"The design team put hundreds of hours into this redesign, with a marathon three rounds of beta testing"

Really?

Because if you were working for me and you told me you'd put hundreds of hours into that piece of crap, you'd find yourself looking for a new job.

But then I'm not on the strategic vision team for LiveJournal. I guess the wave of the future is returning to simplistic crap from the early years of the Internet.

Except if it were simplistic crap from the early years of the internet, the design would be clean and it would load quickly.

This is true. People thought in terms of what loads quickly when we were all on dialup.

You really get the idea someone is trying to compete with Facebook or something which makes me shudder to think of the future of LJ.

the interface of Facebook is just appalling!

you know, one of the most attractive social sites i've seen/used, is Virb, but it is not very popular.

*sigh*

Remember the good ole days when LJ wasn't very popular?

Their beta testing seemed to be "we'll put up a page asking for comments which we will then completely ignore and then act surprised when everyone explodes."

I have mixed feelings about the design. I like everything from Bio on down. I hate the top. I told them this. They did nothing to it.

Clonky, unappealing design seems to be the current Wave of the Internet (see also: Facebook, Banner). It needs to end now. And people need to stop using Flash for every little thing.

Or hows about just giving us a choice to use the "classic" design or the new one. Facebook really blows. I should start my own journaling service.
