Everything sucks now. It sucks less now and It sucked more before, but it still sucks.

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.

That's kind of what I was thinking too. I haven't actually opened it on my phone, but I bet it looks better on there than on my computer. I bet this was crafted as a middle ground between mobile and desktop.

Oh FFS, you've not only removed the music tab and made all of the other tabs look the same, there is no longer an "all" tab where I can look at the top stories in each category.

What the people who redesigned Fark might look like:

I'll spring for a month of TotalFark for the first person to post a working Greasemonkey script that gets rid of the useless right-hand column and reclaims that space for wider headline/comment display. EIP if you're some CSS wizard.

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.

Horsey?

And the tagline... You actually just collect clicks from people that mock the news. so, really, Fark doesn't do shiat.

Glad I am no longer a TFer.

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..

DanZero: 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

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.

As far as I can tell the new "change the background color of the div you're hovering over to blue" feature doesn't do anything except not work on touchscreen devices and LCD displays with poor display angles or color gamuts.

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.

Never mind. Gig103 to the rescue.

Since you're already a TFer, and Fark's retarded system won't let me re-up you for an extra month until you expire, let me know what I can do for you instead.

Henry Holland: 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.


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.

The Dynamite Monkey: If the music tab is truly gone for good i am probably gone with it... not sour grapes, it was just a place I found very fun.


They'll still be greenlighting music stuff just like before, but it'll be in the Entertainment tab. Also the stuff that got crossposted to the video tab, will go there still too.

On a pretty big screen at 1680 x 1050 the top part of the page takes 50% of the screen. That's inefficient and unattractive. Like your mother (sorry, had to Farkize it).
