δ) We're also increasing the minimum width of our page to support the new image sizes, and because over 95% of you have screens that wide anyway.

Why not have automatic image scaling to downsize the larger images when the browser is smaller with the old minimum size instead?

I don't mind the other changes but even on my widescreen monitor the current minimum size is significantly larger than my preferred web browser size, which seems to get me to about "Headlines of" on the right sidebar. Easily fixed via Stylish, but still mildly annoying to be expected to browse the web at or near full screen by default.


This. Not everybody browses full screen all the time. Not a huge problem for me - I never pay attention to the right-side column anyway. But just sayin'.

And as log as I'm here: 850x1500, baby.

The headlines look the same size to me...but, the comments look ginormous.

Now the comments look the regular size again.

Have I adjusted that quickly or was there a slight change?


And, now the comments look giant again.

So you might have noticed a few changes around here. For your edification, here's a quick summary.

A) On all our headline pages (Main, Geek, etc.) you can now hover over the headline and share to Facebook or Twitter. It also shows an easy link directly to the article. If you don't like it, you can turn it off in your Preferences page in myFark (check the preference for, "Don't show Facebook and Twitter share buttons.")

2) We bumped up the font size a bit on headlines. Drew's eyes ain't what they used to be.

iii) We're increasing the maximum limits on images in threads - both dimensions and filesize. You can now post an image up to 850x1500px, with a filesize up to approx 500k. You can still link to images larger than that.

δ) We're also increasing the minimum width of our page to support the new image sizes, and because over 95% of you have screens that wide anyway.

blue) We're changing all contest threads (Photoshop, Farktography, etc) to automatically default to showing only the contest entries (vote-enabled comments), to keep the emphasis on the contest itself. There's a 'Show all" link after the last comment, and a checkbox to "Show nonvoting comments" at the top. If you always want to see all comments (both contest entries and discussion about the contest), you can change it in your Preferences page in myFark (check the preference for, "In contest threads (Photoshop, Farktopgraphy, captions, etc), see regular comments as well as contest entries.")

ChubbyTiger: Put me down on the 'not bad' list. biatching about the very minor font change seems a little ridiculous. If anything, you should all be biatching that GD has only posted one (new and embiggened) picture.

I think the next round of changes should include amping the background color back to "holy fark blinding white" for a couple of hours again. Maybe flippantly dismiss the concerns of the user base, too. This "actually works right away" and "explaining what's going on" bullshiat is lame.
