They were redesigning. Sneaky, sneaky… I had a few issues with the site last night, viewing it on a computer with an older version of Flash (hey, I’d upgrade if I could) but those are all pretty much gone now. It’s a vast improvement over the random Flash-and-planets front that they’ve been sporting since C4, and a lot more dynamic. Several sections are also sporting the new design, including news posts and Databank. (I do miss having a dedicated news page, but there’s always the archives.)
And from this end, at least, it seems the launch went fairly smoothly. (We had some ‘page not found’ errors last night, but they seem to have cleared up.)
(Mostly) complete screenshot is under the cut for posterity.
