Networking Progress?

I know I posted about this a month or so ago, when Advent said they were a couple of weeks away from the 'Big Bang' event! :0)
I replied to an earlier comment asking for an update but it must have got missed.


What is the ETA now please?

Cap'n.

Sorry about that Cap'n, I think I did miss it. Before I started typing this out I asked the IT manager what was up and I was told that they are still trying to work it out at this point. We did relaunch the Petites site, did you see it? I am sorry I do not have more of an ETA for you at this time. I know it is frustrating. If you want to send me an email we can talk about it further. advent@atkcash.com

Well, here I go, sounding "negative" and all, but it is my honest opinion. I'm a current member of the ATK Petites site and frankly, I'm not thrilled by the redesign.

First, there's the look: It's darker overall, in this rather heavy blue color.

Second, there's the functionality. They put a red-like color for text and links against this blue background, which actually makes it harder to read things. What's more, the site has been redesigned for a screen resolution larger than what I use (1024x768), so the width of the pages is past my screen width. This makes it necessary for me to horizontally scroll through the pages to make sure that I don't miss anything.

These problems are the result of poor choices. They go against what are "best practices" in designing pages. I was pretty shocked when I first saw it -- incredulous, actually. But hey, that's life in the real world, isn't it?

Good practices are that sites NEVER, EVER have pages that are fixed widths (or heights for that matter); they instead have parameters that are flexible enough that they can appear on a variety of screen resolutions.

And dark text on a darker background? Anyone who's been in webmastering for the past ten years should know that's a no-no.

ATK Petites looked better before it was redesigned. ATK Galleria might look "simple," but "simple" is often all you need! I've always liked the way it has been done.

Oh dear! :0/

Progress isn't necessarily in a forward direction, is it?
It sounds to me like that one hasn't been thought through.

I wonder if the old format could be made available as a display option for those that don't care for the new look?

I've heard of sites doing that, especially when the new version is in "beta." If ATK Petites could simply change a few things on a style sheet, such as page widths (using percentages instead of less flexible measures like pixels) and the colors, they might not have to do a whole lot. But it depends on how they set up the whole site.
