quote New unquote User Interface for oDesk

I realize that themes and UI-UX layouts are typically 'buggy' when first put online; the "new" look of oDesk has some bugs I'd like to point out. 1) the email/messaging system of the Inbox just went backwards... it is very frustrating having to open the past messages with the 'hide' applet (items folded out of view) and even worse: the applet stays in the absolute property where a user must scroll from the top all-the-way to the most current messages, at the bottom - very annoying if you have a long thread; 2) for the textfield of the inbox message center (write new message) the word-wrap is not configured or parsed so the text uses a (space) between words at the EOL (end of line), words are broken apart in the [non]WYSIWYG editor.
Other than that I generally accept "change" rather well but just not sure why oDesk changed unless someone "sold" them on a new UI as I saw no reason to change. Would like to hear from others on this. P.S. I like the old look better. This one looks like a second class CMS.
