This is not the first major change in design in our nearly 11 year existence. We do think it is the most extensive one, but still a lot will be familiar since you do not need to fix something that is not broken. In our opinion the site is softer now, less hard on the eye. The pink connection to Elvis is clear, but we did not want to slip from history completely, so we kept some blue in it. Still it is all a matter of taste and you cannot make everybody happy.
More important are the usability changes we made: you can now login on every page and on every page is a major link to subscribe for new visitors. There are also some other visual changes that make things more clear, like the “Give your opinion buttons” and the dividers between reactions. Also some inconsistencies are repaired. Last but not least the quickpoll is back, since we kind of missed the discussions it sometimes caused. Later this year there will be some more additions to the site that might be very useful for visitors that want to extend their knowledge about the man and his music.
Of course we spent a lot of time testing everything, but there might be something we overlooked. If you find anything that does not work correctly, please let us know and we will fix it.
