I agree with some of the above that I preferred having the latest comments to appear on the start-up page, and that while the start-up page appears OK on a laptop, it’s not the most ideal for mobile phones. Sorry, as I know a lot of time and effort has gone into the new site.
While I’ve had no problems in viewing the new site. I did get an error when trying to log-in, due to “referer header” not being enabled on my browser (Firefox), and the option for this was not obvious when going to the preferences/security page. (Obviously I fixed else I wouldn’t be typing this). Although I’m not sure if this a due to the new site or more likely the new site’s host.
