StarWars.com has redesigned again. (I have to say, my favorite design is still the one during the prequel movie production time - with the awesome changing sidebar images.)

Coolest part to me - EUCantina gets a shiny link on the new Fansite page! http://www.starwars.com/connect/fan-sites/

Very Happy

Yes the EUCantina link is pretty cool. I like the new layout, it loaded faster and the images worked better for me. My only dislikes were ditching the title Databank for Encyclopedia, and the sudden removal of almost all references to "the Expanded Universe" But on the other hand they pretty much said that the stuff was taken down "for now" and that they planned to add things as they go, so I look forward to many great surprises.

Plus it helped us get over some changes of our own that we'd discussed at length. Wink

I have to say I like the changes. Looks better, and I like the organization.

I like it, too, however I remember something that OMB said on twitter. He said something like 'no one likes links to links', (don't quote me on that) yet the new site is comprised of links to links. Personally I'm indifferent. How do you feel about that?

Well I'm a seasoned veteran of videogame menus and rpg games, so links to links is familiar territory.

The new site looks pretty cool, but I will have to use it a little more for me to say if I like it better.

I always found links to links very helpful if the links that are linked to are useful Wink

Okay, I have an issue with the new site...what happened to The Clone Wars Episode guides? They've got video previews and picture galleries, but I didn't see any words like synopsis, cast, etc. Confused

I just noticed that they took down the The Clone Wars webcomics.

LAME.

Does anyone happen to have pdf scans or anything like that of those comics? I miss them already. Sad
