Meg or Unfreakable How many different slogans are there? I don't know how many times I should sit here and refresh, or if it's endless, like derp in a TFD thread.

FunkOut: The text is massive. This is good because I've been thinking that it would be fun for my husband to read all the embarrassing stories I tell about him while he sits on the couch 8 feet away.

Hey honey, I'm going to tell them about the time you got really drunk when we went camping and wore a sweater for a pair of pants while singing Pink Floyd songs, okay?


I got as far as the photo of you in your cheat t-shirt and pretty much lost my mind.
wait, is that you, or just some random photo of the cheat?

What exactly is it that I am supposed to be marvelling at as being better than the previous incarnation of Fark?

I mean, really. How is this any better? You got rid of differing colours to distinguish the tabs, and what else exactly? Everything looks a bit thinner, but most Farkers still sound fat anyway.

/How much did having the "Sports" tab be a different colour from the "Geek" tab cost Drew per week, anyway?

That's better, now that I've got the page zoomed out twice. I can read a whole page of text in a few seconds; I'd have to scroll my finger off to get the page to move fast enough for me to read at a comfortable speed.

Unfreakable: Howdy everybody, just a heads-up that the Great Fark Ruination of 2011 will be going live at 5PM EST tonight. For those of you that missed the three previous threads on February 24, May 26, or yesterday's thread and haven't noticed the link offering you a sneak peek for the last week, this is it.

We're still dealing with a lot of input. We're looking at all of it and where the dev team agrees with a proposed change, we're doing it, but even if certain tweaks haven't been made as of the time the redesign goes live, that doesn't mean that it may not show up in the future. Things continue to be tweaked all the time and that won't stop.

For everybody that's given feedback, thank you. We've found some things thanks to you and have made some tweaks to make this more palatable. If we haven't responded yet, it just means we haven't been able to get to it yet (we've had far more feedback than we've been able to address quickly).

Most of you have already seen the design and have said your peace (either in the threads or with direct feedback), so this thread might seem like one too many, but some people aren't on Fark daily and may be seeing this for the first time-this thread is really for them.



Here's some feedback for you: This design sucks.

But what the fark am I supposed to do without colored tabs?

What?

m1ke: I feel like "Tears in Heaven" should be playing right now....


Because the some of the basic tenets of web design just went straight out the window?
 
2011-06-01 05:58:36 PM
Uhhh... what's all the whining about font size? I am using IE7 and font size is fine. In fact, it looks a little smaller than usual. At least with the comments.

Shrugging Atlas: But what the fark am I supposed to do without colored tabs?


That's racist.
 
2011-06-01 05:59:08 PM
Hmm when I refresh it no longer jumps to the last post.. someone probably already said this.. but yeah probably missed in in the whole refreshing and scrolling through 500+ posts

namatad: IE 9

well there's your problem

tuffsnake: blah, blah, biatch, whine


You know what? Most people ARE just random IP's to Drew. Really. Seriously. You get enough people on a site and most of them ARE random IP's. Have you ever run a business that had thousands of customers and actually tried to follow up on each and every complaint? Drew would need to HIRE customer service reps, because no one would do that shiat for free. NO ONE.

As a customer service person, I can say I LOVE THE WAY THEY ROLLED IT OUT! You have no idea how many times a day someone like me would really like to outright call someone a farking moron and I can't. These guys can and do, and so maybe they'll lose their customers. Perhaps the Fark community will downgrade. Such is life. Business ebbs and flows like the tide.
 
2011-06-01 06:00:51 PM
Them tabs are not tabs anymore. That's my only poutrage.

Carry on.

Yes. I have this problem too.

It's slightly easier to read. But I can't say I love it...
 
2011-06-01 06:04:41 PM
I have another feature request (submitted to farkback, but I'll relay it here)

Can we have a submission form or farkback page to add our own tagline ideas/suggestions to that nifty rotating tagline thing under the main logo?

Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: wegro: I know this has been said before, but I'll go ahead and say it again: Why is the font so f*cking huge?

Heh, I saw that line and thought, uh oh, IE is doing that thing where it squishes text on top of other text sometimes...then I saw who the poster was.

shiat! Eastern time! I missed it.

I haz a sad.
 
2011-06-01 06:05:06 PM
Seriously, though, why change the font?!

I don't use Firefox because it makes the text look spidery as shiat. Is this what the young folks do these days as well as their hippin' and their hoppin' and their bippin' and their boppin'?

It looks like shiat, and it's harder to read.

ichiban: Man that text is ugly.


I agree. The font is fugly.
 
2011-06-01 06:05:32 PM
Wow...over 671 posts and only three favorited logins.

*ponders the significance*
 
2011-06-01 06:06:29 PM
My only question: what resolution was this optimized for? It really looks it was optimized for an iPad rather than your standard monitor these days(1680x1050+)
 
2011-06-01 06:07:06 PM
Hey Continue Farking is different. It take me longer to click now. sigh.
 
2011-06-01 06:07:22 PM
There is no amount of Ctrl-Mouse Wheeling that can make this ugly ass font any more readable. You reduce it some with the mouse wheel, it widens the comment area and brings down the font size to the older style, but then the pics that people post appear smaller. Go the other direction, the stupid sidebar swallows up the thread width.

Just can't win. Plus the stupid overuse of gray makes it a loser.

But you know what Fark says....

YOU WILL LIKE FARK 3.0, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY

Already changed here and, as i keep saying ... It looks good. No "music" tab kind of bites, though.
 
2011-06-01 06:08:06 PM
RIP MUSIC TAB

Everybody remembers their first website they design, regardless if it's good or bad. Pattonx should feel proud of himself!

I bought that shirt when they said they were going to discontinue it. Stopped wearing it when the design started to crack a little.

It is faster. Please withold any further stroking of Fark mod egos at this time. We're busy being *ssholes to them right now.
Thank you citizen.

CaptainWes: Can we have a submission form or farkback page to add our own tagline ideas/suggestions to that nifty rotating tagline thing under the main logo?

THAT is a great idea.

It would help to keep the site fresh, methinks.

Ain't I a stinker?

It didn't exactly get a lot of bites.

Bummed that Fark isn't the music place it was when I joined up. :\
