You keep threatening to take the classic site away. Put a special maintenance fund in place and you'll get donations enough to keep supporting the classic site.
If it goes away I don't know what I'll do.
I do not want this new cluttered design. As I keep mentioning over and over in my feedback and on other forum posts, it wastes bandwidth on slow connections. It's all well and good that you have blazing fast internet, but some of the world has quite slow internet connections.
Version 2 is NOT intuitive for people using screen readers. Search is a mess. I want a nice static page of search results, not mouse-overs to click and filter.
Garthus, if you have plans to write code that would somehow preserve the elements of the classic site, let me know and I'll contribute cash. It's time to do something.

Andrew,

There is a group of us already working on it. All we need is permission to access the IA database directly, I have tried to contact them about it. Currently I am working on another closely related project which will be revealed shortly. My email contact is garthus801@gmail.com, I can bring you up to date on what a group of us is doing to simplify and optimize use of the Internet. I do not like the way things are heading and this might be the turning point.
