The new design is a bag of dicks, but we're working on making our sub usable in it. Just wanted to let you all know we know it sucks. Complain to the admin.

We don't have custom CSS yet, and the flair options are highly limited. We may forever be trapped in this awful design.

In the mean time, you can access old.reddit.com/r/theredpill for better times.

You can just opt out click on the top left go to your settings and then click off that of new Reddit

[–]Sanctusary18 points19 points  (3 children) | Copy

Yes but for how long?

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 8 points9 points  (1 child) | Copy

That's my fear. As it stands, the only way to "opt out" is to be permanently logged in.

[–]leviathan511 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

No, he meant for how long like when they will finish betatesting new design and delete the old reddit forever.

[–]roy282822 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

You can go to preferences and uncheck the boxes in beta options to fix it.

I use res so I never even noticed

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (0 children) | Copy

I was wondering why I hadn't noticed this new design everyone keeps bitching about. This explains it.

Except now I'm morbidly curious...

[–]nicholasbuchanan37 points38 points  (4 children) | Copy

It's truly horrible, why do they want a new design so badly?

[–]Weltenbaum 1 points1 points [recovered] | Copy

Appealing to an audience that is used to similar mobile interfaces

[–]X_Cody22 points23 points  (0 children) | Copy

Looks way too cluttered. I think they are going to abuse it to serve more adverts now.

[–]UFO_mechanic_AMA10 points11 points  (0 children) | Copy

It’s the Facebook school of web design: just fuck my shit up.

[–]TheTrenTrannyTrain12 points13 points  (0 children) | Copy

Just opt to use the old design by default.

[–]1empatheticapathetic60 points61 points  (1 child) | Copy

We got comfortable and dropped our guard and that dumb whore reddit got seduced by some asshole who convinced them that a flash minimalistic design was the best decision they could make at that moment. Turns out it was a superficial decision. Whores love flashy new shit.

Instead of being able to hard next we are too invested in this relationship and it would cost us our dear access to the children that isn’t really accessible if we separated.

Remember, we are the prize.

minimalistic design was the best decision they could make at that moment.

Couldn't even make it represent the custom flair icons the sub has. It's more like something drawn in paint. Minimalistic my ass :/

I left faceborg, i left chirper (i followed the fashion, for once)

This reddit redesign makes me consider doing the same.

This seems like supermarkets, when they rearrange goods when customers are too quick to find everything.

They want you to wander, spend time, and go where they want you to go (rarely where you 'd better go).

[–]hiaf1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Didn't think about it like that until you said that, definitely makes sense Reddit is trying to remain competitive in the social media industry. Addictive technologies are where its at.

[–]BurnoutRS6 points7 points  (1 child) | Copy

I force my browser to display the desktop site, nothings changed for me. I assume this only effects the mobile site?

[–]Adrenation5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

The mobile site is the same as it was

[–]RedwallAllratuRatbar3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Can we please, please have flair system with hide posts option? examples "gtaonline" subreddit

Reasons: I'd love to hide every posts within those categories "don't marry" "studies show women are evil" "field report"

They are cool to read when you first see this sub, but damn, I don't want to see them for one year straight

[–]Reformed65 1 points1 points [recovered] | Copy

Is it just me or is the new Reddit design really laggy? I think the new design has so much hidden layers and animations waiting to be played which clogs up the system resources.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

It's very laggy. Still loading comments at 2 secs in? http://a.trp.red/files/waterfall.png

[–]carb0ncl1mber2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Every time I go to a new page, the left side menu bar comes up. Slows me down and frustrates the hell out of me.

[–]VickVaseline1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'm using the Firefox ESR 52.8.0 (32-bit) version and things look as they always have.

[–]desistrategist0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Superlike the new feels! Now it looks like the encyclopedia I want :)

[–]untonyto0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Trust TRP to call out dysfunction and hold frame while doing it

[–]Endorsed Contributormonsieurhire20 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I like the old reddit format just fine. I view the attempts to change it as attempts to break it.

[–]perplexedm0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Seems reddit totally forgot about digg.

[–]Endorsed Contributormonsieurhire20 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Reddit probably being infested by some outside force that hates it and wants to break it by "fixing it." I see it happening so much with services that work great because of their simplicity... that then gets complexified, which at the very least, creates a cognitive burden.

[–]Glassantler0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Card view is nice when viewing a sub that has a lot of image posts. No need to constantly click on a post just to see what's in the photo.

[–]GanksGriefersForFun-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

Idk. I started reddit a little before the change so adjusting wasn't hard.
