Thanks everyone!

And we're not done yet!  We'll be rolling out a new podcast soon that will feature our own 'Hells of Gaming' Mat.  He'll be with us to talk about the changes and other gaming stuff.

Great.  I have to change the fucking Chromehounds squad logo now.

I'm not sure I like the colour scheme yet.  We'll see.

Other than that it looks nice.

Also the search text box and button above the "Home", "Help". "Search" etc. buttons looks horribly out of place.

Liking the new color scheme. Has a very Team Fortress 2 feel to it.   :)

On a positive note, after reading a few posts here and there, the site seems much easier on the eyes now.

I like the underlining for the links.  Helps make them stand out a little more. 

The "News Box" is good idea as well.  Just curious what kind of news you guys are planning on putting in there besides any more changes you might have for the site. 

I also like the layout for the BBC tags.  They look a lot nicer now. 

Finally, the quote boxes look nice too.  Although the black background doesn't stick out as much as the old quote boxes did.

We are thinking about mocking people in the news box.  It may turn into something akin to a shoutbox, may not.

Some of the real estate at the top of the page can go to announcements such as new podcast recordings and other promotions.

Yea, I love the new look, but I will agree with what was said about the Home, help, search etc buttons, they look a bit out of place. Also the header iamge should be centered or extended a bit to cover the middle section. Great work though, love the colors!

We discussed moving the header around but decided to left justify it.  The old look had a small header sitting in the middle of the screen with a ton of nothing on both sides.  We are planning to use the real estate to the right for podcast announcements and some other top secret things.

Wow, leave for a week and "pow".  I certainly appreciate the work that has gone into the re-design.  I still need to get used to it though.  I'm not sure about the color scheme yet, I was used to the green.  I'm sure it'll grow on me though.  I look forward to more.

Site looks awesome.  But I miss the atomic green look. :(  any chance on it coming back for special occasions?  Also what about a mascot?  I know you guys had the eye before and now the power on button.  But a mascot would be cool.  What about selling T-shirts, clocks, mouse pads etc. with the symbol, mascot and logo name on them?  Other forum sites do this like Rue Morgue and Dixv community
