As I mentioned the other week, I've been working on a new-look Brickset for the last 6 months or so. Work is complete  and now I would like you to test it before it goes live in a couple of weeks.
The entire UI has been rewritten from the ground up and has been designed by a professional web designer whose brief was to make it 'LEGO-like' but to avoid all the usual clichés of bricks and plates and so on. I took his design and re-coded every page to fit within it.
You may recall that I also mentioned the other day that 30% of Brickset's traffic now originates from mobile devices: tablets, phones and so on. To better serve this growing group of users, the new site utilises a responsive design that looks good and works well on all devices. I've personally tested it on an iPhone, iPad, HTC One, Nexus 7 and a Surface Pro and I'm confident that it will behave on whatever device you use.
I've taken the opportunity to make some major improvements which are too numerous to list here but I'm sure, in time, you'll find and hopefully appreciate them. I'm retiring a number of features in order to better concentrate on the core functionality of the site. You'll find a list of these when you click on the image or link below.
So what I'd really like you to do, is to test it on whatever device you use and let me know what you like, what you don't, what features you miss and, most importantly, if you find anything that doesn't look right or work properly. I've created a feedback form for this purpose which is linked to below.
I'll be very happy to receive positive feedback but equally I want to know what you don't like: it's okay to say that it sucks, but please tell me why you think it does.
As an incentive to encourage you, I'm going to hold a prize draw: everyone that leaves feedback via the form will be entered into the draw to win a handful of polybags including those the LEGO CEE team sent me a while ago. I have a garage-full I need to shift so there'll be 10 prizes of a half-dozen or so polybags each.
So, head on over to the welcome page on the new site, take a look around, then let me know what you think. The new site uses the same database as this one so you can change your collection, comment, write reviews, etc., but note that due to the way the data caching works, changes made on one site may not be visible on the other for a few minutes. It's nothing to worry about though.
Finally, do please note that although the site is functionally complete ready for testing, it will of course be subject to continuous improvement in the coming months, so if a feature is missing that you desperately need, chances are it can be added at a later date.
 Validation of the markup still needs to be done, I'll be doing this while you're testing, and I need to give it all one final thorough test myself.
