As the PB statistician, I obviously am in love with the new stats.  I also like the poll forum and the calendar.  All pizza tourneys should be on the calendar.  I wasn\'t expecting anything new when the site came back, so everything is a pleasant surprise.

Okay, I love the new additions forum wise. And it looks good to me, except for one thing. It may just be beceause I have a 15" monitor running 800 X 600 because I am using my father\'s ancient 350mhz Dell, but with the calendar and table of contents on the left everything else seems a little squished and I have to scroll to the right to read most posts. But like I said it\'s probably just me and it looks fine to everyone else ;)

Edit: scratch that, conviently there is a Hide Left Column option at the top I found

I concur with antbach - the hide button is a great move. :)

I really like the new look and so far the new features seem fun.
I would like the login window back at the top of the screen. Much handier if all the computers that someone uses are not cookied.
It would be cool if people could keep track of Breakfast shows attended as part of the new stats. Let us see how often the forum was represented at shows.

just my opinions, thanks for reviving the site

it is at the bottom of the forum now, but it\'s at the top of the main page (http://www.pbfans.com). i know a lot of users have /forum/ bookmarked by default, so i will see about getting the login back up at the top of there. however, now that we actually have a backbone, people should start getting used to going to the main page.

great idea, though not something i can immediately promise.. we would first need to design a solid php-based setlist archive, and then incorporate it into that. definitely possible, with a lot of work, but not on the current roadmap.

i dont been to be a pest because I love the new look to the site, much more easier to navigate and alot of info. but one problem I do have is that on the front page you guys should have a catergory that shows what forum the topic is in, althought that doesnt really matter too much because I check all the posts now, alot more than I did before, keep up the goood work guys. peace
