I feel like the quality of the images as well as the amount of views/comments an image receives have gone down overall as a result of the new layout. I've always wanted to upload images directly to the gallery, but now that I see it being done, I feel like what's being posted isn't all that interesting at all. The whole sorting system seems flawed to me. I liked just being able to hit 'newest' because I felt like I was catching up on everything that had been posted. Now I feel like I'm missing out on images. I'm not trying to sound like one of those people that says "Bring back the old Imgur!" but I don't think it changed for the better.
