As most of you are aware, we are making major changes around here. The feedback we received mostly positive and some “not so kind” Firstly, we need to

It seems like there are no feedback whatsoever left in the comments. I guess everyone is happy with things now.
We have make the site load faster — in fact much faster from my side. Please give your comments on your experience of the speed. so we know the money spent on speeding up the site was worth it
So far, I only find the font size a too little too small for my ageing eyes to read. So i have requested the programmer to increase the size, other than that, there are nothing to work on – I will have to release him (end the contract) from his job. Any further additional improvement or changes, will be additional payment to him already.
So please give us your feedback soon.January 17, 2014 at 1:50 pm #25605
It fine – I can find what I’m looking for. Its been some time since the Bootleg Encyclopaedia days. You might want to fix the Godfather option on the pages menu as it overlaps the actual menu however its a small niggle and hardly worth mentioningJanuary 20, 2014 at 8:12 am #26174
thank you James for the feedback. We have corrected it. We also slim down the Menu for Label and Artists as it contains too. So we listed those TOP number of posts categories in the navigational menu. Anyone cannot find what they want, should use the “Search” bar.January 20, 2014 at 11:36 am #26212
Thanks for all the work to improve this very valuable online music resource – it is much appreciated! Had just a skim through and would suggest a few ‘nice to have’ but not essential tweaks (1) After choosing the “Label” drop down menu, you then select a label and get the results. It would be nice to see a thumbnail of the label’s logo by the label’s name, at the top. (2) When you see the initial brief summary of the CD titles for a label it would be nice to see thumbnails of each front cover by the CD title. (3) Please can you switch to a black font on a white background – it would be a stronger contrast and easier to read. My two cents.. Cheers! :-)January 20, 2014 at 3:34 pm #26249
I like Naylors number 2 item as its a recurrent theme and works well, as well as that I would rearrange the dropdowns to bring artists and labels more to the left after ‘About us’, also I would disregard the menu items at the bottom of the page.
I am not sure about a forum, I use this as a dedicated objective information resource and actively jump on dedicated fan sites to discuss what colour trousers Page was wearing on a certain night in 1973 if I feel inclined, at present people tend to discuss recordings in the comments section of each release if its of interest to them which I personally think is sufficient and more to the point relevant, I’ll leave that up to you however.January 20, 2014 at 7:29 pm #26271
Thank you Naylor for feedback.
1) Yes, i do understand about the thumbnail for each category. That is called a Featured Image function which on the previous theme, we did not update the featured image. so all the thousands of OLD post, it will have to be done manually (as far as i know) to add the image. example, i added one featured image :
it will take time to add them, but we will do it
2) Yes, we are going to put up thumbnail for just about every post. The new post recently have the thumbnails. We will be working on archive reviews
3) Yes, we like the Black theme too. We intentionally switch to White just to get feedback going. :)
Thank you again. Cheers!January 20, 2014 at 8:02 pm #26281
I liked the changes you´ve made here. My major complaint was that I could not find any CD by title or band. Now it´s possible. I used to prefer the old theme. But if it was necessary to change it, so here we go.
Here is my house of boots, so whatever it comes to make it better, it´s alright for me.
Thank you for the space for feedback and for the recordings informations.January 20, 2014 at 8:08 pm #26283
Thank you James for the feedback
1) Ok. i will ask the webmaster to move the two menus to the left. its great idea
2) As for Menu at the bottom, we will remove it and include some else.
3) Ok, the forum — still not being used. in fact, some may not know, posting the comments here already goes to the forum. look :
so a user can see all the latest topics on discussion. Basically, its like a comment but, a user can view all the discussions on the reviewed titles going on.
Thank you again for the feedback. I look forward to more feedback to improve the site.January 20, 2014 at 8:19 pm #26286
I like the changes. yes, do keep it in black. i also like the bigger fonts and more spacing. its make reading easier. however, on some older post, i believe a “BOLD” fonts was used and its makes the reading a strain on the eyes.but no big deal.
hi, “whobynumbers” — i can see two search BARs. one at the top. and one on the sidebar. both a little too close to each other. the search bar is there for you to search. i manage to find what i want from the search, not unless your search title is not in the archives.January 24, 2014 at 10:20 am #30134
1) Please give us back the black background with white lettering!
2) please use the correct label names! It’s not “Godfather Label” but “The Godfatherecords” and “The Godfather Box” !
This counts for the other labels too!
