    Casinobonusestoday relaunched and rebranded to www.casinobonusesnow.com. This relaunch is the first phase with many more to come in terms of adding more features, improving the user experience, testing and learning from feedback. Running on Laravel with Redis if any geeks want to know.

    and for good measure www.AskGamblers.com has relaunched which is 2 years after their drastic redesign that has lead to numerous askgamblers clones. This latest redesign appears to be heavily focused on mobile first.

    I preferred the ASK gamblers previous site, this one feels like it's lacking, harder to navigate

    I think it's very notable that the AG homepage now has no mention of their player complaint service other than a link in the footer. To me that suggests that the new owners want to run this feature down. This was the most interesting and useful part of the site.

    I could care less even if these were in pink and hosted on servers powered by green energy.

    These are top money sites - run by offshore non (<x%) tax paying corporations - that want to crush the mid and low level competition by buying more portals.

    Agreed. My best guess would be that the complaints service is labour intensive to run so their intention is to try and depress the volume of complaints they receive. They'll lose some return traffic doing this as they'll no longer be offering as strong a service in their own rights, but they'll save on overheads and the site is still huge in traffic terms. To my mind this is a loss for players, but I understand that this group are looking to create a money making machine that they can set to autopilot.

    To me.. quite a few of the pages look thin now, thousands of pages with a few paragraphs and a snazzy title, I wonder if this will be panda'ed?

    Did notice the very thin content on AG which was a surprise. At first I thought the design was a big step back but I thought the same initially at the last one. I realize now this design was built with mobile as the core.

    No although I have some of my articles I'd like to promote more as it is more b2b. Maybe I should have at least rephrased to start a discussion on the top of design or create a poll.

    It's funny - I see links in your sig. Does that not mean you're "dropping links" with every post? Part of the incentive for affiliates to take part in forums like this is being allowed to link. While blatant spamming isn't cool, calling someone else out for a little self-promotion seems a little over the top.

    ok thanks, I'll have to test a few more times myself. Chrome for me shows nothing overlapping at all but understand more devices is possible to see problems like this
