I did read it all, and I even posted what's wrong with the new ggFTW site, too. I read this whole thread before I posted. Thanks for assuming I didn't. -_-

As unfinished as it is, I accept that. What I don't accept is that what I was complaining about SHOULDN'T be unfinished, and you SHOULD'VE done whatever you're going to do with it BEFORE you released this to us. What I don't accept is "we're going to make it less bright/noticeable" and it was a total freaking lie. What I don't like is how all three of those links you posted all suffer from the same thing that make it much worse than the original way. THE TWO EMPTY BLANK WHITE AD SPACES SQUISHING WHAT MATTERS.

It's freaking fine and dandy if it takes time to do all this, then take the time to finish it and don't force us into an unfinished beta version. I was excited about it, but now I'm regretting that because, you know, I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE LESS BRIGHT/NOTICEABLE. Also, TELL US what you're going to "change" over time! Are you going to fix the two white blocks squishing everything!? Are you going to make things "Less bright/noticeable" like before!?

And yeah Noe, the FORUM should revolve around the FORUM. It's fine if you want to incorporate other stuff into the forum, but don't ruin/take away what we do use in the forum! Some people only use ggFTW for the forum you know!

I understand that the forum isn't making you enough money, tell me, since when does "ruining" the forum have anything to do with "increasing revenue?" It's like you're trying to force us to visit more of the site by taking away what we actually used to like. I WANT you to increase revenue, I DON'T WANT you to take away what we use and replace it with things we won't ever use! I also don't want to look at this bright freaking new ggFTW layout that was promised to be much less bright!

EDIT:

Yeah yeah, I see your ninja edit there Noe. I saw your original post. Want me to take this to PMs with you so we can debate this better? I did, however, want to express my opinion about this openly so everyone else can see it, too. I know there are users out there that don't like this new layout for the same reasons I don't, and if they see how much everyone else likes it, they'll lose hope and get dis-heartened, which I absolutely hate.

Yes, my original post was a mistake. You're welcome to express your opinion -- no one will ask you to hide it. As I mentioned we welcome all feedback to try and make our site better for everyone. So far the vast majority of feedback has been very positive. Although we cannot hope to please everyone, it's great to know that so many of our members are pleased with the changes we're making.

In addition to the forum redesign, we have a few other handy things in the pipeline so be sure to stay tuned

I'm liking the new forums, the only thing that's bugging me is when I click new posts (which is what I look at the most on here) is the sidebar on the left with the top games and beta games list. It's squishing the list of topics and our profiles >_<

Other than that I like it (as much as I've seen so far) -still in class haha-

Skins?

I think the new layout is pretty nice looking. Seems the font got smaller which might take some getting used to, but overall I like it.

multiple skins would be nice, since I really am starting to hate this current one more and more (i know its a wip but still...).
Even if its just a palatte swap of the current one with a lot less white, I'd be happy.

Feels empty not seeing the familiar colors of the site..

I can understand you're passionate about your opinion on this new design, SOC, but don't you think you could've expressed it in a more respectful manner? I mean, could you post exactly what you would do to make it better (even though it's a WIP), and provide examples and such of what you mean. Or who knows, maybe you could link us to some forums that have the color scheme/design you were expecting this one to have. If it's possible to implement whatever those changes are and if the majority of people agree with you (you could probably post a poll or something to verify this), then I'm positive Noe would consider it.

Overall I like the new design. It's more sleek and easier to read and navigate around. I'm really glad that so far it's still easy to navigate using my phone, though I do agree with Kebin it feels a little to blank.

The design is very pro-like, even though I noticed that it's a WIP.

However, is there a way to bring back the "custom guild forum layout" feature (the one where you need about 30 ggFTW members)? I will feel bad for the artist who is doing our artwork/render for our guild forums. T.T;

I have to agree with SOC on this one... But not with that screamy feel >:

I don't like this new layout at all x_x it is much brighter for me, and I have to change the brightness on my monitor otherwise I don't get eye sore (I have poor eyes with glasses on, it doesn't do them justice at all)

I liked the old colour scheme with the blue, I feel it suits the forum more, and I didn't have to squint at the page. I also don't like how I have to scroll down the page for my user CP, I'd rather have it at the top for easier access.

And you also said in a different thread that you might consider removing profile customization... But it's one of my favourite things to do on here D: I don't have Facebook, Myspace etc so I only have this site to customize my own profile

-1, sorry Noe

I like it a lot, actually. My Firefox is set to zoom in 2x anyway since the laptop screen isn't that big and I'd rather not have my eyes die on me faster, so I see the supposedly tiny font fine... only irk is the background, hurts my eyes. I'm way too used to GGFtw's blue so it's harder to actually get used to seeing such bright gray/white on the site.

That and the left side links... I always used to shuffle between the La Tale/Trickster forums and can't anymore.

Cannot wait until the new look is finished. <: It's so nice and clean looking.
The white doesn't bother me at all :/ What's with people and saying it's bright? Dx

I have no complaints since I love it so far, though the people who don't like it so far just remind me of when the name went from mmog -> gg ftw.
I think those people are way over it now... so people will come to like this new design if they don't? I'd hope so anyway.

Oh, and is the wiki ever going to get a new look too?
the main page still has mymmogames on it. lol...

I like the more professional direction we're going in (in terms of design), and I'm positive it will attract more affiliation with publishers.

And like I believe Noe said, it would've taken months to fully implement everything and in my experience, the longer a project takes and the less eyes scrutinizing, the longer it'll take to be completed.

Example, you want to say lose weight. You'll be more motivated to run/exercise if you had a buddy, because then you'd have someone depending on you.

You want to create site progress, you have to start implementing anyway because then you have something to build upon.



I too have zero issues with the brightness, and I have brightness all the way up and I'm in dark sooooo. and I have a 17" monitor but anyone complaining about blank space on the sides can always minimize their browser. This isn't a fluid layout and if you shrink your browser to size, you can A) Have more windows opened and in-view to multitask B) Most websites use this same standard size anyway C) Who the hell with a fluid site would want to view it in full resolution.

I'll edit if I think of anything else to say :v I'm sad the new profile functions were shot down. IMO for the better for the site/the site's image more standardized profiles would come off as more professional, but to each his own I suppose.
