It's pretty consistent with the website though.

Hello, King Boonen here.

I have a problem. I created this account ages ago when I forgot my password to ask for help recovering it, however I managed to remember it so as you will see this is my first post from this account.

The email I set up the King Boonen account with is defunct. Is there anyway you can reset the password and send it to this account?

Cheers,

KB.

What the hell happened to this website?

It appears to be impossible to get spoiler-free links to race stages.

Even on a 30" 2550x1600 setup it's tougher to find content.

Has the dev team been exiled to scroll city? Are they now paid on a per-scroll basis?

Website seems to be experiencing some kind of focal-motor seizures tonight. Sure makes for some challenging typing ;)

There are tons of problems
1. No avatars
2. No smilies - great when you weren't really being serious
3. Small font
4. Appears to be a new threshold to become a senior member - I was a senior before and now I am a junior????
5. No rules to get rid of trolls, off topic and ad hominem posters
6. No real effort to improve the quality of the discussion on doping topics
7. How do you download photos?
8. Changing the format when it was not broke is dumb - the problem with the Clinic was not the format but the stupid, sarcastic, ill-informed, speculative and illogical comments. A real discussion of doping could not be had because so many posters are biased and used mocking tactics.

Can you go lot go and post forum gripes on the forum feedback page. This is the Website feedback page.

This area should be for saying how great the new website is, but it's not.
It's worst than crap.
Plainly there has been little design involved with in the website revamp. I thought the site had been hacked by spammers at wiggle, what's with the Orange, purple and orange? each time this site changes there's more white space, a worst colour combo and less cycling news. 5 or 6 years ago this site rocked to had a proper mobile app which stopped being supported last revamp but still worked as a better interface to the news feed than this website. Now that's been dropped I'm looking elsewhere for my cycling news.

This site was once an oracle, it was sold to a mag, but still retained most of it's qualities, now it's turning into billboard for wiggle and chain reaction and let's face it, we know where we're going to get cheapest gear from without it being thrust in front of our eyes every time we try and find out where Cav's up to with his bowl movements.

Can someone explain how I would go about finding where the latest races news you have for say Australia or women's racing or BMX etc etc? There used to be an always visible section on the front page where you could navigate straight to different different News streams. Some one seems to have taken their eye off the ball in relation to presentation of the news, the amount of news available here appears to be a lot lot less, is this so ? or is it just harder to access because it's hidden?

This was once a fine Cycling NEWS site, not a shopping channel

The whole website is basically unusable on my mobile, not just the forum. Constant failures and pages having to reload.

It does kind of feel like the Race Results have disappeared on the new site because you have to scroll down past the News to get to them. The concept of having results in one column and news in the other worked much better in my view and also having each news/result item take up less space so that you can easily review what articles are available in a single glance. Overall the new site seems cluttered and without a clear structure, even if it does look more modern. I don't think the old site was perfect, but the new one needs more work. Having said that, I have noticed it's been getting better since the first beta version so hopefully that trend will continue.

We've fixed the crashing problem. It was a serious issue that took several weeks to debug, rebuild and test, but hopefully now it's all working. It was top priority, which meant other bugs and changes have had to wait. More to come in the next few weeks.

:rolleyes: Site blows. All the stories and features that you stuck in scrolling hell will now die a lonely death because I have no intention of scrolling into oblivion. That's why I don't go to one of the 10000+ blogs for my cycling news.
