site? I like it here and I am used to it.
participants. All other DUers will be able to beta-test it starting early next month.
See this thread in Announcements, which has screen shots in the OP and replies:
And this thread today for reactions:
There are some things about DU4 I like, but so far I prefer DU3 overall. I find it easier to read and navigate.
I may have to use dark mode with DU4. The Default mode with the white background started bothering my eyes during the time I was testing it early this afternoon.
but then, I am a Senior and changing is hard and I do not want to Beta-Test anything,,,, I'll change when I'm forced to
Im old, so I dont like change anyway. But besides that, I think its very ugly and cumbersome. Even the fonts are ugly. I switched back for as long as I can.
Posting from DU4 now, trying to get used to it. There are some added things that I do like, like being able to rec replies. The navigation is a bit strange. Paradigm shift, I guess. And it's not as elegant looking... but that's likely a matter of opinion.
Not overly impressed at first glance, but then I'm kinda old-fashioned and find it difficult to change once I get used to something.
At least it is via the mobile view.
But I notice the "stars" sort is replaced by a simple # of recommendations sort.
That's what I was missing, I guess.
Overly prominent really.
Again, at least on mobile.
Something in my setup must be blocking it. I'll look into it more later.
last round and I think they got first try on the Beta release.
You just see it on the blank screen.
I renew in February when the hearts come out.
I spend too much on hearts.
So I am out of the summer loop.
to go to DU4? I am one of those people who get apprehensive when things change.
I haven't signed out for sometime now but I do remember my password. I am not signing out.
why am I seeing it and able to reply on it? I didn't do anything to get here, other than click on it on the Latest Threads page.
I find it to be easier on the eyes without the blocks of color, and will probably keep the retro option when the switch occurs.
They were there before but seem bigger on DU4.
I am enjoying the new look and feel!
That's why we end up in the same place regardless of our choice of interface.
I like the new look but I haven't tried it in mobile mode yet. We can rec posts! We can subscribe to people! Very cool.
It is quite different. But you can find things like Cooking and Baking and eBay under Culutrue Forums.
So far with limited success. I really don't like the look of it or the navigation at all. Might just take some getting used to.
One thing I wish they hadn't changed is putting my posts (replies) under "My Stuff." It's an extra click. I liked it as a tab like it was before.
OTOH, I do like the added feature of being able to rec replies.
