Awesome, Livejournal!

The beta test that you threw me on five minutes ago has rendered me unable to read any comments on LJ! Awesome! Exactly what I wanted! How did you ever know?

I've tested removing AdBlock and the Greasemonkey script that stops LJ perma-loading, but they don't seem to affect it. Off to try Ghostery next...

edit: Ah, I forgot I don't have Ghostery installed on my work computer. So that's ruled out!

edit edit: to get back to the old style, follow these directions

Beta test? Is that what it is? All I'm seeing is unreadable pages with light grey text on white background, and everything looks like it's greyed out.

Thankfully my flist and the comment pages appear to be working still ... *crosses fingers*

Huh. Everything's been sort of greayed out, but I didn't get a pop-up or a button at all. Is there a link to get out of this? :( :( :(

Do you still have the pop-up? Does someone, so they can c&p the link? Damn. :(

I've put in a support request myself.

Also, I tried logging in on another account in another browser, but didn't get a pop-up there either ... just the greyed-out page. Very bizarre.

Yeah, comments appear to be not working on site scheme pages for me either. But ?style=mine is still working. (For now.)

Typical LJ clusterfuck indeed.

I don't think ?format=light has worked on LJ since forever. Hm, the ?style=mine thing may be dependent on which style/whether you're using custom comment pages - do you have those túrned on?

It's here:

(Set "Disable customized comment pages for your journal" to "no".)

(I don't know what I'd do without bookmarklets and Stylish and Greasemonkey scripts! Absolutely essential to my browsing experience.)

I don't believe I was included in the beta testing and it looked like all of LJ simply went down for a while.

I didn't get the pop-up, but looking around some more, it does seem that I've been "migrated over" to whatever brilliant scheme they're running now. *sigh*

Fwiw, during the outage, I found the representation of a faceless LJ-user image on the LJ page explaining about the unplanned outage both incredibly creepy and perfectly apt (not that the graphic representations of Frank-the-goat with his anatomically incorrect irises are much better...).

I can't even leave a comment if it's a reply to another comment. I get the creepy goat "unhandled exception" error page.

It is well and truly fokked.

There's a little speech-bubble with a question mark on the top right of the new profile page: clicking that should get you the popup back, with the option to switch back to the old style.

...on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying 'Beware of the Leopard'.

Getting Frank nibbling on the wires myself right now, but once again, ?style=mine appears to fix things for some reason ...

So much *headdesk*.

That is one truly horrible beta design. Even for LJ.

{ http://[YOU USERNAME] } is what I got for the feedback link when it just tried to switch me on another account. I saw the change on my Nintendo 3DS and panicked this morning. It also refreshed the page twice after I clicked "SWITCH BACK" with it until it went back to decent.

Yeah, that link didn't work on the login page. But, hey.

You know they're going to force us into the new style sooner or later...
