I'd normally agree with this but a while back Eurogamer changed their site and I still hate it with a passion. It's reasonably similar to this change too just with slightly less eye scorching whiteness.Hitchmeister said:It looks different. Like everyone on the internet, I hate changes. Therefore I hate it.
For a few days -- maybe a couple weeks. After that I'll forget what it used to look like.
Then I won't have any more problems until the next time you change it.
agreed. the old version had a 'warmer' feel, as you say. plus the new font makes the text on the ZP page jump partially onto the thumbnail.tangoprime said:It looks like facebook now. Like... the current facebook. The bad one. With boxes and feeds everywhere, and everything way too spread out and inefficient.
Before it was compact, streamlined, efficient, and warm. Now, its facebook.
This. The previous site was perfect. Easy to navigate and you could get to where you want quickly. Now its messy with lots of boxes all over the place. Yes we can all get used to it and learn how to navigate through the mess. But the problem is the previous version was superior to this. Why fix what isnt broken?General Vengeance said:First Youtube now the Escapist, seriously why do people mess with things that work? Do people need to justify their jobs or something?
I don't see the Sun or water doing anything new. The sun is still hot and water is still wet, if there is DEMAND for change then you change until then no touchy. You go now and wear many ribbons of shame.
We have made several changes based directly on feedback from pub club. Go back and read the thread.mjc0961 said:Just about everyone in Pub Club complained about how disgustingly bright this white background is. Comments were made that it would be toned down. And now here it is, in my face again, blinding me. Thanks for looking into that issue like you told us you would. *thumbs up*
At least I can do this *clicks Pub Club exclusive "Old Site" link*.
EDIT: Oh nice. The "Old Site" link is broken. So let me just say thanks again for asking us all for our feedback and swiftly ignoring it all to launch the site despite the near universal complaints about the background and the numerous complaints about the front page layout. Next time this site asks for feedback, I'll be the one doing the ignoring.

Also if the moderators could stop warning people for their opinions that would be great. I mean:
A warning for this? I mean I know you're infamous for abusing your powers but come on guys...mgirl said:I have 2 problems with it:
1 - the loading times are a lot longer since the update, but I imagine that will get smoothed out soon enough.
2- it's too goddamn bright. It may have something to do with the fact I have adblocker on firefox, but the entire background is bright white. Seriously, I can't look at this website for more than a couple of minutes before my eyes start to hurt.
Other than that, I have no issue with it. But please, PLEASE make it less 'makes your eyes bleed' bright.
