deviantART version 7...

Journal Entry: Tue May 18, 2010, 4:15 PM


I don't like the new deviation page. At all.
Those arrows on the sides are very distracting; I thought they'd change it before releasing the final version (yes I tested v7 before).
Also, what's up with that gigantic blue "add comment" button?

Version 6 was great, so why change? Just for the sake of changing? You amuse me, dA.

I'm in a rant mood today.

I agree. This new interface is too complicated... I like the old, old dA more. Back when I first joined. :(

I'm getting used to it, but I don't like it either. I think one problem is that they tried to combine so many things into single places, but, in doing so, only made navigation harder.

i came to read this after reading the filler journal XD yeah i dont like it either, what i hate the most is DA never tell people before they change anything, no warning or option to not change, they just change it if they feel like it. Thats not good customer...

I think you gotta click on the dA logo on the upper left corner >_> But that's kinda stupid.

I so agree with you, it's not only that new look that disgusts me, it's also really... uncomfortable.

Yeah, no, you're right. It feels horribly awkward.

And now all deviations are zoomed out instead of being in their original size when I open them. This can probably be changed somewhere but even so, why mess around in my settings?

Also, the URLs are weird now.

Oh well. Hopefully I'll get used to it.

You'll get used to it, just like the last one. No need to panic. And I'm sure they'll fix all those glitches people are talkin' about. :nod:

Yeah, seems like a whimsical, unnecessary change.

Not only that, but I'm noticing a lot of glitchiness and absurd deviation resizes, and a touch of lag..

:icondoublefacepalmplz: Sigh.

Agreed. It's getting really annoying how often they change things, especially when it seems there's nothing wrong with the original version...

Only thing I don't like is just how dark the header is.
It's sorta distracting, and for some reason a lot more restricting, especially how both the deviations and the journals/comments, etc are both crammed in the same drop-down box.
I liked how both of them were seperated. made more sense that way.

I dunno if you remember but, I once asked that in a poll, I said that these were the things that I hated the most, that and the fact that the search bar is not in the easy way as it was before, like, in my own userpage; you said that you liked it, and that you were already used to it, but now I see that you changed your mind hahaa, and almost every one thinks the same like you ^^

DA wants to be like YOUTUBE and WIKIPEDIA and GOOGLE and <insert other large websites here> because they think no borders, rounded edges, and ~fancy~ effects = a cool layout.

Don't fix what isn't broken, seriously.
