New site sucks as it requires you to accept all cookies and it doesn't save your password properly. Either that or it's a Brave browser thing that hates the new software.

It's a test site.

I think the look, style, and arrangement are more important for feedback.

In order for me to give proper feedback I need to at least be able to see more then the log in part.

Buy a burner computer, and log into the codex unprotected.

Destroy the computer immediately when you are done viewing the test website.

Your ignore list.
Looks like absolute shit.

Everything is huge, no clear distinction between post areas and content. Colors are way to vibrant, contrast is shit. Top bar is huge and takes away too much screen space (how do you even hide that shit?).

What "test site"? What are you people even talking about? I don't see anything new whatsoever, so what's all the uproar about?

It's a goddamn eyesore. Everything is 5x larger than it needs to be. The horizontal stripes are completely unnecessary. It's much harder at a glance to tell if a thread has new posts. Page numbers are for some reason really faint and hard to distinguish from the background.

One thing I've seen sites do is make different selectable "styles" for the website, with the "mobile friendly" style as the default.

When ur logged in though, you can have the proper monocled style selected.

TL/DR: Mobile is a Cancer. Nuke it from orbit.

I just now saw the new headline, I usually have "New Posts" as my starting page so I didn't see it. Well, time to check that one out.

The search function works way, way worse than the old one despite having more options (read: it doesn't work at all). For example if I look for the word "littered" posted by me I get exactly one result (as it should be) but if I do it within the new forum no results are given. And yeah, it doesn't look good.

Fuk that, return to the 2000s forum aesthetic, make it the only option.

Or at least make a mobile version that isn't ugly.

I do not like new site layout. It look like dog poop very much. Do not redeem site design. Thank you for listening. Love from India.

They will implement this. And Codex will not be the same.

I lost count on how many forums suicided in this way:
new forum software, everyone is against it because it's objectively worse, gets implemented anyway, forum death.

I disagree. Are you one of those people complaining about the Reddit redesign as well?

The new reddit UI is objectively shit unless you are addicted to popups, so what's your point?

The new codex UI looks like a mobile UI mockup. Everything is too far apart, looks flat and without detail :majordecline:
