You have no idea how wonderful it is to be finally typing these words.
Not that my work is done: a SPB staffer's work is never done! But seriously: typing the blog out means that the big tasks are done, at least until someone discovers another critical bug hours before launch.
I've been Scene Point Blank's webmaster for over 4 years now (well, since SPB began, really) and I can safely say that the current site is the most ambitious and feature-packed it's ever been. One of the best parts for me as a programmer is that so much of the site is automated now that I can sit back and relax a hell of a lot more. My next goal is to program a review-writing robot so I can gradually replace the staff, one by one. I don't think anybody would notice if I swapped Neil out...
But I digress. What you really want to know (I hope) is just why the new site is the greatest thing on the internet. So without further ado, here is an enormous list of all of the changes, improvements, new features and other miscellany relating to Scene Point Blank in 2007.
I could go on and document every little code change made over the last six months, but the odds are you don't care. Hopefully you'll like the new stuff mentioned above, and find it useful in your site browsing.
Since we now live in the age of YouTube, it seemed only right for us to go amateur filmmaker and produce a brief short documenting the redesign. Click below to watch a quick documentary of the redesign process, including rejected designs, logo prototypes, production testing and a particularly exhausted Matt, laden with caffeinated beverages.
