Huge thanks to the forward progress from the whole team! Definitely some kinks to work out along the way, but a HUGE step in the right direction.

I came to post some negative critiques... but I see that changes have been made since the launch of the new look, most importantly the background color (white to tan). And the quotes have been scaled down. I'm doing a 180 on my original impression. Good job by the team that is behind the changes!

I know adapting to change is almost always difficult but I think we can all get used to a little improvement. The reality is, sites like this, the format, they won't last forever. EB is an invaluable resource that should hopefully be successful to adapting to the changes of how we use the internet going forward. Plus, this option is much better than that prototype/beta garbage that previous web designer was creating, whatever that was, it wasn't it Chief.

If there could be one EB remnant that stays the same, it would be cool if the database search page could stay the same. Kind of an ode to what got you here in the first place. I doubt this is the desire of the team that is behind the newest changes but one could hope. Yeah, it might be clunky but it serves it's purpose. It doesn't need to look like a Facebook or god forbid an Instagram page.

Cheers to the rebuild team!

The white to tan(?) color change does make reading a lot better and spacing improvements are much welcome!
Go ahead, make my millennium.

As a long time member and someone who is on here everyday (but rarely posts) I just wanted to say thank you to everyone involved in helping EB turn the page on some dark days. It's nice to see so much being taken care and addressed in such a short period of time after experiencing so many frustrations with the website. The hours of volunteer work involved in making the gears here turn again are beyond generous. Thank you so much.

Props for making quick changes to make it more like the EB we know. Aligning the stuff to the left, darkening the white background, changing the sig sizes, etc. are all big improvements.
