    You're right. I'm editing that comment. I'll wait until I have more concrete info on this before talking about it again.

    I'm going to push to make this happen. I know you guys want this. I don't fully understand why it's so important to you all, but it is, so I'll do my best.

    I try. At the risk of sounding like a lame ass-kisser, I really just want to give you guys what you want. I'll do what I can to make that happen.

    But the day this actually happens...... you must all parade me around, carrying me on a golden throne, chanting my name.

    EDIT: And I want everyone's signature to have a "Thank you, Anthony" picture in it just like the one that StinksMocarina had for a while there. That really made my day :)

    I like it.

    I gave it a minus due to not receiving cake.

    I really love the large pictures accompanying the articles on the main page. And the full paragraph of text as opposed to the previous one-liners. Get the comment notifications working and I'd say the main body of the site is perfect.

    It really is a pretty update.

    I assume your edited post was about returning to black, which I couldn't care less about. It will please the whiners but I think it would kill the great aesthetic you just debuted.

    Do reviews seem oddly hidden? Maybe 'reviews' should be a tab like 'news' and 'manifesto' so you can sort and find just the reviews. The reviews are what make Game Revolution.

    This has already been fixed, I think. Good work, guys.

    The "Games" tab has both reviews and previews (both in the nav bar and in the content stream).

    This can be done, so long as you enable flash embedding and animated .gif signatures. Seriously, you guys, we should've had this a long time ago.

    Then again, if someone like ignacbenn were to come in spamming flash advertisements, it could get out of hand very quickly. Well, there's always the animated .gif signatures...

    Not you, though, your signature is plenty awesome on it's own.

    As for flash embedding, I don't know what this entails - I'll ask. It might be due to the forum software we use.

    Why do the spambots always attack while we're undergoing changes?
    Curse you, Science!

    We had flash embedding, and a few days later we were spammed with embedded links and other little bugs. So that went out the window fast.

    And it's possible to have an animated gif in your signature. It's just not allowed, because they're annoying.

    I'm still adjusting to the newness. I'm old and change scares me. I'll reserve further judgement and comment.

    Done.

    Undone.


    And in terms of most of it, it's nice. I'd rather have more tabs rather than five big conglomerate tabs, so that way people get presented EVERYTHING they need to see (read: the forums) right up front. And does the home button need to be there? You can just click the logo. Maybe put the home signal on the bottom corner of the logo.

    But aesthetically, my two complaints are this: the bar needs to be a darker red, and yet a bolder red. And the background border part needs more flair to it. The broken crack stuff is alright, but that only covers a small area. It also looks like a choice from an old Geocities site I made when I was 12. You can't go wrong with stripes and contrast. I dunno exactly, since ain't no artsy fartsy big city lawyer type. But I do know that it lacks zazz.

    You just gotta zazz it up.

    No, no words. No words to describe it. Poetry! They should have sent a poet!

    Oh wait, I am a poet. Ahem:

    Shiny new front page
    Still can't say fuck in comments
    Otherwise happy
