The main page still needs some work. When I click on the links at the top, it goes to unfinished pages.

I'm not very impressed. It's simple and sharp. And if it's simple, it should be perfect. Well, it's not perfect. I like that shiny black colour, it looks so much better now when I'm typing the post.

MORE OF SHINY BLACK, PLEASE!!!

Also, I'm kind of confused. There's no red on HH single. I'm wondering how's the album going to look like.

The new site design is meant to be simple while focusing on new features - the community features you're seeing on the new board software, the main site's tour section supports ICS and RSS, plus some more things coming soon... We didn't create the new design but we implemented it for the band based on their direction.

I haven't seen the album art yet and I haven't heard the record but I have heard it's great. The band seems really truly proud of it so I'm pretty excited, just speaking for myself.

is anyone else having problems with the scrollbar in the tour section?

It's working fine for me on Safari/OS X.

We're interested in any bug reports - what browser/OS are you using?

Posts should be filled with shiny black. White letters wouldn't look so sharp. It would be more balanced. I'm not gonna sleep if I'm not getting it. :p

I have that problem with scrollbar too. I have IE6.

Some of the new community features include the ability to:
-Create and join groups
Sweet, we can finally form exclusive cliques with all the cool people and shun the nerds. People were paranoid a few years back about a secret group calling themselves LEET working behinds the scenes to discredit anyone who wasn't part of them or who opposed them. Now we'll finally be able to confirm what knew was true all along.

BUT, i am on a PSP right now, so what would that be considered, mobile?

administrator_old
05-01-2008, 10:26 PM
Heh, we've talked about doing a mobile site for some time but I think we'd target iPhone first since it has a reasonable browser, then maybe BlackBerry.

Anyway, thanks for pointing out the issue w/ IE. We'll re-check and come up with a fix.

Whoa, you're seeing something that jacked in IE?

Make sure you clear your cache.

I haven't looked at the new features yet, but I loathe the design.

I've always really liked the last design (one of the few I enjoyed), it was easily navigated, easy to read, and light on the eyes. This, not so much. Plus this one just seems so generic.

Though, I will say, that I too like the tabs at the top.

Jebus
05-01-2008, 10:50 PM
Cache is cleared. Problem still there. It's not just in Tour. Every page is like this.

Oh, and splash pages are so late 90s. What's next? A five minute animated flash intro?

We will look into the IE6 issue immediately.

I'm using Mozilla Firefox now, and the only problem I see, is you know when you click on a link, it gets that dotted line around it?, well when i click on the links at the top (home etc) the doted line goes around it on the right side, but on the left side, it extends all the way over everything to the edge of the screen

05-01-2008, 11:58 PM
I still have a window up of the main page before it was changed. :( Heh, I loved that design way too much for some reason. I think I'll screen shot this baby for future memories...

Now, I can go either way for this one. I don't think it will be as eye-catching as the old one for new fans, but it's about as good a change as could be made, nice and simple. Once again, the old members will appreciate the awesome new features more than the newbies will. I can't wait to sink my teeth into them. And the tabs at the top? Now this place is perfect.

It looks old skool.Word. For some reason the first thing that springs to mind is "NES".

At the moment I'm still trying to figure out if I'll like it once the novelty wears off, though.

Question: On the main page it says that we can sign in with our forum ID's. It doesn't work for me. It states thank you for logging in holland25, then it redirects me back to the page, and I'm still unsigned. What the fuck?!

I like it. The new design is nice and simple. The feature that makes me log myself in right on the homepage is cool. But I also had some bugs like 2 menus over each other, basically the same that biggest offspring fans screens show. And the page background matches perfectly with my avatar / sigpic background :D I love it! :)

If you're seeing remnants of the old site, you need to clear your Web browser cache.

There is a known issue regarding IE6 that is being investigated.

Safari, Firefox and IE7 all work fine.

administrator_old
05-02-2008, 11:53 AM
The new radio uses higher quality audio so it requires more bandwidth on your side... It works best on a high speed connection.

I'm loving the whole new look. At first I hated it you know, bright red on black. But when I got home and looked at it on a 'non-school computer' its really grown on me.

Any of you guys seen the new Group page? Check it out and if your from the UK, join the UK group!

http://www.pickbrains.com/articles/color-psychology-in-marketing

"Colour is an aspect of a website that is often picked haphazardly and without any thought from a beginner web designer."

Red
Symbolises: Passion, fire, love, lust, war, violence, blood, and aggression
Suitable Uses: Where the aim is to motivate an individual to take action, convey a warning, or stop the user.
Some believe that: It stimulates the appetite and makes objects seem closer and larger.

When using different shades of red on a website, be careful. Because of the way the eye sees red, pink (which is a light shade of red) does not go with red. Also bright red can be quite irritating if used over large areas.

Black
Symbolises: power, elegance, and sophistication, death (Western culture), evil, anger and sadness.

Just to be on the safe side, do not use over a wide area.

Anyone else having trouble with the pages not updating with new posts unless you hit the refresh button? I never had this issue before the layout change but now I have to keep hitting refresh to see if there are new posts even if I leave the site and come back 30 minutes later.

edit: just to clarify, this isn't happening constantly or anything, but it has happened more than a couple of times since the change.

I had to do that before to, in firefox you can use an plugin that will refresh the page automatically, if youre that lazy...
