First off, happy Independence Day! We just took the new site design out of beta. Let us know in this thread if you notice any bugs. The forum is only partially switched over—it’s loading the new “shell” but we haven’t made the full redesign live. (Expect that in the next couple of weeks.)
The new design is lightweight and leverages the latest web technologies. That means that the site is going to be a little faster, a little cleaner, and a little more consistent in look-and-feel. It also means that the site is fully responsive—open it up on your iPhone or Android and it’ll squeeze down nicely. The current forum design isn’t fully responsive yet, but that’s coming soon!
This new design will also allow us to do a bunch of interesting things in the future. This is the first step towards making the site a little easier to navigate, and keeping all the pieces of the site consistent. Our exam and education systems will be migrated over to the new site in the coming months, for example.
We’re really happy with the new design, and we’re excited about the new features it will let us quickly add in the future. I hope y’all enjoy it, too!
