I dunno at first I hate changes but then I get used to them. Now I love youtube's new layout. And it loads faster.

Oh my god, why the heck did they change my beloved Wiki bar? *whimpers in corner* I hate all these changes - why change a formula that has already worked great for years?

You completely read it wrong. It wasn't even directed towards you.

some more has changed in the wikipedia layout.

I do not yet know if I like or hate it.

I still see no progress in providing any interface that makes it more useable in reading, NOT editing wikipedia, no way to blend out the 127 languages I will never use, no "repeat search in [language]" if a search in some language did not turn up useful results, and, and, and ....

You don't like it, you can turn it off.
: Take Me Back

If you would like to turn off the new features, click here (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:UserLogin&returnto=Special%3AUsabilityInitiativePrefSwitch&returntoquery=from%3DSpecial%253ASearch%26fromquer y%3Dsearch%253Dhdvb%26mode%3Doff). You will be asked to login or create an account first.

The google interface I like it actually (using google without account)

Gee what's the problem? You can't let the website look lame while everything around is "evolving" .. I agree I don't like the functionality.. but it's called PROGRESS!

Don't really care. I like changes.

Youtube's change completely threw me for a few mins, but I've gotten used to it. I did notice that Google was different, but it seems like a minor change =/

I completely agree. I usually love blue, but TRF is starting to make me hate it. =/

Googles the same for me, I quite like the new facebook now, Youtube is poo :( (I want the old design back :p).

Plus Habbo has changed completely since I was last on it :pi: I hate the beta version :p

Oh No I don't want TRF to change the layout at all! But all the other sites? Esp. YouTube, that's a big no no.

I'll never understand why humans are so upright to change. Personally, I love changes. With me, the same thing over and over again is kind of boring.

Google has a new look?

Phantasmagoria
13-05-10, 21:56
Not anything major. Just a new sidebar while searching. Which has some useful tools.

Hmm...shows how susceptible I am to change. That, or it isn't even that big a deal that some chaps are making it to be.

The entire I Can Haz Cheezbuger network have gotten new layouts...

They just look prettier than before...

Youtube changes constantly....

Whether it's perceived to be needed or not, regular change is good...

There's nothing worse than a company that's stuck in its ways... If something doesn't change then it'll become outdated and fail...

I love both YouTube and Facebook, I can't see how those changes suck.

The only thing that I've noticed with google is the links at the top that only appear when I move the mouse. Other than that it's the same for me.

I've notice Youtube was redesigned and golden-road as well. And when season 39 comes of price is right golden road will redesign again.

Now that you've said it out loud it's never gonna happen :p

psychological warfare has been waged. the question now becomes - am I trying to manipulate the forces that be into keeping the layout as is, because I have stated that it should be changed. OR do I really want it to be changed, but now they think I don't want it to be changed, so in order to thwart my manipulative intents they shall change it. When you deal with a cunning manipulative sob, you can never really be sure you are doing things because you really want to or not.
