Your thoughts on the new layout?

What are your thoughts on the new Comicvine layout? I think it's ok, that first I hated it but then it started to grow on me, but I hate the fact that we have to insert pictures to our computers now if we want to post images on posts, fourms, blogs etc.

I also that the fact that when the new layout came all our things we did in the past few days have been go like they never existed, like a few day ago I posted a blog about a powerful object I created called "The Core of Morpheus" but when the new layout came the blog and all the messages I had from it were all gone like they never existed.

But I posted the Blog again and I called it "Create a team that can beat me with this object I created" so if you want to see it you can.

But in summery I think the new layout is ok but I still prefer the old one.

In all fairness the mods/staff did warn about the loss of data (pinned topic on the forums).

I don't like how they've set up the pm system/wall post and the lack of a functioning activity feed for friends. But the forums/profile i rapidly get used to :)

It's growing on me. On the first day of the new site, I just posted for a bit before the new layout completely turned me off. But after a bit, and given a little adjustment, I've gotten used to the predominant grey/black and the lack of color.

There are some tiny nitpicks that still irritate me (like being unable to edit lists or copy-paste images), but for the most part, those are minor. I'm just trusting the staff, and I'm sure they know what they're doing.

I greatly dislike the following:

  • Image sizes
  • Wiki pages
  • Location of the moderator / staff tags (it belongs under the avatars)
  • Current PM and wall post system.

I did not mention the online/offline thing, since that's supposed to be implemented next week.

I'm still trying to get used to the new layout of this site and at first, I didn't really post up any comments because I was still trying to get used to this new layout. But as far as the forums go, I'm starting to get used to it and I liked the new option about "favorite topics" being added to forums board.

There's a few things I don't like, and there's a few bugs, but overall the new features more then make up for it, IMO

It's really had to even post anymore. I don't like the way threads look. It looks like a twitter feed. I HATE Twitter.....

I love it, but the new search feature sucks, i mean it searches for any thing thats in your search

So if i search for Superman vs goku it will show me every thread that has ever had the words Superman, vs, or Goku

Its really bad

I don't like it. I miss some old functions. For example: I'm looking for newest comics, where is the Riddler. How mayI find now, it in new layout? There is page of New comics, but it doesn't display characters or when I click on Riddler's Comics page, there are sort only by number of appearances. :(

Edited by toonluv

Agree with Nia Wolf, hate the new design, it's borderline unusable as far as finding specific appearances for characters. In the old design you used to be able to sort appearances by date, number of appearances etc. Hate the new gallery layout also, used to be able to link to characters and other stuff in the featured image, now it;s just an image. This site used to be a very handy database for finding characters and looking for specific things, now it's barely usable.

Well, there goes that.
