DK 5 - Daily Kos Beta: Design feedback

This new design sucks! Cosmetic and functional complaints for the beta site.

This is where you tell us:

  • I hate the font!

  • There's too much orange!

  • There's not enough orange!

  • Bring back the divider-doodle!

  • I miss being able to write diaries in HTML!

NOTE: Bugs and How Do I? have their own separate helpdesk categories.

For maximal success:
"I don't like X" will rarely, by itself, be considered compelling, and especially if you're the only one saying it. After all, everything in this design was chosen by someone for a reason. But, a thoughtful narrative about why a particular design choice is creating a problem has been successful at getting a design change. So for example, "I have trouble finding a parent comment in a long thread such as [url]" or "I always try to click this thing that isn't clickable" are both more useful feedback. Or "I cannot perform this function because it doesn't fit on my screen."

It can help if you are clear about what task it is the new site prevents you from doing and/or what workaround you have to do to deal with it, if it is not immediately obvious.
