The NEW BoardGameGeek
So as to add to the many threads that have popped up today, I've decided to add my own.
Has anyone seen the new layout for BGG?
I for one think the move is rather ill-implemented. I know Aldie quit his day job to bring us this but I think it shows by the now 50% of content belonging to ad banners and boxes. The site looks really cluttered and busy, mostly because there is no real color scheme to speak of. A little shading to the left and top bars would help a lot, making it a bit easier on the eyes. I fear new users might find the site a bit unintuitive and uninviting (as I do).
I went to my profile to keep my collection up to date and noticed there's a huge box of block ads right above the 'games' box, as well as all around it. I know I could pony up $25 to get rid of it but I have a hard time blowing money to make a website viewable. BGG was the only site I've ever donated to and I hope they fix a lot of the growing pains so I can do so again.
So what do all you guys think?
