https://slashdot.org/journal.pl?op=edit and https://slashdot.org/journal.pl?op=list&uid=454276 get me Internal Server Errors - don't know if it a site problem or if they aren't going to let them work any more. Unfortunate as I preferred the old interface on those. I've fixed the one to write a JE - https://slashdot.org/journal and the list of journals - https://slashdot.org/my/journal. Losing the old journal list is the one that makes me really sad - the new one has so much white space and scrolling back involves using the "Many More" button. I don't know any way via URL to get back to the start. And I guess the list will just get longer and longer - it doesn't page.
We really, really need a journal export function. They could even put the button for it at the bottom of the journal list - like the one to write new JEs.
Oh my word - and now that I'm on this new JE writing page - I see the little icons on the left. I didn't want this to be news - so I clicked the little x by news. And it didn't remove news - it added !news. what is that???
All right - I'm not going to be negative. Going to focus on that positive -- just surprised that someone thought that was a good design decision.
