#10601904 CAG 3.0 Upgrade - News, Updates And Progress - Dark Theme, Feedback are Live...

I must say, it's really amazing how much a simple color scheme can effect ones view on something. It's really like night and day. Site looks fantastic with the Dark Theme. Now it's starting to feel like CAG again.

I absolutely hate this. I'm not saying that because I "dislike" change, but because this new layout is terrible. 

CAG felt like, as someone else pointed out, "homey". It felt different. It felt like CAG.

This feels like it's trying to be just like every other website now. Especially with how everyone's distinctive identity on the old site easily set us apart. Now, it just feels like all of that is lost. It's like CAG just lost it's soul. I've been coming here since 2005 (I know, my account is 07, but I had a different account prior to this), and this is the most disappointing update I have seen in CAG's history.

Sure, I get that this layout obviously reduces website optimization, I get that it's probably also much easier to code and implement updates (I'm a web programmer too, you know). It's just that it doesn't feel like CAG like this. It feels like you've now joined the ranks of no longer being individual, and have just cloned all the features of popular websites, right down to the new header, as-well as all the other new "features".

I'm not going to rag on the white layout, as by using Flu.x, it's not "that" bad to look at, though it still does hurt the eyes (not to mention, you've already stated a new darker layout is coming tomorrow). Maybe I'm not giving it enough time. Maybe I'm being pessimistic instead of optimistic, but I truly, as of right now, hate this, and will probably be visiting a lot less because of it.
