No seriously, it's admirable to try and get all those sites on the main page above the fold, but so so so much text that looks exactly the same, it's very distracting because your eye gets drawn in six directions at once. A few less news feeds (they're repeative, we all know) or maybe an option to take a cookie that'll screw out the ones you don't really care about would be nice. There's just so much in one place, either the info gets lost or you get lost.

I'm the last one who should ever be pointing out asthetics, but that's not gonna stop me from saying a nice font and more colors would be peachy, sorry.

If you could rig a script to fix 1wrestling's capitalization, that'd be neat but somehow I have this odd feeling based on past behavior that they won't be sticking there that long.

I do admire the bigger font, I'll give them that.

Otherwise, it's a bit, I dunno, loud? Not sure what was wrong with the old layout that they needed to change.

What in the crap, you have escaped my wrath for long enough, Scott Keith, and now your time has come.

">>Man, those people in the Delphi forum are pissed. I really wish I could just get them all a beer.<<
You'd have to wait about 8 years for it to be legal with most of them..."

Hahaha fuck you, you only visit the forum 80 times each day. And now I am avenged.

After Flea posted his IWC top 100, apparently a big stink of a thread was posted in the Delphi forum. CubsFan linked to it here, and I responded with the "Jeez, I wish I could get them a beer" line.

You can see Scott's reply which, given the fact that it's three months old, now seems oddly prescient.

Ah, internet stuff. Anyway, A1 looks like the old versions of the New York Times, before they bothered to make it, you know, something people liked to read.

Well thanks for taking over my thread there Justin, it's not like you couldn't have sent Scott an e-mail he would have ignored just as easily!

Tangent: It was a MISTAKE for me posting that link because I didn't realize it'd lead to people who don't post over there saying things about that nice board that they're not going to say over there. I have no problem with y'all calling anyone stupid because I've long ago called them stupid (and sometimes even really meant it) but I'd rather you did it to their face when I've made it really easy for you to do that. I did it the other way and people (like Justin C. Dawg right here) had no problem coming over here if they wanted to say something about something that was posted here, so maybe that's why I like that board later.

Or maybe I'm just more used to it.

Anyway, although Justin could've picked a better thread couldn't you have Justin yes you could've, I've got no problem with his comment because Scott tries to play deaf and dumb on Delphi (as opposed to...ah never mind) - if the only place he'll post is where he's not afraid on being called on his stuff (or where he really wants to be accepted!), then the people who want to call him on his stupid stuff are gonna come over there. And that's fine with me. EXCEPT WHEN IT'S IN A THREAD ABOUT SOMETHING I'M TALKING ABOUT JUSTIN.

Justin is largely right and Scott is largely a dork but what do I know

This post was far more effort than anyone should give this cummulative thread at any point, please keep that in mind.

I just went over to A1 and I agree the new design is a bit "loud" so to speak. What I found interesting is that 1wrestling is back up on their site. I though the last time they posted links on 1BOB, Ryder threateded them with legal action (like he has done to others about 10,000 times before) and they removed them.

Yeah, looks like they got over whatever beef they had with 1wrestling. If I recall correctly it was something to do with the name, 1wrestling was claiming that the name was too close to theirs and it was some legal mumbo jumbo regarding that.

I also recall when TNA launched they were linking to their site as well but soon pulled that after they realised Ryder was involved in some shape or form.

As for the new look? Looks bad.
