• It has come to our attention that some users may have been "banned" when they tried to change their passwords after the site was hacked due to a glitch in the old vBulletin software. This would have occurred around the end of February and does not apply after the site was converted to Xenforo.

I'm bored.

Me too.

What'll we do?

Dunno.

Ooooh let's revamp our site!

Are there problems with our site?

Do you want something to do or not?

.........fine. How do we do it?

You know how everyone in the world goes to the Daily Mail's site? Well let's rip that off but produce an inferior version.

Done!

Just looks different rather than better as far as I'm concerned. I think they would do better giving their content a facelift. I do wonder how much they were charged for it though. Giving websites facelifts seems to be a great racket to get into.

I thought the original Indo site was very clear, well laid out and easy to navigate....But I guess the "if it's not broken don't fix it" principle is not always applied in certain businesses, because you have to be always seen to be "innovative" and "driving change"......

Standard, but a bit cleaner looking me thinks! Like anything, a face-lift is just that, true change can only be found in content.

Meh. They've gone from looking like an actual newspaper to looking like a generic news aggregator. A la mode, but perhaps a mistake in conception.

It's better than the previous one, which was a mess. At first glance it's now more attractive than the rather plodding Irish Times site
