Poll: Old site vs. New Site (720 votes)

Old site 80%
New Site 21%

Let's get those initial impressions in, people!

Which one do you prefer at the moment?

Navigating this one is a pain in the ass.

Also it's hard to look at.

Old. They have the potential to be better, but there really is nothing very interesting about this new site.

Yeah, I just noticed this.

Christ this thing is a mess. Even the poll looks awful.

What high school drop-out designed this crap?

It's hard to believe, but there's actually more bitching and whining on this site than the old one.

What? The new design is terrible.

There are so many more unnecessary things, it's harder to navigate, and it's harder to look at.

I guess once people get their sigs and avatars in it will be little easier to look at posts.

This site isnt even done yet. This is merely a shell of whats to come. Relax, people. This is much cleaner and more "modern", if such a term can be used for this. Cant wait to see whats in store.

it says right there (21 votes) and then the percentages of those 21 votes. Sure you can't see the amount until you vote.

The main site looks ugly and difficult to spot articles, along with navigating the site. Reading through these posts is kind of a pain as well.

This is beyond skewed at this point. The new site has been up for a few hours. People shouldn't judge at this point.

I don't know, there are things I like and don't like. I think in the end I'll like this new site more though once the bugs are worked out and I adjust to it.

One thing I like is that the forums are incredibly mobile friendly compared to the old forums.

Edit: There is no button at the bottom of a thread to return to the topic list. That is really annoying.

This is far from cleaner. There's more crap all over the place.

And if it's not done, why the hell did they release it now?

That's the point. We can look back at this thread a year from now and laugh at how one-sided it is.

Hopefully we'll laugh.

Yeah, we'll laugh.

This is garbage. There are some positives however the actual look of the site and the navigation is just so bad. Why couldn't they have just left the old forum layout and profile page for the most part alone and just changed the homepage and added a few insanely must have important things like a facebook/twitter link. Forums aren't supposed to look modern and if anything, it will actually turn people away.

I'll look back and laugh at this obvious damage control.

Most of us will leave...

I haven't had any bugs yet but the navigation and UI is terrible.

I like many checked in daily for the top stories and stuff particularly news related. This new site lumps everything together and removes top stories. That old feature should have remained. Honestly don't know why it had to be removed

I just want a function saying "Go back to the old site" option. I don't want the multimedia. I come here for quick blips of goodness. I don't watch the videos. I don't watch the "cool" girl gamers talk. I want concise articles that are informative and timely.

Seriously eyeballing IGN for my news now. Kinda sucks.

This new site sucks ass so far. It loads WAY slower than the old site for me and I keep getting errors. Hell I had to page back 4 times just to get this thread to load. First time I got a "file not found". The next three times just loaded an blank white page.
