how many of you are starting to get the hang of this new stuff!

I'll check back in when I get home. If I can get DS off my computer and on to his!

I don't like this new format and find it so unbelievably slow and cumbersome that I'm coming here less and less just to avoid aggravation!

I could write you a long laundry list of ALL the problems but suffice it to say that it's more then S-L-O-W and I have quick direct access. I honestly have no clue as to ANY real advantages this change was intended to cause! OK, I do like the direct email feature but if the recipient has not updated THEIR registration page, who knows where the emails are going to because ivillage has still NOT set up an ERROR message notice on the former ivillage email system!

I'm now experiencing a NEW frustration... A few days ago, I made it a point to READ every post so that once the color change took effect, I would easily see the new (added) posts... Well, the next day and again today, ALL the posts are back to being orange as if I've not read ANY of them! And, the entire *new* post sequence on the MAIN board is back to telling me that EVERY post is new even though I did open and read 95% of them!

I vote that we petition (in a nice way) for ivillage to bring back the old format!!! If anyone else is reading this (if you can find it) please ADD your thoughts... perhaps (this time) ivillage *will* listen....???????

I have figured out the way to find just the new posts - at the top of the board, when you get to this specific board, click log in and then it will set and mark all the new posts you haven't read so you can find them.

If you log in at the first ivillage main window, this doesn't seem to happen, and they all come up as new to you even if you've already read them... very annoying! Try it and see if it helps...

Hi Chris,

I'm getting the hang of the new board but it is very time consuming!! The other board seemed to work better for me!!

Chris,

I posted you a message about what I don't like about this new board, and it disappeared. I definitely hit post and I saw it. An hour later it was gone. This is very frustrating. I'm on the verge of leaving the board. This format is so awful, and slow too, that I just don't enjoy coming here anymore.

Yea, too time consuming. I gotta open it and then open it in outline view cuz it's the only chance i have at understanding it. too cumbersome. luckily, and i don't know why, but now the posts i've already read are green and new ones are red - that helps, but by the time i get a dang post opened i've gone thru so much i can't really focus on the post!
