been away awhile - DA site redesign Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

It's been several months since I checked the site and board. When was the design overhaul done on the DA site? Looks like a definite step backwards in appearance and usability to me. The scroll bar is particularly irritating. Yuck.

Well, the intention is to keep it changing. And each
version wll not make everyone happy, if you don't like this
one, don't worry it will change again.

Just curious...

Where are you getting a scroll bar thats different than before?
There was always a scroll bar on the right for the "content"
part of the site.. are you on a really small screen size?

Audiori,

I'm using an IBM laptop with 1024x768 display resolution and Internet Explorer 5.5. The main text with the blueish background has a scroll bar
so if I want to see the tour dates I have to scroll down. Of course the natural inclination is to use the standard scroll bar on the IE window but that only shows me a little more of the page. I have to use the 'inner' scroll bar which is a bit of a pain. I've never seen another page designed like this and i've been web browsing since the early 90's. I'm sure you did it so that the horizontal menu would stay in the same place.

I see lots of web pages with that inner scroll bar. So it was not a huge surprise to me.

You guys are right, it's a great, great design. It's the DFBB of band web pages. It is way, way, way better than this page ! Now that is a very bad web page design.
