New look for ACM

ACM is trialling a new look – more modern, cleaner, less cluttered, and most importantly, easier to read. Features will be tweaked over the coming weeks.

Leave your feedback in the comments and let us know what you think.



  1. looks ok to me…but as long as the message is consistent and delivered…thats the important thing imo. well done.

  2. “I just love what you’ve done with the curtains … very retro and chic, but it clashes with my pink tutu.” – Bob Brown

    “Tim and I prefer something a bit more boganish, but I guess we could learn to live with it. Where’s the beer fridge guys?” – Julia Gillard

    On a more serious note Simon … I take it the same HTML codes apply?

  3. Less cluttered? It looks more cluttered to me.. Too much down the right hand side, especially

    • Thanks, Dave. I’m going to leave it as-is for a while and then decide on whether to re-arrange the sidebars.

    • Have to agree. The sidebars seem to almost dominate the page now.
      (Of course, climate change is probably to blame)


    OK ..Happened to not like the black text involved with live blog roll, tag cloud numbers etc and ended up leaving with out a comment, then on searching Obama’s speech on The White House site came across an ideal substitute colour for your carbon black text….. Looks a reddish brown. Change and you will instantly reduce your black footprint…..LOL

    PS any chance of an OZ spell checker (color)

  5. Propaganda is clutter ; Truth and facts are ; yes what they are ; it is strange how that is called clutter these days .

  6. You are doing very well , so keep on , and dispatching dissenters Ideas , Facts must yeald to Ideas , and that is the diference in propaganda . Remove the obvious clutter and keep the facts and truth.

  7. Simon i did prefer the old way but will try to get used to the new site.

  8. Mervyn Sullivan says:

    The new look is great!

  9. Great new look; very clean. All you need to do now is wipe the bat shit off my screen … Ban Ki-moon: clueless on climate.

  10. I love it. I have needed a good laugh and this site is exactly what the doctor ordered. Keep up the good work. I have already passed the link on to a few friends.

  11. Bryan Harris says:

    New layout is quite nice and clean, but having two columns to the right distracts from the main item. Be better if there was one column to the right, taking up less than two thirds of what is used now to give the news item more impact.

  12. Vince Schultz says:

    Its good.. but why change?

  13. Looks peachy-keen and jimdandy now you’ve separated the columns.

  14. Well done Simon.
    Good , clean easy to read.
