Well, the mobile and full site version still look the same on my tablet, so that's a plus. I guess I'll have to look next time I'm at the computer.

I noticed a new look the other day and thought I was going crazy when no one mentioned it. But it switched back to the current format after 10-15 minutes or so and has stayed that way for me. I hope they don't permanently change to the version I saw. :/ It's hard to describe and I wish I had taken a screen cap, but they didn't have the new articles at the top like normal but ones from the day before or a couple of days before, and you had to scroll down to find the new ones. The blue banner at the top was reformatted as well.

Don't know if this is similar to what NathanLoiselle is seeing now though.

Huh, it's the same as usual for me, both on mobile and PC.

Now that you mention it, I do see a change! There's this great sucking void where humor used to be.

Oh well, it's not all doom-and-gloom. There's always Bucholz and the video team.

Man created logic and because of that was superior to it. Logic He gave unto me, but no more. The tool does not describe the designer. More than this I do not choose to say. More than this you have no need to know.

Never mind. The bastards changed it back. I'm sure it's all a ploy to fuck with my head and make me look crazy. Little do they know, I'M ALREADY CRAZY! *coughs*

Not sure about you guys, but this is what I'm seeing. The last time I visited before today was two days ago, and I already forgot what the previous layout looked like. But it wasn't like this:
NewCracked.png
NewCracked.png (628.42 KiB) Viewed 1781 times

I usually don't mind as long as it's not ugly and that it doesn't interfere with my browsing experience. To me, it isn't ugly. Rather bland, but clean and straightforward.

There's this new behaviour that annoys me, though. When I mouse over to the title of any of the three articles below the big one, the description expands and yoinks the title away from the mouse pointer, so when I expect to click the link as usual -- whoops, I clicked nothing. Title's up there, bud. Personally, I'd prefer having the description static, like with the rest of the articles below (and how it was before). No surprises that way.

what are you talking about, it's still the same to me

I'm just getting 404 errors when I try to go to Cracked. Anyone else experiencing this?
