Add an option to revert back to the old design, so that users that want the old design back, can use that option. This way, can keep their new design as well as keep their loyal userbase happy by doing this.

I'm very sorry you feel this way, but this is simply not possible.  The old site ran on completely different hardware, software, and database architecture; the majority of which, including the data centres that housed them, have been decommissioned.  The pages you can still  see of the old site - namely groups, journals, and the api docs, are running on a single box, that's hosting a read only snapshot of the pages in question.  It's not possible to convert that into a fully functional site, and we wouldn't have the resources to support two sites simultaneously, even if we could.
