Big thanks on the new mobile site, it looks terrific on my Android phone. Much easier to get movie times now.
Now if you will excuse me, I have to take a dump.
Can't wait to check out the mobile site!
Also, it's possible to both like and dislike a single comment. That's kind of weird. (Sorry, Stu. I tested on yours.)
As I said elsewhere in a comment that a couple of people liked and a few people disliked (Why? Who knows? Who cares?):
I doubt anyone cares what a tiny handful of anonymous likers like or dislikers dislike (why would they?). Of all the traffic that comes to this blog, I'm seeing only a few likes or dislikes on each comment. Could anything be more trivial?
I guess some folks want to have "input" without having to bother using their words.
And for what? The best commenters probably don't need petty encouragement, and the worst ones won't care if they're disliked.
What's with the five stars next to our names when previewing a comment?
Looking into the star question, btw.
Otherwise, make the like/dislike icons black.
yeah, we're gonna tone down the color of those buttons.
I'm intrigued by Facebook connect. Half in and half out on that. Typically I'm pretty OKAY with standing by my comments with my real face and ID. But other times I like the anonymity of RPing a barely sentient cup of fruit. Who knows?
Will the mobile app let you comment? I never figured out if it was possible on the old one. If not, I probably will never use it. Love the changes to the regular site though! Keep up the good work, and thanks IT staff!
b) nested comments solves all the numbering/reply problems. Just steal the AV Club's system (though their 'likes' notation is almost invisible)
In my opinion, tone down the colors on the like and dislike hands so they are subtle. Maybe the same gray as the copy stating the like/dislike counts.
Then tell us to all shut the fuck up. If we're so bloody brilliant and knowledgable about site design you'd be posting comments on our site rather than us posting comments on your site.
Keep up the good work. Tone down the colors. Done. Move along. Have a nice day and all of that.
The comment numbering system that was is probably not a complete show stopper feature, but it sure is challenging to have any semblance of a conversation among the commenters when there's no visible and intuitive way of relating one comment reply to its predecessor.
There's a ton of web talent here in Portland that design systems at least as complex as this, and there's a ton of UX talent here too who would probably be able to make some killer suggestions. I'd sure love to see Blogtown's UX blow my mind.
