I think I'm the only one who doesn't like the new design.
The old one was much more stylish, this new one is just like millions of other web pages. There's way too much text and squares on it for a start page. I'm sorry for saying this, but the new site looks like some amateur had done it (someone like me). The old one really had style. It looked somehow royal, like Queen's music and shows.
Put me firmly in the 'undecided but probably veering to the side of thinking that the new design doesn't look particularly great' camp.
I'm all for change, I just prefer to see change for the better, and layout/design-wise, I'm not sure if the new front-page fulfills that condition.
>>I liked the old one better. Easier to navigate
Could that be just because you were used to the old one?
I like it, it's nice to not have the lame Freddie Tribute on the page anymore (which more often than not were written in some other language)
"it's nice to not have the lame Freddie Tribute on the page anymore"
- um...its still there...and its as disturbing as ever.
EDIT: I now realize you may have been referring to an actual post from the tribute being displayed on the home page. My apologies.
It's all right looking. It will take time to get used to it. Blue is my favourite colour, but I think another colour would suit best. It looks like QOL mb with all the blue.
Still great job Richard. :)
On the whole, I like the new look. I do have one small gripe; I miss the cool picture from 1979/80-the one where Freddie looks as he did in the "Crazy Little Thing" video and he is wearing what looks to be a straitjacket. It is a small thing, but I miss seeing it on the home page.
