Extrasolar Planets Encyclopaedia redesigned

Extrasolar Planets Encyclopaedia

The website has had an extensive redesign, maybe this has something to do with the lower frequency of updates recently?

I'm sure I'll get used to it, I did quite like the old-school nature of the previous design though...

Goodness...

And yeah... I did enjoy the simplicity of the original design. It looks a bit cleaner now on individual planet pages. Multi-planet systems are now shown with planets as rows instead of columns, making the pages a bit better organised, in my opinion.

The query option has improved a lot.

I agree. Confirmed, unconfirmed and disproven planets all together and no apparent update for recent discoveries too. Evil or Very Mad

Plus harassing continuous request to activate Adobe Acrobat, uselessly.

So far, no good.

Like I said, the search option is a big improvement:

unconfirmed planets: "controversed" IN detection
confirmed planets: NOT "controversed" IN detection

Haven't figured out how to filter the update field, though. But you can always download the list and use Excel or OpenOffice Calc or whatever. Wink

I'm pretty happy about the signs of VO stuff, having proper machine-readable access to the data will be useful.

Now it's much simpler. Confirmed and unconfirmed planetr were separated Smile.

Perhaps the planet count in bold could be better noticed.

I don't see much problems, expect that the tables should be more distinct. Now the very thin lines make they somewhat unclear. Otherwise, all the original information is there almost in the original format now with extra functionality.

IMHO it is nice to see the service modernized. Smile

Honestly, I hate the new look. It's ugly.

I'm sure we'll all get used to it in a few weeks time. If you're like me, the fact that you check it about once an hour will make the transition easier.
