    Hey Gerbz,

    New layout is looking great. It’s slick and fresh. A nice change from the black every ‘underground’/house site uses.
    Now all you need is a banner text/font style to match (the logo is good btw, in tune with the new colour sceme).

    Props from Proph

    Thanks for the input. Yeah, I agree, we still have to add some design changes. Glad you like it.

    Here are some points:

    -alignment: the top banner and social network buttons could be centred above the blog’s main column (they’re now to the left…using firefox that is)

    -the search button doesn’t follow the site’s font/style and is taller than the search field it’s next to.

    -Here’s a remake of the logo I just made while being bored. Just one of many possibilities of course. Feel free to use it if you want (I just made it as an example of what I meant in my previous comment though…): http://yfrog.com/naeoprophsremakep

    just some pointers by a Dutch fan :)

    Thanks for the help Propheticus! We appreciate the feedback. The social network buttons are actually on the top right for us (sarafi, firefox & ie), so we’ll work on getting that fixed across all platforms.

    We’ll also work on fixing up the entire sidebar in the meantime – lot of work to do there!

    Also, thanks for that logo, you just opened up a lot of options for us…

    I see that you used padding to align the top elements, this fixes the position without taking into account the screen width. The main column however, is aligned to center whatever the width is. (see the effect by playing with your browser’s window size)

    You could put both the banner’s div and that button bar’s div inside a topbar div with the same width as the main column. Within this align the buttons to the right (margin-right: 0px;) and banner to the left (margin-left: 0px;). The CSS property of this ‘topbar’ could then be set to ‘margin: auto;’ to center it, regardless the page-width.

    Long story short: make them both align fixed or relative to the page-width, don’t use two different alignment techniques.

    I’ll shut up now :P Hopefully I come across as constructive instead of just another smartypants :)
