  1. hahaha, yeah, i'm almost there too. I don't yet hold things further away, I do sometimes need a nice bright light to hold things under though. I quite like the aesthetic on desktop too, but adjusted the copy in these boxes slightly. I've added letter-spacing: .75px and dropped to font-weight: 100 instead of the base 400. It's so much more enjoyable, and so much more readable. That's the tricky thing with forums like this. It doesn't much matter when browsing the photo threads, it's only when getting into in-depth convos and reading long form responses. Definit
  2. During the day I don't have much time to browse anything on a desktop, as I'm neck deep in code. But my downtime, phone on in front of the TV, phone on browsing and reading before bed. I turned 46 this year, so i'm right there with a lot of people, but don't yet need glasses. But I do need to be mindful of eyestrain because of the hours I spend in front of a monitor all day already. I frequently use the reader view for a lot of articles, or save to Pocket for a better reading experience. I've managed to ease my eyes just a little bit more here in the last 10 minutes, by updating
  3. That is indeed the one and only reason I'm not here more, my eyes and brain just can't take it. I was also mistaken, the mobile font size is set at 13px, with a tight line height. It's says 1.6, but that doesn't seem right, although because it's Roboto and not a standard font it could be. There's a lot of UX research out there about readability of fonts, uses, etc. with Roboto not being a very friendly readable font on mobile unless it's at least set to 15px, usually 16 - which is most users default font base size. Roboto is a great font, and great for Headi
  4. I've been one of the ones who pops in from time to time, and who has popped in to check on things throughout the years. I'm old school digital, not really a fan of social, and much prefer venues like this. I enjoy the reading, long posts, long thoughts, sometimes I contribute, sometimes not. I agree with much of what people are talking about in this thread and others about social media, evolution, next steps for social society in general. For me, I've been designing/building sites since the 90's and have been swept up in phone culture, unfortunately, pr
  5. Yep.. saw the contest. I'm still kicking around.
  6. Are you still doing tweaks and or bug fixes? Pretty solid on my phone, good work, but have come across a couple things.
  7. Burp.. I've been in and out of here the whole time, thought i'd say hello.. Would tend to agree with Raven in the fact that sentiment is tipping back to communities like this. I've been working in digital since 06 up here in the north, a lot of years at equivalents of Comcast/Conde Nast - Dev/UI/UX/IA/Strategy "Social" in general is played out, run it's course, and the in it for a minute zombies are starting to wake up, look for something deeper, more meaningful. Hopefully a good user experience, performance, here, will help draw some people back. Looking forward to it.
  8. Raises hand. Pretty sure 2001, and this is my second account.
  9. I have my settings set for "text only". You've also assumed i'm surfing on a computer. I should also add that "monitor larger than 1900" is limiting on a number of levels, and clarify my thinking on this. - My TV is 1920px, I surf on it quite a bit. - People change their default system font size quite often. 12px is actually too small reading on my phone. - I surf on, and many people surf on, Game consoles - sitting 10 feet away. Ever tried to read 12px from 10ft away? Pixels are an older unit of measure we used to try to accommodate every and all browser, and to force a box aroun
  10. Nice, I was hoping there was a thread started for this.. Gotta say first that this type of redesign/rebuild is no easy task and a fuck load of work for a site this large, kudos to the team for getting it up and going. i'll just reiterate the above, the site is clunky. I've noticed a few things: - random links don't work, seemingly random anyway. - some thumbnail images in the little features around the site sometimes come in at 3 or 4 megabytes, sometimes multiples on a page - can't have a 10meg site on my phone (http://whatdoesmysitecost.com/test/150407_8W_476). - can't ge
  11. not sure what your definition of new is but that piece is October 2012 - not even 4 months old.
  12. shake and stray on the dope concept tip...
