Brand new Lemon Amiga website
 
Fellow EAB members, on behalf of Kim Lemon I would like to inform you, that:

A brand new and greatly improved Lemon Amiga website has just been launched!

Actually I never thought this would happen. It's been an amazing 15+ years since I built the Lemon Amiga website and a lot has happened since then, both technically and in life in general.

To sum it up, all I wanted to say is - check out the new Lemon Amiga website and enjoy. :)


Keep retro gaming,

Kim Lemon

I preferred the old one, looks like this one requires Javascript.

dreadnought 10 January 2021 21:24

The "mobile first" got me worried, many such transitions are quite awful, but I must admit you guys did a stellar job here. It looks just like the old one :great

Great work!

There was also this thread by Octopus66 on the same topic:

But since this one has more details, I have locked Octopus66's thread and pointed to here. Sorry Octopus66, I believe it is the better option. Feel free to PM me if you want to discuss about it.

Of course! I was surprised there was no official post earlier today. But I realise now it was due to the post passing through moderation.

How do I do this?
Top list also stays on CDTV model on my PC no matter which option I choose from dropdown..?

kaffie 11 January 2021 19:28

Very nice. Always had a soft spot for the site and have been there many times over the years. Don't think I ever was a member though.

Which browser do you use?

Delete LemonAmiga cookies, that will solve this.
