A long night, long day and a new site

We relaunched PointBuzz late, late last night. I started the conversion and upload around 12:45 a.m., and gave up screwing around with it around 3. I got it to a point where it was mostly functional.

It was kind of fun to do that late night thing, but it still needs some work. I'm happy with how quickly it came together, and all things considered, a lot of things could have gone wrong. I feel like we have a platform to build off of now that's not cluttered and weighed down. It's crazy fast, which is a huge plus. I'm happy to see render times for pages around 5/100 of a second. That is such an improvement.

Now I just need to get down the list of stuff that still needs to be resolved and I'll be more or less content.

I'm loving it. Easy on the eyes and I especially like the park skyline along the bottom.

My only complaint is the excess whitespace. I would really like to see a distinction between the forum content and the advertisement column on the right. I realize that cosmetic "issues" are pretty low on the list.

You know, I was thinking about that a little too. Perhaps that right column does need to be a different color.

It was really hard for me to distinguish the two areas.

I agree about the whitespace, but overall I think it looks good. Nicely done.

I intentionally design it with whitespace, because Jeff loves whitespace. And what does that get me? :)

I love vertical whitespace, but that gaping horizontal whitespace screws with my eyes.
