New look coming for BoatMad!

Hi folks - I wanted to let you know that later this week the forum is getting a long overdue facelift. The look of the forum will be updated and a couple of new features added. There should be very little time offline while this is completed and all your posts and images should be retained.

Here's a sneak peak:

There is room in the new side bar for a variety of content and it will be periodically changed. Rotating pis of member boats, the "who's online" list, etc. That screen shot is a mock up

Wonderful, lets chop 20% off the side of the content area so that all the posts get squeezed. Thankfully add-block saves me from the nastiness of the internet and makes it usable again.

I don't see the adds, just white spaces where they were... Still annoying as it wastes 1/3 of the page.

I am afraid to say it now takes so long to load a page (and we are on fibre) that I am now loosing the will to visit Boatmad and if it carries on I will look elsewhere for my boat fixes!

Boatmad is becoming like racing in the UK it is dying because a simple format has been complicated !!!!

I just tested with Safari on my Ipod (see above post) and was able to browse and upload without an issue.

I am not an Apple guru by any means, in fact, I only have this Ipod for debugging stuff like this. Are you doing anything different than I am other than using an Ipad?
