Checking in

Jiminy Xmas, I have hardly posted at all this month. I've just been busy-busy with work and the holidays and really burnt out.

My flist seems in a flurry about the new LJ changes. I checked my current layout and some of my longer-threaded entries, and I still apparently have comment headings. I always feel solidarity with people who are miffed at having things changed on them. In the world of the internet, social networking platforms are our homes, and no one likes when the landlord meddles with the set-up of our homes without asking.

And yet, I hate to see my network of friends split all over the place. For the time being, I will continue to post in both places and take comments on LJ. But I am also making layout changes on Dreamwidth to make my DWJ more readable. If you have a DW journal and we are not co-conspirators there, leave your user name. I am of course masqthephlsphr over there.

Off to do some mindless television viewing. I may be back later with memes.

The real issue with the roll out is how the comment pages look in the site scheme.

I always viewed EVERYONE'S comment pages in site scheme rather than having to cope with their colour choices and different navigation for different styles. Also some style get very narrow very quickly if there is an ongoing comment thread, and by quickly, I mean within 4-5 comments in a single thread, and by narrow, I mean a couple of words across.

The new site scheme is now bigger, brighter, and doesn't have a lot of options, like go to parent, and it doesn't show subject headings. I have switched off the option to view all comment pages in my style (i.e. site scheme), so now I get to see your pretty colours, but colours that work for some people give me an instant headache.

Yes, I get why people are upset and what the issue is. I just get a pain in heart every time it happens because of the reprecussions to my social network from people doing what they feel they have to do.
