Open Thread: New Week, New Site


Yes, the new site design launched today, and of course sitting atop the lovely design is a god-awful pixellated photo posted by nikkos.

So, to push that ugly image downpage, I posted this open thread.

So, what do you think of the new look? (If you still see the “old” design, clear your cache)

It’s an open thread, go crazy.

    Nice new site design! I like it, very cool, clean, and very “Chicago” – (the typeface reminds me of the 1930’s – Art Deco? – anyway a style I associate with Chicago).

    I dislike the new design. The gray is too over used in design an the layout feels cramped. – Change is good but not this.

    Not real sure here. I agree with Barb that it feels cramped. It’s not like I don’t like grey but this grey looks like a FrontPage template grey to me for some reason.

    But all that aside…it’s the content that matters and this site has that covered!

    It looks … weird. The top part doesn’t seem to line up quite right, and I think a different MB wallpaper, to relieve the grey a little, wouldn’t be amiss. Looks like a standard blog template. Still, the color differential between old and new makes it EASIER to see the text and skip the ads, which is good for me ;)

    Ew. The design is very boring and looks like a billion other blogs. The font is difficult to read and is too big. The old MB was much cleaner and nicer to follow. I agree…change is good, but not this.

    Not loving it…at all!
