Saw that poll, If you did something like this I think it'd look pretty nice.

Hmm not bad. Ive been wanting a new design for a while too, not because the current is bad but I would just like to see a change. If anything I think a new design that pays homage to the old rather then completely redefining it would be good. It would be awesome if a new site design got launched with HL2 smile.gif

no-clip, do you mean keep everything the same, but change the banner at the top? I like the current interface as it is, but I'm not against change for the better.

I was thinking put one of those scrollboxes in the white part. I'll whip up an html version with some content for an example if you like.

That's nice, so you arent a blatant ass after all smile.gif

Well anyway what do all of you think of an open concept website (one that doesnt take the full screen) instead of this current one where all edges go to the full edges. (Compare c132 and hl2c websites if you dont know what i mean http://www.citizen-132.com/ http://www.hl2central.net/ )
Ya, rly.

Here's an interface I recently made for something else by the way:

It's useless now so I can show it off.

Could use some redesign in the buttons, too much info and text in one button. Pretty good other than that.
Ya, rly.

Knowing all things revolving around HL2, the new site skin would get delayed.

yeah you should die.

its cool, but why waste all that space on both sides?

there is so much room and most gamers run 1024x768 or higher. take advantage of that fact!

HL2C is a news site, its a community site. its not just some mods site. there are frequent updates, lots of forum posts and lots of other misc details that could be used to fill up all that space! if there is one think i hate its a website that just wastes blank space like that >: (
