Website Revamp

Spain
By popular request... a complete redesign and revamp of my website debuted today.

Same content. New look. More bells, more whistles, more functionality (we hope).

There will be a few bumps as we ease through the transition, but we should have everything smoothed out and running well before too long.

Let us know your thoughts.

Only since you asked..
prefer the former, on basis, 'If it aint broke, don't fix it'. I miss the sigils - they were strikingly memorable & you knew you were in the right place; in someone's labour of love.I trusted the old site's rustic honesty. Like meeting Strider in the Prancing Pony; 'Foul would seem fairer', kind of thing. The new site seems too fair.It is sleek & glossy, yes, - like a sales catalogue &, well, too sterile for my taste, with a souless "sell, sell, sell" message, similar to any ubiquitous bookstore chains' sites. It's pitching too hard, IMO, and you, Ser, don't need to do that. Hell, it's your baby (or is it)? & there's nothing wrong with pitching & selling, per se, but it's kinda 'in your face' and pedestrian. I want dragon smoke, kraken coils in the deep, children of the forest hands' parting branches, blue blazing eyes in the dark, blizzards. And if I want to buy a wooly bunnet that says 'Winter is Coming' I'll go to HBO; not your site. I suspect HBO types' fingerprints are all over the new site design. I think I'll visit the new site less as its lost a lot of its character, but, then again, like one of Pavlov's dogs, I'll no doubt adjust. To sum up, the former site was "Ser Barristan Selmy" & the new one is "Daario Naharis", on whom the jury is still out.
