A lot of discussions have start for the new look of Mylot some of members like the change and some are upset from it and here I am start a new discussion on the same topic I dont know why, but I have the question above to discuss why member are upset from the new look. In our real life some times we like to have a new look in our shape and that make some of our friends like the new look of us and some don't like, but if you like your new look in shape we will keep it for a time then your friends will get use on this new look and start to see that you are better now than before What I want to point here is this new look will be used for members by time just dont be upset they are working to make our work here easy.

I don know that people are that upset to the new look of my lot. I think they just have to get used to it. I think anytime people are used to things and things are changed abruptly it takes some getting used to. I didnt like it myself at first but I have gotten used to it already and it doesnt bother me anymore. I like my lot whatever form.

I have no problems whatsoever with the new look of Mylot. I actually like it. For a couple of days having it here it is simple that most of the links now are easy to navigate on top. Honestly I find it a waste of time people ranting of how bad the layout looks. I like it no questions about it. Oh but it would be a different story if they get an update from Mylot saying they are no longer paying in their site then that would be a different story! Wouldnt it? Indeed it would be! So it's best for people on this site to think before they say something negative and deal with the fact that it is not worth the time to get mad over a new update because for one we get paid here -- Point made!

Well, I actually like the new look, but I think the thing is--it's a change, and change can sometimes cause shock or surprise. It takes getting used to, therefore, a lot of people want to discuss it. But I'm sure in a week or a month, none of us will even think about how it used to look. It is different, and good at the same time, but it is a change, and change takes time to adjust to. Like with your example, if I see someone looking totally different than I'm used to seeing, it usually takes time for me to get used to how they look, because many times, especially if you've know them with one attribute, like maybe a hair color, and they change it to something totally different the natural response is to be shocked. So I really think this will be something discussed for a few days or a few weeks and that's all.

My problem with it is that we didn't have a choice in it and some of the features we used to have aren't here anymore. Plus, instead of working on the new layout 'they' should have been working on correcting some of the other problems that are happening here. Yes, we will all get used to the new look. No, I don't see where it has made anything easier. Those who like it have every right to like it but the rest of us should have been given a choice. When other sites change their layouts they give users the option to use the new version or the old version. We weren't given the choice and that's what really bothers me.

You are absolutely right and I agree with, they must give us the option to use the new one or not. Tanks for your response and have a nice day.

I agree, they should have given us a choice. I mean this is just too sudden. I cant find half my things. And somehow, I found that the things were better categorized in the old version, like the categories where I found top discussions of the day or the new discussion that my friends have begun, or the activities of my friends. None of them are here. It is just too much isolation.

Way to go on your 100th post, and I agree that most people just need a little time to adjust to the change and get situated.

I agree also...there's always an adjustment period. Some really don't like change and that period will take longer for them.

Hi alkurishy, I have responded to some post but I guess they are not upset( referring to what I have read and responded), We are just in the process of absorbing the new format since I personally used to be well oriented with the old one! But, I know as time goes by, I will be able to get acquainted with and no more delays in my routine..LOL! I know they have valid reasons for making this more friendly user!

The poblem that some people on here are haing with the new design is that everything is different, and now things are hard for them o find. New feature would have been OK if everything else on the site was' re-arraged. It's really annoying for some people when everythig is in a diferent place.

I'm not sure if the new look is better or not yet as I've not had time to adjust much to it. Once I get used to it more I am sure it will be fine. Sometimes people just don't like change. Many people were used to the old look so they might not have been ready for a change, but I am sure once they have a few days to get used to it and adjust and realize where all the links are and such they will be fine.

I think they are upset because they don't want to embrace change. I recommend that they must read "Who moved my cheese?"

hi friend,i think this updating of mylot is better for new members who just join the mylot with no any experience.because of this new look.we can help a lof of nw members to grow quicklly.and i think there is less discussions with zero responses. I think mylot is very humanization to all new members.That is our luck.I think mylot will become better in the future.lol good luck

People in general do not like changing their habits. Especially us old people, we get set in our ways and it is tough to change or else we are just lazy and do not want to. I actually kind of like it though. having a few issues with staying logged in but otherwise it is nice.

I can understand that Mylot has to be improved from time to time. I did not think that Mylot staff have ever to make the website not user friendly. They just want to simplify navigation so Mylot users will hopefully find it easier to navigate. I don't see the reason why some Mylot users are upset from this new look. As for myself I did not mind the new look and I'm just trying to get used to it that's all.

I don't have a problem with the new look. In fact I kind of like it now. What gets most of us upset is that they keep doing these untested, unannounced "upgrades" that only benefit them and make the site look better (which I admit it does) but never will address any of the problems, complaints, or request that the actual members who use the site have brought up time after time. They seem to treat us like just so much cattle who make money for them and then try to placate us by making things look prettier for us.

I think everyone is just upset because it's something new. And lets face it, some people just do not like change. Once this is around for a few weeks and people start to get used to the new look, I doubt people will have much to complain about. However some people may be frustrated enough to leave but I doubt the new look of Mylot is the only reason why they'd leave, they probably have other issues with this place.

I do not know why some like the change while others dislike the change,I myself do not really like the change,partly I think it is because I have trouble accepting changes,it might be in some part due to my OCD,but I do have to admit that in some ways it is better,like the fact that the box you type in to respond is wider,so it is easier to tell how long it is really going to be,unlike when the box was skinnier,and I believe that in time I might be able to accept the changes,and I hope that others will be able to to.

May be because they are not used to the new look yet. After a while they would be ok !

Yes changes are always good, but only if they make things better. It is not that I don't like the new look but perhaps they could have just made it a bit more...... you know, it is too sudden and too different from the old look. The categorization of the old page was far better. I am here for just ten minutes and I am thoroughly confused, lost and a feeling of isolation to my own page is creeping in. I cant find half of my things, like the amount earned or my friends, or discussions that are top today.

For me personally I find CHANGE(especially with software) frustrating you might find that things become more complicated instead of useful however Mylot's new look took little time to get use to and I like it better than the old one now :)
