Today we will be rolling out the first phase of improvements to our website. Behind the scenes stuff like databases and file systems have been overhauled, images have been optimized and load times and usability should (hopefully) be vastly improved.
The most obvious change (should be) the look of the site. The interface was feeling a little old & saggy, but has had a nice little face lift and is feeling pretty sexy.
On top of our already cool monthly SWAG giveaways, we've added a brand new, totally rad contests section. Erik will be posting cool giveaways here at least a couple times a month. Prizes could include concert tickets, autographed goodies, free cd's & books, or any number of things, so be sure to check it often if you want to win.
Videos are getting some love as well, with a cool new full screen media player that let's you really watch them in their full HD goodness.
Okay so admittedly this "improvement" is kinda lame. But, servers are expensive, and as much as we love bring you the latest in music & fashion for free, we have to pay the bills too. But, we promise to keep the ads tasteful and to a minimum.
So that's the scoop on the new site. What do you think ? Love it? Hate it? Let us know!
That's just the start. We'll be rolling out even more cool new features over the next couple of months, so stay tuned!
