Dear readers…

We’d love your feedback!

We’ve been toying with a few things here at Cyberpunk + Blue Twin, and we’d love to hear what you think.

Does the design work for you? Do you have suggestions about future topics or writing style?

Drop us a line and let us know what you’d like to see — or just say hi! It’s always good to know who’s reading.

If you’re an RSS subscriber, please excuse the older posts that reappear on your feed from time to time. Haven’t worked that one out! It happens when we edit older posts, as we sometimes do.

  1. Hi Guys,

    I follow via RSS with Firefox’s Livebookmarks and have not had any trouble with duplicates on re-edit.

    As for the design … on a 13.3″ laptop, your new banner takes up over half the screen. This means I need to scroll more. Could you consolidate the CP&BT picture onto the same line as your CB&BT title??

    Also – what happened to your sidebars? They’re now all “bottom bars”? (again – more scrolling).

    Over all – I like the old design format as It felt more ‘Cyber’ and more ‘Blue’! …. (though the new one does have a certain ‘mid nineties / made with notebook’ charm … which is comforting for an old Gen X cynic like me).

    Cheers,

  2. Liberating indeed, Nathan, but this is not the year I learn to play PHP.

    A trade-off for this theme’s minimalism is the removal of a sidebar. It also doesn’t display post authors, so we’ve had to introduce ‘Written by…’ categories.

    Mike, what’s the mid-90s thing? I was going for something more like this

  3. Oops. I meant ‘made with notepad’ charm.

    Subtle background *texture* is one thing … but design minimalism can often appear to edge close to subscribing to the principles of madewithnotepad web design (www.madewithnotepad.com).

    It was a nineties thing … before frames made html confusing, … and long before mere mortals considered learning “to play PHP”.

  4. I also use a RSS feed in thunderbird, and no problems with duplicates. I do find the link text hard to see on the new background though. Swap the mouseover and regular colours perhaps?

  5. I like how uncluttered it is but the grainy background makes the text look fuzzy after a while. Or perhaps that’s just because I’m gettng old and really need glasses :)
