Site Update

July 23rd, 2007 // 78 Comments

logo.jpgSorry for the lack of updates. We tried to make the redesign a smooth transition but there were a lot more technical kinks than we anticipated. If you haven’t noticed, the redesign is kicking our server’s ass. I asked our technical guy what’s up and he told me that when he opened up the server a family of bats flew out. Go figure. Anyway, we’re working on getting everything fixed so thanks for your patience.

    Your site still kicks ASS. Keep up the good work!

  2. pointandlaugh

    I like the redesign.

  3. chris

    There is NO excuse for lack of posts regarding Kim Kardashian’s ass–I don’t know what to do with myself…

  4. Whats the deal with the flicking of the images?
    Other then that, looks pretty much like before, but then again i just started coming to the front page, so who knows.

    Either way, take your time :)

  5. i’m liking the new design! sucks about those bats. i had a problem with my car and the mechanic said a cat was found in the exhaust pipe. poor thing. i’m allergic anyway.

    GAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY. JK. W/E.

  9. Is it just a coincidence that the nav is almost a pixel-by-pixel copy of apple.com’s nav? Colors, dimensions, text style are almost identical. You may want to ask your designer about that.

    Other than that, it’s pretty classy.

  10. Rob

    Why did you steal Apple’s navigation?

  11. its cool, peeps! this site rox the panties off all the hoes!!

    I like the new digg’s layout

  12. SexyBeach

    I like it a lot, much easier to read, well except when Kellizhottie (aka I type all my s’s with ZZZZZZZZs) is on here.

  13. Binky

    I like the new design.
    But seriously – I think the site needs more ads cluttering the page and more of my 9-11 rants.

  14. Binky

    But then again – there’s worse places than Bikini Beach I suppose.

    ( I think the site may have been taken over by ‘Martha and the Muffins)

    (Crib : Google ‘Echo Beach’)

    no worries dogg…blame that shit on me, Ron Mexico.

  21. Superficial pwns Apple.

  22. nonono

    new design looks good!!!!!! luv ya!

  23. I know iwatchstuff.com is your sister site, but you pretty much just swiped the design straight from there, changed the header image and background color, and turned “So Freaking Cool” into “So Freaking Hot.”

    Don’t get me wrong, I love the way iwatchstuff looks. But surely you could have made the new Superficial design a little more original.

  24. LL

    RE design: eh, it’s a redesign. it looks a little better. The fact is, there are only a couple of ways to design a site in such a way that it doesn’t make a visitor want to gouge their own eyes out. At least most of the text isn’t tiny white type on a dark background, that shit is hard to read.

    As long as we can still get pictures of Britney’s big fat ass, all else can be forgiven.

  25. Italian Stallion

    I say we blame it on Michael Vick, I mean, Ron Mexico too…………..

  26. whoneedsenemies

    Stealing shamelessly from http://www.geekologie.com eh? Wait, it’s the same guy running both sites!
    Exciting…….

  27. Jenn

    great design! what would I do without your posts!!

  28. UH OH

    Heh, I see the next cnet coming up!!!! You need some tagging :)

  29. Hiney

    Hey looks like Apple’s navigation bar http://www.apple.com

  30. HankTheDwarf

    THE BATS WERE LAZY EYED WITH HERPES

  31. HotDogger

    Youse guys still blow worse than my sister.

  32. Is this run by WordPress? If so, I STRONGLY urge you to use WP-cache. It’ll save your server a huge load. It has saved my site many times when I get Dugg or Slashdotted or Farked.

  33. have not noticed any site problems on my end, looks really awesome tho!

  34. kelly

    maybe it’s ALL THE FUCKING ADs that are slowing the god damn site down.

    not that this site was ever on time anyway, you are always slow and far behind the others, but I still prefer it for some reason.

    The “new” site is shit and all the important content is squished into a tiny rectangle going down the screen. WHY do that

  35. kelly

    going down the middle of the screen *

  36. EuroChic

    Your site is so stupid, it’s way too slow….that’s probably because you’re a fat lard ass that can hardly get off the couch and turn on your PC..like the rest of you FAT UGLY AMERICANS! WOO HOO!

  37. JessBlue

    It’s cool. Aparently the server will be the downfall of our society. We will all learn this in a short amount of time, any way, I love your site and love the writers. . .and yes, I did mean to spell all those words wrong and leave in grammical errors. What’s wrong with a bit of style ’round here?

  38. zuzuspetals

    I don’t like this new pink background- it’s too intense. There’s also too much going on now on the front page – can you put it back the way it was, and sue somebody for the heavy-handed upgrade?
    just wonderin’

  39. sam

    man…there were barely any updates anyways…
    whatevs

    Hi – my business is also in websites so I fully understand. Don’t care either – your site brings so many laughs a day between clients and technology for myself and my designers. We all love The Superficial.

    You have truly hit a winning formula.

    Hope to get a client soon who can advertise, although we are in South Africa so the rates may be a bit to high.

    However, I do visit your site a few times per day to get that all needed laugh.

  41. Jenn ?

    Love the new site :)
    Who cares if it’s similar to something else??
    It’s still hot ! x

  42. Telly

    It’s ok no one really reads this site anymore anyway. You guys FELL THE FUCK OFF

  43. kate kunt

    Shit gurl/boi, I just wanna see some mo’ crazy celeb shiet. I fuckain loeve this sieet. You have my support.

  44. Heroes

    I LOVE THE SUPERFICIAL DESIGN!

    My ex husband blames it on the Mexicans (he’s Hispanic) – I told him the Mexicans don’t want him blaming shit on them but he doesn’t listen to me now any more than when we were married.

  46. Murphy

    Please fix the site soon! Work is way too boring to deal with without you guys!

    I just started coming here…but I think it is a really nice design.

    **BREAKING**

    Lindsay Lohan Busted for DUI for Second Time in Less Than a Year

    Tuesday, July 24, 2007

    BEVERLY HILLS, California — Pop tart Lindsay Lohan was busted for DUI early Tuesday in the second time in less than a year, TMZ is reporting.

    The troubled 21-year-old actress’ arrest happened about 2:15 a.m. in Santa Monica, Calif., near Pico Boulevard and Main Street, according to the gossip site.

    Lohan had just checked out of rehab earlier this month and a few days later surrendered to police over a drinking-related car crash she had in May.

  48. Bite Me!

    WTF!!! The Lindsay story has been out for over an hour now and still nothing!!
