Now Launching: The New ProfileI'm very excited to announce the arrival of the New Profile. What is the "New Profile" I hear you ask? Well, we've been asking our awesome Sponsors to test it out for the past few weeks, and we're now beginning the rollout process to everyone.



It's an overhaul of the most used part of our site; the community. Not much has changed to the profile in its seven-year lifespan; so we've rewritten it from the ground up. Everything in your profile is now contextualised under a persistent header which allows your space in the community to really shine. Someone may come to your journal entry and suddenly find themselves clicking around the rest of your profile to see what else you've been up to. We also have a great new layout for the watchlist that sorts the newest posts to the top, allowing you to rapidly engage in conversations in forum threads, comments, anything. We hope you love it. We're rolling it out incrementally to users, so you'll get invited very soon (or become a sponsor to get it right now!). When you're in you'll see a prompt at the top of your homepage to upgrade. Don't worry, you can hop in and out of the new and old profiles. We'd love to hear your thoughts, so we've got a hidden forum set-up for feedback.



We've also got something very cool for when you're browsing the site away from your profile, notifications! If you receive an alert we'll pop up a message letting you know to check it out.



This exciting project started as long as 10 months ago with a simple mockup, a small idea that met many changes and challenges along the way to execution. We wanted to create something that would connect the community together and encourage higher participation and discovery. The difference between the two versions is like night and day, and we think it rocks. Go forth, community. Let us know what you think.

I love all the improvements you've made during the sponsor phase, the multiple images now all being compiled into one item was especially a relief to see :)

I still hate the way it looks and works and I still refuse to use it until it is forced upon me.

new profile is great, love it!
then again, when i became a sponsor it was being tested by sponsors, so i've had very little interaction with the 'old' profile, hehe

also, is there any way to view the comments you've made? on blogs, videos, comics etc? i wouldn't mind seeing how i was modded haha

I really like it... on my Computer. But on my phone, the old layout works better- so is there going. To be a delay in mobile turnover?

one of the first drastic-changes to a page layout in a community site that I've actually liked. So much better.
