Ummmmm.....

Is this a contender for worst website redesign?

http://www.queenonline.com

Horrible fonts, over lapping text, mis-aligned elements on the page... It's like they just took a leap backwards.

On the plus side at least they don't have frames anymore.

To be honest, it looks like an average fan site. But the red is TERRIBLE .

I saw it yesterday and conjectured that it MUST be a transition page until the real new site is up. It MUST be.

That's pretty poor....

At least the forum looks better right now.
And the content has improved as well. ;)

Pure Awful...a band like queen should have the best website going, this looks like something someone designed on the back of an envelope. I think Jacky in the fan club should be given more staff and should take over the "official" Queen website - she has the passion to do whats right.

For someone that's been resident here for a LONG time, I'm shocked that you seem to be surprised.

What do you expect from a "set of people" that can't even edit a live CD set to have the songs in the correct order that they were played.

I don't like the new site layout. I don't think there was anything wrong with the old one. Bring it back.

The forum isn't working either. :(

He didn't say he was surprised. ;-)

It's a pity it doesn't look better. I wonder if the forum will have to start from scratch, since it's been down for so long.

That would probably be for the best, all things considered... Wipe the old post(er)s away and it should stay nice for a few weeks at least. ;)

It's not the worst site I've ever seen. For an official site it's too basic though. Look at what kind of websites other artists have. A lot more could've been done with all the Queenartwork (albumsleeves etc).

Still, it's not bad.

Well for me personally the earliest version was worse than presentXD At least the first impression is better, i like the colors, though it cannot compete with Queenzone.... Guys that made this site, I'M TRULY PROUD OF YOU!!! Thank you so much!!! It's so simple, tidy and interesting. Bravo guys!!

I think its time for Queen to think about making some changes to thier creative staff. Poor album sleeves (ROTC & QRM) and now a bad design on an offical website. Everything seem so amateurish...

I think the new website can be summed up by the fact that on the Videography section, they have details of the "Freddie MURCURY Tribute Concert"

What an absolute disgrace.....

(p.s. In addition, the tribute concert is also missing from the DVD section of the videography)
