The red and orange hurts my eyes. I don't see how it's an improvement, layout-wise. But they're gonna do what they're gonna do.
To believe in something just because you're afraid of the consequences if you don't believe in something is no reason to believe in something.

What's with your avatar choice, then?

This layout is annoying as f*ck. There's a big banner ad on the right. I can see that they need money to keep this sh*t going, but come on...obnoxious banner ads are annoying!

Somewhat Constructive Criticism:
--There are no lists of episodes by season.
--It seems half the episode links & even more miscellaneous links lead to "page not found".
--Some pages load initially as full white w/plain text, & must be reloaded to display properly.
--I can't find any form of autoplay.
--I can't select my avatar's expression.
--The button to the left of the Playlist button pops up a yellow box w/"Enter a keyword..." but the box won't go away unless I click on something else w/a popup box I *can* close.
--This site is near-impossible to navigate.
--I'm not sure if the "bold" feature on text is working.

Bitchy Opinions:
--The white sides hurt my eyes. This is why I hate YouTube: white backgrounds, even if only partial backgrounds, are painful. I really appreciated the black before.
--Maybe it's just me, but I feel that the 'Forum' link shouldn't be placed under the 'More' drop-down menu. I think it merits being listed as a main one.
--I think the "Videos" link should be renamed "Episodes". The former implies that there are additional videos available, which might lead slower noobs to think there are Matt & Trey interviews/video posts or something.

As for the timing of this beta, I think it couldn't be worse. Should've done this at least a week ago.
_______________________________________
Not seeing any ads, so I guess I must have some installed some kickass adblockers.
_______________________________________
More Complimentary:
--I do like the idea of being able to create playlists.
--Until now I had no idea there even *were* non-edited versions of episodes available as early as 4th! I hear 'Super Best Friends' & '200' are going to be put back up, which is super-King Kong-mega-MEGA awesome.

1 Suggestion (?)
Any way replies to posts could be made available under part of a user's account? Forgive if this is already possible. Would be very useful. I hate having to check my email for notifications.

Is this site run from Hawaii? Just noticed that the time stamp is the earliest in the world.

there were some improvements but they need to have a sort by release date and in the season they aren't showing all episodes and the create avatar tool is still broke

Oh snap! The forum fills the screen on my phone now without me having to zoom in! Unfortunately the dropdown banner covers the only part of the screen that my keyboard doesn't, so I have no idea what the f*ck I'm typing.

Yeah... I shot a super short (and stupid sounding) message your way last night. When we get the PM system back, I'll elaborate.


I was able to read that before the relaunch but couldn't get a reply out. I'm in Silver City this weekend, and hoping I can find a bar with Sunday Ticket. Cowboys - Rams? No thanks.

After navigating around on the site for about 5 minutes my only thoughts were... God damn it ><

It's incredibly clunky and hard to navigate. The previous site format should have only been [i]improved[i] upon and not radically changed.

Actually, it does work. But Hulu made it so that if you block the first clip out of the chute, which is an ad, every other video gets blocked as well, and you'll see nothing where the video should be. :lol: You can go into the preferences in ABP to bring back the videos... and the ads. Which is something else I've noticed. The only ads I see are in the videos. So, if you're here just to post on the board and read the Wiki and stuff, ABP is still on the ball. :)

There is a similar situation on CBS.com, where CBS informs you that you must remove ad-blocking software to watch the video, but I figured out a way around it. Disable AdBlock Plus when you visit the link or page to the video, and re-enable it during or after the first advertisement. The program is written in such a way that it only checks to see if you have ad-blocking software before the video plays, not during it.

I don't know if this will work on Hulu, though. I don't use it. It worked on CBS. But keep in mind everyone has different settings, programs, browsers, versions, etc.

Good to see CBS is using its own player (CBS Audience Network Player) instead of Hulu.
