Greetings from the Other Side

Written by

Portal

Winston Churchill once said, “I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.” Bwog 3.0 is live, and it’s not completely inaccurate to say that we’ll be the same irreverent, vaguely socially relevant Bwog that you know and love. Of course, we’ve matured (pronounce that one with the hard “t”). Get ready for a more active comment banhammer, fewer CSS errors, and Comic Sans for the trolls. That said, we promise our daily editors will still accidentally cut and paste bulleted lists from Word, we’ll leave spam-eating-squirrel easter eggs in our code, and we’ll dedicate our lives to uncovering specsucks using hardcore open-source CIA software. Keep it real, internet.

<3,
It’s Bwog, not B.W.O.G. Though suggestions for a badass metaphor are always welcome.

    What is up with the text on the right sidebar? It looks terrible...

  2. God,

    it's so clichéd to say that a redesign is horrific, but . . . yeah, this looks like a Powerpoint template circa Windows 2000.

    Not lovin' it, to be honest. All the text looks the same. Let's get some more differentiation between the headlines, the actual body, and the miscellaneous junk like the comments and date.

  4. a speccie

    i think the new design is actually a little refreshing, even if it isn't perfect

    When I upvote/downvote a comment, that comment jumps to the top.
    I don't like it.

  6. grammar police 3.0  

    "fewer" CSS errors

  7. stop bitching  

    thanks for the redesign, bwog

    I'm a big whitespace fan, Bwog, but throw some more dividing lines on this bitch, please.

  9. a person who does CSS  

    You should really include a dark theme option for those who miss old!Bwog's deep blues.

    Has the captcha reply bug been fixed?

    I'm not even going to try to be constructive. I just hate it.

    Sans serif makes bwog look silly.

    Even more reason to just use the RSS feed.

  14. Things I Miss  

    1. The Older Posts/Newer Posts arrows
    2. The Low Library silhouette in the header
    3. The "It's Bwog, not BWOG" reminder in the top right corner
    4. The features shown as simple list of bold headlines
    5. The dark blue

    waaaahhh

    Is the captcha reply bug fixed?

    Nope.

    Also, the "track" highlight color is too faint.
