New HT redesign
 
Just casually checked the HT.com site and I noticed some changes. What you all think?

I like it. The official site has always been well done with exception of the boards at times.

First impression's a good one for me. I'll have to dive through a few pages though. :)

At least the crappy click-through "splash page" is gone - that alone is a HUGE plus!

Yeah, that was bothersome at first, but I just changed the link in my favorites to take me directly to the home page.

As far as the re-design, eh, I'll get used to it. I've never been the type that usually digs 'change', but I rarely have a choice. :)

its more of a freshening than a change.

Seldom go there except for roster changes. I get my info right here and through the occasional "heads up" email.

I like the new design a lot! The one thing I hated about HT.com's old layout, was it looked like something I could have made, and I only have like 2 years of experience in HTML. The website looks a lot more "current."

Very nice. I like Nick, he seems to really enjoy reaching out to the fans to get their opinion. It might be his job, but he seems to enjoy doing it.

OK so where is Brooke Bentley going? Demeco let it out of the bag during their interview. Anyone know.

I for one have enjoyed the job she has done. I wish her luck in next stop.

I have no clue where she's going, but I'm going to miss her interviewing the players.

She probably got a job with BSPN...

Kinda obvious Brooke wouldn't be here long.

Ain't ugly and has a clue. Nice combo...

I'm sorry :smiliedance:

I'm sure this is for more money and chance to start her way up the ladder, so I wish her luck.

I thought the same thing when I heard about it this morning. I didn't catch what she was going to be doing there if it was mentioned.

I liked her work with the Texans website. I wish her luck

Haven't been to the official boards since this one was transferred here. Perhaps I've become use to this board but I never liked the board software at the official site since they changed from this one.

I also noticed that TT has a new banner, well done!
