As everyone probably noticed GirlsAskGuys made yet another site update and many people are confused or not happy about all of the changes.
It happened quite a lot since i am active here and it is not up the standards the site originally was when i joined (In my fair opinion ofcourse).
To prevent further harm to the site and to make sure every new idea and feature is tested properly i would like to suggest a separate beta version of the site that people who are interested can use to test new site layouts and features.
On this version the devs can go crazy without effecting the main userbase. It would also be a great testing ground to test new layouts and ideas thought up by the community.
So users would you be up for it? And would you participate?
Admins, could you implement this and do you think this is a good idea?
The ultimate goal would of course be a better site for everyone with only features that have been tested and approved by the users who do not mind testing out these new idea's and who can give honest feedback on them.

A prime example of this is YouTube's cosmic panda layout where users who wanted got shown the new layout while others still worked with the old one.
The Beta site would not have to be a full site. Instead it would be a site where you can navigate and take a look at the sites functionality without it actually being a live working website

I would not see the point in using a beta version, personally. I'd rather stick to the real website and let the devs figure it out for themselves. That being said, what's wrong with the idea of asking the GAG community before making ridiculous changes? I'm assuming it's their user-base that they're trying to please, so why not get their input too?2
