The State of Livejournal, Your Opinions and what YOU'D like to do

EDIT: PLEASE GO READ THIS IN REGARDS TO SUBJECT LINES.

Starting on December 22nd 1:00AM EST, Livejournal's New Site-Scheme (Update 88) was put online. The public outlash so far has been pretty vocal on their page (you can go read it here). A few hours ago LJ put up a new post regarding the update and what they are doing to fix it. However, we'd like your opinion regarding Livejournal, the new layout, LJ-related things we have come to expect as gamers; Titles, Comments (you can't click on a single comment anymore due to the lack of titles), parent links, etc.,if you'd like to wait to see if the choices will be reinstalled or if you'd rather move anyway.

Things to consider:
- This isn't an instant change there will be no moving, if any, before the holidays are over
- There are currently a few workarounds for the LJ layout.
- People who have paid accounts (As in put in money for their accounts and would be losing money making the move to another service)
- Again, the vote helps us give an idea of what the member's feelings currently are, and we may end up not moving at all, depending on what happens. But your view is very important.
