I know that many people have been frustrated by the changes in CS over the last few months, and I share a lot of those frustrations.

But it seems to me that there has been an increase in CS responsiveness over recent days/weeks. Specifically, Sam & Merci have been more engaged with the active community and I get a sense that they are taking our concerns seriously.

I think the changes to the top of the pages (where there is now a large "SURF" button for travellers), the increased prominence of the "community details", and changing the activities map to a list are all good improvements.

It is true that there are still other improvements that need to be made, and we should keep pressuring CS HQ to make those changes... but when we compare the last week of progress to some previous weeks of frustration I think it's worth showing our appreciation.

Or... lest I be accused of speaking on behalf of others... at least I'll show my appreciation.

So -- thanks Sam & thanks Merci. :)

I can't tell you how sad I am to say this... but it looks like I was wrong.

The reversal on the "community details" is a mistake, it was totally unnecessary, and it goes against the strong will of most of the active members.

I love CS, but this is becoming depressing. Life is too short to be worried about these things, so I'm going to take a break for a while. Hopefully sanity returns at some point. :(
