Yes or No?
I know that most Medium members love Medium for its clean, minimal, and roughly uniform design.
However, when Medium was launched, it provided more flexibility.
Now with Medium’s recent changes, it’s clear that Medium wants to return to form.

Others argue that they’ve seen some really great profile designs during their time here.
So, they’ll be sorry to see these features go!
