Eclipse is awful, clumsy and missing features

Why was pagination removed?  Infinite scroll is garbage, every time I click through something I have to start over from the beginning when I click back.  All the other art sites I'm on either got rid of this garbage, or offer a way to turn it off and go back to using discrete pages.

Why can I no longer select-all on my watchlist?  I cannot find out how to select all or remove all.  I have to remove everything one at a time, which takes forever and is not acceptable. 

Why are subcategories gone?  Why is everything all lumped together now so I can no longer browse subjects I'm interested in?

Seriously, this is awful.  Everything is so dumbed down and lowest-common-denominator now; and any kind of "power user" feature is gone.  DA went from having one of the best art site interfaces to having one of the worst.  FFS even Inkbunny is better than this Eclipse crap.

I'm not sure if they've got rid of the Llama Trade thing. I can't see it anywhere at all.

because of the lack of pagination, no one could comment on any gallery list or fave list because of the endless scrolling!.

Pagination will be returning. It's on their list of features to bring back from the old site.

I'm not sure about the select all for Watch, but as RachBurns said, you can report it as a bug or as a suggested feature. Or even suggest what you would like to see on the site by commenting on this journal:

For selecting all in your watchlist, click the checkmark for one and then above it you'll see the select all option. It is a second step but does the job. And as I understand, they're working on pagination? (I'm not anyone who worked on Eclipse, I have no idea why it wasn't already made.)

I did that, but no "select all" option appeared. Either they removed it, or it's yet another part of this new interface that is badly broken.

Alright, I believe you. Can you get a screenshot to https://www.eclipsefeedback.com/?username=Luchog&waDaRef=ioueKckx in the 'report a bug' section?
It might be hard to get into it since a lot of people are reporting things lately. Good luck!
