Both absolutely awful. Hideous. Who designed it? Took me a few minutes to even work out where to access information on the main site. And PASOTI just looks like any other spammy/advertising space. So much distraction on any page.

Anny option to revert to the old on PASOTI?

Nope, no option to change back. This is a completely new site rather than a facelift.

Gosh, ok. All I see everywhere is plastered ads, social media links and distracting pictures of the Green Army. Looks like I landed on some kind of social media agency site.

Only Ad I can see is the Google one at the bottom of the page.

And the big one in the top header, but as soon as you scroll down to view messages that one isn't visible.
Sorry yes but that too is a Google generated ad. For example, I currently have an ad for Ray White Real Estate for an auction in Whangarei. I bet you haven’t! :)

No I don't. Weirdly I just have a blank grey space. Result!

That'll be because it's new. Like any other totally new thing, it will be a tad disorientating at first but the new features and ease of use will be second nature in no time and a big improvement over the old site.

And Adam has done a sensational job designing it IMO, would be nice if his hard work was appreciated.

Also there is a dedicated thread on the main forum for all of this, if you have any specific concerns.

Yes, sorry I hadn't been on PASOTI in a while and suddenly it was very different. It takes some getting used to with the ads all over the place but maybe I have to get adblocker. Different strokes for different folks, at least most seem happy on the poll.

By main site I was of course referring to pafc.co.uk - which I personally don't think looks good at all.

Some people just can't take change it seems. We knew there'd be a few. Mostly those who think these websites are free.

I do appreciate that I seem like an insensitive c.... . I apologise. I wasn't trying to be. I'll get used to it. And I understand the need for the adverts completely. It just seems as though it's accounting for more of the page now. That's all. Hence, I will need to look into this adblocker thing or whatever. Apologies again and appreciate the efforts.

Thanks for that, we are trying. If we need to whack off some adverts we will. We are at the moment trying to tweak loads of things, so you will have to bear (or is it bare) with us for a couple of weeks. It certainly gets better as muscle memory kicks in. :)
