A dark/night theme would be a welcome change.

[–]rowlanry4 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy

They have one. You can set it in your reddit settings up in the top right.

[–]8n0n0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Got it, thanks. Much better.

[–]j4c0p0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

use m.reddit.com and switch to night theme. (upper right corner 3 lines button)

[–]DwightWolftail108 points109 points  (15 children) | Copy

I preferred the old upvoting/downvoting signs . I mean , stars ...

[–]dmystery58 points59 points  (3 children) | Copy

The little pills were pretty cool and reinforced the whole idea of "Upvote because it's genuine RedPill logic" not "Your comment made me feel fuzzy inside so here's a gold star"

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 12 points13 points  (2 children) | Copy

[–]RealGucciSosa5 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy

I like the new banner, but not the new layout. The last one was simplistic with standard fonts. The new layout might drive off potential newcomers. I can't seem to find the "topic" buttons either which separated posts by categories.

[–]PM_ME_TYRANITARS2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Seconded the topic buttons

Okay, here's a compromise. I've brought the pills back for comment sections.

[–]lakalahehe5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

Their description pop-up is missing. Would be better with it.

The little pill [popu-pup] were pretty cool and reinforced the whole idea of "Upvote because it's genuine RedPill logic" not "Your comment made me feel fuzzy inside so here's a gold star"

[–]Redasshole4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy

Seconded.

[–]IRC Mod-Anteros-2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Brought back the old ones for now. We'll update them to make it more uniform soon.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 6 points7 points  (2 children) | Copy

[–]OfficialMotherfucker5 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy

What was the reasoning behind changing the upvote icon to stars? The old icons were much more intuitive. I second /u/dmystery 's interpretation - you upvote redpill logic and downvote bluepill hamstering. Of course, this also applies to the front page and threads.

The star design loses this sort of nuance, it's more like 'I'm upvoting because I like this'. It reminds me of a 'favorite' icon, and looks more like a regular subreddit rather than trp.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

We're working tirelessly to bring the design elements of https://www.trp.red/feed/ and the multiple subreddits into conformity so there's some consistency between them.

I do agree, having the red and blue icons help solidify what should be upvoted and what shouldn't be- and so we've brought them back for comments. But I don't think clicking 'favorite' on the home page for posts you like is a stretch.

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (9 children) | Copy

is there a button for the flairs like, 'red pill example'. they used to be at the top of the page.

edit: wow this was my first post to TRP, and I just got a message from the mods from /r/offmychest saying I am banned from posting there because I am engaging in a hate subreddit.

I didn't know this was a thing.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 5 points6 points  (6 children) | Copy

Yes, soon to be added to the sidebar.

[–]lakalahehe0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

The flairs were everything!

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

The flair filter links are now on the Sidebar at the bottom.

[–]lakalahehe1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

I know, it is much less convenient. They 'were everything' and they're not as accessible anymore! It was the best utility of the design. And I prize utility as to think it was an unworthy sacrifice! The style was good before.

[–]hourglass_deLarge1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Definitely, but they could fit into this design, with some extra effort

[–]666Evo2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Wear your ban as a badge of honour.

[–]lumberjackinla6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

The icons in the left are overwhelming. A reduction to medium size would be a pleasant add on

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (0 children) | Copy

Ain't feelin' it bro... :(

[–]Chad_Thundercock695 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy

I hate it. But then again I always hate new website designs :)

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 13 points14 points  (0 children) | Copy

You'll get used to it, chad.

[–]2legion32715 points16 points  (0 children) | Copy

This looks classy as hell. Well done, gentlemen.

[–]Endorsed Contributorredpillbanana14 points15 points  (11 children) | Copy

Very nice and clean and a bit serious which I think is appropriate.

It reminds me a bit of Soviet design which is always cool. In this subreddit, The Red Pill swallows YOU.

[–]recon_johnny2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

Different. Double take on the first page load.

Crisp. Can't sort via category any more (Meta, RP Theory, etc); but I never did--just used New or Hot.

Change is good. Glad to see we're not doing the same thing just because it's always been done.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

Can't sort via category any more (Meta, RP Theory, etc); but I never did--just used New or Hot.

I'm going to find an easy way to bring that back, perhaps in the sidebar. If you use RES, you can click a flair and it'll sort for you.

[–]FreelanceLight0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Good man, looks good though

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

  1. Reminds me of team red in teamfortress.
  2. Meets material design guidelines. /s

I like it.

The difference between this and the previous design is like the difference between android kitkat and lollipop !

The lefties that run Reddit put us in continued jeopardy requiring us to invest in an off-reddit site, trp.red.

[–]heavyraqs0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I'm glad to see that. It is very wise to promote trp.redpill. is it possible to make it a link if someone clicked it?

[–]Wallhanger281 point2 points  (4 children) | Copy

Soon they'll be selling t-shirts in the banner too.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 14 points15 points  (3 children) | Copy

I actually only have the stars seeking out gay comments. Should be normal red pills next to quality content.

Edit: oh..

Double Edit: reverted back to pill icons. Now my joke makes no sense.

[–]BlackJ11 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'm going to miss the old look of it but this design is cool.

Nice work redpillschool.

[–]1naMlliPdeR1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Looks better. Nice and crisp. As someone else said, I also preferred the old upvote and downvote buttons.

[–]Nikelu1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Wow this is beautiful. Old upvote/downvote system please.

[–]TheYoungOwl_4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy

It's so beautiful...pleasant to my eyes...I might shed a tear...

[–]cjsenecal2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

Just don't let any women see it.

[–]TheYoungOwl_0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Lmao never talk about fight club..

[–]AdonisHera1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I was literally on here five minutes ago, and clicked back on. First reaction was WTF? I like it.

[–]AnAbsoluteSith0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I retyped the address at least twice before it sunk in. I'm a bit slow.

[–]DysfunctionalBrother0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Looks cool as fuck

[–]Drenmar0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Way more pleasant on the eyes. Good job lads.

[–]thawayred0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Great.

  1. it is possible to merge the "welcome" with "rules and glossary" ? Why not? the welcome parahraph has only three lines but takes header and space.
  2. it is possible to put asktrp between network links? That way people notice it quickly and will focus usual questions into asktrp instead of trp. Also considering the amount of text in sidebar, it takes to scroll the whole page everytime I want to open asktrp

  3. other than that, bretty gut.

[–]DforDeadpool0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

[–]prodigy2throw0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

[–]redheadmale0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

What happened to the flairs under the banner?

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

We're adding links to the sidebar so you can still filter by flair. Will fix later tonight.

[–]peruvianlurker0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Looks great, reminds me of the good ol' classic forums days :)

[–]vagbutters0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Not bad, I like it.

[–]Dimethyltriptamines0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I like that the threads are bigger. Its lit

[–]callme-roy0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

THANK YOU!!!!!!

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

I always keep CSS off on this sub since it's not really RES night mode friendly. http://i.imgur.com/JmXYbGL.png

I got really used to reading with night mode on, texts tend to be quite long here and it's much more comfortable to read white letters on black background.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I will look into night mode for you.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Okay, nightmode is functional for now. I'll revisit it later for more tweaks, but you should be able to use it.

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

Thanks man. It's much better now.

[–]bornredd0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Third level comment replies become black and unreadable. Just leave all comment replies beyond first level at white.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Sorry I was updating nightmode and has a small bug- refresh, should be fixed.

[–]bornredd0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Looks better now, thanks RPS.

[–]mustard50 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

If feels like I've entered the public forum of socialist revolutionaries. What interests me about that is why do I think that way? Obviously the font style, the dominant red color contribute greatly to that impression. The question is why do I relate the two? I've clearly been brainwashed. :-)

[–]Endorsed Contributorvandaalen0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

There seems to be a bug in the css, when it comes to the third level in comments:

http://i.imgur.com/OqPoPGD.png

Looking pretty nice apart from that though! Thanks for putting in the effort.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

RES night mode isn't cooperating.

[–]NietzscheExplosion0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Nice except black background posts? Wtf did I do to deserve that shit?

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Sorry, refresh. Nightmode was broken. Should be fixed now

[–]yoghurtorgan0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Looks good on "night" mode.

[–]ransay32770 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Looks good. Keep up the good work.

[–]aazav0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I turn off all custom subreddit styles.

Too much shit that is animated and flying all over the place for my tastes.

Basic shit that works wins out every day. I might actually use this one. That's saying a lot.

That said, this design is nice.

[–]Royalartist0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Just so long as nobody, nobody, not never ever calls the background color "beige" OK!

[–]Senior Contributordr_warlock0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Keep the old rant/venting icon.

[–]seeing_it_in_red0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I dig it. After you've been working a project for a while. Its always nice to throw a bit of new paint onto it once you feel its complete.

[–]TheInkerman0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

The vote count on the left (and to some extent the thread titles once read) are difficult to distinguish from the background, maybe make them darker?

[–]1StoicCrane0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Excellent! A TRP Finance flair! Looking forward to quality posts yet to come!

[–]TheRedThrowAwayPill0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

FINALLY! Something to change things up!

This sub got REAL quiet past few days. Seems TRP + MensRights + Anger Phase all moved to the Donald Trump subs.

Feels like tumble weeds here.

[–]prettyflamazing0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Looking clean af.

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

Great job, guys.

[–]Luckyluke230 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

not a bad change I like it. will take a bit to get used to though

[–]Endorsed ContributorJamesSkepp0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

If you don't like the new design, install Reddit Enhancement Suite (Res), then you click "Toggle Subreddit CSS" button and you get the classic Reddit look. You know the clear, transparent and readable one :D

[–]TrueMetal0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

TRP is just testing our frame...

Jokes aside, looks good, esp. now that the little pills are back for up/downvotes.

[–]Spiral-knight0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

[–]throwawaycomedian950 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

[–]NiceTryDisaster0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

[–]hailhailhailandkill0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Nope. Looks like some incomplete community page under construction in 2002.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

We based it roughly on this piece as inspiration.

We were debating auto-loading music, but couldn't all agree on which dashboard confessional song to use so we scrapped the idea.

[–]Heyokalol0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Music or sounds are always a terrible choice on a webpage.

[–]2IVIaskerade0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

It's nice and clean, but I miss the "filter by flair" toolbar at the top. It's good to have it included in the sidebar too, but I think having it easily accessible at the top as well would be better.

[–]asktrpquestion340 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I like it.

[–]Govedo130 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

It is really nice one. Thank you for your efforts!

[–]afsdasdfasdfaf0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Not a fan of the huge banner stating to the world I am reading TRP. Redditing at work is acceptable, but reading TRP might get me fired.

[–]spexer0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Why is the pill half white? Are you suggesting the red pill is Oxycodone?

[–]hores0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Not sure if this is by design or an error but the hyperlinks to the individual threads are extending past the linked text into the blank background area of the same line. I find myself opening up threads by accident when I'm clicking around on the main subreddit page.

[–]liliillililiill0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

The "The Red Pill" banner announces to everyone behind me that I am browsing TRP. Although I appreciate the value this subreddit provides, I am not a fan of being easily identified as someone who browses here.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

You can turn off subreddit styles on the sidebar. Probably for the best.

[–]AragornRF0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Expect a Blue Moon rising on BP Sub.

[–]2wiseclockcounter0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

The flair descriptions overtop the post titles are overpowering. There shouldn't be any visual obstacles in the way of reading the titles. I would suggest removing them and making that info a mouseover popup. http://i.imgur.com/z0kLsg4.jpg

It also allows for more posts to be seen at once.

[–]ArtistBlock0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I'm loving the new designs.

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

Love the new design. Can't wait for haters to start calling us all communists and fascists.

[–]3Yakatonker-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

The beige colour is terrible, just keep it a single back drop colour. If anything the hierarchy of this page should be driven by the typographic design and layout.

[–]trptwerp-2 points-1 points  (0 children) | Copy

I like the stars.

[–]antwonedw-5 points-4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Wow, The New Design looks good.

Keep up the good work guys.
