Nobody else has commented yet?

I like it. It's a bit of an adjustment from the old one, but I think the new format does a far better job of showing off the best photos. Well done, Ray!

Thanks Mark, I'm glad you like it. In addition to the new layout, the main navigation menu has been simplified and a new basic search added to the header which allows for search from any page. I'm still tweaking the design a bit and hope to add a new section this week some time as well. It will take a bit of getting use to, but shouldn't be too difficult. The rest of the site is pretty much the same.

I don't know why people are so shy, I've gotten about a half dozen positive private messages about the new look, but nothing in the forums. Thanks for taking the time to write Mark.

Hello everybody! As I write in my PM, the new site is looks quite good! I like it. The navigation menu is really simplified, I think the navigation seems like easier. Finally I agree Mark's opinion.

Lets Fly! :)

I agree with Mark and Péter, the new homepage is much improved and enphasises *military aviation photography* which surely is why we are all members here

Well, I have spoken my mind publicly several times over the last few years, not everyone has agreed which is fair enough, but I am still living and breathing

I think the reason for people being 'so shy' is negative experience elsewhere on internet aviation based posting boards. For example, one one of Airfighter's main rivals runs a system of 'respect ratings' which seems to be based upon encouraging large number of posts and seeking votes from other like-minded members. Despite the majority of those posters not having contributed one photograph to that database, high 'respect rating' seems to encourage conformity and group-think on that site. It certainly does not encourage contributions from new members.

Also, the very poor standards of moderation and blatant hypocrisy on a couple of so called 'aviation review' boards (one in the UK) have also IMHO contributed to this 'shyness'and I don't blame anyone who has suffered on those boards for keeping their heads down as a result.

Please, don't be shy, post what you think here; say if you like, say if you don't like! We are all here because we love *military aviation photography* and that is all that should matter here

I like the new look. I probably check the site for new photos a few times every day. Hey, I like airplanes. The new look is fresh, well designed, and easy to navigate. Honestly, I never knew there were so many great photos out there. I change my screen background often with new photos or some new interest I have. Great site. Thanks.

Thanks guys. I'm glad you all like it. I was aiming for a simple, and clutter-free design as possible. I'm still playing around with it a bit, the design should be finalized in a day or two, so don't get worried if things look a bit out of place here and there.

Michael, I know what you mean.
