    Bigger pictures and a nice top display of the most recent entries (isn't it?), that's cool! Must get used to the new form of the magazine... but the most popular as head of every section is a bit confusing as there are sometimes very old entries...
    And does it mean that the new camera revies, locations, tisters, competitions, etc... will be published only in these sections or will they all appear in the news? As it's easier to have one chronological overview of all new publications..
    Well, I'll have a preciser browse through the new form of the magazine and then let you know again what I think, these are just my very first impressions by discovering it... just a bit confused... ;)

    Also a bit confused, and as vicuna says I would put on top the newest news instead of popular. And on popular I would go for the popular of the month... a news published one yer ago, even if it was popular it is not news anymore. Also, although my suspicion is that you are already working on that, I am missing the map in the Location section and the list of films and camera reviews (it was really useful to check on the list the reviews of cameras/films). Just did a quick check... and I hope to see the walls in the Homes (I like that there are different formats for different photo formats).

    Oh yes, and the text display in the entries, even if it's a clearer and bigger typo (that's good), gives a strange impression by this big indentation to the right... there's a lot of empty space on the left of the page....

    just found the reason for the most popular articles being so old – the timespan was set for way too long (my fault) – will be fixed soon!

    i like the layout alot, nice and clean, not sure about having the next article before the comment section. there is also alot of gaps between everything like the title tags and photos. not sure bout the "commented by " i think i liked it the old way w/ the user name first, it was easier to see who posted, but ill get used to it.

    I'm looking for the place where all the latest magazine entries are published in chronological order... did I miss it? Or does it mean that we should have a look at every different section to know what's new in the competitions, review of cameras or films, locations, tipsters.... Popular entries are cool, but an overview of all latest magazine entries would be cool too :) And the complete film reviews list/camera reviews list was a great feature too...

    I agree with @vicuna i'm all so missing latest magazine entries from all sections in one place. And most popular section entry 's located at the top of latest entry's really makes no sense. When i go to section, the first thing what i would like to see there is latest entry's of the section

    After browsing a bit and get used to the new magazine, I can say that you made a great job: much more pictures in great format (and not only little previews), clearer text, the new lifestyle section, all this is great.
    A suggestion: when clicking on the magazine head link, there should be something more visible about the most recent articles in every section, as I fear to miss something new published in this or this section. There are a lot of informations in this new mag and something to have an overview of all new entries would be great....
    keep on the great Job LSI! :)

    I really like the "what we are looking for right now" feature and the new competition submission form is really GREAT!! But I saw this competition submit function in the 2 last locations (didn't check if it was for every location) and was surprised that I "could submit for this competition" in a location...

    To add something about the new competition submit form: would be cool to see the shots the user previously submitted (like in the old form) as with so many comps i don't even remember exactly what I already submitted in this or this one... And I noticed the "direct upload" possibility for the comps, didn't that disapear sometime ago because of the need to previously upload and tag all your submitted shots?

    I'm running into a lot of broken links so far. (page does not exist, etc.) Also, I tried to submit to a rumble and it wouldn't let me, the deadline ended before the bug was fixed. Also agree with some of the previous posts mentioned..."miss the film and camera review list"

    The top headlines look nice but I think it needs some polishing still. Hope you can bring back some of the useful stuff like the review lists.

    I'm with vicuna. We need to be able to see what's new in all the sections in one place. I was also trying to find the page for the 'publish a new album w 30 pics' challenge to check on the deadline, and had to give up. Couldn't find it in the sections, and searching came up with 180 articles (most of which were several years old) that I didn't have the stamina to flip through. It's a pretty recent post, so it ought to be easy to find.

    @plainjane but the Magazine Cover DOESN'T give us what's new each day from all sections!!! For instance I'd like you to point out to me where on the Magazine Cover I'll find today's Tipster of the Week!! I'm really getting annoyed and frustrated at this point - where before I only had to load the Magazine Cover page to keep up to date with what's going on, I now have to click and scroll down 6 times to keep up with what's new in the sections I'm most interested in. The result: Before, I'd check in several times a day, now I'll check in once at the most. Before, I'd see articles from all sections, now I'll only see the sections I have submissions in + competitions.

    well, the idea about sections is very cool, but it was a single address since long time ago where all the feed could be read. also, it was a bless just to get in and read about ANYTHING without clicking on anything more. so far, now there are kinda columns and there is no one consolidated page. and it hurts (please correct me if I'm wrong).

    I agree with @eggzakly and @breakphreak, I'm not getting used with this new confusing mag, too much different sections to click with no general overview.... The only way to know what's new in all sections is to look at the tiny "most recent articles" of the main page and it's kind of frustrating...
    The magazine cover does list:
    - the most recent news: but this is not all the new magazine entries...
    - the most popular analogue lifestyle & lomoamigos: why associate these 2 and why only most popular? And since the re-launch, there was nothing new there so you always see the same thing...
    - far down of the page, all together and only as a list, the most popular locations, most popular reviews & tipster, upcoming events & competitions and today events & competitions (written in red, adds to confusion with red or blue things written, the need to change color of the text shows that all this is not clearly organized...)
    well, all this is not very clear, only text lines, no pictures for these sections, gives me the impression that they're less important.... but in fact for us lomographers, the reviews, locations, tipsters, competitions are one of the most appreciated features of the site!
    And to finish, want to point out again that the text structures of the entries with the big empty space on the left is a bit disturbing... and also that now the locations are anonymous posts... the name of the author doesn't appear anymore...

    Hope to see some changes to have a clear new magazine, keep on the great work LSI ! :)
