Nice work, guys  ;) I really like it......but I'm gonna miss good old Achtoon Baby   :'(  although there hasn't been any updates recently I used to go through it on and off....is there any chance I could get to some old stuff?

You can still go to You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login ... and at some point soon we'll be looking to hire a new Achtoonist. Was just too swamped with things when Kelly gave her notice a month ago to do anything about it.


Thanks a lot... :-* and looking forward to a new Achtoonist.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  LOVE the new site!  Really clean, crisp, and user-friendly!  I especially appreciate how much more "readable" the text is for me... with my failing (and non-correctable) eyesight, I really struggled to read the text on the old site without going through the hassles of magnifying, zooming in, etc.  What a pleasure to read everything now!  Thanks for the beautiful re-design... and for all that you guys do for the U2 fan community to keep us up-to-date and in the loop.Magnificent!

I was cruising the OTR last night and so you can imagine my surprise today when I popped in and found the new site! Whoa! Anyway you guys. Really, really great job. It doesn't seem that long ago when you launched the other site.

Nice grids & proportions, clean nav, great contemporary feel and efficient use of reading real estate. Only thing I notice is that the top right quote is hard to read with the soundbyte graphic in the b/g.

Thanks you guys. I don't want to even pretend to speak for all of us out here who appreciate all you do.

Maybe I can buy you a beer in Chicago.

While I certainly appreciate all the work Matt McGee and the many volunteers do for this indispensible site, my fingers are crossed that Steve Averill and Shaughn McGrath never get any creative inspiration for it.

Nicely Done - a design that should appeal internationally!

I have found an error.

I can't see the words in the subjects without scrolling over them. I'm using Mac OS X 10.5.7 & Sarari 4.0.2

Optima -- in the "welcome" message there, please click the link for the CSS file, then hit REFRESH while looking at the CSS file, then go back and refresh the home page.

:-) I should hope so. You were stuck seeing the old CSS file.

I like the new look. One suggestion would be that for any links that open up non-atu2.com websites, that you could have them open up  in new windows. That way you always would have a window of atu2.com live without having to hit the back button on your browser many times.
