I thought it made a pretty good electronic "Press Kit" with sound clips, a blurb and a schedule readily viewable on one page

It still does once you work out the tools they've managed to hide so annoyingly, possibly even better than before. Though I quite understand why everybody currently thinks otherwise.

How hard would it have been to have had a pop-up when you first logged back in after they changed the design that took you to a simple tutorial and reference section which you could then bookmark. It's all actually quite straightforward and logical - no harder to learn than the original - but ONLY once you know which route to go and what it can do, which isn't signposted at all. Small wonder everybody is struggling and fed up: the obvious places to start don't work, as people have mentioned above. And without any modification, the "converted" pages they've done without asking you first really do look awful, filled with unwanted junk.

If it wasn't owned by Murdoch I'd feel sorry for them. As it is, I quite like the idea of getting something for free off the bad guys which I can then use to subvert the big money entertainment industry.
