    Loving the new site. I went ahead and ordered some labels I've been wanting for a few Classics bots (Jazz, ML Soundblaster, G3 trailer and Hound/ Ravage). Now the waiting game...

    Still shit slow though unfortunately, or maybe it's just because this has been announced on tfw2005 and traffic is high?

    Yeah, unfortunately, this is what I was thinking too. It makes it hard to read. Any way of changing that blue text to white? Or even better, putting some sort of white frame around the names (since once you click on them they turn purple, which is just as bad against black as blue).

    Otherwise it looks nice!

    I think if I were them I wouldn't have a 600KB PNG for a background on the main page.

    Nice. I've never bought one of these before but I'm planning to if they ever release a set for DOTM deluxe Leadfoot.

    Looks good. But I have some advices for optimizing it more, if you have Photoshop: The PNGs with transparency could probably be replaced with GIFs and transparent background. Try using "Save for web" and then try 32 colors without dithering and if it looks not good, try the other options one after another. Finally in 256 colors it should at least look good but often you can use less colors for smaller pictures like those. At the bottom left corner you can see what the file size will be and compare it to the images currently in use.

    For the JPGs you can use the same, choose "Save for web" than JPEG in high quality and it will be probably smaller then now.

    Overall you can decrease loading time that way. Especially people who don't have fast internet will thank you.

    Even though most people have fast internet nowadays, you should always try to keep filesizes small for the internet. The same way programmers should not bloat their software just because the prices for hdds are very low.


    But other than that I really like the new design!

    Try my tips, maybe they are useful for you and you can gain some performance! =)


    Keep up the good work :D

    Improved, but still needs some work. Aside from the large useless splash image, readability issues, all the thumbnails along the main page just link to the category.
