It's just another aesthetic update...no team debates, no ability to edit your profile, ect. I don't really like it either, and I especially don't like the emphasis put on the opinions section on the home page, which is easily the most retarded part of the site.

Notifications will be nice once they remove the friend feed from it though

So, when we ask Juggle for something (like team debates) THIS is what they come up with?

I'm tempted to leave. The interface here sucks now almost as much as Createdebate.

It's slow and hard to look at...especially that pixelated background and the lousy forum fonts. the homepage is a mess too

For the love of God, debates are completely marginalized by the massive "Trending opinions" piece. I know the opinions section is what gets the most traffic, but talk about quantity over quality.

Also, when I click on a debate, most of the page is just white. You have to scroll down to even view your debate. I want the old DDO back, what was the point of this? Talk about a fruitless gamble. Holy jeez..

And who's brilliant idea was it to remove the message button?

Hell, who's idea was it to remove the sidebar at all after the last update? The sidebar was awesome and amazingly useful, and now its only found when I specifically go to my "account dashboard"

Yes, but the opinion section is the most popular part of DDO. They are a business after all.

Also, I cannot make a post in a forum without it saying "error", then I have to try again and it says "post already made" or something. This is just a mess.

For the love of God, debates are completely marginalized by the massive "Trending opinions" piece. I know the opinions section is what gets the most traffic, but talk about quantity over quality.

The opinions section was still terribly designed, and it is still wholly over-moderated. Juggle should have created a separate site for it, rather than screwing up something that was working fine.

When Facebook comes out with updates (like the timelines, etc.) they are usually pretty cool. Especially hashtags... But the aesthetic changes have severely compromised the user interface. Granted, if I was on a 24 inch computer screen that would be one thing -but I'm on a 13 inch macbook pro. Juggle should have had the prudence to test the site on multiple platforms.

I'm guessing that several thousands of dollars were poured into this update, and I can say with confidence that it was a waste of money.

I'm not disputing that, but it's still annoying to see the most intellectually bankrupt and worthless part of the site being promoted more than anything else. At least make them equal, instead of having a huge amount of real estate devoted to the opinions over everything else

What does the number mean at the top of the page? Next to your profile picture?

Yeah...I got wooed by the modern, pretty banner and color scheme.

But now...I'm really underwhelmed, disappointed, and a little bit upset.

I'm not gonna go as far as to say I quit DDO--I don't think I'd ever leave, but I gotta say this was a step in the wrong direction.

I have never been a worthy Atheist? Look at my debates on the Kalam Cosmological Argument and eat your words. I am not being disrespectful, I am stating my opinion. This new format sucks. I am allowed to state my opinion.

the opinion section apparently brings in the most traffic. Eh, as long as they still keep the debate functions and the forums, I don't see the problem in the opinion sections. DDO still has the best debate platform on the web.

I'd have to agree with most on this one. It looks awesome, aesthetically its freakin awesome, but interface wise, and practicality, it is a definite flip.

And the notifications bit seems to have been fixed. Cheers dudes. The opinions bit isn't necessarily any big deal either. You'd never know, it might even ween more people into the debating part of the site, a less abrasive part of the community to spend a bit of time in first.

It's a little bit hilarious how the attitude dropped from excitement to outrage in a matter of 20 minutes.
