What are these vote choices? Is 'SUCKS AF' supposed to be worse than I hate it? It doesn't sound worse, but it's lower than 'hate it'.
- Love it! - Like it. - Indifferent - Don't like it. <--- - Hate it!
It has many changes and new features that are a welcome addition, however it feels in-your-face big and the same time having plethora of tiny icons, numbers, details, and links everywhere. It's very confusing and intimidating, even for someone that's been visiting this site for over 10 years. I can't imagine what's new user experience might be like. My first impression upon it's initial roll out was overall negative, but I already see new improvements in the right direction. It looks much better compared to just few weeks ago.
Gamebanana's layout changes are never ending, we will surely continue to see more improvements to the new layout and people will get used to it over time. Nevertheless, I really think there is too much information and too many things going on at once.
It feels very cluttered and my eyeballs can't handle all the icons, images, buttons, hover effects, dropdown menus, popups, divs, icons overlaid over images with zoom and fade effects with popups with even more icons, images, and links, text colors, background colors, text background colors, and div background colors. I feel that there is not enough priority and clear enough divisions. It's all just there. All of it at the same time, in your face for you to try and make sense of it as you attempt to take in the overflow of information. It's not quiet, it's loud and noisy. Somehow it feels scattered while simultaneously being crowded.
Maybe that's just what makes Gamebanana so unique and such a special place like no other. Now if you'll excuse me, I will seclude to my profile and purge it of everything that I can so that I may have a peaceful place to hide in.
