UK:RESISTANCE 'main page'
We value your feedback. We haven't been reading any of the comments since changing the template, mind, but we do value your feedback occasionally when in the right mood.

We particularly value this sort of feedback from Tier-1 reader "Stefan".




Which definitely makes sense. So...




The result is a bluer and greener background that mixes OutRun styling with the up-to-date (for us) Daytona USA palette. Hope you hate it a bit less. This isn't today's "main" update, by the way. We are not deluded enough to think that a new background is interesting news to anyone else. This update is mainly to stop Stefan complaining.

Too green. No spurious Dreamcast-alike logo. No Flagman.
But I still love you Zorg, in the weirdest way possible.

my eyes thank you
here's a wee poem to celebrate such an awesome update...

there once was a bloke called zorg
who ran a site like a blog
but then he was assimilated by the borg
and now he rests in the morgue

How am i supposed to tell whether I've clicked the Icon for UK:R or IdiotToys?
It's causing me so much confusion :(

The fade from light blue into dark blue is too abrupt but on the plus side my eyes don't hurt any more.

And who's this "We" you keep talking about? You and the home help that does your shopping for you?

This new background is shockingly grotesque. Epic FAIL!

Stefan, I hate you and will murder your first born using an ice cream scoop. Be afraid!
Blogger Badben said...
I'm not convinced that thing from Stefan was a complaint. Recognising it as any sort of attempt at communication seems generous to me. Anyway, I like the sky more and the ground less. Isn't life weird?

You changed the background?

The green bits are now definitely making my eyes/brain hurt.
Anonymous Anonymous said...
the greens need to be a bit lighter. right now the background looks like an ocean of puke overlayed on an image of blue sky.

hmmm, i made a few nice comments the other day, but then i log on to find this. I thought the site had broken at first.
the stripes are now too overbearing and are a distraction when trying to read!

Why does UK:R have to be greener? I'm sick of all this bloody pandering to the global warming brigade.

Hey Stefan, has the recession killed Spong yet? Hope it does!

P.S. The background now looks WORSE than before. Keep up the good work.

Backgrounds should stay in the background. The old one was a nice accent, this one is distracting. :(
Anonymous Rolken said...
Actually I think if both green shades were made darker instead of just one it wouldn't look so horrifically jarring.

You can tell my comments are the right ones that you should follow up on because I made them.

wait you changed the colours to be more like the daytona screenshots which show up the inaccurate colour emulation? nice
Anonymous Anonymous said...
The new blue is pleasant, but the new green is jarringly stripey. Either the light stripes need to be darker or the dark stripes need to be lighter.

This is shit. The old colours were much better. So much better I can't even put it into words. Fuck off, Stefan.

It's shit, face it, since the 'change' it's been utter shit, it looks like a cheap and nasty piece of crap a 5 year old made.

Not unless you've donated some money to feed Zorg's crack habit in that time.

If Zorg changes back to the old background i will give him all 7 chaos emeralds, and half an hour alone with tranny Lucy Liu.

The Daytona colour emulation is accurate now. And the grass was the hideous shade of dark green Berol felt tip green on Saturn too.

You doubt the Saturn?

I'll have to design my own wonderful background at this rate. And I can't spare the time, what with me recently learning how to read books and shit such as that shit.

it's better than before, but you know what'd be better?

a plain black background.

Failed! He's not going to fall for that shit. Why would the real tranny Lucy Liu talk about herself in the third person? Now we'll never get him to change it back to red. BLOOD RED. The blood of our fallen Sony enemies.

Standards are dropping...
"its" should be "it's" (= it is)
"theres" should be "theirs"
"em" should be "'em".

Honestly, this sort of thing would have caused widespread outrage and condemnation a year ago. Bastards.

Well I reckon it's pretty sharp. So screw you guys. Plus it reminds me of Space Harrier. I fucking love that game.

Seconding making the stripes move. Can we also have the site play a looping short midi file in the background? Just to piss off all the anuses who actually give a fuck about some green stripes, of course.
Blogger Halverde said...
Also the header image needs to be a 3MB animated gif and the whole site needs a full screen Flash splash page to display whenever you navigate to a new page.

It's better than before but I still prefer the red and black though.

Nice. Now that it doesn't have Sonic at the top of the page, I'm not so ashamed of visiting this site around my friends.
