All righty then!

I see that everybody in this thread (including me, I guess) is "undef."

Since I can hear okay, I guess that applies to me.

I wonder, though, why all the posts seem to be line-centered, rather than justified or flush left?

I'm seeing an HTML comment "end marshall" on each page. On this page it appears to the right of the last post in the thread.

(EDIT: Even after I posted, it appears on my screen next to the post above mine. Strange. Perhaps it's in a column on the right of the screen?)

Hmm. I'm using Vista and Firefox. It seems to be a comment to indicate the end of the Marshall Brodien book's Amazon ad.

In my "view source" all other <!-- comments show in green. This one doesn't. Is there something amiss with the comment coding?

I'll be tinkering with everything for a little while, but I think I nabbed that.

You do NOT have to reregister. Everything (unexpectedly) transferred with no problem.

I'm going to try to move our Amazon book recs below the searchbox. But it'll have to wait a little while.

I don't know how others feel about it, but having all the text middle-justified is annoying to me -- has anyone figured out how to get it left-justified?

I'm using Netscape at the moment and the text is flush left. Not centered.

I had a lot of trouble re-registering. It wouldn't let me use my current email address so I used another. I got errors saying the email address had already been taken (obviously by me). How do you change your displayed name? It was not listed under profile, just the sign in name.

Many bugs. I hope this is sorted out.

There are different tabs across the top of the profile area--you click on the different tabs now to see more of your profile and you'll find all the information previously on one page.

WOW! Checked out the top tabs, just what is the use of the Calender? Magic Events? etc. This will take a bit of getting use to. But if this post works this is much better at posting.

I like the new layout. The only "negative" point I noticed is that the older users are now tagged as "anonymous".
Am I correct?

Carlo

ps. and I also have centered text...this should be fixed in my opinion

Yes, Brad will make some adjustments for Internet Explorer so the text is not centered.
