I'd like to post a quick gripe about the text redundancy that's repeated in virtually every story posted on CelticsBlog.



Now, obviously this isn't a huge problem that's going to keep me away from the site or anything.  But, it has really become an annoyance.  Surely I can't be the only one who's bugged by this constant repetition of text above and below the Facebook/Twitter buttons?

Then again, maybe I am?   :-\

nope, you are not alone. not a major point, but i hope cb can correct this small problem.

and then do something about the huge pix on the home page. it is almost impossible to read the text/title of the article because of the pix. just another helpful suggestion. :)

After giving the new layout a chance and using it for awhile, I must say I still think the old layout was better. This new design is just so busy, there's so much going on, and it's a lot more difficult to navigate. It was much easier to see what you wanted to see at a glance with the old design. Now you have to scroll through the entire page, and there's still less content I'm interested in than the previous layout offered.

I hope sbnation continues to take people's feedback and improves this design.

One of my problems with the new layout is I think that the FanPosts tend to get buried a bit compared to before.  Even when a post gets promoted, it is stuck down near the middle of the page, instead of at the top.  This means there's much less incentive to try to write thoughtful, interesting pieces that might get front page recognition (and views).

It looks great, I hate it but appreciate all the hard work done.   I will get used it.   I was used to the all style which was minimalist like our uniforms.   But I am getting better at getting around.   People hate change, I realize it was people making it better for all, thanks.

I like the overall design of the site...Glad that the forums remained old school. 

Only complaint is I wish there was an actual mobile site.  I don't have an iPhone or a Droid, rather a standard BlackBerry (non-touch).  The old site used to load extremely fast on it.  This new one doesn't.  I know before the format change, there was a mobile site, it had m. or mobile. in the web address.  Guess I will have to upgrade my phone at some point.  I wish I could enjoy the new site on my BlackBerry but it isn't very effective at loading it.

Oh, well, just my .02 cents.
