...is online. Some highlights:

- Streamlined, easier to navigate
- Major site locations are now at the top of every page (forum, today's messages)
- New logo by Kaneda of the Wulf Pak
- New PM indicator. When you have PMs it will turn very noticably red (in the upper right corner)
- New "home page". When you are on the home page you have 3 columns of information - when inside the site it knocks down to two. This eliminates some of the clutter on the left hand column.

Comments? Suggestions? This may go through some more improvement as feedback comes in.

If you like it, post up! If you hate it, post up!

BTW, If you want to go back to the old theme, go to My Account->Select Theme and then select DCSportBikesOLD.

I can't see the benefit of the new logo. No offense to Kanega. I admire the effort, but I can't get "DC Sportbikes" out of it. To me, it looks like "DI Sportbikes" done in a negative pencil etching that's hard to read. Did you decide on this logo, Rob... or was it a vote that I missed?

Other than the aforementioned, the new look is a nice drive, and it loads faster.

Johnny V, the 20 most recent posts can be maximized on the right hand side of the home page.

As said before Rob, nice job on updating the site. It's much cleaner and easier to navigate.

Thanks, Brooks! I saw it and edited my post... right before I saw yours. I also noticed that it no longer shows "this post has been edited X times" anymore. I think that was a good feature.

It still shows you "This post has been edited". If you edit your post before anyone else replies to your post, it doesn't it the comment. If you edit something after someone replies, it puts "This post has been edited...".

Also, you aren't the first to mention that they didn't see the logo contest. I don't see how though - it ran for a month as an announcement and we had several posts about it.

Either way, this is what we're using now. If something we agree on better comes along we might use it. The people hath spoken.

I don't like that the last 20 posts is now on the right and when you click on one the list dissappears. The only way I can get it back is to go back to the home page, what's going on?

Yea, I figured once you're in the forum your in the forum. Have you tried using 'Today's Messages' link at the top of the screen?

I suppose I could swap the calendar to the right and the last 20 posts to the left...anyone care to weigh in?
