I think "motive" makes it unacceptable, at least for this screener.

Top page photos are resized dynamically if you change window size. This means top photo which is originally 1024px wide can be anything from 457px to 1243px wide, and quality lack generated by such manipulation is quite obvious.Jump to post
Needless to add to that inability to solve in a month A.net banner issue for photos uploaded after Anexit, which force lot of photographers to put ugly watermarks on photos.Jump to post
But just saying it is "unusable", when other people are clearly managing to use it, really doesn't help at all.
The new site is not usable. ... ...Maybe if I voice my opinion enough something will get back to the way it used to. Meh Perhaps if people made more constructive criticisms, your suggestions might be used to improve things. Comments like "not usable" or "hard to navigate" help n...Jump to post

Throughout history, the reading standard has been black/dark blue on white - books, newspapers, most magazines -as a published writer, that's how I want my text to appear and the reverse of that would seem to be what we have on a.net now. mariner Except, and it was discussed millions times since, f...Jump to post
Do you know that your embedded photo opens in 1920x1080 size? So there is no way to judge quality, blurriness and sharpening issues of the original upload? It's why I stopped even think about participating in any activity except "site related quarrels" until they repair this (as Kas said) ...Jump to post
As a side note, never before I seen one photographer occupied all five top shoots slots at A.net. So or your photos are of outstanding interest for the world, Steve, or contribution to this site ceased dramaticallyJump to post
If it was there on the old site then it is news to me as I never saw one. You did, just it was much smaller and now when anything is so big it's quite annoying. As a suggestion to developers, it's makes sense to put similar topics down bottom navigation string (and possibly find a way to collapse -...Jump to post
I refer to five top photos which rotates on main page. What can be much clear? You can however answer that you don't see any wrong with them.Jump to post

Sorry if I am repeating a question but I still get the impression that the photos since the upgrade still lack quality!? They seem slightly out of focus?

Kulverstukas, I get just as much ads logging in to JP As I do here, actually I get the exact same ads so I think they use the same provider.

Can we please put a rest to all the DM-is-trying-to-kill-off-A.net talk. This is NOT the case.

They wouldn't need to do that. They own the site, they could simply just turn it off if that's what they really wanted.
It would be very easy for DM to do it without making it known, and justify folding A.net if they reduce it to a hollow shell first. My impression over the past couple of years has been that they are not happy with the site's revenue generation anyway, and spending half an hour of dev time and $17 o...Jump to post
On one side I'm glad to see someone not removing their photos for a change (I personally never get why people do that, it's free exposure that requires no extra effort?)
