Recently there’s been talk about myspace scrapping their CSS in the page designs. I know I’m not the only one a little frustrated about this purely because it’s going to cause me a lot of future problems. A lot of people create myspace designs for their clients, and those clients have paid their hard earned money in return. So what happens when myspace decide to scrap the CSS and therefore loose the custom designs people have paid for, or just spent a lot of time creating?
Back when I was around 14/15 myspace was buzzing! A lot of people I knew ended up learning code and/or a bit of photoshop in order to make their profile how they wanted it to look. It made people be creative and learn new things. I bet a lot of coders and/or designers started because of myspace. Now because of the popularity of facebook, myspace has most definitely died down when it comes to friends ‘socializing’ on the network. However it’s still very much alive for recording artists. Where else can you make a social profile look like an actual website, without having to worry about hosting fees and so on? Myspace… you’re really digging your grave a lot deeper with this stupid idea. Are you not happy that people make money off doing peoples designs? Your also making a lazy generation, we learned the code and photoshop to customize ours, a lot more rewarding! Now you’re handing it to people on a plate…
If you just sorted out all the spam that’s on there, blocked the bots and cleaned the place up a bit it’d be better. A new profile style isn’t needed. 2.0 was absolute ass, god knows what 3.0 is going to be like. Oh and if you stopped nicking parts of twitter and facebook it’d be better too. That goes out for all three of those networks though, all trying to steal something from the next site. Smh… Don’t worry though, give it a few years or so and facebooks golden days will be over too. Then twitters…
I would like to point out that if the profiles which have been created go to sh*t because of this myspace change over, then please direct your complaints to myspace.com itself. There is nothing anyone who created your layouts can really do until we sus out the new way of customizing.
I hope the BETA tests fail miserably
