I agree with you on that GG.
I have a 22 inch monitor (diagonally). Horizontally is 18.5 inches. I have 3 3/4 inches of unused space on the left and right side of the monitor. The Blogs and comments take up about 6 3/4 inches and the stuff to the right take up 4 inches. Why do they have all that unused space?????
Hey, I do hope they can make the article/comment page width adjustable according to your browser width. That's the reason it appears to users like the right hand column (with NewsBusted, ads, twitter, log-in/out, etc.) is taking up more room than before, when it's just the result of the site being a fixed-width throughout. I was going to ask Matthew about this, if they planned on changing that.
Also, they really should keep the "Recent Comments" as a list of 10, not 5 (even though they have that new page listing more of them, not sure why they reduced the box to 5...) and it should be in the right column on all pages.
And also, yes to another comment... we should be able to post directly without another clicking step being forced to preview first. Not sure why they changed that. (And was the posting button always "save" ? and not "post" ??)
They'll slowly get all the new kinks out.

And I'm not sure you want to advertise your culpability in this travesty... :p
Be nice. "Any advertising..." as the saying goes. (Okay, now some more ribbing... :p)

..me being nice.
I know what it is like when systems do "upgrades", I am going through that right now at work with TWO systems.
I and others will patiently wait for all this to come to pass. Just make sure it is done by Nov 1,2010. :-)
Well, I do think that's why the NB brass moved the launch suddenly to this weekend, to do some live beta testing, so it's smooth come TAKEOVER TIME :) They first told me early November (sorry, probably shouldn't be making this public knowledge :p) as the launch date... so, I guess they thought, make that the date that it's really running smoothly.
Oh and, FYI, just so everyone knows -- if you don't like the new NB design, blame ME. And if you like it, congratulate and shower ME with praise. :)

Lots of good suggestions on this thread. I for one, am warming up to it. We will be needing access to the old stuff too
Although in the Forums, user info appears to be better than on the main page.

You aren't on your own buddy list, if you know what I mean.
Gosh, I'm such a sweet girl -- I really should be on my own Buddy List...Tee hee. I'd least I'd know that I'd never de-buddy myself. ;)
Well, I'm being forced to watch "The Amazing Race," so I must split for now. Will ya'll fix all this quirky NB formating stuff while I'm away? That would be suuuuuuuuuuper!^_^
"If not us, who? If not now, when?"
Is it all fixed? :)
I'm going to go check out my account. I miss the tracking function...I'm going to be lost without it.
I've been patient for an entire 3-4 hours or so. Isn't that long enough?;)
Not enough time, not near enough I fear
But I was patient for at least a few hours before my last exit! ^_^ Yeah, I need work on patience anyway. :) Okay, I'll give it more time.
I also feel badly. I saw on this forum that it was mentioned to go to Blogs for new comments. I already did know you can track the recent comments that way (figured that's not what people were referring to), but I'm still missing the new comments that you can track from your account -- that was a super function that made it easy to find replies to comments you post.
Again...I remind myself to be patient and see how it all shakes out. I'd hate to be a computer person and have to deal with all this! It'll probably take at least a week to see what it will really be like.
I need to say something positive. I do like the look of the masthead. :)
I followed the "go to Blogs" suggestion too, but it didn't open up any new doors. I'm like you and really miss being able to track new comments from my account. It was like having your own little "history" there! And what's up with these numbered comments? It's hard to tell who's responding to who. I liked the old way where you could see a chain of comments and replies descending down the page. It felt more like a real conversation when it was formatted that way. It "flowed!"
Do you really think it will take a week to see the final product? Well, in the meantime I guess I should say something positive, too. I kind of like the way people's avatars are displayed next to the comments.........kinda.
