Some people have already begun commenting, so I thought I’d start a proper post so we can have all the comments in one place.
As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’m working on a new site theme. The old one was (I think) very good looking but I’m weary of the thing now. I’m still working on this one. I might chuck it and start over. I might give it a new paint job. I’m not sure just yet, but I know we’re due for a redesign.
Later: Okay, based on feedback so far it looks like this design is:
- Too colorful.
- Not colorful enough
- Too businesslike.
- Too childish.
- Too clutterd.
- Too barren and stark.
I kid. Please don’t stop with feedback. I’m gathering it all up, and I’ll decide what I’m going to do once I see what the major problems are.
