Welcome to the NEW CPA!

    Notice anything different? :D

    Welcome to the new CPA! Nothing about us has changed, but after having the same website layout for over a year, it's time for something different.

    And to make this event even more amazing :))), I'm unveiling some new features.
    1. Java Based IRC Chat - ties directly into our channel on NewNet (#type-random). Now there's no need for you to download Pirch or mIRC!
    2. More replies listed - if you click the "[more]" link it will show you the last 25 article replies. (Not much of a feature, I know)

    Lastly, although it's not in place yet, the CPA will be offering free web-based email to all its members. Your email address will be whatever@cpa-mail.net. However, this isn't quite setup yet. I'll make an announcement when it is.

    Anyway, enjoy! And please provide feedback, comments, and bug reports in the "Testing Forum"!

    Hate to say
    it but I frankly
    can't stand

    As if blue/
    white didn't
    suck, (down
    with U/W!)
    but I have to
    try to read
    because a
    bar to my
    right and
    another to
    my left is
    all my
    space. And
    to make it
    worse, the
    board's lill'
    light bulbs
    look like
    from Micro-
    soft's Clip-
    Art gallery.

    I nixed http://www.
    because of
    frames and
    I am not go-
    ing to put
    up with them

    Hmm...I re-
    member, way
    back when I
    first showed
    up here, I
    the frames at
    BD, and

    assured me
    that would

    Guess liars
    are more common
    than I thought.

    *Turns gamma
    down to 0.2*
    Ahhh! I can
    allmost see

    ...anone know
    of a good
    Magic site
    I can set my
    default site
    to? Hopefully
    one that won't
    betray me?

    I gotta agree with Hetemti the white blue kinda looks bad. And now the lightbulbs looks screwed. But it is your site. Whatever.
  7. Zadok001 CPA Founder, Greater Good

    Umm... I'm not getting any frames here, Hetemti. At least, none I'm noticing. What's going on, exactly?

    Personally, I _love_ this design. I've had some trouble trying to jump between the CPA and other sites, and having my eyes try to burn out of my sockets. This design is more 'neutral,' and makes the CPA look more attractive as far as other sites are concerned. IMHO, this is a great color mix.

    I went to the chatroom, and accidently declined the download, and now I can't chat.

    The the blue
    things that
    ruin the first
    inch and a
    half. Those.
    I don't care
    if they aren't
    frames, they
    are just as
    big of a pain
    in the ass.

    More professional,
    eh? Guess it
    was time to
    give the

    aspect the boot.

    Besides, I'm just
    weird. I should
    frikkin LOVE
    the GLORIOUS
    opportunity to
    read down instead
    of across and
    to be annoied by
    blinding whitespace.

    And the timing...
    just for Halloween,
    we KILL the
    orange and black
    screen for
    Hospital White,
    Cubicle Grays I&II
    Emotionaly Balanced Blue!

    Now you will feel
    serene and can
    exploit your core
    with an eye
    towards productivity
    and connectivity
    as you become a
    Magic: the Gathering (tm)
    Trading Card Game

    w00t. I can
    feel the fun just
    bustin' out of
    every post.

    Look i'm sorry.I know this must have been a major effort,but well..we were happy with it before.It wasn't broke do we need to fix it?Too many things aren't right,It isn't just about fighting change.I think we found it before it was our home.Big issue for me is the color.But I don't want to see people leave because of the changes,I might be one of those If anyone cares.The more I look around the less I like it,Ed you must have put in major effort and I appreciate it, but for me personally I would prefer what we had.
  16. Firestorm Veteran CPA Member

    I think a red with black bacground and orange border would be cool.

  17. mogg bomber Veteran CPA Lurker

    Well, this isn't so bad, but I really liked the old colors better. Still, this isn't too bad and it's not like much of the site changed besides the colors.
  18. Fire Slinger Vetern CPA Member Pyromananic

    I like the setup, but not the colors.
    Black and Orange/Red looked alot better.
  19. Darsh Corrupt CPA Member

    Ed could you please, pretty please, get the posts to fit all the way across the page?
  20. Hawaiian mage CPA symbiod

    Although it's probably just that I need to get used to this... I hate change.

    I don't like the way it's gotten shorter. If anything I would of liked it wider.

    I guess the only thing I would really want to change is the white background.Make it white at the top and have it fad into black when the messages start.

    I just generally hate change. And my dragon is useless now!
