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. I just updated with how I like it. It's less cluttered than the previous profile page where all the comms were lumped in one huge pile there. It's neat, easier to navigate and much cleaner.
Definitely feels less outdated and more organized :) And finally having everything on one page instead of two is awesome.
It's like so streamlined and whee, I just love stuff like this. Three years on LJ and I only have 906 posts, how blasphemous. Must post more. ^^

Maybe you and I are the only few who like things like that? I noticed quite a few bitching about it.

Have 76 posts to go before I hit 1k but \o/ Nowadays I keep stumbling on flocked ljs so its an easy way to figure out if the person is active or not :)

The peeps who are happy about it will prob not bother posting/commenting which those who hate it will actively hunt for the design community they never paid any attention to before now XD
Ooh, yeah, that's a pretty good way to find out. I didn't even notice.

Pssh, it's not the end of the world. People and their dramas. *rolls eyes*

I wish they'd hurry up with the new userpics slots. I'm more excited on that than anything. ^^
