New Look?

I’m tinkering with a new theme. Whaddya think? Yes, I know the links on the side are dead at the moment. If I can add the header images back and update the sidepage tabs I might just keep it.

OH, and if you use an openid login, please try it and see if it works.

*update - people seem to be having trouble with the comments AND the design so back to the old one for now.*

Hrm, I dunno… my first impression is that it feels more cluttered. Maybe that’s just because I’m not 100% awake yet.

I like the colors and the persistent slider on the side.

I have to agree with JoeInMI at the moment. The new look seems a little more cluttered. One suggestion may be if you get the side tabs working is to move some of the items on the front/home page off to ancillary pages. Possibly the “Bits”, “Tidbits”. I think it’s the middle column that is bothering me. Some of it is duplicated at the moment (”Bits” and the section above.)

Best to you. BTW Fridays could be good riding days too! Everyone at work and such…. just have to squeeze btw rush hours.

It is intereting and more compact. It might take a little bit time for some people to get used to the new format.

I like it but it just does not seem like “you” and I miss your wicked banners at the top —

I think what would make it feel cluttered for some is that there are no lines to seperate things but for my tastes I do think this is a cool theme just not really syncing with the vibe I get from you….

If that makes any sense at all

I like the now layout, it works for me… simplicity and untility, however I am missing the banners at the top - any way you can add those back in?

It has a refreshing look but some how misses the mark. I think if the headers/banners where added back in (good luck doing that with this theme) then it would greatly improve the look. Mostly because you immediatly would get the name of the blog. Right now you have to search for the name of the blog. Maybe if the color of the blog name was darker (like the blue color) it would stand out more. Or maybe make it Black with the roll over to Orange - that would be cool too.

I agree with the other commenters: I like seeing your face!

Change is good!

Log-in works. It’s a clean design with a contemporary feel. The main blog title gets lost a bit…it’s not real obvious, like before. But it’s a nice change. Change is good. Yeah, I enjoyed seeing your mug. But this works too. It’s all good Moby.

I like the colors and the fonts. But I can’t tell where to look. My eyes dance all over the screen. I think it’s the double sidebar.

This is a lot better boo. Remember the KISS strategy: KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID.

I liked the layout and order of the other one, but this seems more functional.

HEH! Serves me right for landing up not dropping by here more often recently. I thought “Funny…the site looks the same to me!” ;-)
