It's alright, innit?
Anyone remember what it used to look like?
and the completely redundant automatic vote thing.
the rest i'm used to.
it makes it hard to find old threads or things
that this layout is still generally a bit of a step backwards IMO. The old background was better that clinical white. The font is too small still and gives me actual eye strain! The logo isn't as clear and striking as the previous one, and there are more annoying ads and less links to content from the front page. I read less articles now than I used to (the old three column layout was perfect for browsing), and I'd bet the hits on reviews in general (apart from heavily featured ones) has gone down. The way new content is linked is now LESS useable than before.
The search facilty is better now though, and the ticker on the left turned out to be useful, and it's wide enough again.
Sorry to those involved in the redesign, I know you don't like negativity, but you know. That's what I think.
having only just got a macbook, i agree the fonts are a fair bit smaller and it looks kinda different than on a pc. however so are a lot of sites, so might, like, yuhknow, change my settings.
you'd be surprised about the hits to be honest.
and also more people seem to be getting the records we really like and discussing things that wouldnt usually get many comments, than previously.
I don't wanna change my settings internet wide because this is the only site I have the problem with, y'know?
I can't really remember what it looked like before.
I agree with Brainlove on the articles thing though, much less obvious when new stuff has gone up
still prefer the old.
i just dont think it needed doing at all!
