I kinda like it. It's different, and will take some getting used to, but definitely not bad. The home page looks awesome.

The board is like a hybrid between new and old, I'm liking it.

The main page is awesome, it looks real good

I don't like that they changed the url for the boards. ...Now I have to change my bookmark...

Otherwise, it seems pretty cool.

I will have to get used to it. As soon as I opened this page, the first words out of my mouth were, "OH MY GOD!"

Okay, that was annoying... They moved the stuff at the top of the screen so I clicked band instead of community. Has anyone gone to their page yet?

Yeah, it's gonna be a bitch learning to type /community instead of /forums like I have for six years, but I'll get used to it. Site and Forums look great. I love the Times New Roman looking font, only complaint is it's a little small. I'd call it a successful renovation.

This ... but it's a minor inconvenience

This ... it would be appreciated if the font size could be a little larger.

All in All ... I like the design :)

Looks nice!!

I'd want the font for the forum to be sans-serif instead, and maybe a drop larger, but that's because I am a huge nerd. I can probably change it myself with some browser magic, so it's no big. I'm liking this and I'm glad most of you are, too!

But still, the profile page and context menus should be fixed.

Yeah, the font size will probably need some getting used to, but other than that, the new website really surprised me in a positive way. Awesome!

Either there's a difference with my computer, or they already changed the font size, cause I'm finding it to be too large. It's a lot bigger than the old forums.

I dig the serif font. But I like serifs in general. I'm a fan of the new site, but I was sort of hoping for new colors :P

Yes, they did.

I echo the sentiments about community vs forums. Heh, I only discovered this a couple of hours ago. I kept refreshing the old page and getting 404'd. But now that I know, it's no problem.

I also don't like the serif font, but everything else looks awesome. Loving the home page. Can't wait to see what else they do with the design of the forums. It would be nice if they made it look more like the background, but then it would probably be very similar to the previous design.

May I ask why you guys don't like serifs?

Outerspaceman21
09-24-2010, 05:20 PM
Yeah, now the font size is a little too big for the post messages. I notices they changed the "Today, 12:00" to be a little smaller (or the larger font size is just making it smaller). I like it that way, but I don't like how huge the font size for the forums. Perhaps a middle ground between this and the tiny size from earlier.

Ohgod, the forums are slow and laggy, now!

they got rid of liberation media by the looks of things... wonder who's looking after it now? :rolleyes:

and probably the best FAQ's I have read.... not sure if they're new or not, never looked before

I like it, but the font is way too big!

Font size is pretty big. And I really don't find it all that different than the old one. :confused: The red & black is identical.

:/ They still haven't fixed the profile page... Also, whenever you click for ANY drop boxes, they show up WAY under wherever they were supposed to be.

Plus, five years from now when people refer to covers by The Forums... No0bs will be all... "why the fuck did you call it 'the forums'?"

Whoa! The layout changed literally in the 30 seconds it took me to click on two different links. I will assume that this isn't the finished product. :D

Woah, the bbs looks great. Interesting colors. I approve.

randman21

It is interesting. What color is it for you? I'm on two different monitors and one is pink-ish, while the other is basically beige.

I have beige right now: similar thing happened, clicked a link, and then the change occurred.

You will see some stuff changing around this afternoon - any suggestions on color?

randman21
10-07-2010, 06:28 PM
Personally, I'd like to see where you guys are going with this. The color reminds me of this candy I used to like when I was like 5. For years, I've been trying to remember what it was, but for naught. Perhaps if I'm staring at this all day, it'll eventually spark some kind of memory.

Not a huge fan of the grey colour at the moment, liked the beige better.

Maybe a green next?

Outerspaceman21
10-07-2010, 07:07 PM
Some darker would be great, but honestly, I don't care. They are probably just dicking around, trying to find something thats different and works.

Huh▀, what was wrong with the black? I liked the black color in the forums.

For me it is grey right now and after some kind of wtf?-moment I actually found it quite pleasant.

Tijs
10-08-2010, 03:42 AM
Nope, gray doesn't do it for me.

Why not just adapt the color-scheme as it is on the rest of the website?

KHWHD
10-08-2010, 04:01 AM
I think the grey make the forums look like a "free" site. :D I liked it better darker too. ;)

1st time I pass by...

The welcome page is really nice. And we're supposed to have updates every Monday, which will be cool! :) However, you have to scroll way down to reach the tabs...

I don't know if it was like this before, but the new Bio page have also been updated (last time I read it the story stopped in 2005!)
Maybe the photo page needs some corrections...

Forums were better before, big contrast with the rest of the website..! But after a while you get used to it, it's really not THAT bad! :rolleyes:

I like the homepage, but not that much the "community" page.. It's grey(gay) :/
Maybe this means that new album will feature this color scheme

Don't know. It always shows the "request a song thing" only. :confused:

Yeah, me too! Request a song, but no way to play it. Hmmmm....
