Note: This topic has been unedited for 1449 days. It is considered archived - the discussion is over. Do not add to unless it really needs a response.

So, Since my previous redesign of the UnNews mainpage, it's been getting a bit long in the tooth, Wikinews have significantly revamped theirs and have benefitted from a much cleaner layout with improved functionality and less maintenance, the existing UnNews page also has a fair amount of disorganized clutter.

So, now I can proudly unveil the new UnNews Beta page - please play with it and test it and if there's any bugs/shite that needs fixing, post a reply. Once it's confirmed usable stable, workable, it can be made into the new Main Page. -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 03:47, July 31, 2010 (UTC)

Er, will this and Gert5's opt3 layout have to fight to the death?

Personally I like this one better than opt3. Gert's layout is just a little too cluttered for my comfort. Icons-flag-pi Pirate Lord__Sonic80 (Yell  •  Latest literary excretion) __ 03:53, July 31, 2010 (UTC)

We're a humour and parody site; we parody Wikipedia and we parody Wikinews, therefore, it makes sense to have a design similar to theirs, not just because the design is more professional but also because it's more amusing -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur.

On a wholly unrelated and personal note, I frankly dislike the direction the UnNews page has been taken in since I redesigned it; it's been getting consistently more cluttered which is not a good thing by any standard; you offer a user too many avenues to travel down and they become overwhelmed and it has a negative effect -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 03:59, July 31, 2010 (UTC)

Please excuse Oli. He has been drinking. Also, for this new main page. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 04:01 Jul 31 2010
Except of course for a few minor changes I'd still like to make to ensure everything is pristine and clean-shaven, not unlike your dad's mom's anus. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 04:04 Jul 31 2010
Oh yeah, this layout is great. Although this for-ness means I'll never see them fight it out ...

Actually, I'll do it myself.

Um, where is the weather?

TO THE DEATH!!!!!!! Everyone should take part in a layout contest. I've seen articles in my layout I've never seen before. We're not paid to do this, so we can just steal ideas off each other. --Sir General Minister G5 FIYC UPotM [Y] #21 F@H KUN 07:34, July 31, 2010 (UTC)
Gert, I wasn't aware of your layout's existence when I got mine done, however, having looked at your design, I would call it more of a hackup of my original design. I should reiterate again that the original design of UnNews I made in 2006 was based on the design Wikinews had at that time. This hackup of the current layout is looking very cluttered, and the sections, whilst not a bad idea, the implementation of it is completely anathema to what I would call a clean layout.
As far as maintaining the sections goes, they could very easily be inserted into the countries setion of the beta page (and/or the line below that) -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 23:10, July 31, 2010 (UTC)

I also want to add that this new design makes UnNews low-maintenance: whenever someone creates a new UnNews article it is automatically included in the Latest News list, lead articles are of course still added manually and this is always the way it should be since quality articles have to be cherrypicked anyway, you wouldn't automate that. -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 23:13, July 31, 2010 (UTC)

It looks good. The only thing that looks a little off is the Latest News section on the right. It's kind of just floating there, not as well implemented into the grid as everything else. Woody On Fire! Wood burningTalking Woody Stalking Woody 00:14, August 1, 2010 (UTC)

I suspect you were looking at it while I was playing with it, open it up and do a Ctrl+Refresh and see if it's better, if not, please take a screenshot so I can see it and/or use www.browsershots.org (make sure you specify your actual resolution and enable javascript) -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 00:17, August 1, 2010 (UTC)

Have you had a proper play?

Could someone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE have a proper play with the page... you know, fondle its tits, stick your thumb up its arse, all the standard stuff and then see if anything's broken/buggy -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 07:12, August 1, 2010 (UTC)

Why's there a rogue </div> tag at the foot? That's all I got, right now. --UU - natter UU Manhole 10:59, Aug 2
Because HTML Tidy is a big hairy camel's minge. Thanks for the info. -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 16:25, August 2, 2010 (UTC)
