Agree with you, but I think an even more basic problem is that although it may have been necessary to bring the mechanics of the website up to snuff, the finished product was compiled by someone who has no knowledge of what the original SN was about or what the members want to get from it.On the possitive side I like the simplier way of adding photos to the gallery along with the description but this revised method stiill has bugs.
1) Text limited to 4 lines removing much of the history on merchant ship entries.
2) No position for date photo was taken
3) No position for location of photo.
4) No position for photo source
Also on the possitive side I like the dark mode for the site much more relaxing on the eyes.
