Doing some design work today, so don't be alarmed if things look a little strange.

Still working through it. Development work to resume this evening. I'm aware that some links are missing such as Private Messaging, Login/Logout, etc. We'll get all of that fixed soon enough. Thank you for your patience.

green font on dark grey background on some of the page is a little hard to read, but maybe that's just me.

Don't worry. That's not how it's going to end up. Lots more work to do. New logo coming as well.

It's not just you. I can hardly see the red, grey or green fonts on the darker grey background. Looking forward to the final design fixes.

Hoping to be substantially done with the redesign work sometime tomorrow. There will likely still be some bugs to work out, but fingers crossed nothing major. Thanks again for your patience everybody.

Nice job boss -
A bit confused by the new H-5-T logo-..maybe make the green S/5 (whatever ?) smaller so all the character fits/shows above High Sierra?

OK, a couple of quick thoughts and reminders everybody.

1) Please, please, please stop PM'ing me regarding the updates. There's an entire forum that was created for that. The updates will never get done if I have to respond to 10 people individually on the same question or suggestion each time. :p

2) Before getting started I did request members' assistance with graphics work but for the most part heard only crickets. Minor design suggestions are fine, but Monday morning QB'ing is not really helpful. I had to hire out logo design and some other development work and what you see is in part what I currently have someone under contract to complete. There is only so much I can do to change the scope of work this late in the game. There will be time to address tweaks once we're done.
