    What a surprise to wake up to this morning. Great new logo and an interesting update to their color scheme.

    How do you feel about it?

    I like it too; the only thing I hope they change is how the emails show up.

    It was easy seeing what was new vs what was old because what was new was bold in color. Now I have to look at the little Y or N to see which I've responded to.

    Not too crazy about the color scheme. But it appears they cleaned up the site code. Seems a little leaner now.

    Now hopefully the admins will work on adding some new features and functionality.

    Getting used to it, at least all the stuff seems to have remained in the same locations, operate the same, so no real learning curve.

    Curious though - does anyone think our stored photos got a little higher in res and color saturation? Maybe my imagination. icon_question.gif

    Just have to adjust my eyes! The default text when typing on the forum pages is WAY TOO SMALL and the font is inconsistent! But I like the front page.

    They finally changed the RJ logo to the one I mentioned a month ago! It won on online design contest in 2011 if I recall correctly.

    I wasn't consulted regarding this and I hereby order that these unauthorized amendments be rescinded at once.

    No - seriously - - - - I like it. Updated and cool. Every site updates and makes changes from time to time. It's all good.

    Ya it is a bit different .... some text is big and some looks small, it could just be the difference between font styles. It's kind of bright. I'll get used to it.

    It's not finished, though, right? It looks unfinished.

    Aristoshark saidOnly thing is that the font is wayyyyy too tiny in the box where you type replies. My eyesight mind is failing anyway and this doesn't help.

    Corrected

    LOL! Sorry, couldn't resist. icon_redface.gif

    Seriously, the font is indeed smaller. But browsers can control this, and I just enlarge the font in Safari. I can also do a 2-finger spread on my trackpad to enlarge the message input window as needed. I was already doing that, because my own reading vision is awful.

    Not until you mentioned it. The category is completely gone from my profile. I see that the photo comments have been retained.

    Change is a constant in life. Realjock's revamped look is probably still incomplete. However, it will have to do and we all are going to have to adjust to the new changes.

    I see in that contest this was one of the new requirements:

    "Note we don't want to include the "Gay Fitness, Health & Life" tagline, just the pictorial mark and the brand name REALJOCK."

    I do like the new logo. The rest doesn't look like much of an improvement.

    However, Testimonials are gone so is the ability to leave one, so that tells me they were able to tweak more than just the look--would have loved, a 'Block This' to go with "track this".
    I'm sure having this function would work to keep people from leaving as well as dispatch trolls quicker.
