The Troubles with the New Look

Anyone notice that if you have Javascript turned off in your browser, Lostpedia pages appear with black text on a blue background? I find it unattractive, but more importantly it's not exactly easy to read. Maybe that's an incentive so you enable Javascript which enables ads, but I find it problematic.

For one thing, if you're a security conscious user visiting from a search engine you probably have Javascript off. Who's not familiar with Noscript under Firefox?

Also if you're looking at Google's cache of a Lostpedia page you get the unattractive look.

This just doesn't seem like a good idea. If you're trying to attract eyeballs why would you do this? Seems like it would be better to provide a good experience in either case. If you want to encourage someone to turn on Javascript why not just add a little text to say your experience will be enhanced with it.

Of course the colors are not the only problem, the layout is terrible as well with Javascript disabled.

I know this isn't Wikipedia.org but their pages look good with Javascript or not.

Just my 2 cents.
