For a couple of days now, Orkut Media page has been removed from the menu. It can still be accessed from http://media.orkut.com/

According to Garett Rogers there is a new entry in robots.txt of Google pointing to /orkut/albums

Any new changes coming soon? Orkut desperately needs a facelift. It looks like an adopted child with no coherence with Google colors or Design. Not to mention the "Donut" Error Pages...

The donut error pages appeared on Gmail for me in May 2006. Not the exact same but it did say the server couldn't have a donut.

i think they plan on getting rid of the media page. i was actually surprised that there was one since google usually doesn't create that kind of content. maybe they'll replace it with some user created media base thing.
