Looks like you had to revert it today too :(

While browsing I got the new top menu and then some error. Did not pay attention to it and hit refresh. That gave me a "stream error" so I waited for 5 minutes and tried again and I see the old interface back...

Please give us 24 hours... there's a bunch of small tweaks that need to be done.

I like the new look! Not sure about the blank horizontal gray bar though.

Looks good so far.  I will like it.

Maybe I missed it, but why the change?

Oof, I like the new logo but the page graphics & layout with black & red blocks are pretty strident.

If you wanted to make it look like some kinda supa sekret undaground rumor conspiracy site, you succeeded :-).

Hah! Well perhaps that's a valid intention. The overall immediate effect certainly is a lot "harder"...

Design is such a subtly powerful thing. But not to worry, CR is all about the content anyway.
We'll soon forget that it ever looked any different.

First post here but long-time lurker.

One thing that has always annoyed me is the highlighted forum posts on the right hand side of the Home page. If you click on one, I find it annoying that it doesn't take you to the first post, but to some random place down the thread, often the bottom post. Can it not be fixed that it opens at the top of the thread?

On the other hand, there may be a good reason for this that I can't figure out...

Otherwise, the new look is great - well done!

Pete

CR now looks like Windows 8. I don´t like the new look.

any chance of the rumours being higher up?  Or at least the trending discussions being at the top of the page?

cheers  :)

Ahh.. the first complaint didn't take long.

The switchover will be buggy for 12-24 hours as things get sorted. These things rarely go smoothly.

In the original version of this site, a list of products appeared on the right side of the screen and one could click on the link and view all of the rumors associated with the product. That cross-reference tool was very helpful. Nikon Rumors still has theirs and Sony Rumors lists related rumors at the bottom of every post.
