Why won't Google admit the new interface is an utter failure, and scrap it?This is an example of misguided optimism. Blogger is not simply going to scrap it.
The people such as in the latter example, who are protesting the coming of the New Blogger Interface, are making three mistakes.
- They are wasting their own time and energy, protesting.
- They are not telling people, specifically, what problems they see.
- They are encouraging other people to waste time and energy.
The New Blogger Interface is not going to go away - nor is it an utter failure.
No previously controversial Blogger features, seen in the past, have been scrapped.
- Auto pagination.
- Automated account and blog recovery.
- Spam mitigation.
Better get used to it, folks. The New Blogger Interface will, eventually, become The Blogger Interface - with, or without, your approval. If you want to accomplish something, tell everybody what, specifically, you consider to be a problem. Just tell everybody what problems you see, while there is still time to get something done - before we see a Gear icon, with no menu entry for "Old Blogger interface", on everybody's dashboard.
