I might get a lot of hate for saying this, but I don't like the new design changes. I always liked the old simplistic design.


as old user i could barely navigate it if i was completely noob i would never find the forum part of the  interface which you should see a decline in numbers in the next 3 months  thats just my honest opinion net me know if you see a decline in forum activity the best thing to do if that happens  put forum on first page as option and geting started when some one first views page.


you know to be fair maybe you should go back and do this to the store that needs an over hall not arena rise with us  like this fancy stuff would made more sense at the main website 

 


I don't like it. Not a fan of the new default Jim Carey avatar, and then I couldn't figure out where to change the avatar in the navigation. I ended up finding a link in a bug report in the forums. I don't like the color scheme, it's too bright and too industrial. The whole thing is way too busy. I don't understand why the quest page is right aligned, it looks wrong. I kept thinking the page had bugged out and loaded wrong until I realized it was actually done on purpose. I don't like that you can't go to other pages of posts in a forum thread at the bottom, you have to scroll back up to the top. Why take the bottom page links away? That's bad usability. 


The new design is terrible, very uncomfortable on desktop. Why they don’t leave a choice between old and new design?!

This design is unusable on desktop. The giveaway section looks like a car crash. 


It's a terrible design, but i still hate it!!!

 

Had to make my own since op just loves the new ui so much 


Looks like a failed abortion attempt, something only AWA staff could feel pride about


I'm not saying it doesn't look good because no one can argue about the aesthetics if you  compared this to the old one. It really looks nice.

But AWA is a site (or should that be "was" now?) made MAINLY for community interaction/engagement and this type of layout just does not fit that purpose. It's too space inefficient and hardly maneuverable. A design like this is more proper for an online shop or something like that. 

And no, I'm not saying this because I "hate change" or whatever, hell I love changing the layout of a few of my websites more often than not whenever I feel like making a new design. But that's because I made those for me, I don't cater to an audience and they're mainly for show. With AWA, you have thousands of members using the site daily, which should have been taken into consideration before deciding on a change that basically affects accessibility and usability.

Then again, despite what I think. I'm certain nothing will come of it. Just have to suck it up and "eNjoY" the new site.
