Hi everybody,

You may have noticed some changes to fark today. Hair where there was no hair before and an additional tab where there was no tab before. For farkers you'll see "Discussion" which now sits between "Main" and "Sports", for Totalfarkers you'll see "TFLive" between "Totalfark" and "TFAdvice".

Why, God why?

Well, we're going to start taking a little more care and interest in the regular threads that users have so awesomely kept up for us. We have our weekly writers thread, wrestling, comics, vidya games, books, CSB all kinds of fun stuff for folks who are interested in things.

To do that we've been creating a "TFLive" tab to hold all those regular threads, our shooting threads, and threads about the President talking on the TV and any other kind of live event discussion. And those will feed into the "Discussion" tab which will be on fark mainpage.

So for the folks who are submitting regular weekly threads (First off, thank you all so much) please submit them to "Discussion" from now on rather than sports or entertainment or wherever. As thread "hosts" you will be able to decide if you want them to go to the larger site or if you want them to stay in TF. We know some groups will be more comfortable discussing things behind the paywall so we're happy to work with you on that.

We are also working on a calendar view so farkers will be able to see what threads are coming up rather than just stumbling onto something cool because you happened to be on fark early one Saturday and saw the Bookclub for the first time.

If you have an idea for a regular thread, and better yet- if you're willing to host it, let us know. We're repurposing the Sports tab forum as a meet up place for thread hosts and Admins to discuss thread schedules. So if you're interested in getting active with all or any of this, pop into there and we'll have some admins watching over that the next few days.

HELLO LITERS. WE WELCOME YOU TO THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF DISCUSSING THINGS ON FARK.

YOURS IN TEMPERANCE, BIRDMAN.
 
2017-01-10 12:36:05 PM  
Someone hold me.
 
2017-01-10 12:36:15 PM  
I WAS PROMISED WAYNE NEWTON!
 
2017-01-10 12:36:21 PM  
And, thus, the end of days was nigh as foretold by the prophesy...
 
2017-01-10 12:36:30 PM  
Should I make my Carson Daly joke here?
 
2017-01-10 12:36:33 PM  
I'm going back behind the paywall where it's safe.
 
2017-01-10 12:36:42 PM  

LlamaGirl: Should I make my Carson Daly joke here?


Please don't
 
2017-01-10 12:36:43 PM  
Yo dawg. We heard you like discussing things, so we put a discussion tab on your discussion website so you can discuss things while discussing other things.

Where did the video tab go?
 
2017-01-10 12:37:08 PM  
But I can still shiat post on all tabs, right? This is important
 
2017-01-10 12:37:43 PM

Pfft. Saw this on Reddit like three days ago

So, TFers see:
TFLive (Which is Discussion for liters)
TFAdvice
TFDiscussion

Liters see:
Discussion

Then they or we get to choose where it goes?

I'm trying to figure out how to exploit this to get more shart threads out to the liters.

Glitchwerks: Where did the video tab go?


Maybe gone.. It was one of the least used tabs.

Smock Pot: But I can still shiat post on all tabs, right? This is important


Only alternating tabs on every other Tuesday.
 
2017-01-10 12:38:23 PM  
I don't want to be a thread "host".

I want to be a madame in an old house of ill repute instead.
 
2017-01-10 12:38:25 PM  
I think it's a fine idea. It really does make sense for the weekly threads.
 
2017-01-10 12:38:30 PM  
So this is why Yahoo! changed their name. We won't know it's them when they take over Fark.
 
2017-01-10 12:38:37 PM  

Glitchwerks: Where did the video tab go?


What's a VIDEO tab?

And the ground shook, the sky rained fire, and to all it seemed the world was ending.
 
2017-01-10 12:38:49 PM  
So the Farkus tab was renamed the Discussion tab?
 
2017-01-10 12:39:13 PM  
This is nuts.

So just some new tabs?  No excessively small text area or sweeping format changes?  Alrighty then.

This is an outrage!
 
2017-01-10 12:42:39 PM  
The last time I was offered new tabs, I woke up in the middle of the Poconos in just my underwear and a He Man mask.
 
2017-01-10 12:43:02 PM  
What the hell kind of monster names their kid Scut anyways? No wonder he was a little psychopath...
 
2017-01-10 12:43:10 PM  
I'm not so much opposed to the thing you did but the way you went about doing it.
 
2017-01-10 12:43:11 PM

More stuff coming. This is more organization and structural for recurring fark content(threads).
