Destinational Wordplay

The Times They Are A-Changin'!
You may have noticed that we've given a slight facelift to Poet Share this week. Trying to minimize loading times so that you can get the most out of the forums, we've switched to a text menu at the top and removed some images here and there that we didn't really need. With a new header pic and a redesigned portal page, we hope it isn't too much of a visual change for you; you should notice the pages loading more quickly, at least. If you have any suggestions, send me (Jamie) a PM and I will read every one of them with sincere interest!
