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.

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

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.

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?

    • Things are always changing, and the game is always changing.  No question about it, it's a different game than it was 40 years ago, even 20 or 10 years ago.   No secret that Peyton is/was/always will be my favorite.    I still never really feel the excitement I felt when watching him master a game!  There's nothing quite like it.   Having said that,  I am very impressed with Mahomes, and quite certain I would feel that same excitement if he was on our team.      
    • As you know, the NFL doesn't allow teams to spend enough to fill every position with all pros, so we have to choose where to put them, and then use those positions to build around.   We have excessive talent at the LG spot.  It would be a waste to now build a team around a Mahomes type of QB who needs a LG to only hold a block for 2 seconds, within an O that does not feature power running.   We should build it like the Titans or 49ers.  Game manager Qbs who can come up big when it matters but not a QB who the team has to rely upon virtually every play to succeed.   If people want that type of O, then we should probably trade Nelson to get more capital to then get that QB. 
    • Yep, to add to this...   EVERY pick is a RISK. No pick is 100% certain hit! Pretty much every position in the draft has similar hit/bust rates in the middle of the 1st.    Whoever DT you get at 13 is about the same RISK as the QB you get because you like him.  Whoever CB you get at 13 is about the same RISK as the QB you get because you like him.   Whoever WR you get at 13 is about the same RISK as the QB you get because you like him.    Also... there is a RISK and a RISK. Saying Herbert is a risk and then saying Gordon is a risk doesn't mean the same thing.    I feel like people want to go the cheap route... like... you can just pick whoever in the 3d-4tg and he has the same chance of being good QB as the 1st rounders, because you don't have a Luck in the draft. This is NOT the case. The risk of the 1st rounders is MUCH lower than the risk of lower ranked QBs. There is a reason they are lower ranked. It's not because they are as good/safe of prospects as the early pick QBs.    We have too good of a team to be aiming at the best of the best generational types. We will not get top 3 pick(generational type QB) until we bottom out and I don't see this with this roster unless something horrible happens with injuries. We need to evaluate and target talented passers that are not complete QBs, but they have high level of talent that can be developed.
