Praise. Hate. Bugs. They all go in this thread.
I've gotta tell you, when I went to my bookmarks and clicked BigCricket, the site loaded and I straight away thought I'd clicked the wrong one and hit the back button - everything has changed in a big way. I like it though, as Ljp said it's going to take some getting used to.
Two really minor things I've picked up in the few minutes I've looked around:
- Can an English (UK) be put into action for all us proper English speakers (don't mind the ironically terrible grammar )? This was the same on the old site.
- Arial or similar font type (as I am using) set as default as I think it is an easier font to read personally, plus is the standard font used for all things internet.
Also what has happened with the different region's boards? Now there is only an Australian board plus a general area. I know that the Aussie board is practically the only board that used to get used, but I still think having maybe an English and Indian board considering there are a number of English posters and a couple of Indian or Indian based ones. I think if you are going to bring more posters, particularly international, to the site there needs to be avenues available for them to post on. I think just having an 'international', 'general' and 'Australia' option will get quite cluttered in the long run. At least 'Australia', 'Other countries', 'International', 'General' and 'Past and Current Series'. General would be used for things such as questioning rules and raising an issue for example like 'Should there be the UDRS system?' and similar sorts of things.
Also would it be too much hassle to loosely outline all the new and/or improved features available to us now?
