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 Yeah, because previewing and spell check are outdated mechanics that no one uses any more.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.
