Somehow I just saw this... I cannot get used to the new layout, I don't like the bulkiness of the interface... it is honestly overwhelming to look at. I don't like how I have to click MORE to view the art of the people I watch when it used to just be part of the message center.. I WANT THE MESSAGE CENTER BACK! I hate this UI and I've been here about as long as you have, over a decade of loyalty to this site and now I feel so disconnected -_-
I think they won't listen to this when thousands of users are asking to cancel it. The designers have already done their job. The programmers have already done their work. They have already received money for this work. This has already happened, and no one will want to give them their money back and say " Hey guys, you worked for nothing, people don't like it." And this is terrible.
It seems to me that deviant should be updated, but not in this way! Any site should be modern, clear and convenient, but heck, as a person who makes sites too, I can say that it's absolutely impossible to use. Deviant is very old, and even if the design that we are used to is comfortable, it does not always mean that it should remain so. It works according to the "old scheme" when each page of the site should be loaded separately, when each switching on tabs is a new loading. This is also bad. The Eclipse could be more comfortable and understandable if the changes were made in the functions first, gradually and smoothly.
But, friends, I am still almost certain that this revolt will be useless. I would like to believe that it is difficult to turn around...
This is a general message to all viewers.
I’ve been on the Eclipse interface since late last year, figured might as well bite the bullet, although I really thought they’d wait until dA’s twentieth birthday, in August, to release it.
