Not to complain (LOL) but this board is very hard to read, and not just because of the new organization----the print is way too small for these old eyes!! And I don't even need glasses.

I am with you. It seems like having the board this way really takes a lot of time. I surf at work and don't always have the time and now I won't have nearly as much time. I really liked it better the old way.. Oh well, they call this progress?

I'm pretty sure that a request has been made about the font size. Hopefully when they get everything launched & the dust settles, they will switch to a larger font.

For those of you who need to skim/surf quickly, try the outline view (in the cream colored box). It will open the board up so it looks more like the "old" way.

I'll give these new boards a try but I think I'll probably go in search of something easier to read and search through... I will miss my morning ritual of looking for good freebies!

I agree, this absolutely sucks. With two small children (21 & 5 months) I have very little time. I usually skim the board pretty quickly...You can't skim this format quickly & my time is at a premium. I'll try it for a day or so, then I guess I'll have to find some new groups. I can't believe that they spoiled a good thing...and boy, were these boards a really good thing.

Peace, Lisa

Does anyone else use AOL to read the board? Itried to use AOL and the outline format and it doesn't work. AOL told me that it is not a "user friendly" format and is not compatible with them. Now I love this board and I didn't want to switch but I may have no choice. Can anyone help me?

A lot of the things on AOL are made so that they can make more money by requiring you to use their software by making it hard to get into other areas.

Go ahead and sign into AOL. Then open Internet Explorer. You should be able to get to these boards with no problem in IE. Same thing if you're using iChat in the iVillage chat rooms. You'll need to open IE to use it.

I used to have AOL but I finally got tired of it and switched!

Thank you. I just found out what the problem is. AOL has an automatic pop up stopper and you can't read this board in outline format without pop-ups. Now I have to figure out how disable the pop up stopper in AOL or in IE.
