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!
How much do you hate the new GAG?
What Guys Said 22
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.2

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.0
they bought a pig in a poke
now all they can do is put lipstick on it
and send haters to comment on critics1
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.1
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 easy2

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.0
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.0
I don't hate it at all, yes it's not perfect, but what is, especially something new at first. In the end I like it, there are somethings I need to get used to though, but a lot that I do like.3
I love it as much as much as I love eating cactus. If you don't see some of your friends on here for awhile, is coz they haven't figured out how to crack the sign in yet.1
I actually like it, it will take getting used to. However I like what I see.1
i dont hate it... new is cool... will take adjusting to however.2
Yeah, it sucks. The old farmstead was much better.0
I was 1000 points away from level 10! Now I've got a long way to go :-(0
I hate change0
I guess you got to let it grow on you. It's alright in my book.0
The new GAG is awfull.0
I don't like it either, I had to create a new account, they suspend my old account.0
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.2

Yeah, not a big fan of how it's structured now. It feels more cluttered. I don't like cluttered.1

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.0
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.2

The new format and just everything about this sucks... I probably won't be getting on as much now... I'm super disappointed and not impressed.5
Sooo much nonesense added it doesn't even work well with the opera mini browser which is what I used with GAG previously. Its soo many uneccesary stuff! Not liking it @ all2
XD I'm mad because My Guru Status is gone1
They had some thing simple that worked good just needed a few tweeks. As for wasting to much time here I'm with you on that one. lol haha0
I'm kind of annoyed that my points are gone :/1
