Ahhh, a new site! I'm still getting used to things around the new Destructoid. I think I really like most of the changes so far.
I like that we can finally see everyone who fapped a particular Cblog. I hope they fix the auto-self fapping bug/feature though, it takes away the fun of calling people out for self fapping. I also like that timestamps are now assigned to a blog once the person actually hits the Publish button; I think this is ideal. Also, we have video embed again! Woo!
The site in general looks really sleek and nice, especially with the Ohh theme selected (although Foe is the best theme, obviously).
As for the new comment system, I'm still adjusting. No more writing out a big comment of @s, which is nice. I'm not a big fan of the voting system for comments though. I don't really see the point in having downvotes, other than to call out trolls and spam. Otherwise it just makes the commenter feel bad. I've found myself thinking twice before leaving comments, and then later I realized how silly I was being, as if upvotes or downvotes really matter. I guess these are things that people have been asking for though.
For the most part, the changes have all been positive, so I'm happy with the new site overall. Thanks for all of your hard work, Dtoid staff!
