Normally I don't care, but this one is rubbing me the wrong way... >__>;;

I feel lucky that I don't seem to have trouble with lag that most others do - not sure why, though I'd guess it's my computer (which is quite fast).. . There are minuses to balance out any pluses, it seems, even if in fairness there are pluses to the new layout too.

My beef since big revamps.. even after YEARS.. I still don't like this colour scheme. I liked it when it was more of a grey and lighter; that was way back around v.4, and when I look at screenshots.. I think I'd be happier to have those pale greys than the green-greys we have now.

I DO NOT like THIS one. :|
Just to confirm. T_T

Yeah it was a general vote anyway, I understand XD
Lots of people, from what I saw while leafing through comments in forums, notices, journals is that people who liked previous versions don't like this one. So it's not just those who have trouble with layout changes with this one, I notice.

I'm mainly ticked off by the fact it auto defaults to small view on deviations now when you used to be able to change that in your options. :|
And that annoying little speech balloon that pops up after someone faves your stuff saying 'Now write a comment'! I'm personally part of the crew that doesn't mind if you fave without commenting, and I have several stamps to that effect so I dislike deviantart changing my opinion for me. :|
Grumpy face now. :|

Yesss.. that's a minus. :| I do like the new layout for deviation pages in that there's more room for the pictures without the sidebar there.. and that they changed the layout of written submissions to look much sharper/contrasted. But why remove the auto-fullview option? (I miss the search bar, TBH. First thing I noticed was gone.. and discovering it only on the front page reminded me why I don't like to see the front page.)

I just had to try that for myself since I didn't know.. wow. Could be worse, but it's obnoxious. T_T

Yeah, I miss le olde search bar too. T_T The front page is always full of shit no matter whether you've got it set to new or popular deviations... ^^;

Obnoxious is the word, yeah... *cries for old layout*
