WhyteRaven74: 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.


Well with that logic why have any tabs then? I am sure what will happen is fewer music links will get greened, and they will be less active because music lovers won't want to wade through Kardashian/Jersey Shore/hollywood out of ideas links to find them.

Thanks for responding tho.

Fallout Zone: I liked the "All" tab up top. But, whatever.


More clicks means Drew sucks more dicks.

I lament the loss of the music tab.

But most of you all had terrible taste in music anyway.

Hah! So I now see ads 'n' crap on the right in links+!
And a blob of Lorem Ipsum!
Bastages!

preciousmetal: Dr. Horrible: New design is fine, but:

"We don't make news. We mock it."

...is lame multiplied by stupid multiplied by painfully awkward.

Refresh and read it again.


My understanding from this thread is that this is a new perk that you get for your $5, but we mortals can't see it.
 
2011-06-01 06:41:52 PM  
Oh, wait... maybe I'm not quite over it: bring back the music tab.

FYI: There's some random lorem ipsum text in a paragraph near the top of the page with an id of "spacer" that's only a pixel tall. I can see a one pixel tall section of this text. Kinda annoying visually. Probably would have been better to throw some non-breaking line spaces in that paragraph instead of actual text (if it's actually even needed).

Perhaps I didn't say it loud enough:

I just got an email from whizbang saying that if this thread gets over 10,000 posts, she'll send everyone who posted in it BIE.

ultraholland: FIX FONT


Who cares what the font is? You'll get over it.
 
2011-06-01 06:45:23 PM  
Well I just submitted a link to have a survey to get the music tab put back, and I didn't proofread it and submitted it with a typo, which I guess is a pretty big fail and argument against the type of lowlife that frequents the music tab, so I have Darwinned myself outta fark with my own stupidity. Thank goodness there is nowhere for it to go green!

Everything is ruined forever!

/hooray!

Hale-Bopp: I have a horizontal scroll bar now. :D

"ctrl" + [minus symbol] will fix that

I see they ignored my request to make the politics tab look like a freshly discharged turd.
 
2011-06-01 06:46:43 PM  
It's totally fine.
 
2011-06-01 06:46:44 PM  
For such an epic thread kicking off the new design, dare we summon... HIM?

I am slightly over it now.

Here is the feedback I got from the Fark Powers That Be regarding the horrible font and the vast amounts of empty white space...

"Based on feedback, we reduced the amount of
whitespace a tiny bit on the headline page, and a bit more on the comments
pages. The reason is better readability. We realize that a few people might
disagree that it's more readable, but we feel that it is. You are correct that
more monitors are widescreen, but more people are also purchasing and using
netbooks with small screens. We have more than 20% of our users still on
screens that are less than 1280 pixels wide, and we had to accommodate them as
well. The content area will stretch on wider screen monitors."

Can't believe this hasn't been posted yet.

On the plus side, I'll be spending more time away from the computer and being more productive from now on!

At least you improved your "Real News. Real Funny" tagline which was so bad that it made the Virgin Mary abort Baby Jesus.

I'm working on a Greasemonkey script that will get rid of all this crappy whitespace and stupid font that makes it look like a goddamn mental institution up in this beeotch. Big fonts are for retards and cripples.

Some Farkette said BIE if this thread goes 10K for everyone who posted. This thread has as much chance of going 10K as I do of soaping up Scarlett Johansens honkers at Raffles Bar in Singapore.

I noticed some of you have not properly thanked Reddit yet for this redesign.

Be sure that you do so, or your account will be re-assigned to ZeroFark[TM].

Have a nice day.

You know, the music tab didn't HAVE to suck. No offense to whoever was running it, but it was moderated horribly.

Well, I guess there's no way to say that with no offense is there. Oh well.
 
2011-06-01 06:58:19 PM  

muck4doo: Would have been a lot better if there was an "Out the subby" button.


I would be. Because more than half the links are submitted by the same trolling SFBs.

Can someone create a new site like fark, with the original fark layout? Then we can stage a mass exodus and start over?

Well, I guess as long as your mom keeps making those mini cheese pizzas, you're all good. It's the extra cheese that does it.

Wow it managed to be uglier than the last redesign. That must have took a lot of effort.

I just went through the page source and the Drew crew could save a bucket o' money by learning CSS and removing all these hard coded HTML attributes that makes the site eat megs of bandwidth every page load.

As a side effect Farkers could Stylish to their hearts' desire even easier.

FunkOut: namatad:
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?

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


I have two of the large plushie cheats. I kick them every once and awhile to remember the old days of the internet.

About 50 or so, give or take.

God, it doesn't look any FARKING DIFFERENT, people.
