yet another post on your flist...

...on the new profile:
  • We will adapt.
  • It's the profile page, not the end of the world.
  • Still, 18+ pages of compaints aren't going to make it go away.
  • Both old and new versions had/have drawbacks. That's life lj for you.
  • At least the profile page is not a WIP of doom and its finally up.
  • Love it or hate it, life moves on.

Generally, I'm much happier with LJ admin/news/heads this year than in the past year or two. At least they're getting things done >_> Am sad the new userpic slots aren't available yet.

Personally I find the new profile more functional (stats, people vs comm filters, '(hidden)' etc.). Gives me an excuse to revamp the bio XD I just like it when sites do revamps (e.g. DeviantART)

ETA: grrliz has an AWESOME post about the new profile that's worth reading.

Son of ETA: If anyone wants a quick glimpse of what the initial beta looked like in July, here and here. You can tell it's definitely changed with time.

Grandchild of ETA: Dug up grrliz's userinfo revamp idea of 2006

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS POST.

I was beginning to think I was the only one who supports the sudden change. ):
LOL. Same here.

I commented on the post and then I saw some of the other comments and got nervous they would swamp me. :P
Ugh, I did have to delete my comment, 4 people jumped on me at once... must have been linked in a wank comm somewhere. Lovely.
Wow, I weep for the LJ community. Considering the nav bar and many other changes that were executed so poorly in the past, you'd think they'd see the differences...but unfortunately, mob psychology prevails in this situation. Sorry you got lynched :(
The bf is mad I didn't stay and fight back, lol. But they were like "you should be humiliated for contributing to this disaster" and "go away" and "you must be the retard who couldn't figure out the old layout".

Deleting the comment was the only solution for me. I don't want that stuff in my inbox and I don't care enough to get in the ring with them. *shrugs*

People really didn't see the 3 times this was in the news, did they? I wish they would go back and reread the news posts before they claim they had no warning. :(
Those comments really don't need to be validated by a response IMO - but they probably viewed your deletion as a victory of sorts *headdesk* But as long as you're happier for it, doesn't really matter in the scheme of things :)

Peeps ignore things that haven't yet effected the way they live their lives >_> And it's easier to see comments saying "NO WARNING" and jump on the bandwagon and claim the same thing.
Heh, that's okay, I don't mind. If the admins keep the new profile layout, regardless of their protest... well, let them squeeze as much happiness from my comment deletion. >:P
Lol, the haterz are just far more vocal really - the ones who like it probably don't get hunting for a place to yell (especially if they don't have the news on their flist)
