Still have the burning white background, if you would have just fixed that and none of the bugs I would be alot happier.

@Russell Clarke yes and make it more glowing white hot like a flouresant light and flashing on and off like the 'Eat at Joe's' neon sign.And while they are at it maybe they can see fit to add an EDIT post option :)

The white background doesnt bother me. I have black craft paper taped to my monitor with various stickers and cutouts for the sections i browse, and i wear tinted sunglasses when reading this site. Simple stuff.

Though i do think its a conspiracy that i cant after nearly three years post my avatar pic.......(sharpens pointy wooden stick)

@Graill440 Hey Graill, I can't get mine to work either... unless I use Firefox. Post in Firefox once, then log out and log back in, then upload your avatar. I haven't been able to NOT get it to work since trying it in FF.

When the podcasts in iTunes is still a bit messed up.

Got two versions of Massively Speaking in my podcasts folder, where one goes until episode 123 and one that goes from episode 108-126.

From the Cut & Paste of Joystiq's page to here, you still have a link to Massively at the top, instead of linking to Joystiq's site.

@CCon99 Yep, this one's still on the list for them to fix. Thank you!

I'm still hoping the "web gurus" behind the scenes can bring back the Massively layout. WoW Insider got moved to .joystiq.com and kept how their site looks, why didn't Massively? That's probably why so few complained when WoW Insider did it, because the site looked the same as always. Massively still looks different, and the bright white background is really bad on my eyes, especially at night.

@RogueJedi86 I can clarify a smidge: WoW Insider's sudden new URL had nothing to do with any site overhaul they may or may not get in the future, but rather with Aol's decision to use the wow.com domain for another site entirely. Fortunately, we got to keep our domain. :D

Still must say I wish we could get our tan site back, even if Massively's move was different from WoW Insider's. The reason behind the moves were different, but both did have the same result, moving all the URLs to the .joystiq. The difference being that Massively lost its site layout. Give us back the tan, even if you still have to keep the joystiq layout. :(

Once again posting my support for the white background.

The WoW Cataclysm launch was SIX days ago!!! Remove it from the list of upcoming releases on the right side of the front page. Do you not have a release date for RIFT or LEGO Universe, or does it have to just say Early 2011 until they are released?

The overload of white makes my eyes hurt. No other website (like Google, Broken Toys, Yahoo, Best Buy, Amazon, or any other site I visit with a white side border and text background like this one) makes my eyes hurt. It is literally the same feeling as eye strain from squinting trying to read 6 pt text.

Also, are you guys associated with Gawker? You know Gawker's plethora of sites was hacked and email addresses and passwords were stolen and are now available via peer to peer (torrent) transfers?

@notuba I'm sorry, I meant DCUO, not LEGO Universe. My mistake.

@notuba We're not in any way shape or form related to Gawker Media or any of its sites, no. They're the competition.

It would be awesome if some web monkey out there created an alternate style sheet for the site, so both sets of users (preferring dark or light backgrounds) can be happy... Just saying. ;)
