New layout...not feeling it....no, not so much.

This is a tree on fire with love, but it's still scary since most people think love only looks like one thing instead of the whole world. *

Noticed it too.... not sure what I think yet. Usually I just hate change, but I can't decide yet....

Of course I just noticed the MDC Support box... I do love that. Very neat idea!

I noticed immediately that it's different, but I still can't figure out exactly what's changed.

Well, I got so excited to see all the ways I could financially support MDC that I quickly bought my first DDDDC to send to someone and think I may have sent it to myself. So realizing that, I corrected my mistake, bought another, and I still don't see it. Sigh.

How long does it take for them to show up? It's not immediate?

The space feels inefficient, doesn't it? It's wide at the top, and then smushed the rest of the way down.

Don't like it. So say I!

I'm not so fond either. The boxes are all weird too...they overlap each other...

Maybe something is temporarily f'ed up?

I imagine that the extra space on the side is where the google ads are gonna go.... :\

Also, yeah, DDDC's are not immediate

I would guess this is the preliminary stage before the google ads all run down the side.

Am I just really, really dumb? NOTHING has changed on my MDC screen. Nothing. Nothing is squishy, nothing is weird, nothing is shifted....

That's what I was thinking... My eyes were already used to looking towards the left because the old ads were on the right side of the screen...

Namaste, Tara

Nooooooooooooooo! I'm actually finding myself leaning sideways in my chair here. Too, too wonky. This isn't going to get me to support MDC. It's going to get me not to come here so much. It hurts to look at.
