The New CB Thoughts...

Thursday, January 30, 2003 10:37 AM
What does everyone think of this new design?

I for one absolutley hate it. I don't like the layout, the colors, or the overall feel. I don't like that to change anything you have to be in the club. Taking away the track record and meeting calender were things i could live with, bu it's just very annoying to have to look at the most obnoxious colors and layout. The black and yellow are hard on the eyes. Please at least allow us common folk to change the colors. Am i the only one?

Why did you need to start a new topic just to whine?

Sorry, but I'd have to disagree. I actually like the new look a whole lot. Much nicer than the green that has been in place for so long.

But then I've always been partial to black for some reason.

I think the layout is much nicer, better organized, and offers more to it also.

Congrats Jeff, on a job well done, and from someone who normally isn't a big Buzz fan. :)

*member*...*manipulate*....wow, I thought the double entendres were being contained within that one thread...;)

On a more serious note, I imagine that some new stuff will roll out after Jeff is sure that the *new and improved* C'buzz is working up to specs....be patient. And who was it...(that's right, it was Jeff) that inquired how long it would take for the wailing to begin....just be patient, and please use suggestions page for.....suggestions!

Exactly, Antuan. HG, think of this site as something akin to the TurboTax packages out now. The Standard edition (non-club) gets you the basics. For $20 more, the Deluxe edition (club) gets you more bells and whistles. You either go for the Standard, or you shell out some more for the Deluxe.

Why should i pay $20 to see a website? Websites should be free to view, and don't give me crap about the costs of this site, if you can't afford it don't buy it. All you club members are doing is paying for jeffs T1 connection.

Also, thank you jdancisin, these people need to learn of constuctive criticism.

And BTW, i know how much sites cost a month, even with extra bandwidth, and yet i don't have any ads or membership fees.

Edit: Sorry that i made a second topic, i didnt see the Site Upgrade topic.

Hurricane, I have never, ever seen you post anything positive about Coasterbuzz. Seriously. If anything, the constructive criticism remark should be directed at you.

Great design, Jeff. I love the new layout. It's so much easier to move around the site and there are less ads to deal with! Bravissimo!

Take it up a notch, Mr. Operator! I wanna feel my brains in my feet!

HG, you get more than just a website for 20 bucks. Would you rather Jeff NOT have CBuzz? Seriously, $20 isn't even that much.

Hrm. Maybe you should think about that for little while, then read your original post.

I get discounts for ACE, which people know about and is a lot older than 3 years. And, I have said good things about CB, but don't like the direction that it is currently headed in.

I like the new design, but I don't think anyone should be flamming HurricaneG for expressing his views. He has a right to his opinion.

At least he got one thing right...we're helping to cover the costs and he's more than welcome to it.

The rest of the post is basically the usual flabby AssFat, especially mentioning your own website and this one in the same post. Sorry so few people care for your opinion...kinda like high school all over again I'll bet.

I don't mind paying for "Jeff's T1 connection". Nor do I mind no ads, the added features and benefits on the site, and the low cost Coaster Club Membership that gets me into SRM, CoasterMania and Timbersfest (much cheaper than my ACE membership).

As for the site and the colors (this is my artistic side coming out), I like them. Even the original, although the contrast could use a little help.

He has a right to his opinion, but so does everyone else. My opinion, for example, is that nobody has the right to whine about anything free. Ever heard the old saying, "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth?"
