the nu-shoutbox is fucking disgusting and unusuable, between the ratings, the linking of pictures (dick pics, anyone? brown assholes, anyone?) the ability to "report" shouts, all the notifications from the box... tons of wasted space yet the actual box is cramped and you can only see like 5-6 shouts at a time and that's it.. good thing we have 2 inch margins everywhere for uhh reasons i guess.. at least you won't be able to cut yourself on a corner since they are all rounded like a toddler's toy, call it duplo-box. ugly as fuck timestamp blob, the ratings is actually taller than a single fucking shout, and the thing is just a MESS. and why is it ;;avatar;;@;;username what does the @ symbol appearing there do? nothing but add more bloat. this shit is disgusting and the entire fucking website looks like some failed microsoft product from the year 2010

is du prepared to lose 50% of his userbase within the first week? because that is what's going to happen.
Depends.

Which 50% if the user base?

Regressive nazis who hate anything that is different and that can get you into legal trouble. Could you make the text slightly larger before you change this into the new site? Commies and nazis are allergic to progress but if you do it in one swoop they will defend the new and more readable font to the death after a month.

DarkUnderlord needs to learn how to hustle.. why are usernames changed for free, for instance? That should be an easy $5 donation to change your username. Carole King could pay for DU's Ferrari in two years... how is XF2 going to bring in the bucks??

5 dollars each time? I can't afford that.

Maybe 5 dollars for a yearly subscription.

whoever's fiddling with the troll top left is a talentless idiot

Question is whether Codex staff are fine with hiding the troll for all users with horizontal resolution of less than 1450 pixels.

tbh I was just going to throw whatever shit you did out and start again anyway. Possibly with bright red borders, pink backgrounds, and fluorescent green text that's too small to read, along side dancing donut people.

  • 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.

https://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG2AAA-Conformance
https://accessibleweb.com/rating/aaa/
Just the parts about colors, the rest is irrelevant.
https://accessible-colors.com/

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.

That's not me. It's an XF2 feature.

But I'd like to know if there's anything more to be done on making nested quotes more readable.
