'''Note''': This article lists examples which take place within fandoms; not the TV Trope's opinion as to whether a change is for the worse. TV Trope doesn't have opinions. The focus is on over-reaction about minor changes.

* When the staff of the Japanese site Poupeegirl announced that they'd be replacing ribbon sales with the creation of a real-money "jewel" currency, the LiveJournal community and Japanese forums exploded with outrage, fearing the jewel-only items would be the only special items available and the ribbon items would all be hideous things. The jewels were finally launched, and aside from a "jewel floor", nothing was really all that changed, since they could be exchanged for ribbons at a much better rate than bought ribbons. That didn't stop users from complaining even after the change simply on account of Poupee charging users ''for currency they'd essentially been paying for before the switch''.
* Littlekuriboh used some home-made animations for the season 2 finale in ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries''. Of course, that meant ruining the spirit of the series, even if the episode still used around 6 minutes worth of clips from the original anime, and ''the animation was actually good''. Plus he got some other (good) abridgers to voice a few characters, instead of keeping them all for himself. Sorry, but the series is "Ruined FOREVER", kids. Parodied in Episode 48, which has "internet trolls" screaming about the issues mentioned above.
-->'''Various Internet Trolls:''' Why does he keep putting other voice actors in the show?! This guy's such a bitch, ugh! Why is it different?! No more different! I do not like different! Different bad! Me hate different! WHY'S IT CHANGED, WHY?! I'm going to unsubscribe if this happens again!!!
* Lampshaded by "[[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]]" Croshaw when the introduction of an original theme tune and new intro sequence for ''Zero Punctuation'' created predictable backlash; the weekly update to [[http://www.fullyramblomatic.com/ his website]] was titled "You Changed It Now It Sucks". Every week, the video thread is evenly divided between "best one evar!" and this complaint.
* Parodied in TheOnion news video [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBM3j7x4Lcw&feature=channel 'Iron Man' Trailer To Be Made Into Feature Film]].
* TF Wiki, the official Wiki of the Transformers franchise, makes fun of this to the extreme with "GEEWUN", a derogative term applied to people who believe that if it's not Franchise/TransformersGenerationOne, it sucks.
* TelevisionWithoutPity. Bad Sign #1: Three original editors depart a year after {{Bravo}} buys the site. Then the site was redesigned to include a lot more widgets, style flourishes and assorted clutter. More editors left. And the site started covering ''a lot'' more reality programming, especially Bravo's Top Chef, Top Design, etc. and scaling back some of the previously in-depth recaps with more glib, bare-bones "weecaps." About the only things left from the site as it once was are the ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' fangirl bridgade and the recapper Jacob.
* The IrateGamer's Breakfast Rants complain about how certain parts of cereal images changed. For Lucky Charms, it's the marshmallow shapes, while Cinnamon Toast Crunch has him railing against the box only displaying one of the three original bakers. He even ends the rants with "Face it, breakfast is ruined!"
* Parodied with the WebVideo/ThirdRateGamer, who criticizes the smallest of details, regardless if they're trivial or not. In his ''VideoGame/YoshisIsland'' review, he complains that the game is too different from other ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]]'' games, as well as minor details like the fact that the player can jump on Shy Guys to kill them, but not [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2 pick them up]].
** The latter part of his ''VideoGame/CoolSpot'' review has him ranting about the variety of flavors of 7up drinks diminishing over the years. In a similar vein to the Irate Gamer's breakfast rant, he ends it by stating, "Fuck that! Fountain drinks are ruined!"
* Inverted in {{IGSRJ}}'s ''VideoGame/DukeNukemII'' review. He appreciates the [[VideoGame/DokiDokiPanic gameplay changes made to]] ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'' for the US and states how he'd hate to play a remake of [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1 the first game]] [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosTheLostLevels with different levels]].
* The tendency of geeks (especially gamers) to do this at the drop of a hat are parodied in the series of WebVideo/HitlerRants taken from the movie ''{{Film/Downfall}}''.
* On 11 August 2010, web review aggregation site Metacritic redesigned their site. Today, they have 8,000 comments of seething hatred.
* When the snark floodgates opened after [[{{Fark}} Fark.com]] redesigned its website, Drew's four-word response became a site meme: "You'll get over it."
* ''Website/CollegeHumor'' has changed it's Originals intros often over the years, including just recently. It's [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in a Jake and Amir video, when Amir says he hates the new intro "Because it's different!"
* A variant happens in the ''WebVideo/HardlyWorking'' sketch "Sarah's Birthday", where not a SINGLE person remembers the "Happy Birthday song" or how to say it. They resort to singing an alternative song that Sarah hates, but which everyone else loves.
* ICanHazCheezburger's Website/YouTube videos have gotten a lot of flak since they stopped adding lolcat pictures at the end.
* Happens quite often in Website/YouTube videos in mashup videos when copyright is claimed on the any part of the audio. (If copyright is claimed on the video, it is removed entirely.) Website/YouTube offers replacement, royalty-free soundtracks that often don't fit the theme, and don't contain any of the other sounds that were part of the original video.
* ''[[MarvelUniverse Marvel Super Heroes]]: What The--?!'' gained more haters after it changed from a series of comedic stop-motion shorts, to a series of stop-motion commercials for various products with jokes thrown in.
* [[http://splitsider.com/2012/01/the-ballad-of-horse_ebooks/ Multiple]] [[http://gawker.com/5887697/how-i-found-the-human-being-behind-horseebooks-the-internets-favorite-spambot articles]] have been written about why @Horse_ebooks changed and started sucking (on September 14th, 2011.) This is possibly the weirdest example of the trope, considering that Horse_ebooks is a ''spambot on Twitter'' with a strange knack for WordSaladHumor. It turns out that there was a reason for it: in September 2013 it was [[http://gawker.com/horse_ebooks-has-been-a-buzzfeed-employee-since-2011-1377183209 revealed]] that ever since that date in 2011, the account was actually taken over by a human as part of an art project that continued throughout the following two years.
* The ''KnowYourMeme'' Website/YouTube vidoes have gotten a lot of cries of "Ruined Forever!" after Rocketboom sold the rights to ICanHazCheezburger.
* Over time, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic got big on CharacterDevelopment, cameos/crossovers and RewatchBonus storylines, became calmer, his reviewing style included more analysis (mostly at the end) and bratty rages were scattered around instead of appearing every few episodes. The "Bat Credit Card" fans [[note]] basically people who started to watch him because they enjoyed violent acts of anger[[/note]] have complained about this.
* Fans of early [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick Nostalgia Chick]] kicked up a fuss when she stopped doing linear reviews of "girly stuff" with usually only her in front of the camera, and changed it into a MidReviewSketchShow with her friends where they looked at anything she wanted.
* Old-school fans of WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd have lamented the [[TookALevelInKindness diminishing "Angry" aspect]] of JamesRolfe's character, in which more of his RealLife [[MeanCharacterNiceActor personality]] becomes inserted into the videos. Some of this can be attributed to Rolfe not wanting people to project the Nerd onto him as much, as well as his workload (especially TheMovie) making it harder to do regular episodes with the same enthusiasm.
* JonTron invokes this during his review of BanjoKazooie: Nuts and Bolts, where he complains about all the changes to the game. More specifically, he states that he hates that he ''has'' to complain about the change in formula, except that the changes come with bits of the old formula that don't fit the new and detract from the overall experience.
* RayWilliamJohnson of =3 fame has been seemingly coming under fire for changing the show's general format as well as being to "corporate" (he had copyright issues with Maker Studios and went on to make co-create a new studio from the ground up). These complaints may be justified to a certain degree seeing as how the show's overall quality has declined somewhat in comparison to earlier years. Not to mention all the minor changes made to the show such as =3 not having a "question of the day" anymore and actually having decent video quality.
