Sorry you don’t like it, Earl — the reviews part is still in some flux as we tinker and fix a few bugs, but I think most people will find it much improved in the long run. We’ll see how it works once everyone gets into using the new design for a little while.

There are a few links that are troublesome right now, including the Irregulars links if you don’t happen to be logged in, but most links within the new site should be fine. Please let us know if you’re finding a consistent problem using the contact link at the top. And yes, many of the old links from the site or from external sources are not currently working — some will be fixed over the next day or so and as our site is properly re-indexed by the search engines, but we will continue to have some broken links, particularly to… Read more »

Sorry you don’t like the new site, hopefully it will grow on you as we improve it. That tease was written up here:

I’m interested in re-reading your remarks about Third Avenue Focused Credit Fund (TFCVX), but that name or any part of it (just “Third Avenue” or just “Focused Credit Fund” etc.) doesn’t produce any results. Any suggestions?

Thanks Mark. Search for Irregulars stuff is getting worked on — as is the bug with my portfolio.

That Third Avenue article is here: http://stockgumshoe.com/2009/10/an-unusual-opportunity-for-debt-investing — the link ought to work if you’re logged in.

I continue to have some money in that fund personally, just FYI

I have to agree that the reviews page is somewhat confusing. I like the layout where there is less white space, large headlines, etc. Much prefer a more compact layout with more information per page, much like the old layout. Too much navigating needed on the new reviews page to see an overall view of all newsletter reviews.

Just click on the “upgrade” link next to your name in the top bar. Thanks!

For me, the “title” with zebra background is not very distinctive. e.g. on the front page, it’s not as easy to scan for an interesting article as the previous design. Perhaps if you change the color of the title (make it red e.g.) and make it bold or add some small pictures beside it, it will make it easier to read. The “older review” link on the newsletter review page, is again in the “blind spot” for me. I must carefully search it, even though it’s the bottom most link. I think you would need to put some line breaks… Read more »
