Welcome to the beta of Wincustomize 2K5

Friday, October 15, 2004 by T-Man | Discussion: WinCustomize News

Welcome to the new WinCustomize website!

Please take a look around and lets us know what you think of some of the new design and layout. But also keep in mind that we are in an early beta of the site. Many areas are still unfinished and have a few quirks about them. But feel free to post any problems you see just in case it's something that we have not seen yet.

no other issues at the moment, other than those mentioned for firefox! It looks great, can't wait til it's fully live!

Using Firefox 9.3, all looks good and loads fast. Well done!

I really like they layout. I have only one suggestion. Either make the colors darker or give us options to change the skin of the site to a darker color.

All this lightness and brightness is tough on the eyes!!

Functionality is great!!

Looks great, I like the lighter feel. Seems to load quicker, too. IE 6 latest updates/XP pro SP2

It does load quicker...its caching images now, so its using the same files from page to page for the graphics.

Looks awesome! I like the options for Bold, Italics, and underline, plus the extra stuff. Need some more smilies though

Unless I missed it, I didn't see the latest submissions on the front page.

Other then that, I think it looks great! Can't wait till it's fully up and running

I didn't notice the newest tab so that was my fault about not seeing the latest submissions.
The Newest Area is awesome! I like the design!

The tab thing is a great addition.

The "Newest" tab is an especially nice feature with the thumbnails.

Looking like a nice outline to build on.

T-Man, I posted an article on my JoeUser site today but it still doesn't show on my WC page. All my other articles show and the articles on my watch list show.
Does it just take a while to sync up? Or is there something you could look at?

Hey TasT, I've updated the Bold, Italics, and Underline for FireFox/Mozilla users and you should be okay now. Still working on a solution for Opera users, but a fix I'm certain is on the way.

Wooo Hooooo!!! I just quoted in Firefox! Thank you!

I hope this either is or will be fixed on Joeuser also.

Very Nice. Will there be new themes? I noticed that the pages load much slower than the old site, until you return to them. Then, they load much faster than the old site. It's looking good though.

I agree with WOM....it's going to take some getting use to after 3 years of the old platform. Looks great however & I hope all is uploaded & ready soon!

This might sound really sad, but Wincustomize site is the only thing that keeps me alive! I just love coming on to this site and checking for new programs/skins/stories etc... and then customizing my computer to how I want it, and not how Microsoft wants it!
I would like all people to know that, although still in Beta stage, Right-click is going to be the best program ever invented!

I REALLY like the new look!!Great job! Not much else to say except HOME RUN!!

Very nice, a great improvement over the original.

Only issue is as Woodbridge mentioned and that's Opera isn't 100% yet, but hopefully will be

This is a nice lay-out. I'm using Avant browser and the pages seems to come up real fast. I've done a little html in the past and I know what a chore it can be on a personal level. It's a little bright, so down the line I hope we will be able to pick the background colors. Over all, NICE JOB!

The home page is very clean and crisp. It's not as jumbled as old site. I like that you can link to more information if you want to. That way it keeps the front page more appealing.

This is a kick-ass site upgrade.
Reply #38 Saturday, October 23, 2004 5:41 PM
seems to be cool ...
Reply #39 Sunday, October 24, 2004 2:31 AM
Great, great job! It's loads the diffrent sides really quick! And that's really great!!
Keep on and this will be the best site, but ofcourse it already is!!
