It looks slick. I like it. The big buttons at the top should play nicely with tablets (larger links or button-ified links in the 2nd bar would help in that regard).

Love the new look. Sad to see the old forums look that we knew and loved but glad to see a facelift to keep up with today.

10/10 in my book. Great job to everyone who worked on it.

There are some touch interface related issues at the moment - something to get fixed up in the future.

Background is a little boring (generic photoshop gradient, blech) and it could use more purple

Everything else is great though

I'm referring to this (highlighted in red)

It's a bit large and the way the background image has poor contrast with the selector at the bottom since the list of stories is overlayed. To help the selector show up at the bottom I'm suggestion dimming the image so its' a little darker and it draws out the selector.

I think the size could be reduced to about 2/3 what it is now. Ideally on my screen like in the image I should see the VIP posts and at least the first news article fully on one screen without having to scroll.

I think if you moved the selector list from the bottom of that area to the right side and stacked them one on top of the other it would increase readability and allow you to shrink the overall size of the space while giving a decent size for the story images.

I love the new look. The only thing I can see right now is that sometimes the nav buttons at the top will switch accidentally when you're going to press one of the smaller links, but that just might be my fault.

Re: Welcome Back - We want your feedback!


The design is a major improvement, although to be frank, the previous design was so exceedingly busy that almost any layout that reduced clutter would have been a major step in the right direction

Some problems with the page width: On widescreen monitors, the background image doesn't fill the whole page. Setting the background div's width to 100% and allowing the background image to tile would resolve this issue. Meanwhile, on small monitors, the page is just a bit too wide. I'm not sure what web developers shoot for these days, but it seems like most sites still work on 1280x1024 screens; the new layout here is about 50 pixels too wide for such a resolution.

And as Malorn mentioned, the layout uses a lot of vertical real estate which pushes the content much further down the screen that it ought to. Aside from reducing the size of the large image, reducing the top and bottom padding on the buttons and headers would help without compromising the aesthetics (the text itself is large enough that it should remain tablet friendly). Moving the Forums, IRC Chat, News, and Contact Us links at the very top of the page to the right-hand side above the search box, so that you could move the PSU banner up, could save some additional vertical space.

Again, these nitpicks aside, the new layout is much better than the old one. Great work!
