Judging from DDO's drastic new look I am pleased to say that my plan worked to perfection >:)

I went to Europe to meet directly with the Owner of Juggle (Who lives in a bunker in east Munich) to meet my demands to change the site otherwise I would release a bug on DDO so that all who watched any episode of the Weekly Stupid would become my mind slaves.

The overhaul of the site was just one of my demands though and it was merely just to see if my plan could work.

Now that it has, prepare your minds (and butts) for the next phase >:)

(In all seriousness, what the f*** happened to the site and why does DDO implode everytime I leave?)

VP of DDO from Dec 14th 2014 to Jan 1st 2015

The site changes aren't the best, as you may come to find out. This new update was aimed at bringing more traffic to the site (which is an understandable business objective), though a lot of the older members have been pretty annoyed by it. The new site layout seems to be designed mainly to attract attentions to the opinions section of this site rather than the debate aspect. MassiveDump made a pretty witty thread about it called "Welcome to!"

Anyways, while I understand why they did this, and can't really blame them for it, I am among those who aren't too happy with the concept of it. At first the site was barely operable for me on my mobile phone. They made a few changes though it's still hard. I intend to make a video demonstrating the difficulties this new site update has made for people like myself who use android.

For example the head while not so dominating, is only responsive on my laptop. I have to zoom in on my phone to click on the forums drop arrow, and it's hard to hit the forum I want. I tend to hit the funny one on accident when trying to go to games, and the art forum when trying to go to, etc. When I zoom in, the header stays exactly the same, and moves over all the tabs I need to click on so it's barely in reach of my screen for me to touch it.

Anyways, that's my main issue right now. If ClassicRoberts idea for a DDO app takes off, I guess it would solve the problem, but right now it is quite annoying. You also have to manually clear out all your notifications. And you get notified by practically everything, (which is especially annoying pertaining to opinions).
