Blah, SW.com should get a good design going and stick with it for awhile. Otherwise you confuse people trying to figure out the new design.

Eve of Episode III Production?

I liked the orignal design the best (I think its the one when Phantom Menace was out)

*shakes his head* too many inconsistancies (forgive my bad spelling)... home page, new design, click link, another new design but different, another click and it's back to the old design!

OMG :eek:

It reminds me of an excited kid who's just learnt how to use FrontPage....

I know exactly what you mean.

Trust me when I say, I could do a hell of a lot better than that crap.

me too, they should have sticked with the way, way old one (the one before ep1) now THAT was a good website!

This one looks messy and disorganized. The last version was the best.

06-07-2003, 12:18 AM
It sucks!!!!!!

It's so basic...

06-07-2003, 12:22 AM
*shakes head*

For some reason I can't remember the old old look.

I really liked the AoTC look however.

I think I could do better than that with just learning my first lesson in html.

Ok....maybe not. :p

06-07-2003, 08:12 AM
ok, ok people, let me explain

sw.com had a design
for EP1, they changed it
for EP2, they changed it
starting to see it?

you're missing the point. we're all wondering why it looks like they downgraded the site instead of upgraded it

They could have done sooooo much better. It looks like a school project ffs.

Maybe that's it... maybe they held some competition we didn't know about where the winner was some stupid school kid who got to make a new design... XP

heh! don't dis school projects! :mad:

*is proud of his school website, partialy made by him*

Was it entered into a Star Wars design competition by any chance?

06-12-2003, 03:00 AM
come on.. it's not THAT bad. I agree i liked the previous vesion much better, but it still looks ok. The whole star wars fell is greatly dimminished, but i think they still did a good job. They went for a portal kinda look, pretty much everything is accesiible from the home page now, i like that. And i'm sure everyone's gonna be more comfortable with the design as they visit the site.

and besides, it semms as they only have made the ep3 section this way (yet), and tell me if i'm mistaking, but it's only accesibble for the hyperspace thingy suscribers, looking at the other thread taking about this it doesn't seem like much of you guys will register so you really have nothing to complain about.

edit: oops! took a second look and some of the features concerning ep3 are available withouth paying. still most of it isn't free.:rolleyes:

now that i took a second look, i think i really like the new design.

Pffft, it's rubbish.

I like the look it had for AOTC. It looks like GL had his kids do it or something....

nah, GL's kids could do better :p

that sucks! oh that is a horrible attempt at web design. could they have chosen ugly colors? ack phoey. Well...I'm not going to visit it until they put some more good material on it. So watever.

06-12-2003, 02:33 PM
It looks terrible. It really does. What on earth has possessed these people? The colours are awful. The design is very poor. And it takes an absolute age to load on a 56k connection. I've been sitting here for over 2 minutes waiting for that page to load. They've actually managed to make the navigation less inuitive. It's just an untidy jumble...and the menu looks like someone wanted to test their 1337 flash skillz... Oh God...

*finds a paper bag and vomits* :barf:

The previous design was miles better, and loaded a lot faster.

Oh well...someone let me know when they come to their senses...I won't be visiting that site again for a while if it takes that long to load every page.
