Just tossing my two cents into the fountain, but I actually quite like the new design! It's simple and clean and I have this weakness for smooth gradients. xD I sense that I'm in the minority though... *hides from bricks*

Also, I think the art pages look much nicer than they did before! The "remove from messages" button is handy, along with the pop-up navigation bar, but I can't find where to add a picture to a collection instead of favourites?

Maybe I'm missing something obvious here, but gotta run to uni... and an Optimisation test that I've barely crammed for OTL :noes:

WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?

haha, at first i hated it XDDD; but I guess, I'm getting used to the v7 ...it's pretty, but i still don't like the art pages :/ I mean, they should leave the menu as it was ... I couldn't find 'browse gallery' link at first -lol- XDDD;

too many changes lately ( O_O ) I just got used to the v6 and it's already v7 *shot* XD

My only issues are that the ads really don't agree with my screen, sometimes cluttering up a picture I'm trying to look at >_< And when reading lit I can't find the button to make that ridiculous tiny text bigger. Or the paragraph button. Or the one to invert the colours (white on black instead of black on white). Which is a shame, because they were really useful for people whose sight isn't that great :( Or else I'm just being a failure and can't find them.

I do love how lit is presented now though. Much cleaner.

Eep, I didn't think about ads... but that would be a pain T_T I hope those options are still available! It took me a while to find where some buttons were, like the collect option (why is it on the top corner?) o__O

Apparently the lit bar is just gone, and they're working on bringing it back T_T The ads seem to have calmed down though, thankfully. God, but the techies are quick!

Aesthetically, I like it. But the fact that it truncates artists' comments (and doesn't even let you know there's more unless you hover over them) and that it PROMPTS you to comment every time you fave a picture just piss me right off.

Whoa, I didn't even realise that about the comments truncation! D: Just goes to show that I need to pay more attention... that sucks. I did notice the comment prompt, which I'm just going to block out of my periphery hahah. I don't get the big deal with people demanding comments with their faves. A fave basically IS saying "I like this!", and either one is a compliment. :|

I remember back when people made a big deal out of leaving comments AND faves... but it's really disappointing to see dA itself getting in on it too ><

I'm actually kind of liking it. It will probably take some getting used to since I already had sort of a routine with the old layout, but I actually think this update is cleaner and more user-friendly. :)

Haha, yeah it seems like I'd just gotten used to Version 6 after all the changes they made back then. XD At least it's mostly for the better...

the only thing that has bothered me so far is that when viewing a deviation now the favorites and stuff is on the opposite side of the screen than it used to be.

Well, I would say I am totally confused with the new layout, but sooner or later I know I will get used to it. The most disturbing thing though I am angry about is that the site is now slower than before. For some reason, when I want to watch a film here on dA, it doesn't work. :/

I think it should be optional, because I still prefer the older over this new version, but oh whatever:shrug:

Oh frick, that sucks. :( I haven't noticed any change in loading times, but I hope the film problem is resolved. :\

It would be nice to be able to choose which version to use, and customise some other options, but I suppose it would end up being too complicated as they keep changing versions. ><

I'll need a few days to get used to it but I like the new version as well! It's definitely a lot less heavy than before. :D

Yeah, I like the simplified streamlining of the design. It'll take a while to find everything again, but it's pretty at least. :love:

There's nothing about it that really bugs me of yet.
Just feels kinda odd and new right now.

Yeah, I just love the way it looks! The navbar is really handy too, especially since I used to have to keep going back and forth when checking out stacks. :heart:

I also dislike the combined messages. Otherwise, I can get used to the changes. :P

\o/ Yeah, it would be nice if it were a customisable option on the navbar, but that would probably get too fiddly to code. :( It just means I have to make an extra click, haha.

The new layout will take some getting used to, but it is a lot more clean cut. There are pros and cons, though.

Haha, I am still getting surprised when I hover over a button and something pops up XD Yeah, there are some changes I don't like (like how the total number of messages combines new deviations + new messages) and the new comment textbox and preview seems a bit awkward, but overall I like the new look. :meow:

the New Look is awesome. A lot/some stuff that comes with is not so much, and I completely agree with your statement, I miss being able to click on deviations only...and knowing how many... What do you mean by the buttons?

My favorite thing would probably next to the icon is that little arrow divot thingy that makes the comments look like :iconsaysplz:

Ah, like the arrow button thingy on the bottom of the art page, that pops up another navigation bar on the bottom. XD

Yeah the little speech bubble is a cute touch! :heart:
