This is... so... intimidating and awesome at the same time!
The visuals are stunning and the new icons are really cool (I want to see that list of level/rank icons to satisfy my curiosity)! It feels like I'm exploring something new yet familiar and the presentation is visually a lot better while it honors the NG theme. This site got a lot more modern and stylish and have that special futuristic awesome feel to it! I like that everything is so much more bigger than before too (no need for that monocle anymore while on NG), and less cluttered. The background art pieces are well picked and I like it that they change when navigating around the different portals and I like the different NG-related characters on the bottom of the page, it feels more epic somehow, as a whole. There's a lot of details in the new design and I really enjoy navigating around here. A praise to the artist(s) and the designer(s) and everyone else that worked on the new design.
I'm a bit curious about the "Latest shared creations" pod on my user page, I like the idea a lot that you can now keep track of your user creations and show them on the main page but is it also supposed to have something to do with high scores too? Having a high score pod/list on the user page is something I would find quite fun to have but right now it is a bit confusing (yet intriguing) to see the high scores in the user creations pod, perhaps a separate pod/section/tab for scores?
Amazing work! It really feels fresh and improved: the computer screen is spewing sparkling rainbows at me right now...
