|Johnny reviews the new list interface.|
Here's a quick test/review of the new list system for you all to enjoy, content is digs.
|1||Dead Can Dance|
Within the Realm of a Dying Sun
Right, so the drop-down list is actually pretty neat. Approved.
|2||Dead Can Dance|
Changing list-type (i.e. Album/Band/Song) halfway through a list doesn't cause all data to be lost. Approved.
|3||Dance Gavin Dance|
Downtown Battle Mountain
The spacing of the text box is pretty good, as is the spacing between items. The old style was a bit claustrophobic...
In a Flesh Aquarium
...but on the other hand it was also concise and made lists slightly easier to read if they were just...well, lists (i.e. with no descriptions). Not approved, but not that big a deal.
In on the Kill Taker
Hopefully the artwork will be impossible to screw up now, as long as the drop-down menu's suggestions are taken. I hope they sync to database updates efficiently (i.e. instantly).
The 'add another item' option is WAY better than predeciding the number of items in a list; the new system is much more fluid. Highly approved.
Overall: a worthwhile improvement and pretty user-friendly. Approved.
The Artist in the Ambulance
Update: I added this box after completing the list, just to check for ease of editing. If it looks normal, all is well. Having looked at the finished list, I feel even less critical concerning point #4 - the new style is pretty damn readable.
|Minor complaint: lists still take a while to show up on the front page. Also, I think it's kinda cute that I published exactly 100 lists before the format changed.|
|Agreed with point 4, it can look especially weird if you only have one or two sentences as a description; but, it looks awesome when you write a novel for each Brand New song. I'm torn on the spacing |

Maybe the site wants to encourage longer list descriptions in general :P
"JohnnyOnTheSpot or gtfo tbh"
Be gone. As awesome as other Johnny is, you'll find that I've been here for longer.
|JohnnyK29 is the real mcCoy, my name IRL isn't even johnny tbh so get my fake name outcha mouth Itchy|
|it's like everyone's doing this now|
|aesthetics aside, at least the lists don't seem to be broken anymore. Kinda funny how fixing bugs is treated kind of like a new feature |
|it's like how changing the broken doorknob leading to my garage was like a breath of fresh air after neglecting it for months|
|"Kinda funny how fixing bugs is treated kind of like a new feature"|
The bugs had been around so long they might as well have been a feature
|It looks like they fixed the stupid issue with "?" popping up every time you use either an apostrophe or quotations. VERY welcome improvement, cuz I like to go on rants about albums in my lists =]|
|I knew it had changed; I just knew it.|
|11/10 format agreed|
