Oh thanks Andy.
And I have a suggestion, could we change the little icons for writing and store? The store one makes YWO look like a baseball site, how about a shopping bag or something? And the writing icon is really unclear, at firls I thought it was gift box.

@ Jess: Always so positive:p Come on dear, give it a chance, I'm sure it'll look better once you get used to it.

Just because it's retarded doesn't mean we shouldn't respect it.

I like it Andy. Good job on making it.

Honestly, I don't know if I like the new format. I like the various unused links being cleared away, but it took me WAY too long to find the "New Posts" link.

And I might just be hallucinating, but I think the boxes for posts looked different before...softer, more curved or something? And I think I liked that way better. This whole format may be more efficient, but it just isn't as pretty.

Also, did the title of the site used to be centered? I don't remember anymore, but now it looks funny to me...

I'll think about it. Should be easy to do.

I don't like how everything on the top got downsized. The whole 'trying to look fancy' thing makes the site look noobish. I liked the simple style. I think it was unnecessary to have changed it when nothing was wrong before.

Reasons I hate xBox live:
-I sound like a 12 year old boy
-If I'm playing CoD4 or Halo3 and people find out I'm a girl. They T-Bag me.
-I get downsized for having a vagina if I speak one word into my head set.

Reasons I love xBox live:
- I can act like a lesbian, and for some reason that angers people ;D
- It's really funny when guys downsize you, then you blow them away with either, a noob tube to piss them off, or you just beat them with an AK-74 ;o

...so we can't improve? o_O

Anyway, I thought the last style looked more noobish than this one. The last one was so simple, it made it look as though the site was new. This one actually shows everything we have to offer off, so it makes us look cooler.

I agree with that statement completely, but you compared the old look to almost any other site, it was a mess. Links spanning two gray bars, some menus, some not. And too many floating boxes.

Now, everything is all sorted together, with room for new links to be added if they're needed, and I highly doubt the look will be changed anytime in the near future.
