OSX-E Redesign; A work in progress

author alang

As you can notice we have a new design for this site. The design made by a designer that have been working for us at other websites. Apart from the design, we are restructuring the site so you may get some link error.

If you see any error, please don’t report it as a bug yet because I’m still fixing lots of things. I will open an official bug thread at the forum once completed. For the time being, enjoy the new design and if you have any comments / suggestions, leave it here or at the forum

Fabulous work here!!!

I really like the new fresh look and slicker navigation. The only thing I find a bit distracting is the clutter of the banner advertising, but I appreciate the fact that they need to be there!

A HUGE amount of work that is profoundly appreciated

Many thanks!

without the ads, how can I fund this site. Plus, there are only 3 ads on one page.

I think it looks amazing. You’ve inspired me to re-design my portfolio.

Nice new look and slicker layout.
However, none of the downloads seem to be working, and I’ve tried several. The links seem to have all broken and only dish 404s at the moment. Which sucks, because I really need to reinstall Flyakite right now and managed to lose the installer somewhere on my 200 gig drive.

the download links will be up soon. You may also try downloading it from http://www.flyakiteosx.com

Love the design ,and the previews on the download page, but none of the download links work. =( Otherwise, I really like it.

I understand the neccessity of the ads, but the banner ad below the top frame is very distracting. Especially when you’re using the forums. Maybe that can go to the bottom of the page or somewhere less distracting. The other ads (on the side) are okay where they belong. Otherwise, the new design looks awesome. I really like the colour scheme, makes you feel kind of fresher when you visit the site. Great work!

Regarding the ads below the menu, that is a top spot where advertisers willing to advertise their site. If I move it elsewhere, they won’t be interested to advertise here. I don’t think it is distracting because the ads does not contain any extreme animated graphics.

Anyhow, thanks for your feedback

I agree, I don’t find it distracting at all.

I think the ad placement is fine. It actually blends into the site well, and isn’t too distracting in my opinion. :)

I will remove all the ads if I could get sponsors for this site. I will create an advertising page soon so any company / websites that interested can purchase the ads spot. I hope with more than 5000 visitors a day, this site could attract some sponsors.
