Not going back to the old design? Aw, that's a shame.

I sent a PM about the mod draft last month when you posted the same thing. Should I send another one? I'll just do it anyway..

"Yes, change is coming again and no we are not changing the site to the old design." Well that's disappointing.

WTF is this doing on the news section of the GS website. All it is is a bunch of images of people and tweets.

@SavoyPrime I know it may disappointing, but we are working on making the changes our community wants. It seems like we don't take the feedback, but it just takes a really really long time to get the changes implemented. The community team has your back. Thanks for speaking up :)

It's a placeholder move. A separate segment for announcements by the Community Managers hasn't been made yet.

Well, I, for one, personally prefer change - even if it comes with the problems with you mentioned. At least that won't be boring to me.

I should admit that I am probably a lot more patient about site issues than most other people too.

That, and I block any shitty webpage element that I don't like from appearing in my browser.

@Gelugon_baat It was just a joke. Never looked at it as injustice. It ain't that serious. Just don't think the new layout is better than the old. Just my opinion. GS not changing back isn't the end of the world. With IGN, Polygon, etc., there are plenty of other sites to check out and spend time on. Just preferred GS more since the unions were here and most of my online friends. So it's kind of like breaking a habit. GS just helped break the habit faster by creating a new site that isn't appealing to me. At least I can say that I tried to work with it, but it is just annoying for the most part.

Well, I appreciate the humor, but I would caution that though those are indeed movies, they concern what are perceived as injustices being done.

Not everyone perceives the new site layout as an "injustice", I would remind you.
