Plastic surgery oh so sexy

It took longer than the pyramids to build—but finally OilersNation 2.0 has arrived.

A new sexy look.

More functionality in the coming weeks:

  • RSS feeds
  • The ability to make a blog roll
  • A boob job and nose reduction

It's almost all here, Nation, and it's the new hotness.

This new site is the next phase of our Master Plan™. Now that the technical hurdles are out of the way, things are going to start happening—and fast.

Don't we look sexy? Mmm mmm mmm.

The new era of the OilersNation begins now.

I couldn't be happier to see this up and looking good.

We realize there are lots of fine tuning that needs to be done and we would love your help.

Please send any comments/suggestions to oilersnation@gmail.com

And please remember that RSS feeds are coming and you will be able to sort articles by author soon!

Not completely TB. We had this pic saved from awhile back, it just took us awhile to find it.

New layout looks great, now if only we could figure out how to make our site look like it wasn't put together by a 7 year old retard.

Wayne travels South, and Burke resigns? Coincidence? ....

Seriously Wayne, what did you do and / or say to chase the mouthpiece himself from the Western Conference like that?

I mean this in the nicest possible way, but this layout (and the last one) assaults my eyes. I'm not 100% sure why this is. It might be that the ads clash horribly with the colour scheme of the site. It might be that the box layout on the index page doesn't flow, or it might be that the colour scheme of the posts themselves don't mesh with the backgrounds that they're on.

That said, I like the header and the background texture.

Your distress/textured tiling on the left side of the page doesn't match the size of the ad bar(the brown). The tiling doesn't mesh very nicely either..you can see the join lines.

The stick tape is a nice touch.

I was hoping for a new logo with the revamp...any plans?

Looks to be on track anyway, good work.

Hey guys, nice backgrounds, but the font sucks. I have a harder time readings it. (I feel like a grandpa make the test so large) Also the Header (hockey tape) is great, but the add layout is boring and makes your articles seem distance (I'd suggest some stagger or off setting: it would focus the article while creating more eye movement towards the adds).

The stick tape is nice.

As long as we're passing out suggestions, can we have some basic text effects available, please? I'm not asking for a lot of fancy things like spell check, but it would be nice to put quotes in italics once in awhile, or bold a really important word. Please?

Hey Ender, you should already be able to do that using basic html tags: like bold and italics

Man, fire your IT team. This looks like it belongs on a test server. Hint: there are more browsers out there than the craptacular M$ IE. It looks pretty much broken in Firefox with the headlines running over the dates.

Ugly, other than the tape effect. Animated ads make it difficult to read. Don't you want readers? Don't you want to be different than the MSM? At least when reading the real Oilblogospere, we don't have to subject ourselves to the eye headaches and seizures we get here.

Print is far too small and doesn't re-size. Browser windows struggle with re-sizing. And one of the easiest things of all, a blogroll, is still not there.

....You guys still suck.

Have you tested this in Firefox? Same issues as MJ.

Also get the blogroll done sooner rather than later and do you realllly need ads on both sides of the screen? I won't miss them if they are only on one side.

Oh and ads that are dynamic suck... they distract the eye when reading content.

Loyal ON Reader

Looks better in Safari, but the sizing issues make the site pretty much suck in Firefox.

I tell my guys to be a bit more patient with development rather than release what is in reality a beta version.

Having said that, this is supposed to be a blog site (even though its really an aggregator), so I guess you'd expect some imperfection, although I would really expect to see a blog roll. Nice to see you're working on stuff anyways.

Yikes. Sorry to hear that DJ Spyn Cycle. I never imagined this morning that this was a professional job. That's embarrassing. They better still be working, maybe even ordering pizzas. I know I'd be stuck at work if I made such a grand blunder.

PS. If they're at work fixing this mistake and have spare tickets as a result, I can still make the game in time. ;)

i don't like the dual rows of ads on the site... it is super distracting and looks generally ugly. if you guys want more ad space just put it one side instead of enshrining your nice blog in adverts.

i do like the new colours and textures. just drop the new row of ads on the left and add some more functionality and you guys are set!
