SkibumsmithI don't want to sound bitchy because I know you guys are working super hard on everything and I might be the only one who feels this way:
Everything feels dumbed down. This seems like a growing trend. Desktop sites everywhere are being dumbed down to become more mobile friendly.
and it's pissing me off.
Yeah its a really hard part of the modern website. Mass amounts of user attention have gone out the window, and over half of the audience is now viewing mobile only. So you need to simplify for this - and attending to mobile platforms doubles the work you used to have to do to maintain something. Start thinking about apps and you're adding a full other 100% workload of maintenance per platform you support.
So partly you have to "dumb it down" (Read: Simplify) due to device access and partly you have to do it because you can't maintain such a complicated site with the resources you have.
Sorry, we've done a couple of overhauls on the design because we're trying to nail it on the Beta. Won't be more than a week or two until people start seeing something.
