  • Your thoughts on the new Bloody-Disgusting

    I know a lot of you die hards are too cool for the main page, but if you check it out let me know what you think here. It's still in the development stage and we'll be adding/changing a lot of things as time goes on so now is the perfect time to get your voice heard.

    Be specific though, if you don't like it tell me why and what should be done to change it. "Chrisby" like comments will be ignored

    Also if you find a bug or something that doesn't seem to be working properly let me know and if possible provide a link and we'll take care of it right away.

      I think the logo on the main page needs to be on the forums. So superior to the current one.

      Have you ever thought about skins for the board? Like, the one before this current one was the best skin ever. I was in love with it. I wish it were still around.

      Otherwise, it looks great.

        I like the new alternating story shuffler that highlight the current news, I don't exactly know what to call it. It's currently rotating between Spiral - Eden - My Bloody Valentine - NOES. Anyway, I like the professional look it brings. The only aspect I didn't really like was the location of the three google ads at the top where the banner used to be. I'm not saying to dump advertising, I understand it's necessity, but the ads are the first thing you look at. And with the larger single google ad along the right hand side, it looks at first glance like two thirds of the page is an advertisement.

        Maybe if the three google ads were worked in along the middle of the page, right above the horror headline section it might flow a little better and appear more seamless and unobtrusive. You could even leave the larger google add where it is, because it blends in adequately. Ultimately, I just think whatever banner or font used should stretch entirely across the top of the page. Right now the Bloody-Disgusting logo seems jammed in on the left.

        Just trying to help.

                The main page feels a bit crowded, but it definitely offers all you need in one spot. I'll get used to it. Good stuff.

                  thanks, the forums will be getting a mild makeover to so we can incorporate the new header. profiles will also be cleaned up and we'll include things like your user reviews and recent comments.

                  yeah i see what you're saying.. we have a lot more freedom now as far as ads go and i'll definitely try to makes the ads flow a little better. google ads are the defaults in all the rotations so once we start filling up our inventory you'll see them less.

                          Its pretty good. I would describe it as Pee-wee Herman in his prime meets Charles Barkley in his underwear.

                          Anyways, I like how you guys have different sections. Its pretty cute.

                            I dunno, I notice two things that make me go "hmmm":

                            1. Ads are now default anyone-can-get-em-for-their-blog Google ads versus the ads that seemed to come from more pro sources.

                            2. No longer part of the Crave Network (go check out www.craveonline.com)

                            Front page really just looks like a few things got shuffled around at the same time #1 and #2 happened.

                            Something you're not telling us here? Did Ryan and shocktillyoudrop.com push you guys out?

                            I second some of the other boardies. It's about the community here on the boards for me. The front page is either skewed reviews or stolen content from other sites. There's a reason why Entertainment Weekly called this the #1 fansite and not the best professional entertainment journalism site for fans of horror.

                            Really, you guys should just shut down the news portion of this site and let the boardies just hang out with each other here.

                            I'm here because the conversation is cool and the posters are more knowledgeable and of a higher cultural caliber than other horror sites.
                            Face it sucka, we're thieves and we're bad guys, that's exactly what we are!

                              Honestly, it reminds me of Dread Central. Not that that's a bad thing, or anything.

                              For what it's worth though, I thought the old BD had a much more distinguished look.
