I have been away for a while and that's been the biggest change I've seen it done. I agree with you. To see the login on the right it was weird. I struggled to get used to connect to the right. In addition at first it was annoying that page with all the informations at the beginning (I think now it's gone, because I didn't see it anymore). the only good thing for me, are the images on the right. The latest uploaded images are  magnified. I do not have the premium membership and it's like I regained it. :D (Big Grin)

:juggle:  Whatever...

Sorry to sound flip about it but I've learned that DA is going to do whatever pleases the masses and the masses are youngsters, tweeners and the incredibly gifted in technology.  Not to mention the folks who live a cell phone life and star intently at their palms every waking moment awaiting the latest Lady Gag tweet :flirty:  Everybody else doesn't matter :shrug: 

As far as the layout--it's ok.  I guess.  It's a different look but nothing has REALLY changed--just been rearranged some.  I do like having the -->:star::spotlight-left:AWESOME POWER OF CHOICE:spotlight-right::star:<--  in having that stupid 'collection' widget showing on my page.  I was some surly to find that there when I didn't put it there and set about finding a way to disable it--which didn't take long.  So all is well-ish...again. I suppose.  Maybe.

I guess I'm Ok with the changes.  Either that or my meds are working INCEDIBLY well :iconhippieplz: and it's better than giving in to the desire to bitchslap the DA admins...

No, it's NOT...BWWWAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA! :evillaugh:

Ohhh, Spyyyyyyed!:iconspyed: :slap:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I couldn't open my DA last night and today THERE IT IS! That activity widget! My profile is being pushed to the very bottom of the page. 

Now I can really say what I don't like about the layout: look at the portion of it on the right side - it is pushing everything that other people should've read, to down below until it is almost untraceable. Why this sucks: because the profile page of my friends would be the FIRST THING that I want to see! That's it I am getting rid of this creepy layout! Rage

It's awful, it looks like crap and it's not user-friendly. But dA seems to be ignoring the complaints of the majority of people that hate it. From what I've seen, almost everyone hates it.

I am noticing that I can now see my comments and that I can also hide a comment if I need too..so they are fixing things...except for the layout!

The layout is awful, the old one was so much easier to navigate than this crap. I deleted the activity widget too because it was redundant and stupid. And status updates? I mean this isn't Facebook. They're sellouts in my opinion.

Very confusing and frustrating...It's not "user friendly" at all. I couldn't even reply to my comments this morning. >.< I'm going to start calling deviantart "deviantbook" from now on. Every time I get on here now it's like being on Facebook. D:

Hi Marilyn!!
  Like the majority of the people who have commented here, I don't like it at all as my specific reasons are too numerous to mention!! :(   However I will say this ... why must they CONSTANTLY keep making all of these changes like this?  Just when you get used to s few changes that they make, they turn around and decide to change it again and again!! :confused:  I personally think what they should do it "poll" changes they would like to do for us "paying members" and let US decide what and what not to change!! :)  I myself don't really care about how this all relates to Facebook as this is DeviantArt and should be seen as it's own entity and be run and associated with as such!! :nod:  At least Facebook is free, but it's not the case here and needs to be handled differently and to the liking of it's community!! :nod:
  Anyway ... there's my 2-3 cents about the issue!! :nod;
  :hug:s

Hi Marilyn!! :wave:
  I'm happy that you agree and I do'nt have any real problems with Facebook, but just like DA .... I don't use it the same way as most people do, so that's probably why!! :nod:  I will say though that there are things on there that irritate me as well as there is NO perfect site!! :no:
  Well I'm sure that there will be many that will complain, but really ... what difference does it make?  For the most part, DA has proven (at least to me) that they really don't care and if people like us don't like it, then leave!! :(  Not a very good way to run a website, but these people have it made now and I honestly just don't think that they really care about anything except getting that sub money from us!! :(
