Interests
...which I find annoying, like the layout change before that, and the one before that. Good thing that dA doesn't build cars, the steering wheel would keep changing places with every new model! It's not that I don't like change per se. But dA keeps on shuffling things around, seemingly without sense or sanity. Like putting the indicator stalk where the gear shift is, while the light switch is now under your seat, to help you interact with the candy wrapper you wouldn't otherwise even know about! My messages always used to be at the center of the screen. Now they are all the way on the right (quite far if you have a big widescreen display). With a big empty green bar at the center. Why? How does that improve anything? Why does my userpage have to be full of seemingly random stuff that I didn't put there? Status updates? What? Is this facebook? I'm sorry, but being grumpy about random changes to things I'm used to is all I can bring myself to do right now...

Quite funny, I sometimes found myself thinking "Huh, it's been a while since dA hasn't been messed with..." but I guess it was inevitable.

Oh well, at least I'm not as pissed as I was last time, back in 2010.

RANT RANT RANT RANT RANT RANT RANT RANTI tried to stay quiet about this until all the bug fixes have been applied (what is beta testing for?), as I'm usually rather conservative with site appearance and structure, just like I'm conservative when it comes to trains and cars. But now, I've read this news article that adresses the changes and the problems, and of course how they are going to set about fixing them.
Before I get to that, here are my issues with the site, namely three in total.
1.) Images aren't displayed in full view but are reduced in size. Great, but why does DA reduce everything to 1024 pixel width when I have a 1920 pixel wide screen? Also, it just makes no sense with pics that are very long vertically, such as comic strips. It is obvious that they don't fit onto your screen as a whole, but it is even more obvious that they're not intended to be displayed that way. So what I'd love is an option, like before, to have images displayed in full size
