April Fools' Day
—the official holiday of the Internet!
So some of you may have noticed that our
changed designs yesterday—perhaps to something a little...
. For those of you who haven't picked it up yet, the change isn't permanent. :)
We really thought that the line about "original graphics, created by our art team" might be too much—but that didn't stop over
from sending us emails! So naturally we thought we'd re-print a few of the highlights—anonymously, of course.
Check out the emails after the break!
I like the old one a lot better. Simple design (which is not easy) = good design.
Please go back to your old design. It was simple and that is all we need.
Great, you look like the Armory. How UN-creative.....I know, I know, remember where your bread is buttered... But I still feel queasy about this. Have fun getting your free game time and gifts from Blizz. I'd say SELLOUT, but it's too obvious. :P
I just saw your new front-page and I must say I am a little disappointed. This new page looks just like World of Warcraft Armory. I don't know if this is a aprilsfool day joke, but I personally liked your old design. It was simple and great! If you really want to improve your user interface, my proposal is that you should continue with your old design, because I think it was alot better than the one you use right now.
A little originality would be nice rather than just blatently ripping off Blizzard...
It is also very confusing choosing which site to open now from my quick picks as your front page is almost identical to the armory, and my browser (Chrome) shows me all my most used pages as thumbs when I first open it, and before it was easy to open wowhead as it was distinctive.
"Oops, did I click Armory? No? Oh, wait... what? WTH DID THEY DO TO MY WOWHEAD?!?" I like the clean, basic black w/ the mascot/logo. This fancy shmancy looks-like-parchment crap is a waste of bandwidth and display real-estate. I wish they'd ditch it on the Armory, too, TBH. But I suppose the masses like the eye candy, huh?
No thanks, I'd like the old one please. As I know that this won't happen, at least give me an option (different alias?) of using the old layout.
The simple design really sold the site for me in the first place. wowdb.com has that sleek look but it never caught on for me because I felt too distracted. People come to wowhead for information, not for entertainment really.
ASK BLIZZARD THEY KNOW THIS ITS CALLED ARMORY....
I do not like the new look. Now I can't tell from the look if I am on the armory or wowhead without looking at the url, just one more extra thing to do in a day filled with too much to do.
I think the new website design looks great—except it looks way too much like the Armory. I have a feeling that this contradicts your claim of its having a "original design." Right now, I'm still trying to decipher whether or not this is your April Fools prank...Hell, I still even remember
last year's prank
, which I have to say was pretty damn funny; people overreacted for almost nothing.
are you aware of the fact that your new look is exactly the same as armory?
Ironically, the scariest thing about this little April Fools' prank wasn't the people who were offended—it was the people who were excited! Didn't you guys
our front page? :(
wow, this looks cool. it is the same look of wowarmory! i hope that you will change the look of all other pages, so that they can match the front page!
I'm an avid wowhead user, and, I'm honored to be able to share my thoughts about the new and improved site layout. First of all, I think it's great. It's neater, more compact, and overall better. Despite being a tad bit familiar *(
)*, I believed that it has been incorporated into the website very nicely by your talented graphic artists and web designers.
your new design looks awesome! Really love it!
Looks awesome. I did like the old simple look. but i like a change, and roll with it. :)
I like the way you made it look like the armory page. Hopefully bliz doesn't mind that. All in all good work, time to bug test and check the rest of the site.
Really like the new look of Wowhead.
And possibly my favorite:
GJ!, you should make it run like a dog too, to match the armory ;).
