Hi guys,

I'm sure you've noticed, but we've changed the site design. It's been about 6 months since the front page layout has changed. I hope you think it's an improvement! I think it looks cleaner and more fitting to all of the recent changes =). You may notice most links are orange now - hopefully it's not too shocking! The goal for this is a visual cue - so anywhere you see orange text, you know it's clickable.

The goal was to make the whole site cleaner so first time visitors aren't scared by how cluttered everything looks. It's still a work in progress, but so far there are two main changes: 1) top and bottom navigations are simplified, and 2) the front page organization is changed to focus on videos, particularly our official simulcast shows.

Since the navigation is simpler now, there are less links so it might take some time to find where everything is (like Groups and Chat). Here are some of the things you might be looking for:

- The "Home" menu (Edit Profile, Account Settings, etc) is now next to your name at the top right (the down arrow)
- Your Favorites or Lists (if you have any) are now in the bottom black bar (the one that stays fixed and doesn't scroll)
- The Notification link is at the bottom right now
- Crunchyland and Chat are now under the Games main tab
- the Forum subtabs don't show all the main forum categories now, since they can't all fit, but you can find them all if you click directly on the Forum tab.

There might be some minor layout and white space issues - if you see any, please reply to this post or file a bug! In the next few weeks we'll improve the layouts of other key pages, so stay tuned for more awesome changes!

I like that the "home menu" is close to our names, and the notifications thing reminds me of facebook lol.. I didn't like it on there, but I think I like it here!
