I guess this is what happens when I go into my hole for a couple months. I come back and everything changes.

Okay, now I work for a web designing company in Washington DC, so here is my take on this "new look". Please note, I am not claiming to be an expert, I just work with some great designers and I am in school learning about design.

THIS NEW LAYOUT IS VERY CONFUSING!

I don't know who redesigned this, but there is WAY TOO much information being thrown at you all at once. The mechanics of this web site are annoying and not very inviting to come back. In fact, after being lost for 15 minutes, I probably will not return.

This is what sucks:
1. The text is excessively small on the navigation bar, even displayed on my 19-inch flat screen monitor

2. The main things that people want to find is not out in the open. Cough…cough… like directions for old Garage Glamour people, how to update your profile, and etc.

3. The purpose of this site is not displayed. Being a new viewer, I don't know if it's still a portfolio site or just an elaborate forum board.

4. It seems like someone who likes to talk a lot decided to just publish it on a web site. Does someone need a shrink to listen to them or do they find it okay to just post all of their "blah blah blah" on the main page with absolutely no substance, point, or relevant information to the sites purpose?

5. This site needs an editor to delete the pointless content that over-shadows the important content.

6. Simple is better than abundant. If the site has substance, it'll sell itself. If it's flooded with useless stuff, it will drive people away.

Can you see me driving away!? Here I go! No money from me!

Welcome back. Love the playful pinups in your portfolio.

As for the new layout ... I tend to agree. But it isn't our sandbox. It's cleaner and brighter feeling now, at least.

Good points, but after the first week on the new G1 I have little to complain about. It's non-linear format is pretty neat-o. It takes time for people to understand GMAIL coming from HOTMAIL or YAHOOMail etc...

there are several threads started about this subject.
the site managers have explained a few things in detail that might be worth reading.
there has also been a thread started to vote on the new layout.


on another positive note, rolando has been very open to feedback to improve the site and many changes are made every day.

Alot of your questions and concerns have been answered and/or brought up and discussed in previous forums.
Everyone gets frusterated with the new layout at first, but there are so many things this site has to offer that you will be pleased with, if you give it a chance. We hope you dont go!

welcome back!

I'm hooked I like the new site already don't want it to go back. There are a few features we had I would like to see again, but it's all good.


Where were you at last year?
Your a very good addition.

Angelique, relax please, this site is still evolving and many of us are going along because we think a change is good. I think that people at first impression may be confused, but again the site is not designed for an average surfer of the web, this is for folks who have some knowledge not only of photography but also web design. I do agree with you on one point, site should be simple to navigate in whenever possible. Consider the fact that this is not just simple informational site, it involves portfolios management and various forums as well as some advertising. Those who will learn the resourceful site correctly will benefit more than those who leave it and go elsewhere. It's not that difficult to be patient and learn as your go. Thanks

corn fed?!? what!!! j/k thanks for the compliments!
This site has been the best yet, to learn and make contacts and friends, view other images, and get feedback on my images, while learning from other peoples posts...all with the added bonus of portfolios and contests. (which I could still use more votes in..)
okay okay...I am done writing a novel.

I completely agree... With all of the changes - I got lost... Completely lost... Admitedly it's probably the operator and not the program on my side... but I still want to complain about being lost... I have no sense of cyber-direction... actually, I have no sense of direction what-so-ever... but that's besides the point... The site's too confusing for simpleton people like myself... Technically Chinese people are supposed to be good with this computer program stuff... but nope... not me...No, I have to be the one short-bus special member.
