In the sites defense, it's still a work in progress. Its working a lot better than it has been earlier today and last night. 

It's gotten much snappier even since this morning.

The only thing I used the front page for was the hot topics section. So i have never really looked at the other areas to make a full decision on if it is better or not. I can see why some people don't like it and some do. I think it was a step in the right direction but now needs tweaks to it based on community feedback.

Right now from what I am seeing it is just the front page that is still running slow. Talon's main focus is to get everything loading as fast as it should be then fixing bugs and anything else we've overlooked.

The front page is definitely working a lot faster for me now.

That is good to hear. At least on my end, it isn't where we would want it to be. For me it takes 10-15 seconds to load.

Little bug with the pagination. Not sure if it's been noted yet.



It's working a lot better today than yesterday. Very fast, quick to respond today, not used to this site responding this quickly! Plus the Borat add breaking the scroll bar is gone today, much better. Otherwise, it still looks mostly the same to me, cleaner look, renders faster, feels good.



I like the new look, but it seems to revert back to the old looking you get off the beaten path.

We haven't redesigned the entire site yet. The main changes were on the front page, articles area, profiles, and settings. We do have plans to update the rest of the site in the future. We just wanted to push the redesign live before the next-gen consoles, which we just barely did.

I've noticed fast load times mucb of the time today, but still far too many super slow loads. To the OP..... I'm neutral on the look. I like it, but I think I'd like it a lot more with fewer graphics on the homepage. If that happens, it'll be a significant upgrade over the old look. Regarding functionality, because of the slow loading, I haven't really tried much out. In general though, I just read articles and participate in the forum. So, I don't expect a lot of impact on my usage of the site anyway.
