I agree with the pounds stuff, but still excellent site!

I can't find any faults with it, but I'll definitely be preordering it!

Frank, I would suggest something. In the new website, when we click in Forum, is there a way to open in a new tab? Just because we may want to keep the website open to see the news, or stuff like that. Is just a suggestion :2thumbs:

Most of the time it is common practice to have links open in a new window with sites like these. It makes sure that when the user closes the new window, they are taken back to the website.

All you need to do is add this into the link code:  target="_blank"  :)

Yes definately maybe more pictures, and the shipyard looks pretty hard to navigate. The other one was pretty cool.

It gives the site a good feeling, and it feels even more serious.
Just my thoughts.

Maybe it's just me, but I find the "popup picture viewer window" a little cumbersome. I've had to repeatedly go search for a way to close it, having to scroll down and sideways somewhere and mouse over a specific point to see the (X). I'm at 1680x1050 res so that shouldnt be an issue. Also the Next/Previous picture buttons can be a bit of a challenge to hunt down at times. Perhaps rather go forward/back through the pics when clicking anywhere on the right/left half of the picture, and closing it when clicking the frame outside the picture? I've seen it done that way many other places and it makes it a lot more userfriendly.

Could of course just be a problem on my side or with firefox.

Otherwise I like the new design and the screenshots. Can't wait to preorder my donation edition!

When viewing screenshots on SSE section: "they" still keep on moving to the left or right even after loading the selected screenshot &/or after the mouse cursor is not on them.
I mean, is that for some purpose or will be fixed soon?  Because on old site they stop moving when you click on the image or take away the cursor from them.
