The Troubles with the New Look

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 but their pages look good with Javascript or not.

Just my 2 cents.
