Thumbs down Not feeling the "Bimmerpost" front page.

Looks like it was just changed. Not a fan, looks sloppy compared to before. Not trying to step on the toes of whoever changed it, but just seeing if others liked the old style better.

The old style was perfect, IMO. Looked more professional.

Edit: I didn't mean to post this here. My bad.

Right, but the previous format with the news item picture centered, and the scrolling message underneath the picture seemed to look a lot better, imho. The blurb underneath the picture, the way the picture and the blurb scrolled to the next item, etc. just seemd a lot better than just seeing a random picture now, and having to scroll down to see the appropriate caption that corresponds with the picture. It is not that big of a deal, just trying to provide some feedback.

What resolution are you running on that you can't see the title without scrolling down??

I can see the title. Don't worry. I'm really not trying to make a big deal about this. I was just voicing my opinion that I liked the old format better. In fact, I thought it was the best homepage that the site has ever had in terms of looks/functionality. The new format is growing on me now.

Tell me if this is true of the new format: I think this is an improvement that was recently made. I notice that now there is just 1 large picture in the new format, vs. initially in the new format where there seemed to be side-by-side frames of the same picture.

Regardless, thank you for responding to my feedback. I appreciate it.

You know what I think happened, I think you had a cache of the old hompage on your computer with parts of the new homepage on your computer thats probably why it looked strange. If you do a complete page refresh (F5 on internet explorer) then you should see it how its suposed to be. As for the criticisisms, I welcome them, they can only help to improve the place, thats why I'm trying to figure out whats going on, the title of the news article should appear without having to scroll down for sure
