Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

Diarylanders Speak Out against New Layout Part 2

Just a few more to add to the previous "other diarylanders who dislike the new look" entry:

Antisocialism and Diaryland's New Skin
Ewww...I strongly dislike this new skin. Is there any way to set it to the other one when you log on?

way to go diaryland.

whatever happened to leaving well enough alone? no one is ever satisfied, not even diaryland. i really hate the grey, black, and orange background i am looking at right now. thank you diaryland for changing after the past six years of being one of the few constant things in my life. i don't even want to write the entry i was going to anymore.

And this new diaryland layout is giving me the creeps.

New DiaryLand (now with capital L)? All I will say is this, to paraphrase the god that is MC Hammer: STOP! Emo time. And I hate the reversal of everything.

I more than kind of hate the new DL members area decor. I'm thinking about leaving for blogger pastures since I figured out how to move my template (sort of..)

i agree with the general consensus that new diaryland sucks, was much better before now its just weird

i hate this new layout. i poo-poo it.

The new Dland layout is disturbing me. It's too black for me. Maybe they're trying to make it more boyish.

this is really annoying.
I hate the new diaryland, its so dark, and so depressing. I don't think I could take too much of this, its all messy and it looks cheap.
I mean the old design was a little childish and girly, but it was bright.
Maybe its just be being in a "mood"

Oh, my goodness, dairyland has changed. What happened to my beautiful orange diary? I'm sorry ladies and gentlemen, my diary has changed.

I am still so distracted by diaryland's new look and now feel that I have to think up a less 'midnight' theme for my diary instead of doing my homework...which basically means that if i flunk my next test - it's Andrew's fault. ..... So I stopped. My brain is so stressed (not necessarily over just d-land) that I'm actually capable of listening to Industrial Techno. It almost needs it right now. It's beyond comprehension...kind of like the new layout. .....Besides, with two devout d-landers now leaving my buddy list due to the inescapable depression of staring at the new layout, I am going to be adding other people who strike me as intelligent, respectable (not necessarily in the traditional sense), intriguing, thought-provoking, funny, capable of spelling, etc. I myself have written Andrew, ([email protected]) and let him know that we really need alternative options to this. Sorely........ But it makes me nostalgic for the old happy lavendar/blue...

Well, gotta go to bed. Enough of lurking in new blog entries for disparaging comments (thanks to the omnipresent new "recent public entries" window... thanks Andrew).

I did get an email from Andrew re my email complaint to him:

Quick note, we are still reviewing the design, and it is probably going
to go through some changes this week in response to some concerns from
certain users, so don't worry too much right now.


You might want to email him with your complaints (though I also emailed him these comments):

expecting the worst

(ps, it always DID have a capital L in the title!)
