Dear Michael / Lyndon
I am writing to express my surprise this morning to find a completely new look ToffeeWeb!
The iconic "quartered" ToffeeWeb crest has gone, Mailbag is now called "Talking Points" and there's also a little character in an Everton kit by my member log in! That's just for starters, I'm sure there's more....
I do not recall being consulted on any of these changes or the new, clean look of the site and could appreciate an explanation as to why this is?
In all seriousness – great work, site looks like it's had a real brush up, love the new look – well done! :)

There are a few kinks to be worked out – most glaringly, if you chose to override the mobile layout and browse the site in full on your smartphone and pinch and zoom your way around, I seem to have broken that somehow but I'll look into it today.
If you're noticing anything seriously awry, try refreshing a few times with Ctrl+F5 on Windows or Cmd+R on the Mac to force your browser to grab the new assets. If problems persist, please don't hesitate to email me with the exact issue, your operating system, web browser and version.
The change from 'Mailbag' to 'Talking Points' is one that, we think, better reflects what that section has become over time – i.e. less a letters-to-the-editor-type format and more one where our readers raise topics for discussion.
The format of your submissions themselves should remain as they have been for the past few years and longer-form, more in-depth pieces should be submitted as a fan article.

Thanks for all your work. A visually pleasing website just became even more attractive.

It loads fine on my 'phone also except that the Facebook and Tweet and Email links are too close to the "Jump to End" link for my fat fingers to avoid hitting, and the Jump to End link doesn't work.
Well done, good upgrade.

A ToffeeWeb poll at least is called for to ensure these changes are reversed.
How can the people in charge have so much disdain for us ToffeeWebbers?
ps: Only kidding..... in case I get banned!

I was on here yesterday morning and there was none of this new fangled stuff.
I'm off for a lie down.
It's not right.
665 Posted 09/06/2013 at 22:13:58
And well done Lyndon and Michael. Looks fantastic. Great work.
Best Internet site on the Web just got better.

I must say that the way the new site adapts to different browser sizes and resolutions is amazing. You've really outdone yourself there Lyndon. I haven't come across any other site that degrades so gracefully. Well done.

Seriously, very impressed. Noticed it yesterday and wondered when the discussion would begin. No issues with it on my PC. Haven't tried it yet on mobile. Seems to load quicker as well. Give yourselves a pat on the back.

One suggestion. would it be possible to have a permanent thread with the sole purpose of transfer gossip? I know 99% of it is nonsense, but it does keep us fans going over the summer! I would much rather share idle speculation in a designated area than pollute other peoples threads with my half baked theories. Just a thought.
983 Posted 11/06/2013 at 14:13:50
Today it looks great, looks like the bugs are all out of the system for mobile users.
Top work - the site looks great.

They're not new computers around 4 to 5 years old I'd say, so I wouldn't be surprised if quite a few other ToffeeWebbers who don't have the latest computers can't get on here neither.

Another website award on the way? Hopefully an indicator of......
156 Posted 12/06/2013 at 08:10:53
