    I am still trying to figure it out., but I have to agree with you.  Certainly, picture doesn't seem to be as straightforward.  Talk to you soon.

    I agree wholeheartedly.  I'm going to go cry now...  As soon as I figure out how to change my name back to FormerBAM...

    Let's see...issues already...

     

    • have to log in every time. Sometimes, it doesn't set and have to log in again. Sometimes I get logged out randomly while typing a message. (yeah, it says its still beta but who cares)

    • navigation to find the forums sucks.

    • too much clutter on the pages

    • user interface is not friendly (changing names, disabling emails, avatars, etc)

    • loss of old post count! wait til Holly sees that!

     

    Yeah, thats a few for now. Like Nita said, not trying to resist change, but we're going to lose a lot of history from the old boards. Because I can't see them staying up for too much longer.

    But we get POINTS!!  And extra points for answering a question, or providing helpful information that might answer the question.  It is a big change and we were all pretty comfortable with the old one.  Sigh...  I did like the format although this one isn't too different.  But losing the history is a big blow.

    Interesting - if you post in a thread you started, it doesn't seem to consider it the latest post.

    I set my avatar.  It's the only picture I could find on short notice.  Not the best, but the only.

    Re: This board sucks

    Does the avatar take a month to load up?  I put mine on hours ago and it's still not showing up.  Or is there someplace else to set it besides on your profile???

    I agree, not user friendly, avatars are terrible, so on, so on, so on...anyone figure out why they did this?

    I think Jerry had the right idea on one of the other threads, basically the old boards were just up and no one really modded (remember the pic Mike put up with the speed skaters privates hanging out? I think its still up in the archives). This one has more active moderators, and tech support and such.

     

     

    not that I like it any better.

    OMG, what if they don't let Elvis post his avatar with the green slingslot???  This is not going to be as much fun.

    OK, I finally figure out how to add a picture as my avatar. I just want to see if it shows up.
