On the new profile beta

Add ?ver=2008 to your profile url to see the newest beta. The design post is here.

IMO, this is a big improvement from the previous beta. And I might be in the minority but I've always found the current profile clunky.

I'm trying to keep in mind that it's a work in progress. We might loathe it with every fiber of our being but I do hope peeps stop adding to the dogpile of "OMG, THIS SUCKZ" comments. 'Cause I doubt LJ is just going to scrap the revamp. At least this time round, rather than just forcing us to accept a less than ideal version, they're considering feedback and working at it.

mordyn4's comment was helpful and without the wank, which made me go \o/ - especially since it pointed out things that I'd totally missed.

And while users might hate stats at the top, community mods may appreciate not having to go to full view everytime they want to check for trolls et all.

Ok, yeah, I'd prefer the bio and friends closer to the top. And yeah, all the blue links are killing me (my posting access comms list crosses 250 so *winces*) but if you have any alternative ideas, do share them with the designers. Something might connect with them.

I don't know. I see all the complaints and then think "...and?" Would love to see more innovative ideas or helpful suggestions in the comments. But this is LJ - perhaps the community has been burnt one too many times to really do that.
I was like, oooh, numbered list! Who is this person who posted something so awesome?

O_O. \o\o/o/

Your comment actually pops out because it's one of the few that are actually *constructive* and not layered with hatethis and oldversionisBESTEST.

I expect to see the suck!comments on every post that announces when something is getting changed but I thought there'd be more comments with actual content to them too.

The suggestion comm is awesome and I wish LJ would just ask for feedback over there. The readers at least seem to be interested in improving functionality, design et all - while at the same time very aware of what works well on LJ.

After reading your bits, I was like, MOAR, NAO- sadly, I couldn't find much else. Trying to sort wank from actual critique is too annoying.
