    Well done and thank you for not going the route of so many other sites which go for a total change leaving most users unhappy.

    I don't really like it. I think I'll just start going directly to the forums/news section instead of the mainpage. It's so bright, boxey, and not very attractive at all. Personally, I think it's a step back. It also just seems a little washed out really. That could just be my monitors though (Secondary is a bit darker than my main though).

    I also like not having the borders on the side, but it's not a rejection though as a lot of sites do it. Just a dislike in general (damn quirks of mine!).



    To each their own though.

    It's funny how much the star system sticks out in the comments.

    people were complaining that there was not enough visible difference between the posts, now the stars will act as "separator"

    Feeds are going to the front page, not the articles FWIW.

    Like the comment layout, dislike the solid white background/font combo. It would be nice to see something break everything up and make it look less congested and easier to read.

    Whatever does or does not change, congrats on the relaunch! :toast:

    I approve

    I like this, it's almost the same interface but prettier.

    Not bad. But the "Today´s reviews" section is more unclear now...

    Wow, i'll take some time to get accustomed with the new design.

    Background seems too bright and the font is a tad harder to read.

    The new design looks clean and tidy but it would be smart to use the width of our monitors if possible, like autostretch?

    Do a poll: do you use 4:3 Ratio screens? 0% :roll:

    Good:
    Very light and shiney (does it load faster?)

    Bad:
    No seperator between news post on the front page, not visible enought?
    a little hard to read, even beeing on 1080p background is bright as heck!

    this "comments under news" looks funny because there are all the poster name i know, but with just stars on their names :D a little too empty a epn-i-s has been cut off!

    Looks good except the font, my eyes hurt from trying to read anything.

    Needs a bit more contrast and the fonts are too skinny! It's like raz0r bladez on mAh eyez :p

    I'm using 125% zoom in Chrome on my 1920x1080 monitor.

    On my 2560x1600, I'm using 200%, but it sure does look better.

    Bah who uses the front page anyway for other reasons than to bring in some ad revenue? BTW, the lettering looks sort of thin on 1280 x 1024 (17 inches).

    Thank god, someone redesigned their site and it doesn't look and function like absolute garbage for once. I was starting to think web developers the world over had completely forgotten what the hell they were doing...
