Anywhooo thats not really important. Dave/Chris, I love all the sites including the commercial one. If you change it and make the layout more traditional/boring I wont be able to find anything! Its pretty straight forward but still has the personal non-glitzy commercial feel that makes it look like an enthusiasts page - which it is. Just like this site its 'speakers/drivers by fanatics, for fanatics'.

Once pages become too slick they look like they contain no information because everything is immediately at hand. The joy if looking around (as if a shop) is removed

Yes, a very nice side effect from the modification process, I was very pleased to find that there is some latitude for colour with the A6P, and FFxx5wk (the grey is an additional layer, the cones are white on the backside.

Well, I'd like to make one suggestion. It would be to have a page where it says: "Free plans" then a list under according to whatever criteria like dimensions, brand of drivers...

As usual, I found it was pointless to even make a comment that the site was "weird". Because then I was asked to comment and once I did, my comments were misinterpreted as bashing then told I needed meds...

No one said you were bashing. The comments were more along the lines that you wanted a lot from a (very) small business that made a tremendous amount free material and information available to the community, because you wanted everything handed to you.

Whether true or not, ungrateful and lazy are words that come to mind. Then, in response to a simple, genuine request, you chose not to give your name. You were the one that said you could be calm for months then flip out. What does that sound like? You could have simply said you'd rather not give your name, given just a first name, or made something up.

You started the whole thing by coming out of nowhere (OT) in a thread with "why isn't your site like and Amazon store?" That question could easily be handled with a PM. See my first paragraph.

Finally, the section that says "Box Plan Library", that also lets you go straight to plans for a given manufacturer isn't enough? See my first paragraph.

In case you didn't notice, some of us use our real names and sign our posts, or at least who we are is widely know. Others choose to hide behind often rather senseless handles and probably anonymous servers.

Dave's store is fun to get to! Drive down goat trail, turn at empty Mac cases, get eaten by over friendly dog. ;-)

Bob


alternatively was "and the horse y'all rode in on pardner"

did you first fail the 2002 or so version of "we love our president, don't we - now think very carefully" litmus test?

best of all was "you need to choose your friends better"

yeah, a lotta history

Using your real name often makes you think before letting your fingers run riot on the keyboard.
