I think we can only see ourselves at the bottom but others can't see us.

And we should also say thank you to the EB/EK team for keeping downtime to a minimum, thereby limiting our exposure to the horrors of real life, which are why we're on EB in the first place.

I don't like it.. It's messy and looks weird..

#21 mel43

Posted 27 July 2013 - 03:24 PM

I don't like it either but I'm sure I'll get used to it.

The mobile version is much tidier. Can't quote though?

Thanks EB team - well done on getting it all up and running.  Am very appreciative that you've invested the time and money in giving us a better experience.
