    Design v2.0 is now live for testing

    I have activated the v2.0 design layout for people to tryout. You will not be able to post anything because I have deactivated all the registration features. If people like the new design, we can figure out if people want to test the v3.0 design I posted last night and go from there. Below is the link to the new design, let me know what you think. Please note that everything is different on the backend so you will notice some things will work differently, although not worse.

    Also note that on the top left corner of the screen, you can increase/decrease the font sizes.

    Please visit the new potential design and vote on the site if you like it or not.

    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Looks Good.

    One note though. I like being able to click on a poll on the right and being able to stay on the page I was viewing. When I clicked on the poll I was directed to a new page.

    I say if this new format makes it better and easier on your end. Go for it. The design works fine - would just take a little getting use to.

    Only one thing... you have the latest news links in the top right corner, but the font is so small I can't really read it and it kinda messes it up so it's hard to read.

    Maybe even one point bigger would help my machine and me out a little bit.

    Looks great--very clean. I agree w/ BryceC--make the news links a tad bigger and it will be ready to go live. :)

    It looks nice, except it doesn't display correctly in Firefox 1.0.7 or 1.5. It appears to be a problem with the width of my windows being too narrow. The main text in the center flows into the objects on the right. If I expand my windows it is correct, but then my windows are huge.

    Comp: I use Firefox too, and I haven't noticed that unless I make mine what I consider to be very small. Might just have to break down and resize that window.

    I use Firefox and Opera exclusively so I will test to see what size it starts causing a problem and adjust the code a little bit so it wraps more. I can also make it so it only wraps to a certain extent before it would just put scroll bars on the bottom of your browser window. I'm getting away from the current layout that is all done by tables because it doesn't render and scale as well. The new design I'm playing with will allow me to add a bunch of new features without sacrificing the interface.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    I may also eventually try to get it so the user can choose from the three layouts and use what they feel most comfortable with.

    I like the rounded look of the new site... and how the black bar turns red when you scroll over it's corresponding link. But I do like how some of the features work on this site better... which may just because you haven't completely implemented them yet on the beta... so if you're talking just looks... I like the new one, the look of the forum part I'm not huge on, and also I like the current sites layout of the text on the front page. At first... I thought I might like the two column postings... however... with the narrow space for text... it just means more scrolling while reading a particular column. Basically, with my opinion... I like the current layout, with the look of the front page of the beta site.
