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

LOL, icon.

At least some of the complaints are from people who followed along with the feedback process, but the majority just never paid attention to the 6 or 7 times that it was announced in various admin comms, including news.

Heh, I can't stop looking at it... :D

Also... thank you. :)
Though there are peeeps who are angry that they left feedback which wasn't considered >_> Still, the majority just went ME NO WANT or ignored mentions of the profile changes till now. Now that IMO is made of fail.

HEE, myrasis is a genius with icons :)

*hugs* Didn't want to add to the flist spammage but...*shrugs*
