I am just upset that many links (particularly drop-box links) are all gone-- but I assume (or I hope) that is something that will be fixed soon, once this switch over process is complete. Wacko

I appreciate you liked the last site, Kisai, but from our point of view it wasn't very good.  We need a site to educate new visitors quickly and clearly show what our site offers.  I think our old site did not do this well, and needed replacing!  I'm really happy with this one and I think it will work out better in the long run both for long-time users and first time visitors.

We've deliberately launched the site early without all the features we want to have.  Like with Construct 2 itself, we're releasing early and often.  So if you have suggestions, let us know!  This is not the final site forever!  We're going to keep evolving it, fixing things, adding features and polishing it over time.  We need to hear from you though - tell us what you like and don't like, and we'll be right on it.  The site wil be under active development for the forseeable future so we're listening.

I like this site's visual theme better (except for the blank avatar image), and how its all coherent now.

The site does look cleaner, though my best suggestions would be to make some of the colors darker, (When I first saw the new design I thought about limes lol) make some of the text smaller, and maybe make different kinds of themes for the forums.

All I really miss is the "recent posts" section that used to be on the main page. Any way that could be re-implemented?

If i could suggetst something ( as a web designer which is may part time job ) I would change the colors as atm it looks very clinical ( like medical clinic website ). I would use different font and made is smaller because the truth is smaller fonts are asier to read.. And use some other font ( maybe custom one) for headers. In regards to the layout I've got no suggestions as it looks ok it's just obviues that it is a template or made with some  generator... ( I'm looking at the footer ) yes, it's generator.

Hi Megatronix,

All the site, CSS/Layout/Design/Code (except forum) is 100% written by us and not a template Smile

In regards to colouring we did consult some long term users and we all did eventually settle on this scheme and design.

I agree with you on smaller font, I like the font size in the topics, but out of it on the viewing forums pages the font is too big.  I'm going to change that soon.

I think they should be smaller on the forum too.
