    So wait... is this $30 for 6 months? That's... not bad.

    So, two things:

    1. AWESOME Site update, looks so much better, and is just all around excellent.

    2. $30 for 6 months? And a pin?! Done and done.

    I'm assuming it might take a couple of minutes, but hopefully the forum badge shows up soon. I'd like to see how it looks.

    Considering the pin, 5% off all merch, $10 coupon, I'm very happy to spend $30 every 6 months on this.

    I hope they have perks at PAX... and I hope they send out the pins soon

    Lord, that top banner.

    Also can I still read the tycho/gabe posts for that day on one page? I kinda liked not having to do anything except open the main url.

    But yeah, signing up when I can.

    You mean the news posts? There's still two of them on the main page, and the rest are lined up under in case you want to read them.

    Hmm...did it ask anyone else an address? I'm kind've worried because usually that is done through PayPal and I have to manually change mine to the correct address....but it didn't ask this time.

    Anyone else run into that?

    Nope, nothing. They could always do a profile update later, can't say for sure though.

    I went through Paypal also, but my address is usually correct there. Hopefully if you have any problems they sort it out!

    There's still some questions I have also; How do we get the $10 off gift card, how do we apply the 5% discount, and some other stuff that will hopefully be addressed soon.

    Yes but I have to open both individually to read them in full, I can't just scroll down the page (1st world problems I know). Actually it might help to see new posts, assuming it's newest at the top now.

    Also; so it is going to be a yearly pin. Interesting.

    I like the new site layout. Quite a bit, actually. Which surprises me because I'm usually the most vocal whenever my favorite sites get changed.

    That said, I'm not fond of the fact that I have to click to a new page to read the entire blog post. I honestly enjoy reading the blog more than I do the comic, so I liked the way it used to be, all the day's entries just right there for you to scroll through.

    Ah, I get what you mean, yeah.

    And yep, seems like every year that you contribute you get a pin. Wonder if its going to just be a "Year One", "Year Two" sort of deal or what.

    Looking forward to the new pin. It's almost a no brainer to join Club PA if you're a Pin Pal, the discount and pin are worth the $30 alone.

    The problem that I found with this sometimes is when they used an old post and 'updated' it. For example, when they were streaming, mine wouldn't bring it to the correct spot, and so I wouldn't know that they were streaming that day.
    Also; so it is going to be a yearly pin. Interesting.

    Yearly in the sense that 2014/2015/2016, which will definitely be a better option then having it as a 'year 1' 'year 2' for how long people have been subscribed to it. It will make it a bit easier for people to get the pins. Also...it will give some of us a chance to get a second pin as trade fodder come August. ;)

    Obviously next year's pin will be a Tycho shirt.

    Do you think they'll send a second pin to users who already received one for that year? Interesting..

  • ClixClix This guy I know Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    I presume that the new design is intended to be more tablet friendly. I like the layout, but not overly fond of everything being abbreviated.

    Yes. The $30 perks I'm assuming will apply each time you sign up. Since it wouldn't be fair to 6 months from now say 'Nope! You get the $10 tier but are paying $30 for it". Since it is a 6 month membership, I see it as two separate transactions, and as such, you would receive two separate pins/$10 shop comp.

  • Konig WolfKonig Wolf Pins Pins Pins Redmond, WARegistered User regular
    The new layout has a Pinny Arcade category when you go to select the shop drop down and a Pinny Arcade link at the top. There's also a link to the Pinny Arcade Twitter account. Hopefully this will lead to more people getting into Pinny Arcade so we have more people to interact and trade with.

    Has anybody tried using their 5% discount yet? It doesn't apply for items in my cart.

    I wonder if they're going to send out an email to already subscribed users to pay again to keep their subscription? This way they keep track of who already had it coming into Year Two vs. who's just coming in?

    **UPDATE**

    For those of you getting the 30+ membership, we will follow up to get your shipping address for the pin.

    Doesn't seem like it works yet. It just released though, so I'd imagine it takes some time to iron out the details.

    $30 for pin AND perks? Done. I tried using the discount, too; not working. Slowly gathering materials as trade fodder for PAX....

    If you click on "news" that gets you a single scrolling page of all the current news posts.

    What? You mean to say that not every single thing is ready to go at the moment of relaunch? Unacceptable. I want my money back, right now! (joking)

    In all seriousness though, it will probably take a little time to get everything functional. I'm just eager to save $1.50 on each new pin set.

    Hey guys, click on the "More" button near the bottom of the page, just below the standard Twitter follow buttons. It drops down to display Twitter information for the rest of the PA staff and... well... looks like we've got a new Staff pin in the future after all?

    Let me just get a beep boop on your PAX badge real quick!

    If you scroll down from the main page and under FOLLOW PENNY ARCADE click "MORE" notice that each of the Twitter account links are Pinny Arcade Pin designs, and there is one for Kenneth (http://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/185114/about-the-penny-arcade-job-posting/p1), I imagine this was in part because Ben leaving and the layout would look off with 11 images/links, but anyone know if this design has always existed or is new?

    Hahaha vid you beat me XD

    I saw this too and wondered the same thing! I don't recall ever seeing something for Kenneth but that would make for a super rare pin especially if he is still on his way out.

    Interesting... I wonder if it'll just "replace" the Ben Kuchera pin, or just be 13/12 or something.

    I better get a Ben pin at East D: (along with everyone else ofc)

  • rentfnrentfn Registered User regular
    The discount will be nice to buy a couple more core sets so I have stuff to trade to get staff pins. Wonder if we will get the discounts before pax east,.

  • AyefkayAyefkay Queensland, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    AAAAAAAH! I leave the house for 1 hour and the site comes up!

    Home now, subscribed as soon as i saw it. $30 is an AMAZING deal imo. Even without the pin, if you're like me, and check the site at least once a day, there are some great benefits that make it more than worth it.

    Wow, the new site looks great, works fairly well on my phone, Club PA has heaps off stuff on offer and at reasonable prices AND the pin looks amazing.

    Of course, I signed up. A lot of us are gound floor pin pals and now ground flor Club PA members too.

    It's a great time to be a PA fan :)

    As for new site design, im not sure yet. I kind of liked the 'bare bones' aproach to the now old site. Everything i wanted was 1 click away, and news posts and comics were separated by day, which i found to be very useful.
