New Site Template

Check it out, website overhaul.

I like everything but I'm not sure I'm sold on the background image. Input would be welcome.

  1. New fresh layouts are a good idea every so often, but you need something darker m8. You need some help or anything just let me know.

  2. Meh, the background is kinda tacky, especially with the floating black text boxes. I think something a little cleaner would be nice.

  3. A night and day pic of europe is lame you should have a eve screen shot as the background maybe you in your carrier at a planet or moon.

  4. How about switching Earth for that planet that blew up just before wormholes came out?

  5. I'll be blunt: I think background images look kind of tacky. Your old layout made the site look a lot more clean, but my aesthetic taste is garbage, so by no means take my opinion seriously.

  6. I generally like the approach of the new design: color choices flow well, the concept of the background is cool, etc. However, I'd add the following caveats:

    (1) Use an EVE planet, not Earth.
    (2) If you plan to have a graphical background, change the title banner to something simplistic or geometric rather than another screenshot.
    (3) Graphics in the sidebar don't fit inside their respective boxes.

    But I like it a LOT more than the old site. Readability is improved, too.

  7. This is a nice concept, but the background just doesn't go with the rest of the site. Maybe a shot of Caldari Prime to reinforce Kirith's Caldari heritage? Or a shot of the Eve Gate? But I don't know how you would modify the Blogger template to add that.

  8. I think this is the 3rd blog I follow that has this wallpaper of earth as the background. By default, it needs changing. However, I think the above comments are better for what to change your background to as I'm not real sure.

  9. hehe just noticed the change.

    I had to change mine up too. Something was wrong with the template I was using, for some reason it was very slow. My new simple template works a treat and I even removed the title image in favor of plain text simplicity.
