New look for RCDB

I saw it earlier and thought it looked good. I really like the new design as it has refreshed the page (if you'll pardon the pun). The old look was more standard/boring than the new one.

I think its pretty OK - pictures are easier / quicker to skip through and the content is as-is.

The beauty of RCDB is that its all "content" over flashiness, and (small) evolutions like this are just fine.

(keep up the good work Duane&Co!)

Weird. It still looks the same on my browser. Does it have something to do with me accessing it on my iPad, or it just wasn't released everywhere yet?

I stumbled onto it this morning. At first I thought I was mistakenly redirected to their new mobile site. The funny part is that I just tried to pull it up on my phone and I got the old site.

I noticed it earlier and liked the crispness of it. Mmmm, crisps. The only thing I don't like is the "Parks nearby list" is fiddly to use compared to the previous version.

I wasn't expecting the change when going on the site today, but I like it. Nice and fresh look for the site. :)

Still getting used to it. I can say for sure that the photo viewer is great, though. It does look a bit like a mobile skin blown up to desktop size however (I'm sure it's perfect on tablet). And it doesn't even work on my mobile :cry: .

All the content is still there though - so I'm fine :--D

I don't go on RCDB as often as others, so I don't really care for the change. Doesn't look any worse than the old one.

As for those who aren't getting the change: If your browser doesn't support HTML 5, you won't see the changes. The site may also be giving mobile devices the old site while work progresses on the mobile specific site.

Although he finally accepted some help with things like uploading pictures and Lat/Long coordinates, he still does all the programming himself outside of his day job. (Programming CNC machines)

...and for those who don't like? He's always said that people are more than welcome to make their own site.

I had the same problem on my iPad

From the picture, it looks ok. I prefer the old look.

One issue that comes up for me is that because the pics now come up as a pop up there is no way to give a link to the page of a specific image.

Sometimes you might link to a specific RCDB pic because you want to point out a particular feature of a ride, but there is seemingly no way of doing that.

I think I preferred the separate tab for coaster pictures, rather than them popping up on a ride's information page.

Other than that, despite now having to click a few more times to get to certain pages, the change isn't too drastic.

Yeah, that's a problem. You have to revert back to the old version (Preferences - HTML 4 / CSS 2 in the Bling level drop-down box) to be able to get the link to a photo.

Urgh it confuses me SO much, how do I get like, the lists of coasters in a certain country and stuff like that?
