And I would like to know your opinions on the change.

This is how it used to look like:



(Yes, it was pretty messed up. I can't believe that we stuck with that one for so long -although changes were made in between designs, but none of them was that remarkable... with the sole exception of this animated header: http://s26.postimg.org/3sfc9tb6h/Nuevo_GF.gif -).

You can navigate it thru Web Archive if you are really curious:

https://web.archive.org/web/20141024175246/http://icedragonnet.blogspot.com.ar/

And here's the new one:



It is incredibly generic and yet, somehow, a lot more inviting. We have come a long way in this seven months of IDN (including this painful episode).

Obviously, I'm not trying to make any kind of SPAM (and it will be fine if you want to remove the link) but for the sake of comparison, here's the navigable link of the new version: http://icedragonnet.blogspot.com.ar/

Lately, I have regained my desire to go on with the site, and my STAFF has responded extraordinarily well to this (for which I'm entirely grateful)... sometimes there's so much new material to validate that it takes up all my free time. I wouldn't like it any other way.

And that is in large part due to this site and its wonderful members, you guys have been there when I needed help -see link above, in the painful thing stuff- and had always responded well to my bizarre reviews and points of view about old junk. You guys rock!

I like both. You are right, IceDragon the new design looks more inviting.

Oh yeah- I can deal with either one, of course. The main thing to me is if a site has good information that is worthwhile. (Which I'm sure your site would have, of course!) Smile
But the new design definitely looks more inviting. Probably because Gadget is at the forefront, beckoning me to come explore the site. Cool
(I LOVE Chip 'N' Dale Rescue Rangers).
Nice job.

Here's the new banner... it's special for me because I had to draw pretty much everything on it (videogame characters being the exception).



What do you guys think of it?

After lots of internal discussions, we have -collectively- decided that it was best to make a message board to help with user submissions and the like. If any of you feels like joining (and I'd absolutely love that) here's the URL: http://s15.zetaboards.com/IceDragonNET/index/ Smile

It took forever, but I made a banner for the forums as well...



What do you guys think of it?

This one is still in the works, though.

Quite a variety of characters there. I can't name them all, but I will say I particularly appreciate the inclusion of Gadget and Bert Raccoon! Very Happy Cool

Those are my favorites as well Smile

I'm gonna have to reduce the number of characters on it, though.

Bert and Gadget are there- I am happy. Smile Cool
(And very impressive that you drew most all those characters- very cool!)
(And I also appreciate Furball's inclusion from "Tiny Toon Adventures"- with his video game appearance from the first NES video game to feature the cartoon series. I loved playing that game as a kid. Very Happy

Thanks, mate Smile

I have an art thread on another forum where you can see those drawings on full scale, if you are interested on seeing them Smile
