Unless your planning other things, then that's fine :)

Classic view will look better in a couple of days. LilJim is working on it.

I found a problem... When I try to set it to classic, the "Save Changes" button disappears.

Being able to make flash larger on site gives me the urge to polish everything so its nice and shiney and smooth..

I've already started polishing up some old work so it doesn't look so scuffy whilst enlarged.

It really a great idea. And I'm going to stick with it instead of classic. But i really need a few things fixed.

1. I know everyone's getting like "widescreen computer moniters." however there are still people that have 4 by 3 ratio computer moniters. If the flash is not wide screen... by the time it reaches the sides of the site... the top and bottom get cut off a little bit. So basically I can't use the maximize button unless the flash is a little bit wider aspect ratio.

2. Someone else said this but I like the classic mode because you can read the author comments and other info like who its made by. People will just watch the movie or play the game and never find out who it was made by. So basically the play button should be a header at the top of the page, instead of just showing a play button with a bunch of black empty space. Then when you click play the movie expands horizontally into the movie. I think it would be much better.

Wide Layout Update 1


Thousands of years ago there were no numbers to represent two or three. Instead fingers, rocks, sticks or eyes were used to represent numbers.

The new layout kicks ass

A lot more convenient and visually appeasing.

Will take some time to get used to but I'm looking forward to more updates!

PS: You should totally give the audio section a new layout too, like a next song button, shuffle song or random song button as well and a playlist creation on site.

i dont really like the blank space on the sides of the screen. you should fill that in with other submissions the author has made.

holy fuk you guys rock. My only complaint, and was actually a big one for me, was it automatically plays. I like to open in new tab every blue rated video in the portal and then play them one by one.

Thank you for both allowing us to change back to classic way, and ability for non-automatic play.

oh yea and authors should be given the choice of whether to have the maximize button. Some flashes shouldn't be expanded and authors should have the choice

Two things that could be improved for me to find this update perfect.

A more enjoyable play button instead of the gaudy standard.

A smoother transition when changing the screen from normal to wide and vice versa.

Other than that Im loving it. :)

That's great and all Tom, but it would be absolutely wonderful if you could have it so that we could have it EXACTLY how it was before the change. I appreciate what you're doing and everything, but the wide view hurts my eyes, and in my opinion the bigger sizes look unnatural.

Hopefully there can be some middle ground.

Awesome!! Thanks, Tom, PsychoGoldfish and everyone else :) I hate when it auto-plays anything, so it looks much better with just the bug PLAY button.

Well, the wide format is OK, but the autoplay is annoying, and the inability to see the specific reasons for the movie's rating (ie: violence, language,etc.) is a minor inconvenience.

Well you'll be happy to see they're still there. :)

Classic mode looks like old mode, but wide... Because wide is the way things will be going.

Is that some kind of fat joke? I think it was. But that's just me. You said it.

ZOINK!
