Hufflepuff Banner

(no subject)

Livejournal, it would be super awesome if you stopped trying to "improve" upon the site layout. Don't fix something if it ain't broke. Especially when your beta testers are telling you it looks like crap.

I really need to pay closer attention to the way they are fucking with lj, so I can at least put in my disgruntled view before the permanent changes take place.

Also: I'm bookmarking this in case they ever decide to ditch the Dystopia scheme because "adding more complexity at core levels makes it really difficult to design and maintain".

STICKY POST: I refuse to use lj's new profile page.

UPDATE: I've put all my info back in my profile because opaleyes pointed out to me a super neat Firefox add-on that skins the profile pages to look like the old ones! It's not much of a protest anymore, but at least I get to look at my userinfo the way god intended it. ;)

If you're interested in that, there's more info in this post!

Since LJ has unleashed a huge, seething pile of epic douche-baggery regarding "no opt-out" on the new profile pages, I'm opting myself out. The only thing that will remain on my actual profile page will be my friends and stats, since I have no control over them getting displayed. But my info and interests will be over here, on MY "old" profile page. Where I'm now free to have as many interests as I damn well please. :)

The raw code I used is here:

NaNo Reveal

SO, I can't remember if I've mentioned it in this journal or just xlormp, but syntheticjesso challenged me to only check my words once a week this NaNo. So I got to check for the first time today! I did very BIG DRAMATIC REVEAL (in which I look like a dork, but whatevs) on camera for the Internets.
