    Default Thanks Grant and Co for the NEW directory!!!!

    Grant, The new directory looks great. Thanks for all the work.

    AND while I have your attention, all of you with over 400 posts get on the wagon and become a SUPPORTER so the site always run at peak performance and so that Grant has the resources to keep things to the level we've all grown accustomed.

    Afterall if he can't afford to run the site then one day he might have to sell it and then we'd all go into withdrawal, wear Prince Matchebelli and shop at Kmart for our fragrances.

    Yes! Blessings on you, Grant!
    Useful in a way to have the directory gone for a bit. Made me grow some hair, trust my own nose more, rather than scrambling to my big bros and sisters in fragrance and cowering at your knees. With the diversity of perceptions and modes of description represented in the reviews, the directory is the best tool I know for sorting out what you actually perceive in a fragrance. There's always something to agree with, disagree with, be puzzled by, learn from, leads about what to think on next. A truly useful and enriching thing you all have built here.
    And as to becoming a supporter, it's pretty painless, about the cost of a cappuccino with the sort of tip you leave when the barrista is both good and really charming. Enjoy supporting intelligent sensualism, one of a few things that brings some peace to the chattering mind!

    The site is getting really good. I like that now the avatars are shown with the reviews, and that you can browse the brands. The menu on the left is nice.

    But what I would like to see is my modified pyramid of notes, which would indicate the relative weight of the notes in each level. That would be awesome!

    In regard to the initial post in this thread, I do expect to become a Basenotes supporter soon.

    Please don't take this as just a snarky comment, but the reality is that I've been a member for a year and two months, and for over half this time the site was either down completely or only partially operational. That's pretty darned poor performance for a website in 2007/2008.

    So I could not in good conscience support the site under those circumstances. If the administrators can bring back the site fully, listen to our suggestions and act upon them if they are well founded, and keep the site up and running consistently, then I'm all in.

    I have to admit, Noggs has a point. The website is taking ages to be fully functional again. It seems that the owner is not investing enough. A popular website such as this must generate a lot of revenue. I have the impression that If the investments were proportional to the revenue, the site would've been fixed up quickly. One year is too long a time.

    Well, thanks for opening this thread, since otherwise I would not know the directory is functioning already.

    And of course, many appreciations for wonderful work, Grant.
    --------------------------------------
    I just checked the directory. I like how the search function is working, and that it appears below the already found scents so that I don't have to go back to previous page each time when I want to do another search.

    But what I dislike is that when I get to the scent's page, there are no links to the scents created by same perfumer or same company as there were in the last version of the directory - it was such a convinient function so I hope there is a way to bring it back.
