While the old design shows up in a browser I don't use, the site looks the same as it always does in my regular browser, but maybe that is because I am using a skin...

Wow, no wonder you got rid of it ^^;, it doesn't fit well in my screen at least(and there's this huge-ass blank space up top).

I hope you guys don't move to a new design that's too bandwidth intensive like anipike did, that site take forever to load.

I'm new and it is pretty weird to see it like this. What is this theory that I read about.

I'm using a skin, so I don't see any change. Which one is the default?

Quick poll: What skin is everyone using? I'm using "Ethereal Ice."

I'm going to guess they're seeing if the columns get more hits the old way where they show up dead center at the top rather than the current way where they're off to the side. Same with the newest reviews getting a spotlight. I know that's one of the reasons I prefered the old layout to the current one.

If anything they'd go simpler. Tempest (and Cookie) has always been about making ANN accessable to everyone from what I've seen. This was one of the key reasons that the forum doesn't alow signatures.

So...this was the old style?? Really seems, the other was...hum...more...Neo?? xDDD I mean, this looks quite old (and sure reminds to other older times, jeje).

Anyways, I know worst examples of changing web style, this is not so bad...Very Happy

Yup, if you've set a skin, this won't change it on you, even if you set your skin to the default skin.

I liked the old way better, surprised me when they first changed it. Everytime they updated with a new Answerman I usually missed it the first day.

I dont really like this style to much, thats why I changed the skin to a better looking one. The old site Design skin is in my opinion less accessable than the current one. And I am all for Accessability in a website.

Yeah, I prefer the old layout way more than the new one. But the new one is alright too; it's not that big of a deal. Either way both layouts looks somewhat professional, easy to navigate and simple. Unlike other anime sites this site is one of the fastest loading anime sites out there. It hardly takes a blink of an eye to load up on my comp.. Plus the site is accessible to people with 56kbs unlike other sites that take 26 mins to load on a 56k. I like that.
