Shiny, shiny. Good work!

Welcome, welcome to Escapist 3.0, you have chosen or been chosen to relocate to one of our finest remaining community centres. We thought so much of Escapist 3.0 that we elected to establish our wonderful and benevolent dictator administration here, in the Citadel so
thoughtfully provided by our Benefactors. I am proud to call Escapist 3.0 my home.
So whether you are here to stay, or passing through on your way to parts unknown, welcome to Escapist 3.0. It's even safer here.

Looks decent enough. Good job.
Now, off to find the flaws!

You just had to do it didn't you?
You're not Breen. He's dead. Get over it. <.<

Looking good so far, although I feel compelled to point out an error on the front page. It says this is Issue 203, when it's actually 202. Also, the columns/news section seems a little cluttered; there's no real structure that I can tell. No doubt you'll get it sorted, though.

Fantastic work guys... looks lovely. Big round of applause, and maybe even a round of drinks if you happen to be in London any time.

It's very good, and I already took a lot of inspiration from the design of the old site, so, well, I think I'm qualified to say this is a big improvement.

*clap* *clap*

I second that!

And I applaud to your hidden feature of your under construction site; I don't like poems, but I appreciate the effort.

The only bug I see so far is that the icon for Experienced Points is *excessively* handsome and witty, and might prove to be too distracting for newcomers.

Other than that, I really love the new design.

My only quandary is the Latest Posts/Hot Threads square has been shrunk significantly, and it means I can't read the treads titles without leaning forward (although that could just mean I need glasses (but I do normally lean back quite a lot in my chair)).

I had trouble making that one. I kept fawning.

Looks alright, though I will have to get used to so much being in a small space. Other than that, the layout is pretty cool and I haven't found any serious bugs yet.

Thank you for all your efforts.

Well it look quite shiney and new. I liked the way it was set up but I highly doubt any amount of wining I do will get it back. I'm sure there's some neat stuff here, like the videos on the side(that I like a lot) but I guess it will just get some taking used to, I wouldn't believe the tech crew here did any bad work.

I third it. I like it, but it seems quite muddled... Im sorry, i don't mean to be critical or anything but there doesn't seem to be anyway to distinguish between the different sections, they are all muddled together and looks a bit messy if you scroll down the page. If you just put them in boxes then it would be easier to distinguish..

Sorry. I like it, just my overall view on the new front page.

Sorry ... what? I was distracted by the avatar in post 11...

Also, glad you guys like it! And to those of you who aren't quite sure about it all yet, honestly, that most of those concerns are also paired with assurances that you'll get used to it and even thanks, feels great. It is a lot of work to do something like this, so we really appreciate you guys' being positive and your willingness to work through the newness. :)
