I think that is much more organized, it is probably going to take me a bit to get used to it. But it does cause problems with my favorite browser qupzilla, which I do not like.

Still unsure, but it does need to change and evolve, otherwise DA will become stale.

That's how Facebook has been able to stay relevant to us this long. It's changed and evolved with different trends over time.

wait and see , FB also changed a lot and nobody would come back to the old fashion look ...
I think evolution is crucial

I don't mind the location of the messages and stuff in the top right, that's pretty standard layout really. For me the browsing is more of a hassle, I still don't know how to filter the deviations easily. I don't really need to see stuff that is a year old when I'm scrolling through. The old front page was a lot more accessible if you just wanted a look at what was new. I'm probably just missing the obvious somewhere...

Everyone hates change, give it a few months and no one will give a shit anymore.

No, it pisses me off. I was so used to the old layout. Fuck this shit.

I don't like the location of "messages" in the top rightm nor not knowing if part of those messages are comments/favorites instead of new deviations. Other than that, I don't mind the changes (after taking the news widget out of my profile)

dont really like having to turn my head to look at my inbox. usually where my head is (position and eye line) i can clearly see it. i sometimes forget it has changed and im looking everywhere to see where its gone.

I'm conflicted.

There are some things I like. However, the watch feed, activity updates and the fact all my personal notifications are thrusted into the top-right corner makes me feel like I'm using Facebook. And I hate using Facebook.

Almost all the beta testers disliked it, but dA went ahead and did it anyway. Why?
dA has a bad habit of not listening to its users.
Poor design, much less functional than what we had. Too much like Twitter/Facebook 
dA is an art website, not a social media website. If I want hashtags I'll go to Twitter.
dA has a very juvenile attitude and now seems to want to be Facebook. I'm not interested.
Very bad and unnecessary redesign. Today I will be looking for a new website.

So far.  Kinda caught me off guard as I don't keep up with stuff like this... but It only took me a sec to get the hang of it.

Why they added our lists to the side of deviations, I'll never know.

No.  The lamest part is how the number of messages and such you have are far over to the left yet everything else about DA is geared to looked at from the right.  The "flow" is off.

There's a browser add-on to get the menu stuff back to the center where it's more comfortable to reach: fav.me/d80h7qf
Hope it helps~

But yeah, generally I don't like the new design and find the watchfeed very impractical because you can't choose the items to be ordered in a grid like the other sections and messages can't be removed which makes it completely unusable for me atm. If these things get adjusted, I might use it in the future...
Oh and the automatic adding of he activity to the profiles was a dick move too.

Yeah, that activities thing on my home page surprised me.  I felt like it was an infringement on my privacy (though fortunately this site isn't as personal or about my life as a site like Facebook can be).

You get used to it after awhile, I've had it for about a month (beta tester) and at first I thought it was shite but now i'm just as fast at it as I was with the original.

Re-reading my message, apparently I didn't know my left from my right that night (it was 2 or 3 in the morning when I typed it; I slept for 4 hours prior to that).  :)

It's been a couple of days and while I have not spent a great deal of time with DA, I still don't like it.  It's throwing off my entire groove.  I even have problems trying to find my browser's refresh button.  But as you say, I will get used to it.  It doesn't make it right; it just means I'll get used to it.  :)

Oh no worries I knew what you meant XD 

At first I thought I had changed something in my settings and tried to get it back then when I found out I was stuck with it ;/ I had to get used to it quick, I prefer the old style better as well, and from what i'm seeing almost everyone else does too. Maybe they'll add it as optional in the future :)

If you check out the entire message / journal entry, someone else told me about an add-on that could be installed to move that stuff more to your left but I did not try it.
