  1. Is there a reason/need that the poll is shoved way down to the bottom?

    I like the “Roll!” feature. Could our little explodies have more to them? Maybe some “Kaboom!”, “Explodey!” exclamatory remarks to highlight their criticalness.

  3. maybe its just me, but the poll is kinda hard to read…

  4. I can haz mor xplodees, plz?

    MainEvent- can you send me a screenshot, by any chance? The poll is fine on my browsers, but I’d like to see what you’re seeing. (Talk is hard to read on mine, so maybe there’s spillover or something)

  5. Looks good guys… only one problem.. not enough linkage to me!

  6. I like the new color scheme – much easier on the eyes. Some background color issues remain on ads and icons but that’s all I can see.

    Smooth transition! Keep up the good work.
