Let me know here. Gripes about the design should go in this thread. I am the code monkey, not the design monkey, and while I will proxy your requests over, it is really not my place to make those changes independetly. That said, if you notice something looking wrong let me know. Issues I am aware of :
RSS has some issues - Fixed (Gabe still needs to use ")
IE 5 Mac doesn't look right at all - I have to make a template just for IE 5 Mac as it doesn't support a lot of features.
Server forces page reloads - trying to reproduce
Bullet points are broken. - Going to hand iterate through all news posts soon.
The "next" and previous buttton get kinda buggy a long time ago. - Fixed, though please post if you find broken dates.
A note : Gabe and Tycho use some really old and invalid HTML syntax, and they aren't too consistent about it. I understand it is broken at places, but really, I'm only one man and there are hundreds of news posts.
Thanks guys. Sorry if I've been a bit grouchy, I'm running a bit low on sleep and a bit high on bug reports. If for nothing else, enjoy the speed of the new site, it really cooks.
 What he said ^
Also, the site looks like this in Internet Explorer 6.0.2600 for me:
"Ive seen better days..."
Any examples. This is a good bug to fix.
Same here. Wasn't there also a two-part comic with one half as the "alt" version? I can't remember which one, but it was a ransom letter if I remember right. How does that work now?
I got hung up at around 5/25/99.
Edit: Yes, 5/25/99 did it.
Hitting Next should take you to A Horde of Pewter Treasures
But it actually goes to The Nemesis. Hitting back on The Nemesis takes you to Horde, like it should
It seems like many, if not all comics are doing this. They seem to skip exactly one comic.
I haven't been able to find one that loops again quite yet,
Well, it points to a number of rather old newsposts and comics, and when I click one of them, I get redirected to nowhere.
EDIT: Oh, wait. I see whats happening. It displays the newest post/comic at the bottom of the list now instead of the top. It still doesn't redirect me to anywhere though. (using firefox)
I can't agree with this enough. It's just... why put so much work into making PNGs work when gifs or jpegs will do just fine in this case? I love PNGs (< see avatar), but they're a pain in the ass to make work on all browsers.
ALSO! I just did a random search and found the front page F's up when they use bullets... By The Letter L 05/27/2002
"Nothing to See Here"
Next comic takes you to.. the exact same thing, even the same URL.
Interestingly enough, the next date, as referenced earlier, http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/1999/05/25 is the same comic. Past that you get redirects to 28, which redirects to 31, which redirects to 06/02, which redirects to 04, to 07, and finally to the comic at http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/1999/06/07 "Inspired by the movie", and then comics seem to work again for a bit.
Also to note: none of those redirects are automatic, they're all manual.
Anyone got a similar problem, or is it on my side?
(And I'm not doing something silly like using http://penny-arcade , either )
Edit: Error's gone
EDIT: To give you an idea, my sig is 3.3kB and to make it a gif or jpg of similar quality it was 50+ kB.
Like links to specific comics ( http://www.penny-arcade.com/view.php3?date=2003-04-14&res=l )
or links to specific newsposts ( http://www.penny-arcade.com/news.php3?date=2003-04-14 )
The "Rollover for trailer" flash ads on the comic page load the trailer inside the iframe that the ad is in. Which means you can hear it but you cannot see it.
There are 9 posts in the database that have zero length subjects, this is one of them. I'll dork out a fix for the search results if the title has zero length.
Actually, if you go there: http://www.penny-arcade.com/2002/02/14
The newspost is missing its title. As well as the newsposts for the next and previous days. I don't know what's up with that.
Why do you always pursue revolutionary reactions!?
Because search engines value the page title very heavily, and because the newspost / comic titles are not typically very descriptive, you might get more milage out of a title like:
"Penny Arcade - 2005/11/14 Newspost - News, reviews, comics and commentary on video games and the gaming industry"
