The DP has really gone down hill in my 5 years here.

It has become too much - too much stuff on the pages. It's over loaded.

I'm finding it difficult to visit here much longer.

Seriously, just step back and take a look at all the - I cannot think of another word that describes it besides - CRAP.

It was once simple and now it is cluttered.

it is different. it used to be like a smoky bar.....

there were just a few of us here. it was different then.
it was less crowded and more personel. I agree.
but more are learning. more are talking.
to learn and to talk is why we liked this place.
you were a part of that for me.
I thank you.

the entire world is cluttered

... due to the New World Order making moves against humanity. They call it "Full Spectrum Dominance"... a strategy of throwing everything they've got at humanity all at once in an attempt to overwhelm people and make them throw up their hands in despair. Take a zen vacation, work on your nutritional wellness, and turn the world off for a time.

its because we've been infiltrated, sunny...

co-opted by neocons, trolls, saboteurs...

we were great once, we fueled a movement

we are still here...you, i and all the rest...even those in spirit like the oracle and manystrom and others

we did it!

they can never take that away from us...and if we did it once we can do it again

hope to see you in the future, sunny...i hope we meet again

in LIBERTY!

I've only been here...

...for about 8 mths. so I don't know what it used to be like. I really love the site but have seen many changes in the little time I have been here. Personally, I really don't like the graphs in our profile. I still cannot see a real benefit with it and seems almost like a "big brother" graph. Also, maybe in 5 years there are many more people which would lead to a lot more posting. Idk...just a guess.

Don't go Sunny! I learn a lot from you lifers!=)

i know i can no longer

that blue banner takes up 90% of my screen.
i'll admit my phone is a bit old.

Ron Paul

If we can end, we can reduce.

If we can "end the fed", the fed. dept. of education, foreign aid, ndaa sec 1021, patriot act, tsa, election fraud, etc., I'm sure the crap and clutter would be hugely reduced :-)

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

While the "favorability" rating has made it "The Daily Troll"...

911 truther articles were denounced or deleted as late as 2010.

I would say it is a wash.

I've only been a member just under three years . . .

and I lurked for a year before that--

and what I am 'sensing' is that more and more information is becoming available all the time--

it appears to be overload, but I certainly don't think it's DP's fault--

there's a flood of information; it's terribly overwhelming, and it's hard to know how to prioritize--

but as more and more people wake up, there will be more information--

things simply aren't as simple now (ha, pun!) as they were 4-5 years ago--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Don't fear diversity..

It's what we are fighting for.

I try to change people every day. Do You?

Agree.

The changes make me think and the far wider diversity of opinion is good for all of us. The far wider range of topics is appropriate.

I do wish there were more items about the rEVOLution. There is a lot going on.

h-daddy

I really don't mind the

I really don't mind the changes that Michael has implemented over my last 4+ years here. I don't see one being significantly more effective in reaching the reader more so than the other.

Having the homepage displayed as it is now may be a good thing for actual viewer ship. Maybe Michael is seeing a trend that people are starting to spend 1, 2, 3+ days before returning and want to have the site set up to where they can easily see the top posts of the day/week/month.

The ads don't bother me. My eyes are conditioned to not even look at the colorful blocks of ads down the middle of the page and just focus on the content. Reddit has a similar list style homepage and it's viewers have a super low bounce rate and almost always return.

"One man with courage is a majority." ~ Andrew Jackson

It's not the ads.

I've used ad block too and once I sign in it looks better too. I have PRO also. It does not matter.

Over the years and especially in the past year, it's been tweeked and stuff has been added to make it better or whatever and I think it's just made it a big mess. That is how I see it anyway.

It's just too damn cluttered. It needs to be streamlined.

And what is with this baloney on the front page?:

Ron Paul is My President

Sunny,

DailyPaul Mod Suggestion Box.
http://www.DailyPaul.com/mod-suggestion-box

I appreciated your End-The-Fed Senate & House forums posted on our front page leading us to the passage of as least some of it. I commented several times. Front page was suggested again recently.

Thank you. Regards,

My only complaint-

Is the 'upvote, downvote' democratic system on here. It's bad for group morale and encourages trolling.

SUPPORT OUR FOUNDERS' AMERICA
Support the Constitution of the United States

Tyranny of the majority at

Tyranny of the majority at it's worst.

Although some here seem to be gluttons for punishment ;)

sort of sadistic.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
Friedrich Nietzsche

And BTW

I believe that if you purchase the paid subscription all of that "crap" goes away. Or much of it anyway.

RAND PAUL or NOT AT ALL

What do you want...?

I appreciate Michael for doing his part in this liberty movement. And I will come here as I always have for the latest updates on the progress we are making. In fact now that the Ron Paul campaign is over maybe some of us should pony-up and send Michael a little jingle to encourage him to keep this site up and running for us.

RAND PAUL or NOT AT ALL

The Campaign is not over

It's morphed fron a presidentail nomination to building committees and preparing people for future campaigns, resolutions, inniatives and building the GOP to restore America.

I wish Daily paul had more of this kind of work, as transparent government is important, but not everyone has a tough skin and likes being called "traitor", "Neocon", "Sell out", etc.

You are 100% right

As I commented on another similar post: This is not a good site. It's poorly designed and difficult to use. It's very 1998. So, thank you very much for this site and the work you put into it, I honestly mean it. But the site stinks. Think about it, you can't even embed a youtube video in a post without a mod approving. This site reminds me of the internet in the late 90's. Just download Joomla, buy a nice template and install Kunean Forum. It would be a million times better.

You have a point

At the top are 4 large banners and then the two red and yellow bars below them that seem to serve no real purpose except as distractions.

I did like the streamlined look of the DP that we had not that long ago, but this is still the best site for information. Everyone around me thinks I'm a genius, but I can only thank Michael Nystrom for allowing the gathering of so much material here.

2 Chron 7:13-14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

You may have a point

My browser (Firefox) has AdBlock enabled by default. I just viewed the DP in Google Chrome to get the normal effect. WOW! That made a difference. I agree it's a bit much.

I hope you never leave, Sam--

I've seen a lot of good people leave in my short three years here (lurked for a year before that)--

I hope you always stick around--

your books have lasted for a long time! :)

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Made me laugh :)

It is always fun to run across your comments...even when sailing amongst Pirates!

Land Ho Captain, there's a cleaning service on yon shore! Perhaps that Mudcat can keep the Pirates swept overboard!
