WhitsEnd.org Redesign

Post

What does everyone think of the official site redesign? Personally, I like the old site better.

I like the new site better, the old site hasn't been uptated for years. Also the new site is more mobile friendly, and in my opinion better designed then the old one.

I'm sure I'm just biased, but I prefer the old one. I think the new one is probably the more friendly and well-structured website, but I'll miss the old one regardless.

I think it's a great and long-overdue change. I think it will catch more eyes (and ears) of those new to the show. I didn't frequent WhitsEnd.org that much in recent years, except for mainly the podcast pages.

My favorite version is the character buttons one without the video characters on them.

I agree! Miss the old site since I basically group up with it at this point, but the things they added are probably worth the loss. The character descriptions, the episode lists, and the address change are good examples.
"Let me get this straight. I bet all those non-friends of yours try to embarrass you about your love for that stuff, right? So, you almost feel like you have to hide your treasures away and can only take them out in secret on rainy days when your mom goes to the store to get more liver and nobody is around to berate your sensitive spirit. Is that what you’re saying?" -Jay Smouse

I agree with both of you, the new site feels more...fresh...like it will draw in more people.

I think we lost some "Legacy" Elements that were needing updates but still, TheImaginationStation.com and some of the album links just don't work obviously they are try ti integrate with the club maybe but it's odd, some errors are fixed the funny thing is the club albums are on there, but hidden. ie: https://www.adventuresinodyssey.com/alb ... eason-six/ so you can see some details on the exclusive eps and the documentaries, but not by browsing...
