Well... I got tired of the old layout, really tired of it. Not to mention it had some problems with people running at low resolution, or older versions of Internet Explorer. Well this new layout was made to work at 800x600, and should look fine in all web browsers!

Oh, and if you guys find any problems with any of the pages, please feel free to lemme know and I'll fix them as soon as I can.

(the forums are still the old layout for the time being, it's a lot harder to change the layout for the forums.)

Stuff I have noticed, although some of these may be design features, please also note I am using 1280x800: On the main page the comic is off center, its about 100 or so pixels right of center, the title, however, is centered correctly. On the links page the banner for Parallel Dementia is missing, with no alt text, so it just appears as a tiny square, the link is still there though. Beyond that all the buttons seem to work on all the pages.

Ah yes Fusion's right on all accounts.

Also, as I stated elsewhere: "Then it might interest you to know that the "Forum" and "Intro" buttons don't appear in Internet Explorer and Maxthon (Firefox, yes). You didn't close the "a href" tags with a > for those two buttons."

But apart from that, I like the new look better. Very Happy

Looks 'hawt' :P

One more thing, since your in tweak-mode. on 1024x768 IE, the comic page's news text is bleeding over the left outline.

Keep up the good work! Redesigns always take a week to debug!

Hey, thanks J2.

I've been lurking since my review. It's always good to see a project that can still adapt and grow after 200+ strips.

O.o

A reviewer? So....on a scale of 1 to 5, 1 being the worst, how would you rate Roomies?

Points J2 to a previous news post from a few weeks back

And yeah, still tweaking out some bugs, stupid CSS likes to make things bleed over sometimes Sad

Remember, I did this one a month ago.

I've only given one '5' (I don't rank things, just review them), but if asked to grade, Roomies is an easy 4. You're already addressing my webdesign concerns on your own, so go Roomies!

I just wanna say that I want to kill Internet Explorer and Firefox right now for not being able to figure out how to display my page the same!

Hey Aarin, welcome

Layout looks great by the way. Running 1280x960 and it works fine for me in Firefox.
