It's a whole new layout

While it is visualy more dynamic, the graphics are very busy. I really just come here for the information and it looks like it will take a tad more effort to find it. I am not trying to sound over critical or anything. Like all things new or involved in change, it requires a little getting used to.

Just found something I love though! Outstanding idea to view recent comments and see how many replies they have. Great job!

My thoughts exactly.  While it's robust and asthetically appealing, it's so busy I can't tell which are articles and which are ads.

Agree.  This site looks aweful on my tablet!

OOOOOOHHHHHHHHHH!

Shiny!

Miss easy navigation to my comments and very busy, but nice graphically.  Noticed that content runs off the page in some areas on my iPad.  My guess that tweaks for mobile will be needed/is in the works anyway.  Any plans for drag/drop video/photos/gifs from our computers?

Go Bucks!

Go Buckeyes!

I was thinking a little bit along the same lines but the more I look around the easier it gets.  Things are in the same spots just a little fancier looking.  Overall I'm liking it.

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

I liked the old layout more but I'll give this site a few more weeks to get used to it. It feels cluttered to me though.

I definitely liked the old layout better, but I always feel this way when a site I frequent has a new change in it's look. I'm sure I'll get used to this, but the other site just seemed a bit easier to navigate.

The internet is much like recruiting. Gotta make your "facilities" nicer and nicer to compete. I welcome the change and look forward to more Buckeye football talk.

For the most part it seems like 90% of the content is in the same spot (buckshots on the right with the forum and blog topics etc.), so I don't see how it's hard to navigate. I'm impressed with how responsive the site still is even with all the bells and whistles.

It certainly is easier to read withthe larger fontssize, do not need my glasses to read it now. I would like to see a little more color in the overall page layout, all grey, all day?

Overall though it is a much more current format, looks very professional.

Has anyone else lost posts? I'm missing a few from the MM bruhaha thread. It looks like the last day's worth of posts in the thread are missing. Not complaining!!!! Just wondering if anyone else is seeing that also...

HS

Yeah I feel like I'm missing some posts too. Honestly I don't care but I noticed it as well.

I think thats because of the save point and transfer from the server to the new site.  Would imagine it to update on future saves.

Go Buckeyes!

I agree with the larger font size. 

I'm not saying,  I'm just saying.

Looks like Windows 8...  Even people at Microsoft are calling Windows 8 the new Vista.  I am sure allot of work went into this but it seems awfully busy for as much quality news content and writing you guys produce.

Sweet new icon when saved to iPhone. Fits beautifully with my jailbreak. No more hiding 11W on last page!

HS

Yeah I forgot the icon on my phone looks good as well.

Sweet, it's much easier for me to read.  And it's great on my samsung phone.  Haven't checked it on the kindle yet, but I'm sure it's awesome there as well.  KUDOS to the designers and the testers.

<begin grumpy old man rant>  Just because everyone else is doing it doesn't mean you have to as well.  

I work on web & mobile, and user experience trumps flashy in my book.  As others said, though, change is always tough at first, so I'll also give it some time before making a final verdict, but seems harder, not easier, for me to use at this point.

Is it me, or is anyone else seeing a lot of sarcasm (font)?

Yes.  Starting with the post by BedheadJC.  Noticed the same thing in the Bucksfan Changing Icon thread.

Great site, but has some flaws I have noticed so far.

 

There is nothing more remarkable as learning to think better.

Just think in 20 years they will have a throw back for 11W and the site they pull out will look like it did yesterday.

Navigation on my iPhone seems to be slow and jumpy.  Is it possible to always view the site in the desktop layout?

too much scrolling and searching

As long as we're all on board with Michigan sucking that's really all this was posted for.

I was wondering for the staff if anyone would know, have site views been down? It seems a little less active.

HS

This board seems to be dead since the switch. I loved 11w because of how easy it was to use and the GREAT writers and staff on this site. Only 1 of those things remain intact. 11warriors is still the best Ohio State site on the internet, bar none. Hineygate is a troll fest, Bucknuts is trying to be TMZ and I'm not sure if anyone actually reads the O-zone. I'm not sure what I'm going to do. The layout still hasn't settled with me. It looks like I'm not the only one judging by the activity on this site.

I was just in the football forum and some of the comments were shaking back and forth. Anyone know why this was happening?

The obnoxious placement of some of these ads is hard to deal with. The first thing I see on the home screen is a crappy text ad for an MBA at Michigan State.
