I like this new version. Much clearer and nicer to look at. I like the fact that the fave count is given such an unobtrusive colour, making the vote score much more prominent. I personally pay more attention to the vote score rather than fave count, so it's a huge improvement to me.

The only thing that bothers me is how tiny these numbers and icons are. I would recommend making them bigger overall, like so:

I for one welcome back our downvoting button overlord

Nah, not quite lol, but this indeed looks less crumpled on the tumbnails. An idea would be to put the yay/neigh on the image itself instead of the up/down so we could keep that ol ref we had.

I m kinda curious if there were any other change on the site that caused such tantrum like this one ever before…lol

I miss the show so much
The vote buttons really should be much larger. I'm quite apt with mice, but now I must really focus if I want to vote, it's too easy to miss.

The buttons aren't going to get bigger, unless you want them to remove the downvote from thumbnail function again.

Well bag me a possum, you guys actually went with trying this other look.


How many times do we have to scream "WE'RE TRYING THIS OUT GUYS WE DO EXPERIMENTS IT MIGHT CHANGE" before people pay attention and notice? c:

@Kj2
And like someone said back there, DB just became a hugbox

Edit: i went to see what caused to ya'll make this change and i agree that it may make people think more and with the fetish stuff, but downright removing it from tumbnails still doesnt feel right

We've always been a hugbox, bro. Rule 0, don't be a dick, and all that.

Please take further discussion of this topic to one of the other threads — this thread is for general feature discussion and I'd like to avoid it being overtaken any more by a single issue

We have a lot of Russians going off browser language identifiers, though most of them appear to speak perfectly good English. At one point all the various strings around the site were extracted into a separate file to be translated, but then Ponibooru shut down and we had to do a lot very rapidly and that got abandoned. It'd be quite a task to do translation of all the site now, but not entirely unfeasible if we decided to do it. Which we likely won't, since we've got bigger fish to fry, but I like the visual language idea — ie, using icons where it makes sense to supplement text labels, and in some places replace them entirely.

An alternate language feature would be nice, I'm learning Japanese, And I wish to try to distance myself from English for awhile so the Language will stick better

I hope that sounded right

Fine Arts - Two hundred uploads with a score of over a hundred (Safe/Suggestive)
The End wasn't The End - Found a new home after the great exodus of 2012

@Clover the Clever
I think in this current overreactive mood I can't look like anything but a bad guy, but yes I knew from the beginning that you'd be trying things for days and just wanted to throw in a casual word of praise. Don't group me with the troublemakers please.

I wanted to give more detailed feedback yesterday but it seemed things became tense, didn't want to add extra weight, but I'll risk it.

UPLOAD PAGE:
This looks rather uncomfortable.


There is not actually anything I'd want to see in the background other than whiteness, so I don't really know why transparency may be neccessary. On the other hoof, light blue on white (and sometimes blue as shown here) is more difficult to read.

LAYOUT:

Wanna explain how I used thesite before.
I was able to make 100+ uploads this last weekend and could monitor them for comments for days afterwards because the 'Booru made it easy for me to.
See, when I click My Uploads (or the DB front page) and I get something like this >>359420
The image score is on the far left. The comment score is on the far right. Because it's black-on-light blue both are quite visible to the eye, and because of the positioning, they are very easy to follow even I compare them on two pictures. May not be perfect but it works.

So what I could do was to bring up My Uploads, scroll down quick (I have my images/page set to 50 atm — that's ten rows) and still immediately see if any of the scores have increased, if there were any new comments (as long as I remember yesterday's numbers) and where the images are in score/popularity relative to each other. It was very easy for the brain to quickly absorb that one number from each pic and compare them.

Now when I bring up My Uploads and see something like this: link
I can not do this anymore because of these reasons:
- The comment counter, purple on a blue background, is more difficult to see altogether. (Similar problem with fave yellow but that doesn't interest me mch actually.)
-The three counters are very close to each other so each distracts from the other two when you are trying to compare the scores on images next to each other.

As a result I'm more inclined to give up my habit of keeping a check on my uploads (I usually follow it for a few days whether they had tag changes, comments, votes) because I can not absorb the page in one quick look that only takes a few seconds.

Now I just want to make it clear, not everyone may use it like that, and I personally do not mind either because I have been spending more time here than what's healthy for the past few days anyway, so anything that makes things more complicated for me is a net gain for my IRL job and classes. :D

I just wanted to let you know how someone like me may be using the site in case it has some useful info about how others may be using the site.

There is actually more room in this setup, you can go check the All Time Top Scoring lists.

The spacing and colour of text in that area we'll tinker with a bit. Tracking activity is best done with subscriptions, though, really (watching the images — which you can enable on your uploads by default in your settings).

Size of buttons — we're going to leave that (and spacing/colour mostly) until we've done some more version trials to see what'll work long term. Once we settle on something we'll refine it.

The upload page thing doth appear to be a bug. I've raised it.

The odd word of praise is appreciated, so thanks.

Can we have something like this on the forum (not the smilies):



Basically, it allows you to highlight text and then quickly add syntax with one mouse click.

Also keyboard shortcuts which would work the same as clicking the buttons:
ctrl+s for [spoiler]spoilers[/spoiler] ctrl+i for _italics_ ctrl+b for *bold* ctrl+l for "links": etc.

I'm in favor of us never having smilies ever. We have enough of a smiley on TheSmilingPony. An eternal frown. Which best describes all of Derpibooru.
Why the icon for derpibooru isn't just a frowning twilight is beyond me.

There you go for a suggestion: Make frowning twilight sparkle our site icon.

Random suggestion: maybe if you wanted to discourage downvoting but not remove the downvote button, and kept the current look, you could merge the overall score to act as a part of the upvote button as well, same as how the fav and comment scores are?
Ie. you click the upvote button — upvote.
You click the score in the middle — upvote.
You click the downvote button — downvote.

I know it's a small thing, but considering how little I voted the past days due to the smaller icons to click (though I do not completely like this look), I think just a bit more work for a downvote and easier time for an upvote could have some positive effect.

(On odd words of praises: I'll probably save it for some other thread but: thanks for bothering to make updates to the site; thanks for the continous background work to keep it running; thanks for usually picking the right choice/coming to the right conclusion when adding new things (seriously, I don't think I saw a site that was this good, private or commercial). THank you for the very useful tag shorthands+their menu on the upload screen, they make browsing/uploading several times faster. Oh, and thank you for fixing the upload tagging bug I mentioned only the other day.)
