RTFOPost? Still a couple of weeks before it's fully implemented and then some to tweak based on feedback. Nothing left to do but wait, I guess.
Also, Spike is best pony.
Trust me, it was difficult to get rid of some of the components of the site that have been there for 10 years (like the rotating gaming graphics) but it was time for a change. The more dynamic content that has to load or change with every page refresh, the more stress it puts on the servers, the more it takes away from the actual content area (as your eyes are focused more on what changed in the header area) and the more it slows down the overall experience. The site is already running almost 100% faster and consuming way less bandwidth (and server resources) than before the change. It also means that we don't have to spend time making top graphics and can spend that time on more important things.
Regarding the Trainer Manager, this will also be overhauled slightly, but mostly for appearance. Same for the trainers.
