Agreed. The style and colour scheme is nice and very professional. Initially I was annoyed to have to create an AIM account to make a profile (there is no way I want to get FB involved) only to find some randomer who's probably never even heard of this site had already taken my screenname. At least as far as WoW.com is concerned, you can edit that in one's profile.Two main issues remain in my mind.1) EU characters need to be working. Soon.2) The profiles functionality needs to be better integrated with the site. For instance, I'm logged in, and yet when browsing there's nothing on this page to suggest that is the case. Even to go so far as to provide a "Click here to login!" button. Also, when someone is logged in, is it really neccessary that they should still have to provide an email address and password to post a comment?

Concise Overview1) I know it may seem like a lot of QQ but honestly alot of it is pretty simple. Shift some things around, polish the look up. Go from semi-professional look to highly-professional look with maybe a few hours of coding the layout.2) Better integrate the profiles into the site. I use WoWhead, I use HearthStone on Facebook, so you need to give me a reason (and probably others who are connected to even more sites) to make a profile on here and care about it. Give me a reason to not just go to the Armory instead. Give me a reason to CARE about having a profile on here.3) I'm a US player, but launching profiles without EU support might not have been a good idea. I don't know if this was a known issue at launch or if it was a surprise. But if it was known before hand, I think the launch of profiles/new layout should have been delayed to accommodate. Its going to alienate alot of EU players pretty quick.Additional CritqueTo add to the commenter above me-- I wish that when you posted a comment it link back to your character/game profile instead of just recent comments. (See #2)Speaking of comments: let us log in with our AIM-WoW profiles, let us have a chance to have our stats tagged to our comments if we want, something like the official wow forums. Of course, there should also be a control panel so each user can CHOOSE what information is available. (No one wants griefed by a level 1 on their server for posting a dumb or unpopular comment.) (Also see #2)The color doesn't bother me but I find I miss having any sort of... ...anything on the left hand side. It makes the layout feel unbalanced. Obviously this is personal taste. But if you're going to cram all the ads on the right side, why not put the recent stories, "other bloggers", etc all back on the left side and reduce some of the clutter? (See #1)Also I don't know what's about "Recent Posts/Featured Stories" but it has only ever been a white box for me. If its an add-- its wide and obnoxiously large. You already have one horizontal banner and two vertical ones... ...seriously. (See #1)Also does the Featured Gallery have to be so wide? (See #1)-- Firefox, 1280x800, Windows Vista Home --
