I still can't find the farking "out the submitter" button, and I've been looking for a whole freakin' week, goddamnit.

I like the lack of avatars and sigs. While they can be fun, the lack of them prevents idiots and assholes from being really farking annoying with them, which gives more weight to the comments themselves. Faster to load, easier to read, focus on the conversation itself. It's fark. It would lose something if it tried to be a more normal board.

As for my thoughts on the redesign, tabs need to come back. I don't care if they're colored or not, but they need to be tabs instead of just random links floating out in space. Keeps things cohesive.

And I'm undecided on the spacing, but I'll probably get used to it. All I can really say is that it's different, and change is uncomfortable. I was certainly never bothered by the extra space in the previous design.

CoRrUpTeDbUdGiE: 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!


On any new browser, you'll have to click the link on the right side to "Try out new Fark". That, or just Click here.

It's different?


I suppose ADHD has its benefits.
 
2011-05-26 10:05:15 PM
Another thought on tabs: even if you just change the little pointy arrow to a single tab encompassing the corresponding link floating in nothingness instead of pointing to it, you would get a pretty decent improvement.

It's very gray. It suits my mood.

Looks less like ass, tastes more like chicken.
 
2011-05-26 10:07:46 PM

meg: EchoMike: 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.)


Kudos (and blame) all go to JoeThePeacock/pattonx who designed it. But especially kudos.


Well, that too, but I was also talking about you. Good customer service goes a long way. (Not trying to suck up to the mods and admins. I'm just letting you know it's appreciated.) Cheers!

I've already gotten over it.

It's June 1st already where I am.

2011-05-26 10:11:19 PM
OK, proceed.
 
2011-05-26 10:11:25 PM
Awesome. Now if the new mobile site would just let me see tags other than just "video", I would be a happy camper.
 
2011-05-26 10:11:55 PM

sparty: 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...


Really? I find the new mobile version a lot more usable on my phones than the old one was. It's much more finger friendly.
 
2011-05-26 10:12:03 PM
Fark needs to follow twitter's lead and make their login page a ripoff of the main page for facebook. that would be classy.

Hopefully, people will be smart enough to post music performances in the 'video' tab instead of entertainment, where they'll get lost in the shuffle (and be out of place anyhow).

sn82: HawgWild: I've been over it. I started using the new design as soon as it was available to TFers ...

You and your fancy TF abilities make me sick :P


Don't make me sponsor you ...

I know it's already been said, but I'm already over it. (Actually... I mostly prefer this.)

And it will never happen, but I prefer threaded comments over gigantic list.

/was upset at the last redesign.

Farker T: 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!



I hope it looks better on my Blackberry, because it's been making me blind.

I don't like the combined showbiz and music business. I don't want to wade through a bunch of reality TV BS to get to the music news. TV is dumb. I wont leave or anything, but I will be mildly irritated for a while until I get over it. BE WARNED!
 
2011-05-26 10:15:38 PM
Not crazy about where the "ALL latest links" is located.
 
2011-05-26 10:15:44 PM
I appreciate the bigger ad space on the right.
 
2011-05-26 10:15:47 PM
I'm not mad about the right column's typography. The leading could be adjusted and there could be a lot fewer font sizes used; having five different font sizes in such close proximity is messy.

You could do something like getting rid of the text in the Like Fark, Twitter and RSS as I think that most people know what those icons mean. In fact just presenting those as buttons with no text would probably solve the problem.

/Can I come on your tits now?
 
2011-05-26 10:15:58 PM
Like it, already got over it. FWIW

using a stock browser on a froyo filled (android 2.2) Fascinate, the css doesnt change at all...just looks like regular old chicklet filled fark...
 
2011-05-26 10:18:21 PM
Been using the new design for about a week. Have given mucho feedbacko. Mostly OK with it, but the flavorless "tabs" need to go. Terrible, boring and wholly generic UI choice.
 
2011-05-26 10:19:11 PM
Meh.
 
2011-05-26 10:19:26 PM

is this bad?

/better than what you have now
//thanks, uncle FARK!
 
2011-05-26 10:19:43 PM
I don't like it.

The nacelles are too weirdly shaped.

The ship itself is too squat.

The bridge looks like an Apple store.

Oh, wait...
 
2011-05-26 10:20:01 PM
I say screw the IE users - the old font looked better. Tell 'em to download a real web browser like Firefox.

The new background image is nice. I do agree that the new design is less colorful, though... as if you wanted to make the site a bit less attractive.
 
2011-05-26 10:20:49 PM

Looks like my handle just got obsoleted.

I've seen it already, and I'm already over it.
 
2011-05-26 10:24:01 PM
For whatever reason, this new font hurts my eyes. It's taller, but less wide. I feel like I need to sit further away, then squint.

But I'm the kind of person who resets everything to the smallest, cleanest design possible. If there was a way to make font and size user controllable?

/On preview it switched back to the old font. It's so much more readable for me.
 
2011-05-26 10:24:47 PM
...this, I like.

Honestly, thank you for the heads-up. Coming daily and seeing a massive change with no prior warning was always a big ugh...so now to get used to this. I hate change.../sigh. Oh well, getting over it, but no complaints so far...

I would take that as a challenge, except for the fact that I'm too cheap to even buy it for myself. I did try it once, but it ended right as life was picking up a bit and I had less time for fark, so I just let it expire. Haven't been motivated enough to join back up since.

I don't really care all that much. Giantbomb just updated their site in the same vain as this redesign. Blocky, sharp and "modern". Don't care for it but change happens I'll get over it like I got over the last one. Although, that last one was pretty awful at the get-go, hopefully this one won't be as bad.

Wish there is a way to set the skin for fark. Like pick your era thing. i.e. 1999.fark.com or 2005.fark.com I'd go with something two or three change ago. I liked that one.
 
2011-05-26 10:34:42 PM

Hey, who knows. Maybe they'll branch out and take something other than paypal for total fark.

This is non negotiable. This button must be in, either in or immediately under the comment box.
