(a) I didn't design it
(b) A masters in pure mathematics makes me more than a fucking 'IT techie man'
That and a bunch of other things which I really can't be bothered to elucidate right now to a bunch of nit-picking tosspots.
I've tried to be civil recently but one more ridiculous insulting and unjustified comment like that and your user account bites the dust.
Seriously I am fucking sick of reading this kind of shit after the amount of work I've put into this stupid fucking website.
I didn't do the design work for the new site, but even if I had that would be a ridiculous inference to make.
get to you matt -
it's sterling work. But being able to post images might be a benefit to the board - though I understand that it may require some policing
- but to reiterate - sterling work matt
But given I run a website that sticks to a simple black/white/grey 'colour' scheme I'm bound to say that, I suppose.
I am going to ask the graphic design guy about darkening the body text a bit
Yes even I do find it a bit grey
As for images you guys will have your own photo galleries eventually, if you could just quit throwing your toys out of the pram collectively for a bit.
...not so keen on the messageboard.
My dog is sterile.
but i miss the old site :'(, why do people try to improve good things, be content.
Yes it is. Rather than trying to read black text on blue we're reading dark grey text on white. If it was easier the other way round all newspapers would be blue.
This is nice and clean. Personally I prefer sans-serif font, but this one's a nice serif, it has to be said.
It can only get more improved, I'm sure.
There's a reason most sites use a nice clear sans-serif font, it's just much easier to read and less tiring on the eye.
Take Pitchfork for example:
I think there's a little too much white space going on, but aside from that the design is good.
User features I miss though - band ratings and 'find all posts by user'.
We know all the missing features from the old site are going to reappear eventually so why bother mentioning they're not here?
not everyone knows that the features are returning
and newspapers arent blue cos that would cost more. liek duh
I do find the white a little harsh on the eyes. To quote Maddox:
"When I go to a web site, I WANT TO READ THE CONTENT. Trust me, that micro-font everyone uses isn't nearly as original as they think. I've chosen a black background for most of my text because it's easier on the eyes than staring at a white screen. Think about it: your monitor is not a piece of paper, no matter how hard you try to make it one. Staring at a white background while you read is like staring at a light bulb (don't believe me? Try turning off the lights next time you use a word processor). Would you stare at a light bulb for hours at a time? Not if you want to keep your vision."
Harsh, but you get the point.
...hate the players?
Ignore the haters...clean lines are where it's at.
it's lovely, very easy to read. And it's obvious you've all worked very hard on it, ignore the people whinging.
Is next in the line for the throne.
it's grown on me, the white's nice, especially now the text's darker. I really like the way the replies work, how it shows you where it's going to appear on the page. Nice work.
appreciate it Matt.
But i don't want to seem a suck up, so Fuck You and the Horse you rode in on...
(please don't ban me)
I don't yet know if I prefer this new site design, but seeing as its free I decided I'd accept is as it is and get on with my life instead of telling people off for changing a service i enjoy for free.
it remembers your name if you leave the site and then come back again now, as it used to. You haven't responded to my myspace friend request jez. you are in so much trouble.......
also had sex with his little sister's friend if I remember correctly. Shame on you.
I think the new look is great! How anyone could prefer the 'greasy spoon' that was the old site, I don't know!
You detractors are "stuck"!
