(Fark)   Through the years there have been a lot of changes to this site, and it never fails that some cry about it and complain. Can we have a thank you thread? Thanks for trying to make Fark even better for us. Cheers   (fark.com) divider line 344

Whatever the changes were, I haven't noticed them at all.

Thanks to the lady who works at the DMV. That's a tough job.

I was wondering why Fark wasn't fitting all the way on my old old monitor.

I am saving all of my gratitude and praise for Zombo.com... Anything is possible on Zombo.com.

i like fark, i like the idea, i like the people (that i haven't ignored) i like the options, i like the filters, i appreciate all the work everyone does to allow me to use their servers.

that said, this site is very very ugly. it doesn't really take away from the utility, but let's not pretend that this site doesn't look like it is from 2003. the glossy gel "smart" and "funny" the 90's "quote" button, the repeating background picture, even the gradient "fark" logo. this site could have been made in Frontpage with wordart.

/again, it doesn't matter, it still works great:)

kptchris: I like the bigger easier to read font size.

I am hating the fact you've gone and trashed the site like everyone else is doing. Jumping on the retarded bandwagon of stuffing facebook and twitter shiat all over it.

If you want facebook or twitter, go to those sites. Quit littering the website I like to read with that trash.

Go "Like Yourself" and then Twunt about it elsewhere.


Pro tip: go into your profile and click on the preferences tab, put a check mark in the box second down it reads something like "Don't show Facebook and Twitter share buttons", and then click the save prefs button. TA-DERP.

I love FARK! Always have, always will! Thanks guys for making a great site better!

Ability to post bigger images in threads?

EVERYTHING WENT BETTER THAN EXPECTED

Changing the font size because people can't read, and then when using Ctrl-Mousewheel to bring comment font size back to pre-change level, commenter & vote button header borders are missing the black outlines?

I don't understand this. The previous font size was "standard". If you didn't like that, why didn't you adjust your default font size to something you liked? Instead now we're all stuck with "bigger than standard" for text that is mostly lucky to deserve the standard size, let alone enhancements.

I'm still not seeing what changed. Did you change the font size or something? I had to Ctrl - - earlier. Normally I have to Ctrl + + on the websites we get links to because they think I'm reading this on a 10 inch screen held up to my face.

And the rest of you: thank you for making me laughter out loud!

I shouldn't have to, much as everything else is going to shiat on the web, why shouldn't it be OPT IN instead of Here, have your shiat sandwich of facebook and twitter and coming soon, linkedin, myspace buttons adding to it.

I want to preface my comment by saying that I'm really not the type to complain.

I've seen a lot of changes in my 10 years as a Farker and TotalFarker but there is something about seeing a Facebook and Twitter icon when I mouse over (?) a headline that seems like it is a step too far.

Back in the days when I was flush with cash I'd always buy a one year subscription at a time. The economy has hit me hard and I usually just re-up month to month at this time.

I enjoy the FARK community, although the Photoshop contest aren't what they used to be. I've also noticed that comments in the weekly TSG Mugshot threads are way down.

In short, I suppose I'll get over it but it seems to me that something has been lost...
 
2012-07-14 01:51:30 AM
Thanks to Drew, mods - but most of all, Farkers. You guys sadly FON'T know who you are, but there is a small group that make me squee like a fangirl. And a lot I just enjoy. The trolls are getting too numerous, but hey, ignore works.

/ slashies, take a bow!
 
2012-07-14 01:52:18 AM
Oh, and how about redesign features people want?

Like no more Daily Fail links, or less greenlights that misuse the Hero and/or Ironic tags?

Oh wait, without all that, Fark would fail to exist as a website, the empire would topple and the beer money fund would run dry.

Carry on

Does the new MacBook Pro remove the capability to set the default font size for both the OS in general and the browser in specific? If not I don't understand your point.

Probably because you don't understand english. But that's not my fault.

I'll totally cop to being an idiot. But I do know how to adjust the default font size on both my browser and my OS, which is apparently a skill you lack. Are you sure you want to be calling me names?

Thank you Tom, Donnie, Mary, and Taylor. The work you do is fantastic. Also, Jack, Devon, and Pat, those late nights really paid off. The new color scheme is great, and the enhanced submission tool is fun to use and should really generate more good content.

It's not the site that can't handle it, it's the amount of users that still have older technology that limits these things.

I have been reading Fark since Tet.. At the time all the other newspapers ran their presses out of ink and they were freaking out all groovy like. But fark kept adding new leafs to the reader mail page and it never went down. God that was a scary day. Posting comments through the post was something else, but is how we did it.

Regarding the facebook/twitter stuff you see when you hover over a headline....that can be disabled. Go to you profile, click on preferences, scroll down to "Link & Headline Preferences". Under that header tick the box next to "Don't show Facebook and Twitter share buttons", then click the "save prefs" button and you're all set.
