I am settling down a bit George. I'm waiting til everyone gets the gist and the mess is over.
If you see me making disparaging remarks about your new format it's because I'm old and tired and really don't want to deal with the changes.
It's like joining a whole new site that I might not have joined. I'm usually pretty good with changes and I think if you would have made smaller, slower changes over a longer period of time, it might have been easier.
I have loved my time at G+ but now I'm completely befuddled.
You call it simpler. I call it stripped down. A heads up once in a while wouldn't hurt either. I know it's your site and you can do as you please but remember lots of us are here because of what it was.
I've seen a few 'swan songs' this morning from long time users. It's so upsetting. Loosing, long time, wonderful photographers is such a shame.
I'll be watching for a while but don't know if I'll make the changes. It's not a threat, just how I'm feeling right now. I don't think you recognize how connected we all are in the photography community. I'm one small voice and there are lots of us.
Give us a way to remain connected.
My 2 cents.
These are the goals of a photographer and
their lifetime mission:
To explore strange new worlds
To seek out new life and hidden worlds
To boldly go where no man/woman has gone before"
I borrowed that from 'Star Trek'

presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new
evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is
extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it
is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize,
ignore and even deny anything that doesn't fit in with the core belief.” -
