The new design is aesthetically unpleasant.
I do not like the font, I do not like the colours that have been chosen and I think it does in no way harmonize with the rest of the website. It looks
like a html glitch.
And I can only agree to what the other poster said: It sucks. It looks completely off. Who did pick the colours ? A colour blind chameleon ? I know
these earthy-sand-tones are so web 2.0 but .. c'mon .. really ?
The font is way too bold as well, you know I'm sitting right infront of my screen and I still could read the headlines from like a mile away.
So basically my points of criticism are two-fold:
1) The colours. They cause nausea.
2) The font. Too bold, too big, too intrusive.
I liked it a lot better before, and when looking at the screencap from 2009 I even liked that better.
EDIT No 2: I looked at it in more detail and I come to understand that the horrible colours do not even represent a specific topic or forum. So
basically they server no purpose whatsoever. It's completely random, or following a pattern which I still need to figure out. Seriously, the least I'd
expect from colour-coding the snippets on the FP is that they represent different topics / subforums. As of now there's Alternative News in Booger
Green, ***** Brown and what's that other colour again ... moldy plum purple ?
