The funny thing is that for all this talk about "We're going to make changes based on your input" horseshit, I would almost be willing to bet that they hired a contractor to do the redesign and that he's already fulfilled his contract and left. I bet that they don't even have the capacity to change the design significantly at this point without hiring a new contractor to do it.

You know what *I* find funny? The fact that Timothy has all this time to downmod ever beta post and up-mod everyone else. I thought he spent every minute of every hour of every day listening to us and our input, working our ways to implement our valued suggestions.

I wouldn't mind the ability the edit posts (at least for a short time anyway). Most sites now support that, but Slashdot still doesn't. Would be nice to be able to fix typos that my shitty proofing missed. Of course the beta doesn't support that (or anything useful really), but OMG Ponies!!

I don't mind a new "look." I don't even mind them adding new features (as long as they don't get in the way or fuck anything up). It's when they start TAKING AWAY FUNCTIONALITY that I get pissed off. I couldn't give a rat's ass if they want to pretty up the beta or add "Achievements" (as if Slashdot were a fucking videogame) or whatever. But when they take AWAY the ability to see a simple list of user comments, with replies and mods, THAT'S what really makes the Beta such a piece of shit.
