Greetings lovelies. Most of the famous people I''ve meet/seen have been surprisingly short: Sean Penn, Leonardo DiCaprio, Gabriel Byrne, Nicolas Cage, Robin Williams... Have you met any celebs who are surprisingly tall? Honestly, I can''t think of any off the top of my head.\
Tell me Clive Owen is tall. Please.
I met Liev Schrieber. Surprisingly tall. Surprisingly good body, too.
The odious Bill O''Reilly
Conan O''Brien. My father is 6''7 - he''s probably about that height.
Leonardo DiCpario is not short, OP.
Tom Cruise. Everyone acts like he''s a midget, but in reality he''s at least 5'' 4".
The last two are 6''3"; the others are all taller
Christopher Lee. He is 6''4 (6''5 when he was younger and in his prime).
And Tom Cruise is not anywhere close to 5''4". I''ve met him. He''s about 5''8.
Keenon Ivory Wayans and Famke Janssen are both surprisingly tall.\
Ed Begley, Jr is very tall, but that wasn''t a surprise. Just saw him at the grocery store last week.\
The McLovin'' kid is taller than I thought he''d be.\
Deep Roy isn''t as short as I thought he''d be.\
Robert Patrick is pretty tall.\
Ron Moss from one of those soaps is towering, couldn''t believe how tall he is.\
Robbie Williams seemed to be about my height, and I''m 5''11"
R11, Tom Cruise is not 5''8. Even his people don''t claim he is that tall, or other actors who have worked with him.\
He is 5''7 tops.
Was he wearing his booster shoes r11?
Tom Baker (Doctor Who) is 6''3
The only famous people that I know for sure are pretty tall, because I met them, are Liam Neeson and Jeff Goldblum. They both are at least 6''4" though I think Jeff Goldblum may be a bit taller than that.
I was waiting in line for coffee behind Mo Rocca.\
For some reason, I always pictured him being short, but he is a good 6 feet tall.\
Much cuter in person as well.
John Schneider is tall, I think he''s like 6''3\
I used to think Tom Wopat (the dark haired Duke brother) was short, but that is only because he was cast next to John. I actually met Tom (long story) and he is average height, like 5''10.
PS, OP, according to celebheights Clive Owen is 6''2".
The point of the thread is to confirm that they are tall, not to look up heights and simply take their publicist''s word for it.
Not really, R25. I''ve met him, been around him, and he''s not 6''. Very close to it, though. He''s probably a good solid 5''11" or 5''10". And really, Leo''s about the same height as Jake. Ben Affleck''s tall.Matt Damon is about 5''11" and Ben has to be about 6''2". Jennifer Garner is taller than I thought she''d be. She''s about 5''7"-5''8". Aaron Eckhart isn''t tall. He''s probably about 5''11. Christian Bale was a surprise. I expected him to be tall and he''s not. He''s about 5''10" or 5''11". Maggie Gyllenhaal is very tall. She is about the same height as Bale.\
I was shocked at how tall Bill Clinton is. He is really tall. Easily 6''3" or 6''4". Jesse Jackson''s a solid 6''. Pacino is shorter than I imagined. People like Viggo Mortensen and Ralph Feinnes surprised me. They always seemed tall in their movies and they are SO not.
Chris Matthews from MSNBC is tall. Surprised me. He''s about 6''3".
I have seen DiCaprio in person as well and he was much taller than I expected. While I have never seen Matt Damon in person, I know someone who lives in his building and said he was quite short.
TC is 5''4". He wears special shoes to make himself look taller. he is very sensitive about his height. My best friend used to work for him.
David Gregory towers over all of his colleagues at NBC News.
Ralph Fiennes is quite tall.\
Cheyenne Jackson is 6''4" (plus another 7 or 8)
John Corbett is 6''5"
How does someone who is 5''4" and nothing special in terms of looks or talent become such a big H''wood star?
Cheyenne Jackson is 6''2" tops. I see him around all the time.
"While I have never seen Matt Damon in person, I know someone who lives in his building and said he was quite short."\
You knew this was coming, but have you heard from that person regarding what the Damon Butt looks like in person? Thanks in advance.
One of the Damon Butt trolss
David Gregory has a baboon''s face. He''s quite ugly.
My boyfriend Lester Holt...totally tall and dreamy..
Samuel L. Jackson is 6''2
Bill Clinton is about 6''1". I know because I am looking at a picture of the two of us and we are the same height. I am 6''1."\
If he were a celebrity, Tommy Tune would own this thread.
Benjamin Bratt was as tall as Wendy Williams when he was on her show, and that''s pretty tall.
I guess the bigger question for me is why were you surprised the celeb was tall? For instance the earlier Wopat comment makes sense in that he was surprised because he looks so short compared to Schneider. \
But most of the rest is not surprising, merely factual.
Mariah Carey. She''s about 6''.
I think in my case (I''m the one who met Conan O''Brian), it was surprise that he was actually tall, because I had gotten used to celebrities being much shorter than I think they are. It was a nice surprise that he was taller.
Most celebrities have a bigger head to body ratio than normal people. It''s part of why we, the audience, notice them on screen.\
Consequently celebrities tend to be shorter. \
Taller people tend to have a smaller head to body ratio.
It''s not just he anorexia that creates lollypop head - they start out that way
R50, Mariah''s a little under 6 feet tall in heels (I sat next to her at an awards gala three months ago), but only about 5''9" without shoes. Still pretty dang tall, though.
[quote]While I have never seen Matt Damon in person, I know someone who lives in his building and said he was quite short.\
True. He is on the short side. I saw him in a movie theatre once. \
I know we are talking tall guys, but Colin Farrell is a short guy.
"''While I have never seen Matt Damon in person, I know someone who lives in his building and said he was quite short.''\
True. He is on the short side. I saw him in a movie theatre once.\
I know we are talking tall guys, but Colin Farrell is a short guy."\
About Damon, tell us about the Butt in person. Please, I beg of you.
R48, Benjamin was taller than Wendy Williams. I was shocked and I think so was Wendy. She always talks about her height. She says she is usually taller than a lot of the men in show business.
Matt Damon is 5''10. He''s the same height as George Clooney and Brad Pitt.\
Damon looks short when he''s with Ben Affleck, who''s 6''2".
"Matt Damon is 5''10. He''s the same height as George Clooney and Brad Pitt."\
In this picture, Clooney looks about 2-3 inches shorter than both Damon and Pitt, who look to be about the same height. Clooney also has longer hair than Damon or Pitt. Of course, one can''t tell from this picture what sort of footwear they have on. I''ve read that Pitt looks shorter in person than he appears on screen and that Damon is average or slightly below average in height (5''10" or lower).
Barack Obama is not as tall as I expected. Because of his angular facial features and lanky physique he has a "extra-tall" look to him in photos and TV appearance, but he''s only like 6''1 which is a couple inches shorter than me.
Who cares how tall they are? How big are their dicks?
"Who cares how tall they are? How big are their dicks?"\
Who cares how tall they are? How big are their asses?
Butt Troll at R59
Ray Romano is supposed to be 6''2". But since he was always next to Brad Garrett, he looked much shorter.
I saw Donald Sutherland in the Met last year--surprisingly tall, and also surprisingly handsome. \
I''d do him.
Clay Aiken is 6''2" but looked shorter next to 6''5" 450 lb. Ruben.
Mika is very very tall.
Clive Owen is definitely tall. I saw him in NYC a couple of years back.\
I''m 5''10" and he was probably around 6''1" or 6''2". Hope that''s tall enough for you.\
And he is even better looking in person. Photos don''t do him justice. He oozes masculinity in the same way a volcano spews lava. Cameras don''t pick up on that, unfortunately.
And I''ve seen Keanu Reeves up close and personal; he''s around 6''0".
It''s funny that people say Leo is taller than they expected and Matt is shorter, when they''re approximately the same height. Is there something about Matt''s roles or looks that makes people think he''s tall? And 5'' 11" is not below average. Average is around 5'' 10" I believe.
The guy from Glee, so tall. I think he''s like 6'' 4".
R74, Matt is fat and waddles like a duck, that''s why
"David Gregory has a baboon''s face. He''s quite ugly."...with the brain and penis, the sizes of cashews.
Clive Owen is 6'' max - I stood next to him in a bar watching a soccer match (he''s a Liverpool supporter) and he''s my height or under (and I''m 6'').
I think Matt Damon''s build gives people the impression he''s shorter than he is. Matt is stock built not lanky. Affleck is leaner looking and taller, obviously. I never thought Clooney was really taqll. I picture him around 5''10" or 5''11". But Brad Pitt has to be 6''.\
Heath Ledger was tall. About 6''2". Seemed taller because he was lean and lanky.
"Matt is fat and waddles like a duck, that''s why"\
From his movies, I never got the impression that Matt Damon is fat, unless he purposely gained weight for a role like in The Informant. He just seems stocky but is quite muscular when he trains for a role like in the Bourne movies or Invictus.\
Why do you think he "waddles like a duck?" What''s the reason he does that?
Dave Navarro is very short, he claims to be 5''9"-5''10", total bullshit.\
He''s more like 5''5 to maybe 5''7'', the most. A relative knows him, I''ve met him several times. He always wears boots with high heels. not as high as Prince''s heels, but they were heels! He has a huge head. \
His ex girlfriend, actress Money Mazur, towered over him.
That Celebrity Heights site is a bust. Kevin Weisman, 5''-7"? Not on your life. The man''s a Munchkin, isn''t he?
I thought Laurence Fishburne was taller, but when I saw him at a movie theater in about ''95 he was maybe 5''9" or so.
Michael Crichton, the guy who wrote "Jurassic Park" and many other such movie pitches, is huge. He was sitting down when I saw him, but I''d guess 6''10" or so.
IMDB says he''s 6'', but I don''t think that''s true. I''m 6'' and he was definitely shorter than me, 5''10" max.
"Michael Crichton, the guy who wrote ''Jurassic Park'' and many other such movie pitches, is huge. He was sitting down when I saw him, but I''d guess 6''10" or so."\
Dolph Lungren 6''5" Ryan Reynolds 6''3" Chris Hemsworth 6''3" Chris Evans 6''0" Dwyane Johnson (The Rock) 6''3" I''m 6''5" Woo hoo
President Clinton is 6''2.5".\
I know because we''re the exact same height, and I always base my weight on his. If I''m the same weight as he is now, I''m in good shape; if I''m the same weight he was when he was president, I''m fat.
Ted Danson Looks tall.
R11 That''s bullshit! I was standing a few rows behind him at a concert in 2008 and he is 5''4" MAX. I could always tell he was short on TV, but I was amazed at just how short he actually is when I saw him in person.
"How does someone who is 5''4" and nothing special in terms of looks or talent become such a big H''wood star?"%0D\
Tom Cruise isn''t 5''4"%0D\
Seriously, why do people make things up?%0D\
He is about 5''8" - my friend saw him in person and said he is the same height as her. And he was wearing sneakers at the time, not 4 inch platform shoes!%0D\
Indie film director John Sayles is 6''4. And his friend, actor David Strathairn, is just an inch or two shorter than he is.
British actor Dallas Campbell is almost 7 feet tall.
Saw Rodrigo Santoro at a show in NYC, guessing he''s nearly 6''4".
I''m shocked Clay Aiken is that tall. In my head he was always tiny.
Johnny Cash was not just tall (looked to be about 6''3"), but a big guy. His massive stature was enhanced, of course, by the black suit and cape. (I saw him in a hotel lobby.)
Matt Damon is a fatty which makes him look shorter.
R29, I agree about Mo Rocca. I saw him in Chelsea once and he is quite tall and really cute. \
This is no surprise, but Jeff Goldblum. I waited in line behind him picking up tickets and I just came up to his shoulder and I''m 5''10.
James Spader is reputed to be 6''4".
Jesus Christ, you people are slipping!
Bea Arthur, 5 9 1/2" on IMDB, 6'' in person
[quote]James Spader is reputed to be 6''4".\
Not even close.\
I went to high school with him and he''s no more than 5''10".
Clint Eastwood - but I guess that''s not surprising.
Why is Donald Sutherland''s height a surprise? He has been famous for being tall since the 70''s. %0D\
And yes - he has always been gorgeous.%0D\
Betty Buckley and Cherry Joes are noth 5''9".%0D\
Tilda Swinton is very tall.\
Stewart Copeland, former drummer from The Police, is about 6''5".
Still surprised that Justin Timberlake is 6''1". Always figured he was short.
Jude Law looks shorter on the big screen. And the celeb height site is inaccurate.\
Ex: jodie foster is listed at 5''3 when she 5''1.
Holly Hunter is 4''2".
(R110) really? So she''s a midget.
Paula Prentiss is (or was, really) five foot ten. %0D\
Thank you. %0D
The Paula Prentiss Troll
He''s average height, r108\
Ben Browder is 6''. He always looked shorter to me, but that might be because the other actors on Farscape are very tall and wear 2"-3" heeled shoes.
r111, I had to angle my head down to make eye contact with her and I was wearing flats and I''m 5''2". Nice lady, but yes a midget.
Brad Pitt is tall. He always seemed "short" on screen, but he is tall in person. So is Tom Hanks. Also, Liam Neeson is built like a fucking OAK TREE. Same thing with Ben Affleck. Bradley Cooper is tall, but a lot of his height is in his long torso. %0D\
I''ve had the pleasure of seeing them all in the flesh and they are all STUNNING.
Richard Gere (about 6 ft. of pure hotness and a great ass to go with it).%0D\
Jimmy Stewart (even in his 70''s)%0D\
Tommy Tune (at 6''6", even taller than his lankiness would already imply).%0D\
Derek Jeter (you''d think he''s short because all baseball players have stubby legs, and he''s no exception - but they come in a 6''3" frame)%0D\
Geena Davis (6'')%0D\
I saw Matt Damon at my gym and he''s medium height (maybe 5''9 or so) but he''s very squat. %0D\
I saw Gene Hackman on the street years ago and he''s very tall, probably 6''4 or so. Since most actors are short, I''m surprised he had such a big career as a supporting actor. Did his co-stars stand on boxes?
Anyone know how tall Will Smith is?
I am 6''5" I guess you all think that''s tall.
"Matt Damon is about 5''11"%0D\
Sure he is. And Ben Affleck is therefor 7''2". Love these hilarious bullshit heights listed on this thread. Clooney, Damon and Pitt are all short. Jesus Christ, how can you not tell even from photos/movies? There''s a scene in one of the Ocean''s movies where Pitt is walking in a hangar or garage or something and you can practically hear the pitter patter of his little feet. And he''s taking these hilariously long strides like he''s trying to keep up with the adults. They should have added the little pitter-patter sound effect they have on Family Guy whenever Stewie is skittering somewhere.If anything they probably edited out the pitter patter sound from the Ocean''s movie.%0D\
Ever see Interview with a Vampire? Did Pitt tower over Tiny Tommy? Did Banderas tower over either of them? They''re all basically the same height: short.%0D\
Look at Damon''s body type. He''s somewhere between a mesomorph and an endomorph. He''s 5''8" TOPS. And that''s a generous estimate.
[quote]He''s 5''8" TOPS%0D\
R120 He is 5"8 and he tops? Wow.
Ed Koch. Surprisingly tall, maybe 6''3"
I will only comment on the ones I have seen personally. Hugh Jackman is tall, around 6''2". Bill Clinton is about 6''2"-6''3", Heath Ledger was 6''2" and Jakey G is exactly 6''. %0D\
Ben Affleck is way taller than I thought he''d be. Matt Damon is about 5''10. He seems shorter because he is very stocky, not slender built at all. I was shocked at how short Robert Redford was. He seemed like he''d be at least 6'' tall. He wasn''t.
You''re still short to me, R119.
Will Smith is about 6-foot-1. Sean Connery is a giant in person. Same with David Morse.
I''m surprised Jackman is that tall. I didn''t think he was really short, but he always seemed around 5''10 or so.
Martha Raye was 5''11 in stockings
Nicole Kidman and Murdoch''s wife are both very tall. Close to 6'' I think.
"The McLovin'' kid is taller than I thought he''d be." WHO?\
"Deep Roy isn''t as short as I thought he''d be." WHO?\
"Robert Patrick is pretty tall." WHO?\
"Ron Moss from one of those soaps is towering, couldn''t believe how tall he is." WHO?
No way is Gene Hackman 6''4"! Will Smith and he played in Enemy of the State, and Smith was way taller than Hackman.
I don''t know either, R129, except Deep Roy played all the Oompa Loompas in that Johnny Depp movie. Seems to be a tiny Pacific Islander type.
There''s not a single New Yorker that didn''t - between 1992 and 2010 - go by some location where Law & Order was filming. Imagine my surprise when I got to see Jesse Martin and Jerry Orbach getting ready for a street scene. %0D\
Both gentlemen were well over 6'' tall. Seeing gorgeous Jesse tower over the sissies who were playing cops around him kinda made my day.
Ran into Mario Cuomo on E77th St a few years ago and was very surprised at his 6''-to-6''2" frame
133 posts and no mention of Tommy Tune?%0D\
BTW Kiefer Sutherland sure didn''t inherit his dad''s height genes.
[quote]133 posts and no mention of Tommy Tune?%0D\
Read the thread again.
Liam Neeson (sp) is very tall and built like a brick house. My partner is 6''4" and 195lbs and he made him look like a skinny little guy in comparison.
Agree that all "official" actor heights (IMDB, Celebheights, etc. -- anything where actors and their publicists have access) are totally inaccurate.%0D\
All heights are overstated by at least two inches on those sites (and all ages understated, usually by three years, which appears to be the industry standard).%0D\
Not a celeb in the way the OP meant, but former Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker is hugely tall -- 6''8".
Celebrities I''ve seen in the flesh:\
Clint Eastwood -tall\
Donald Sutherland -tall. Gorgeous? NOT\
Tom Cruise- I would guess 5''7"\
Brooke Shields- tall. Close to 6''\
Lily Tomlin-smaller than she looks\
John Schneider- tall and yummy\
Ed Begley Jr.-tall\
I met Keanu. He was tall.
Paula Prentiss...really tall\
Most any Redgrave...really tall\
Kate Nelligan...not so tall\
Maria Shriver...fucking short\
The late Johnny Cash...really tall\
Dolly Parton...really tiny\
Jane Fonda...ain''t never been tall no matter how hard she tries\
Christina Schwarzenegger...see Paula Prentiss. She is easily six foot one\
Al Gore...medium height\
Bill Clinton...already mentioned upthread. truly a tall fellow.\
Candice Bergen...see Jane Fonda\
The Rock...just as tall as he seems but roided up to the point of no return
Keanu is my height. About 6''0". Brad is maybe 5''10". Leo is taller than me. Maybe 6''1". Tom is 5''6".
Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller.
Bill Clinton. I saw him in a crowd on a sidewalk in DC and he towered over everyone there. It was mostly women there, but he really looked unusually tall. ALL the women there were swooning big time, by the way.
Jack White from The White Stripes, I always thought he was short, until I saw the band in concert and noticed he was over 6 feet! \
He''s also much thinner in person.
"Clooney, Damon and Pitt are all short."%0D\
No, they are average. You must be really tall to label average sized guys as "short"
Joel McHale is 6''4\
Chris Pine is 6''1
Maria Sharapova is a giantess. \
Taller than me, and I''m about 6''2".
Godzilla. I always thought he was around 350 Ft but was surprised to find out he was at least 400 ft.
Daryl Hannah. I was at the premiere for "Silver City" and she was towering over the rest of the cast. She could''ve easily used the top of Billy Zane''s head (who was standing next to her) as a coffee table.
I''m 5 feet 2 and they towered over me.
these are all people that i've stood either next to or face to face with, and i'm 5'8. and OMG look at tom cruise's SHOES the next time you think he's 5'7 or 5'8- i used to work as a server at movie studio, so i've seen these people on more than one occasion. one day, i walked tom to his table for lunch- he was wearing these white- ernie and bert sesame street on ice type of sneakers, and he came up to my ears. later that SAME evening, i was bartending at a private reading/screening party for something, and he came over to me to get some water- THIS time, he was wearing black boots, and he WAS TALLER THAN ME!!!!so funny. to confirm those above, yes geena davis, liam neeson, ben affleck, justin timerlake, sean connery, tom hanks, will smith,charlize, gwenny paltrow, maria sharapova, taylor swift, angelina jolie ( my height without heels), yes mariah, but she too was wearing crazy-ass enhancement shoewear- i'm guessing she's really about my height, neve campbell ( my height or a bit taller), sharon stone, josh who's married to fergie? he's TALLLLL and HOT. also, pitt is taller than damon and clooney- damon is the shortest of the three, heath ledger was really tall, and so so so gorgeous when he was young, before he got into drugs, henry cavill, tommy lee jones, james carville and david letterman.
eww almost forgot- larry king. eww.
Jack White is so sexy, it''s great to know he isn''t super short.
Leonardo DiCpario is not short, but he seems short...
Leo is short when he''s on his knees.....wink wink
The sexy tall man I really like is Stephen Merchant. He''s mostly a writer but appeared on, I believe, the UK version of the Office as well as in some films.\
He''s 6 foot 7 and British. Yum.\
He was on Conan O''Brien talking about pissing at the beach, and he pantomined kneeling in the water and pulling his cock out. I about shot my load at that moment.....
It''s been confirmed that Tomasina Cruise wears some sort of lifts inside his shoes. \
There is one infamous photo of him walking in front of Katie Holmes. It was shot at a weird angle, he looks like a little person because she is so much taller than he is! \
The angle makes it look as if he comes up to her chest!
I''m surprised Leo is so tall. Something about him makes him look short. I would have guessed he was 5''8 or 5''9.
Martha Stewart looks to be almost 6'' tall.
David Hasselhoff. Met him way back when at the IBeam on Haight Street. Tight bubble butt, at least six foot 5 striking blue eyes, very nice.
Pee Wee Poundstone
"Martha Stewart looks to be almost 6'' tall."\
Martha did some modeling in her younger days, so it stands to reason that''s she''s tall.\
Her fug daughter, Alexis, actually looks like a tall lanky man!
President Bill Clinton is 6'2. The height of presidential candidates has been the subject of several news stories over the years. Until Dubya Bush "beat" Al Gore, the tallest candidate had won the presidential election over the past several elections. Of course, it's one of those folksy kinds of beliefs with very little, if any, science behind it. One theory suggests that, in the time of television, height became an important issue because the public tends to trust taller people more than short ones. And more people are exposed to the candidates these days.
I find height and the way people perceive it to be very fascinating. You can be dumb as a box of hair but if you're taller than average, people will give you all kinds of chances.
As for tall celebrities, I can't think of any. But I've been to Madame Tussaud's wax museum and was very surprised by the height of some of the wax figures. Since most celebrities pose for their wax likenesses, you can stand next to them and see for yourself how tall some are. Or not. Jodie Foster is tiny as is J Lo. Matthew McBongo is shorter than I thought. Arnold Schwarznegger, Johnny Depp, Mel Gibson, Melissa Etheridge, all very short. Brad Pitt's figure was average height and Angelina Jolie's was kind of tall.
Above, Penn Jillette was mentioned. So also is Teller surprisingly tall - my guess is 5''9" or 5''10". He looks so small next to Penn.
How about Johnny Depp, anyone ever stand next to him?%0D\
Sometimes he looks about 5%E2%80%994%E2%80%9D onscreen, and other times, he surprises me by looking like he%E2%80%99s of average height. %0D\
Bob Saget is 6''4".%0D\
Brook Shields is 6''. So is Geena Davis.%0D\
Howard Stern is 6''5".%0D\
Rupert Everett is 6''4".%0D\
RuPaul is 6''7".%0D\
R160 I think that she was a good five foot eleven or so when she was younger. The last time I saw her she looked to be about five foot nine and that happens when us gals reach our seventies and stuff. So I will co sign on your post, then :)%0D\
Alexis literally looks like a tranny but actually isn''t. I have never understood how that happened. She must really take after her dad or something.%0D\
Someplace. Sometime. I posted in this thread once and cannot recall where. Oh well. Sorry :)
Mandy Moore is 5' 10" (listed at that, and I suspect she may be on the tall end)
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
