I just want to ask if the designers of the new site even thought of putting up a beta site for us users to test the new site on before they published it? How could this disaster have happened? I know I'm not alone in disliking the new site, but I see the latest post in this thread is 5 days ago, and nothing has improved. Have the webmasters deliberately killed this site? I know I want to go elsewhere...I can't even get my news, and it's the weekend. All you had to do was to reinstate the old site from backups and upload the current news. That couldn't be that difficult, especially considering you made this transition, which should have a complete old-to-new data map (just reverse it).
Please get your act together, or I will also be forced to look elsewhere for my news (and more of your ad revenue goes bye-bye).
The new design sucks. I had my color scheme set, and everything ran like clockwork. Now, everything has a white background (which causes eyeball burn), and the entire site runs like a smartphone, which annoys the hell out of me. I have to scroll 5 times as much to see my news, and the option to cluster more stories on-screen seems to have disappeared since 2 days ago. I want less scroll and more control. I want the old site back. This site is as broken as healthcare.gov.
