people can now start surfing on http://www.tvrage.com:8080, some layout changes still have to be made, but we hope to have it online asap, any bugs that people can find would be helpful to paste here and also if you don't like certain things paste them here.


after a month if a lot of members still dislike the layout, the old layout will be put online again on a separate URL

thanks for the sneak peek! here's my initial 2 cents...

1.) Countdown Favorite Shows (front page), Info Center, My Schedule, and Friend List:
I'm still seeing the black text with red background in these sections... I thought it had been decided to change to white text (like the rest of the site) so it can be seen clearly... In addition, The Info Center subheadings are white text against a gray background - barely visible. See the example below - can you see the "About TVRage" subheading (in between the red layout)?



2.) My Shows and My Episode Viewing History... A light (thin) grid outline would be helpful (to see all the way across).

3.) Background on Profile Page - that red background is really difficult to look at (hard on the eyes). I know not too many people use this section, but I do... Would much prefer the gray background with black text.

4.) Guestbook. Um, the white text against a gray background can't be seen at all - please change back to black text. See example below:



Otherwise, I do like the simpler layout.

It's much worse. Colors are bad, Very complicated. It's like 1995's html websites. I think tvrage much have design which tracks web 2.0 line.
Maybe i'm cruel but this is real. Current design is better
Also

If you look this search button backgroud is WHITE not TRANSPARENT . it look amator also

Please don't take this the wrong way, but the colors make me want to rip my eyes out of their sockets, especially (#99071a). I realize that this was probably intentional, being that this color induces a 'Rage' like effect in people.

I prefer the more neutral/earth tone colors of the current site.

Also, the site navigation bar at the top needs either divider lines (border-bottom: 1px solid #000000), or alternating background colors, in addition to offset hover/mouseover colors.

well sadly, the layout change is gonna happen, there will be a few more changes,
but will keep the old layout online as well for those who choose to continue surfing there, so no worries to those who hate it http://old.tvrage.com or something will exist

also would like to mention this is a gateway layout, should been online a lot sooner but we had some problems with the designer we hired, we hope to have a better budget with this one and do things like giveaway and other things,
begin 2011 we will start production on a completely new version TVRage coded from scratch with tons of unique features never seen before on any website,
but a budget has to be saved up for that then it will take 4-6 months to complete, so it will be a while. but in the meanwhile we will also keep adding new features to the new layout and also change things so they look more appealing as things move along.

thanks for you input all, as i thought the opinion on the new layout will be about 50/50 , hope to hear more complaints and bugs.

I like the new layout,

think the colors are nice, but colors are always a matter of taste.
And as users can decide whether to use the old or the new layout, all should be fine

I hope it's not finished yet. There are a lot of CSS and javascript errors in the code.

Also, when logged in, the middle column doesn't even render for me on Firefox 3.6.3.

PS: If you need a designer, I will work for contrib points (see trystiansky.com for a template example).

could you provide me with a screenshot of that Trustian,

as for the layout, the designer we hired didn't work out as well as we had hoped, but for now we are stuck with it since there is no more budget, and i said a complete newly recoded website will be done as soon as possible where we will take every design aspect serious and analyze it for the best user friendliness,
but feel free to make a mockup of a layout for TVRage, even if it's just one for the frontpage or show/person/episode pages would be much appreciated, and you'll get all the CP points that you want lol
like the site trystiansky.com, but this needs to be light colors.

anyway :no promises if you do make the templates, but if the structure is good i will most certainly implement it in show/person/episode pages.

also any help for people who will now use the BETA site and see errors, it's all much appreciated, but if there are errors, screencap always helps to make it easier to identify the problem and what brower

The color scheme seems to be the main complaint. Just a sugestion: why not use "skins"? You already have style sheets in separate files, so if you add an option in the profile (even a cookie would work most of the time) you could easily let people choose among different color schemes.

Well, this change was basically a layout only change, the coding is the same as it always been, we hope this will bring in some more revenue so by 2011 we can hire a group of coders to completely redo the whole TVRage site, fixing the mistakes that currently can't be fixed, skinning will be possible, more extensive social profile pages and a lot more secret features that will be revealed by then, only thing i can say is to build up your contribution points since you can do a lot with them in the 2011 version.
