ha ha ha ha that's called 'comfort zone' we get used to something and begin liking it thus getting into a comfort zone i.e. fixation too.
It's only human to resist change which is exactly what happened to a lot of us when GAG changed the first time and now again :)
There really is nothing uncomfortable about this change too I think except that it opens up a new tab everytime you click on something lol which again is not that much of a bother I guess.
However, one thing is for sure that a lot of new and good features are being introduced, recommendations being taken into consideration which is laudable :)
Too much aesthetic change is amusing me alright like I'd liked the side by side girls & guys opinions rather than having to scroll lengths but seems GAG has reverted to the older format to keep some users happy lol and they are complaining again lololol - cute :D
I realize the old classic design was showing its age. Even so, this new and ever-evolving format is very confusing to navigate. I liked having a left side for girls' comments and a right side for the guys. Now, they're back to one on top and the other on the bottom. (No innuendo intended.) I'm not ready to quit, but I feel it'll be tough for them to find a design everyone likes.
Not so much the format as all the crap they're letting slide currently. Maybe they should focus on regulating some more things/behavior and making this a little less ridiculous rather than making awful designs. The tabs are driving me nuts, though:)
