I liked my home page being personal...seeing my comments, ibles, and orange board.. It also seems a bit cluttered..overwhelming. Maybe it's that I'm just not used to it yet.

Oh yeah, I'm sure they're all fine, upstanding members of the community. *breaks out notepad* Now tell me, who are all your collaborators in this "iBles" name scheme?

The man is fungus amungus, and we're sticking it (being the word "iBles") to the forums.

I love the new look, its functional.. If i might suggest, reducing the number of featured and most popular ibles.. And add the most recent ibles to the front as well..

As for the word ibles itself, i first encountered it about a month ago (i think), in a post by nachomahma..who coined it? not too sure..And i've seen some of the forum regulars used it several times since..Personally, it sounds cute..and I'm sure Eric won't mind (would he?) :)

Yeah, I'm pretty sure NachoMahma started it, and its not iBles, its ibles.

Even us (fine, you) engineers get lazy and detest typing long words such as "Instru... yeah I gave up, too much effort.

Yea there was a thread on it, about a new name instead of typing Instructables out every few minutes.

You can see the recent ones in the "Explore" pulldown. The personalized page is still there, too, just not by default.

Top right... Oh! I'll have to remember that - the page is too wide for my PC screen. As for the look... promising. I think I'll get used to it.

I like it. But it confused the h*ll out of me why I couldn't find the "You"-item to te left in the menu. Eventually I found it next to my picture. But I do miss the ever-changing random instructables on the top in the old version. It was fun to watch and mouse over to see the title. I found a lot of neat but old instructables that way. The current large header on the frontpage looks more "professional", but is not as usable as the old header.

Bug. I can't see all the pictures in my library just the first 12. I was going to use one in a comment. It says pictures "1 thru 0 of 130" even after I click "next".

I like the new homepage a lot. It looks really cool, but for my personal page, I kind of miss those "featured" or "popular" Instructables squares that would change. Other than that, it's great.
