It's a rare day I post directly to live journal....

But this doesn't really apply anywhere but here, so....

Subject: The "Comment Page Redesign" is a steaming heap of Epic Fail.

The "Comment Page Redesign" is a steaming heap of Epic Fail.

The elimination of subject lines will vastly interfere with how huge numbers of LJ users use LJ, especially in communities, RPGs, and other sorts of threaded discussions. What possible reason is there to simply remove a useful feature?

The new means of selecting userpics is also catastrophic. It's processor-and-bandwidth-heavy, ungainly, and simply ludicrous on mobile devices.

There is nothing whatever about this "redesign" that improves user experience. This is worse than "If it works, don't fix it." This is, "If it works, don't kick it to pieces, pee on the pieces, and then set fire to the dry parts."

ETA: Captcha!?!?!? Are you out of your flaming minds!?!?!?!?

Anyone needing invite codes for Dreamwidth, I has them. From now through the end of the month, I'm pretty sure nobody needs them. -- This is the only time in several months you'll read an LJ post from me that wasn't actually posted on dreamwidth and crossposted here.
