The recent User Interface [UI] "upgrade" to the CouchSurfing.org [CS] web-site has been met with severe dissappointment and upset all of the CouchSurfers [CSers] around the world.

We, the passionate and dedicated CSers around the world want to save you, CouchSurfing.org, from your own mis-doings and resuscitate it back to where it was a few days ago, prior to the UI change. 

Therefore, this petition is a plea from every CSer, to revert and roll-back the CS design back to what it was, prior to the 'upgrades' to CS (in mid-November 2014).


CouchSurfing.org should be sustaining and building upon this huge global base of passion & commitment of the CS community that has been created over the last 10 years, otherwise they stand to lose the majority of this dedicated user-base.

If CS does not think it could lose its end-users, it has happened many times in the past, i.e. people leave something that is terrible to use...and that's saying a lot (i.e. the older CS design is better than this newer CS design!)
