the design is nice but as far as the 800x600 thing goes.. yeah no kidding x_X

The page should flow more rather than being static in the center. You can still keep it resolution independant that way.

Cool stuff :thumbsup:

I like the simplistic design of it, and I've always been a big fan of gray :D

Nice, the size is ok, the only other 3D software site that is bigger than 800*600 is softimage..
Discreet, Alias use the same size as Newtek.. :thumbsup:

Now put up the Lightwave demo for people to download and it's alright :applause:

Great.. :) :thumbsup: :applause:
If you make a higher polycount or use a special saving fileformat then you will have a really good learning version of LW..
It's not that easy for a "newbie" to make a good model under 200 points :hmm:

you can make a model over 400 points ....400 points is the limit for saving....

OK, NewTek seems to listen to their users. As for the new design, itīs nice but what was wrong with the old one? never mind, just wonderin . Will the next release of LW be for free for buyers of 7.5 or will I have to upgrade for cash? ( Wondering now if thatīs a question you NewTek guys can tell or not).

I like the sounds of the ":)" Just take our money at LW8 and let the tradition of FREE upgrades continue!

Has anyone else been getting "not allowed access" messages for posting, viewing attatchments, whatever.

I assumed it was birthing pains but no one else has mentioned it, so I think it must be something with my account.

sorry, but i'm not sure about this new design. The header curve breaks at the end of the image, the shadow on the curve is too strong and it makes it look very amateurish.

Don't get me wrong, grey is nice, but not like this. There is hardly any contrast, it looks very dull and some of the header images are not very crisp ( like the chess board for instance ).

And wrapping the whole page into a table is not a good idea. Not all people have a fast connection, and they only get to see the whole page once all elements are downloaded. It doesn't show up progressively ( ok, who cares, but it's generally a big no no in professional webdesign ) .

And why can't mmLoadMenus() function sit in its own js file ? I don't have to download it with every page, do I ?

All in all the new site still doesn't have the same design quality as aliaswavefront's, discreet's or softimage's website.

I'm a LW user myself, and I'm not attacking anyone. Just hope that Newtek will sort out their web image next time. It will only benefit Newtek.

But I like the new forum. Much easier to use now ;)

How about upgrading your T-Shirts too? I ordered a T-Shirt with my 7.5 upgrade from 6.5, but unfortunately there was no upgrade to the T-Shirt which still only runs 6.0

C'mon guys don't you know how important T-Shirts are to animators?

While I'm on the subject, I'll mention again:
FREE T-Shirt with regular priced upgrade: show us regulars that you love us :)
