The new look

Ok, the LGDB site got a shiny new outfit!
A nicer place for all the great native linux games that are already listed and the ones that will be added in the future!
Let me know what you think of it, and of course let me know if you experience any problems with the new layout.

(On a more technical side note: the new theme is based on the [url=]Framework[/url] theme.)


First of all, I generally like the new look, especially the new logo (although I'm also glad that you've kept the background image of the old banner around - it demonstrates that Linux games can actually look good). It's also nice that you can see the list of players on the game page itself instead of clicking [Game]->Players all the time. Or maybe it was there all the time and I didn't notice...

And now the [i]criticism[/i]! ;)

The front page looks rather crammed now. I think the poll should be placed on the left side - maybe between "Popular games" and "Recent Comments"? That would give "LGDB for players" and "LGDB for developers" a little more room (-> look less crammed).

The Wormux link in the Game news is too long for the small column and sort of spills over to the Space Cubes Descent news - I guess you'll need to keep the link names short for that layout. Having more width for each news item may be nice but I can't come up with a better idea on presenting the news. You [i]could[/i] mash them all together and label each news item "Game news", "Game update", etc. but I'd prefer to see latest news/update/addition at a glance and not scroll through a lot of other stuff until I can spot (e.g.) the latest game addition.

So I guess it's ok to keep it the way it is now. Unless you feel the need to write something like [url=]Supercal... any news text should fit in. ;)

Hope I didn't sound too negative - I'm just tossing around ideas...

Glad you like it, and yes, the users that play a game are new on the game page,
Thanks for your ideas. I implemented your first suggestion, looks quite nice.

Oh, you're quick. Looks a lot better now. :)

Btw, the (long) Wormux link in the news looks alright in Firefox, so I guess it's just my (Windows) browser K-meleon that apparently can't do line breaks in long links. Yet..
