Most of the site's design is stamper's eye mixed with toms vision, if that makes sense...

Anyway its alot of take in, (even visually), and the project system itself is like a huuuge thing, so yeah even if you totally hate it all, you should give it some time, its almost like having to relearn a whole website. I am itching to try out the project system, particularly with a lounge like this, i think having people from here be able to poke around projects and leave their feedback would not only be awesome but might add a new dimension to this mimi-community of seasoned flash users. Maybe could even get to a point where Bryce's reg lounge game idea might be more doable now.

Something else I want to do is integrate collaborative things with the calendar. I think having that accessible keeps people honest and also helps people plan out their flash life better.

Also i like these new emoticons.

I've only had the chance to mess around with the new design on a desktop pc for a few minutes and my first impression is positive. I must say the change is bigger than I thought it would be. There's a very distinct move towards more graphical info instead of text, for instance in only being able to see the title of the games and movies when you move the mouse over the thumbs (instead of seeing the title next to a game, I think this is could be a pain on mobile devices). Also the focus on the score of the submissions appears to have vanished completely. I think I find that change the strangest change of all the things I've seen so far. I'm sure it's an attempt to draw more viewers to lesser quality game, but I'm interested to see if that will work out.

Gonna do some more exploring now.

Too bad the Project System is down, I was anxious to try that out today. I have an actual game that could need some testing.

Also, shmexy icons.

Mhm, pretty big change, but pretty cool.

Plus they definitely have my payment charts/data screwed up, because it's telling me I only made 0.27 cents for the all-time stats, when I KNOW I made over 20 bucks or so... :(

New NG doesn't like Chrome's version of Flash...I still have Firefox from when I wanted to play Abobo since Chrome doesn't like AS2 keypresses...

Redesign looks and feels awesomesauce

I haven't visited NG in about a year or so.

I returned because I heard of the new layout, decided to lurk the Flash forum and I see this thread still here.

Brings back memories, man. 2004 regs, any?

As do I :) Looks like the Project part works again, lots of things to fiddle around with over there. I actually had a friend build a test environment for my future projects, but I guess I might as well switch to this. I'm just curious to see how giving feedback on beta versions works, I'll try and test that with an alt.

I remember you also. I pop up and disappear too, i'm trying to get back into Flash too.

It's funny cause all of my college classes are based on flash, and they're all basic classes. The professor is trying to explain how it will be difficult and not everyone will make it.

Bitch i've been using this shit since i was like 12.

I have one gripe with the new layout.

I notice that even though I have a pretty big screen (1920x1200) I find myself having to constantly scroll to read through a topic. I find that my eyes aren't easily able to comfortably find what's relevant on the page. I think the information I am interested in is too spread out to be comfortable to read in a practical sense.

I know a lot of you probably hate Facebook but here is a comparison of what I mean by comparing the NG BBS to reading facebook messages.

Blue = Information I'm most likely interested in
Red = Information I probably don't care about most of the time.

I think my one observation so far is that the backgrounds are really distracting in some parts. Like on the frontpage where you have so many thumbnails already its like an eyeful. My poor beautiful brown eyes.

Yeah, I just posted the exact same thing in the redesign thread: It would be nice if we could turn off the background art. It looks cool for a couple of hours, and I'm sure lots of people here have fapped to it, but its too uneasy to the eyes imo. And every time I go on NG to do some semi-serious work I feel like I ended up on a site for 13-year olds. Which maybe NG is, I don't know. Anyway, it's even more awkward now when I surf NG when I'm at uni/work.

Being able to turn the background art off is pretty high on my list of redesign things that could be tweaked.
