Well, I got to messing around with the homepage design this morning and challenged Red LAMP with passing some quick sorts to me so that we could do one of our famous afternoon rush jobs and get it from idea to live in just under 6 hours.

Mostly this should help all of us ComicVine addicts see what's happening new on the site (just click sort by recent edits). It'll save your sort preference btw, so next time you bring up the site all the recent edits will be there again.

You can also sort by largest pages, which is neat cuz there are a lot of great pages I had no idea people had put so much time into. Anyways, as usual, let us know what you think.

It's confusing. Creators are listed under teams. I see the thing that says creators at the top, but it wouldn't help someone who just found the site and didn't know who they are. The same problem occurs in all the other boxes.

The labels are in the wrong place and the sections aren't all separated. I like the recent edits and largest pages, they just need to be fixed a little.

Can someone take a screenshot for me? I don't see a label issue? And I don't see creators listed next to teams?

What browser are you guys on?

Yeah, since you guys are here a lot it may have just been some older stylesheets. Doing a hard refresh should fix it.

What do you think now that's displaying correctly. Be totally honest, we can't improve if you just kiss our asses. Haha.

I like it but I think it could use a background or something, it's very white. That's just me though.

I don't like that the top the page is black and the rest is white. I think it would look better as one color.

Also, the black part is just big and empty. Maybe make it smaller (if you don't get rid of it).

And, I don't know how possible this is, but how about random characters instead of the most popular? You know, so people can learn about the lesser-known guys.

I like it! It always sorta bugged me that the main page didn't look anything like the rest of the site. Very nice change!

I don't if it's just me, but when I scroll down, there seems to be too much white space, as in it's too wide. And maybe post a top 10 rather than top 12 in each category. Too much charts can perhaps become confusing for a newbie.

Overall, I like the new look, awesome job.
