I found a blog post from Genius, which also attaches a video on this.

The video makes it VERY clear the only purpose of the redesign is to maximize ad space. Bastards.

Genius.com is the example of absolutely shitty use of A/B testing. What are they expecting to get as a result of giving the users a random ENTIRELY DIFFERENT layout of the website?

It makes sense to me to change like, design of single, small components and analyze the stats, but this seems entirely pointless, and creates an abhorrent user experience.

Fuck you Genius.

.com tip:

To get the better page layout, open the debugger (F12/ctrl+shift+i), storage tab (at least in Firefox, I don't know Chrome's equivalent), open cookies for genius.com and edit:

_genius_ab_test_cohort = 94

Seems like lower values give the bad ugly layout, vs high values which give the much superior one.

I had made this illustration precisely one year ago for a French mastodon instance, for its introduction page and its owner's profile. Now he would rather delete it than credit me properly as I asked, I'm quite sad and angry at the same time 😦 So I feel like publishing it here again,as this was one of my first detailed drawings like this on Clip Studio Paint.

Favorite albums this week:

"Disappear Here" and "Light Of The Fearless" from Hybrid, a big beat band, with a very "cinematic" style.
