Hey ladies,

I know these changes are confusing and weird, but I want to ask y'all to hang in there and give it a bit of time. I've requested several "folders" (headers) to be added to the board, including RAKs and Swaps and Secret Scrappers. In the meantime, just post under one of the other folders .... it'll be fine! Once they are added, I think navigating will be easier.

Susan's asked that the link to our board faq & swaps site be fixed. I have no clue when they'll get to it, but I'll try to bump Susan's post with the swap URL in it to the top periodically.

About archives ... old posts from before the format change (Karen says they go back to around the beginning of the year) can be found by clicking on "archives" in the tan box above. There *are* numerous pages to scroll through, a huge PITA I realize. So it might be more expedient to do a keyword search (again, in the tan box above) to find an old post.

I have no clue when or how posts after the format change will archive. If I find anything out about that, I will LYK!

I know I'm in the minority here, but other than the initial confusion of getting used to how this new system works, I really do think it's kinda cool. To have all these cool new features (editing posts, searching, buddy lists, PM'ing, etc) with our old format would have been ideal, LOL, but I think we can adjust to the new look.

Cheers ladies! And if this gets too bothersome for you, just go scrap awhile. ;)

I agree some of the new options are kind of cool! I think it will just take time to get used to the new "look". I like being able to edit messages too- I make mistakes all the time! LOL!

Yeah, I just popped and I was like "What the...?" I'm sure I'll get used to this, but boy I'm confused right now!

I love new things!!!!! I am gonna love that email feature, that's for sure, and to be able to search by topic instead of weeding through reams and reams of threads.....wow, what a timesaver.

I like the new setup!

Well, I guess it's good that no one has to set up the board every day!

Also, if I add someone to my list of friends, what exactly does that do - anyone know?

I don't know why, but everytime I try to post I have to sign in again, which I never had to do, is anyone else having that problem?

I am getting used to it, now that the headers are up!

Debra

Ok Barb...now that we have the new headers I have to say it's getting easier. I know we will all get used to this new board and will probably enjoy it even more. Thanks!

From what I've gathered, you really need to login everytime you come to the board. That's the only way you can reply and keep track of the posts you've read.

this will be good, just wish you could browse all the responses to a post without having to go to the outline view.

Debra, be sure when you log in, that you check the box that says "save password" next to the log-in button. Try it and see if it helps. I think you might have to log-in each time you access the board though. ??

Did that each and every time I signed on - didn't help. I guess we do need to keep signing on. I will just keep the page minimized and keep refreshing it. That seems to be the easiest thing to do so far.

Is your computer set to accept cookies? (In IE, look under Tools, Internet Options, Privacy.) If so, I'm guessing this is just a glitch. I'll see if others are having similar problems.

I've found that you do have to log in each time you first bring up the board, but you shouldn't have to log in each time you post. How do you usually navigate? I keep the board open in one window, then open individual posts in other windows. Not sure that makes a difference re: the log-in (vs. using your back button to navigate). ???
