    BHW - of course.
    Home Page:
    We're running through some edits and changes to the look and feel but otherwise we're there finally with the new generation of BHW. It would be great to have your feedback and thoughts on the new platform, design, UI, UX and anything else that takes your fancy.

    Many thanks to all those, too numerous to mention here, who have contributed their thoughts and time to get us this far.

    The FINAL BETA RELEASE of BHW is here.

    Please drop a note below or start a new thread with your thoughts & feeback.

    Current passwords should get you access. Passowrd resets work to your registered emails address.

    21 March update


    We have a few final minor additions to make on the member profiles such as:

    • Migrating the thanks.
    • Avatars etc (those items that change daily) updated to current ones on day of transfer. Including but not limited to footers, avatars, footer content.
    • Title colours.

    But we'd like to release this beta acknowledging these issues, which will be resolved before go live - and look forward to any feedback.

    http://dotcom-test.nh-serv.co.uk/

    Please note our intention in this release is to create a stable base for the future of BHW to develop and build on all of the great ideas that have been listed in the Forum suggestions ad feedback section. We acknowledge areas such as the marketplace can be improved and this is the first step to achieving that.

    If you'd like to leave feedback please do so here http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/f226-bhw-beta-testers/

    29 March update

    Marketplace is now up and functioning if you spend time there it's worth checking out. The aim of this release is for a similar look and feel to the old version so there are not too many changes to contend with on the front end. This then gives us the platform to take the marketplace in the direction we've always wanted to go.

    Many thanks for all the feedback - these are some popular requests from the last week, that have now been implemented.
    User / profile names size increased.
    BHW lite template added - see bottom left corner and click on "BlackHatWorld-2015-BlackVersion" style chooser.
    Links around site to static pages now performing as expected.
    Ratings received - some of you have picked up the new option of adding ratings received. We're going to keep the thanks option but add other feedback options where thanks isn't appropriate. The button will reflect the intent of the thanks rather than just a sign of appreciation.
    Search - Please note - Search will go live when we move to the live server. Indexing millions of pages is too much of a job for the test platform.
    Custom Profile picks - Some profile picks are looking pixelated on the new platform. New profile pics will be required.
    Increased security - on go live there will be the option for 2 factor authentication on the new platform.

    5 May update

    With 11 days until go live week we're just working out the final edits. Please note BHW will be down for about 8 hours week commencing May 16th.

    17 May update

    The test site is now closed for review whilst we update the servers and prepare for the move. Thanks for all the feedback. We're looking forward to implementing much of it it over the next few months.

    We're on a completely new platform royserpa the challenges have been around keeping the current look, feel & functionality whilst moving to a totally different structure. If you only see it as a theme change then we've done our job ;)

    I like the way profiles looks when somebody replies. I think that you should add some new avatars for newer members and if there is a BHW app, it would be great! :)
