You know, when the Flickr makeover came through, I hated it. But I wanted to retain the option of keeping my Pro account, so I paid for it, and decided to give it some time.

Well, I've been using the new Flickr for a while now, and I think my opinion has changed: I hate it even more.

I used to spend time on Flickr most days, checking to see what was in my feed, looking around to see what friends had done, looking at a few different groups to see what was new, checking up on users I didn't want to follow directly, but still liked to see what they were posting, things like that. I find the new layout so mind-wrenchingly ugly and hard to look at that I've completely stopped trying. I only really go there to find specific photos in my own stream, rather than exploring and looking at other people's work.

I find that disappointing in a lot of ways. The biggest is that that was a big source of inspiration for me. I'm still not all that good a photographer, and I get discouraged with my own lack of progress fairly frequently. Going and looking there for new things gave me new ideas for things to try, and I'm not getting that anymore.

and now colour of the bar changed into (yahoo)purple :eek:
to be honest if they made it purple from the start, I think people would be less annoyed by it.

I like it better in dark purple. But I still adblock it. I had to "pause" adblock to see what the new color looked like.

Maybe its just time to leave Flickr for me. I have had a Pro account for many years and my renewal is up this fall and I don't think I will spend the 25 clams again. The site is soooo damn slow (and ugly) that I don't even bother browsing any more. I used to LOVE looking at the "Most recent uploads" from all users and finding the gems hidden in pile of snapshots. That's gone. my Groups page is now a splatter of photo tiles. I used to browse Flickr for 30 minutes a day while I had my morning coffee, but the site I now find a waste of my time because speed is so slow and the layout is butt-ugly! soooo, enough ranting, as we all seem to hate the "upgrades" Flickr dumped on us, but where do we go? I like my groups and contacts and will miss that interaction and exposure, but my time is not free enough to waste while litle balls spin ans more stuff I didn't care to see anyway is "fetched". If everyone just leaves, they might think about ways to fetch users instead. The end!
