It's like anything else. I am sure you will hear all kinds of thoughts with the change, but let me just say that once this gets in place and all your hard work and ideas come to light, everyone will enjoy it.
I just uploaded my first portfolio image. I have been trying to figure that out before and now I am in.
I spent some time trying to figure things out and basically while you are still tweaking it, it's hard to give a critique but I can see where it will be wonderful. I do like the design. I think it will be easily navigatable and participants will enjoy the new look, design and updated features. I like simple and I feel you have designed it simple with much more options to consider that everyone will just need to be patient. We just need some time and I encourage everyone to spend some time simply getting used to the new look. I think everyone will find it much better.
I didn't get any work done before while visiting GG so now G1 is here with the arcade games, I can see my friends and colleagues wanting to beat me in a game of Space Invaders before the night ends....so much for my resolution of getting my cd's out in a timely manner again!
RG, I know you are busting your butt on this and I just wanted to say it goes appreciated.
