    What do we think? Cant say I’m a fan at the moment. I know change always takes a while to get used to, but I’m not seeing too many redeeming features at the moment.

    To me, its too bright, the top navigation bar changes colour for no good reason, the content isnt easy to scan read and the layout on long articles makes me think ‘wtf’.

    Anyone like it?

    Not a fan of the hard angled flavour that’s doing the rounds at the moment (a la Google, You Tube and now the Beeb).

    I like Youtube’s new design, not a fan of the Beeb’s though. I really can’t see it growing on me it’s a bit rubbish.

    Oh my dear, that’s awful.

    The colours make it look pretty cheap and lowrent. Reminds me a bit of the shit “custom” myspace pages that people used to have (which would end up crashing your browser due to the terrible coding)

    Noticed it had changed. Wasn’t a big fan of the last version but I use the BBC for facts not pizazz.

    ewww mostly @ colours, but also a bit jumbled up, and not so keen on headlines down the middle.

    Seems to be football, football, football, lastest football and football results, by default. Oh with a tiny cricket vid at the top. Unless you scroll down to the 2nd half.

    I blimmin’ hate football 👿 so that better change.

    edit: oh and major WTF @ the mouseover menu colour change at the top!

    I think we really have to focus on what’s important here.

    “Redesign” is spelt incorrectly in the thread title.

    Bollocks, sometimes by hands move quicker than my spelling can cope with 🙁

    There’s too much cricket on there for my liking. Apart from that, nowt much to worry about. It’s just gone from ‘red’ to ‘yellow.’

    huh? it’s 99% football. oh there’s still the cricket vid top right.

    Front page for me today:
    football, football and boxing as top 3 stories (fair enough about the top one)
    Headlines are: football, football, football, football, football, football, formula 1, football, England (football), rugby union.
    Plus of course the scores and results and fixtures, which are all football.
    Failing to see much cricket!

    Thought I’d got the football tab selected by mistake, but nope, it’s definitely “home”.

    I guess there’s no other sport happening or scheduled at the moment? No Rugby Union? No 6 nations? 😕

    oh well… i’m sure there’s other websites.

    I think it is the same design team. They certainly made the mess that is the BBC Homepage

    Looks alright. At least the Angelo Dundee tribute is the top story. Which is not football. (So you probably haven’t heard of him 😉 )

    Maybe needs more news headlines above the fold, although with the amount of video content they put out you can understand why they’d want to promote it.

    What do people think? Do you prefer to read a story that watch a vid when online?

    i think it’s okay, the yellow is a bit bright.

    I like that I can get the latest scores, results, league positions of every major league easily, I would like it to auto update as opposed to me pressing update.

    I’m already used to the main homepage redesign.

    I think the yellow video play icons on the little promo pics are really distracting, they make it hard ot focus on what the actual content is.

    Its horrible, and also why oh why are websites still being designed for the 4:3 format. I can understand it here, a small company like singletrack lagging behind a bit, but surely the BBC could go widescreen.
