MotoringFile 1.1

Over the course of the next several weeks we'll be doing some refining of the site in terms of design and organization. As you may have guessed we're obsessed with design, simplicity, and usability at MotoringFile so we've be working in that vein to improve the site. In fact we've already been working on both the front and back-end of the site over the last couple weeks and you may have noticed a several changes already.

  • We've finally removed the incredible long list of clubs links from the front page. It'll live exclusively on the links page from now on. As much as we like to support local MINI clubs from around the world keeping the list on the front page has just become too big of a burden in terms of usability.
  • All quoted content will now show up in light grey with a left vertical rule to distinguish it MotoringFile content.
  • We've altered the border around the site in order to set off the content and photos a bit more. We'll probably continue tinkering with this for a few weeks.

And we've got more improvements on the way! As always if you have any suggestions for the site feel free to post them here or contact us directly.

Finally we'd like to thanks everyone who has visited over the last week. You've not only given us countless daily statistical records but also allowed us to test our new back-end coding. Despite the huge number of daily visits we've seen we're actually using less server resources than before.
