What an incredibly poorly timed and utterly tone-deaf post, +Google+
Also, your updated UI sucks badly enough to actively harm some of the largest and most vital communities in your ecosystem. Your work, particularly around UI, UX, and QA is frankly appalling - controls that move around,
controls that are visible but disappear at mouse-over,
stream and moderation functions that went from one or two clicks to several.
And your UI/UX updates are always a surprise, a puzzle for experienced users and organizers and community-builders to burn midnight oil on instead of being able to actually do what we do in selflessly creating and delivering useful and interesting and educational content to others. To all outward appearances, you either don't use the service, just started using it and felt compelled to start by repeating every mistake previous developers made, or your motto is simply "shiny" blurted loudly while banging your head on the nearest solid object. You have utterly failed to "improve the platform [we] already love[ed]."
2016 isn't over yet, so maybe save the self-congratulatory back-patting for when you've finally fixed your continuing stream of errors or just sunk the ship once and for all.
But enough about you, you want to hear from me about my accomplishments, the ones your truly appalling UI makes somewhere between uselessly difficult and completely impossible.
