"...we think our new digs at WoW.com are pretty darn comfy."THEY may think so, but there are a whole lot of the readers here saying otherwise - SPECIFICALLY about the comment-box colors. It's stark, it hurts the eyes, it needs to be adjusted...but it appears now that they don't give a **** about what their readers think, they're instead just going to plug on with what they have. Typical AOL mentality.It looks like I'm going to have to start looking for a different site that doesn't cause me to have to squint at the screen and wince.

I couldn't agree more, the grey background is terribad. The rest of the site looks good and still the same good ol reading. The comment box though, it burns! Maybe white background and have it go to a blue with the uprating or something.Plus the font is terrible too, should be relitively simple to change that I'd imagine.

I find it funny how the one comment they choose about that post just happens to be favoring the change. The majority of the comments were actually the opposite.

Good lord, comments like this are so ridiculous. You guys realize the existence of this site is, and always has been, doing us a FAVOR right? You critique an enthusiastic change to a website run, built, and moderated by guys just like us that are just playing a game they love, except, unlike you, they're willing to go the extra mile to provide us with content as good as what you'll find here... and you're so ungrateful as to slap their wrists for changing the color scheme? Just read your comments.The guys here do a great job. Without the site, the wow community would be much less informed than it is today. As far as I'm concerned, its theirs.. if they feel like changing the colors, layout, name, whatever.. they can do it as long as they're still around.Why don't we show them a little respect. They don't owe you anything.

@ JT - while it is true that they provide this service for free, the facts still remain:1. If they ignore what the readers are seeking, they begin to lose readership. This, in turn, results in lost advertising revenue from click-throughs and sponsorships, which results in them not getting paid, which results in the site having to charge a subscription if it wants to stay afloat, which results in even fewer readers...2. It's still hard on the eyes.

/Agreed and to be honest I used to NOT be able to keep up with this site in the past they would crank out so many articales in a day, now, meh I can catch up in less than five minutes. It seems the quality has gone down, while they stand on the mailbox shouting, "Hey Guys looks at us, can we have some gold please?"
