Better than the last site redesign, but not as good as original fark.

It's nice that they chose a font that even Anne Frank can hear.

However, it looks like ass. And not the good kind. Too big, and the kerning is horrible, making it even harder to read. Then there's the line spacing... ugh. Why did we go from College Rule to Elementary-Learn-Cursive?

I'd bet decent money that they built it on Macs (where it probably looked terrific), maybe (maybe) tested it on a Win7 virtual machine and pushed it. Everybody else? "Screw 'em."

Which is fine, if it's made as an active business decision. Not fine if it was a mistake.

If you're not going to use CSSes that we can modify/replace ourselves if we feel motivated, why not allow logged in users to choose their font and size (among other things)?

Also, I may be the only one, but getting rid of the colored tabs does eliminate a clear background indicator of "where am I now?" in the browsing experience. No biggie (and I wasn't wild about the tabs when they were introduced), but it (like the monotone grey and too much vertical line spacing) does seem like a step backwards.

/ course, if it were up to me, it'd be green monospace on black, I guess
// Yup, over it

It's hard to look at, I have to keep going to other sites to rest my eyes. Freakin' headache inducing.

can we please get the 'all' tab back. It is great to use throughout the day to keep up with new items.

For the final word on the redesign I defer to the honorable man from Rock Ridge:

t1.gstatic.com

"I wash born here, an I wash raished here, and dad gum it, I am gonna die here, an no sidewindin' bushwackin', hornswagglin' cracker croaker is gonna rouin me bishen cutter."

Now who can argue with that?

The layout is ok. Probably needs a smaller max width for this column. A paragraph looks like two long sentences on larger monitors.

it's all good.
 
2011-06-02 10:20:03 AM  
I don't know that i ever came here for the layout anyway, and i certainly never promoted FARK based on its layout - but kudos for striving to improve.

OH! and - EIP for the redesign BIExtravanganza.

Obviously this new layout was created by a developer and NOT a designer.

Here is a picture of what one of the developers may look like.

After spending most of yesterday evening not being over it, I found that after a solid night of sleep, that I am, in fact, over it as of this morning.

Why does every farking thing have to be "new and improved." Now Fark looks like it's a corporate subsidiary.

My sixth month old baby took one look at the screen and pooped.

The new design sucks, and there are less tabs/sections.

Perhaps if I would have slept, I would be over it by now. But alas, I was unable. It's a vicious cycle.

As someone who designs for a living, the biggest issue is the padding between headlines and posts. It's like a wall of text and it makes it harder to read. That would be the very first thing I tighten up.

Why can't Fark be more like MySpace? We could customize the site to look the way we want with
different skins. I could have a sweet unicorn theme in the background of my politics tab flame wars.
Everything would be so much more mystical. There could be a plug-in that allows me to listen to my
favorite Godsmack songs while I read about ugly-ass animals. There could even be a chat program that
would allow people in an argument over gagortion to save us from their pettiness by taking it to the
chat. Just a few suggestions. People would get a lot less upset about changes this way.

This redesign feels like a rainstorm. Overcast colors and all that.

The choice of fonts make it very 'roomy' for me.
 
2011-06-02 02:50:52 PM  
Tagline still sucks. "We don't make news. We mock it." That's not accurate based on my experience with Fark over the years. Sure, someone will occasionally make a hearty LOL post in a sad/sick thread, but overall we don't all flock here to mock everything. There's a "hero" tag that gets used on occasion for very decidedly non-mocking reasons. Same with legitimate newsflashes.

What could have possibly been wrong with "It's not news, it's Fark"? That pretty much summed up the whole experience here in one line.
 
2011-06-02 03:09:57 PM  
While on one hand I say, why mess with a good thing, I can say that on the other hand that my old eyes are appreciating the new larger font.

Drew is getting older, maybe he needs the font too.
 
2011-06-02 04:03:14 PM  
Yeah, I'm over it.

Everything seems in place.

Except the MUSIC TAB.

The music tab was a culture within a culture.
No self respecting music lover is going to desire to insult their senses with visual over hyped garbage. We're a community who has been uprooted and sent to live with the crazies. Music tab was a refuge for the wary. A place to share artist appreciation with your fellow farkers. Music is emotion & mind, not drama of the eye.

A song takes no more than 5 minutes on average of ones life. Words or a melody can inspire any farker to a greater end. You just cannot get the same result with film or entertainment nonsense. To much time is wasted on film and actors.


We once had an home called Music Tab.
Now we are all sent adrift at sea looking for our friends our community.
Drowning in the sounds of nonsensical drama laced craziness of the Entertainment tab.

Hey, it's been an hour now. Where was the earth-shattering kaboom?
 
2011-06-02 06:54:31 PM  
A long, long time ago...
I can still remember
How that music tab used to make me smile.
And I knew if I posted right
That I could make the fark trolls bite
And, maybe, they would shut up for a while.

But on June 1st I made a toast
Saying bye to my old posts.
Bad news on the desktop;
I had to take off my top.

I can't remember if I cried
When I finally saw Drew's windowed pride,
But something touched me deep inside
The day the music tab died...

/RIP Music Tab

meg, if you're popping back in here, please help with this:

farm6.static.flickr.com

there used to be a noticeable difference in the color of the 'number of comments' from when you originally clicked on the comments, and when more comments were added.

as you can see, I already clicked on the comments of the 'spelling bee' link and the 'groupon' link. and after more time passed, more comments appeared, 'the +1, +5'.

so for the 'spelling bee' link, the (10) (+1) look almost identical. yes, the (10) is slightly faded, but before the redesign, the difference between those two was extremely noticeable.

I went through the 'preferences' in 'myfark' and I didn't see anything applying to this.

Is there a way to make the color of those numbers more different?


sorry if this isn't the correct spot to be asking this.

My cat puked on the screen. Then my dogs shiat on the keyboard.

More like 'new and UNimproved.

Farking hate it.

It's funny how many different screens the design has to please.

I have a 17" monitor two feet from my face, so it really doesn't matter what they do, I can see everything just fine.

But god forbid you have a 13" screen, or you're looking at this on your phone, and maybe you're outside...etc...

I am forever grateful for Stylish and those people with more coding skills than me although this new Stylish style isn't as good as Cthouln's old one for the old new Fark. I hate the links on the right, as I feel like I'd fall off the left side of my chair if there wasn't a wall right there.
