Andy Hall was better for the Bloodstock forum than this new ''look''.

Seriously, I feel like one of the nazis during the final scenes of Ark of the Covenant whenever I look at the new forum layout.
I looked into the eye of the fish.

Such a bad design.

Its hard to tell which are the posts and which are the sigs, its hard on the eyes (white on black with red is never, never a good idea) and to be honest it looks even worse on the moblie phone which kind of defeats the point of the update

Please change it back

Also has anyone noticed that bloodstock seems to be the only website that turns itself off for a week to upgrade. Its not like you can test them someone else and roll them out overnight ......

Need more separation between posts, at least use alternating colours or something. It's not hard.

And anyone with the old forum url bookmarked is getting a message saying the forum is down, at least update that page so it redirects here you clowns :lol:

As someone who only uses a mobile to navigate the site and forum, it blows my mind that money has changed hands for this site redesign. Either someone's way in over their head or a distinct lack of care has been given to the design.

*The home page looks shocking with pictures stretched to pixelation in order to fit the frames.
*The line up page is a hassle to navigate. Unless I've missed an obvious option... Why can we no longer see the line up at a glance instead of having to go through menus for each stage on each day?
*There doesn't seem to be an option to navigate the site as if you're using a desktop.
*The forum deserves its own seperate list.

Are there no companies/designers capable of creating a functioning website and forum for Bloodstock that's an improvement on the old one?
If it sounds good, listen to it

I try to always see the positives in things but this redesign is really bad!

Wow, this is horrid. I'm sure I'll eventually adjust to it.... maybe. I don't post here enough as it is but I suspect I'll post here even less now. Can't find the "show new posts" button or whatever it was called....

Drastic guys, sorry!

Yep, this is a right pigs ear, I guess this is where the Headliner money was spent instead of on bands.

As Bloodstock is quite well known for its nepotism i'm starting to wonder if maybe a family member did the re-vamp as part of a G.C.S.E computer project or something?.Whatever the reason-it's so shit that i can only imagine it's been done on purpose as revenge for all the piss-taking and back-biting aimed at the organizers from on here over the years.Whatever we have said though-we don't deserve this shambles.
