Do you like the new changes on this site?

One more time, Italki made changes. And, one more time, I don't like these new changes :P

For instance, I don't like that I can't find my "commented discussions" in my profile; so I've to look for them in the tab of "Discussions" and then "My Discussions" and "My commented discussions"... C'mon... I'm lazy for that!! I can't spend that precious time of mine!!... *sigh*


Someone else wants to complain about the new changes in Italki?

@Daniel (languagedan): Yeah! i've imagined the same scene! In my mind the designers are monkeys (no offence Italki's web developers, I also need the invaluable assistance of my secretary monkey to write my entries in this site... yes, just like right now)

@Sam Bleakly: I appreciate your diplomacy, but I strongly doubt that italki's web developers or
whoever is taking these 'bright' ideas about the site are really taking in mind the opinion of the users. Because is hard to believe someone in this site making a suggestion to Italki's Admin about making disappear the possibility to following the comments of your friends, followers, or whoever in Italki but yourself (Yeah, is right that i love my own comments but c'mon... Noone has so big ego...not even I.

Just imagine if you can't follow the comments and "likes" of your friends in facebook... I'm sure Mark Zuckerberg wouldn't be so famous (and wealthy) nowadays. Italki's staff should take that in mind :P

So discussions replaces groups? If that's the case then I'm dissapointed.

Oh man, glad to know I'm not alone.  I really am curious what the designers were thinking when they decided to hide all comments/answers to other people's entries.  Let me guess...


"Hey, I bet no one cares about the people they've helped, the comments they've made for others, the questions they've answered, discussions they've had, etc.  Surely, people only care about reading their own entries.  Let's remove all that useless friendly info, what say?  What?  Those are their friends?  Come on, who needs friends when you've got yourself!?"


I've sent a polite message to support raising this issue and I encourage others to do the same.  Be cordial.  If enough people complain, they must bring it back.  If not, that will be a sad day for italki as this quite simply a show stopper.

Hola Mary, I hate these updates. In fact I was going to write this entry,  but I couldn't:

I Can’t fine my friends

How can I find the search engine in this new format of Italki, because it’s very uncomfortable to scroll all the list of my friends to whom I have not seen in a long .

So I need your help. Can anyone help me?
