    I was just wondering if the site is due for a makeover soon, perhaps a Metro Makeover to match with the whole Windows ecosystem.

    It's at times like this, when I start becoming giggly over a website makeover, that I really do feel like I need to venture out the front door more. Nah :D

    I thought we weren't supposed to use the term "metro" any more

    So, they are going to Windows 8-style" the site!

    I still can't believe how any one can trademark the word Metro.

    Hopefully MS comes up with something else to replace it. Windows 8 Style UI doesn't quite have the same ring to it.

    Actually the Passenger Transport Executive in West Yorkshire is called Metro. the light rail service in Newcastle is also called Metro. in Manchester it's called the Manchester MetroTram... etc. Are they all gonna get sued too?

    There is also a cellphone provider called MetroPCS in some regions of the US.

    Let's not also forget the Metro Newspaper, Metro Radio, and Metro Bank Online

    I know it's not good to rush things, but any estimate now on when the site will get a remake? I'm really looking forward to a fresher and cleaner website UI. Let's get the love with WP8 on the horizon.

    Keep up your great work!

    There are some interesting ideas in there Danny. If a Windows 8 app comes to fruition I may use a couple of them assuming I have your permission?

    that's true of the current design. In fact the very first WPCentral app concept was using these colours over the current background.


    But things are going to change

    No need for a teaser, teasers are for when things are a while away

    Hey guys. He's a Windows 8 optimised App. By the way. I do web designing in school. So I know about layouts. for the friends list. they are actually live tiles. they show info about their name and who many messages you got from them.
