On the upside, they did fix the issue that we can now see the last logon time without having to highlight it. I guess thats progress.....right?

2. "like when you click on FORUMS, i can only see half the list" not exactly sure what you mean by that. do you mean you have to scroll? or it just isnt showing up. however, after a change like this, refresh/close browser/clear cookies is always a good idea (im using firefox 11 and just had to refresh). in fact, everyone, no matter what browser you use, should schedule your browser to clear history and cookies once every week or two just in general
3. they can work on gui and other things at the same time. it isnt 1 guy working on it. from what i understand, these small tweeks are being done in their spare time. and while you might not like the new changes, im friggin ecstatic...really makes it easier for me (though in the opg, when you hover over something, the text goes white and you cant read it. not huge, but it is an usability issue)
4. comparing yourself to an abused wife is in poor taste, and not even close to equivalent. you should know better
i like the compact style, for sure, and it will make it easier for folks with laptops (less scrolling). as noted above, they need to fix the white test hover in the opg. also, im not a fan of the menu hover stuff...i think it just gets in the way. they did fix one thing im very happy about - when you are in the forums, when you go to make a search, the text in the search bar disappears when you put your mouse in there. before, you had to select the text and delete it first...that was a real PITA
so, a bit of a mixed bag, but for the most part, the compact design is a huge plus.
im sorry if i dont just reflexively take a crap on beckett and their staff any time there is a change. i have no problem criticizing them (and have done so often), but im not going to do it by whining and complaining. or by making huge leaps of logic or by making huge assumptions about what they are not doing.
there is a way to note bugs. there is a way to note problems. being reactionary isnt the way to do it - that doesnt fix a damn thing
(sidenote: the individual card pages are screwed up pretty badly...can anyone verify that?)
