If you're reading this blog - odds are you're viewing the "beta" version of the new AbsolutePunk.net layout. We've changed some things up while trying to keep the structure of the website you have come to know and love. Our goal was to create a website that is easy to use - yet extremely functional. Moreover, to create an environment that is uniform throughout the entire website regardless of which internal page you are viewing.
So, to start let's talk about a few of the changes on the website - and then I'll address how you can help make the page even better. If you've been following my blog you'll see a bunch of the changes and new functions of the website as well as my explanation for them (if you're curious about why something looks or acts or works the way it does -- odds are I have talked about it in the past 6 months in one of those entries).
First, I want to point out that yes change is weird ... but I am confident that after spending some time with the changes you will realize why we made them and see that it makes the website better. This is the future of AP.net and the framework from which we will be using for a long time.
The biggest change is the font. We have increased the majority of the font sizes around the website. We did this to make things easier to read for all users and provide a better experience. I thought it made sense to point this out so there's not a million questions about it.
BUGS / PROBLEMS / ISSUES:
Please realize that right now the website in the "new" version is still a beta version of the website. It is not completely ready for mass use -- that's why it's sort of hidden on how to get to it. So, if you find something that is not working correctly - please let us know. The best way to do this is to leave a comment to to this blog post (click add comment) -- and to include the following information:
- A description of the bug/problem/issue (and link if you have one).
- A description on how you achieved the problem.
- Any other information we may need to fix or reproduce the problem.
We're looking for anything that may look "off" may not work correctly or may not fit into the same uniform design as another part of the website. Maybe something that you think should do one thing and it doesn't work or it does something else instead.
If you want to switch back to the older version of AP.net while we are still in beta mode -- you can edit your options and select "Default." Hope you enjoy what you see ... it took a lot of time and I firmly believe this to be the future of AP.net as we continue to bring you the best possible online experience and give you the tools to talk about your favorite bands as well as engage with our top quality content.
