What sucks about my website?

    This is such a valuable feedback Scott! Thank you very much ;)

    Here are a few answers to some of your points:

    • We know it is much more difficult to read on a dark background. Do you think we should change the colors? Our users already connect the dark theme with Failory.

    • Headlines with numbers tend to engage more :)

    • Where would you put the share button? We don't want to bother our readers, that is why it is the corner.

    • I will definitely make filters more visible!

    Thanks again Scott! I really appreciate this.

      • Ha! Never excepted the hits on the numbers!

      • One way to increase legibility is to Increase the font-size and line height. Medium I think is 21px, Washington Post & verge is 18px. Darker background, will make user strain more to read, which is why you don't see a lot of dark sites that showcase blocks of content. Then again, if just me complaining about it, it not worth changing.

      • Regarding the share, that arrow you used is more for a "return" or "exit" then a share button. Usually share buttons have that weird molecule icon or a plus sign. Also, having it in the corner is more out of sight our of mind. This is why you find the social buttons on the left hand side of the article. If you are worried about space, addthis offers you different breakpoints to toggle methods to show it. I would try moving the share options around as an experiment and see what gets more action. http://www.addthis.com/get/share
