Anime Your test site sucks

  • Use Inter (https://rsms.me/inter/) for the font, this new font is too soy for me, honestly.

  • Some UI elements are borked, like the page # on posts. It should be much lower, it's being obscured by the last post.
  • The user info box per post is too large, it could be much smaller.
  • The reactions look weird, the numbers need to be emphasized. I like the current "x2" system, it gives a lot of weight to the reactions. I can hardly see the numbers on the new design.
The new interface sucks. It is not ideal for text. It's not even ideal for shitposting (look at what any chan passes for "design". That's actually better than the redesign) because the design is conducive only to "muh newness". It's wrong. Please stop.

Yes, I voted for "Bitch, I zoom out".

Look up WCAG AAA before designing your website. I guarantee you, if you follow that, it will look decent even if your colorscheme is diarrhea.

Just the parts about colors, the rest is irrelevant.

I personally like the way the website looks right now, it has SOUL. The redesign looks like some half-hearted football forum or something. Utterly SOULLESS.
I like the new theme. Most of the issues have been fixed.
I think we're pretty much ready to move. Don't really care about the persistent "share" buttons. Put those in a collapsible menu, along with the report and bookmark buttons. Really, who's sharing posts from the codex anyway? We've got an entire ecosystem here.
The emojis should be in a box of their own, the way they are now.
Make the emoji menu instantaneous, I don't want to view that zoom.
Zoom on the emojis is an improvement.
Verdict: :incline:
:kfc:Haters need to try some tendies now.

Twiglard I like what you've done with the "click to expand" on long quotes.

Should satisfy the people that hate overly long quote pyramids taking up half the thread. Also curbs the worst excesses of pyramid builders.

The test site looks already better than the first draft, so thumb's up for that.

What really bugs me at the moment is that buttons don't have text anymore, currently on old Dex the button and the text are shown after a rating (e.g. :argh: rage), in the new site, it is just the button ( :argh: ) which is less expressive and more difficult for users who don't know what a button means (and some of them are not really self-explanatory). It would be good, if that could be fixed.

Regarding those:

I’m thinking of making a Pip Boy like so:

…instead of the speech bubbles. What kind of dimensions should I go for?

I didn't see any test site, is it only for patrons / donators?
