How much do you hate the new GAG?

Does it feel like GAG took a step backwards and made everything TOO complicated and difficult? for not reason other than change? fml. I hate the new site.. this is so stupid!

Updates:
I don't think it's complex at all but rather, a step backwards lol.. why the heck would they make something simple more complex? As if I don't waste enough time on this site.. now I have to scroll through a ridiculous amount of topics and so on..

  • Meh it doesn't bother me... why does everyone say it's complicated? It's basically the same, took me a second to notice that they've named a few things slightly different but that's it. Plus the amount of people who were complaining that the site hadn't changed and it needed this and that was just as full on as this so I fail to see the issue. Like yeah it'll take a while for me to get used to how it looks, but it's no big issue. I personally feel like it's been watered down, only reason it seems awkward to navigate is because you were used to the old system.

    • While the format changed, the users remained the same. They're still retarded for the most part. It's overwhelming, but not complicated.

    • That's still down to just navigating the site, no need to take it so seriously...

    • I'm sorry Jonny but I'm pssed that people keep saying "It's not complicated" OR "I have it down now.." .. as if that's why i said I hate it.. I don't hate it because of those reasons.. I hate it because it took a step back.. Plain and simple. It IS more time consuming now and that's not progress in my opinion.. that's retardation.

  • The new layout will take some getting used to. My biggest complaint is that the topics are too expansive. It was better with the old categories, with one all-encompassing "other" category for the random stuff. I don't like the space limits on the messaging either. The lay out is whatever, I just hope they'll scale back with the new over-specializing of categories. It's kind of a project to browse the site now. K. I. S. S. -- Keep It Simple, Stupid. I was joking that it reminds me of Wayne's World when the network bought the show and over-polished it, when it was really better before.

  • I'm not a fan - it's too similar to the tiled look of Metro / Windows 8.
    Also, I don't like the way they lost all the up/down votes on old questions/answers.
    I liked being able to go through my old questions and see which garnered the most responses, and which of my answers had a high number of agreements or disagreements.

  • i don't think it took a step backward. in my opinion it's a lot more modernized. There are a few things i would change, sure... but if I could never prefer old GaG over this. People have a weird nostalgia for things sometimes, but honestly I never had a connection to anything on the old layout that would make me miss it being gone. The few people that I enjoy are why I still use the site. i've taken the time to read all the changes, and honestly I find the navigation quite easy

    • Some things are OK but I feel like things are more drawn out and a waste of my time.. things were just fine the way they were before and I'm all for change but this doesn't feel like progress to me..

    • I appreciate* they* if not all together*

    • I think that may be my biggest complaint... the number of topics.. I used to go from topic to topic seeing what was new but now it takes too long and I don't like that. .. If they could go back to a smaller amount of topics that would be great...

  • It's not terrible, but it is still the first day, and they are fixing errors and working through stuff. sometimes you don't find problems until more people use it and complain. so maybe they will make it better in a few days or weeks. I think that humans just hate change because they hate learning new things for stuff that doesn't matter as much in their life as other things do.

    • If you read any of my other comments you would see that I SAID I LOVE CHANGE.. and would not mind GAG improving.. I just don't like GAG becoming more time consuming for no reason? There is a difference between change for the better and change for the worse. Thanks for your thoughts!

  • A lot. The only real thing I'm ok with is that people can use it on their mobile phones. They should have just made the old site mobile compatible.

    • I thought improving meant simplifying lol.. not taking 10 steps back into "complication island" ugh.. this is so dumb i fckin hate it...

  • I miss the old anonymous pictures. :(

    But on a more serious note, I find it very confusing and frustrating to navigate. But I'm sure I will get better with it in due time.

    • I can navigate just fine but even still, it's way more time consuming.. whether you can navigate it like a pro or not.

    • Yeah I totally agree. Another thing I don't like is how many needless topics they added. I guess too many users on this site complained that there wasn't enough section because they're dummies who confused a dating advice website with a political forum. Now that we have all these topics, we are going to lure all the crazies from every corner of the interwebs

    • I know right.. I'm mad as heck! >:( I was mad at how much time I wasted on this site before.. lmao, NOW.. I'm down right livid!!

  • I actually like it, it will take getting used to. However I like what I see.

    • YES. I hope they change it back..

  • I don't hate it but I definitely think it'll take some getting used to. I was on the original one when it first debuted and it really hadn't made all that much of changes since then. I'm glad they added a few things and changed it around a little. It was time

    • Also, I'm glad a lot of the guru's are no longer guru's and admins. There are some who didn't deserve that title

  • I don't hate it. It will take time to adjust to, but I do like how much faster it is. I, personally, don't have too much of a problem navigating around. At first I was confused and a bit overwhelmed, but now. . . I find it rather nice. Still not perfect, and parts of me still wants the old one back, but I'm going to embrace this change rather than fighting it.

    • Hmm... That sucks. There are several things I would change that I would like back, like character limits in PM's. I do think the number of topics is too much, but I rarely ever use those. I mainly use the most recent instead of a specific topic. So, that change doesn't really bother me. I haven't asked a question yet so I don't know if I would like that or hate it. I do wish we could edit our comments and our opinions. Especially since there's no more "are you sure" step like the old one.

  • Yeah, not a big fan of how it's structured now. It feels more cluttered. I don't like cluttered.

What Girls Said 14

  • I mean, in general I'm totally fine with it. I do agree with most people though that the topics are too much and the layout and navigation are really shittily different so I don't like those. I did honestly like the old layout, etc. more but do I absolutely hate and refuse to use the site anymore? Not at all. There are things I'm not loving and I commented on the question the admins (?) question about our opinions. Hopefully they'll listen to the constructive things we've said. And considering most people aren't happy with those things, something will change.

    • I hope they change things too.

  • The old site was a lot easier to navigate. It's weird getting used to where to go for my messages and understanding what happened on my past answers/questions. It was better having it all right there when you sign in. It's just an awkward and confusing layout. I do like the additional topics, but don't understand what I gain from "following" them, and it would have been nice if they'd be listed above like before, but maybe in a drop-down menu.

    • by the way what do people mean with they can now use it on their mobile phones. I've always been using GAG on my mobile phone before the upgrade. I would have prefered more gradual changes & not so much at once. Like FB it changes from time to time but not so drastic at once.

    • I understand how you feel. If you can point out to the admin what you don't like about it while stressing the strong points of it, perhaps they will put your suggestions on the board for the next GAG experience release.

    • How do we do that & who are the admin?

  • I'm kind of annoyed that my points are gone :/
