Sorry to be a pain, but you have to scroll across in the review window to see all of the review. I'm sure somebody's spotted this already, but i thought i'd mention it in case no-one already has.

I think the new layout of the window where the flash files are played creates a "happy colorful atmosphere", due to the brightness of the "Alien hominid" propaganda.
This is HORRIBLE when watching a serious movie, such as "Smile", because it doesnt let you get into it, and it takes away the authors effort to make the ambience dark.
Overall, good job, looks tight. congratulations.
Thankyou.

Nice work!
The only thing I would say to change is make the "view movie" button bigger.
Other then that, solid work, I look forward to the next update!!!

To be honest I thought that it'll take forever for the new layout to be updated on most of NG, but this update of the biggest part of NG proves me wrong. And I'm glad about that, hope the forum's next.

Well i hope that now you're using includes and such, so updating design will be easy, rather than having to edit a billion pages.

It's not a bug, it's a dumbass who wrote "cool" many time without spaces.

PROBLEM REPORT: Sorry I'm not sure if this has been picked up

On the Read Reviews page, the javascript window is a tiny bit too small. I know that this is just still using the coding for the dimensions of the old section of the site... but still, you have to scroll across when you are reading them

just thought i'll mention that!

good job on the site Will, looks grand!

It looks great, I think the new design is the best design the site has used yet. I can't wait for the stamperisation of the whole site, especially profiles :) Nice work guys. Stamp <3 James <3.

increase the size of the fonts a little, is very small and make the overall rating in reviews bigger

I really dig the new layout, i only found a minor thingie that annoys me: the reviews page always takes more width than the pop-up window it appears in, thus i need to move the horizontal bar to see a whole review. Very neat otherwise ;)

I can't wait, actually.

Oh, I didn't say I think everyone prefers the oldskool profiles. Just that I do. ;_;

Right now, the only images in them are the profile pic, the level icon, the b/p rank badge, and the whistle pic, as I also mentioned a few pages back... all else is simple text, a straightforward layout, and most importantly: a pure black background.

The very things that make the new design so fun to look at and dress up many other parts of NG... and that I find refreshing, fun, and new elsewhere on the site... are going to make the profile look too crowded, colourful, and busy, I suspect. If I'm wrong, and it still looks really streamlined and nice and simple, then I stand corrected... but one thing is for certain, presuming the background of the new profile design isn't black (and there's no reason to think it would be, with every single new background since last summer being mostly gray shades):

I think the level and rank icons look better on a black background than the dark gray already on the BBS, so... I'll miss how they look with the current black background in profiles, as well. Again, an option for us old fools to see the old design when we view any profile on NG... would be a lovely recompense. But if not, as I said, I'll take comfort in my saved HTML. ;_;

Or just not forced to open in a javascript pop-up... so we can just open it in a full window if we want.

Well i'd certainly love to see the profile page's layout changed :D it would be neat :)

Again, I didn't say I thought everyone was behind me on the profiles staying as they are, or having an option to, at least. I realise I'm probably part of a small <10% of NG regs minority.

In any event, I'm not resisting change anywhere else, I embrace the other areas of NG being improved visually, and aside from aforementioned slight font problems and so forth, am highly enjoying liljim and stamper's work and applaud it.

I just dig me old profiles. There, I think I've said that enough now. #;-}>

Not always. Some of the links open it that way, but if you use the "XXXX reviews available" links in anyone's profile who has 1+ reviews... you'll find that the window pops up large enough to see the whole review. For now, don't use the link from your GG menu, use the one from your profile.

It's not a bug, it's a dumbass who wrote "cool" many time without spaces.

Well, it kinda IS a bug. If that dumbass had wrote "cool" that many times without spaces 2 days ago, it would have just fucked up the author comment area UNDER the "watch this movie" link and text.

But for some reason, the cells are affecting each other with this new design, and as a result, the coolcoolcool... etc. etc. etc. didn't only push the right boundary of the author's comments over...

it also pushed the rating pic, rating text, and most importantly... watch this movie link... off the right side of the entry mainpage. I noticed it as well, Trevil.

Hopefully it can be fixed... and if it isn't... well, look at it this way: anyone stupid enough to screw up their own entry's formatting is probably going to just provide extra incentive for their movie to be blammed quicker, so... there ya go. We won't have to look at it that often or at least that long when it does happen again.

Looks awesome! Cant wait for the rest of the site to get updated! Also i think its a good idea to have a "add to collection?" future(?)!
