As you may have noticed, we have completely redesigned the whole site. With this new design it is easier to navigate as it is much more intuitive than the previous one. It also loads faster and has a bigger font for those of you that were complaining about the really small font that we had on most of the site until now. This layout is also a bit wider (1024px instead of 960px) which means there is more room for the content and larger images.
After numerous considerations, we have decided to retire the CosmoBC Community social network, since all of the site’s features are accessible to everyone even if they are not logged it. So no need for people to login and have profiles, unless they are writers for our blogs.
To all our American readers and supporters, we would like to wish you a great and memorable Independence Day celebration! And enjoy (safely) the amazing fireworks shows! 😛 Signed: the CosmoBC.com Team.

Work on the CosmoBC Community has been delayed because we have focused more on our blogs instead. Aside from posting content more often, we also made some improvements in their design. We made them more user friendly and less cluttered.
We also added the the Google +1 button, which is a new social bookmarking and recommendation service from Google. So feel free to +1 us! 🙂
Our flash games section and car galleries have been retired and further work on them will be discontinued. You can now read about cars and games in the CosmoBC TechBlog.
We have a few more upgrades planned for the blogs as well as a few site-wide modifications concerning the general layout. Afterwards we are planning a complete redesign of the CosmoBC Community. All this will conclude our Beta v0.3 phase of development.
As you may have seen, CosmoBC.com has recently undergone a few changes. The most visible one is our new header. It is now much simpler and takes less space.
There has also been some changes in the CosmoBC Community. Some bugs have been fixed and the community navigation bar has been simplified for easier access to all the most important features of the site.
More changes will be coming in the next few weeks, which will ultimately lead to Beta v0.3!
As you may have noticed, we have recently released our new footer design, followed by a new toolbar on our blogs.
The footer allows for better navigation between all our blogs, sections and features. The toolbar enables users to interact even more with our blogs. They can share, subscribe to RSS, become fan, tweet, etc. right from the toolbar. There are also a few other options on the toolbar that enable better browsing through the blogs’ content.
All this, brings us much closer to Beta v0.3! More features are coming soon, so stay tuned!
As you may have noticed we added “Tweet Buttons” to all our blogs. That way you can ReTweet any article from our blogs with one click!
What’s Next? First of all, we are completely redesigning our blogs’ appearance. We are also adding lots of new options, widgets and features, of which the “Tweet Buttons” are only the first. Then we will redesign the CosmoBC Community as well as the site’s main homepage. At that point the transition from Beta v0.1 to v0.2 will be complete.
