The Sword of Damocles

The time has finally come. No more safety net, no take backs. Welcome to the new Gamers With Jobs! There's still some question of whether or not the site will crumple under its own weight once more traffic starts streaming in, but so far it's been ticking along pretty well. Despite the sword dangling over our collective heads, I'd say we're optimistic.

We are experiencing sporadic bouts of sluggishness when loading pages, but Jeff is working hard to nail down any lingering speed bumps. If you spot any major problems or anything that might help us optimize the site, do let us know! Also note that it may take a day or two for gamerswithjobs.com to move over to the new server space. Until that happens, some images (like the Conference Call and articles) may not appear on the site.

Thanks!

It's sort of new and shiny! Yay?

Excellent!

And we're all alive and well.. Wait....has anyone seen Rabbit? Oh God.

We've left him!

I love it, especially on higher resolution displays.

Congrats! Love the new digs!

So any chance of a big feature list for the new site in its final form?

Looking good!

Once things settle and the raw performance is good, we'll go into current features and what's coming in the future if/when Jeff recovers from the abuse

*deep breath*

I am not afraid of change

Does the new site have spellcheck? Oh wait, [i]I guess the sword was expressing disapproval instead of dangling.

I think this was a problem from before. It seems the mark all topics read button works within the specific group (for example marking all posts in the everything else section will actually mark all posts read) but when you got to the forums list it will still read that section as having new posts. The sports section seems to work, either that or it is always showing as having no new posts I am not sure.

Also using the mark all forums button in the forums list section doesn't seem to work either. I still show every forum as having new posts except for the sports section.

I am using latest Firefox 2.0 version for a browser.

Other than that the site seems to be working really nice.

Great stuff, I really like the new(ish) look!
Also I just now reallized that the lil' guy who looks over you as you read the site changed up his suit, too; lookin' sharp amigo.

Woo hoo! Good job, the site looks nice.

Sweet! it's finally here. Been looking foward to this like a 6 year old looks foward to xmas... kinda

edit: And as if that weren't enough I get an upgrade to linebacker!!!

Hooray! Thanks for the hard work, before and after the switch.

Great!! Thanks for all the effort
Am sure it's going to be greatly abused!

great change guys!

I love the new design guys. Great job!

Finally, great job on the site!

The new site looks great.

I like the look, but there's this massive space in the middle of the page below the banners at the top, where there is some stuff on the left hand side, and I have to scroll about two pages down to get to the articles or the list of forums or whatever page I'm on.

Looks very good. Much slicker.

What browser are you using, and on what OS?

Everything looks great, good job guys

They should've sent a poet.

Looks like I need to get a better job to hang out on this fancy new web site!
