  1. To be honest, it is a bit… sparse. The difference in color choices between the main content block and the sidebars is such that the page can look like just one big, white canvas with divs floating around.

    The top bar could use some fattening – a bit of padding and stylizing there can go a long way.

    Overall, just lacks enough contrast. Otherwise… it’s fairly good.

  2. I like the new look.

    What is a big white sparse canvas for Michael is a clean easy to read canvas for me.

    I do have two suggestions, though.

    1. Make the ‘bubble’ that encloses the post titles are little more defined.

    2. Make the Name/Mail/Wesite input boxes in the Leave a Reply area a little more obvious. It took me a couple of seconds to figure out what was going on there. Sure, it follows the standard format for commenting facilities so can be easily worked out, but not actually being able to see the boxes was jarring and initially confusing.

    The new logo is greatly geeky.

  4. Vadim P. says:

    Sidebar looks broken on a smaller screen.

  5. Angel says:

    It agree with Michael it’s very sparse looking, could use a bit of spicing up.

    I do like the new logo…definitely geek!

  7. Mike says:

    I agree with Michael Wallar: the sidebar needs something to differentiate it from the main content.

    The RSS feed logo is really nice. The twitter icon should be centered as well, to be visually grouped with the RSS feed logo. Alternatively you could put the RSS logo and RSS count on one line, and put a twitter follower count to the right of the twitter logo.

    The Ubuntu Geek logo is very cute.

    For consistencies sake perhaps you could give the grey menu bar (top) rounded corners.

    Maybe you could put a text header/google text ads between the logo and the Google search bar. Otherwise it’s just wasted space.

    Other than that it looks good!

    I like it, better than before, more space and cleaner look.

  9. hessmo says:

    I will agree that while I like the layout, the colors need a little bit more contrast, it just llooks like one big canvas.

    I even had a little trouble finding the blanks to type in my information for the comments.

    Love the website though thanks for all the help

  10. Chris says:

    Agree with both previous comments, plus contrast between backgrounds and fields or divs insufficient.. causes you to strain to see demarcations between content, esp. noticeable trying to find text boxes to type name an email for this reply section. Shapes look good, maybe just darken up background a bit?

  11. Scribbly says:

    Definitely a step in the right direction…much cleaner and more modern looking. Love the logo.

    I agree with Michael; a bit more colour would not go astray…maybe try using a really light red(similar to gray), with a darker red shadow for your headings to add a bit of colour and separation. Even reverse, white text on red background with lighter red shadow…just make sure the font is not ‘overwhelmed’. 🙂
    You have 4 ‘primary’ colours(red, dark orange, orange and charcoal), so spread the colour around a bit more! ;->

    Also, maybe add more left margin to your sidebars so they center more…a bit of whitespace tends to make things easier to read and not look so crowded

    Definitely looks better in FF than IE.

    Sorry for ‘going on’…just my feedback and suggestions.

    Here is what I don’t like.

    First of all, the fonts are too small. Why are you forcing people to use browser’s zoom only because you have an excellent eyes?

    Secondly, the dark bar on the top is out of place here, I think.

    And one more thing — those headers on the gray background with funny crimps. They seem to be unrelated to the block the are related to.

  13. Jason says:

    Too much white! If there were some darker colors to lighten the page up it would be better. It hurts my eyes to look at so much white on a page.

  14. Jeff says:

    1. The logo is interesting, I wonder how it will evolve.

    2. ?

    3. I have to agree that the colors are a bit light, when viewing on an LCCCD I have to adjust the screen to make the ‘boxes’ visible.
    A darker scheme would look rather nice.

  15. I like it, much better than the old one, and I liked the colors 🙂

  16. Ivo Limmen says:

    It’s better than the previous. The previous was a bit too colourful, this one is a bit too simplistic but it doesn’t yell.

  17. admin says:

    @Thank you so much guys we will try to do some changes

  18. Matama says:


    What really matter are your brilliant posts

    Keep on going

    Thank you very much for your work.

  19. alifaan says:

    Much better then old one. My suggestions: give the hole container some padding, also change #pg with no background color, color red, and much bigger px text. Try and see how it will looks.

  20. Simon Cowell says:

    I’m going to agree with……..


  21. obscur156 says:

    The only thing i dont like is that there is too much WHITE.Its hard on the eyes.Other then that ,i like it .

  22. Kevin Murche says:

    Like the new site. The only suggestion is make the article headings a bit more bolder so that they stand out more.

  23. krul says:

    Love it!

  24. Mark W. Tomlinson says:

    Frankly, I like the “sparse” new look. The ubuntugeek site has been a good source of information for some time – if this is streamlined, so much the better.

  25. brgulker says:

    Looks great! I love the new logo, in particular. Very clever.

  26. Austin Kim says:

    I like the logo but whole site seems unbalanced. How the semi-content lay out on the main page gives me little confusing. Also, some of things on the right side goes off screen with Chrome, FF, and IE.

    Overall, I like changes. Some fresh look but it should have done little more homework.


  27. x33a says:

    well yes, it’s better than the previous theme. but, this theme is too white, needs some colours.

    reminds of qt 4.5.

  28. Mark Preston says:

    I will say I prefer the “old” look.

  29. Andrew says:

    The theme is not so important, just keep the content coming, maybe post more than before….

    it will take a while for me to digest
