As you've probably heard by now, this site will be relaunching under the name Line Of Action on November 24th. With the new name comes an all new look and totally rebuilt drawing tools that incorporate many of the features you've been hoping for for years.
Last week, we took a look at what's in store for the drawing tools themselves. This week, I wanted to offer a peek at the new look of the site.

Special attention has been paid to making it easier to find and update information about your own account -- while logged in, links to your account and profile information will be visible both in the side bar, and in a new menu in the top navigation.

We've also added a new forum called Support & Suggestions, which should help to keep the Shop Talk forum clear for friendly chit chat. Plus, it will be easier for us to immediately see and address any problems you're experiencing or ideas that you have.
The entire site will now (finally) fit on mobile. We've added some quick icons at the top that will let you quickly navigate to the drawing tools and to the forum without even having to click to open the full site menu:
I'm so excited to be able to share the new site with you. Just 14 days left until relaunch!
