one more

to add to the choir.  our song?  VOX, this last design sucks!

many folks, both in and out of my neighborhood have already complained in detail about the suckiness, the lack of drop-down menus, the increase in page views (clicks), the difficulty in keeping up with one's friends and neighbors.   ditto, ditto, ditto, ditto.

what I wish to complain about in detail is something that was not in the beta of this release – so no mea culpas for not submitting feedback on it at the time – and that is the increase in VOX's editorial presence.  instead of one [tig] we now have five [not as good as [tig] thingies].

5x the editorializing = 5 [not as good as [tig] thingies = < 1  [tig]

the old [tig] had an element of whimsy which is missing in the new, unimproved, editorial [thingies]: it was fun to check and to congratulate both your friends and folks you didn't know for their [tigs]. the new ones are hard to keep track of and not as "special" 

the 5 [thingies] are more like the sections of a newspaper:  there is the "Life" section, the "News and Politics", the "Culture" – which up to know has been just about food and eating.  weird  -, and so on.  is too compartamentalized.  how about "Rants"?  or "Bitching"? hell, how about "Sports"?  what happens to awesome posts that do not fit into one of the 5 [thingies]? or that fit into more than one?

to summarize:

VOX, this last design sucks!

VOX, bring back [tig]!
