Site Design Changes

We have made the following changes to the site design:

Front page:

1) Placed the thumbnails of 3 winners in finished contests, right under a contest title.

2) Removed news stories and left only contest directions. News stories can still be read on the contest and gallery pages in the left column ("Fueled by the following news").

3) For older contests (scroll down) on the front page there's only contest title and three thumbnails. For even older contests, there's only a clickable title, taking you to the contest pages.

4) Right column (with active contests, etc.) is now of light gray color to make it stand out from the left column.

Contest pages and Gallery pages:
Placed the thumbnails of 4 top entries in finished contests (and 4 top juror picked entries for galleries), right under a contest title.
E.g. take a look at Anna Nicole Smith contest

Overall we also changed the font design across the site.

Please let us know what you think of the above changes.

Three cheers all around. Great changes.


(for those using firefox, who would rather have the older size text rather than the new size, simply hit [ctrl] - and text size will drop a font.) This looks perfect on my monitor/resolution.

well it doesn't matter if u edited it, the important point is that u readed it and agreed with it. But for the people who do not readed it, it was just talking about the selected Pictures of the day (POTD), i said if there would be select more than one image as POTD from the same contest give some days between eachone when it will be show as POTD to make more variated show on the follow days of the selection. Normally i open the contest from were come from the POTD to get a refresh and check the old galleries so if by 2 consecutives days (or more) the POTDs come from the same contest, i think it would be kind boring...

that is was i remember i wrote

Hey NM i saw u changed too the trophies awards, well about this change i do not like it, now look so so so equal as Worth1000, i miss my lions on my desk. Why to be an independent, republican or democrat if we will not have more longer the trophies that we deserve? But as i said before, any desition from u will be well received by me , keep giving the best from u to us NM.

The problem with customized clan trophies is that they are
confusing to non-member visitors. Since these don't really look like trophies
it makes the site more complex to understand for the new folks, and less eager
to join. We still have different colors to show clans distinction.
