Top Ten Best Things About TheTopTens New Layout

Oh yes, it's different, but open your minds and give admin a break! It really ain't bad at all!

The Top Ten

1 The messages

THE MESSAGES. WOW. Not only did it finally lose the beta and is the real thing, but the bubbles look incredible, the times are all correct (previously it was all pacific time, no matter where you were) AND it tells you how long ago the messages were sent, AND you have the option to use the enter key to send things instead, AND they moved the "block user' so that you don't accidentally block a friend. The messages just look beautiful and perfect. - keycha1n

It's a little slow for those outside America, but compared to the 20 items per page thing and the policy, this is an actual improvement that doesn't suck. - Therandom

Like Keycha1n said, the messages look indeed beautiful. I really like what Admin did about the messages. - Delgia2k

I love the messages, they seem more organized. - Catacorn

2 The new homepage

One of my few gripes has always been the rather boring logos here, that aside, the new homepage is fresh and exciting and looks like it's on the top of it's game. - keycha1n

I came onto the site and immediately thought, where has the weird world of the internet taken me? Then I knew I was always there. - PositronWildhawk

This is better because it shows some of the popular lists - jmepa1234

3 It looks much cleaner and more sophisticated

It just looks slick and modern and classy and every transition is smoother... It is rather pretty, even if it gave up the cute colors. - keycha1n

It's a lot more inviting to teens and kids - which is every single person who visits the site - Songsta41

But I liked the old look! - MrQuaz680

It does? - jmepa1234

4 Honorable mentions

I actually like this feature a lot - htoutlaws2012

Yeah! I can make a better remix on Best Metallica songs!

Where do you see "Honorable Mentions"? - BlueTopazIceVanilla

When your remixing a List Honorable Mentions and Dishonorable Mentions pop up once you put 10 items in the list - htoutlaws2012

I love the honorable mentions! - Catacorn

5 The 'just added' section

I'm not sure why, but I really like this. - RockFashionista

6 The logo

I put this near the end because I've never liked the logo and the new one still disappoints, but it is better than the previous-so I will give it that. And it meshes well with the new feel of the site. - keycha1n

The old logo was a lot better! That's the only thing I don't like about the new site!

I think the old logo was good too, so I wouldn't put this too high on the list. - Songsta41

I'm disappointed with the logo - jmepa1234

7 The modern design

More mobile-friendly. But I don't like it that the site kinda looks like Facebook. Well, at least it's orange-themed, not blue.

I think this new modern design gives more attention and better quality to the site - MatrixGuy

I'm unkeen on it - jmepa1234

8 The new list items get more attention
9 The change/lack of colors

It just looks clean. Plus, if they're going to choose such a clashing color as orange to represent the site, they may as well make the rest of it monochromatic because nothing goes with orange and the previous color scheme clashed immensely (green, blue and orange-i know I should keep my opinions out but.. Yuck) - keycha1n

I don't like the "clean" and "modern" look as much as the classic look, It's just missing the character that every website should have, and feels a little bit plain to me. - Turkeyasylum

I don't like this - jmepa1234

To be honest, I think the old layout was... Meh, it's okay for me. - Delgia2k

10 The related lists being moved to the side

Most of the time, I do my TopTenning on my iPod, so for me, they are even harder to get to because they are at the bottom. - RockFashionista

The Contenders

11 Change of font

I don't know if it was just mobile, but when I edited my profile or was typing up a new comment, it was always in this hideous typewriter font. That's gone now and I am SO glad because it looked very messy. - keycha1n

Doesn't bother me - jmepa1234

12 1, 2 and 3 being bronze, silver and gold

The silver on the second place item looks almost exactly the same as pretty much every other item.

13 The transitions

I don't know how to explain it, but when you hover your mouse over something before clicking on it-that's what I mean. The new ones are much prettier and smoother and considering everything does this, I did consider it important enough to add to this list. It makes the whole site feel quick and breezy. - keycha1n

Ah, now that makes it look like real smooth. - Delgia2k

I think they are similar speeds - jmepa1234

14 The user buttons being moved to the top
15 The new top bar
16 The bigger text
17 More images on lists

It's much better to see more album covers on a music list than just the top ten. - PositronWildhawk

18 The top three

Practically everything on this list is a tiny thing and doesn't matter at all. Grey, silver and bronze numbers? Wow. So amazing. - Puga

Then doesn't that mean wanting the old layout back would be pointless-as everything that changed was "subtle"?

The "Send Message" box being "too big" was also a rather miniscule thing to pick on. - keycha1n

The gold, silver, and bronze took a second to understand because the silver looks so much like the grey, but it looks cooler than the previous crown for only #1.

The site is different-but that doesn't mean it's bad. It'll take us all a while to get used to it, but we may as well focus on the positives-which much outweigh the negatives to me. - keycha1n

19 Your favorite lists are easily accessible

This is low because I don't necessarily revisit my favorite lists much, But this is all the more reason to favorite my own so that I can easily check up on how they're doing! Ahah! - keycha1n

20 Losing the feed

The feed is still here everyone. Go to Home, scroll down to Happening Now and click More - bobbythebrony

I personally never used it and it was rather cluttery, In my humble and worthless opinion, - keycha1n

I always liked having an organized place to see the comments people put on your lists - Songsta41

It is still there just harder to find - jmepa1234

21 Britgirl can use her account again

Had I known before-I would've definitely put this at #1. But adding it on right now is still sufficient. Whatever the problem was-she's on again and I'm very glad! - keycha1n

This should be silver or bronze, with messages at gold. - Turkeyasylum

This is awesome. We love Britgirl! #BritgirlStan - JaysTop10List
