Damnit, LJ!

Well, it would seem I spoke too soon...all of a sudden, my own journal seems to have changed to the new comments lay-out: no drop-down menu for Userpics, and no subject headers. Yet this is a paid account, which I thought was going to be exempt from the changes (which it was until this afternoon)?

ETA: Panic over! After fiddling with my customisations, things have finally returned to normal. Turns out it was a glitch, flipping the default viewing options on a whole host of accounts.

I seem to still have both a subject line and a picture drop-down menu. Perhaps it's layout dependant?

No, it shouldn't be lay-out dependant. If you had a Paid account, S2 style (which I have), the changes weren't meant to affect you. Also, if Disable customized comment pages was set to Yes (which it is) in the Customize Style Settings, it shouldn't affect one's journal.

Things were fine until about an hour ago. But somehow, now they're not.

I normally have Custom Comment pages enabled, and then I still have the old posting options. But I just disabled 'view in my own style' for your journal, and here's the new comment box...

... It is a bit ugly, isn't it?

Yes, very ;-)

At the moment, it doesn't seem to matter what box I tick in the Customize Style/Settings. I think there's some sort of glitch with the roll-out, as more of my flist are experiencing unwanted changes at the moment.

You're absolutely right: Custom Comment pages should be enabled, not disabled as I said before.

There is a drop down menu of sorts for pix. Although I think some of mine are missing.

I know, but that's hardly the issue. These namby-pamby changes shouldn't affect my journal at all, according to LJ's announcement prior to the release.

The new style icon selector sucks, if like me you have over a hundred of them.
