Say hello to the refreshed AotW homepage

We've got a few guys who want to introduce themselves.

You must have noticed by now that there is more info about the ads on the homepage. Hope you like it.

As always just let me know if you notice any bugs or errors.

Shame you didn't use Comic Sans in the speech bubbles but a good step forward ;-)

A further improvement for AotW would be redesigning the navigation bars.

Only a rotation could fix it. Anyway, in real sizes they are cool. I like 'em. Unfortunately now I can't browse the site anymore from my phone :-/

Kewell new look, Ivan.

Maybe include a 'hand' icon for Experiential?

What's experiential means exactly?

I like the icons; don't like the stars (makes the layout too busy). Already said it in another post.

That's true, but how else shall we do it? People want to see the rating before they enter the page.

Really? I don't really care what others think and I just want to see it myself. I never fill in rating either.

They want to see it because it helps them decide which ad to see first if pressed for time.

I am with you, Jack. I am surprised people want to see other people's ratings...

Well, it depends on what type of computer you have. It does add a bit more CPU because of the effect. Is it a Macbook?

one aspect that keeps on bothering me is the flash video player. you just can't pause it and have it preload the file. I get stuttering video all the time. that makes watching them sometimes rather tedious. (I'm aware of the qt files but thought I'd mention it.)

I made the files smaller. Is it working any better now with latest videos?

It's not the right topic but I guess there's a bug with avatars. I try to upload a new one but nothing happens. I delete the actual pic, save, choose another avatar and it reverts back to the previous pic. Cleared even my cookies but it's the same.
