I'll post here. But the new board look is terrible. The navigation GUI leaves a lot to be desired. Someones kid designed this and who ever approved it should be on the unemployement line soon.

Neither do I. I'm not sure I'll ever "like" the navigation. And I don't like the ads popping up in the middle of the threads. There's plenty of room for ads in other spots, imho.

I read at least 5 other boards outside of Ivillage. They all have similar feels and GUIs. These have become industry standards.. Why? Because it works. Like I posted on a couple of other boards. I think the regulars will find a way to stick around, but they may lose a lot of the lurker and newbie traffic. Less traffic means less advertising. Less advertising means goodbye boards.

Because of the layout I think a lot of posts will go unread or unanswered. Serioulsy what the hell were they thinking?

I agree that I too dont like the new look. The beauty of these boards was in its simplicity to navigate and that is gone.There are plenty of other sites with high tech look but very few posters.I would hate to see less traffic as that means less advice for crucial topics.All boards have been very helpful so far but doubt for future.

The 'outline view' has gone which was very helpful.

Oh yea one more note for the Ivillage people.Sounds like a disco band. Hee hee hee

That logo where the avatar should be, looks very familiar. I hope the designer gave you a discount.
