Are you browsing on Verizon FIOS? Notice that NG content loads really slow in the afternoon? There's apparently some sort of peering issue between Cogent (our bandwidth provider) and Verizon. Not sure when it will be fixed but I sure hope they fix it soon or else I'll have to switch back to Comcast!
Verizon throttling? Seems very likely, from what 2 techs told me today :\ Node-overheating is a factor... But Google's over-reach might be a factor as well.
Totally different topic... If you aren't a supporter (or a supporter who isn't logged in), you may have noticed some pages on the site (ie game pages) are using a grey layout like the store. Do you prefer the site this way? Been pondering stripping the colors out of the page elements and just going with grey - it seems to make the content pop. During the redesign, Wade used to complain that the front page looked like someone took a shit on it and Rob used to say we should style the entire site with the store colorscheme... Were they right? Is it time for a change?
I thought we were going to vary up the background pictures... I clear my cache before I log in (to keep CPMstar from tracking), so I really haven't noticed the blandness you describe.
This came up due to some quirks with our CSS that made it difficult to run dynamic skins while retaining a variety of page layout colors, because it's all wound up so tight at the moment.
.... if the code can't accommodate something, then yeah, pare it back, but the color coded thing should stay on, at least as a highlighter of sorts. Myself, I miss blasting chickens and swf's, and listening to Endless Ladies Handbag, or whatever the simple loop was... be a nice treat for the logged in members.. add it to the UJ page(s) too :|
Just get the guys working. Fly them over to NG HQ, sequester them in the building, till everything's sorted. Bad enough the Favorites thing is broken (at least we had one week of uptime), and the multi-comment glitch is... well, it's better, but you can't refresh a page and comment again :\ you have to navigate elsewhere then come back to comment again (which I suspect is the reason why the Favorites and Updates thing isn't working). I'm buying another http://www.newgrounds.com/store/product/supporter-upgrade soon.... still love what you've here bro :)
Now building Vault 101, soon to include useful and concise podcasts, maybe.
If I'm not here, you can find me peeling caps on GTA: Online, gamertag: VicariousE
