Greetings from the Other Side

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.

  • God, says:

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

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous 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.

  • a speccie says:

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

      @Anonymous The fact that this comment is in troll comic sans when it’s an actual complement speaks volumes about this redesign.

      1. Anonymouse says:

        @Anonymouse …or about Bwog commenters/comment voters? I’d imagine it’s dependent on upvotes/downvotes.

  • Anonymous says:

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

  • grammar police 3.0 says:

    @grammar police 3.0 “fewer” CSS errors

  • stop bitching says:

    @stop bitching thanks for the redesign, bwog

  • Anonymous says:

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

  • a person who does CSS says:

    @a person who does CSS You should really include a dark theme option for those who miss old!Bwog’s deep blues.

      @Anonymous Maybe someone CS can use bwog’s google cache to make a greasemonkey script?
