to grow on us.

We know that the change is dramatic and will take quite some time to adjust to. But we are Military Wives, accustomed to change in our lives. Let's not let something like a new format stop us from offering support to one another. ESPECIALLY now when the world is so turbulent.

Give it time. It'll be ok

I am having mega-problems this morning. The boards just aren't loading good for me. I am going to have to give up boards because it takes longer to read the boards. I also find the format really confusing. I have switched to outline view but I still have problems figuring out which posts are new and which ones I have read. I really miss the embed board fixture. I don't like the idea of having to click on every post to read the replies. Since this board fills up face I just feel like its going to consume to much time.

I totally agree. Change is scary at first, but this will never stop me from posting here!

Thanks for your words of encouragemnet, Rose. I look forward to being 'comfortable' with the new boards, but they seem to be geared more towards boards that don't archive (approx.) every day. I can see the benefits of the new format, I just feel that it's not the best 'fit' for our fast paced board.

Rose You are one powerful lady. I took your advice and tried again this afternoon since I don't have to watch the clock and things ran alot better. I am giving up my drink coffee and post before the kiddos wake up posting and maybe just log on around lunch time. That way I don't have to watch the clock as closely.

I have been posting normally and I am getting used to this. I figured out how to bookmark posts so if you have major questions you can bookmark and come back to that question.
