Really. No, really?
You're gonna start a protest just because the site gets a new and updated look?
It's only been an hour since it changed and you guys are still crying about it. Give it a chance, and embrace the change.
So what if it looks like Facebook or some other site like that? That's not the point. Facebook and Fanpop are two different social sites, no matter how they look.
Stop whining and get used to the new look. You may find you like it.
I'm not very fond on the new set-up, and I'm still unsure about if I'll ever get used to it. There's some things I like about the new set-up, but there's other things I hate. Like the club names on the banners, website links on people's profiles are all crammed together and usernames on profiles are entirely in caps lock which makes some usernames look odd. If Fanpop could get rid of those maybe I'll be a lot more comfortable with the new set-up.
But the thing I hate the most is that Fanpop didn't even tell us that there was going to be a change in set-up, they just decided that 'Okay, we're going to give Fanpop a new set-up but we're not going to let Fanpop users even know that we're doing it until we actually change the set-up.' I think they were going for the element of surprise, but I don't think it's worked as planned.
But I'll put up with it and see how it goes. However if I don't get used to it or even warm-up to the new set-up within the next few months or so, then that's a definite sign that I'm not liking the new set-up whatsoever.
1) The banners. The black bit on the left and bottom. What was the point?
2) The spot name. It's on the banner. Why?! On one of the clubs I joined, part of the name was cut off because it was too long.
3) The "interests" on user profiles are gone! I loved reading those. [EDIT: Fixed, but missing some things (Fave TV show, etc.)]
4) Club spot MOTTO is gone! :O [EDIT: Fixed, but in a horrible spot.]
5) They changed "Picks" to "Polls"! I like "Picks" better! Makes fanpop unique!
6) The club search is gone! Noooooo! [EDIT: Back, but in a not-to-good spot]
you cant do anything...eveythings changing...facebook has changed..youtube has changed..im sure loads of other sites have upgraded...i like this new look....its good to have something different after so long
The old look was one of the things that distingush fanpop from other social networking sites n i love it.. Even if fanpop wanted an update... WHY BLUE??? If the green was used n another layout it would be much better..(my opinion)
Every site gets a new look now and then, and we can't change it. Just get used to the new layout, and everything should be fine. If you don't like it, then just deal with it. Besides, think about how much work it takes to make a new layout!
But I like this layout, so I guess I'm okay with it.
I already said I was going to complain about it. I hate it when websites change the basic layout. I really miss the old one... besides, I'm not good at coping with change. And since i'm on this website way more than I should be, it's become like a virtual home for me. I feel so.... so EMPTY
Why can't people just stop hating on the new layout? There's nothing wrong with it. Yeah, so it's different. It just takes time to get used too. The only thing I can say I don't like, is the banner thing.
No - I respect the decisions of the creators and actually sort of like the new layout now that I'm used to it.
The only thing I'd like them to change is all the blue to green - that'd be truer to the original Fanpop! (Plus that's what's making it look like Facebook)
"I" - yes bring the old layout back this isn't the site I once enjoyed they did too much too fast they should have changed a few things at a time and not everything at once. If anything give the creators of the spots the choice to have the title of the spot in the banner or not and we need the black gone it ruins the banners that people put time in to make spots look like what they should and we need the description of the spots back it's what people resort to to define a club and without it it leaves fans wondering what the club is about. I can keep going but the list is endless so plan and simple bring the old layout back please.
I wouldn't mind if it had been changed for the better, but it hasn't. The banners have gone weird, the club mottos WERE taken off (though, thankfully, this problem has been repaired), the ability to search clubs is gone, you can't put your favourite music, or anything like that, on your profile, anymore, your username, on your profile, is in capital letters and there are many, many more problems they have made. I haven't seen a single good change. I don't know what's possessed them to make it like this.
Changes that would have been good:
Being able to become a fan of a comment, extending the search ability, when searching Fanpop in general (e.g. being able to search for forums only etc) and... I had a few more, but I've forgotten them. Aww. :(
But, really, I just wish they'd left Fanpop the way it was.
