Underworldlive.com 4.0 - New beta website
Hello Dirties!

We've been working on a new underworld website over the past few months and we're very nearly there. We wanted to give you guys a heads up first and give you a chance to have a look around the beta site before we launch.

We're very interested to hear any feedback and about any problems you may encounter.

We've got a long list of bugs that we are and will be fixing.

We hope you enjoy!

http://www.underworldlivebeta.com/

All the Best,
Underworld HQ

Re: Underworldlive - New beta website
it looks nice, but I'm not so sure about the fonts.

I'd prefer something a bit 'fatter' know what I mean?

Noice. Looks fresh and orderly. Particularly love the videos subsite.

Agreed. Or please make the fonts at least more uniform. Less variety as regards fonts, punctuation, spacing = more clarity and, in this case, more beauty.

I suggest compressing the image sizes on the music subsite. The covers are 1MB each at the moment, which might be an unnecessary burden on the server, and some users' pipes.

Will a full archive be added to the diary section? If not, someone good at get jobs might want to snitch 'em all off the current site and put 'em on the FTP server.

Also, please add lots of 2012 entries to the events subsite.

Re: Underworldlive - New beta website
What is going on with the text? Its rendering almost as images.Checked out the code -- and that's some crazy complicated code for such a simple page. Not sure the full story about "Cufon" as a font service, but from seeing it implemented I can easily and instantly say that I do not like it.

I'd recommend using a service like Typekit or Fontface to handle web fonts.

Edit: And its text that I can't copy/paste. Yuck!

Re: Underworldlive - New beta website
Agreed on the fonts. They don't display particularly well. I've seen better version of typewriter fonts that aren't quite as fuzzy. This one makes me think my eyes are going to bad.
Also, links are getting lost in the body text. The previous button at the bottom of most posts is tough to suss out, and there are a few links in-line with the body text of some posts that disappear altogether. Need a different color for links, bold, or a substantially different font for them.
