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

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
