Thank you for the changes, Delphy. It is real, everything is clearer now!

I have a problem to see correctly the news, though: when I click to any of the news link I can display only tech news - the only exception is site poll: why?

About the position of the other links I agree with Phaenoh: as messages are user's they should be where they where, so better the S2C SX2 and S2W links at the left corner, under the navbar

The buttons for the other sites are a little larger than necessary, and quite incongruent with the navbar with the white background. It'd probably be a little more unifying to have a MTS2N section up in the navbar with links to the sites instead.

...I've actually just adblocked them because I thought they looked that bad. No biggie, I know where those sites are anyway.

Quinctia, I guess the idea behind the MTSN is not just the buttons themselves, but the actual dropdown menus behind the buttons. You might know where the sites are, but do you know everything on them?

Just having links to the other sites isn't really what I was trying to achieve - I feel the dropdowns work much better becuase you can easily see the different sections and whats available instead of just having a general vague idea of what goes on.

Alisar, thanks for the heads up about the Site News categories - this should be fixed now

I think the buttons and menus really add to the site, They make the page pop, and I wouldn't even mind seeing more. I don't think the buttons look out of place at all. Nice job and well done!

Looks good to me! Although I am wondering, is it just because I am a spaz and my brains are short-circuiting from recent events in Kalamityville, or is it because of the recent changes at MTS2, that I keep showing up as offline? (I have no life, so I'm always online- hee hee.) It's just a goofy little thing I never even paid attention to, until my hubby pointed it out-I assumed when you signed in you were online, it's probably something my burned out old eyes are overlooking or I am just finally just losing my marbles, I did think I saw at one time a setting for online status, but I've searched to no avail and just don't see it. Otherwise, like I said, it's just a goofy little thing-- and everything else as usual *bows to the master-hee hee* is just great, thanks for all your hard work!

The everybody showing up as offline has been the case for, erm, 2 years? 2.5? Certainly a heck of a long time.

I think the changes are great, but Firefox seems to have gone spazz one me... Yesterday, everything was perfect but today I can't use any of the dropdown menus. If I use IE it works. Something in my FF settings must've changed since yesterday but I don't know what, and how.

Is it only me?

No, it was checked as activated. I did try do de-activate and then turn it on again and restart Mozilla, but it didn't help. It's strange, but I can of course always use IE...

And with Safari ? I'm enjoying this new navigator for my pc and I can't make the buttons functionnable with it, they don't react.

Arf, it's not really problematic, I can use IE or FF.

MissWendy, look in the Site Links dropdown as it says in the first post

Mihura, the buttons use the same dropdown technology as the normal navbar menus so they should work fine but I dont have safari...

The changes look great! Thank you. I didn't even know about Sexy Sims2 or Sims Community. The drop downs are easier to read.

Really? Whoosh, that's a long time. Shows how how much I pay attention, eh? Like I said though, It's just a goofy little thing. Doesn't bother me none. I like all the other changes.
