I'm sorry your frustrated with the new format.
When you see it coming, duck!
I too hate this format.
IT is and the British edition is as frustrating.
I see not many discussions anymore and finding the debate or discussion too difficult afyer the clean quick lists.
...well...if you open the individual folders, there are plenty of lookers, just not a lot of posters...it doesn't bother me...I've figured out how to reply to the person I want to reply to and who each post is meant for and, when I do open individual folders, I can see the latest post, who started it, how many views, and who last responded....but, you know what...I am a born and bred Army brat/wife (31 years) so me and change are good friends...you would not believe the money I've put into papering and painting and moving/buying furniture so that my house looks different every 36 months...oh wait, you Hold, might believe the amount....ahahhahahaa...sorry, cheap joke at your expense...sorry, I am...
I'm sorry that you're finding the new format frustrating.
...well, this thread has had 294 views since it was posted...but, maybe 10 replies...so, people are opening and reading...but, not responding...they're finding it and the "reply" button is easily found...so, they just don't want to reply...I think a lot of people are put off with change and when something doesn't flow as easy as it did, they give up...they're finding it, though...
Are we sure that those 294 views are different people? Or is it the same 6 of us looking again and again to remind ourselves where we left the discussion?
Ivillage can tweak all they want.
