    The skin works, the colours match and everything is still in the same place... unlike some mod databases with gigantic icons and eye-bleeding colour schemes...

    Wow, I'm away from the internet for only a night, and this!

    Anyway, gj munro. I'm still getting used to it, but it looks quite good.

    Looking at it, I think it needs cleaning up abit. It just screams cheap, and the blue is heavy.

    I wish I had the old layout, any chance that the website skin can be chosen user-side?

    Like the old layout; it was simpler. This could be very nice with a few cleanups.

    Please don't put logos next to the titles. Makes it feel like a cheapo Valve site D:

    EDIT: Yeah, new content!

    yea me too.

    and sorry, but this just looks very bad. Like you got photoshop for two weeks or so, the bevel effect shouldn be used, or at least with SHARP edges.
    The HL2 original orange is nice indeed but not with this faint blue ... well pretty much all about the header, the rest is ok for me - didnt changed much.

    but the old header had real style, this looks just like newbie arts.

    Whenever I look at the front page...god, it's so heavy and oppressive I feel like a 10-ton weight has just dropped onto my shoulders. I mean maybe it's appropriate, making the reader feel like they're under the heel of some vast oppressive occupation force, but it sure is annoying. :<

    I hate Fallouts design. It's too plain, for one thing. And there forums are horrible.

    We do need a sleeker design, though.

    Like I said, this is 2006! Stop with the rectangles and 1-tone colors! :cheers:

    A new design would be nice. I can't say I agree with you on the forums tho. :p

    My new design for HL2.net (no, I'm serious - in a vague sense - I think we need something clean and cool and clinical, not bulky like an Amstrad from the 80s. The text is there because...well, you can imagine how much fun it is filling in all the holes in the letters that were already there with whatever colour you want to put in):

    I quite like the look after the change... better than it was before anyways

    :)

    I quite like the top banner on the hlfallout site, and the general layout, far too much white though, not so easy on the eyes (nearly put "eye" there, then i thought, hey, i have two....)

    :E

    I concur Sulk. Cool and clinical. The strider walking through the street would be awesome enough.

    Erm... I thought the site underwent a visual update not that long ago?

    It's ok, but I vastly prefered the design of the site before this one by leaps and bounds.

    Good job on the updates Munro...
    Sulk's idea would be novel, a strider walking across the top banner :p

    @Kami : I logged onto the brother site, and saw you as the last post in "Updates, Updates!" and also in this one :)
