Boycott the Caf - New Look, Same Great Taste

If you are a long time reader of Boycott the Caf you may have noticed that the website you have come to love like a pet fish has a new look. We are a lot less gray and a lot more red. After nearly three years online, I decided it was time to redesign BtC. And redesign it I did. Let's go over the features.

Wider Layout

The new layout will fill most of your screen if you use a 1024 x 768 screen resolution, the most common resolution size these days. The previous layout would only fill your screen if you had a 800 x 600 resolution. I turns out no one has had a 800 x 600 resolution since the turn of the century. Websites need to stop being only wide enough to fill 800 x 600. Next time you see a website that is made for an 800 x 600 resolution, raise your fist in the air and yell "Hell no!" That will show them.

New Title Image

The old green and gray title image showed off some of my favorite moments from he first three seasons: Emma's period, Spinner boycotting the caf, Paige hanging out in the bathroom, Sean making out in class, Ashley before her fall, and Chris. Those were the greatest moments when we first began the site. But since then, the show has had a few more seasons and a few more fond memories. The new title image reflects the new color scheme and well the past 6 years of Degrassi. The new title image highlights how 100% INTENSE Degrassi is by showing the most intense moments from each of the first six seasons.

Sidebar Navigation

In the old design, the navigation was near the top. With this new design, the navigation is to the side. This is way fucking better.


A lot of people have sent us emails mistaking thinking we are an official Degrassi site. They have also sent us angry emails because we make fun of Degrassi and making fun of Degrassi is wrong. Now we have a disclaimer which explains that we are not an official Degrassi site and warns each visitor that this site is innapropriate for people who are pricks.
