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!

    I don't remember the last time I used the official search instead of pipefour is my main problem with the official search page.

    Pretty much.

    So the bad news is, the official search is...bad. The good news is, it doesn't really matter.

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

    We were told during the last redesign that this will never happen. M&J don't want the comic on the main page.

    Change is the only constant, man.

    Got any change?

    A couple quick hits that I found when reviewing the site just now, @Kethenn

    1) Archive gets funny with the pagination buttons in some cases, like here (why is there a [...] between 1 and 2?)

    2) The stylesheet is breaking <ul> tags in newsposts, see: http://beta.penny-arcade.com/2002/2/22/ compared to http://www.penny-arcade.com/2002/2/22/

    3) Email Address oddity (e.g. kkuan+batjew@...) on old Batjew/Safety Monkey posts - is this intentional? See: http://beta.penny-arcade.com/2002/02/22/gone-daddy-gonethe-love-is-gone

    4) Thomas Kemper's face gets cutoff pretty much everywhere except the newspost screen, and sometimes even there.

    5) Something funny on this page: http://beta.penny-arcade.com/comic/2009/08/31 - The current site doesn't show that Amalgamations comic, and lands on a different date when you are paging through the prev/next buttons.

    6) Are you using a different parser to filter HTML in the newsposts? This one is broke, and isn't broke on the old site.

    7) Duplicate newspost here: http://beta.penny-arcade.com/2005/08/23 - This also happens on the current site.

    8) Severely broken HTML here: http://beta.penny-arcade.com/2005/08/19

    9) Permalinks are looking at last segment without considering earlier segments - take for instance the following links:
    http://beta.penny-arcade.com/2005/08/10/pax6
    http://beta.penny-arcade.com/2005/08/10/pax7
    http://beta.penny-arcade.com/2005/08/10/pax8
    http://beta.penny-arcade.com/2005/08/10/pax9

    You can basically create a link with any date of your choosing and as long as the last segment is a valid permalink identifier, the link will work. If there isn't an easy fix for this, you might want to consider at least adding a link rel="canonical" tag to make sure the search engines don't get confused.

    ----

    I agree about the PAX button being hard to find and the "Go to associated comic" button being not prominent enough (likewise with the "go to associated newspost" button on the comic page.

    Good stuff: The colors are nice! Increased line-height is a big win! Rotating banner is cool and well placed, though it detracts the eye from the top banner quite a bit - I wouldn't be surprised if you see your top-banner clickthroughs decline.

    Y'know, including a "by date" function in the archives would be a good idea.

    I agree with this.

    I really like the heroFeature header on the main page and wish that I had the know-how to steal it implement something similar for my own company's website.
