I think the colors on the HELP page (yellow and blue) are too different from the rest of the site.

On news, there's no need to have both: Sharks: Terrors of the Deep 2 Beta and that it's released. Nobody is interested in that it has been in beta when it's been released...

Same goes for Goldfish.. no need for 2 messages saying it's on beta and coming soon....

The background has to go. The black with some kind of blue at the bottom. I thought something was wrong with my monitor. Go with all black, or make the color more pronounced.

Pat,

Actually I thought almost the same thing when I first saw it. I was working on the help page and adding text, the 3D drivers, and so on, while Morgan was working in another area. I had just uploaded some changes when I hit refresh and Morgan had changed the background on me. The first time I looked I thought, well *%#%^@# that wasn't supposed to happen how did I manage that. After he got done laughing at me and I got used to it I like it. Give it some time, it might grow on you.

The current design of the website is basically a straightjacket. I've tried to pitch some other ideas including a light blue background for the content with different fonts. The site just doesn't look professional to me anymore. Anyone can produce a white or color-on-black website.

Brought up the gradient a bit.

That's fine as long as you don't get commercial colored glasses. However, if you are designing a commercial website, put on your glasses.

The text.

Also, (IMO), on the Help page I think there are too many fonts, different sizes, and too many colours. And this latest background doesn't help!. - It makes your eyes hurt. The other background was fine.

Jim don't keep us waiting, do we have an official release date yet for 2.6? Will this have a 3D background?

Version 2.6 is 2 new fish, the 3D background is still a long time away.

I think it looks great buddy. It was a nice surprise to come to the site and see the new page design.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Question

Hello,
I don't want to rain on the love-fest, but can you please release a version of the screen saver that has a widescreen background?! I've had a 20" iMac for about a year now and can tell you that looking at the stretched, pixelated background ruins the whole thing.

Seriously, how about addressing something like this before you keep adding fish (it must be easier to render a background capable of 1680x1050 resolution, than it is to create all new fish models)?

I wrote in months back and the reason given was that the download file would be 7MB's (due to the artwork of the background). So? Who cares? Offer it as an alternative download for those who can make use of it.

Honestly; I love this app, but this update needs to be addressed. It's getting a bit old having to nudge politely for something that (as a firm selling a product) should have been addressed long ago.

Thanks.

Marine Aquarium for Macintosh has had a widescreen background since November 2004.
