I stopped by recently and put my two cents into the discussion about the redesign. A lot of you had the same complaints that I did to the redesign. I got bored tonight and tried to make a user style to remedy some of the more common complaints. For those of you sticking around here, I hope this helps make the site more enjoyable for you.
- You need to be using FireFox or Chrome
- You need to download Stylish as an add-on/ extension
- You need to install the Userstyle I created
What it does: I got rid of some of the lesser viewed elements (at least by me) moved the fanposts and fanshots to the right side and the same height as the writers posts. I got rid of the shading on the main image in the splash, but couldn't figure out how to remove it from the other pictures without removing the images themselves (if someone figures this out, let me know). I also changed the font and color to something less obnoxious. Its still not as nice as the old design, but it should help.
It should work on all SBN sites. For some reason it is working a little cleaner on Chrome than on Firefox. If anyone around here is more skilled with CSS wants to take it and run with it, feel free.
