Do you hate the new friends feed?  
The much hated friends feed which will completely render the styling for the friends pages I do obsolete and mean they are just like places like Facebook which do not let you design your own corner of the world.

Go to LJ Releases new update to complain in a respectable and civil manner please.

I also recommend just not using it. Don't switch if you don't have to. I have mine as the older version and refuse to switch. I'm going to just deal with the little bar telling me I'm using the old version until I'm forced. I feel like if we continuing using the old friends feed and ignore the changes maybe they'll take a hint (probably not but worth a try).

I reposted, but I think they'll keep not giving a fuck about feedback. It's INFURIATING, even if luckily I didn't bother getting a paid account.

I have a paid account and I've stuck it out so long that I'm getting really mad myself.

I seriously doubt they are going to give a rats ass too but this way they can't tell us we didn't say anything.

Re: c
Exactly. I don't want another Facebook like account and that is what I told them on their post. It is so frustrating that they're doing this to us when I've not heard one person say they wanted it.

You can change it back to the old one... It's not permanent (yet)
Jill aka Jo: Hug: Happy Leveragesireesanwar on February 15th, 2013 07:23 pm (UTC)
Yes. I don't use the new one but eventually they will make int permanent and we'll be stuck so the idea is to let them know how we feel, en masse, right now. It is highly likely they won't listen but we can't say we didn't try.

How can you change it back to the old one? I accidentally switched to the new one and now I can not figure out how to change it.

Oh, LJ.

This is why I'm still on Dreamwidth. Not perfect, I don't have all the friends I had over here, but a) many of them don't post anymore anyway and b) at least DW doesn't make sweeping unpopular changes and then proceeds to keep them, despite horrible design and buggy features.

ETA: WTF, LJ? I'm signed in, and it's giving me Captcha! I'M SIGNED IN, LAJDKJGIIAL;A!

The captcha is coming up to those who are not members of this community. It helps to prevent spam comments.

Eh, I bitched about it when they first announced this asshattedness & don't expect TPTB to pay any more attention to users this go-round. >:-<

OTOH, on the off chance that they're watching to see if the furor has died down, I left another "DNW Dumbasses". That's as civil as they deserve, if a live human is actually reading any of our comments.

I have to say I love the gif match with this info! heheheheeeee
Jill aka Josireesanwar on February 21st, 2013 02:29 am (UTC)
LOL. Me too.
Flicka Whipfemme_slash_fan on February 19th, 2013 07:01 pm (UTC)
I'm still using the old feed for friends right now... I may well flip my shit if they force me to change to the new one.

LOL well they fixed that didn't they, permanently the way nobody wanted it. Good Job LJs! There's an article somewhere on the net of the owner of LJs saying he really doesn't care what the current users of LJs want his aim is to bring new younger users to LJs.
Jill aka Josireesanwar on June 16th, 2013 09:28 pm (UTC)
Mine is not permenantly the way I don't want it to be. At the top of mine it still says switch to the new verison. If I click it the new version says switch to the old. I'm sticking with old as long as possible.

I'd love to know where that is because I would comment that there is absolutely no reason why I can't turn that option off like you can with the comments pages.
Judith Bartholomewjoyfulljunebugg on June 16th, 2013 11:16 pm (UTC)
oops I was thinking about the profile pages. I found article through somebody ranting in one of the LJs news thread awhile back wish I had book marked it. He didn't have a thing to say about current users except he hopes we introduce younger users to the site lol.
Jill aka Josireesanwar on June 19th, 2013 06:15 am (UTC)
I'm all for young users but they'll want to customize things too.
