New Format

LJ just rearranged itself. I half-approved while I'm half annoyed. I'll figure out where things are soon enough. If I can change between 10 operating systems, I can handle this.

What I can't do yet is control how my Friends feed looks. That irks me. It might just be me being unable to find that, or it may get implemented at a later day. It'll show or it won't.

So, my friends, I go fearlessly into the future.

If you figure it out, let me know. I switched back to the old system so I could find my friends' posts.

Everything is in the top menu now.

Your brain goes spin when presented with something new because it has some pretty deep habits connected to LJ. My brain went spin, too. Total cognitive dislocation. It's a natural cognitive reaction. I know that that goes on. It wants to KNOW the answer, not figure out the answer.

Take a deep breath. This is just like getting into a new car where you need to figure out where everything is.

Slow down. Your brain spinning has nothing to do with the site layout.

Read the menu bar above. It's a menu bar like any other. It contains items. Read through them. I know that I'm sounding pedantic, but this is exactly what I had to tell myself. You just need to remap locations in your head. All the meanings have stayed the same.

Yeah, I had a popup come up when I first logged in today from the Info page, and the tiny print at the bottom says "revert to old version", and pressing that worked. Well, for now, anyway. They try this crap periodically. :/

I blame Russia! XD

I've was installing and testing apps on different operating systems. I was in exactly the right frame of mind to say, "dive in."

They've done some nice stuff, including some handy functionality improvements. I'd say it's 75% right, 15% wash, and 10% worse. Your brain finds the different and worse first because that's what brains do.
