Hello THMF,

We just released the new design of www.thehendonmob.com as a member community I'm expecting a lot of remarks, complain, congratulations. I know that changes is never easy and always subject to critics. Fair enough, I understand.

I just wanted to share with you, why we did this first "face lift" and that will not be the only one in the next few months. When GlobalPokerIndex and myself, acquired TheHendonMob it is because its the best and largest poker database website, as well a strong poker community. I bought it, to invest in it. Because I believe in a brighter future.

To prepare this future, we needed to change some design, revamp a bit the website, to accommodate some sponsors, some new features, new content, etc ... that will be rolled-over soon.

See it as a first step of a long journey, and with only one goal : player's benefit. Player beeing a community member of THMF or a visitor of THM. Don't forget that beside the forum, the significant part of the 4 millions visitors per year are coming for the database.

Beside spending resources in the forum, having few Leagues partners (FullTilt & Pokerstars) and having more benefits for THMF, we are spending a lot of resources and money into the database to reach another level.

Quick overview of small new features :

- On the player profile page
- you will find the GPID (the global poker ID) that will become the industry standard, in the next couple of years.
- you can see directly the rankings (country, all time and GPI) of the player
- you can see the number of ITM (results)
- you can see how many people are following this player
We gonna add soon more content about our player database.

Some others small database/rankings features have been updated as well, including new rankings :

- Most followed players (on HendonMob)
- Most popular players (on HendonMob), per year and per month since 2008.
- Rankings per US states as well

On the homepage, you have the "Country" ranking based on where you connect, and the State ranking if you are in US.

The new search feature allows you to search faster and directly no the top of the page.


We are going to promote/expose more the forum as well, thanks to our sponsoring of POkerstars/FullTilt, allowing TeamPro and Ambassadors to interact more in the forum.

You will like or doesn't like colors or design, doesn't really matter, what counts is what we will bring to the forum and to the 4 millions visitors of HendonMob Smile

Thanks for your support,

Alex.

(ps : we spend a lot of time on the database, meaning we need to spend more time on the forum design too Wink )

I like it actually. Especially like the added touches to the database and agree it looks a lot sharper.

Very standard now. The old look was just that ... very old. However, it did have a different feel to it which i sort of liked but no-one ever likes change to much.

Thumbs up from me.

Just a quick note... poll [results] don't seem to display very well at the moment - may be something that needs looking at Question Mr. Green
