Bejabbers!! This is going to take some getting used to, but I look forward to cruising the new marketplace and seeing how it all works.

Looks fine (anythings better than that default cream background)

It looks great and I think it will be so much easier to find what we're looking for! Good job!

OUCH! The white background hurts my eyes! Otherwise it's great!

There's a lot good about it-- and a soon as the What's New section is fixed it will be useable. As it is, I almost gave up trying to find anything. Personaly I do not like the white background, but it is more professional, even if a bit hard on the eyes.

Does it make sense to have a pull down list of top sellers on every page - that is, for the Vue, Bryce, and programs pages other than Poser, when almost all the "Top Sellers" make only Poser products? If I go to the 3D Accessories - Vue page, and pull down the list of Top Sellers, I would expect to find the Top Sellers for Vue there. But, this is not what happens. I get the list OK, but mostly - maybe all just of Poser product makers. Am not sure this is terribly useful.

I really like the new look. Makes me feel more comfortable. Good Job.

I think its nicer looking but when it comes to searching. There is way too many clicks. I will resolve this byt adding a popup menu for each main category and second popup for any submenu. Also not only place the feature products but the new ones and the ones in sale; in an area that its more visible. I understand that there is whay too many products and specialties but you have to go back in order to do a search. Sometimes you dont even know what you want, and just want to see whats new and interesting for you. You want to be able to see things that you normally wont search for. These are some of my sugestions. thank you

I agree with Grey Tower... OUCH! The white background is a little hard on the eyes. Not thrilled about the smaller thumbnails, but I can get used to them. I like the navigation and can appreciate the work that went into this, but I'm not certain about the aesthetics yet. I'll shut up now...

It is very user unfriendly, hard to read on a 21 inch 1280x960 monitor. How about giving us a choice of the old site or all pics in a preferences setting?

RossoMan ( posted at 12:00AM Thu, 27 May 2004

Well it's a change that I like, but I would like to be able to change the (background)color(s) and also larger thumbnails would improve it even more.

Strixowl ( posted at 12:00AM Thu, 27 May 2004

Really like the re-design, "except" the blinding white/cream background. Is there a way to change the color from my end? This color really is hard with my eye sight.

danob ( posted at 12:00AM Thu, 27 May 2004

Hmm great to see the new look but those colours!! Yuck!!

high_velx ( posted at 12:00AM Thu, 27 May 2004

Great work, it's so fun to use the drop lists, I can find things I couldn't before!

kokachin ( posted at 12:00AM Thu, 27 May 2004

Eh, liked the old one better. A bit too messy for my tastes. Oh well.

chadro ( posted at 12:00AM Thu, 27 May 2004

LOOKS GREAT MUCH BETTER FUNCTION easy to use!!

jpmays ( posted at 12:00AM Thu, 27 May 2004

The new look seems somewhat dark, wouldn't you say?
