Website overhaul – what you think?

[poll id=”1″]

To honor PMnet’s 10th year anniversary, I decided to give him (her?) a make over. Okay, so it is not the 10th year anniversary. Heck, it has not even been 6 months yet. Truth be told, I was getting tired of the old look. Not to mention it was not very organized, and it restricted how much content I could have on it. So, as I am sure all of you noticed, instead of writing a review for Desktop3D, I spent most of my time changing how the website looks. What do you guys think? Like it, hate it, love it? Post your thoughts. And vote!

Oh, and I also made a few changes that do not deal with the look of the website (added stuff mostly). Lets see who can spot what change. First one to spot a change gets a virtual cookie. :)

One last thing to note: changing from theme to theme may cause some things to not be properly formatted. Everything should look good enough, but if something is really bothering you, just let me know and I will fix it.

    David,
    About that earlier request you made. I decided that since the headlines and the featured section are articles that are taken from the main list and displayed separately so they can be highlighted, I am not going to add a ‘skip to the list’ button. Sorry :(

    jevvv,
    I get what you mean. I am going to look into getting better looking font. I wish I had Photoshop – it is so much easier to use then GIMP!

    Taz,
    I was thinking about an “About Me” section. Maybe in the near future, but for now I like remaining a mystery. :D

    As for being a full time student, yes I am. And unfortunately I do have morning classes which kinda sucks because I don’t get much sleep, haha. The things you do for fame huh? :P

    @Everyone who posts, past, present and future,
    Thank you all for your kind words. I may or may not be able to directly respond and thank everyone personally, but know that I appreciate everyone.

    I really appreciate the time and effort you put into your reviews. It saves me a lot of time! You should be writing for some commercial software review mag or website. Also have found all sorts of great info on your website.

    How about an “About Me” section. I’d like to know a little more about you. Nothing too personal please! :) I get the feeling your a full time student? If so, I guess you must not have morning classes – since your reviews are usually at 3am or so!

    Take Care
    and Please – Keep up the great work!

    David,
    Good suggestion. I will work on that and hopefully have it up soon.

    *Update*: David are you talking about being able to access the post list more easier? Because the “Headline” and “Featured” are also part of the posts list. If you want to be able to get to the giveaway reviews in a easy manner, just hover your mouse over “Software Reviews” and click on “Giveaway of the Day”

    IE,
    That list is automated. I would go crazy if I manually went in and found 10 related posts for every posts. However, I can improve that automation by adding tags to my posts, which I will do soon I hope.

    John,
    I am sorry :(
    Next theme I promise to find something with more color and contrast. But one step up from the last one is that the text is black instead of gray right?

    very cool, crisp and neat–I like it. Another recent change I think was adding the list of 10 other postings that may be related. I have to emphasize the “may be” because some of them are wildly not such, as in the list that accompanies this particular article. C’est la vie!

    I would prefer to see everything new on the first screen and not to have to take my hands off the mouse to scroll down. Maybe a smartly placed, LARGE enough to hit, arrow to the next screen. Moving back and forth from mouse to keyboard arrows slows me down.

    I like the new white screen design, too much black on the old one. It was “dark” – new look is bright and cheerful.
