Hey hey! The new look is fantastic. Very different and very kewl. However, and I never noticed before, on a 800x600 res, the pages scroll horizontally a bit So if you could fix that it'd be great.'

I too am not fond of the readmore part since I usually have a popup blocker on and only trained my self to unblock when i click on the flashes. And it also would be great for users who are signed in to have that sign in pic changed. ^_^

Otherwise, everything else works perfectly. I believe the comments on the vote panel are supposed to flicker a bit. And for me, the pages load quicker than the have before. And I love the leetness of "shit" since now computer lingo is on both sides of the vote spectrum.

Otherwise this new look is great, but you could modify something though:On the voting panel, the speech bubbles flicker before they actually appear or disappear. (Slide your mouse cursor quickly over all the 6 of them to see what I'm talking about.)I personally liked the old ones better because they would appear instantly.

Nice look, just one thing: the review boxes. You should let the title of the review standout a bit more. Apart from that, no critisims (yet).

Okay, I admit, the new layout looks good, but what is up with, "Blam this piece of @?#!"? It's just plain pathetic.

Its in 1337 speak.I kinda like it since I can already read 1337 really easy.

As for the new layout, it looks pretty good so far.

Yeah, I had that problem too... You wouldn't happen to have a pop up blocker, would ya? It happened to me because I had the new Google toolbar. If you have that too, hold Ctrl when you click the link.

Yeah, I use CrazyBrowser. Holding CTRL did not work for me. Thanks though. Anyone else have any suggestions? Thanks.

Well I'm not sure about this. I liked the old one better really. It was easier this one is just so blurry. Maybe I'll get used to it, like I did with the frontpage.

I don't like that for example , you don't know if youre going to vote 3 or 4 on a movie- It just comes eppileptic stuff when you have your mouse on the votes. use see? it annoying.

Nifty facelift to the main and portal entry pages.

Only issue that remains is to change the Whistle image's background (the one that appears on Under Judgement entries) from black to gray in order to match the new layout color.

Heh, I decided to start BBSing just to say that.

STOP CHANGING NG! It was better the way it was before. Also, that crappy "more" button to read the authors comments sucks. I don't like it. Sorry man, it's good but it's confusing and it was better before.

Now is the most critical time to voice your comments and criticisms! What do you think of the new look? Is everything working properly? Is anything missing? Do you feel like this new look is cleaner and easier to understand? Let us know your thoughts!

I think it looks awsome, everything looks so cool. But what you should do know is when you want to search a movie, you should give more options on what its suppose to be, like finding it by what its rated, who made it, how much points, that stuff.

I also dislike the (Read More) button. I sometimes like to push the reviews down to avoid spoilers.

Front page - better than old one.
Flash Portal - better than old one.
And finnaly Portal view page - I'm not so sure.
There are two things, which I don't like in new version. First I think that you should use letters (E = everyone, A = adult), not whole word. Second, you should change colors of review box in bottom. Background of one-line summary should be done in other color than full review (like it was before). Too much italic fonts. And last thing, all NG design elements is decorated with swf flash icon from Macromedai Flash 5. I'm sure that now most flash creators are using Macromedia Flash MX, so maybe you should use this swf icon ?

Its great! slowly working in the new layout on all the pages I see. But where did the frames come in? I read that in your last post.

I like the new layout on the Portal page. Stamper did a nice job and we even get to see the new design for Darnell (I think that's his name; I can't remember) from Pico. I hope Stamper continues to re-design Newgrounds, I like his work!

i dont really like it but i hate the vote bar the look is ok but the way the speech bubble comes up is to slow, i dont want to have to wait to see what it has to say and go back to blam this pice of crap , fuck the children if they see the word crap or shit on this site it's not really going to harm them and $417 just looks wrong (yeah i know it stands for shit but i would rather see the work shit than $417)

The portal was fine before you had to change everything to fancy-new age stuff. I liked the old version better, but this is ok.

I definitely like the main page and Portal page updates but the 'Portal view page' could use a couple of things:
- There's no clear separation between Author's comments and Most Recent Review. I like the separator boxes of the new layout and something similar could separate those two sections better. Or at least, you could put a grey background behind them.
- The Movie/Game rating (e.g. General, Mature) doesn't stand out. Larger font size could be better.
- The flashing text bubble with the Pico heads is a bit annoying because of the flashing and also have to wait for the text to appear. I liked the old one better.

Well, these are my opinions.
