I had a surreal time with new version. I was very busy yesterday and didn't go to AWAD early. Around 11:00 p.m., went to AWAD and found I was logged off and had to log on (old version with pink still showing). When I went to log on, the system refused to recognize me -- kept asking for my password over and over. Gave up in disgust and went to bed. When I went to AWADtalk just now (3:15 p.m.) it was in new format and log on worked fine. I figured (and hoped very much) that the log-on problem was a temporary one; I would hate to have to start all over again as a stranger, newbie, etc.

I like the new fonts and colors. I hated the pink and the new colors are, to me, a little easier on the eyes. And I find the new fonts easier to read.

post-scriptum addendum: The pages seem to download significantly faster. That was one of the reasons JazzO wanted to revise the look.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I agree with everything that BYB says. Not so much surreal. Much, much better. Reductionist. Loads a bit faster, too.

Great stuff, everyone involved.

Just the ones directly within AWAD, not the Anagram pages etc. I think he's trying to streamline the whole site now. Which my design would have done . . . grumble grumble grumble

Bob, I had a similar problem. It must have been earlier this week - not sure when. I tried to post a reply, and when I hit "Continue," it would simply clear the form. I tried logging out and back in, but the same thing happened with the login - it would clear the fields and not be any use at all. The problem was gone a few minutes later.

Ah, Ha! So THAT'S what happened - my password was refused a half dozen times before I ended up asking for and getting a temp password. Then, later, when I had to shut down because of *huge* lightning storm, my old log on name was already up and running when I booted up .... must have been The Great Changeover. Thanks for clearing up the mystery!

I had the same problem, but I already made a thread about it.
