Not showing all the information on the upright screen and having to rotate your screen may be common on some sites but that doesn't make it good. Car Jackings are common now but that doesn't make them good ! But you should not have to go back to the upright position just so you can watch a full screen replay ! I understand that an upgrade was needed to keep up with changing technology but I would have preferred if they could have stuck to the old look and layout of the old site.
    In house could mean rather than hiring contractor they paid employees? Could be wrong but I seem to recall a couple jobs for programmers being advertised earlier in the year.

    Haven't used it on my mobile yet but if easier to use that will be handy.

    I have a new computer with plenty of grunt but since the new website was introduced it is very slow to load up, I hope this does not continue. I am sure it is not a problem with my PC.

    After about race 8 I was checking fields again for Wagga and it was a lottery as to whether the prior races were showing the fields or the results.

    I personally would prefer it if there was a Fields page that continued to be just that even after the race has been run

    Brendan, the new mobile site is a big improvement on the old one. Just a few bugs that they are working on. I was using the desk top version on my phones for many years . It worked very well on phones but required some zooming in to read properly. Pity we couldn't have the new mobile site and the old desk top site together.
    Don't die wondering !

    Has everyone noticed how with the failed no whip rule and the new website that there was zero consultation with participants/users ? It would have been nice to be told what would be disappearing and what would be added to the new site ! Were we asked what were the best features of the old site and what parts needed improvement ? No ! I don't count being given a preview of the new site and being asked for feedback as consultation because all the decisions had already been made. Just seems to be the way now ! Seems they have learned little from the industry meetings with participants.
    I know that the people developing the new site are trying their best and are actually contacting people who are having issues . I have no issues with them, they seem to be doing a good job. Even Microsoft launch products with many problems. It's whoever keeps making decisions with no consultation that is our industries biggest problem !
    Don't die wondering !

    Anyone else experience the loss of the main menu bar? If this is meant to be, how do we access things like Stewards Reports and Horse Search now?
