    OK, we're back up and running... sort of.... still some glitches (as would be expected), obvious and otherwise.

    One casualty we can't do anyhting about is that 2-3 hours of Board postings got vaporized. The boffins shoould have shut the Board down before migration.

      Where are the meet results links?
      (Not that the Mt SAC link was very helpful!! LOL)

      That obnoxious audio crap has been booted!

        The updated page is amazing. Couple hours down was worth it.

        Noticed we can download the past 6+ years of issues (Nov 2011 link is broken) which is a HUGE plus (or maybe this was available and I've just never seen it before...)!!

          should now be no limit, subscriber or not (until the end of the month, that is)

                if that's the only parameter by which you judge the site, yes, at the moment it's a complete failure.

                needless to say it's a high(set) priority fix.

                  I must admit the missing links were the first thing that caught my eye.

                  I do like the overall 'look'of the new set up.


                  hitting lists from message board yields OOPS! THAT PAGE CAN’T BE FOUND



                  noticed missing 2018 World.Absolute list when I enter lists from homepage

                  Dealing with change = not my favorite thing.

                    That's the first thing somebody else asked me about, notifying me that the website had changed at all. The question was: Did I know some alternative? I could say, well, the USTFCCCA, for collegiate meets. But other?

                    Anyway, that's definitely not "the only parameter" by which I judge the new website. First thing, quick reaction, where TF (which doesn't stand for track & field) are the eTNs? Does the old login to get to them still work, if the Login is how to get there?

                    If they're not there, there's nothing to keep me subscribing.

                    So again, quick reaction, I agree with Grad (except for the deletion of the obnoxious audio) that the new website is "horrible." This is, first, the magazine going non-hardcopy and maybe even disappearing electronically, and, second, the website make-over and link/detail-downsizing, WAY too much change too fast. I don't like what came out "on the other end" of the down time, and I'm not happy about the minimalist warning of first the magazine change and now this. We're getting way less than we used to pay before a couple of years ago. I would pay lots more for what we used to get, if somebody had bothered to survey me, but nobody did.

                      That isn't actually "missing" as it didn't exist on the old site either; first iteration of the year due to be posted next week.

                        They'll be there, fear not.

                          The login function seems to be a problem as well. I tried to log in and it said my password was not valid. I requested a new one and it said the email function was not turned on

                            Actually, they are there. If you go to the home page and look at the menu to the right of the logo you'll see News; that's a pull-down that will show you the TNs (currently only active from 2015 through 2018

                              Well, that's certainly not good. Let me set the techies on it. Anybody else having similar problem?
