    you guys probably noticed it by now, i just released a new BadmintonCentral.com!

    you can find it as usual, here:

    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/

    the new BC has a much better managed contents, it has a nice management system that allows me to add and remove articles and other contents with ease. and yes, that means it will be updated more often. it is also more integrated with the forum. both style-wise and navigation-wise.

    there is now a content column in BF. it allows jumping to the different sections easily.

    the logo is still missing. i will fill that in when i figure that out...

    let me know if you have any problem. i have tested the new style in both Firefox and IE. and except for one minor strangeness in IE, i think they are pretty much the same...

    hope you guys like it!

    Wow Kuwn, at first I thought the server was playing tricks with me or that it somehow temporarily let me into the moderator screen.

    Love the new style and the way the pages are set up like files. Awesome new look and great job! Thanks!

    if you are using IE, you may notice there is a 2 pixel gap between the top images and the menu. that's not intentional ! the gap is not supposed to be there but i spent ages trying to figure out what's going on. Firefox doesn't have that gap nor does it appear in the BC side either. only on IE+BF. drove me crazy.

    if there are some HTML+CSS experts out there who can figure that out for me, i will be very grateful!

    Neil, i am keeping on style around, so there is no way to go back.

    another change that i made is that i am now favoring using www.badmintoncentral.com as the domain for all sections, so instead of BC.com, BF.com, BR.com & BA.com, we will have just BC.com with each one of the section as a sub directory. this is more consistent and makes managing them much easier and create less confusion.

    the previous domains will always work, however.

    the new location under BC.com for all the sections are:

    /badminton-central
    /forums
    /reviews
    /gallery

    OK.
    It's just the margin that now runs all the way down the left side of the screen that I don't like.
    Maybe there's a way around that at my end that I don't know ?
