Some of you were already aware of the major update coming up. I thought it would be fair to let everyone know what the plans are and more importantly when we plan to make it happen.

Travellerspoint has been in need of some love in the design department. As you can imagine, for a site this size, it is a rather large task. We are planning to relaunch the new design to coincide with the May 1st CSS Reboot.

I have detailed the challenges we face on my profile there.

So, chalk it up in your calendars, let everyone know you're unavailable for the day, arrange a baby sitter even. This will be a big update and we'll do all we can to make it one of the most exciting days in the Travellerspoint year. Christmas will come early

On a side note: this does not include the blog functionality discussed in another thread. I don't want to get your hopes up about that just yet. It still requires some testing and bug fixing.

The logo can use a refresh

What? I like the logo! The new one is okay, I guess. It'll take some getting used to.

From what I have hard through the grapevine - you will be able to customize some things... But, you know what they say about rumors...

MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'M FINALLY WIRELESS!!!!! RSS feeds - here I come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I told the installer that I needed to be connected and he wasn't going to escape until it was working! I explained that TP had new upgrades coming to a monitor near me soon and that I refused to miss out on all the fun. I also explained that his life was in my hands... (He pretended to look amused and sympathetic at the same time.)

Isa hands out rounds of martinis and chocolate in celebration of her new found freedom! It's the small things in life that are rewarding!! ;);););););)

Bring on the upgrades! I'm ready!

A little birdie tells me the long awaited, anticipated and discussed 'edit' button might finally make an appearance ;) But hey, who listens to a birdie!

Greg, did you see the new logo already? It's not that different, and I think it's a step up, but I guess some things might take some time to get used to...

I'll stop now before I give too much away...

To answer the comments. It's not really a new logo, just presented slightly differently. Personally, it fills me with pride to look at it. But I can understand things can take some time to get used to.

The navigation currently is not so bad, but it can always be better. Some common problems are finding a user or finding a user's blog. And navigating to the photo gallery is not as easy as it should be; we had to drop it from the top due to the lack of space - the new layout will fix that issue by moving the primary navigation to the left.

Hmm, after screenshot? I guess I could post one. Though seeing it at that size may not do it much justice. In some ways I prefer to wait for the full reveal ;) What do you think Sam? Post a screenshot?
