Here's an oldie:

Soon after the hubwheel was introduced:

And about 9 months ago:

Until now I was turned off by the hubski design. It just felt overwhelming. Today I visited after quite some time, and was pleasantly surprised. So pleasantly, that I actually joined. :)

Thanks Gomk! It's still a work in progress, but it's good to hear you think we are headed the right direction.

These are great. Do you have a photo showing "columns?"

mk  ·  3124 days ago  ·  link  ·  

I'll have to do some searching. I pulled the last two from web.archive.org, and we had a silly splashpage up when columns were there, so they only have the splashpage.

What were we thinking?

I'll take the blame for that one. But I've made my peace with columns so I'm alright with it now. Boy, people really didn't like that version did they!?

I'll take some blame for that one too. In fact, I think we were all culpable. They looked great, they just didn't function well at all. There's nothing more simple than a straight up "list". I wonder if 9 months from now we will be looking at the current version nostalgically too?

Naw, they looked like shit. I hate looking at any website that does the multiple column thing.

Man, I don't remember the columns. Was this before my time?

thenewgreen  ·  3122 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Honestly, they only stayed for maybe a week. You could blink and have missed them. There's an image in the thread now. Do you recognize it?

Nope, they don't seem familiar. I can already feel confused looking for posts, though.

Thank you insom:
