You don't. This is the responsive version of the site and is the only version going forward.
Takes some time to get used to, but I don't dislike it as much as I first did.

In reply to aguy777 (msg # 3):

im getting tired of every damn website forcing unneccessary changes like this. This new ui is crap. I didnt like what steam did either.

The mods gave us a heads up more than a year ago, and they've gone to great lengths to: (a) explain why the changes were necessary, (b) give everyone ample time to test drive the new site, and (c) allow us the opportunity to offer feedback.

As 1492 said, they've explained it and made changes with everyone's feedback.
They also gave everyone ample warning. Aside from the heads-up that the change would eventually be happening from years ago, they also changed the banner on the site to provide a concrete date (the 23rd) a full month in advance.

They are not unnecessary changes, as was explained by jase on a number of occasions.

Is there a way to prevent page elements from changing as I move my mouse? E.g. links that move up just before I click them because above it something has now been hidden.

Can things be set to always show?

Can we setup custom CSS to fix these type of UI elements?

Hmm I logged in and had forgotten this was changing. It still had my old colour scheme at least. Then I went into my preferences to see if I could change the layout and put the menu buttons along the top, but that didn't seem to be there. I noticed that the "Character Portraits" and "RMail enabled" options didn't seem to have been selected as either "on" or "off" so I tried clicking to edit them. Nothing happened so I clicked on "Update details" and while they did both now show up as "on" it also cleared my colour scheme to the horrible plain white one, and even selecting "Light green" doesn't bring back the one I had before (I think it was just called "Green"). The custom one has tons of different boxes for colour values of different things. I couldn't find any way to undo the change I had accidentally made so I think I've lost my green background now, unless anyone knows how to get it back? I tried changing the background colour but as I don't know what values it was I couldn't get it looking even vaguely pleasant :(.

The custom theme screen seems to deselect your chosen background image every time one tries to adjust something - be sure to put that back on every time you mess with stuff or it defaults to white again. The box above it is the one that controls the main background colour, but it also forms the default for drop down boxes and so on, so no comfortable mid-shades if you want to read anything. Just takes a load of fiddling around, I think, alas.

Suspect there isn't a way to put the menu boxes back where they should be because everything's geared towards intelligent telephones these days, but if I'm wrong I'd sincerely like to know. Heh, my only non-desktop device is a secondhand iPad so old I can't see player login times for my own games on it no matter how much I tap or hover.
