Thanks to everyone for the kind and honest feedback. We've been working on this for a while and it's good to see it finally in action. :D
Thank you so much. Not having to log into both wowhead and wowhead news is so nice :)
I noticed that the old /blog address does not exist anymore, in the days of wowheadnews.com it redirected to that site, why not keep is as a redirect to /news, if only just for legacy? I hate when links die when their content still exists.

I hate when links die when their content still exists.I redirected wowheadnews.com, wowheadnews.com/blog, and any rss links I could find. Are there really a lot of wowhead.com/blog links out there?
nice, gj.. does that mean i can steal your previous design? xDjoke aside.. shouldn't you change background-color of that Post A Comment and Submit button? you know, red is a ugly color.. the one from v1 was better..

so far, great. the old news site was a memory hog for some reason. this one is back to normal. great work!
always thought it was fine to begin with
Very nice, the only exception are the red buttons, a bit tooo red imo.
I have to say that I'm very happy to see that you have listened to the community and put it back onto your own domain. I, for one, have never really understood why you went ahead and put it on a totally separate domain. You could have used ie: news.wowhead.com. Would also save you 14.95 a year on domain registration fees (/giggle).This is just much easier in use, as you can quickly swap back to your profile, search something on the site etc.Good idea and welcome to wowhead.com, wowheadnews!
Thanks for all the hard work guys! You guys continue to make my life as a hardcore raider/PvP addict much easier! I need to look something up or view a zone map almost every day and I've nearly always been able to find what I'm looking for. Thotbot and the other "wannabe" WoW sites don't have anything over you. I really like the new News site too! It's obviously taken a lot of hard work and it hasn't gone unnoticed. Keep up the awesome work!A Wowhead fan always,phrostbhyte
I like this a whole lot better.
Amazing i can read on my portable devices, and never have to wait to get home much better guys... love the work keep it coming :)
This is just absolutely amazing.The old design would take like forever to load. I could open the news site, get up and grab a sandwich and come back, and the page would still be loading. This new design is like lightning fast now. Keep it up!I am lovin' this migration back to wowhead.com too. :)
Awesome design, I didn't have any problems with the last design though. But I'm really happy that's it's not on a seperate domain any longer, that was just pointless and annoying.
the search box seems to have vanished entirely nowI wanted to address this--the search box is Wowhead's search box now, it pulls news. Use it on the news page and you will see what I mean.
Excellent work. Much improved. Loving everything about the redesign/simplification.
Sweet job guys! Realy like it and it was needed. TY
Why. The. Hell. Is. The. Font. So. Big. On. This. Page?The code says 13px, like on the rest of the website, but it's comparably BIGGER!https://dl.dropbox.com/u/120650/wowhead_fontsize.png^ scaledPlease fix!If I do Ctrl - in my browser (Chrome), I get the size identical to the rest of the website.EDIT: Further data: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/120650/wowhead_fontsize2.pngI was wasked to post here rather than in the news comments.
congrats, i like it.
