Ok, the new site is up for a day now, we would like to have your opinion on the new website. What do you think of the new lay-out? Did you spot any bugs, do you have suggestions for future features (we already have some quite interesting plans), etc.

For instance, many visitors have to get used to our new logo, and the new design of the front page, where news posts aren't displayed chronologically anymore. Maybe it helps to explain how our current system works.

News posts are divided in two kinds: Headlines and reports.

Headlines are large blocks of text, nearly articles which mostly contain important information, big MSX news. Reports are smaller notices which mostly contain information on link changes, MSX-related news, site updates etc.

On the front page, the headlines and reports are displayed as follows:

-Most recent headline-

-most recent report- -second most recent report-

-second most recent headline-

-third report- -fourth report-

While designing the website, we felt that this way both the smaller and the huge news posts get more attention.

- Bugs, I don't see any anymore.. {Because the poll-bug had been fixed}

- No Smilies in news posts?

- I liked the old logo.. (it contained the MSX logo)..

- Frontpage : Mwah, good and not good.... Why don't you put the articles under each other, and the most recent at the top..

Conclusion : Site is good, and what about language option... delete it, if ya can only choose for English...

Greetz,

Koetje MSX.

We have chosen the current logo because of copyright issues with the MSX logo. Until we have official permission of the current MSX copyright holders to use the MSX logo, you will have to look at the current one.

In the future we might create themes that give the news in chronological order. We decided to seperate headlines and reports in the default theme (and currently the only theme available), because we felt dat most headlines were moved from the frontpage too quickly, by - often - less important reports. The other way around occured some times as well. By separating headlines and reports, both types of news get more time on the frontpage, and thus more attention. This is especially nice for people who don't visit us every day.

For instance - if we had just been posting news without thinking about the order of posting, the MSX Resource Center Restyled newspost would have been moved from the frontpage even before the site was actually launched.

So you had problems with the MSX Association for using the MSX logo in your site's logo? This is strange... this means that the MSX logo cannot appear in any web site?

if the japanese are starting to do difficult and become like: "its our logo so take ur hands off!" then i'd say: **** them!

and i wonder, why did nishi even go to the 2000 tilburg fair if they dont even bother to create and english site or communicate with NL a bit more. ASCII cant even send (due to some weird reaons) the upcoming MSX mag abroad. Looks like they are doing everything for themselves again like they always did!

very sad Question

I think (like Sander also said a few times) we just have to be patient.

Some fine day... we may be surprised!

We did not have problems with the logo yet, but the logo itself is copyrighted material, and we do not want to risk anything now we're a foundation.

First, there IS an english version of the MSX Magazine site!

Second, ASCII *can* send MSX Magazine abroad. It has been said before talks are under way. Come on, it's not even out in Japan yet and you are already saying they can't get it here?!

Please base your posts on facts and do not spread FUD! (Fear Uncertainty Doubt)

People saying fundamentally wrong things like this do not improve the situation.
