The new Smarks page is really kinda crappy. Nothing more interesting than that to say, it just kinda sucks is all. This is "Site Bashing" you know...

The whole site is Botteriffic.

Don't give them any feedback, though. They'll just be rude about it.

I don't mind that it's less graphics intensive as that just means it's easier to load. But the color scheme and their Gawd-awful search engine for past articles bites. That and the fact that Scotsman seems to be the only one posting articles.

Eh, there's a million opinions on the color scheme. You either like it or you don't - it's been very polarized. I personally like blue and yellow together, and NO, I'm not a Michigan fan.

The search engine -- it hasn't functioned as well as I'd hoped, so we're revamping it AND adding a browsable listing of shows much like the old site had. It just takes a little time because I can't really devote all my time to it and Scott doesn't know anything about SQL.

That's two opinions. PS I think it sucks really horrendously bad in an Emzee way especially compared to the former, (vastly) superior design done by Sean mothertrucking Shannon.

    I don't think I'd mind the yellow and blue if the field where all the articles are was inverted (black background with white text) I know black backgrounds are a web cliche but it's easier on the eyes and would make the colors show up brighter.

    And thumbs up for putting the listings back up. Most of the time I've been on Smarks is to read Scott's reviews. I usually don't look for anything in particular, I just go "Hmmm, what happened in WCW in '92" and go from there. So thanks for doing that.

    And on an unrelated note: Fazzle, I am a huge Jhonen Vasquez mark so your icon of GIR officially makes you the second coolest guy on the board (after Mr. Malenko of course). In your honor, I'm gonna sing the doom song.

    "Doom, doom, doom, doom. Doom, doom, doom. Doom, doom, doom. Dommy, doomy, doomy, doomy. Doom, Doom, Doom..."

    Oh yeah? I can top that.

    I had the guys from Arsenic Lullabye over to my house to watch the PPV that was on during the San Diego Comic-con.

    Beat that. Wrestling AND comics.

    Course, Doug never did give back my KOTR tape (sniff)

    The only things I like on the Smarks are:
    1)Kieths rants-I may not always agree with his opinion, and he's damn full of himself, but I still respect his opinion as a person who has seen it all in the wrestling world (relatively).

    2)The Scotsman-a quote from a recent update of his:

    "In an interview with Slam Wrestling, Sid admitted he'd like to get back in the ring, and if he had it his way he'd come back as one of the "worst heels" we've ever seen. Well, he's already proved he can be one of the "worst wrestlers", so it's safe to say that he's got a leg to stand on in that argument....or does he?"

    Hilarious!
