I BUMPED THIS TO THE FRONT PAGE - If you have bugs to report or SOLUTIONS to some of the obvious problems here on HH2.0, please use this thread. Needless bitching about new things, though, is, well, not needed... (Rev out)

This new format SUCKS. Seriously. I've given it some time, and I usually adjust to major changes like this, but this is TERRIBLE. Here's the thing: SBNation was one of the few remaining sites that actually loaded in milliseconds on a standard broadband connection. This meant that a.) I could read Halos Heaven on my Blackjack at work and b.) actually going to and from the page was not a multimedia nightmare.
This is, as far as a concern, a stupid way to fix something that wasn't broke. No, the blogs as a whole were not particularly professional looking, and the format was clearly outdated, but does this look any better to you? Millions of interstitial ads (mention your ad-blocker and I will discount every opinion you ever have from now on) combined with ridiculous avatars and a posting scheme which, somehow, managed to be worse than the original.
Oh, and Firefox hates this place.
If I give someone like $20 or something can I have my old HH back?
Let me put this as simply as I can: I spend about a quarter as much time here as I did before the redesign. I spend much of that extra time at as-of-yet unchanged format sites. This change is not attracting more users, because the type of people interested in this blog aren't going to come here for avatars and "recs" on "fan posts." They're gonna come here for Angels news. And now I'm trying to find a less garish place to find that.
