I don't know why? My Commodore 64 is working just fine.

Same for my IBM PC Jr. My Floppy Disks are a bit dusty but she runs beautifully. It's a 1984 model!

My Atari 800 went on the blink, so I had to pull the Trash-80 CoCo out of the closet...  :^)

The font is horrible and difficult to read, not trying to be a * on purpose either, almost makes me dread coming to the site.

 

Look at the letter "i" (as in "India") for example...

it's really a lower case I, but it looks like the letter "l (as in "lima"), as well as the numerical number 1.

 

There's no dot in the i at all.

 

You know it's bad when I have the use the phonetic alphabet to specify if I'm referring to the number ONE, L as in LIMA, or I as in INDIA.

I have to be honest. I'm not thrilled about the font either R8591. Just when I get used to things, something throws in a wrench to gum up the machine. I thought something was wrong with my computer the first time I logged in after a break from the forum.

Put your glasses on. :thmup:

I have my glasses on buddy& still don't like how i's & L's look identical in nature. I don't like change all that much. Yeah I know, it's part of life & I do get set in my ways. I'll muddle thru I guess. Not an indictment against all the IT specialists who worked so hard to upgrade the Forum BTW. I'm come around eventually.

I read ya man & no, you're not being a pessimistic downer on the new look by any means R8591. Letters blend together too much. little i's vs capital I's. Not all that pleasing to the eye when you can't decipher letters from numbers like the letter i from the # 1 for instance. I don't really care for it at all. 

 

Another difference marketed as an improvement which isn't necessarily an improvement in my eyes. New doesn't always mean better just a fresh set of new challenges to contend with. Oh well.

Fortunately   Ctrl +   enlarges the web page (and font) on my browser on my laptop (Firefox).  I also have touch screen with tablet emulation mode so I can enlarge just like using my iPhone.  The i and l looked alike to me as well at default size... I don't leave it there.

That's how mine is when viewing in Safari. Google Chrome looks good though. We had this discussion a few days ago.

I can't even access any of the photos and that was one of my favorite activities on the website. Looking at the after practice pictures for OTAs and Training camp.

Interesting, I have viewed it using Safari without any issues.  It is also fine on my phone which does not use Safari.

Yeah, I assume it's probably because I'm still using El Capitan. But I could be wrong.

I just checked I am still using El Capitan.  I haven't upgraded to High Sierra yet.

Hmm, then I'm not sure. I tried on a couple other computers at work and it views the same way. Not a big deal, tho.

Hi, we had this conversation here: http://forums.colts.com/topic/58420-the-new-coltscom-is-slick/

 

My understanding is that the new colts.com only works with the 2 latest versions of any browser.

 

Try upgrading your browser and let me know if that does the trick

I thought this would be about the delay with the little circle arrow appearing

the forums have issues related to the new colts.com website.  We are somewhat connected to them now but there are issues to be worked out before we can complete the connection.

 

Slowness is the big one I see here.  I often get messages that this site is slowing my browser down and do I want to close it.  Also, there is funkiness on the status update pages (not being able to like a post) and also sometimes log in is glitchy

 

IP knows about all of this.  The goal is to get this puppy working by training camp!

What OS you're running shouldn't matter, but at the same time you might be onto something. I'm on High Sierra, and it looks perfect in Safari, same for Safari on my iPad Pro.

I wasn't sure if my Safari isn't the newest since I'm still on El Capitan or not. Like maybe the browser is updated in high Sierra or something.

I didn't comment in the first thread because I wanted to give it a chance...

 

Now that I have, I can say without hesitation; It doesn't look good, it doesn't function well and the layout is uninspired.

 

It's so bland, colorless and lifeless that "depressing" is the best way to describe it.

 

FTR: I use Firefox Quantum 60.0.2 (64-bit) | Windows 10 Pro

Yeah, I'm still on Sierra, but the site looks and works great with Safari on my end too.

It's a sample from a Kiss song.

Wondering if they have estimated the time frame for fixing the forum issue. I can post from my iPhone (a pain) but I can’t from my work computer. It uses internet explorer 11. Hope there is an update otherwise I will be limited in my activity.

Have you tried chrome or firefox?

    • I'm actually dropping the jags D in favour of the patriots D. I don't like the jags D versus the new bills that have two weeks to prepare.    Right now I've for Ari for this week, Mia for 12,  KC for 13, NE for 16 and backup on all my weeks except for 15. Which I plan on getting Den or Buf for 14 & 15.
    • Gurley already got that, $45M actually. You need to do some research.
    • Luck is 9-0 vs the Titans let's make it 10
    • We've talked about it a lot this year.     Especially in August and September.    Ballard brings in all these kids and he has to see what he has.    How do the kids do in real games?   This past week,  we had Smith make a rare penalty in the 3rd quarter and suddenly we're facing 1st and 20.   The very next play works to perfection...   the J'Ville defense clears out and Hines is all by himself in the middle of the field.    Luck's pass is perfect but Hines turns his head to run with the ball before he catches it.    Dropped.     If he caught it,  he might have run a long, long way.   The next series,  a well conceived pass play finds Luck hitting Allie-Cox with a great pass.     Allie-Cox looks the ball into his hands,  but it goes through his hands, off his chest protector, bounces off and gets intercepted.     The perfect play works perfectly right up to the moment where it doesn't.   That's what kids do.     They make mistakes under pressure in big games.   This is the bad with the good.     If you're looking for Reich and Ballard to bench these guys --- you're going to wait a long time.   The kids still need to play.     The more experience they get this year,   the better they will be NEXT YEAR.   And that's what this year is about.     Making next year,  and the years after them,  as good as can be.   So, if we see more mistakes from the kids Sunday,   don't be too surprised and don't get freaked out.    It's what happens when you play the kids.   And Ballard and Reich know it.   Should be a great game Sunday!!  
    • Of course you wouldn't mind.    Problem is,  it wouldn't happen.   What has Hooker done to warrent trading a 1st or a 2nd round pick?      Not nearly enough.   Right now,  we'd be lucky to get more than a 4.   Hooker isn't going anywhere...
