Re: EF is getting a slightly new look

From the new EF Facebook Fan Page:
Quote:
Reason was: to bring the branding into line with other sites in our network (thelocal.se & toytowngermany.com)
Well, that's much more honest than what was posted at the top of this thread and was couched in a far more 'cosy' wording
Quote:
The aim of this is to make the look and feel more consistent with the other websites in our family
If you ask me it all adds-up to the owners grooming the site so that they can flog it and the rest of their 'network'.....and if you want my half-rappen's worth I think the 'new look' is pants too.

Re: EF is getting a slightly new look

Meh, I don't see what all the fuss is about - I honestly couldn't tell you what the old front page looked like, and only went to see the new one because of this thread.

'New look', 'old look', doesn't really bother me ...

Re: EF is getting a slightly new look

I never look at the front page so I wouldn't even notice if it disappeared completely.

I do, however, appreciate that the links are underlined again. Whoever invented that clever method of simply having a different colour for links, a colour which was hardly distinguishable from the normal text, had never tried to persuade 5,000 Efers to look up links instead of being hand-fed with information and had never tried to find spam in 100 posts per day, sneaked into texts by spammers.

I don't hate it. I do hate people assuming they know what I feel on an issue without consulting me, or presuming to speak on my behalf.

Re: EF is getting a slightly new look

A lot of fuss just use the 'New Posts' link and normality is restored

Do you really think all your complaining and shouting is going to make Ed Bob reply? 9 pages since starting the thread and he's not answered yet so I am guessing he's not intending to, so you all best get used to the new style and just use the 'New Posts' link

Completely agree but I really don't think they are going to put the forum back to it's former glory so it's just going to be one of those 'outrageous', 'despicable' 'how dare he' threads that will run and run but nothing will get changed.

I like these sort of threads - you get to hear some bizarre stories!

Re: EF is getting a slightly new look

FFS it's just an Internerd forum. I bet you all hate changes on Facebook and complain when the train is 48 seconds late.

Who cares about the front page? The forum's still the same with the same whining change-averse window lickers bleating on about how it's a disgrace.

Well it has been 2 hours since anyone posted on this thread.....

You're right. And, sadly, it really just put the mods in the firing line, trying to calm people down instead of the person/group who caused the issues replying to the issues/bugs raised.

Mods, perhaps it is time to close this thread?

Perhaps, but then again the main purpose of this thread is for comments about the new look, or to vent about the new look. It'll die a natural death eventually anyway.

For what it's worth I'm not a great fan of the new look front page either, but I can see where it's coming from. It was inevitable that sooner or later the EF would be brought in line with The Local's corporate branding. I think this was obvious to a lot of members right from the start.

That said, it's not a front page that makes a forum. As other people have said it's what happens behind that front page that counts, and that essentially is you lot.

I've had a lot of fun, found out stuff that's saved my life, and met some great people as a result of this forum. Am I going to hang up my hat just because of a front page? No.

I like the useful, informative posts ... but due to a lack of motivation to find out, I still don't know where to find brown sugar (or equivalent).
