Seriously guys, is this some kind of Beta test gone wrong? Surely the top dogs didn't approve the new format (design aside).

I presume this new design is probably more mobile 'user' friendly but it does look rather bland and stripped back at the moment....And the smiley faces over there ---> WTF!

I'll just have to get used to it then.

But my 2-year-old daughter could design better smiley's than that!

Yep. This is the new face of AboveTopSecret.com. I don't like it much either, but clearly, the authorities felt it was a necessary change. Who are we to argue? We're just the peons who unload on this site. We don't pay to keep it up or anything.

It's not a responsive design so not exactly mobile friendly, but they did make mobile versions of the new look.

This is the new look, approved of by SkepticOverlord himself .. he's quite proud of it ( he's said so himself ) .. I don't love it but I think it's a step up. It will probably see some tweaks over time..

There's also a light version with a toggle in the upper right hand corner of the page, but that's too bright for me.

New smileys are in the design stage I have read. The free Co-Co Puff ones over there----->
are silly but help is on the way

I'm not an old user, so I wasn't used to the old look, but I gotta say this new interface is way easier to use by phone.

Its not so much the new design, It reminds of almost an apple Mac thing.

The biggest loss to me is the New Topics menu, Ie New Topics Fire hose and News feeds, Etc. But i guess theirs plenty of other places to hang out again, GLP Forum? LOL

With the upsurge in the sale of tablet and smart phones it is patently obvious that the advertising revenue that helps to pay for this site would be under threat unless it adapted to the new format but I agree the new style is horrendous. still it work's and like the old saying it is the content not the cover of the book that matter's and I am sure we sill eventually get used to it, Eventually.

fontello.github.io...

It's a font

Im not a massive fan of this new design either, but im sure as time goes by it will become easier to get around. I dont know if its a change for the better, time will tell. I do like the new smileys though haha

Those still exist .. there's an icon with a green arrow pointing down in the upper right of the screen next to logout, that opens a submenu .. the new topics and fire hose are to the far right of the sub menu

Personally I have not had much of a problem with the new design, in fact I prefer it with the sizing of pictures, youtube videos and text. I find it more settling and accessible for the eye.

I use the dark setting, the white one is a little heavy on the eye, other than that the only problem I am finding so far is navigating. That's something I can work on, I did it once and I can do it again

Not too keen on the emoticons but I guess it's something I can get used too also. Then again they could be great for expression we just need more of them.

Just my two pence.

When something works, is easy to navigate, looks good and is loved by everyone.,... it's time to change it!

And what's with the childish emoticons ???
