Don't Hate Me Because I'm Beautiful

A new look for The Metropolitans. Whooo-hoooo! I can hardly contain my excitement.

Let me know if you like it and I’m switching to blogger’s commenting instead of Halo Scan. Let me know your preference on the commenting and please let me know if something looks off in your browser.

UPDATE: It looks fine in firefox and completely jacked up in IE. Now I'm lost. Let me know how your's looks anyway.

Yeah, nothing like a good old fashioned ass kicking in front of some obnoxious fans.

The new look of the page is good, but my suggestion is to use a background color other than white. Besides from being kind of dull, it's not easy on the eyes, like staring at light bulb. I would recommend using a color schema similar to what you previously had, like the white font on the dark bluish background.

Hmm...I actually liked the white, that's why I chose it. The entire simpler is better. I hated my old color scheme.

I agree, not a big fan of the white. I am a fan of 13 to 4 shallackings, however.

The links and misc bar on the left side could be a little smaller in my opinion, it distracts too much from the content.

Eat it philly


hopefully reyes doesn't fall in love with the home run again.

So, not digging the white....what if I made the text black?

The new look will make it much easier to get away reading it at work...the dark blue screen is a giveaway I'm not working...

Also, the mets are 1-0 with this setup...

I like it, but maybe the white is a little harsh. On the third hand, anyone that takes design advice from me should have their crayolas confiscated. How's that for non-helpful?

On the other hand, it's a good opportunity to tell you how much I like the blog. And writing (and the Mets) are things I DO know something about.

Great job. Now, if we can only get Heilman into the rotation...

Wow, the white is negative so far. I guess I'm the only one.

Yes, it also makes reading at work easier and that is not small benefit. I might just switch the thing back tomorrow at this rate.

I'll start keep score

White - me
Color - everyone else

I made the sidebar skinnier...not sure it made a difference.

The old design was okay, but the one problem that I had was that the main text was limited to a narrow part of the page on the computers I was using. I really like the pic with title on top of the page though. Remember, as long as the content is top notch people will come by and read.

Please go back to the old way. I'm sure you put plenty of work into the new design but your old design was a million percent more aesthetically pleasing. I read your page all the time and always use IE as well so please go back cuz old design is F'in swell.

Abit is right, even if you keep it like this I'll still always come back because this is a great, great site. Thanks for all the work you put into it.

Sorry, last post. Specifically, the white background is not fun and the old header was better. I'm not a big fan of the picture.

Looking up how Kazmir is doing everytime he pitches is really heartbraking.With him we would be untouchable. Can't get over it.

Well, it's a change, now isn't it? I think I agree about the white. The old background was distinctive, very Mets-like.

Plus, the header doesn't fully display in Safari (my preferred transport) but looks good in FireFox. IE is just a pain in the you know what, but that's par for the course with Microsoft - too many glitches. Anyway, I hate it, so no longer use it.

Yeah, the white....not a big fan off. The old site did have a Met vibe. Maybe a blue background with orange text.

The picture?? Is that opening day of this year?? Last year?? Maybe a cool montage of Mets history.
Or if you leave the pic, maybe change the grey boarder of 'the metropolitans' to an duller orange. The grey kinda blends in with the pic on it doesnt really stand out.

I dont know what you'll do about the links you had on the side. I'm sure there's some kinks to work out.

Point is Mike, you tried your best, but failed miserabley. The lesson is: Never try.

I like it, though it is a little jacked up in IE.

It is tough to mess with mojo though. Even if you decide to go back, you have to wait until the Mets lose.

Mike,

I don't mind the white. But I liked the old way also.

I am on IE at work, and the side bar stuff is all at the bottom of the page, so that sucks. I have Firefox at home; haven't checked it there yet.

I am big on the karma stuff, too. Since we are 1-0 with the new page, you may want to leave it alone until we lose.

I logged on last night and the site looked great - today it's back to the way it was. What happened? (not that I'm upset, since my blog looks pretty much the same).

Blogger mr. met said...

Is that opening day of this year??

Yes, it was. It was the only picture I had worth anything.

Point is Mike, you tried your best, but failed miserabley. The lesson is: Never try.

Words I try to live by.

Kenny, the mojo has been lost. LimaTime! pitches tomorrow for christsakes.

IE fucks up the sidebar..I might try moving it to the right side and adding some background colors.

Truth be told, I hate my current one...I'll figure something better out...

Toasty, I caved to people. I'm a people person.
