Very nice Jeff! I like it. It's much quicker and cleaner.

Quick question. Any chance of the option of changing the color scheme like in the previous version? I was a fan of the darker background and white text. Kind of like the "Yeah, I'm in my parent's basement, but I'm viewing Coasterbuzz." kind of thing.

Its hideous but the performance is great which I appreciate. Pretty awesome that you took your time "off" and used it to get something done. I respect that.

After a day to grow on me it's much better than the initial shock. I don't know if it's easier to use day to day yet, but I have a feeling it will be much easier.

Only comment is possibly making the Active Topics and Recent News side by side columns instead of all in one giant column on the front page to reduce scrolling, but that's just me. That's something I'll do once I get smart and get money to launch my own coaster site...

Oh my God dude... step away from teh Internets before I fill the right side with your avatar.

Hahahahaha!! OMG...the hilarity of this back and forth has made me feel a million times better getting over my bad maXair-induced motion sickness than this ineffective Bonine! I almost fell out of my chair with laughter :)

Edit to say that although it took a while to get used to on PointBuzz, now that I am (which didn't take long), it's definitely a much improved upgrade and layout!

Thanks for adding the iPhone icon. I guess the new site is actually pretty good, and still the best coaster site on the web.

Looks great!

I assume the private messages from the old site will eventually migrate over?

Great, I finally get used to the old version and you have to go and change it.

Actually, it looks nice.

The old PM's are gone forever. There was no easy way to convert them. Sorry.

Doh! The upgrade happened right in the middle of a conversation via PM's. Oh well.

I finally got around to watching the forum video and it helped out a lot. Still not sold on the look yet but it is definetly faster than the old site. Nice job!

I concur. Looks nice in Chrome.

It should... Chrome uses the same rendering engine that Safari does, and it looks OK there.

Now if only Google would do a Mac version!

Add me to the list of people that have really enjoyed the CB upgrade. Not only has the usability/speed of the site been increased at home, but my mobile phone is now very found of CoasterBuzz as well.

Thanks Jeff.
