Isn't that what gets said when every website gets redesigned though?

Maybe it does... but I consider myself a fairly intelligent web surfer, and I gave up looking at this redesign.

I can't remember a redesign I've hated recently. I find that usually site redesigns are for the better. But ow, my eyes! They hurt so bad! Is Widro actually intentionally trying to blind me?

Blind you with white text on a black background? I'm not sure I follow.

White text on a black background is hard to read. See this, for example:

http://library.albany.edu/imc/webdesign/page4.htm

It also throws my vision out of whack and makes me see all blurry for the rest of the day. That could be just me, but I'm guessing probably not. After all, you're straining your eyes, and eyestrain isn't good.

IIRC, the old 411wrestling had white on black, and I greatly preferred that to 411mania's various permutations.

IL, well, I like the look, if not the layout.

Personally I prefer the dark background with the white lettering. Makes it easier for me to read. But that's just me.

I like the new setup, and would favor it over the old one, no matter what the color scheme was.

I don't mind the color scheme so much, but I wish they would organize their reviews and articles a little better. Specifically, if they could be listed alphabetically, that would make it a lot more helpful if you're trying to find a review for a specific game or movie.

Although the image borders are ugly.

I'm with you on that, for me it's a lot easier to read white on a black background.

That's why I select the "Pffft!" layout option when viewing this site in particular. It'd be interesting to see what layout style for The-W.com is most popular with registered users.

Edit - fixed. For some reason I originally read Stagger's post as saying that he preferred black lettering on white. *shrug*

    It's funny that yourself and others have brought that up. Myself, I've always found the complete opposite to be true, in that it's a lot easier for me to read white on a black background.

The one we force upon you after you register, naturally!

mysql> select skin,count(skin) from users group by skin;
+------+-------------+
| skin | count(skin) |
+------+-------------+
| 0 | 223 | // pffft!
| 1 | 50 | // Grayscale
| 2 | 40 | // Blues
| 3 | 30 | // Greens
| 4 | 2544 | // Shifty
| 5 | 15 | // ezboard
| 6 | 8 | // grey/burgundy
+------+-------------+
7 rows in set (0.03 sec)


We always meant to encourage the more enterprising folks out there to design their own skins and then give us the hex values to program into the board, but ... we kinda never put a page together to help people actually test out different colours and what not.

That last one is relatively new...I can't remember when Aaron put that one in. Those of you who like black text might like that one more than the good ol' ezboard scheme (which remains VASTLY underrated).

Wasn't the grey/burgandy skin inspired by that whole Dangermouse/Grey Album thing? When everyone made their websites grey for one day or whatever?

Nope - this was loooooooooong after that. If I recall correctly, I think Guru wanted a more monochrome setup - or rather, one with black text (as opposed to the "Greyscale" setup, which was still white text).

Too busy to use capital letters and apostrophes - tsk, tsk.

When are you going to buy some more ads? We made a lot of money off those!

    Hi,

    The Summer of Hyatte is on indefinite hyattus.

    In fact, I'm probably not coming back.

    Fuck Inside Pulse and fuck Widro. He can find someone else to be an asshole to.

There were only 3 reasons I still went to IP and that was Hyatte, Eric S. and the Comics Nexus. With Hyatte gone and the turnover rate that is happening at the Nexus all that's left is Eric S. and he is now becoming as sporadic as Hyatte.

Plus as of this post, I can't even get into the site to see if Eric S. has decided to post this week or not.
