As I warned last week, I’m messing with the site theme. This post is here to act as a catch-all for feedback so that all of the various “WTF DIS SUX?!?!?!” comments don’t end up mixed in with the other threads.
One thing I really regret is that I never kept any sort of visual record of this thing. Back before video games ate this site, I had a lot more focus on tabletop gaming, and the site had a (embarrassing, crappy) Olde English styled title. The site was done primarily in yellow, of all things. This is the only image of the site to survive from the first four years. And for reference, here is what it looked like yesterday.
However bad today’s update may look to you, let us reflect on how far we’ve come since September 2007.
Also: I don’t have a smartphone, but I understand those are huge these days, even though they’re actually small. Someone mentioned the site has just a bit of horizontal scrolling on a smartphone. Anyone have any advice on how a web tinkerer like me can view or test how a site will perform on typical mobile devices?
I’m interested mostly in feedback on readability and usability. I’ve tested in Chrome, Firefox, and (saints have mercy) Internet Explorer 8. Looks the same on those three, which must be some kind of miracle. Let me know if anything is broken, hard to read, hard to find, or hard to use.
