This looks to me like Jason's work. Am I right? Looks good. I especially like the ampersand in the logo.

I love it. Bright. Simple. Easy on the eyes.

A bit like the top of your avatar's head.

This is very appealing. As if the lights in the bar have just been turned down for the evening.

Actually, it's the IMAGE team's work. And thanks!

Great work on the new look and logo. Is it merely aesthetic or a symbolic that the T are of a slightly larger font?

I really like the new site design, and the colors. Not that there was anything wrong with the old colors, but the warm feel of the darkish red/burgundy is a nice change.

Hmmm. Doing a search just now, there was no longer an option to search titles. Not a big deal, but makes it a touch more clunky.

Aesthetic.

(OK, well maybe it's because I've always idolized Mr. T.)

Making the T taller allows for tighter kerning. Since the T's horizontal bar floats above the other caps, you can bring those caps in a little toward the T's stem without touching the bar and making a mess.

I see, sir, that you are a true connoisseur of typography. A man after my own heart!

Yes if it's possible could we have that back please. I use it all the time.

(how else can we avoid "Ahems")

PS In case it wasn't clear my earlier response of "oooooooh" meant - The new site design looks great.

I've noticed relatively minor design quirk. In the footer of the site, the banner ad appears beside the bar that displays the RSS icon and the current date and time, which causes a lot of horizontal scrolling. I've attached a screenshot.
Attached File  Picture_1.png   75.28KB   13 downloads
This only seems to be happening in Safari on OS X. My guess is that an extra line break tag needs to be placed after the "navstrip" div (there's already one right before it).

The link to the Top 100 Films is broken. I don't know what that means?

Fixed.

And Opus -- how's that wrapping problem now?

Darrell:

When you click on "Search" you'll see a "More Search Options" option -- click on that and you'll find what you need.

Love the new design. I also like the link back to IMAGE Home.

By the way - these were my high school colors - we were the SCOTS!
