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

Definitely feels less outdated and more organized :) And finally having everything on one page instead of two is awesome.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. ^^
