    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....

    So now it looks like crap in 800x600.

    No.

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

    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. :p

    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.
