Revamped the website layout. Should be a bit easier to navigate now.

Oh, I really hate saying this, buuuut...I liked the old one better. It had that beautiful background, and a more spacious, open feeling.

This one's got a bit too much metal. Blue Planet's mood has always been kind of atmospheric and airy.

I dunno, just visceral feedback. I bet a simple background change could make me happy, and I'm only one constituent.

EDIT: Yeah, the new layout's great; it's just the background.

I'm going to have to agree with General Battuta. I think if the background image were the same as the previous one, it'd really 'lift' the mood of the thing.

I'd have to agree too.  The metal might work for something like Inferno, or maybe TVWP, but BP just doesn't fit with that.
If you don't have Knossos, you need it.

The new one, while shiny, looks claustrophobic.
Everything is compressed to the upper left corner of my web browser.

Well since we haven't played WiH I wouldn't know if the new look fits with that or whatever, but from what we know from AoA the easy-going look suited that particular setting more. TBH I don't really mind, they give off two different "Feels" IMO, the current one gives it a grittier feel, while the old one was a bit more "Wild Blue Yonder" ish. Stick what you think's right though.

Sent the website back into outer space again. How does this version look?

Good. The text is a tad bit hard to read near the atmosphere of the planet, but otherwise it's excellent. Though there's no blue to be seen.

Looks good.  Just one question ... where did the "screenshots" section go? :(

It's going to be a subsection of "media", along with music and video. Will go and set it up sometime tomorrow.

You're forgetting. Titan has an attention span equal to the square root of the attention span of a goldfish.

But what if the attention span of a goldfish is <1? :nervous:

Ehh ... nevermind ... stupid math thing.

 
No. I just haven't been on this board in a while.
