Hi!

Today sees Emptyspiral take on a new look! It's not a huge departure from the previous style, but one I hope you'll like. Emptyspiral has been online now for nearly 6 years(!) and this is the most significant redesign we've have since the first day we opened our doors to the world.

Let me know what you think.

Known issues. There is a minor issue with the way large images affect the left hand margin. This is not a significant thing, and will only really affect people looking at the Wallpapers or the pictures thread. I hope it doesn't bother too greatly.

Thanks again for all your support over the years!

Really nice look Matt.
I saw on msn that you were working on this for quite some time and am amazed how well it turned out. :D

I just need to get used to the big white banner and the black forums under it. But I'm getting there. :P

Great job. Nicely done! ;) :D

:clap:

*Edit* I see you can still swich back to the old lay-out. Nice touch. I also gave the white theme a go to see how that would work with the white banner, but it seems the white theme (fiapple) needs some serious updating. :P I'll just stick to the new one then. :P *

Hehe. Fiapple was put on ES years ago because someone complained they couldn't read white on black. I never did anything with it.

Is subBlack the default?
The drawings of the band at the top are cute, I think I'll stivk with this instead of the white.

I'm not so sure of it tbh, that large chunk of white is too out of place, the rest me like tho, oh and why have you got hte main width at 100% then restricted the rest to 1000px, better off sticking with percentage, as I'm sure there'll be one person still on 800x600, oh and iphones and ipod touch's using safari it does look and balance fine.

Yes, the banner is a bit different. I wanted something that would stand out and match the style of the other official sites (hence Maki's characters from the 'Communities' section of lc.it)

I've checked in my iphone and it looks fine. :)

The header will take some getting used to. I'm so used to everything being black! :D But I do agree that it looks great, Matt! You've outdone yourself!

I particularly like the rounded edges on the side widgets and the main links (home, download, account, etc) being in that same LC font. That's a nice touch.

Well done, Matt!

And thank you for all you've done over these past six years!

It'll take some getting used to, but I can't knock it. :)
