I love the little decay dial along the skills myself.

Also, I'm pretty happy about the recent change in font! :D

As a moderator, I love the new design because it is easier for me to give people directions when they are looking for something. AND the other forums, Troubleshooting and the Language Discussion forums are all at the top of the page instead of hiding way down on the right where they weren't visible without some scrolling.

I'm looking forward to the Vocabulary Tab update. It'll be nice to have that back. And I'm super excited to find out what the User Groups feature is going to look like.

The thing I'm most happy about is the data coming in:
`We've been testing the new design for over two months with more than a million users. According to all our metrics, this new design performs significantly better than the old one. New users, old users, heavy users, casual users, all of them use the website on average more often and for longer each time, progress further down the tree, and have higher estimated learning outcomes.'

In despair I came here looking for an answer to what happened to DL on my W10 laptop. I can't see anything changed on DL 's appearance but instead and suddenly it has become weird. When I launch it I see a little vertical thin strip on my screen and something beside it. Even sometimes there is nothing to see because what should be seen is out of screen. So I need to pinch the screen to bring DL in the middle of the screen, then resize it . but this does not even stays as changed when I use it. I don't understand what is going on. And this does not happen on my W7 desktop. I used chrome in both. So I have no idea what the new DL looks like, but someone commented that my problem may be related to the upgrade. In the light of what I described it does not really make sense if this is the case but then I wonder what could be the reason.

¡El nuevo diseño!

For you, but not for most of us. I got it this morning.

February 7, 2014

Ah OK I understood it was changed AGAIN... Bye

Not for me. It is:
-too colorful
-too round,
-too bright
It has a horrible font and unnecessary animations duing the lesson which do nothig else but distract you.
The whole interface is harder to handle. And why is everything so round? This is not 3D so I wouldn't hurt myself having more square or sharp windows on this page.
And the Italian and French flag look like two separate semicircles.

Amazing!!!! I got an email about this 'discussion' today 10th of February 2018 and I can't make any sense out of it. This thing is 4 years old! 4 years ago, one year ago I did not even know DL existed! One comment below is from a moderator...I don't know what is moderated here or what "New" upgrade we're talking about but it'd be great if moderators had a look at it and do something about it. I also see my own comment apparently 4 month old....No knee jerk about it either?
