It is coming! Things will be a little different. Change is good. We have come a long way from 2006:

All the changes are wonderful! The only thing I miss is seeing the riffmeter at a glance without having to click on the title. But I can now actually rate movies.(I couldn't on the old site.) I gave out a lot of long overdue 10s today! Speaking of tens, I like that the meter goes to ten now. It just feels right. Category view is great. It was fun to click on horror just to see what would come up. (Birdemic?! HA!) Everything is so organized. I'm delighted to see it working on my phone. Now I have something to do at work. (I'm a bus driver.(O.K.  I'm not)) I could go on about all the pretty pretty changes...so I will. The collection sections are great, love the banners.(That wolf has toast in its mouth!) I'll be forever grateful that Rifftrax taught me my 16 digit credit card number, knowing it by heart might come in handy one day, but I'm really glad I can just save it now. I hate waiting whole seconds for the new rifftrax. That reminds me, library streaming commentary is a nice touch. I look forward to all the upcoming changes, like the ability to upgrade to HD and the new iriff section. Keep up the amazing work, everybody!

What does the new logo on the front page mean?

A Saturn-like planet made out of a microphone and frames of film, representing the merging of a movie with recorded commentary.  What else are you expecting?

I think it's odd to see Mike Nelson's name plastered all over it. I get that he's the creater of it, and now the owner. But they didn't call it Joel Hodgson's Cinematic Titanic.

You mean the new site, or the screenshot of the original one that MrTorso posted up top?  I don't see Mike plastered anywhere on the new site.

I got it when Rifftrax was new, because it was a new concept and at that point he was the only permanent fixture with name recognition.  Even when Kevin and Bill started showing up, they weren't on every track.

I like the new logo. It gives off a bit of the 'ol MST3K vibe, while still being its own thing, and communicates exactly what Rifftrax does. The bomb logo was cool. It implied that Rifftrax destroys bad movies, and maaaaan does it ever, but more than destroying turkeys, Rifftrax makes bad movies great! Riffing is a wonderful form of art, its more than just being negative or mean. Although I like those part too. I love Rifftrax and if I ever want to express that by getting a Rifftrax tattoo* (like Mike on the Over the Top cover) or maybe just a T-shit or coffee mug, I think the new logo would look great. It would also get me through security check points faster than the old one.

*next to a certain bone shaped satellite, a couple of bots, the Mads, Torgo, Rowsdo...OK, I need pen and paper right now.

I have no problem with the new logo. I didn't realize that was a microphone. Thanks to RoninFox, confusion resolved.

Oh, I didn't even read that part, I didn't realize it was the original site (it's been so long).

can we get a "stuff i don't own" filter?

also, i really dislike the infinity-length-always-loading pages.

That is something I wish could be an option to turn on and off.
