Doesn't look too bad, I'm normal one of those people who has the opinion that if it an't broke don't change it.
But the new Rev3 isn't any worse than the old one, it does seem a little too flash for my liking but I have just changed my homepage to http://revision3.com/episodes and I could get used to it.
I do like the new episode pages though.

Site looks great!

It's going to take some getting used too but overall it looks pretty nice.

I'm really digging how the forum looks now.

Yea I like the forum and the video pages, although I agree the main page will take some getting used to, I have set my homepage to the main page again, I'm sure I will get used to it. Are there ads on it, because on my browser there is a some odd bits of empty space, but it could be because the ads are blocked.

The way everything slide I keep wanting to drag it with my mouse and move it like on an ipone.

I don't like the changes to the forum layout, it looks like you've taken a leaf out of eBay's book in regards to the topic listing layout, they're spaced too far apart now so you have to do more scrolling to look through the topic titles to find the one(s) you want to read. The cell padding variable is set a little too high.

The other thing I don't like is how you've changed the text colour from brightness level 132 right up to 255 whilst also darkening the background from 44 to 31, there's too much of a contrast now. Text brightness level of 190-200 would look better IMHO:

I like the extra contrast, I would't mid if they turned it down a bit I'm fine with it how it is.

You're right, I should have made it a PNG, would've been half the filesize.

My proposal for the text is as above, just dim it slightly, there I've dropped it down to 191 from 255, the slightly lower contrast makes it look better than the original but not as harsh as it is now.


edit: there's a small bug in the new layout, everyone has a thin grey line above their avatar.

Well, I've been fiddling around with it and all I can say is that I, personally, am DI-Double G-ing it! It doesn't look cleaner per say, but it looks so much more beautiful and modern. I am really loving the new bigger screen to just the right format it seems for most of the shows without losing quality. Also, the theater feature brings a good bonus to it.

Keep up the good work, I'm lovin every second of it.

Thumbs up Looks good...

I think the new site design is looking good! And I have noticed some new tweaks to the homepage already. So it looks like it will continue to evolve a bit from here. The new larger video player with the theater and pop out modes is a nice upgrade for sure.

I kind of miss the forum stuff at the bottom of the page, though It may not be necessary anymore.

And the way the 'features' slider is narrower than the rest of the content seems off to me. Maybe there should be some dark gray rectangles on either side behind the arrows to keep the grid in check.

edit: I think the homepage either just changed on me, or wasn't rendered correctly the first time, because the twitter feed just jumped from the right to the left, which looks better.
