50 seconds and half of the site doesn't load. Netscape Navigator Gold, Win 3.11.

You are not alone. I tried Lynx and it didn't show any images or ads...

Agree with others. Overall much more modern design, but it is hard to separate the sections.

A quick play with firebug gave this: http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/526/picture1giz.png 

I reckon it focuses the sections a bit better.

freitasm: What about in terms of speed rendering the frontpage? Note that we are not using any table there now.



Much improved, 2-3sec for me also on Telstra atm.

I like the new look. Sort of helps seperate the windows from one another.

Wow, been away from Geekzone for a few days and it went and got itself all flash and news site looking.

I love the new look, well done Fretias.

The one thing I would like to second is the page numbers get lost at the bottom and it's the second time I've not realised there was more than the page I was viewing...

Not a web designer but can't there be a more highlighed way of indicating more pages, at the top (Page 3 of 5) or move it down the bottom to somewhere further up????





Tyler - Parnell Geek - iPhone 3G - Lenovo X301 - Kaseya - Great Western Steak House, these are some of my favourite things.

I agree page numbers at the top and bottom would be a nice improvement for the forums.

kobiak: looking good :) but latest forum posts on the right side is too narrow for 1024x768 resolution :(



This is one of very few web sites that makes the most of my 24" widescreen display. I have started using the Homepage again. You get a snapshot of everything at a glance.


The ads occupie less than 1/8 of my screen at the 1920x1080 resolution - which is not too intrusive [and I know how important it is to have that for the survival of the site].

Actually this morning the home page is running a bit slow - It loads the header.. then pauses for 5 seconds (with the status bar saying waiting for scoop.co.nz) and then it loads the rest. Still acceptable.

I like the headers. Will talk to Phil.
