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.

I'd like to use this thread to let all the liters know that Totalfark is a non-stop orgy of booze and tits. And also a great place to get a mind-bending yet tender introduction to pegging.

And it will be that way no matter what happens to the Showbiz tab.

I designed a custom webpage that queries fark.com for the headlines, articles, and comments, and then displays them in the current format. Sure it took 300 hours of programming, I lost my job, my girlfriend, and I now live in a cardboard box behind a starbucks that I steal wifi from, but I think it was worth it.

2011-06-01 04:57:46 PM
I can't believe I'm about to spend an hour writing this. I've been here at Fark for five years...please just take five minutes to read it.

I'd like to start off by saying that I support Drew and his ability to make money from his brainchild. This is his baby, and ultimately this is his sandbox we've all been playing in. If he wants to get some ads on the front page so he can, I don't know, start actually paying his legion of volunteer workers, I'm for it. I've paid a couple hundred bucks over the last few years, and was willing to continue to support Fark and bring more people into the Totalfark fold.

I really don't care all that much about the technical upgrades/changes/downgrades made to Totalfark. I have 100% confidence that the mods and admins will take specific criticism about specific issues and bugs and fix them one-by-one. (Hell, that damn headline hover-highlight crap is already gone for me. Nice!) I'm guessing that in two weeks' time, the place will be running pretty smoothly. And hell, the Farky/Farkit peoples are working hard at making patches to get FarkClassic back.


I'm ticked off about the way this was all done, with little or no input from the site's most frequent users. I'm embarassed to type this, but Slashdot did this far better than Fark did. They gave warning, asked for input, and made their long-time members feel like they were part of the new future of Slashdot.

Fark could've done this. Fark should have done this. shiat, this is one of most tight-knit communities on the web. It could've been one of the coolest things in the site's history. The kind of thing that makes Farkers want to tell their friends about Fark and Totalfark. I've introduced or sponsored at least twenty people to Fark/Totalfark over the last five years, and it's not because of all the great news links--it's because of the community. Most of us TotalFarkers spend at least half-an-hour per workday here; some of the heavier users (not a fatty joke) spend a couple hours or more. Take that over a few years and there's a lot of time invested in this place for a lot of Farkers. I completely understand the passionate responses that we've seen over the last 24 hours.

So when we hit F5 at 5pm on a random Wednesday and see a new, sorta-hard-on-the-eyes, slow-running site, we all yell "WTF" at the top of our internet lungs. Not necessarily about the technical aspects, but that something this massive could happen without most of us knowing anything about its arrival.

And then came the four words from Jeff that shocked the hell out of a lot of us old-timers.

Really? That's the attitude? I don't blame the people who cancelled their accounts in disgust. Think about how we found out about all of this:

1st: hitting refresh, saying "wha?"

2nd: a barebones post saying "send this stuff to Mike, this stuff to Jeff, this to Drew. Bye, we're drinking."

3rd: "You'll get over it."

4th: "You all whined the last three times we did this."

5th: "We're suspending Jeff's April pay. Oh yeah, he doesn't get paid. Snark snark snark."

No warning. No explanation. No heads-up. Just a "this is how it's gonna be, and you're gonna like it."

I can't believe that this would be the attitude taken by the Fark powers-that-be, especially considering that there are many other options and Fark-like sites around nowadays. If this redesign was indeed done to ultimately make more money, then Fark showed horrible business savvy in their decision process. I've read the first chapter of Drew's book, and I was planning on buying it. I can't believe he could be so intelligent in his media criticism yet himself do something so short-sighted. (And I even like Fark TV, so I'm not just Drew-bashing.)

I'd have to say the worst thing I've seen from all this is the specific people that I've seen posting negative comments about the redesign and the modmin (well, mostly Jeff) attitude. Go through some of those initial firestorm threads and check the account numbers of the negative commenters. The people who have been here for years are mostly irked about this. Four- and five-digit accounts are against this by a landslide. (And since this is Fark, the instant counter-action to that is a rash of 250,000-and-up accounts typing "Good. We don't need you anymore. Get out.")

Well, it should matter to the newer Farkers that a bunch of long-time Farkers just cancelled their TF accounts. It should matter to you that a lot of people who have been here since before Totalfark existed are ticked off. These are the people who have supported Fark and Totalfark through a lot of shiat. If this happened in any other business or community, you'd have to think something was screwy.

If you don't get the same community feel from TF as we do, then maybe you'll never understand. I was like that for my couple of months here, too.

But then I got to know a lot of people who shared the same sense of humor as me. I got exposed to people who I'd never meet in my day-to-day life, exchanging ideas and advice--intelligently or not--in ways I'd never been a part of before. I was here for the 9/11 anniversary thread. I was here for "I saw a turtle". I was here for the Columbia disaster. I was here when the Iraq war started. I was here when the Paris Hilton sex tape leaked. I was here for the 2004 presidential election. I was here when the "24" threads started. I was here when my ex dumped me and I wanted to kill myself. And I found people who made me laugh, made me think, made me pissed-off and made me feel good.

And part of the entire draw of Fark, part of the reason why we came here instead of SomethingAwful or Digg or anywhere else, was that we thought the guys in charge were "just like us". shiat, do you remember all of the Dr. Pepper stuff? Drew didn't have to ask for our blessing. He did because he friggin' cared. And that felt awesome. That made me want to tell other people about Fark. That made me want to spend 50 bucks a year on TF. That made me feel good about sponsoring a whole bunch of liters to TF.

All of this happening, and the way that it has happened, even how Fark/Totalfark looks so much like sooo many other webtwodotzero sites...it really has lessened that feeling of community. Not necessarily with my fellow Farkers (especially Chicago. Woo.), but more with the people at the top.

Again, I think the technical aspects of the redesign will work out just fine. I just want to know if we still matter to the people at the top here, even just a little bit. I want to know why this was done, because Drew's silence is deafening on all of this. I still want to love this place. My recurring ends in June 2011, so I'll be here for a while. Please, guys and girls in charge, do something to make this right. Make us feel like we're part of the future of Fark, not like we're random IP addresses generating page views and click-throughs for Drew, Inc.

tuffsnake: I can't believe I'm about to spend an hour writing this. I've been here at Fark for five years...please just take five minutes to read it.

I'd like to start off by saying that I support Drew and his ability to make money from his brainchild. This is his baby, and ultimately this is his sandbox we've all been playing in. If he wants to get some ads on the front page so he can, I don't know, start actually paying his legion of volunteer workers, I'm for it. I've paid a couple hundred bucks over the last few years, and was willing to continue to support Fark and bring more people into the Totalfark fold.

I really don't care all that much about the technical upgrades/changes/downgrades made to Totalfark. I have 100% confidence that the mods and admins will take specific criticism about specific issues and bugs and fix them one-by-one. (Hell, that damn headline hover-highlight crap is already gone for me. Nice!) I'm guessing that in two weeks' time, the place will be running pretty smoothly. And hell, the Farky/Farkit peoples are working hard at making patches to get FarkClassic back.


I'm ticked off about the way this was all done, with little or no input from the site's most frequent users. I'm embarassed to type this, but Slashdot did this far better than Fark did. They gave warning, asked for input, and made their long-time members feel like they were part of the new future of Slashdot.

Fark could've done this. Fark should have done this. shiat, this is one of most tight-knit communities on the web. It could've been one of the coolest things in the site's history. The kind of thing that makes Farkers want to tell their friends about Fark and Totalfark. I've introduced or sponsored at least twenty people to Fark/Totalfark over the last five years, and it's not because of all the great news links--it's because of the community. Most of us TotalFarkers spend at least half-an-hour per workday here; some of the heavier users (not a fatty joke) spend a couple hours or more. Take that over a few years and there's a lot of time invested in this place for a lot of Farkers. I completely understand the passionate responses that we've seen over the last 24 hours.

So when we hit F5 at 5pm on a random Wednesday and see a new, sorta-hard-on-the-eyes, slow-running site, we all yell "WTF" at the top of our internet lungs. Not necessarily about the technical aspects, but that something this massive could happen without most of us knowing anything about its arrival.

And then came the four words from Jeff that shocked the hell out of a lot of us old-timers.

Really? That's the attitude? I don't blame the people who cancelled their accounts in disgust. Think about how we found out about all of this:

1st: hitting refresh, saying "wha?"

2nd: a barebones post saying "send this stuff to Mike, this stuff to Jeff, this to Drew. Bye, we're drinking."

3rd: "You'll get over it."

4th: "You all whined the last three times we did this."

5th: "We're suspending Jeff's April pay. Oh yeah, he doesn't get paid. Snark snark snark."

No warning. No explanation. No heads-up. Just a "this is how it's gonna be, and you're gonna like it."

I can't believe that this would be the attitude taken by the Fark powers-that-be, especially considering that there are many other options and Fark-like sites around nowadays. If this redesign was indeed done to ultimately make more money, then Fark showed horrible business savvy in their decision process.

(And I even like Fark TV, so I'm not just Drew-bashing.)

I'd have to say the worst thing I've seen from all this is the specific people that I've seen posting negative comments about the redesign and the modmin (well, mostly Jeff) attitude. Go through some of those initial firestorm threads and check the account numbers of the negative commenters. The people who have been here for years are mostly irked about this. Four- and five-dig ...

2011-06-01 05:07:35 PM
It's.... marginally better. The ugliest part (post headings, IMHO) goes unchanged.

Also on the "Previewing comment.." page, margins on the sides of the bold blue text are non-existent and this looks awful.

Shrink it back to the previous size/font. This new stuff is crap.

And can we have a FARK redesign that puts the threads back in the center of the screen?

This hugging-one-side crap is garbage.

Do you guys actually give a shiat what the paying TF'ers think? Or is it just revenue for you, so they can go fark themselves?
 
2011-06-01 05:22:19 PM
Wow. This is the second major Fark overhaul in a row that actually makes it look OLDER.

And the comment-box font is making my eyes bleed.

Yeah, "we'll get over it". But geez...it's like Fark keeps trying to improve its looks by shooting itself in the face with a shotgun.

Aside from being dull and relatively colorless and taking the fonts up a notch or two so I can't see as many stories (thanks, ctrl-shift-minus!), it's not bad.

But why mess with the layout at all? Were there complaints from users about the tabs being too colorful or the font being too small or something?

2011-06-01 05:34:26 PM
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.

how HARD would it be to change back?

against the link if they should kill the designers and revert the font

Top submitters/links/comments should transition to the redesign soon. We rebuild those pages once a day, so I just have to force it to go do it now instead of later tonight.

Music news should get submitted to Entertainment. Music videos should be submitted to Video.

Honestly this is my only real problem with the redesign. The "main" font is a bit too big and the vertical spacing between lines is WAY too big.

You went full retard, man. Never go full retard. You don't buy that? Ask Drew Curtis, 2011, Fark Redesign, Remember? Went full retard, went home empty handed...

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?

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.

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

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....

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.

jennies1897 - 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.



Drew's not going to sleep with you.

Or maybe he will, I don't know. But it probably won't be 'cause you sucked up to him in some thread.

Meh, getting rid of the music tab so that He Who Shall Not Be Named doesn't post as much seems like cutting off your nose to spite your face. So music topics are in one thread and music videos celebrating the birth/death of a musician or the release of a great album are in video. Oh, that makes sense. [insert 2 million eye rolling emoticons here]

I honestly don't care so much about the column spacing, to be honest.

The font has to go, though. Bring back the old one. Also, kill this ridiculous over-large line spacing.

And I say this in all honestly, I'm really glad I didn't re-up my TF like was very seriously contemplating this morning. My eyes are already fatigued just from this thread.

Though I do have to say that I find it hilarious that all these changes were made, and the way that quoted text is displayed is the same as it has been since 1999.

It shall cause me no great consternation, or gnashing of teeth.
I've been spending the last couple of days, reformatting my work station, and if I can handle going from Photoshop7, to Adobe CS 5, as well as different versions of damned near every other program I use, so as long as I'm in the middle of a learning curve, why not?


I kind of LIKE the gray. It makes the graphics and photos stand out better.
If I want to see a site that looks like someone vomited on a Gypsy wedding dress, I'll go to MySpace.

It's not even a "learning curve".

If you have a problem with the new design, then you are using the wrong brand of computer, or operating system.

Go to Best Buy, and ask specifically for an Etch-A-SketchTM laptop.

The Geek Squad will be more than glad to reformat it for you, and sell you anti-virus software for it..

The tab title font seems . . . odd. But otherwise, I am much less "fffffuuuuuuu" over this redesign than the last one. Zooming out one click (83% incase the modmins care) makes it look more right.

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 piece (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.


FTFM

But it'll be double-fun when Drew occasionally makes the news, and darn-it, we'll have to mock him. (whereas now I just do it for sport when he whines too much)

Also, did liters always have a TotalFark link? What is the point of putting a link at the top of every page that gives me a 403 Forbidden error? That's just dumb design, right there. I don't care who you are.

Aside from the music tab being generally awful for actual music discussion, there was frequently a load of crossover with showbiz, and often with videos, too. It's better rolled into the others.

Not like people did anything other than post "Suchandsuch band sux!' anyway.
