Ctrl-Minus, Ctrl-Minus... good to go. Nice one, thanks.

While you're jerking around with stuff, it would be nice if the quote button preserved the strikeout tag.

Alternately, filter the damned strikeout tag out of comments altogether, and filter "FTFY" to "I wish I wrote your sentence."

I think it looks fantastic, but I am looking at it through Adblock, flashblock, noscript, and some greasemonkey scripts that completely prevent me from knowing what it is that you actually intend the site to look like, in favor of having it look like I want it to instead.

Font still sucks. Too squished horizontally, and stretched vertically. Too much white space, the number of headlines per screen goes way down. I sent in screen shots, Mike has the farkback ticket.

Other then that, it looks fine. I'll get over it.

dislikes: banner is 'meh',
font is too skinny. I like the old font better.

like: the comment box is much wider, similar to what it would be once posted on page.

WHOA WHOA WHOA

WHERE'S THE 'MUSIC' TAB?!?!


and less importantly, where's the 'video' tab?

don't tell me they've gone together into the entertainment tab....



/stupid font. puts the v, i, and d too close together in 'video'.
 
2011-05-27 12:24:42 AM  
Music Tab is for sucks.
 
2011-05-27 12:25:32 AM  
It would be better if the comments were presented as a slideshow

WHERE'S THE 'MUSIC' TAB?!?!




The music tab is being sent up to a nice, big farm in the country, where it can romp and play all day long.

But you can't go up and visit it.

I was over it before you got out of bed this morning.

/Saw it over by the paddocks.

I'm not wild about the new font...seems a little cramped on the eyes, somehow. In all fairness, though, I still sorta miss the design we were using just prior to the infamous "you'll get over it" debacle. (I got over it, obviously, but my preference remains.)

My only major issue is to echo that of others: where's the farking "Continue Farking" button? Hell, some of us actually use it...plus, it's practically a trademark. Put it back where it belongs, please.
 
2011-05-27 12:31:11 AM  
I think whoever is working the the typefaces should rethink his stances on what is a good typeface.
 
2011-05-27 12:32:58 AM  
It STILL sucks and I STILL hate you all and I'm STILL cancelling my TF unless you remove Starryeyes' mod privileges.
 
2011-05-27 12:34:11 AM  
It looks good enough from this end...but there are a ton more scripts running. Almost double. I am sure they are all there to help keep the look clean and simple though. Right?
 
2011-05-27 12:37:22 AM  
I miss the easy to click "All" tabs link and Myfark is a bit more annoying to locate.
 
2011-05-27 12:43:29 AM  
The FARK logo at the top of the page should be bigger...But otherwise...I guess i'll get over it...eventually.

awwwww :(

that was my favourite tab :(

This time I refuse to get over it.

meg: we made sure the visited link colors worked so you can tell when you've clicked on a thread

I just want to say THANK YOU for this, as it was may only big complaint. I really do appreciate it. Of course, with appreciation comes a bit of critique: while I do appreciate there now being a visited state, it could stand to have a little bit of color to it to make it stand out a little more. IMHO.

Also, I would appreciate if the side-bar links also had a visited state to make commonly used ones easier to pick out at a glance.

Otherwise, I've been using it without any complaints and overall I don't mind the new design at all. Good work. :)
 
2011-05-27 12:55:49 AM  
I think it's fine overall...

...but Futura > Myriad Pro. Every time.

I may not get over that. I like Futura.

I'm glad you don't care about race but nowadays we say "African-American" instead

//the new design is fine

Good show, chaps!

/Headline Search link?

More cramped and less attractive than the format already present on the site. Don't change.
 
2011-05-27 01:10:02 AM  
Agreed with comments about the logo. The pixel blending on the edges doesn't look right, it looks blurry. I'm not a fan of the spacing of the letters in the new logo either, it's too cramped.

The design looks slightly more modern, not a huge change from how it was before. Looks fine to me.
 
2011-05-27 01:11:14 AM  
Font is not as readable.
 
2011-05-27 01:21:36 AM  
I like it. I'm not a huge fan of all the different colored tabs at the top. The grey is much easier on the eyes.
 
2011-05-27 01:39:42 AM  
Not bad! even reminds me of old Fark. So would this be 2.1, or 2.2 ?

I don't care about boxes and colors. What I want for my TF ducats is:

* New tags. We've been begging for an Awesome tag forever.
* Timeliness. I'm tired of 6 hour backlogs
* Better article choice. I am amazed at the funny headlines passed over, irrelevant crap approved, and the same old stupid memes in headlines.
* A new section. Why do we have Music when we have Entertainment?
 
2011-05-27 01:49:00 AM  
1. Like it.

2. WHAR CONTINUE FARKING WHAR?

3. Tagline: "Real news. Really".
 
2011-05-27 02:02:55 AM  
We fear change.
 
2011-05-27 02:06:17 AM  
Too bright, hurts the eyes. Try making the color scheme easier on the eyes, other than that I like it
 
2011-05-27 02:11:38 AM  
Lotsa ad space, it seems.....

You and your fancy TF abilities make me sick :P

Don't make me sponsor you ...

Nobody can sponsor me. I'm on the naughty list...



What did you do?

I purposely told them to not have anybody sponsor me. One person tried and failed.

Oh wow. Just tried. You weren't kidding ...


I have my bank account setup so that it's impossible to wire me amounts in excess of 10 grand...

\Didn't know you could do that.

If someone wants to buy me some TF, maybe I'll stick around. Otherwise, I'll send my grandmother my redesigned UFIA joke as a reader's digest condensed version of the internet.

See! Plus I'm too busy to be TFing, so no big deal. Wouldn't want anybody to waste their money if I'm not around much.

:(

Why are you frowning?


Will you two just get a room please? Seesh.

OK,

Why the world background?
/surely there are farkers who can help out Drew on his design.

While your at it farkers, redesign the FARK logo.

/the site looks like Windows 98.
//Drew, call Jason Kottke for help.

I'm having the same problem as Coco LaFemme with scrolling the webpage up/down, it's SLOW!

/Firefox 3.6.17
//java enabled
///otherwise it's okay and I'll get over it, maybe...

Terrible
 
2011-05-27 04:24:07 AM  
Tho it may not matter, I must weigh in. Been vacillating between the old and new designs: Obviously I'm partial to the older, I know it, it's familiar. It's a 'tight' design; slim, concise, navigable and familiar.
On the new design: Not so sure. It is easier to read and less 'busy' but it looks a bit.... Beta. I HATE knocking this site because I love it but I have to say it looks every bit the rush job and this comes from someone who hates run-on sentences.
Pretty good idea to combine the music and showbiz links but overall it just looks rushed to me.
I would've loved to give it 5 stars.
Just can't do it.
I'm sure I'll get over it.
If they're serving beer in hell I hope Drew's behind the bar,

Functioning fine. No problem with the new font & colors.

Used the new design normally and while pooping. We'll see how it goes later on tonight while I'm drinking. And later than that when I'm drunk and pooping.
 
2011-05-27 04:38:01 AM  
Meh.

Aside from the lack of a music tab, I can live with it. we'll see if I have to change my adblock settings after it is live.
 
2011-05-27 04:38:05 AM  
Too much grey!
 
2011-05-27 04:40:32 AM  
I like the new fonts. Everything else seems grey, colorless, and dull.
