Does this mean the people that were originally opposed to the sidebar will be unbanned?

I honestly thought half of the page wasn't loading for me. The banner area looks incomplete.

But I'm a believer in keeping things simple, so I don't mind streamlining things at all.

I like it! Never was a fan of the sidebar anyways. The more subdued color scheme brings out the colours in the mascots and other graphical content more.

One thing though, the log in for the forums is appearing behind the main menu... here's a screenshot http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/6307/forumlogin.jpg

Haven't been here in a couple weeks. The redisign was a big surprise to me, but I really like the streamline feel. I notice one error with the characters on the top right corner showing a gray background, but that might be because I'm viewing the site at work and it's filter is weird where it breaks image. But I'll have to check the site when I get home.

All in all awesome look DJP.

I like the new, thinner skin, altho the contrast between them is a little on the strong side.

Also, teh sidebar is teh missing! What happen? Somebody set up us teh drama?

I suggest a thin, discrete icon-based sidebar or something as a later addition, one that scrolls down with the page (if done smoothly and is tab-clickable). No need then to page-up or scrollwheel-up or something just to get to the nav.

Half of these issue posts, just clear your cache. Mascots should be fine, menus should be fine. ABG's issue is happening though, so that text may need to take up more than 1 line or be moved entirely.

Already suggested to Dave, but for posterity's sake:

* Home / Interviews / Links / Shirts / Torrents should turn orange when hovered over
* Add "Contact Us" and or "Donate" to that row
* Headband of the headphones logo lightened to not blend with the background
* Donate/Shirts/Store/aStore ("Support" section) in "About" mega-dropdown, either above or below "OverClocked ReMix" section
* Alex Brandon pic in People dropdown
* Darker (not dark, just darker)/Off-white color for forum/writeup background. Similar to the grey used for the list pages, maybe lighter

Looks good!

Looks terrible at my resolution (1920x1200) on a 24" monitor. The dark grey background is right in the middle of a good contrast (or lack of.) Something that's closer to the light grey at the bottom would work a bit better near the top. The logo in particular is hard to see against the dark grey. Forums are ok because the page is almost full even at this resolution.

And yes, I know you wanted us to use the site for a couple days but my opinions here are not going to change; I'm not going to be able to see the logo any better tomorrow or a week from now, and I've always hated empty space on the sides of webpages.

I thought something looked a bit odd.

Even more so considering my browser had loaded half of the new theme and half of the old one. Huzzah for cached sites...

I'm experiencing AGB's issue as well. and I cleared my cache and still having the same issue. I'll try and post a pic of it but I might not be able to becase, as I said before, I'm at work and our network does this to other sites as well.

EDIT: just as I thought I can't upload it to my Photobucket account, won't allow the upload. Sorry Larry.
