Err,,, I consider this design a classic; so I'm expecting that the admin group really thought about their choice regarding migration to a new design.

Can we at least see some previews (so that we can say yay or nay)?

While the current design may be classic, it is not very good structurally. I am not designing it, it has already been designed by someone else and is currently being coded into the site. With that in mind, taking a vote wouldn't serve much of a purpose, since I am not about to lose all the money spent on the design and coding already. Also, the fact that I have to redesign the site regardless, do to the navigation problems, would mean that I would have to get it redesigned again.

The navigation problem is a result of only having a navigation bar on the home page and not on any other page. The rule of thumb with websites is that you should allow people the ease of navigation no matter what page they are on, aka a navigation bar on every page. Animetric has 3/4 of the people that visit the site coming to an initial page other than the home page, so most of the people that visit do not have that ease of navigation.

I am sure some people will like the new design and and some will not, that's inevitable. However, for the growth of the site, it is important that I fix the navigation problems, as well as update a couple other things.

Don't worry, the same stuff will still be there, just look a little different, and it will be easier to find reviews and stuff. :wink:

Well, I don't imagine people will think the site has been ruined, but I know so people will probably like the old design better. I can't please everyone, but I hope most people will like the new look.

Thanks for the quick response admin. Its sad, but I was not able to be as prompt with my response. I'm pretty sure I'm getting what you're saying about the code; and I agree that it would be absolutely stupid to throw away everything. However, I wished that we could see aspects of the design so that we can say whether or not it feels right (and partly because I really, really like the artistic aspect of the current design). I mean, the artistic aspect of the redesign is the only thing we can critique and ask you to change, without you having to spend $$$ (unless you're hiring some artist).

Sorry for the delayed response to your question concerning the redesign. I would rather not have input from a number of different people with differing tastes and ideas on how the site should look. It will just cause me to pull my hair out in frustration, well, more so than I already am (Looking at you Sub, j/k j/k :D ). I will make it look as best I can, but really it won't be that different. The basic layout is exactly the same, it's just red instead of blue and white. Almost the entire purpose of this redesign is to get a navigation bar on every page, with an updated feel as an added bonus.

I am talking with the other moderators concerning their thoughts on the design and colors and such. Taking their input and suggestions into consideration. They are keeping me in check and making sure I don't do anything too crazy. Three points of view on the matter should be enough though. The more people you add, the more difficult it is to come to a decision.

I thank you for wanting to give me your input on it though.
