    Takes some getting used to. Is there an easy(straight forward) way to find sleepers?

    This has probably been brought up elsewhere but dollar values are no longer apparent in both the Playerlink and Player Projections. I imagine it's already being attended to. I apologize in advance if this has already been answered.

    One other thing -- and I can't stress this enough -- the type of upgrade HQ is undertaking is massive, to say the least. You have set the bar very high in terms of the standards you've afforded us over the years on several levels. The way you are currently handling our comments and all of the issues that have come up on the new HQ, deserves great appeciation. Thanks for your receptiveness to ideas and improvement suggestions, and in general, thanks for all you do.
    RIP Paco de Lucia.

    I also am having some trouble seeing what is new for the day. That may come after I use it for a while and more information is coming out daily. I also can not access forums. Looks great.

    Sure looks like you can access the forums.

    Good to hear that one of our more "change-averse" users is receptive here. Thanks for the comment, Howie.

    And yes, $ values are gone again today. We're aware and working on that.

    Welcome! This is more of a "new user" than "new site" question. Have you checked out the "Education" section at the extreme bottom right of the home page? You'll want to absorb all of that stuff... new user's guide (which I need to update to reflect the new site), Forecaster's toolbox, Glossary, etc.

    Read that stuff, ask frequent questions in these forums. Lots of helpful souls here.

    Punch List: MACK Report options; Projections on Pitching Projections only has 24 options compared to YTD 30 options. Amongst missing are ERA, DOM, BPV.

    Otherwise very exciting improvements.

    Interesting, hadn't noticed those yet. Will add to the list, thanks.

It seemed I had to scan a dozen different menus and inspect the dates on the headlines to see what was there. Not very easy or intuitive. It's one thing the old site did very well, I thought.
    I totally agree!

    Quite like the new format - good job on the transition too.

    One thing missing is the archive of the minor league rankings (just the 2012 ones there atm). Will these be ported over?

    Funny, we got tons of complaints about the old article structure. Couple of things on that:

    - we should be able to get the change made so URLs turn a different color when you've read them. That will help.
    - there's a bit of a learning curve as to how site updates work. Give it a couple of weeks and I think you'll get a rhythm. Plus you'll see headlines and recognize that you've read them.
    - I think it will get easier when we're updating daily. Starting in about 2 weeks we'll have our daily updates of 4-5 articles a day. They'll basically all be in the slideshow on the main page. That's the only place you'll need to look, if you want one-stop shopping.

    And yes, the old org reports, etc., will eventually get moved over here.

    I think this will help a lot.

    "Good to hear that one of our more "change-averse" users is receptive here. Thanks for the comment, Howie."

    Every smart business knows that the best customers are the ones who insist on high standards, but try not to be unreasonable.

    From a baseball stat website to a pizza place to a clothing store, a lot of customers walk away and never say why.

    Different here in that it's an annual opt-in, but ultimately it still applies. HQ probably has a high satisfaction level, and attrition is inevitable just to the economy, but I'm sure many just walk away each year, leaving an issue that could have been addressed but it was never noted.

    Just like the guy who stopped getting pizza at the corner joint because the waitress was obnoxious, but he never tells the owner.

    Small business is fascinating that way.

    Overall, I like the new design, an obvious improvement. My main constructive criticism is that there is a slight "washed out" look to the site. I like the way the branding colors of blue and gold are consistently used but the combination of the gradation of the blue to white and the use of gold letters provides this washed out look and makes it hard to read, at least to my 54 year old eyes. It just seems that the text is not "popping" and I find that to be a visual distraction. Just my two cents.

    Seems like a lot of advertising on the first screen. I see banner ads across the top of the page and the HQ store takes up a third of the page on the left. I did not notice it so much on my large screen monitor at home, but now that I am on the road with my laptop I find it annoying.

    Another suggestion -- a section dedicated to changing player values?

    Whose value went up the most this week, prompting a playerlink re-evaluation? And why?

    Whose value took the greatest hit?

    Like the stock market, week over week -- we could get a better feel for emerging values and the rationale behind them, rather than merely reading them in an article, where data for the most part, may have already been acted upon by owners in our leagues since it's past its freshness date and/or has already been spilled on other sources, some of which are widely-available and don't need a subscription. Free sites are killing me -- I wish most of them were like CBS. But that's for another day.
    RIP Paco de Lucia.

    Needless to say, this isn't easy. We've got more than enough to do just to clean up the stuff that's already on the site (or is supposed to be). I appreciate the creativity, but let's hold thoughts like this for a while.

    Irrational exhuberance on my part. Will be kept in check from now on, point taken.

    I'm unable to enter thr the Custom Guides area. Even though I have signed on the forums, I get a message saying that as a Rotopass member I must sign into the forums & check the "remember Me' box. I had signed in, and roamed all the forums, BUT there was no Remember Me box to check. I tried 3 times, never a Remember box

    When you log in to the forums, the 'remember me' box is immediately under the username field. Log out, you should see it when you log in again.
