Is that a new outfit?

Undoubtedly, many of you have noticed that Gamer Bait has undergone some changes over the past five days or so. We've moved from a simple, two-column, average-blog-style layout to what we hope is a more professional looking three-column format. The website is now optimized for a viewing resolution of 1024x768 or larger, since the vast majority of our readers (97%) use at least that resolution. A few weeks ago, we added Google AdSense pay-per-click ads to the site in an effort to generate a little bit of revenue for some of the changes and improvements that are still on the way for the site. Along with the layout revamp, we've exchanged the original text-based ads for graphical advertisements which (we hope) will blend in with the site a little bit better. We've added ourselves onto both AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) and Xfire, so that you can reach us in real-time if you choose to (assuming we're online). You can of course still reach us by email at And as I outlined in my post on Friday, we've branched out into another medium entirely with the weekly gaming segment found on Damon & Klitts' Two Cents podcast. This past week has been the first major step towards what our "final vision" for Gamer Bait is, and more changes are on the way. We thank you for bearing with us through our growing pains as we try to improve Gamer Bait to better serve you. It'll be awhile before we have any more major announcements as far as major changes to the site or other projects, so we'll be back to our usual "programming" starting tomorrow.
