I just need a little feedback, gents.

So I decided to try a new look for my front page but with some hesitation. That is, I was forced to use some tricks I'm not a fan of (layering, mainly) to fit everything together where an original design-attempt failed. It seems a go with Firefox and I.E., but it's a disaster for Opera and mobile browsers.

So the question to you: Do all the images show up, and do all the links work? If not, kindly report such errors here. I'd hate to have a site where no one can advance past the second page.

They work fine on Firefox and Safari for me. I'm sure they wouldn't work on my first-generation iPod Touch or my 3DS, as neither can handle very much.

Everything looks great for me! (I also use Firefox.) No issues or difficulties. I really like your new setup, simply magnificent. =]

What! WHERE!?

There's a cute Simon somewhere on the redesigned site and I wasn't told about it???

You've done me wrong, people, you've done me wrong.

I'm a little late to the party on this (these end-of-year trips usually last longer than the week I estimate), but the "1st floor" has a shoddy swap animation of Simon approaching the castle.

I want to do something like this for each "floor," but as you GIF-makers know, it's tough thing to pull off when the palette for an image exceeds 256 colors. The bottom floor is the only one that measures less than that number; any other floor will see an immediate downgrade in image quality when the animation swap occurs.

I see it now! And I will never be the same again.

To anyone still reading: I need some feedback as to my background change (as seen on, say, this page). Since my monitor is a bit on the darker side, everything appears clearly enough. Though, I've recently viewed it on people's laptops and found the background to be a bit bright when the field of vision isn't straight on.

Is the text--particularly white, green and blue--readable from your end?

The background is fine on my labtop. I even changed its brightness to the highest setting just to see if that made an impact, but it seemed fine until the machine powered down a few seconds later.

Plenty readable, though.

Am I the only who thinks the older layout was MUCH better? Now most pages appear in small fractions of the screen so that they are basically unreadable. For example the General Info., The Heroes etc. all appear in a small page in the bottom-left corner of the screen, like 30% of the screen's size, so any large image can't be displayed properly. Makes no sense to me.

Sorry for the late feedback, I've been wanting to let you know for months. Ha, what laziness can do.

I'm trying new layouts until I'm able to reach the desired design--the same current look but without the frames.

I just don't have the tools, currently, to pull it off.

In the interim, if things get too cramped, try the ol' "open link in new tab" right-click option for a better view of a given page.

Any staff members got word on the new server login? My private-message box would appreciate it.
