forum. Why not either end up on forum as default or present 2 buttons "POST REPLY & Return to Forum" as well as "POST REPLY and Return to Thread": less programming, less work for server, less chance of 503 AND nicer to use.

After three years of using the *board website I find this one no way as nice, or easy to navigate around. I'm trying to think of constructive criticism or positives to teh new site, but the only thing I can think of is registration was a good idea.

How about being able to "read'' some of the thread topic whilst scrolling your mouse over it instead of having to open it up to see if it interests you?
cheers

Its a shame that all of the Starboard threads and previous URL's listed with Google are now lost. For example:
www.star-board.com/forum/starbulletin/read.asp?ID=380&t=200142574811

It might be an idea to capture any not found pages and redirect them back to your homepage and offer a search facility. It'll help increase your site's traffic. The previous threads had some great discussions and acted as a valuable resource. It would be a shame to loose it.

Agree with the others that hav posted that the new site is
- slow
- does not present the products very well (2006 was much better)
- Is dark (black text on dark brown background is difficult to read)
Overall I fell a step backward even though there probably is a lot of nice stuff under the hood. Btw totally aprove of forum registration.

Love the boards (have three of them and will probably by more in the future)

Just a quick reprint for Modigum's comment re search engine.
(original discussion located in theis thread Page 3, just above your first postin this thread)

The search engine is there, it needs to be !!

( It's the reason we transferred and imported nearly 140,000 posts in 21,000 threads from our old Forum data - how else are can you make use of that lot without a Search feature ??)

It's searching and finding, but not presenting links right now.

We're onto it and it will be a goer ASAP.

Currently you can find it hiding at the bottom of the Forums Index page
http://star-board.com/forum/index.php

Once we get the results happening, we get some more prominent Search box windows scattered around too .


Thanks and Cheers ~ Ian

Dear *board,

You 've made it a bit difficult for yourselves. I think any web-designer would agree if I said "never show your customer his new site unfinished!". Just keep going I would say until everything is running smoothly. Only then will you be able to properly assess the success of the new design.

Regards,
George.

Hi. Site looks great. Somebody may have posted this already, but I have not found the SEARCH function on the forum.

Search Engine lurks at

http://www.star-board.com/forum/index.php

Half way down the page, right hand side. yep, we hear ya.
You need a search engine to find the search engine.

It works, searches, finds, but as yet doesn't display the results in any usable links. The guys are onto it, once it's a goer the search feaure box/es will be more prominent.
We'll even put a link on the site map which can be found from a link on the home page (or direct at)

http://www.star-board.com/viewpage.php?page_id=59

Cheers ~ Ian

I'm bit confuse with the DATE and TIME when I post my comments.
What is the time reference place and the difference from Greenwich?
