Fred, now that you are at it, could you please create SVG of all the new images?

It will be useful for developers to resize and use.

Thanks!

That horrible showcase with these style of the 90s programs ... I would remove that game screenshots to radiate more professionalism. Make an extra site for these game shots...

Unable to login (since many years). And security problems are told in my mail. I use alphasnd gmail address to take the list of problems. PM is unabled too but better is by priority level.
gmail allows screenshoots.

Could you see the mail of October, the 3th 04:10 ?
(Object prefix : << Urgent >>). There is the list of all the problems and I do not think there is more than that... (excepted design etc... that I do not look after)

I would also appreciate a login via mail address and not username. My username is a very old mail address of mine which does not exist anymore. I wonder what happens if someone tries to register with my old mail address. :D

Main page in the "features" list:

Quote:
Full unicode support


Unicode should be capitalized.

Quote:
Namespace support for easy code reuse


I don't mean to nitpick but I feel that this is misleading. I would not compare namepspaces to modules as they lack most of the features provided by this definition in other languages. Imo, it should be:

Quote:
Module scope for easy code reuse


I'm not a fan of the cityscape header and find it distracting. Have you tried using a solid color instead?

I also think that the design would benefit from some color to help break up the layout. Maybe experiment a little?

The Home / <location> part is difficult to read due to the low contrast between the <location> and the background. At least on my monitor:

The e-mail used to login to download is obtained from a different form than the one used for the bulletin board registration.

While they MAY be the same address for some users, the submission and login forms link to different databases.

Wording:
Quote:
Can I create commercial applications with PureBasic ?
Yes. Once you get PureBasic, you can do any kind of program (freeware, shareware and even commercial applications) without have to pay any extra costs to Fantaisie Software.

The portion of the text that is emphasized in the quote with bolding and underlining, 'without have to pay any extra costs' should be changed to either 'without having to pay any additonal costs' or 'without having to pay more'.

@Demivec, I'd suggest: "without payment of further fees or any royalties to Fantaisie Software."

I visited the site without being logged in. The protocol is https but it says it is not secure. I logged in and then says it is secure. Visited Announcements and says page secured, visited the forth page of comments here and says not secured. Tried to reply, turned to secure again.
