Are you as shocked as I am?

We're very happy to let you know that your Friends page is staying! We've heard you about wanting to keep the current version of your Friends page (styled the same as your journal itself), so you can now keep your current Friends page style even in the redesigned version of the site!

-- This URL (http://exampleusername.livejournal.com/friends) will continue to show your current Friends page style.

-- This URL (http://exampleusername.livejournal.com/feed) will show the new redesigned Friends feed style.

LJ's Post

Seriously? They heard us and there is a heavenly host of angels singing Hallelujah! I mean it is a miracle right?

I don't know if this means clicking on the "friend" link on the navigation of our journals will bring us to the friends page or the feed? For me it goes to the friends page but then I refused to switch to the feed. I can access the feed through the link LJ has provided but my friends page is intact.

If anyone should encounter that they are getting the feed instead of the friends page, comment and I'll see what I can figure out.

That fixed it. Evidently, when their previous "switch message" when away, so did the x to dismiss the message, leaving the line.

(I still don't like the fact that the captchas for humans are "enter this line from an ad")

I just went and followed my own advice, in case the gap I'm seeing in this new layout I'm writing was caused by the invisible switch message, and now I'm stuck with the new feed. Which is kind of mixed for me in that I mostly like the new feed, but only the version that shows up with the new site design. And I vastly prefer the old site design, so I'm kind of stuck with the worst possible mix.

As for the change in captchas, up until a few weeks ago it was pretty common to see two or three requests a day about the captchas not working properly. So yay if they switched away from ReCaptcha, boo if it's an ad network in disguise.
