I'll vote like the Quebeckers in the last referendum:

Nyes

What? No pink? I say "La'a" (That's "No" in Arabic).

JJB said...

Deena, there's a little pink in a special place, just for you.

JJB said...

Perish the thought -- I agree with the Quebecker.

Why no?

I don't know, I liked the other template. More creative. This one looks like the basic template used by many dailies - Washington Post, NY Times, Le Devoir - who want to brand themselves as serious newspapers. The New Yorker is more creative than that, and so is your blog. But hey, that's just my opinion.

I agree with fp, this setup seems a little too bland and fails to match the wit that so spices John's blog.
(I leave you to ponder whether or not this is an April Fool joke).

JJB said...

Yeah, I agree, but I was starting to get annoyed by how common that other template is. I think four or five classmates chose it.

For this one, I like the clean lines, but there is too much white.

Thanks for the vote, though.

Stance of sorrow, seat of woe.

A basic readable template is best so I vote for the new look. What's so bad about an aspiring journalist emulating the look of the New York Times, Washington Post, et.al.?
The New Yorker's own site is mainly white.

Black is creative? Annoying more like. Spare me the "creative" black template with lilac type. But then I'm 50 and need glasses to find my glasses.

Okay, votes tabulated. It's a tepid 'yes' for the time being.
