The new Deadspin format

    It's too busy.

    I just want stories about athletes sending pics of their dong.

    I peruse Deadspin now and again, but ever since the format change I have not visited the site once. It was a dumb change, and I'm shocked that management approved of it. I haven't heard of one person who likes it.

    I hated it at first, but they mentioned in a blog post to give it some time.
    I click the blog view up top and it's made it easier to view; not a fan of the scrolling thing on the right, but after a week I'm accustomed to using it and can't say it's all that bad.

    The search function only worked once for me, after they changed the format. This morning, it wasn't even an option.

    A Deadspin redesign impacts me about as much as a Nambla.com or an Oprah.com redesign.

    So you're saying you're outraged? :)

    It's not just Deadspin. Gizmodo, Kotaku etc are all changed.

    Seems pretty easy to use. Not sure what the problem is unless, like Dyno said, certain functions don't work.

    I like it because every story appears on the same page. No clicking on a story and it sending you to a new page, then hitting the "back" button to get back to the homepage.

    Very simple. Like every redesign, it'll just take some time.

    Format change sucks. Don't care about the top story. Just want a list of news stories I can scroll through. That would also mean the sidebar is useless. Also, the site seriously needs some work. It freezes my work computer all the time. No other sites do that.

    Assuming Deadspin is following the trend of the other sites, this redesign is not panning out for them.


    Desperate times call for the same old measures. LeBron James, your cock is on the clock. Also, anyone who can send in some slutty sort-of-rape videos will be well compensated.

    I've not had any issues with freezing, but not a fan of the new look, personally.

    REAL Sports has a feature on Deadspin tonight; Sean Salisbury's life has gone to shit as a result of Deadspin. Sadly enough, Victor Conte's life is going just fine (according to another segment).

    And, surprisingly enough, Buzz Bissinger considered going to work for Deadspin. And damn, does he come across as a meth head!
