I am seeing a lot of complainy wah-wah threads about the rollout of ATS.5/3.

Like so:

I am not seeing as much positive acceptance or adapting to the changes as there should be.

I like the new look and layout. Anyone else?

It takes about 5 minutes to get used to, and it has more navigation options. I don't use ATS on a mobile device, but it probably will blow the pants off the old version when all the kinks are worked out.

So the emoticons need a little work, big deal. It's already getting handled.

Let's stop the crying and get on to enjoying the site! Happy like this guy:

Since it is inevitable, I welcome any personal attacks as a result of my approval and positive attitude toward the changes.

Ain't that cute.

I like it too. Change is good. Even if there are some SMALL inconveniences during the transition, it's still worth it for overall progress.

"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude."


Keep up the great work, ATS!! (that goes to staff AND members)

Yup.

I like it just fine. But people will complain about anything just for the sake of complaining.
I'd be willing to bet that a good portion of the folks who say they are leaving because of the new format will be back within the week.

Agreed.
It's awesome!
Compared to the other conspiracy sites ATS looks like a luxury automobile sitting next to a golf cart.


Way to go Mr. Overlord!

I think it is far better than the old site. It is easier to use and it looks good too. 10/10.

Change can be hard for us mere mortals....myself included. It just takes time for the adjustment period to settle in and the new norm to be accepted.

I don't really have any problems with the new version...sure, it takes time to figure out the "in's and out's" but that's just life.....change is a constant event in our journey.

For those complaining....I say...consider it a new adventure and make the best of it.

Just my 2 cents


and yes....I'm quite aware of the value of my 2 cents.

Thanks everyone.

It's been a rough road, but in the end I personally consider this my best work.


One request for the dark-side lovers out there. Give the light version a chance.


The original concept was conceived and designed for the light version which is a very subtle very light warm gray, not white, which is the optimal on-screen background color closest to paper (especially for flat monitors). At first it seems monochrome, only because you're used to lots of colors around the edges of content calling for your attention.

But that's to focus on the center -- the content.

Most of our staff who have given it time ended up reporting that they now prefer the light version -- even Springer who was bugging me about a dark version every time I showed a new update to staff.



Step into the light!

I don't mean to sound whiney, but I preferred the old version.

I joined ATS not only because of it's user base, but because it's format was user friendly and right 'up my street'.

This one seems a bit to 'bloggy' for my liking, and the green? ehh.

This box I'm typing into right now isn't so bad - but I'm sorely going to miss the live thread feed in it's previous format.

Hey ho, adapt or flee I will.



Are these really the smilies? aha

Seems more busy in my mind, maybe that's just me, I do have my tendencies.

ETA: I figured it out - it's because the avatar box isn't the same length as the text box, and because the text box is an inch or two from reaching the other, blank, edge of the screen.

I do my own head in some times! lol
