    Much better, can i suggest making 2 tabs, replacing the Current Stories on the right?

    One that reads "news" and the other "reviews" so when you click on the news tab you only get the news, and you can put the RSS feed next to the tab text. And when you click on the reviews tab you only get the reviews.

    i guess you can do it in the CMS to categorise the articles for news and reviews.
    if other gurus agree with me, please reply

    I'll keep that in mind.

    Menu and navbar font headers have been changed to a more regular font. That better then the geekie older looking 80'ies font ? (which we found a funny reference for an old site like Guru3D).

    The new layout is cutting off the images in the reviews.

    Edit: Nevermind, at full screen it's fine.

    There is ONE improvement you could make Hilbert which you already mentioned.

    It would be nice if you could add a second skin, say a light blue as it previously was.

    This would make it easier on the eye & not too strong...

    In the beginning, I thought that I opened the wrong pages, it looks so much different. But it looks really nice.

    It's also better displayed on my phone :)

    People have a right to express their opinion. If anyone should leave that is you!

    Hate people that try and decide what people can think and can't... :puke2:

    i like it. i think the fact that the graphic is a little 'busier' than the rest of the page (with the low-key colors and minimalist layout) actually compliments it rather well.

    Much better logo, great work :)

    Now if only something could be done about that color theme and I would be an extremely happy camper :D

    You guys are all just nostalgic ;)

    Alright -- this will be it for now. I'll have a chat with the web designer to see if in the not too distant future we can tweak the colors a little lighter to match the old site.

    Nostalgic or not that logo has a lot more detail than the new one had and looks a lot more "pro" if you know what I mean. :D

    Man, if I could hug you i would :D

    But here's a virtual one though :p

    Don't know if you remember, but some months back, I made a thread about the frontpage - this is a lot more than I had in mind though - but in a good way !

    Seriously nice to have everything to check out without having to scroll for 2 minutes :D

    Only thing is, as mentioned by others - is a bit lighter theme.
    But the new site is miles ahead of the "old" one.

    Good job Hilbert and the rest of your team.

    Sure we are nostalgic, but everything is the same - the community isn't gonna change just because the design does :p

    You forgot a seperation bar in the top left column though ;)

    THANK YOU :D


    EDIT : Here's the thread I mentioned - http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=352215

    Alright, we'll advance you guys ... I've asked help from another Guru who's into CSS coding as well.

    So I hope that from here onward step by step we'll see subtle things chance. Right now I HAVE to get back to reviews though :) Hardly haven;t slept and you guys prolly want some GTX 660 reviews next week ;)

    Apps :( the proper way to do things is if you want a stylesheet that works well on mobiles. Which the new one does. I don't want to open an app to read news, I have my Google Currents for RSS feeds or I go directly to website via Chrome... Apps for stuff is old.

    Also, the new page is VERY information cluttery. I find it's hard to focus on the important stuff. So I hope it's a work in progress thing :) (I am a frontend developer, building and designing websites is what I do for a living :p)
