Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Penny Arcade 7.0!

Most of you probably don't know me - I'm the new tech guy at PA. For the last little while, Erika and I have been toiling away on...

http://beta.penny-arcade.com

This is a soft launch; I'm posting it here first to slowly ramp up the load before Mike and Jerry announce it tomorrow. Please don't tweet about it or tell folks outside the forum until tomorrow. We're aware of a bunch of small issues and will be hammering away at them before we flip the big switch, but if you find anything, display issues, performance issues, content, whatever, please post it here!

    I thought the buttons on the top of the new forum seemed more like a site design than a forum design. Looking good!

    oh when you click on a tag in the archive with punctuation (i.e. "you're"), it loads a white page with the following error:
    The URI you submitted has disallowed characters.

    Hmm, I don't know what I think of this. Seems a little cluttered and it's a bit difficult to navigate to the comic.

    Besides that, it seems alright.

    Personally, I'd rather have the comic up above the newspost but other than that it's great!

    Looks cool but I don't like the background color of the news text, it's too bright. The old darker blue is much more pleasant to read.

    Also the buttons on the comic page are poorly laid out, why do Facebook and Twitter integration have the spot of honor right in the middle? They're distracting from the buttons that matter. The Back and Forward buttons in particular should be much more prominent.

    Looks slick and terrific! My one is crit is that the slideshow is annoying (and it goes too fast, interrupting my focus). When I go to PA, the first thing I'm looking for is the news post plus a link to the comic, so it's disorienting that something else is front and center.

    heh

    Server: everpony/2.718

    (the current main site returns Server: magic_ponies/2.718)

    (edit: I'm pretty sure the magic_ponies bit predates any of the current mlp stuff. maybe a django reference? dunno)

    The first thing that jumped out at me was it is very hard to locate any buttons/links to PAX upon the initial website.

    In my opinion the fewer social media icons the better.
