New look for Arch website?

Just noticed the Arch site has a new look, and the title graphic is now a link big_smile
Nice work!  Still nice and clean, just like Arch.

My only (admittedly small) gripe is that it looks quite blue on my monitor here at work.
I think I prefer the #f9f9f9 background of the forums to the new #eeeeff, but otherwise -- LOVE IT!

Is the rest of the site going to get the same look? (forums, wiki, etc)

yes.

I think each site should look completely different. Can one of them be red and black themed?

Re: New look for Arch website?

I love it! Though some things I would change though... Hope they bring this design soon to FluxBB.

Re: New look for Arch website?

The change came to me as complete suprise! Nice tongue
I really like the desing, only thing that sticks to my eye is the violet(?) background. I don't really see need for that.
But yeah, overall: excellent. Keep up the good work!

Re: New look for Arch website?

The new site looks very nice. I think the redesign looks a lot more professional and I like the dark colors. Great job :thumbsup:

I'm curious to see how much the forum look will change.:p

Looks good, though.

Re: New look for Arch website?

Not sure if want...

Is there a reason package search box is so big?  Header needs same padding as body on L and R, logo too small, looks like a wiki page.

Meh old one was perfect IMO

While I agree the old one was fine; MANY MANY people just couldn't/wouldn't see it.  You could direct them to the main page and say search for a package there and WAYYYY to many ppl would come back and say "I can't find it"

Just my guess as to the reason for different size/bg color of the search box


PLEASE read and try to FIX/FILE BUGS instead of assuming other have/will.

I totally thought the same thing but was not sure whether I should post it... Since you already did, +1.

Re: New look for Arch website?

Yes, it looks very good, and I'm not personally bothered by the size of the search box.

Nice job... to all of you that are involved with implementing the facelift!  cool

Re: New look for Arch website?

A little too purple, but glad to see no funky crap like all the other sites seem to be doing. (Wikipedia, Google, etc)


Personally, I'd rather be back in Hobbiton.

I like it, good work. (I liked the old one too, but this one actually saves some disk space and thus on my netbook makes a difference tongue)
