Greetings and merry Christmas from ChristianBlog.Com
We would like to wish everybody a most wonderful 2009 Christmas!
We know that there are folks from one end of the world to the other who are members here at ChristianBlog.Com and it has been an amazing year - a blessed year!
We pray that each and every one of our members will have a most wonderful holiday time with their family and that God will richly bless each and every person out there!
We have also put together a special (logged in) home page for everybody to have a day or two of checking-out! It is a design we are highly considering implamenting in early 2010. So, we very much welcome feedback from everybody. It is a pretty drastic change from how things are now, so spend some time playing around, clicking on things, experimenting and all that fun stuff. So far every single person who has seen it (a half-dozen or so) have expressed amazing feedback to us - but we would love to hear from all of our community!
Anyway, enough about "business"... it's Christmas and that means it is time for laughs, lots of food, and good-cheer!
John, Thanks for working overtime to give us all that is in CB.
May you have the happiest Christmas you ever had...
and a blessed 2010 better than 2009.
Merry Christmas here too. But, there is always that word, but, or if, right? I like checking out the older blogs when things get slow, and can I still see those anyway?
You work hard, and it is appreciated, I will adjust, whatever you do. Merry Christmas!!!
Now you should know by now it takes time for me to get use to changes. I will like whatever is designed and get use to it. But at this time I really don't have an opinion.
AWESOME! Love it!
Have a very Merry Christmas! :)
Way better... It makes it much easier for the newbe to shop. It's nice to introduce the visuals as you have. Good job John. milt
I hate to say this, but I had a couple inches of programming language appear near, but not at, the top of the page, and clicking feedback directed me to this column. Anyway, Merry Christmas.
The change looks great! John and all at CB, have a wonderful and blessed Christmas! Thank you for making the spreading of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the ability to have fellowship and share our lives with other Christians possible.
Thanks to everybody for all of the wonderful comments on the new design I have been working on - regardless of whether they are for or against it! At the end of the day I want to make sure that all of you are happy, so if a decent percentage of folks are not happy with it, I need to know that.
I am working on getting the initial load time fixed. I obviously borked something... just trying to back-track and figure out what.
I am also working on a demo page for the members profile page. Once I have this demo page completed we will let everybody know and would highly welcome feedback. So far it looks very nice. More importantly, rather than a profile page taking 10-15 seconds to load, it is loading in 0.04 of a second! In order to make that drastic reduction in time we have had to remove a few things (such as the comment form for the gallery - which is still on the members main gallery page). We have also gotten the tabs working again - and properly this time. About all that is left for the profile-demo page is for us to plug in all of the security features. Once that is done we should be ready to announce it!
Anyway that is about it for now.
I have created a CB Group for further discussion of this new design I am working on.
If you have any additional comments regarding this new design please take it to this new group!

I thought I had commented on this but obviously I hadn't... I have an "excuse" though and I am sticking by it!
Seriously, I think the new design is great. Despite having come upon it just after getting out of the hospital, I have found it easy to use and I think it looks great!
