Who thinks it's a good idea to go ahead and switch to the new profile now, and why?
Seems to me it could save a lot of trouble just doing it now instead of trying to figure it out later, and we're going to have to sooner or later. Of course, I see the value of just letting it take it's course, let the new profiles come along and just slide right in.
I switched to the new look and I like it. Its a good idea to go ahead and switch to the new look. In fact I think the new profile look is more relevant for SEO than the old profile look. The new look has more content displayed on the Home page making it more SEO relevant. Just go ahead and switch to the new profile look. Further more the HP admin might at some point make it compulsory.
I'm still fairly new to HubPages, so I didn't even know there was a new profile format out. When I clicked on afriqnet's it looked very nice, so I switched over. This was primarily because I don't have any content yet, so I don't have any attachment to how it was formerly laid out.
I still think it looks much more organized and the theme idea is good, though most of the ones that have images are useless because you barely see the background through the modules - at least on my size screen (11"). Does anyone else see it this way, or is it just those of us on netbooks?
I have switched today, and I really like the new layout, and that you can pick some of your favourite hubs to showcase on your page.

Since another thread encouraged us to switch over to the new profile layout, I have checked some of the profiles of Hubbers who have switched. There are two technical problems that I see. It is possible that they are related to my browser (IE 8.0), but I'm not currently in a position to...

I have been thinking about how I can give some of my hubs that receive less traffic more light. On our profiles, we can pick a bunch of hubs that feature in a "gallery" that fades in and out, right under our bios and above the published hubs listed in the bottom section. This year, my...

Is there anyway I can go back to the old profile once I switched to the new one? I am very disappointed in Hubpages for taking away the feature of putting backlinks in the Bio Section of our profile. Many of us constantly strive to write unique quality content in our Hubs, so it blows me away that...

A few days ago, I noticed that a lot of people were talking about changing from HP Ad Program to Google AdSense. I had tried that a few years ago, but switched back pretty quickly because I earned better with HP. Recently though, since my earnings have dropped so much, I figured I didn't have much...

I love the new profile page, it looks better, I like that you can choose which hubs to feature. One thing I miss about the old set-up is that I could see at a glance which of the people I'm following had recently posted a hub. That feature seems to be gone. Is there anything you miss about the old...
