    I like the new look very much.I would like to see the "latest news" section on the left moved up into the place of the "new reviews" section to make that more visible at a glance.

    Great work Hilbert and the rest of the team. This design is much better than the one used a few weeks ago! It does feel a lot more 'in touch' with the old design (which I like).

    It could use a little more tweaks but as you said that will work out over the next few weeks. Keep it up!

    Prefer the old one tbh.

    I was in shock when u first launched the test site for a day or so, then it went away and I thought to myself "phew they got their senses back".

    I can't see one reason to why you would like to change the look, the look is part of guru3d brand by now and changing it throws brand recognition in the toilette.

    Companys do this all the time to their products and it makes absolutly no sense.

    Keep the old look imo.

    Way better than the previous version!

    It's very light to the eye and more user friendly.
    I really didn't like the previous one, it was way to cramped.

    Lovely design, team - more intuitve to use; I'm not having to scroll down for 5 seconds to get to the news any more :)

    Sounds like it was a bit of heart ache to pull the previous design offline, but it was very worth it.

    I like the new one but the news headers need some sort of contrast

    This is kinda of what i meant with contrast, i also think the top menu with the top stories scrollable need the arrows on the outside.

    This is a quick mockup i did, the fonts are awfull i know and the bar is just to represent the idea, something more pretty would be better.

    Dont take it wrong, its just some suggestions.

    Liking the new site. Brings g3d back to the present ;) looks clean, easy to navigate and most importantly loads fast as hell. There is the familiar feeling but with refreshing new look \o/ yup congrats on awesome job.

    Lookin' good! I like it. It looks modern, and it's pretty.

    Just one tiny suggestion:

    Make it so when you click on the article's title, it sends you to the article (the "read more" link is good but having only that its inconvenient). I believe that most sites do it that way so its a reflex to click the article's title. My 5 cents.

    Agreed. It's clean, functional, and unique.

    Congratulations!
    You've just created the ugliest, cheapest looking site to which I'm still subscribed.
    Whatever you people are smoking over there, please do us all a favor and switch back to the good stuff.
    This new site just doesn't get it. I click on a link, get sent to a mostly blank page with yet another link to the article and finally get to the article.
    What posessed you people to change what was once a friendly, easy to use, easy on the eyes site, over to this new monstrosity?
    I really can't believe you've been losing members because of the looks of the regular site, but I definitely believe that people new to this site, after one look, will just click off and never return. I honestly couldn't blame them if they did.
    To sum it all up: :puke2:
    Don't you even have "word wrap" enabled? One sentence shouldn't span more than the entire page and the "reply" box should be centered, not offset!

    kzinti1 -- that's just downright rude, not something we deserve. We knew in advance that some people would dislike the new design. It's the difficulty that we faced as we can't please everbody -- taste is a very ... very tricky thing. Along the way we'll tweak some stuff and look into things.

    However I do ask you to give the new design some time, changes are hard but this change is a massive step in the right direction and was also a much needed one.
