It reduces the art side, what the vast majority are here to look at, and fills the rest of the page with something I personally don't want.
Now if you're Core you may have some options to edit but I assume your page is still split 50/50 now?

I’ve read quite a few comments about this already. I suppose it’s the result of careful studies into maximum “revenue” that layouts generate. If I may paraphrase something a fellow Deviant said a week ago “How can we consider ourselves to be a community if we can be sold for $36M?”
By definition we are merely “chattels” (as in moveable/saleable property), apparently valued at $1 (£0.81) apiece, and our pictures are a constant source of income for the host. As chattels I don’t think we have any legal right to complain, fortunately we are not (yet) indentured servants, so we are at liberty to disassociate ourselves whenever we wish. Must admit I’ve hovered the mouse cursor over the “Yes, deactivate my account” button more than once this week (many, many others have just clicked it).
(It is because most of us have more sense than to want such a burden of power, only the self-obsessed would desire such).
I suspect you might find the following a good read.. ( The Rise and Fall of Empires )
You may recognise some of the signs in our current world.
That was indeed a pleasant read, very many thanks! I’ve been preaching similar ideas and the final age of decadence (e.g. transgender toilets) for years but I might as well just walk up and down the street with an “End is Nigh” placard.
Unfortunately Mr Glubb placed the emphasis on learning, whereas the national education system is, and always has been, based on blind instruction and how to obey “following the party line” rather than learning. Anything I know today, be it history, art, science, I learned for myself long after leaving skool, I’m sure the same is true for you. Unfortunately the vast majority leave skool happy with a few GCSEs and that’s where their “academic education” stops, hello “Game of Thrones”, “The Voice”, “Emmerdale”, “Eastenders” (the latter being perfect examples of government designed “further education” to instruct us in morals, right/wrong) ….How many sheeple do you know that can rattle off Ian Beale’s tumultuous past yet can’t name a single government minister?
Maybe you’ve already read it, but I highly recommend “Why Beautiful People Have More Daughters” by Alan S.Miller. Evolutionary Psychology is fascinating and constantly, albeit covertly, used to keep us obediently in line.
BTW Loved the fact that Mr Glubb blamed women for the destruction of Empires
Same as SW I prefer the previous way images were displayed on the home page. I didn't even know there was a possibility to change the 50/50 split, but I do have the possibility to re-arrange some things via the edit page option.
AFAIK there isn't.
I believe you are correct that they won't have a complaints dept. though.
"I do not like the new look page, they've forced the inconsequential right side of your page to take up 50% of the space." leads to think that this was not the case before the changes...
It made sense to some power wannabe that has to justify his wage and the fact he/she had the word design somewhere in some diploma they earned for turning up to 80% of lectures.
