Needs more patriarchy to be a proper satire of Jezebel.

Fark the lame Smart and Funny buttons as well. It's like they wanted to go for the up and down vote route of so many other sites but were too embarrassed to actually go there.

It just dawned on me there's an image example from the old Fark everyone should be familiar with:

I still haven't gotten over the latest Deadspin redesign, which made the site very user unfriendly if you want to read the comments.

And I laugh everytime I see Reddit, who's webmasters haven't learned anything about webdesign past 2002.

Electromax: Now I wanna see what Fark looked like before this apparent meteoric redesign. GIS'ing it just gives me a very similar looking site with the tabs as different colors. Is that the one?

Back in my day Fark didn't even have Tabs. There was just Fark. You just scrolled through all the articles. There were boobies links right there on the main page. And the turtles, there were so many turtles

That's because an amateur made it in less than 5 minutes.

As a designer and developer I totally "get" Jeff's irritation, but the real reason his response was so stupid is because the redesign genuinely was terrible.  I also get that Fark considers itself outside the mainstream, but that doesn't mean it can't look nice, be funky, AND make money.  In its current form it is very hard on the eyes.

Yeah nothing against the photoshoppers today but it seemed like the old contests were so much better. There were fewer of them and everyone went into those threads because there was just so much good stuff. I don't know what changed it. You could blame cliches but those were always around.

Here, here.
Back in the beginning Fark was a news aggregator that had awesome photoshop contests intermixed with porn.
Then the camouflaged sponsored links started.

I liked it when it was just weird, obscure and funny news. Fark was more about the humour and stupidity in news back then. Now it's whatever comes down the pop culture poop shoot that's already on a zillion other blogs and sites. Instead of being some offshoot thing, Fark is now just another purveyor of the internet culture zeitgeist.

And there were only a couple dozen greenlit threads per day total.  All the others stayed totalfark.  So a lighter (well most of the time) could depend that by the time a thread went green it had been thoroughly vetted.  Fark served as a one stop shop for news and entertainment for lighters and for $5/mo a sort of whacky surreal underbelly of the greenlit thread beast.  Now threads just get green with zero posts and there's very little reason the average lighter wonders "hmm I wonder what I'm missing" and worse yet has to weed through several dozen stories to get to anything of substance.

brandent: markfara: I really don't get it. Is it, like, women are always b*tching about something, or something like that?

I'll be kind.  It was an epic thread announcing the re-design of Fark.  One of the key people running Fark at the time made a comment to the farkers "You'll get over it".  Never to be heard from again.


Even if it's true, it's bad customer relations.

Meh I'm still upset about the removal of the foobies tab off the main page. Sure the site still exists but isn't nearly as lazy supporting.

Well, the spacing of comments was different.  And the widow was centered, not pushed to the left.  These things required a revolt.

Someone posted something regarding "2007" further back.  I don't know if that's right or not, but one thing is for sure, there isn't one day I open Fark up that day doesn't cross my mind.
