Fugly Alert!
Thank you to txrabbit for alerting me to this latest piece of LJ madness - they're redesigning the profile (user info) page. To see what yours would look like, add this - ?ver=ng - to your usual profile page url, and take a look.

This is mine

Then go here and tell them what you think of it. When I clicked on the comment button there were 24 pages of comments. By the time I clicked 'post' it was 25, and 5 minutes after that I refreshed to see it was up to 26 pages. But don't let that stop you from making your opinion known. Remember, there are 10,466,239 LJs, so that 26 pages of comments is still a tiny minority.

Yes, I dislike the new look that much.

ETA:slodwick has an interesting list of suggestions of things they could be focussing on instead - here. ;)

It's unbelievably hideous and not at all helpful. They cut off the 'friends of' at 150 and don't even count any higher, so you have no f*cking clue how many people are reading you, and there's no 'more details' link to click to find out. I um, may have rambled on in a point by point manner in my comment. I had me a list. *g*

I checked out several comms and personal journals in that style and oh, the fugly! So so much badness. *shudders*

Love the icon!

Very ugly. My eyes *hurt* just looking at it, and I wasn't even looking closely or searching for any information. Ick. Commented against it.

Hopefully they'll at least work on it some more before implementing it. *shudders*

I really think it looks horrible and squished. Very offputting to potential new LJers because it makes the info page look more complicated than it is. And I've told 'em so!!!
