Seems Gamespot's designers took a page out of youtube's book on how to design a site.

This new layout is awful, and all honestly, this design should not have never seen the light of day. Instead of making the site easier to navigate, it is a complete pain in the a$$ to do so. Now instead of going to my profile and seeing my friends' blogs and feed now I have to go under the feed tab then select friends' feed even the feed is limited so sometimes the fastest way to check this is by going to each user's profile and going to their blogs. This design makes zero sense. Why make it harder to navigate a site? An update should UPDATE not downgrade the site.

I wish that was the biggest issue, but no a lot of things were removed for no reason. For example now there is no way to preview or spell check a blog before posting it. Yeah, because previewing and spell check are outdated mechanics that no one uses any more. *rolls eyes* Even more annoying is that there is no way to delete blogs (not sure about posts). Why were these removed in the first place? It was also removed from posting comments or on the forums.

I have been around this site for a long time, and I have stuck through to it through some serious problems like bonk!, but this is the last straw for me. I am leaving the site soon which I hate to do since I have made friends on this site that I hate to leave them.

How this design was accepted is beyond me? Any designer or site manager should have enough common sense to see that this design is a mess and never should have been given the thumbs up.

If the unions go, I am leaving like most people that posted in this topic.

The only reason I come to this site is the unions especially after that joke Ducktales Remastered review. There are other sites I can get game news from. I have been around for a long time, and I have been through some really rough times through the years with this site including the severe bugs like being unable to log in, unable to post blogs, or the "infamous" bonk! bug.

I do not even use compatibility view, and the comment section is still blank.

Have you tried using another browser?2ndWonder

I only have access to Internet explorer for now. I have firefox and IE on my laptop but currently I do not have internet access for my laptop.

The comment system was working fine on Thursday for me but Friday is the day it started showing a blanking section for the comments.

Unfortunately it is the weekend, and the tech crew is off on the weekends so it will be Monday before this problem gets reported.

It is affecting also news and reviews where there is a blank section where the comments should be. This is very annoying and hopefully it gets fixed quickly.

For IT/Network professionals this website would be a disaster. This many problems/down time is terrible. (firing people worthy)Flamecommando

Amen to that. Gamespot should have two models of this site an online and offline ones, and every update should be thoroughly tested on the offline site and fix any bugs before adding the update instead of forcing the users to be guinea pigs that are forced to deal with the bugs.

I have been coming to this site for seven years, and this is the worse that it has ever been. I am reaching the end of the rope, and I am very close to leaving this site for good.

Comment counter for blogs is glitched. It says zero comments even when there are comments.

Also will edit/delete comments and spell check be added again? I do not understand why they were removed since they were useful.
