Submission + - Dice Ruins Slashdot ( 12

An anonymous reader writes: In an attempt to modernize Slashdot, Dice has removed everything that made Slashdot unique and worthwhile and has turned it into a generic blog site. User feedback has been unanimously negative, but this is to no avail, and users will have to head elsewhere for insightful and entertaining commentary on tech news.

Dice Ruins Slashdot

Comments Filter:
  • This is a well written and thought submission. Such great works deserve to make it to the front page.

    • I've been here from the beginning, probably thousands of comments - took me a little while to make an account, but I did get a 5 digit uid.

      This design is the end of the site. It ruins comments and looks aweful on a tablet.

      Actually, I think someone should resurrect the old code in a kick starter and just mine articles off this one and report them. I, and I suspect other, old-timers who have done ok for themselves might kick in enough cash for a dev to run that.

      Dice doesn't listen or care.. Well, we're geeks,

      • There is a new design?

        As far as I can tell, it looks the same way it has for years. I have the old mode setting turned on though. Even before Dice showed up all the javascript bullshit just made things suck. If only you could get the old-mode without actually logging in.

  • They just take things that work nicely (but are maybe ugly) and turn them into useless and flashy garbage -- which is still ugly. It's like these guys have never read a book, or so much as a blog entry, by anyone who actually knows what they are doing.

      The world seems to be wanting to keep up with Windows 8.1 and Apple. Soft colors around matching soft text color to make it all trendy and web 2.5 ready.
  • Let's not shoot them yet. They are still taking feedback on the new design.

      Here's my feedback on the new design:

      Take off and nuke it from orbit.

      Only way to be sure.

      Seriously, half an inch less of horizontal space for the comments and I'd think I was on HuffPo.
