I think of it not as much as wanted too, but had to. How many of us are coders? I imagine with new phones and computers and other things out on the market, they’re kind of forced too. No one has the same phone, or the same browser, or the same browser add ons and extention’s and a million of the under-the-hood things. The internet changes, it expands. Wattpad’s probably changed a lot since it first opened up, within how things work, color schemes, profile pages FOR SURE since I remember headers used to not be a thing, and your book images were tinier thumbnails than now, etc. Codes change, hosting servers change, the internet changes.
I get it, we hate change, we hate this layout. I’m sure everyone hated all the layouts of Wattpad Yesteryear but ended up liking it, or getting used to it, the same way we’ve gotten used to websites changing; they have to change. You can’t really move on to bigger and better without implementing some sort of features that are going to be wonky a while. Facebook did it, Tumblr did it. If WP didn’t change, we’d be sitting here with a fifteen year old layout with a probably dead has-been like MySpace because the bugs would’ve gotten so awful and we’d be stuck in the past, that we would’ve left WP in droves for something else that would’ve inevitably capitalized and taken its place. They’d be making changes, too.
