So you may have noticed that we changed things. A lot. Like. Completely. Why? Well, this is our 5th year in business. Does it count as a business if all I do is spend money? Well, regardless, Vange and I have a lot of shit planned for you and one of them is the redesign. Sooooo, I need you to tell me what you like, don’t like. I’m going to be updating this thread with info so no repeats. Just tell me what you think.
- I know the menu bar is fucked up – if you can help me unfuck it, let me know.
- We made the template ourselves
- We are going for an Art Deco type thing and are sticking with it, so it will be changing.
- The palm trees are not gonna stay – that was a practice.
- I don’t know if any of the plugins work.
- The Reply/Quote comment plugin does not work – it’s coming out.
- I’m doing a custom font for the headline.
- I don’t like the tags in the header of the article.
- It does not work right without the lips. Gotta do something about that.
- Art Deco was hot in the 20’s. As was H.P. Lovecraft. So go read this story. Go Cthulhu!
So – feel free to give your opinions. And show your boobs. Thanks!
This is how we made the block quote. I don’t have a lot else to say in here. How about I tell you that one time my friend was really hung over and he took a shit that smelled so bad he puked in the bathroom sink at the same time.
Forgot to test the photo gallery thing. Remember Harper’s Island? Well after the jump you can see all of the characters. Also being tested in this sequence…the jump.
I know the big versions of the pics look shitty – that’s not the new design’s fault. It is your fault.
But I like the palm trees. It makes me feel like I’m on badass Miami Vice. 😀
I need to see how the comments look.
How do the comments look? Huh?
It’s not the same without the mouth.
the mouth has to come back – i just can’t figure out where to put it.
what else? And get a gravatar
WTF happened here?
@Jenny – thanks. They are growing on me.
@cats – http://en.gravatar.com/ it’s a really handy way to not have a lame blue G next to your comments.
It’s too bright up here – I’ll be downstairs.
@talen – we changed a BUNCH of shit.
like the revolver.
Everything is wrong. And Cats should be blocked from your site.
I like it. I can’t wait to see what it looks like when it’s all finished.
Acadia, you have too big a mouth to do the body text in a font that tiny.
ClevelandRealtor is calling the subprime loan on this shack. New name will be “Superficial Mortgage.”
I told you my thoughts earlier but you are like a monkey on meth so here they are for posterity:
change red BG to the brown of the block quote to see how it looks–the red is too garish
find something else for the palm trees
center pic captions, they moved to left align which i don’t like
article copy font bigger
kill research and poss most popular
return recent comments to top left spot
figure out rotating tag line, farting in tux and eating ribs in gown
the pop out menu for celebs albums
move buy stuff from right to the left side bar under pure gold to even the sides up some
i think the comments link in the article itself should be bold
i like the date and author under the title
i like the title centered
1: Body font is bigger now
2: research and most popular are gone (columns are more even now)
Centered the pic captions again.
Keep dancing, monkey. So far, so good.
I made the background brown like you asked. Now if anyone says to their friend: “Isn’t that site the baby shit on funny?” we will know they are talking about us!
I think with all these beautiful changes, I may have to show my boobs (again!) out of gratitude. And to demonstrate my obedience to your demands, Mr. Legree.
you better hold off. This brown is killing me.
Well, dear readers, if I don’t go full on attention whore, you know who to blame. LOLOL
comments page much easier on the eyes
I think there needs to be a splash of red in this sea of brown baby shit…lips need to be reimplemented in some fashion. I do like the look it is rather clasily done and it seems to be attracting a higher class of advertisers…
@Talen – sellout.
Love the art deco. Great header.
@ Cats…I sold out a long time ago…it just took this long for Acadia to figure out how to insert the ad…
Somebody really needs to fix the nav bar and get pictures of boobs up quick…
Top Menu is pretty much fixed.
@Talen: If the brown stays and we ditch the grey, both your wishes will be accommodated, as A has fixed the top nav.
I say leave the gray and make the brown part newsprint again. I also liked the red, but without the palm trees.
Not a big fan of the “taupe” or whatever the brown is.
Why is there a picture of Lady GaGa with a gun?
@ HereComesGreen – That’s Harley Quinn. Who now that you mention it should be played in a movie by Lady Gaga
Love the new background…the brown one was, well, shitty…Looks great
“Shittily Gathering Content Since 2005” … Nice job, it came together well! So glad the palm trees are gone…
