Civil_War2_Time: I'd be willing to give my $5 again if you can cater to the mainstream, instead of the wacko-liberal northeast. No wonder you're aligned with ESPN. Are the Redsoxpinstripeyanks on tonight?


Maybe I can help.

UCONN SUCKS!

Does not work with IE9 or IE for WP7

A great thing is that the tags are again visible to those blind farkers like me who have our monitors inverted. (white on black)
 
2011-05-26 09:38:45 PM  
Does anyone else think the headlines are way too spaced apart? Sorry if i'm complaining a lot.
 
2011-05-26 09:38:59 PM  
Too wide for me. Shrinking the font helps. ctrl-scrolly wheel for great justice!

It should. Are you having problems? If so, send in a Farkback and we'll take a look. There's no way to send screenshots through Farkback, so you can email them to m­eg­[nospam-﹫-backwards]kraf­*c­om, or just wait until I reply to the Farkback and you can reply to that one with attachments.

offacue: Here's what I don't understand, just like the new phones we got at the office today. The old ones worked fine. They did everything they were supposed to do . Make calls, transfer calls, retrieve messages, forward calls, leave messages, caller ID, etc. They worked just fine yesterday. Today, all the old phones were in a forlorn pile and new phones were on our desks. The new phones don't do anything new and exciting, as if there was anything exciting a new phone could do. Everybody has a new phone number that no one knows yet, voicemail keys and passwords are different, outgoing messages need to be rerecorded, the clock/date graphic is smaller, etc. Why? Why? Why?. Everything worked just fine like ti did. Change for the sake of change seems nonproductive to me. The only advantage to getting the new phones is now I get a .wav file of voicemails in my email. While on the outset this seems to me to be just another email to delete, the .wav files will prove to provide hours of amusement with a little audacity editing.


Sounds like the morning I arrived and we all had new 'Cisco' phones. I miss my old NEC.

Is this a joke or something? I opened it in FF and Chrome, and it looks exactly the same.
 
2011-05-26 09:40:59 PM  
Q: What sort of screen resolution is this designed for?
 
2011-05-26 09:41:34 PM  
"Real news. Real funny."?

Really? I mean 'real funny'? I don't know about that. 'Real' seems a bit much. Or maybe it's the word 'funny'. Amusing might work better. Real news. Real amusing. That sounds about right. I'd say this site is really amusing.
 
2011-05-26 09:41:37 PM  
It looks awfully grey.

And my fonts are wimpy...
 
2011-05-26 09:41:40 PM  
It's uglier and takes longer to load. Yay!
 
2011-05-26 09:41:52 PM  
Wow. It's actually decent. did not expect that. My only gripe is that geek comes before business now.
 
2011-05-26 09:41:55 PM  
It still looks gay

Folding the Music tab into Entertainment sucks because I don't want to wade through a bunch of farking reality show gossip. Other than that I think it looks pretty good.
 
2011-05-26 09:43:26 PM  
I've been over it. I started using the new design as soon as it was available to TFers ...
 
2011-05-26 09:43:42 PM  
Anyone know if there's going to be updates to farky/farkit?

As an Aggie grad, I totally agree for at least the next 4-5 more months.

Click the "article link" for this thread, or click the "Try out new Fark" link on the right-hand side. If it still looks the same, let me know

Jeff, Chapter 12

4 When The Book of Fark transferred from the Old Testicles to the New Testicles,
5 Drew's followers were much enraged by Drew's changes.
6 There was much crying in the streets and gnashing of teeth, and to Drew did the people cry "Why have you besmirched us!"
7 And Lo, did Drew hear the plight of his people, and he gathered his loyal servants before him, declaring
8 "See to it that they are appeased, or at the least silenced, for I am enjoying Thine Holy Heineken, and wish not to be disturbed."
9 Therefore did Jeff exit from the most majestic of quarters, and to the people he raised his hand.
10 And the people did silence, awaiting the word of Drew's Servant, a bearer of peace and assistance.
11 Once no voice stirred, Jeff spoke to the people, and did say thus:
12 "You'll get over it."
13 And everything farking exploded, man.

Looks good, except for the particular comment font. Still curious as to how I can monetize the SEO of my greenlit link stream.

That was beautiful.

I think it's cool, we needed a change.
 
2011-05-26 09:49:52 PM  
A third of the page (the entire right side) is devoted to ads? Weak.

Much better than the ".mobi" upgrade, however. That was (is) horrific...

Been using it for a couple of weeks now. No problems - I got over it. I like it better, in fact.

This is quite a bit better than the beta version of the last redesign. (Not for nothing, but the modmin response to us users -- yes, even cheapskate liters like me -- is much better as well. Yay, people skills! Kudos, meg.)

I come to Fark for content and comments, and as long as readability and navigation is not compromised, I couldn't care less about its aesthetic appeal. Taking that into consideration, I think that this new design succeeds. I also tend to tile my Fark window with a second one so I can watch Hulu, TDS, Conan, etc. while I'm browsing this site. I dig how the content container autoadjusts to wrap the text so I don't have to scroll left or right.

In short, I can get used to this change a lot quicker than the last one. Are there any plans to change the mobile version to match?
 
2011-05-26 09:53:38 PM  
I miss the tab colors.
 
2011-05-26 09:53:59 PM  
I really like it, making everything a bit simpler and looking more modern.

zactly. Cisco. crashed twice today bringing down the network. Spectacular. But they're new, and better 'cause they're different.
 
2011-05-26 09:54:51 PM  
Don't tell me - "Change we can believe in", right Drew???

Also, I noticed that the FONTS are BIGGER in the text that I am now typing.

Does that mean you think that we're a bunch of OLD FARKERS. DREW?!?!?!

Goddamn young whippersnappers and their newfangled shenanigans...

GET OFF MY FARK!
 
2011-05-26 09:55:36 PM  
The last change, anyone remember? Some people biatched and some said cool. We fark and we adapt.

You'll get over it!
 
2011-05-26 09:55:41 PM  
Gray.
Backed with gray.
With a dark gray banner.
Light blue to blend with the gray.
More Gray.

Gray.

Feeling depressed? Try prescription Zoloft, Paxil, or Prozac.

I feel like someone phoned in the color-palette work. If you're going to take on something like black or gray, you have to do it astoundingly well or it will look cheap.
 
2011-05-26 09:55:47 PM  
Ok, on the music tab being gone, it just proved my theory even more

img.photobucket.com

and as for the dumb gray textured background, no more color-coded tabs, and a switch to a really ugly font that does in fact leave more white space everywhere and is bigger than the previous one....

I'll take the sage advice we were given in 2007:

Kudos (and blame) all go to JoeThePeacock/pattonx who designed it. But especially kudos.
 
2011-05-26 09:56:48 PM  
Hmm.. I can see the changes in ff4, but not in chrome or IE9.
Not had a look to see if the changes work on FF or Chromium on my ubuntu machine...

However, I do like it. More teeth, less hair! Agree on the 'too much grey' and reminds me of when John Major was our PM.

Good so far though!
 
2011-05-26 09:57:27 PM  
Wow you have banished color from your world and added more white. So grey, white, blue and more grey. Do colors cost more money to use? OR it is just that none of the designers have updated color monitors? OR is it to show off the ADS more?

/too much white space
