A Website Appeared!!

Hey everyone! You probably noticed that the new site layout is in place! This is the place to comment on problems you notice around the site. Hope you like what we're doing with the place! :D

Again, love the new look, enlarged comic title feels a bit awkward, twittercopy etc. I think it's because Yuko often puts words at the top of a comic, and they're paler than the bolded text. I don't know which to read first, maybe? Feel free to ignore, it's nothing important.

I think what I like most is the prominent-ed feed/share links. I smell traffic influx.

Just a suggestion

Comment by Aceman67 (not verified) Wed, 04/01/2009 - 04:23

Might I suggest a Faded transparent gradient on either side of the main content so that the stark contrast between the white (And black title background) background and the main site background isn't so abrupt?

Excellent work on the site. Much better with out eye searing whiteness (Although that is a personal preference), the original site was very good as well.

Looking good Conrad.

Hey nice work. I hope you don't resent me too much for getting you to use drupal. Some time I'd like to see how you put the site together.

I agree. The old faded/lighter titles were definitely better. Other than that, I think it looks great. You're so talented.

RSS feed

The site looks great. Though, the RSS feed for both the comics and blogs didn't seem to have a name when i added it to google reader. Nothing a rename on my end couldn't fix, but thought i'd bring it up.

Huh, weird! I'll totally

Huh, weird! I'll totally check that out; thanks!

I miss having the

I miss having the "first/previous/next/last" options at the top of the comic as well as the bottom. This is my only complaint. :)

Yeah, nav-above-the-fold is

Comment by conrad Fri, 04/03/2009 - 12:45

Yeah, nav-above-the-fold is one issue I'm going to have to address, but don't worry! It's being addressed as we speak! I'm making small structural changes to the site to support that functionality however, so stay tuned. :)

Yay. :)

Comment by Disco Duck (not verified) Tue, 04/07/2009 - 04:08

Yay. :)

Slightly Detracts

Comment by Omikuji (not verified) Fri, 04/03/2009 - 16:00

The new layout is pretty good, although I do miss the completely minimalist nature of the old one.

My only concern is that the coloured links (Feeds/Share/More+) contrast too much with the black and white comic, distracting from the focus. My suggestion would be to move the coloured links below the twitters to avoid this as much as possible. But yeah, keep up the good work.

I feel like there should be

I feel like there should be navigation buttons both below and above the comic, not just below. It makes it easier to skip past ones you've already read without having to scroll down.

Yeah, I'm working on putting

Comment by conrad Mon, 04/06/2009 - 11:22

Yeah, I'm working on putting nav both above and below the fold. In the meantime, please feel free to check out the archive page! We've been doing lots of work making sure it's a usable, workable feature to the page, rather than just a list of comic titles.

An Error

Comment by Definitely not John Kelly (not verified) Wed, 04/08/2009 - 22:18

Dear Sir,

I have noticed since the update to the site that there are significantly fewer comics about the "John" character. Perhaps this is an error in your code. Please double-check your work.

Your Concerned Readership

Maybe the black is a bit strong.

I think the black line running down the side is distracting (it becomes the focal point of the site) and makes the page look unbalanced. Ideas for improvement:Place another line on the left of the comic to balance it. Make the black fade quickly to gray. Just use a lighter colour/shade. Remove the solid line and just leave a gap. Still, liking the comic. Fred McDonald

Yuko's twitter is running out of the white space she has alloted.

Welcome to Firefox. I swear,

Welcome to Firefox. I swear, there is nothing I can do to force it to break. Don't worry, the Twitter boxes won't be around for long anyways.

Awesome sauce (mm, with curry!)

Comment by Jez (not verified) Thu, 04/23/2009 - 10:19

I cannot get over how awesome this comic is. I went back and read all the archives a little while ago and have been checking back everyday this past week (and been delighted every time there's an update!) Seriously, between comedic timing and the adorable art style, you guys have it _down_



Comment by Jez (not verified) Thu, 04/23/2009 - 10:23

Aw, crud, meant to put this under the comic. Oh well, the site looks great too, tho I never did see the old layout :)

Love your comics
