I am really impressed with the new look! It'll be so much easier for new people to find their way around.

I have a quibble with the demographics page, though. For the bar charts, although it gives a pretty chart to order the categories from most respondents to least, I think it makes the charts much harder to read when the categories have a "logical" order to them (from lowest to highest income, from least to most time spent on ATS, etc).

But then, I have a thing about making statistical resources as easy to read and transparent to the average reader as possible. I think the misuse of charts and graphs is one of the most effective tools that media, governments, and corporations have of keeping the population confused.

Just wanted to say that I'm really liking the new design!

Especially the little myATS box below the search function

As some have noticed, the new design is now live for the main (non-board pages). During the next week, the new design will transition into the board (very carefully).

It looks great!! kudos SOverlord!! I really like the blue and gray, it's easy on the eyes. Like the new graphics on the folders too.

It might be too late for this, but something to keep in mind for later changes. It would be great to add 'spell check' to the 'post reply' page for the multitude who are spelling challenged. I find some posts almost impossible to read!

It's already there. Misspelled words are underlined in red.

I agree. When I got onto ATS this afternoon, I thought Hallelujah! My eyesight has returned magically!

Great job, SO.

Minor quibble here. Shouldn't such things like "tinwiki", "atsmix" etc be capitalized?

Red lines? Where?

If you are using Firefox then yes misspelled words are underlined in Red. I don't know about using IE however. However I suspect that the spell check may be more of a matter of using Firefox than the site itself.

For example in my text box, as I'm writing this, the words "mispeled corectly labled " are all underlined in red. As an experiment you might want to see about "quoting" yourself and see if it pops up for you.

Thank you for your help!

I use IE and no red underlining, so must be a function of Firefox.

IE also has a spellcheck plugin available. One of them is available here:

Yes, it is. The thing is that you have to choose American English or World English. I'm using AE and "humour", while not misspelled shows as such.

I saw it before and liked it, just a small (and i mean small) fault:



My ATS and Log out look like Mv ATS and Loo out...Told you it was a small fault


Oh, BTW, Great work SO, without you this website would have a terrible layout and I wouldn't be posting this

One nice thing with the Firefox spell check is to be able to right click on "humour" and select "add to dictionary". Like I just did right now.

Hi. Just wanted to say that I am liking the new look on the main page.
Looks great!

I've noticed with the new home page, when I try to log in using the new log in link underneath the Google search box, that a page comes up saying I need to enable cookies in order to log in. I do have cookies enabled with the latest version of Firefox. From that message page, if I click the Log in page in the top right as I've always done, it then brings up the actual log in page. Each link points to the same URL, so I'm not sure what's going on.

I think intrepid is referring to the language selected for the browser, AE = American English.

Which brings into question other words that are spelled differently or have different definitions between World and American English.

Words like torch/flashlight, soccer/football, pissed/drunk, fag/cigarrette, pecker/chin, line/sentence.

Perhaps the one line/sentence policy should be revamped?
