i'm fine with it, but the topics could be reduced. I was a fan of increasing them but not doubling/tripling the number. The main change i wanted was a better blocking system which prevented people who blocked you from answering your questions. They've done that, so I feel more satisfied.
It seems pretty basic, but i'm not a huge fan... at the moment I keep hitting 'ask question' when trying to navigate to the recent question page. All the changes don't really do anything for me since none of the previous things they've 'fixed' were ever a problem for me. Plus it's too plain, there's a whole lot of white with very few boxes... I agree with whoever said it looks more like a powerpoint.
As if now, I don't like it! Whole friend thing is gone replaced with following. I also thought that they may add a IM feature like they used to have meebo. I got to meet some pretty cool people that way and became good friends.
Personally, I like it. For me, it's easier to use but I understand that a lot of people are confused. It did take me a while to find everything but the FAQ page explains ALL of the new changes. I would highly recommend everyone take a look. It simplifies it all and makes it easy to see what's new, what changed, and where everything is:) http://www.girlsaskguys.com/faq
