I know the design is not a top priority and pages with more content look better but, oh boy, the video page of a new show is a great example of how the new website lacks it's own personal character and feels like a soulless and unfinished generic template with buttons and text randomly placed.

Again, I know other pages don't look like this and I understand Giant Bomb is just one of the sites the team is working on. But I felt like this was a really great example of why most of us feel like the new site is a step down.

Not to mention that it's very difficult to see which are links vs just regular text in the description box.

probably a bug: https://www.giantbomb.com/shows/kane-cups/2970-19258 the video player doesn't match the width of the content below it - the panel is not wide enough.

@wemmick Can we get an estimate of when the rest of the items on the fix list will be done? Are we looking in the next few weeks? months? Also, can you please allow us to set grid/carousel view as a toggle that stays? I like to use grid much more and that would be wonderful.

@wemmick The quick looks show page is completely broken. When I click on the show page it takes me to a Trials quick look, which I don't understand why - its not the latest or the most recent quick look I watched. The most recent QL it shows in carrousel view is Dawn of Man from March 21. If I switch to grid view, the latest one it shows is Sunless skies.

I know you guys don't like hearing this, but the old design had so much more personality and polish than the current site. Obviously the latter comes with time, but how far down the roadmap (if it's on there at all) is the general look/design of the site? From the font treatments to the shadows, gradients, etc. the old site was 10000x better, to the point where right now it feels like we're navigating a template.

The new home page header is a massive step in this direction. I used to love how uniquely GB the site used to look, but this new redesign made it feel like a very by-the-numbers modern site, with all of those pitfalls.

The new header looks great and adds a lot to the "feel" of the site. I'm really looking forward to additional touches of personality in the future. Maybe some more red highlights?

100% This. More of this please @danauer !

@wemmick The new header promo looks nice. The gradient sidebar is a nice touch.
