I have just realised what this whole ordeal reminds me of: The Hundred Flowers Campaign in Mao’s China. People did something and asked for criticism and then got buttdevastated when someone actual critiques them for what happened. Thanks, Kong, for reminding me of a violent regime.

Time for a bug (I think) report: While playing a game, when I scroll over the new tab, the game screen goes black. Is that supposed to be like that? Because I think it’s very annoying.

That happens with games that were uploaded through an iframe — we have to hide the game when the tabs are in use or the game covers them (long story). This is something we can fix on a game-by-game basis but the developer of the game has to implement some code so that will take some time to get implemented.

Now we just need someone to compare it to the Nazis :)

That’s far too easy and overdone, I was being an intellectual by taking the road less walked.

Or, maybe it’s not. I don’t know my fonts as well as I could.

There’s always Stalin. My major in college was in Russian & Eastern European studies and we all know that the Greers are communists. I mean we live in San Francisco.

I don’t mind the new layout much but a few things of note:

- Having messages displayed without scrolling over the name is a must.
- Making the font a bit larger, you need to squint to read it at times.
- having a number of friends online when scrolling over your name
- Having new games featured under the games tab

These are just first impressions.. out of the priorities larger font is definitely needed.

ps. scrolling over the headers refreshes some games but I guess you’re already aware of that.

And what if I want to see how many friends I have? Or ogle the sexiness of my avatar? Or see what level I am? Or see how many points I have?

But Soviet Communism and Sino Communism were markedly different. Mao probably got the closest to being perfect in regards to communism, but he screwed it up due to his general incompetence. He was always a general, not a politician.

Well then only option is suicide.

When I looked at a college prospectus, I don’t think the East European Studies option mentioned “online gaming site” as a possible career choice. I bet they’d get a lot more interest in the course if they did.

Then you get up, go outside, and stop throwing a tantrum because you can’t look on the positive side of this, and all the cool new features that outweigh the cons. Or just learn to accept the change, and grow to like it.

Or at least have constructive criticism, stop pulling an Aioria and hiding your suggestions under hateful words and anger.

You grab your mouse and scroll the cursor over the “community” tab, or over your name.

Or hoping in vain that the admins allow you to switch back to the old version.

I don’t think there’s a chance in hell that they’ll do a full rollback.

What cool new features other than the forum hotlinks?
To us, there is none.

Could you name the pro’s? ’Cause all I see is less useful menus, ugly header and having to do a fuckload more to see stuff I regularly check.

Except most people are hating it because it looks fucking horrible.

The only thing I dislike is the fact that I can’t go to friends page with a single click without hovering anymore; I’d much prefer the user to be able to have a personalized set of buttons to reach the pages they want instead of a drop down menu (I’d personally just visit new games, reccomended, forums, friends and achievements menu, so that’s what I want to access the fastest I can and I don’t care about the rest).
Anyway the change barely affects me. Can someone show me how getting a private message looks like with this new version?
EDIT: Thanks for the answer :D

Someone posted a picture in the thread, they also made a topic about it. I’ll try and find it for you.
It’s basically a speech box over the mouseover thing, with the number of waiting messages.

Edit: Here ya’ go.
