I know Ryan and crew have worked VERY HARD to make this the best possible website they can, with lots of news and a facelift every few months to keep things fresh. I, personally, like this site's format the way it is now. The beta looks nice, but it very busy with all the pictures and such. This site is dark, but easy to read. The beta is bright with things everywhere. Ryan, you'll do what you want to (and who could blame you? you own this wonderful place!), but I vote to leave it as is.

This is not Ryan's site. This is Frank's site. Ryan justs posts here.

I like the new style of the site. It makes it look like the bigger wrestling sites on the net. But I wish the white background were colored, maybe a blue.

Well firstly, this isn't Ryan Clark's site, a guy called Frank created and runs it.

Secondly, nothing's changed with me. Everything is just the same as it was before lol!

Yeah I have no idea what they're talking about either, Tommy. Lol, it's the same as it ever was...where did you find a beta at?

Edit: Aha, nevermind. I found it on the front page, although it doesn't support the forums yet...and it looks too much like WZR.

Why do they always choose white, why not something more unique? Well...I hope this new design is optional.

the beta is on the main newsboard it is in bold at the top of the list but not in the double box at the top ..it links to the new site

Got it now, and I don't like it. The design is far too generic IMO, and looks a lot like WZR. I too hope it's only optional.

does look good but not a fan of the white background, looks too much like EWN, maybe a different, unique colour maybe be better??

I checked it out earlier today and i have to say, i like the current one a lot more, is there any chance once it goes through, we can keep this feature and have the option to chose the other one if wanted?

I love this current one due to the simplicity of it.

I understand all of your concerns about switching over, background color etc. I think the important thing right now is to provide a better overall experience for the readers. I think we're making the necessary steps to become a more dynamic website. The older backbone and script is too outdated to catch up with Web 2.0 and we're trying very hard to make everyone happy. Most of the things that you guys have suggested can be fixed easily. The forum will not change much at all. We can possibly make a light/dark skinned version of the forum, that will come. I appreciate your feed back and comments.

We're working on getting the site to run faster and hopefully after this week, we'll have a much more reliable and friendly site.

Thanks for hanging in here.

Regarding the bolded, that's a good point. I've actually been having problems from time to time with Webkit 2.0 when on this site. So anything to ratify that will be appreciated.

I do like the Top Stories slider up top. A lot of main sites have that, so it's about time that EWN upgrades to it. It's not like I'd use it, but at least we're catching up to some of the modern day features.

The logo seems really generic though, looks like something you could easily create on a free website. The logo we have now looks so much more fitting for the site, and it actually looks unique.

I may actually like the forums part though, but I'd have to see it. There's probably a higher chance that I don't like it, but whatever happens, I'm sure we'll eventually get used to it.

I turned it off mainly because of the white background. Besides that it did look alot more professional. It will just take some getting used to because we are so used to the simple look. Just have to wait and see how the forums look.

Also, been here for quite a minute and that's the first time I have seen Frank post. It's like seeing one of those reclusive celebrities or something.

I think instead of sounding ungrateful, we should thank Frank for even having the site up. It costs a lot of money to run a site and traffic is their cash flow. I know he's thankful for us but, you know he wants more traffic. He likes money, who doesn't? And with the main structure of the site having a bunch of problems, why not change up? It's been a long time coming for me. I've been visiting the site since around 2003 when it was just a site. It looked almost identical to the site now lol. Either way, thanks to Frank for wanting us to have a better experience and also, thanks for the change up!

Now, use me as a writer for your site! Please? ;)

It'll take some time to get used to (as well as posting!) but it's way more up to date than the old design. Thanks for your continued support of the website. Whether you love us or hate us.... you continue to support the site. Can't thank you guys enough.

Glad to be a part of the forums. Shoot me an email if there is anything I can do for ya'. I'm sure the same goes for Frank.

Vince McMahon thought a WWE network was a necessity dating back to 2005.

The impetus of the idea came when the Raw contract expired with Spike and he
put it out there thinking he was going to make far more in rights fees by bidding
all the major cable systems against each other. But once Spike dropped out
early and then announced they were canceling the show, TBS and TNT and
everyone else but USA and WGN weren’t interested. WGN, because of low
visibility and a lack of national clearance would have been a disaster. So they
went to USA with a worse financial deal than they had on Spike to begin with
because they had no leverage at all to negotiate a new deal.
At that point, McMahon realized that without television, pro wrestling at this
level is dead. So he needed a safety valve in place, as he told people he was
close to at the time that they can’t ever risk a time when they aren’t on
American television.

All I know is SG banned Ryan Clark. ;)

We can never blame SG for anything ever again after that.

Lol, was that actually Ryan Clark? I didn't expect that to be really him at all...Let me guess, Vince McMahon is actually Vinnie Mac himself? :)

And as for the new forum, I don't know. Frank said there'd be an option to switch back and fourth, but I haven't seen anything like that show up.

in all honesty, I didn't think that was Clark, I was mostly just fucking with him, but now that I know it is the real Ryan Clark, I feel so special.

and btw, if we redid the slammy awards, I guarantee Bodom banning Ryan Clark would be #1 without a doubt

Nope, it's always Bodom.


Well...that guy is banned. This happened once before and Ryan made it clear that he himself wouldn't join any forums.

Had a nice laugh though.

See, it was Bodom.

And even if it says SG made that post, Bodom probably hacked his account and made the post for him. ;)

If I could hack SG's account, I would do a lot more than ban Clark.

Sully
01-04-2012, 03:15 AM
I'll be honest, there are A LOT of things that aren't too great with it. The posts for one, looks like they're all quotes. I already experienced major problems with images. It looks...really bland. I mean don't get me wrong, I appreciate the effort and time that was put into changing this, but I just personally don't like it...

Oh, I see there is an auto save feature though...that could come in handing.

Other than this thread being full of WIN, I don't mind the change (FINALLY!). the only thing that bothers me is the posts being in italics.

There are a lot of parts I like, but there a lot of parts I don't like.

It seems smoother all around though, and some bugs I've been experiencing are fixed.

The colors seem to be working fantastically.

I wish we had all these good changes, but with the old theme, and without the weird posts.

Down in the who's online box, why are the some people who's names come up in black, and some in blue? They're not in order or anything, so it's not like it's alternating. My name is always in black, and the mods names are all in black. It's not by post count either, because The Brown One has 7,000+ posts and his name is in blue. But SG or Kash come up in black.

From what I can see, if you look at someone's profile that changes it from blue to black!

Well to my knowledge all of this was added just the other day. I am sure that they will repair/add stuff within the next few days. I actually enjoy the new site. It is more spacious, and it looks more professional and cleaner. Even the profiles look slightly better. The site has dumped its old dark feel. I think this new site compliments the new year. Everyone is wanting fresh starts, and this was a brilliant way to handle all of it. No complaints from me!
