Doesn't have RSS yet. Haven't been conviced that we need it. If I really must, I will make it happen. There are a few behind the scenes bits and bats to do before we go live and wer are stiull in beta testing but if there is a compelling need for RSS we will look into it.

Similarly, all other suggestions are appreciated.

We will also eventually look at the forum and bring it onder the new domain.

What do you mean? We're not go with the site yet. A couple more weeks before going live. I still have all the SEO xml stuff to polish.

RSS implies you read other blogs. You've got eureferendum, what else is there?

Can you make it scale to the size of the browser window? On my large screen there are large blank spaces each side of the screen.

Hold down "control" and move your mousewheel.

We kept the default scale just so it stays as close to the old one as possible.

I take it that all these changes are because google have done evil and have gone all european.

e.g. blogspot.co.uk or even horror of horror's blogspot.fr

Not really. We've been meaning to do this for some time but now that Google is getting ever more prissy and untrustworthy, it's as good a time as any. And this way we retain ownership of everything and we have backups in useful formats and the capability to build better search functionality.

Plus it's a pet project to keep me busy when things are slow at work. Most of this code is reusuable so it's never wasted effort. I also wanted EUref to be gaster with better integration with the forum. Ever closer union as it were. That comes next.
