Hegel was right

Written by

bwog adDear readers,

Time for round two! In response to feedback, we’ve melded the new site and the old, bringing back the three-column format as well as the classic Blue and White color scheme (speaking of which, the magazine’s site has been spiffed up too). New features like your best comments and the “about us” blurb remain, and we’ve tried to keep the cleaner aesthetic of the original redesign.

Thanks to all for your constructive comments–you’re a tough crowd, but we’re happy that you care.

Yours,



Bwog Staff

    better! Although, why was the decision made to remove the bubbly logo? Also, perhaps it's just my monitor and resolution (I'm too lazy to see if it changes for other resolutions), but the size of the third column, far right, is disproportionately larger than the left side's column.

    Maybe you need to have a static pixel width? It does look a tad bit wide when it is in a full window. Much better than the previous incarnation though.

    So much better.But is the bubbly logo too much to hope for?

  3. come on!  

    Bring back the old logo!!!

      800x600? You know you can turn it up above that, right? Start-Settings-Control Panel-Display-Settings. Do you have a 9 inch monitor, or what?

        Small monitor and weak eyesight. And anyway, 800x600 is still the webdesign standard since 1024x768 is more popular for laptops, and plenty of people still use desktops. If you design for 800x600, your site will still be readable and useable in higher resolutions, but if you design for 1024x768 you'll alienate everyone on a lower resolution with unreadability. It's Webdesigning 101.
        And no, I'm not in SEAS.

          real internet nerds use 1280x1024 and above... kidding. 800x600 is a relic of the past, never to be supported again. How can anyone bear to look at something at that resolution nowadays?

        • Q.R.

          Well, that's admittedly a good excuse. I won't admit that 800x600 is a web design standard anymore, though, 'cos it ain't. And I *am* in SEAS. Desktops at 800x600? Desktop screens are pretty uniformly higher-res than laptop screens.

          And, not to agree with #13, but actually I browse on 1600 pixels wide. But now my eyes are going, so I guess I can sympathize a little.

    it's better, but it still looks like something from the chemical engineering department.

  5. I'm still  

    waiting for someone to outdo my giant vagina comment. Be there no poets amongst ye?

  6. Personally  

    I think the text is too big. The nice element of the new design was that things looked crisp and tasty. Maybe it's just my fetish for sans serif fonts.

    Also, on Columbia kiosks the page is a bit too wide. Maybe it's just the ones in Lerner, though.

  7. much better  

    I like this revised version much better. Thanks.

  8. no.  

    pretty, bwog, so pretty.

  9. SOOO much better!  

    Thanks BWOG! :-)

  10. logo?  

    is there anyway to bring back the old logo??

  11. was i the only one  

    ...who liked that the redesign's background wasn't white?

  12. way better  

    Thanks bwog. I only wish that the page would resize to the browser- it's just a tiny bit wider than I'd prefer, but I understand that people who maximize would want to be able to see more content. Just a thought.

    is good enough. We shouldn't be asking for more even though they say they "listen", they're the creators of this site and the ones that keep it running. If it wasn't for them, we wouldn't have anything. No one will be able to please everyone. So this is like in 'between'. Thanks for listening and for trying to please us all!

  15. beh  

    it's better, but not by much. I think it may be the serif font and the fact that its size is way too large. still missing old bwog.
