Site Revamp
Feb 05, 2010 04:25:29

Yes, I seem to have picked up the web design reins and am adding some new visible and invisible additions that are long over due. In the coming days, you should see more and more small tweaks depending on how closely you're paying attention.

I'm still toying with theme and layout and front-page content and have considered putting actual content on the main page rather than the slew of links, but I hesitate as that changes the objective of a single pane of glass into the current news and would make things look more like every other blog site out there. I'm torn.

Right now the podcast pages themselves are in dire need of an overhaul and I'll tackle that next, along with membership updates. Thanks to those few that have hung in there during the lack of attention. Talk to you soon.. next time, perhaps about games.

I noticed you didn't link the logo banner in the upper left to your "home" address of, would be nice as that's commonly accepted by users for navigation.

Also kudo's on doing away with the black background finally, it just made the text more difficult to read, having it white right now makes that really obvious. :)

Enjoying the new look, Brent.

If you get a moment, could you add me to your list of blogs? I'm currently doing lots of STO stuff and planning an article on my impressions after a week of playing. Would like to have more links to my little blog out there!

Site looks great! Check out and see if maybe you may want to include the site in your links. I would appreciate it and I will pop VW into my list of link this evening. Nice job. "Sound for virtual worlds"

Interesting art work. Is it original? I like it and the new look. It was startling at first because of the great change in color, but the new site is easier on the eyes.

As far as hanging in their is concerned real life comes first, and merits a good deal of understanding when less important aspects of life must of necessity fall by the wayside, even if for a while.

You are still, and always be "the man" (well maybe after Rob Pardo).
