The new site is really bad. It runs against all the principles Scott and Dilbert are teaching us for years: Skip the things that are "one step removed" from what is really important. Drawing good cartoons is great but packing them into a clunky flash machinery is completely useless.
Hi, I just registered only so I can complain about the Catbert changes you have introduced.
Just how many negative comments does it take to make you put this website back the way it was?
This is really a truly NEGATIVE HORRIBLE experience now.
It is Tediously Difficult to navigate, Slow to load, not at all fun like the original site.
The previous version was much faster to load too.
We ALL propose you should abandon trying to "PIMP UP" this site up and go back to basics
Please strip out ALL that boring Flash Nonsense and KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid)
By the way the GIF generator you are using produces terrible quantisation noise in between the main lines, it looks like you are using MS Paint? Yeugh! Pittooie!
Cannot see the dull blue on black, please use another color like bright yellow or lime green--default fonts are too small for easy viewing--cannot easily figure out how to view 2-line panels, your strip jumps into the black frame which masks all but three frames...yes, you can pull it back out with a click--right back into a too small default size--if these problems are mine in that I haven't yet figured out which of the buttons make things better, then I would say that the path to that solution is not intuitive--ambivalent about color; however, would prefer b/w so as not to waste expensive color ink when using your strip to illustrate one of my essays or messages--how about putting in a b/w option button? All in all, this new site looks like a noble effort executed by immature programmers focused on the making things very cool while ignoring their audience which I would suggest are people who value the humor, but not so much "the experience." However, as immature programmers, they shouldn't be held responsible for their failure...that award should go to the manager or officer who approved this project result. Like the genius at GM who approved the Pontiac Aztec design, he or she has the dubious honor of knowing that each day millions of people wonder, "what idiot dreamed up that trainwreck?" ...for what it's worth.
I love the site. Its great to test real connection speed :)
Seriously though, there's no such thing as zip code outside the US. I know some countries have
post codes which are similar, but you're being a bit parochial having zip code as a required input for registration.
They just aren't necessary in tiny countries like Ireland.
I still love the comic strip. Good luck with beta version 2!
