The new thumbnail hovers look awesome! Great work :D

I was just checking out the Calendar. . . it is a great feature, but I personally find it hard to focus on & read. My opinion:
-Increase the size of the day #, it just seems too small for a calendar
-Darken days with no events, that would possibly , and maybe gray-out boxes from the previous/next month

Just an idea :3

That is a good idea, but a way of making the #'s bigger is to add them to the backgrounds. That would simplify things, and add more space fro the event

I understand that these may not exactly be bugs themselves, but a few things to point out. You can no longer search for Audio Portal users using the search bar at the top of the window and it's very finicky when it comes to song titles. Also, scores are no longer shown when browsing genres even when sorted by score.

And the scores are being shown beneath the icons too. :D

The thumbnails look so much better, nice work guys!

The only thing left for me that I liked better on the old site was scoring. Is there any chance to bring back the number scoring, maybe in addition to the stars? Since daily top 5 any other things are ranked on the score, you can't really tell what score each submission had by looking at the stars, the numbers gave us a more precise ranking system.

Do people here agree or am I alone??

Agreed. Currently, if you hover over the stars it will tell you the rating out of 5, but it would nice to see that maybe beside the stars, or some place where you don't have to hover :P

HOW BOUT THAT VOICE ACTING RADIO FUNDRAISER?!?!?!?! Ahem...

Also, a little bit ago you mentioned that people were complaining about not really being drawn to the featured window at the top of the home page. This may be a personal issue, but I have a hard time focusing on one thing at once. A lot of things are fighting for my attention as soon as I hit the homepage on top of the fact that the background art seems to blend things together with the color choice. It's nice art, but I feel something that would separate it from the actual content might make it easier to focus on the featured stuff.

Any chance on being able to have some sort of arrow button to scroll through art pieces in the art portal like before? Major pain to have to keep clicking back to go back to the main art page every time instead of just clicking "next piece." Especially from a modding standpoint.

Contributor revenue is up due to better ad placement on content and user pages but site revenue is down. Ditching the page skins has hurt and people apparently responded better to the 300x250 ads on the old Game and Movie hubs, where they had character art above them which possibly drew more attention to the space. We're gonna have to reconsider running some page skin ads but I want to to develop better ways to cover the budget vs slapping up more ads.

We'll need to revisit having an author search, I picture something that just turns up user page links vs content by that author.

I'm seeing the scores when I browse genres - try clearing your cache in case that's the issue.

I mentioned the fundraiser in there!

Stamper has been working at a new version of the feature box, to hopefully make everything POP better.

Yeah this wasn't intended to be left out so it needs to be revisited.

I know! I'm just being an attention whore. haha

Also, am I seeing things or did the gray in between the sections just show up or have they always been there?

Here's a little suggestion...

When you click on the 'Link' button once in a post to add a link to a label, and then use it again, the second time round, the first link you used remains in the URL box so you have to highlight it all and replace it with a new link.

To fix this, why not automatically make anything in the URL box highlighted? That way, when you paste the link in the box, it overrides the link there is.

I totally agree too; It's a shame cause it does look cool, but for a while I just thought it was advertisements. Maybe get rid of that bar on it, and have different effect other than the static.

It's not a calendar, just a list of upcoming events, which comes from the calendar.

Hey, I've noticed that you've also fixed the bug where you go to click on a medal on someone else's page and instead of taking you to the actual game, it just takes you to the list of medals. I believe that has been fixed, as I tried it on your own profile. The only thing I wish you could now do is see the top rated things of all time as well as the bottom rated. I don't know if you'll fix that, or if that's something you wanted to change.

...and just like that, they changed it. Looks good the new way. Do you plan on doing more with the actual calendar itself?!

Ooo, that looks good! Seeing as each section of the site is color coded, I think that would work well.

I hope they do more with the calendar, it could be so much more :3
