Is anyone seeing this new website layout?  Is this a joke or what because it is pretty awesome and I want it to be real.  I don't want it to be a joke.

#2 Posted by rosebud04 (360 posts) -

yeah it keeps coming and going, and from what i can see it looks great. hope its not some April fool.

#3 Posted by PerryVandell (2103 posts) -

No, not yet.

depends... sometimes its there sometimes it isnt... its breaking my eyes 
 
edit: yeh i dont like this at all the font for everything seems different its seriously fucking up my eyes :s

It's not a joke, Alex has been working on this for some time. The only downfall is that on Firefox it makes the pages too wide, so I have a scrolling bar at the bottom now.

I like it.

Yep. It seems to appear on main message boards but not in individual threads. 
 
Scratch that: it randomly comes and goes.

#10 Posted by CptChiken (1987 posts) -

I really like it, but its coming and going.

#11 Posted by Fruitcocoa (483 posts) -

Hate it! :( 

#12 Posted by GunslingerPanda (4750 posts) -

It's horrible. Mouse over the forum tab, it spits out a big list rather than the 3 columns.

#13 Edited by MattyFTM (14384 posts) -

They talked about a new layout in the last whiskey media blog. I haven't seen it cropping up on the site yet like you guys are saying, though. 
 
EDIT: Just saw it by doing a hard refresh. Thought that might make it stick, but it disappeared. 
 
EDIT2: It's permanent now. Looks Nice. A couple of glitches, but once those are squashed it'll be brilliant.

Also, Alex who?  Navarro?

Mmm, it's running significantly slower on my work computer than the old website did... Guess I'll wait and see.

I am so glad it's not just me seeing this shit. I thought I was hallucinating again!

it's fucking up my already piss poorly achieved drippy header bar illusion thing i did on my profile background...

#19 Posted by Azteck (7449 posts) -

I really don't like it. It's too bulky and I don't like the fact that it doesn't extend across the whole screen when it's such a wide element.

#20 Posted by cnlmullen (900 posts) -

My interface was wigging out before. It was slow, but I think that might be because they haven't deployed it on all the servers yet. 

#21 Posted by JoeyRavn (4974 posts) -

I saw the title of this thread and thought "WTF is he talking about?". Clicked on it... new layout! It's fucking magic, I tell you.

#22 Posted by ViciousReiven (821 posts) -

It looks like shit, that ugly horrible simplistic style of shit like Youtube and the 360 dashboard did, why do people think that's a good thing? 
I seriously hope this is a joke, I don't want to have another website that I have to cringe at every time I visit.

#23 Posted by npeterson08 (502 posts) -

This popped up randomly while surfing the site, but I thought the colors were just inverted. Took a screen-shot because it looked weird/interesting.
#24 Posted by carlthenimrod (1594 posts) -

Looks pretty awesome to me. But it got me thinking how great it would have been to have a fake new design that looked like complete junk... Missed opportunity.. Maybe next year?

#25 Posted by DrPockets000 (2859 posts) -

Looks sharp.

Oh I see what you mean.  That's a bummer... just go into paint and realign a few pixels up.
#27 Posted by nickux (1385 posts) -

I love the new layout except for a few minor issues. When I click the search bar to starting typing, it expands which is really neat. However, anything to the right of that bar gets smushed and causes it to look a little off. 

#28 Posted by Kjellm87 (1728 posts) -

Sexy,
now about the new season of Bombcast....

#29 Posted by CptChiken (1987 posts) -

its just the banner thats different isnt it?

it will be sexy as well.
#31 Posted by Brendan (7810 posts) -

It's nice except for the forum tab, which when expanded inefficiently becomes a list that takes up far more space and becomes a list rather than the neat columns before it.

Same here. 
Except I knew of the new layout, i'd just yet to receive it.

@GunslingerPanda: Its not supposed to be like that. Give it some time. Things are deploying.

Kat (artist that does the quest icons) says she is working on something that Giantbomb users have been wanting since the new year.

@alexisg: If you are the famous Alexis, you have done great work.  Keep it up.  This site looks slick!
#37 Posted by Tearhead (2168 posts) -

I dunno, I think I like the old layout better, but whatever.

#38 Posted by ThePickle (4182 posts) -

I got it too. I hate it. Whiskey Media, don't become YouTube and start to change for no reason other than bored engineers. You have more important things to do. 

#39 Edited by Afroman269 (7387 posts) -

I'm liking this. Look nice on a big screen. 
 
EDIT: I don't want to refresh! STAY WHERE YOU ARE!

#40 Posted by Dtat (1623 posts) -

I think it's really slick. Hope it starts staying.

Sounds good, I wonder how it will be.
#43 Posted by ViciousReiven (821 posts) -

Oh fuck, it is real... 
Please for the love of all that is aesthetically pleasing give us the option to use the old header if we so incline, because I so incline, very much so.

#44 Posted by FesteringNeon (2164 posts) -

I do like the fresh feeling, but after checking my profile.. it is a little strange having the GB logo float in space and to not have a backdrop to my personal stuff in the top right corner. I might have to just change the background though.. : /

#45 Posted by xMP44x (2193 posts) -

I like it, in a strange way. If it isn't coming up for you, hold Control or Command depending on your OS, and press F5 or 'R'. However... there is a problem.
 

 
That isn't Helvetica... even though I have Helvetica on my machine. And yes, I'm just kidding, but seriously. I like Helvetica. All joking aside I dig this new design!
