    John,

    The new design looks nice. However, is it possible to update the historical library, not in format, but with a list of all the reviews/articles in each issue.

    For instance, a few weeks back I was interested in rereading wichaka's review of the Wilson Combat X-Tac. I had read it when it came out, but was looking for reference material on another issue, but had quite some trouble remembering when it was, and couldn't find it just looking at each quarter's titles. In addition X-Tac is not a search friendly term. I found it in the Fall 2010 (my how time fly's) Issue, but I would have like the search to be a little easier.

    I like the new format. It's very easy to find whats new and not too difficult to locate older articles.
    I see no problem editing an article to update or correct information in it however, there needs to be a "Last updated" date with the title then so we can tell if it has been edited. Also then it would be good to add something at the top of the article with edit notes.

    Guys, I have to personally apologize for the inconvenience. The reason being, that in the old issues (before the Summer 2011 issue), the titles were entered by me, manually, when that issue was closed. I must have somehow messed up with that particular issue (Fall 2010) and omitted the X-Tac review from the synopsis shown in the library. I guess it's safe to say that I need to go through all old issues and make sure that all reviews are entered in the synopsis. Please give me a little time and I'll deal with it.

    Regarding the last updated date, that would require some changes in the code. Again, I need some time to look into it and see if I can do it. Or to put it differently, I need to make sure that whatever code changes I'll do, won't affect our ability to upgrade the software to newer versions. If that condition is met, then the suggested change will be done.

    Again thanks for your contribution, sincerely appreciated.
