Here is a concise, well-organized explanation of why we hate the UI.
As of this morning I have noticed that the new Replit UI is no longer explorer. Replit didn’t listen and now we must vote to undo this.
This previous topic got 16 votes opposing the UI while it was explorer. We have already complained about it there so I won’t go into details again here and be redundant.
Please vote on the
feature request now as now we have to undo this.
This is not a feature addition request but rather a request that a beta feature not get used. I don’t really know what category to put this in. If you turn on explorer mode on your Replit account you can see a new UI. This UI makes reading the comments next to impossible and I hate it very much. It ruins all usage of PikaBot2005 and other bots by making comments nearly impossible to view. Please Replit don’t ever use this new U…
UPDATE: To the Replit staff:
here’s more negativity towards the new UI (sadly not all of these people are coming to Ask though). I posted this link below but it’s getting enough responses I wanted it at the top.
This needs to be undone. Listen to the community again, please Replit?
Well. if they won’t listen with the domains, they better listen to this…
I published a Repl to try to get people to come here to vote. I have less than 150 followers though to my impact is limited.
This is unusable. Look at how the styling on the code is. It’s hard to read.
I like the old ui the only advange to the new ui is better for emualtors or whatever liek firefox
13 votes! Lets get to 15!
If you use a flag editor, you can set
false and then old cover pages are still visible and usable.
oh my gosh tell me how the new is absolutely disgusting
oMG YES 15 VOTES LET GO!!!
If you open repls from the homepage or from someone’s profile, you get the old UI.
We have passed 15 votes (now at 17)! Can we get 25?
I’d aim for 2500 if I was you
You got my vote my friend
Yes, but for how long? How long before they decide that “Oops, we missed that, put the new style on there too.”? Also, this doesn’t allow for
easy comment picking.
I am honored. Thanks for the vote!
Yeah, the new UI doesn’t look very good. It doesn’t feel right when it’s on the left of the screen (No pun intended)
You’re welcome! (I’m the 25th voter)
