Works for me.
Well first off--now I see an answer to my question, "Why the hell are they wasting top-of-the-page space?" I don't see three promoted videos in a line; I see two videos and a third one below and to the left, leaving a big hole below and to the right. I agree with @bareboards2, @eric3579, @ctrlaltbleach, @Sagemind, et al. And @spoco2's dissection is spot on. I also have a problem with the crosshatching. I don't know the optical reasons, but the gray on gray crosshatch is like lasers in my eyeballs. Maybe color is part of it? I know the conspiracy tag is completely unreadable to me now. I love this place and remember my fevered consternation when--in the past--the site was down for me. But I've had to go elsewhere recently just because of eyestrain.
Thanks, guys. We're getting there. I'm like @bareboards2 (comment above), I've had to cut back on Vs viewing time because of eyestrain. The font is bigger--and therefore better--but the dark gray on light gray (see quoted text below) is still an eye killer for an old fart like me.
Lucky has tweaked the fonts to make them bigger and more readable. Let me know if this works for people having trouble.
Yes! 49 votes in 9 hours is a very good start.
This really needs to reach number 1.
I submitted this video: http://videosift.com/video/Tony-Kushner-Lincolns-Political-Battles from MSNBC. In the olden days Vs expanded videos from this site it fill the whole Vs video box. This one is leaving empty space to the right and bottom. Thanks lucky, better you than me.
Now that I used it for a while. 1) the eyestrain is killing me. 2) The dropdown list when I would hover over my name on the frontpage was always the first thing I did. I hope that can be brought back. Unsifted videos with the number of votes and comments, and the recent vids too. 3) I miss the list of stats on my profile page. Standing, Ave. Votes per video, and number of Top fifteen videos, Number One videos. They're still there--D'ohh! Thanks for listening.
I hate it when NASA pumps up the hype like a sleazy hollywood hack. But, I hope this one is really good.
