Oh my gosh, that is a heck of a redesign.

I'm especially pleased about the gift cards, part of me opening up to my friends involved "joking" that they should get me BD gift cards for my birthday, only to find out they didn't exist anyway. Now I can say it and be completely serious. :stick:

Everything about the new site gets a thumbs up from me at first glance.

I think this is an excellent idea. Great for everyone on either side. Kudos to you guys once again! :widesmile:

Another thing about gift cards, how do they reflect on the receipt? Pretty sure BD is not planning on giving outright loopholes out of taxing and customs offices? Do they have a own stand between full purchases and free replacements, or do products paid with the cards show as full price items?

I still wish for an bonus program for returning customers but likely won't happen ^^

Already running BD on Chrome to allow scripts, whereas main browser has minimum of 2 script / ad blockers active.

Kona-stands. Get them now.


Can't get worse I guess. Back the days when the adoption page doesn't had a maximum of 100 toys per page you basically couldn't get it to load on your phone and even good CPUs had troubles with loading all the stuff at once

The new website promo video looks great!

I'm curious to see how the custom color picker works with the 3D model options- will the picker still work with the 2D layout or will we see something that looks essentially like the mock ups in the Color topic? :excited:

And it'd be nice if the Real Size tool could also do comparisons between models!

Let's take a moment to think how we reply if people ask when we're holding credit cards towards our monitors. "Because throwing the wallet is old times", "Measure twice, cut once"?

It can. I did not spend money on some games only because their store pages were not working fine enough.

That was the one thing I wondered. What place will the forums have in the new website. Apart from that, it looks pretty good.

OK, so it's probably just placeholder text, but did anyone else spot the new toy names in the video? For example:

Also some random names between 2:32 and 2:33 in the video. I could spot Xerxes, Gala, Magnus, Glyph. I wonder if it is just placeholder text, or if some of the toys are being renamed, or if it's some sort of teaser, or an in-joke' perhaps? Or maybe I'm just reading too much into it.

No, you were right the first time, this seems to me like the best thing about the new site. :stick:
The Narse artwork is the reason I found BD in the first place and the stories really add to the whole fantasy theme of the site. Great to see they're being featured more prominently.

Nooooooope! Change scares and infuritates me! WILLOW SMASH!

Kidding, it looks pretty good from what I can tell. I like the way you did the "surprise me" color (1:28), that was cute. And interested in your "getting back to your roots", so you've got my pickle piqued.

Ok, I'm all here for the new website! The "show furry content" button is genius! People who love the stories and art can still have them, and people who don't care for them can hide it. Simple solution that's pretty perfect! :dukeretro:

Also, I'm really excited by the "Actual size" feature. I remember talking about how something like that could be implemented on the forums forever ago. Cool to see it come to life! It'll really help me, I know that for sure.

And 3D models yeeesss! I feel like I'll spend hours with that feature. :stick:

You're right!! All the toys have names now except the demon dick and egg plug. The dragon tongue is also now "Winston's tongue" and Xerxes is the royal dragon. ugh pausing videos on mobile is hard

I'm personally very impressed with this update! It looks super user friendly and resolves a lot of issues people were having. And I absolutely love the furry content button because it means we won't have to see people complain from both ends of the argument with every new toy :widesmile:

Yeah there are a few third-party sites offering that functionality. I bet it would be much easier for BD since they already have all the info and don't need to take measurements and photos to build the database.

And on a related note... will there be an internal 3D view for penetrables? The outside is nice and all, but it's the inside that's critical for shoppers when comparing and making their decision.

Honestly it's good to see an update to the website. It has been due for an update now for quite a while. ESPECIALLY the adoptions page.


But..
I'm just not sure what to think about them naming the Ultimate Fantasy Archer and having a sleeve named Lana. Like, it's funny but at the same time I'm just "jfc why"
I guess it's more because Archer isn't really a character I'd ever consider fantasizing about but that's really just me.
