Exclamation Do you like the new-look BU?

OK, to back up dub's thread, I thought I'd post a poll

Simple question.

Change is good. I'd like the background skin to stand out a bit more - took a second to figure out what the difference was....

I think the main page looks pretty good. Forums are kind of plain, but it's clean.

You know, I really strove to make sure any website I made had the quality of design as the old BU, you really had a kickass site design.

The new design will take some getting used to, though I like the theme choices. The bg is hard to see, would be kewl if it would rotate through diff images based upon the themes.

I will get used to it, but it lacks th eold school charm the old BU had.

Let's be honest though, your site rules. Always had always will.

BU > all.

How about the QAPete Cam?!?

The old look is a tough act to follow

Overall, the new design looks good, though the old one was good too.

Like Reciprocity, I miss the random screens behind the BU logo. They were a nice, subtle way to add variety.

I also miss the wider use of the BU "U" from before. It is just a great adaptation of the general Unreal "U".

I can't complain much though. The site is great regardless, and it's nice to mix things up now and then.

Some of us choose to use 800x600?

I doubt anyone really chooses to use a green monochrome monitor you know.

Seriously, the design isn't that bad, but a fix for 800x600 users would be appreciated for sure.

Like I said before:
It's clean and simple and easy to navigate. It serves it's purpose well.

I could care less about random screens in the corner. What's the purpose?

I like functionality. If I want eye candy I'll go outside and look at the trees.

Agreed.


Hey, how about random backgrounds from various Unreal titles? That might help the new theme appear more lively. It's good, but kinda cold and too clean.

I miss the old layout already

There should be a choice to use the old skin or something.
