New PbNation Layout

First let me start by thanking you for supporting PbNation. We appreciate your contribution to the paintball community and we ware proud to unveil the new PbNation.com layout.

We've been listening as people have been making site suggestions.
You guys wanted less ads.
You wanted more screen real estate space so you could see more text per page.
You want to see new things on the site without having to go to Updates.

However, you still want the same basic feel you have come to expect out of PbNation. We hope we've accomplished that with this new revision. It's not a major departure from the old layout, but we think it's pretty cool.

What exactly has changed?
  • For starters, there's one less ad on the page. The skyscraper ad that was on the far right is gone.
  • The rectangle banner (previously located in the upper right corner) was made slightly larger and moved to the opposite side of the page.
  • Since we have more space horizontally, there is now a button for the FAQ on the navigation bar.
  • We've introduced a new PbNation News links at the top of the page to keep you aware of what's new on PbNation.
  • We also have a Community Focus area which will highlight interesting threads and happenings in the paintball community.

Note: If you've previously hidden the field & store finder, you've been defaulted back to the default of showing it. You can hide it again in your user control panel should you feel the need.

I like the new layout except for "The rectangle banner (previously located in the upper right corner) was made slightly larger and moved to the opposite side of the page." I really think that should be on the right hand side of the page.

I do not like this, Kyle. It's not appealing to the eyes at all.

Yeah, I kind of hate it.

edit- The square ad is dreadful to look at. It would look better if the news and community focus were all the way to the left. I have no idea how anyone could like having that ad right in their face on the left..

I prefer the ads on the right instead of the giant one on the left. There is now more space horizontally but less space vertically.

I've started a facebook group called "Bring the old layout back", if we get 20,000,000 people to join they will change it back.

Get rid of the 'Find stores and field', Move 'PBN News' and 'Community Focus' up one and make the ad fit two rows.

Idk why everyone's complaining about having to look at the ad on top of the page rather than the whole way down the thread. Scroll down you idiots, you're bound to anyway. The horizontal forum space is great!

Kyle can there be an option to remove the news and community focus? Kind of like on YouTube where you can remove the suggested videos and whatnot.

Ugh can we get an option for the old style in our user controls? Some of us had scripts to set up the page just how we liked it.
