    Will the "off topic" be making an appearance.?
    The Huddler site was style over substance. I'd rather have a useful Basenotes than a fancy looking one. I think this looks better than original old Basenotes did anyway! It does the job.

    That's what I would like to know. This site is already slower than the previous new site...don't like it. If this site gets the regular 'clogs' it used to have..not sure I'd wanna spend too much time here. It already seems 'cloggy' by running a bit slow.

    I get that this site is for the discussion of all things fragrance, but i do not see the harm in having an "off topic" forum. Am i missing something?

    Love having the vintage Basenotes back! Re formulation wasn't kind to Basenotes, Lol. Dated or not, this layout is much easier and user friendly. I'll even accept the slower response just to have our old layout back. Great job & thanks for listening to everyone who missed the original layout.

    I miss the ability to read a few words of the last post on each thread, and who posted it, so I can decide whether to go there or not. Now I have to open the thread and go all the way to the bottom just to read whether I would have been interested.

    However, running this website is no easy task for Grant and his team and I thank them for this. He is doing what he feels best for everyone, given parameters or cost, time, etc. and so, solider on Grant and the Basenotes team and thank you!!!!!!!!!

    kalli, didn't you notice the state of the directory on the huddler site? It never got updated because the functionality wasn't any good. And Basenotes is nothing but a glorified chat site if the directory doesn't work.

    Off topic seemed to be generating a huge amount of traffic compared to the actual fragrance forums. When I would check new posts before it seemed like about 90% of posts were off topic. I'd have to scroll down a good ways before finding a post that's actually about fragrance.

    I come here to discuss perfume. I would much rather have a slightly outdated but fit for purpose Basenotes than a modern generic one that can handle enormous amounts of off topic chit chat.

    If cutting out all the off topic traffic makes the old site run faster, that's enough reason to do it. I'm happy to see it go.

    This is great Aside the missing Huddler data and the pics of frags in the database, I only have one "issue" and I wouldn't call it that - entire list of all frags and how many times they were worn by the entire community. For now I really like the look and the feel of it! Great work and do continue the evolution of the site!

    You're all doing a good job, and thanks for your dedication to keeping the site running as well as possible.

    I have just two minor quibbles about the new/old site:
    - Speed: I'm hoping that this will improve once all the data is reloaded, as I'm really missing the zip of the Hudder site at the moment.
    - Visuals: The old site is so much busier. It's actually harder to locate the posts themselves amongst all the other stuff going on. The older site was slicker, airier and more legible. Are there plans to introduce different 'skins', so that we can to some extent customize its appearance?

    No small amount of thanks to the mod team - you guys have been through a lot and are still friendly helpful and full of fragrant enthusiasm. Virtual hugs, pats on the back and chinking glasses all round

    I am really in the minority I guess but I didn't use the directory much, mainly cause it didn't seem up-to-date(?)and often couldn't find frags I was looking for. True with either this layout or Huddler. I would start to add to my wishlist/test list/wardrobe and get stumped cause I couldn't find some frags there. I am not sure of the functionality to a t from this layout as opposed to the other, cause I guess I didn't spend much time there. I think I did notice a lack of note pyramids on Huddler? And no search by note? Not sure. I'd love a directory that was up to date(I haven't been on the directories much, like I said, so I don't know if it's been more updated as of late). I would read reviews though. If getting rid of the off topic threads means more of an updated directory, well that would be pretty cool I guess.. but I'd still like ot topics too.

    The traffic over on the FDF is all but non-existent except for the SOTD thread...so the off-topic forums were a nice bonus..but that's just me. Others may see it differently.

    I do, however, like the random button. I already added one on my test list cause of that thing.

    Can all Aventus threads be deemed 'off topic'?. j/k.

    There is a smiley button at the top of the text box for answering posts. It will take you through a quickie pop-up to a more full-featured one, with all the smileys. But the thing I like is that I can just type them inline, such as <colon> b e e r <colon>, which gives . So just type the abbreviations and you can really move along fast.

    I'm really happy to see the old sotd and drobe. And as someone pointed out, it's good to see Basenotes Green again.

    I know that a lot of love goes into this site. You can tell.

    Thank you, to everyone who has had a hand in creating and running this.

    Running terribly slow for me so far...hope things smooth out shortly. I will miss browsing "Off Topic" as well. Hopefully all the wardrobe information makes a seamless transition.

    Slow for me, too. I've already been adding a bunch of things to my wardrobe here, so hopefully the merger will respect all that newer information.

    IT'S GOOD TO HAVE A WARDROBE AGAIN.

    It's possible to sign up for varying frequencies or disable them in our settings, kumquat.
    Go to 'settings' - 'My Account' (in sidebar) - 'General Settings' - 'Messaging & Notification', where there is a drop down that may be altered, then save changes at the bottom of the page.
