    Well as you can probably tell the new design is live. I am still testing to make sure nothing broke so if you spot anything not working correctly please PM me, submit a bug report, or send me an email via the link at the bottom of the page.
    When I die, I want to die peacefully, in my sleep, like my grandpa did. Not like the screaming passengers in his car.

      I absolutely love this new design, especially the themed designs for each decade. Absolutely awesome. I do need to point out though that Pokemon and Dexter's Laboratory belong on the 90s design instead of the 00s one, but just a minor nitpick. Other than that it's a grand slam.

          I like how the show's logos change as you refresh the page. Very nice touch.

            Yeah, Pokemon came out in 1998 and was very mainstream in 1999. Perhaps you could replace Pokemon in the 00s design with Yugioh. Yugioh became popular in the early 2000s and Pokemon's commerical mainstream had faded by circa 2002 (in large part because of Yugioh).

              Definite improvement! I'm glad this whole New Coke fiasco is over.

                So nice to have that old fashioned charm mixed with the newer layout. It's great!

                  I like it a lot.

                  We should start contacting some of the older users who left after the last design was implemented.

                    There's more life into this look. I like this.

                        I think we should ban 5 users in sacrifice for receiving this glorious update. Volunteers? Don't make me pick names out of a hat people.

                            There's a user called PorkSword? Jeez..

                            Also notice the user forums are gone, and a few have been added to the main categories. I'll miss the word association game! Link, Sauruman and Cyber Bishop have been removed as mods too.

                              He made some kind of article about his collection of gaming consoles, Ultimate Fighting and Call of Duty action figures. But the obscene picture at the end made users upset with him.

                                  That is in bad taste. I thought I could remove things from articles, but I can't.

                                    Why not do a clean-up and weed out "bad" articles. I understand the importance of showing future writers what NOT to do if they write an article, but it would help to maintain a level of quality on the site.

                                    Or you could make the site 18+ so that you wouldn't need to worry about "objectionable material".

                                          Very cool. The only things that I'd change would be to make the sides of the pages that are now sort of tan, white. Also, the words at the top that says TV, Movies, Articles, etc. I would make them more "bubbly" like the Retrojunk logo. I suggest the Herkules font. Or the Dukes of Hazzard or hobby headline font.
                                          Don't pay any attention to the evil spirited and dead of heart. They're not worth your time.
