Awesome kris! secret or is the plan aloud to be told?


Well the plan is not so well defined yet - but we have discussed for over a year to create much cooler "lick of the day":s. (perhaps with an instructor competition or similar..?)

Looks astounding. However I have one thing that I believe needs to be changed.

The font you're using for headings (the one for "New Guitar Lessons" "Freatured Content" "Latest Forum Posts") is very hard for me to read, even though it's larger than the regular text. My poor eye-sight will be rectified in a couple of weeks, but easier accessability for those with poor eye-sight it could be a good Idea to get another font.

Since the lick of the day is partly there to entice people to subscribe, it might be helpful in that regard if the licks were provided by students cool.gif

I do like it Kris looks fresh and modern !
Some question
- What is the knowledge base about?
- when will the new desgin be finished?

Personally I wouldn't change the the GMC lettering into capital letters. And what's with the GMC slogan Zero to Hero?
Thanks

"Knowledge base" is a new name suggestion for the wiki. We can't tell for surewhen the new design will be out - but if we don't encounter too many unexpected problems I hope we can get it this fall.

I am glad to see many people like the color new scheme (I personally love it - I felt strongly that the combination we have had lacks "liveliness" - which the new yellow/green color cures). Credit for this and the design in general goes to Mathias Petterson who works with Henrik.

Part of the idea with the design upgrade is to get some new ideas and perspectives - just as everyone should do with their guitar playing: Question your progress, strengths and your weaknesses. Also you need to change your habits and include fresh new ideas - otherwise you will get stuck in a rut and sound predictable and boring. We need to do the same with GMC.

Some of the things we will implement will be bad and others will be good - we usually won't really know until we try. However we can always fix things and improve - that's what we are doing right now!

Looks great and a smart move Kris, this certainly looks professional and definitely raises the design quality level. I have one suggestion only and that is to possibly experiment more with different fonts for the main GMC top banner.
Awesome work! smile.gif

Awesome new look, Kris ! What I find weird, though, is that under the heading "LATEST IN METAL GUITAR LESSONS" (pic. 4), there are loads of lessons on blues... biggrin.gif

Since there seems to be quite a lot of people who like the new colour scheme and quite a lot of people who don't. Maybe there could be a choice of colour schemes.

I love it! Personally, I like the yellow as well ^^

If there's one thing I'd like to keep though, it's the random lesson bar. Not nessicary on the front page, but somewhere on the lessons? A lot of the lessons I've found to treasure, I've found through that bar. Unless the "Recommended Lessons" on the right is the same thing, just with another name?

I think there should be some clarification in the sections of videos on the homepage, as it currently seems as if you have New Videos, Featured Videos and New Videos. It would seem that the news feed has disappeared somewhere as well.

That green colour doesn't tie in with the design very nicely.

The slogan under the GMC logo could be better.

The line-height on the community portal could be increased to make it easier on the eyes.

Waaaah... really cool!! I think one tiny thing might be that the (over)use of capital letters, as well as the yelow colours might be a bit screamy, you know what I mean? I think big improvement overall, looks very profesional, I especially like the lessons page!

Also, maybe rethink about the workshop tab, what does it do? Maybe it's better to put an info page there like " What is GMC?" To make things even more clear for new members!
