    At which point there's also an implied "we're not ready to announce exactly what yet, so please stop asking", I think

    How are things going with that Vault button? I really don't want to have 2 Hexus bookmarks on my already overcrowded bookmark bar.

    EDIT: Ignore me... I found it.

    Re: Features - Five ways to make the most of the new HEXUS site

    Only (really trivial) thing I noticed is that the hexus logo on the home page is smaller than on any of the other pages.

    I would also love a low bandwidth version of forums but hey ho

    We are never going to upgrade the forums or make any improvements.

    That looks pretty good actually.

    Ooh! and I'm using the inline commenting for the first time too! This is going to save a lot of extra tabs being left open by mistake

    Re: Features - Five ways to make the most of the new HEXUS site

    The quick comment feature is great, definitely the most useful upgrade for me! Search looks great too.

    One thing that is not so great is how crowded the front page is now! My eyes can't handle it all, I'm just not sure where one thing starts and another ends. It's fine once you scroll down though

    Is http://hexus.net/tech a better view for you?

    Currently one of the best re-vamped sites, I like it, I would agree with Zhaoman the front is abit over crowded, need to make it abit simpler.

    Yup that looks a lot better! I much prefer just having three big 'featured' things to look at and then the rest of the content to browse on my own.

    I think the big ad on the right might be a bit offputting because it doesn't line up with the right hand column and that makes the page look more hectic than it really is. Right now it looks like 'My Hexus', the smaller ad (Corsair) and the bigger ad (Asus/Sapphire) is forming some sort of a wierd triangle on the right hand side; and you only realise its a column of features when you begin to scroll down. If it was lined up I think the page would be easier to understand.

    (disclaimer: I have no experience with web design so I could just be spouting utter nonsense, just wanted to help by giving my first impressions )
