New tree makeover

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Keith Report 5 Aug 2012 03:10

I think that the white background is much to stark and unfriendly. :-(


Collette Report 5 Aug 2012 06:52

I totally agree. Perhaps GR could tint the background slightly.

They already have from the original new makeover and are still asking for feedback

send GR your feedback using the facility provided

either from your tree page or through the contact us in the help tab at the top of this page

Another address to send to is

which has been mentioned by Phil and Estelle on other threads as well as on the Beta testing email.

Opinions sent via any of the links are more likely to be counted than the numerous threads which have been started. You may get a standard response, but the comments sent that way are logged, and passed to the development team.

By the way - to those who appear to have made their first post on the Boards because of the changes, Welcome :-D

I like the new (mark 2) layout. It seems clearer and easy to use.



Thelma Report 5 Aug 2012 11:22

Have a look at any thread that has been ticked as answered.
I much prefer the colours of the ticked post.

Why can't they just darken the green a bit, as in all the little boxes "Send Message", "Add Reply" etc.

I have sent feedback, which has been "taken on board".

I was sending feed back re the colour scheme during the beta testing.

I have just sent another email to "theteam" re the glaring, far too pale back ground colour.

My eyesight is far too precious to damage it by being on this site.
