Looks alright but it feels too much like one of Webdude's old half assed designs that was just a little different from the previous site...

I hope they didn't pay too much for this shit.

simple=good.

Letīs face it, Offspring NEVER had a good website...well,maybe the americana one with all the marquees and stuff,:D

I was a fan of their last one, actually, and Webdude's last offering ironically, other than that yeah, they have been lacking in the site department but at least they don't have the entire site made out of shitty looking flash stuff like alot of bands do.

ahahahaha webdude...

nah man if webdude had done it it would look even less finished...

then he'd come on here and bitch at us for complaining... then vanish for like a week... (hahahaha i miss that guy)

I think the only time I recall ever seeing Webdude online at any time was when he was bragging about having a new copy of Splinter that he was rocking out to in his car and how we'd be playing the hell out of it because it was so good.

I dig the site, it's not too bad.

What I really miss though, is offspring chat.

Those were the days!

haha yeah I could never stand the chat... it was obnoxious as hell until some band member would randomly appear then it would just go NUTS

I remember Webdude bragging about that... that was right around when he got canned wasn't it?

Wonder whether he still wanders on here...

I was just thinking that, does anyone know why he actually got fired besides the fact that the Offspring or their management finally got a clue that he wasn't good?

i dont think EPIC describes it...

and as for webdude - i dun remember - just sorta remember he disappeared as always then suddenly things got re-designed and it was a new company and that was it...

I'm personally a fan of this new design. I like the darkness. I don't see how it's not as "user friendly."


Actually, I wouldn't mind this being the permenant design.

I think the new style looks good for the main website... but I don't like it for the bbs as much. One good thing- I don't see the skull anywhere. I think maybe they finally ditched it. :) But my favorite thing about this bbs was how fast it loaded... faster than any other site for me. Now it seems to load slower.

But I don't really care that much. It's neat to have a change.

Hmm, it's exactly the opposite for me, guys. I think it looks great for the forums, and a little too plain for the main.

I agree man, nice for forums, but for the site... well... I dont think it works. Have you seen the Metallica's website? Its kinda cool that option where you can choose the skin for the site, I mean if you want it old Metallica style or new Metallica style. Offspring can do somethin similar...

Personally, wtf to the dissatisfied responses about the website. Simple works soooo much better.

And omg to the mentions of Offspring Chat. Those really were the days.

Offspring chat was where I discovered the advantages of internet. I was 13 or something like that *lol*

I like the new style.
Always keep it simple :)

Yes, because I want to change my setting every time I come to this website. Even if I did it isn't going to change the extreme contrast to much.

ha I actually find that annoying, cause I never visit anything outside the bbs... so it's just clutter to me.

I'm glad they didn't do something extravagant with the site design. I agree that simple is better. I hate visiting sites that have to load up flash shit or just have too much going on.
