Minor Cosmetic Updates

#1 Post by jmo1121109 » Sat Mar 31, 2018 9:11 pm

Hello everyone,

We've recently been going over the google analytics recommendations for webdip, and the highest rated suggestion to draw in new traffic was to make some minor cosmetic adjustments to the site. As such you may notice a slight change in the color schema. We're going to evaluate the traffic over the next month and decide if we're going to keep the change.

Please feel free to let us know what you think of the changes!

Wow this is actually really pretty! I didn't know webdip had it in it to look this good. Thanks for all your hard work jmo.

Only problem is that there is a little ugliness in the new logo. Other than that, great job!

Should hypothetically WebDip want to change its look again, and I wanted to keep this look forever, would I accomplish that by again not clearing my cache?

No! I cleared my cache and this site looks ridiculous! I liked the old look better; looked more formal. Am I stuck with this look for a month?

Stuck with this look? It looks so much better. Embrace the change. It is part of us now.

My eyes are blinded by all the pink! Who's idea was it to make the website pink of all colors!

This has got to be part of their April Fools celebration...

We asked a survey of 100 trusted, long-time members which of eight design options they preferred and they voted for this one. If this one is not well received by the community over the course of the month, we will move on to the next one, and so on until each of the eight designs have undergone a period of public inquiry. If people are generally unhappy with all eight designs, then we will have to work something out from there, but hopefully we won't even get to the second design because the dropoff from this one is pretty steep in my opinion.

100 trusted long-time members? 8 designs? This is definitely an April Fools joke. It'll be gone in 2 days.

I'm not sure what the complaints are here, if I'm going to be perfectly honest.

Can anyone else access the mod tools when they’re not a mod? This seems like a huge bug that needs fixing now!

No but it clearly fits with the whole aesthetic

I took part in this and voted this design as the worst. Frankly I'm upset at this continual show of the admins' bias towards the alphanumeric.

The best design had a view counter at the bottom of every page along with a hilarious moving image of a dancing baby. It was the perfect fit for this website's slick and futuristic user interface.
