    Looks really nice, a vast improvment

    Love the new look. My only comment is that is took me a while to find the forums link which I think plays a big part on this website.

    Okay my impressions so far:

    Really like the new look overall. A big improvement on the first version.

    The red (burgundy?) seems a little bit too dark to me.

    As previously mentioned, the forum link is a bit small. Often when you click a link like that on a site you find a tiny forum with less than 100 posts. There's nothing to suggest that there is this huge community behind the main site or how integral to the site it is.

    I'd like to see an MSE logo (not just Martin's head) that would be the site's badge. something that's easily recognisable and works well when shrunk down. Something that could be made into button links for other sites and put on car stickers etc.
    I quite like the "Free to Use - Consumer Revenge" stamp we currently have at the left side, but with different wording. Maybe MoneySavingExpert.com in the middle with Consumer Revenge around the outside. :confused:

    Have sent volunteer email.
    My dept (CS at middx uni) has a research group looking at web accessibility for people with physical & cognitive problems - will probably be able to borrow the testing tools.

    This is what it looks like through the red-green (deuteranope) filter

    I'm not sure if it was you who posted about this before but thats really interesting to see. What is now coming up as a khaki green is disgusting!

    It may be because you have transferred (don't know your techie term) the picture from MSE across to do this but the small blue print looks quite blurry to me?

    If it looked like (say) the Microsoft site (sorry for that particular example), it would be less noticable when the boss walks past! :)

    Of course, this is all theoretical, I do plenty of work... :whistle:

    That's because it has been run on an image rather than an actual site - the jpg is degraded slightly in the process.

    Colourblind versions of pictures are quite interesting - there's a free tool at https://www.vischeck.com (not tweakable though)

    Somewhere i have a picture of a red rose on a green background that comes out as a blank grey-brown square when put through one of these tools.

    Don't want to go too offtopic so I'll shut up now.
    Still wish I could buy a TARDIS instead of a house!
