Hello everyone, What do you think about the new TH Website?

I really like the new design with the navigation system but I think treehouse should improve the colors. I barely can't see what I type..

Add you're suggestion down below to help Treehouse to evovle their new design!

Though I managed to lurk around like a mice on a maze for a few minutes, as with all the experience I get from learning I LIKE IT!

I've noticed there is no longer a check mark next to threads that have a best answer selected.

I second the type color, glad its not just me. :)

My thoughts are more related to usability. This may have been fixed already, but My notifications were still showing as unread after I had clicked and saw new notifications.

Videos randomly pause and never 'buffer'. I have to reload the page to get the video moving again and guess where I left off.

Site looks good on mobile, but some exercises are impossible complete. The page doesn't move where I tell it too and the code editor doesn't react to typing/deleting like any other input field I encounter.

You no longer see steps for that section when your watching a video. I liked being able to scroll down and see how many videos I had left until the next section.

Not sure how new coding challenge tasks are, but I think it would be great if the editor had some sort of syntax coloring built in.

I prefer the old site. This new one is boring. All grey and square.

The lack of contrast between the text and the background definitely makes reading more difficult.

I think it's a little slow, but it's probably because my browser hasn't cached all the new files yet. :/

I agree with Calvin; I miss the ability to see the videos in a particular badge/stage.

I never cared for Learning Adventures, but the update made them a whole lot better than they were before.

Everything else is just change. It's hard to get used to at first, but it gets better eventually.

All in all, thanks Treehouse! You guys are great!

Yeah as I mention, I really dont like the mix of colors for the text.

Anyone noticed where "Job aboard" is located at?
