When I go to the regular www.intrada.com, I still see the old site (although the URL changes to something else once I'm there), but I'm sure before long it will refresh in my cache and start showing me the new one.
My honest opinion - preferred it as it was. Is Intrada attempting to shift focus from here to there?
I had a look at the forum presentation. It is very much like any other and looks like a formal invoice with all the vertical and horizontal lines and busy surrounds for each posting rectangle. It hurt my head - too many lines requiring sharp focus from these ageing eyes. The posting areas need to have lighter background colours so that it is easier to read the dark text characters. Especially for lenghty periods of scanning. Here at FSM, the clarity that comes from wonderfully balanced colours and simple boundaries makes for the easiest assimilation of information that is possible. Simple and effective. This is how to do it.
