It seems that the new board format has stifled discussion, atleast so far. Anybody out there?

I agree. I think this is a bit harder to use. Still, it may weed out more casual users.

Why is there a need to weed out casual users?

Other than the new format, this board is still not listed on the main boards. So if you are new you don't know it exists. The CM said a week ago that it was a qlitch and would be fixed, but nothing yet. Once or if they find it they can add it to their favorites but they have to find it first.. This will stop new traffic or regular posters who can't find it now. JMHO.

Perhaps posters who cannot post anything that contributes to discussion?

I think it is a LOT hARder to use, actually, and I don't find myself "getting the hang of it." It's just slow, and the "outline view" isn't that much more easier to use.

(( Must have read it wrong then -- sounded like a *want* to weed out more casual users - kind of like a "yeah it is harder to use but HEY it may weed out those casual users so that is at least a plus" -- I am sure you understand my confusion ))

That's for sure, this format is JUST TOO HARD AND SLOW TO USE despite the heroic efforts of the CL's to promote it.

But then, maybe Ivillage thought there was "too much" debate anyway? :-)

LOL -- one might could buy that if it were only the debate boards that got *updated*.
