We'll also be tweaking it for some new site features, after which time we will begin making the appropriate changes to the other skins.


Now that you've mentioned it, I was meaning to bring this up for some time, but I think it would be beneficial for this site to add a printer-friendly option for you column articles, reviews, and interviews. With so many comprehensive and well-written articles that this site provides every day (such as the Shelf Life column, which I print every time a new article appears), it gets very cumbersome to be forced to print the skins that surround the articles. Other websites feature printer-friendly oprtions for their articles; heck, even Anime On DVD has a printer-friendly option for their reviews. I'm very surprise that this site doesn't have a printer-friendly option for their articles.

I hope you at least consider the option to make your articles printer-friendly. Idea

On a completely different tangent, has anyone seen the banner for The Locker? I'm easily spooked to begin with, but maaan, those glowing eyes freaked the sh!t out of me the first time I glanced at the banner. The website gives me the willies, too.

*shudders* I'm such a pussy when it comes to scary movies.

Some new design elements would be nice in addition to the skin/layout change... like maybe some new colors, a different elf-chick in the upper left (who is that, anyway?) and some new fonts. I know this would entail a great deal of work, but how long has it been since this stuff was changed? After all, this is "The Internet's most trusted anime news source," and I'd imagine with the volume this site receives, it might be beneficial to bring the look up-to-date.

Never mind. I'm an idiot and just browsed the "skins" menu for the first time in over 2 years. ANN rocks.

It's the Anime Castle ads that are the worse. I think they're trying to reinforce the stereotype that Anime is only ladies with big boobies.

That's a good skin.

I'm currently using the NERVous system skin, basically just because I love Evangelion so much.
