They said they were going to announce something 'new features' etc...

What was it?

White Giant Bomb!

Yeah I know it wasn't announced there but still... I wanna see Giant Bomb in white.

Yeah, we kind of got caught up in the moment and forgot to talk about new stuff. We were going to show a bit more of the white site and talk a bit more about an upcoming addition. We'll probably get to that this week or next.

Only if they can make the colors blend well... I think lighter gray would work better. Comicvine hurts my eyes, so I hope if they use white, it's not that bad.

There's a picture in one of the developers blogs. I think it's snide's.

They're racist.

I'm hoping my suggestion goes through... a coupon for a free dozen of Krispy Kreme doughnuts for every 100 Wiki points.

Aww.... It does look like ComicVine... That's way too light... It's going to hurt my eyes. :( Argh.

Edit: It looks like people will be able to choose between the two color schemes, sweet! That solves the problem then. :D

i hope its only an option like at gamespot

#14 Posted by MerlijnVH (108 posts) -

Yeah, it will be just an option from what I've gathered. When the site launched there were people who didn't enjoy the black look and wanted something brighter, on the other hand there are obviously people who won't like a white look.

I'm actually curious and looking forward on how the advertisements will turn out, how they will be integrated, what sort of advertisements we will be getting and the impact it will have on the general user experience of Giant Bomb.
