I have tried FF, Chrome and IE.. Can read the replies on IE ! But I am not going to keep flipping - I like my browser I use.

They really shouldn't have messed with it without knowing what was going to happen.  I did read the thread about the 'change' and it CLEARLY said we would not even notice.  Wow !

I printed off a recipe for a friend at work- I was a little embarrassed it was quite plain and all to one side.

Well I hope they figure things out soon and am very disappointed the PPWM thread is gone. We went through alot in that one thread- I loved going back and rereading. Sad its gone now.

Hi Momof.3girls,

I'm sorry you're having trouble with the boards. They're running into problems that didn't show up when they were testing, but when all the members got in here at once, it was a different story, and they couldn't have predicted what would happen. The tech team is working non-stop to fix all the issues. Updates are being posted here:

Several issues have already been resolved, and more fixes are coming very soon. We do understand your frustation, and really appreciate your patience.

The PPWM thread is still there. It's missing a chunk of replies, but they are not lost forever. You should be seeing them back soon.

Hi Tracy,

I would have loved to see your post! Any chance of posting it again?

One of the reasons some posts are getting errors is because there are characters in the title, so until they get that fixed (they know about it), try not to put any special characters, even quotes, in your titles (they're ok in the message itself).

Okay, I posted a big inspirational thing about how frustrated we all are, but to please hang on.   It went to the void.   UGH!!!!

I am not seeing a difference, since I have AdBlocker, I have NEVER seen any ads, so that is not seeming like a huge bonus to me! Undecided

I just deleted my old bookmark and made a new one - the new one works just fine. Guessing they must have changed the URL in the change over.

I kinda miss having Batang as a font choice, and the colors, but that is pretty dang minor.... I am able to read everything and post (using Firefox 16.0.1), except for the threads that are giving me the Guru Meditation error.... hoping that they get those missing user accounts fixed, and that it brings the Please Play with Me thread back to life. I managed to navigate to a post from July of this year at one point, so it is still out there somewhere. I just hope they get things fixed soon enough that we don't loose all our members (and lurkers)!

A short while ?  Its been a short while and this is getting old.

We should be able to use bookmarks if we want and any browswer we want. It takes me three tries to get IE to even open up.. and then this reply crap is terrible.

I prefer using Chrome but I'll use IE since it works for now.  I don't use bookmarks, to me it is easier to use the banner menu from the main page.  The only bookmark I use is for Community Cafe Team boards.  We will all be good with everything in a short while, I'm sure.  I like that the ads are gone!  YAY!!!
