The new layout looks pretty good, but looks a little flat, maybe add some dimension by adding some shadows and soft gradient. Maybe?

It looks like "Chat” and "Forum" will be in the Community pulldown now? If you're going that way, I hope I don't have to click it to open the pulldown so I can highlight it to then click it again....it’s a little faster if like my mouse can hover over community and options appear to click just once. Idk haha is that lazy?? I guess I just liked the ability to go straight to chat button on the top, but oh wait it’s still there as a tiny blue one on the bottom I guess...

The font on "the backalleys" top part is a little boring and so crammed the "t" is hanging off the edge. I'd think you'd have a neat "pixel" font or "futuristic" font for the main logo name and a graphic that depicts the backalleys so a new person can get a sense of why the site is called that. These are all just suggestions; I don't have any real complaints.

i'm still not sure what to do with the menu yet. i want to code it with javascript (sigh) so you don't have to click the buttons. there may not even be a menu. depends on how many buttons i can fit there.

the header has completeley changed from the original pic. you guys can check out http://tutorials.thebackalleys.com to check on how the new layout is coming along. so far i have the header done, and i'm partway there on the buttons. feel free to comment on it. i'm more interested in functionality tips than design at this point though

personally i think theres too much going on in the new layout. much like the current layout. too much text gives me a headache just looking at it. as some wise faggot said "less is more".

is there really a need for all the forum specifics and stats all over the place?

definitely should stick to small sized fonts too. big large text doesn't mean that it's going to attract people to read it. consistency with text and styles is pretty much key in web design.

honestly feels like i would be visiting a stock and shares website, it has way too much statistics. IMO.

hope any of this helped.

i thought moving some of the recent stats to the bottom of the page would help with the clutter, as well as removing the left sidebar entirely. i feel like the stuff on the right bar is important, because the focus of this site is going to be on the forum & the tutorial database.

the fonts in the design are generally going to be smaller than the image preview, as photoshop tends to bulk up fonts and i can't specify exact pixel sizes they were larger than what i'd normally use. http://tutorials.thebackalleys.com/ is where you can keep up with how the new layout is coming along.

i understand the concepts of web design, and i don't see how the new design is inconsistent - besides using century gothic and arial, which i don't see a problem with as they're both sans serif.

a lot of the new website will be "stock and share" anyway. a file database will be an essential part of the tutorials section

Cool. I like the Bottom toolbar. But, I say you should make the popular topic text smaller, so "what's you're favorite fighting game?" doesn't look like "what's your favorite fight" But on top of that, the user interface is bit better. PROGRESS!

i actually really like the color scheme you used for this
the only think i dont like is the header. the cityscape looks good in that blue hue, but not the girl. she looks kinda out of place
i really like the current header. maybe you should just make it bluer

bring back that old theme that psi or whoever added and use that

sadly that one is broken, so if you'd try to use that theme you'd get an error message, and some admin (rtil i guess!) would have to reset your account's theme choice.

Anyways, I really like the new layout for the news page. The only thing that looks kind of weird is that "<author" etc stuff on the right of a newspost. I don't know how you can change that to make it look better, maybe make the background of that little box a little bit darker so it doesn't blend in with the long box below it, or just remove the line.


you probably have no idea what i mean, i can make a small screenshot if you want me to.

the sidebar is distracting, which is a shame since that's a very nice header you designed...um. i think maybe if you move it a little closer together it'll look better.

i'm definitely no expert on graphic design but my opinion is that your layouts tend to be too spread out.

also, i don't understand the use of "popular topics" or anything pertaining to updating us on it. this forum isn't mega active..i do see the use of "now chatting" but i guess you should ask some IRC whores if it's in a practical place. imo, i don't think it is because i didn't even notice it until i scrolled.

i\\\'ll just delete the bottom bar then. i made it for fun and i thought it was cool, i use the popular topics thing a lot but it\\\'s not a big deal. this forum might not be "mega active" now but when this site actually serves a purpose i hope that will change. i can\\\'t do anything about the layout being too "spread out", i\\\'m really against fixed width layouts and if it\\\'s too wide then just shrink the size of your browser window.

unless if you guys like fixed width layouts, e.g. newgrounds or youtube, where the page width doesn\\\'t change
