Surool: Larry King called,

He wants his ancient and busted map background back.


But he did say he loves the new easy to read font.

gunsmack: Drew has definitely been studying the training tapes.


I used to work for "Popcopy" in college. That skit was one of the best of many great things on that show.

tsalaroth: FTGodWin: Starry Heavens: The column for comments still too narrow with too big a font for my taste, but I'll deal.

/why does decreasing the font size with command-minus also decrease the column width? O.o

Better yet, why does increasing the font size with command-plus also decrease the column width, and vice-versa? That's just trippy.

In other news, Fark now remembers me. Fark likes me! Fark really likes me!

The column is probably set to an "em" size, which is relative to the font size, etc.


The thing is though, its inverse. larger font/smaller column

Spade: Where the fark is the "all" button to see the newest posts in all sections?

And whoever came up with "We don't make news. We mock it. " should be shot.


The "All" tag went away (very few people actually clicked it), but you can see the same page via the "All Latest" link on the right side.

there was a music tab?

news, geek, politics, video... nope, no music tab in my old fark either.

If I wanted Facebook I'd USE Facebook.
 
2011-06-01 05:29:36 PM  
Well, color me surprised....

I was wondering if they were going to add that elusive "Daily Mail" tab or "Sponsored by Contact Music" banner.

Just...meh.

ultraholland: Keep posting for tits. We can work out the redesign kinks later, but right now we need to focus on BIE. Priorities, people.


There is no BIE. There never has been. There never will be. Only the promise of BIE. They're all lying biatches.

The typeface does not work well for me, especially with the narrower space to deal with. It's ugly and confusing. Please do something about this.

On closer inspection, it appears something is screwed up in the HTML for the purple username bars in the comments section. Some have a black line above only, some have above and below, and some have below only.

Looks like a product of groupthink. Bland and boring. But I'm not gonna leave and never come back because of that.

Okay I'm getting older and you keep making stuff smaller and harder to read.

Why don't you love me like I love you?

So why the fark was the ability to jump to a quoted post from another post removed? That is kind of idiotic and backwards, in my not-so-humble opinion.

Are you serious? The text and spacing in this redesign is HUGE...
 
2011-06-01 05:34:11 PM  
Meh, not too shabby. Gonna take a day or two to get used to it, but it isn't even close to the major overhaul it was a number of years back.

okay i'm over it.


Damn...done in one...

I'll get over it..

Works fine for me.

Paris1127 - And it's changed. I wasn't around for the first change, so I can't really complain about how the previous version was better...


They improved it a lot over time, but right after the redesign it really sucked ass. HARD. It was literally painful to look at. The fonts. I can't remember all the particulars, but the worst thing was that the new fonts were smaller and hard to read, and the contrast between the text and the background was ridiculously high (like a white-white background and a black-black background) and after just a few minutes you'd have horrid eyestrain.

It's easy to be all "much ado about nothing" about it now, but they really donkey-farked the shiat out of it right it out of the gate. Pretty much all of it could have been avoided with some testing and feedback.

Then, Jeff's "you'll get over it" remark just came off like a huge "fark you" that pissed people off even worse.
 
2011-06-01 05:34:30 PM  
Was all of the extra spacing everywhere necessary? Seriously, I've seen less over-spacing of content on a geocities page with a dozen webrings on the bottom.
 
2011-06-01 05:34:46 PM  
so the real question is:
how HARD would it be to change back?
and, if it is HARD, why the fark would you design anything that wasnt easy to make changes to?

shuder

give us an option in setup?

Hmm, that's weird. After making that post, the ability appeared. What the fark.

Rumor has it the guys checking out Foobies were all mid fap when the change went down.

It was a really ugly scene when they all thought it was going pay service.

No music tab?

Now what tab will I never go to?
