How do you like the new boards?

Me? Well, am not to sure. I feel funny knowing how many times my post was read. I don't like all the server windows that pop up. AND, They have enough ads without adding pop up ads. I have saved my message board in the Outline View format, but if you want to read or respond you get another window poping up. Guess I'll have to get used ot it.

LOL thanks, but I am not so sure. With the nature of my sons illness, it is so hard to have any kind of certainty. He is doing very well right now. And a difference is I am not working so do have time to post & read. I personally know the CL's, we meet once a year. They are all very sweet women.

I have to agree. I don't see what was wrong with the old boards? If it ain't broke then you're not supposed to try to fix it, right? I REALLY miss the old boards!

Hey, Kathy.in.ga - I think you should be this board's new CL. You seem to be a very good candidate and it looks like the other cl's have left? Just a thought!

(((HUGS)))

As a leader on another board, I feel compelled to keep being encouraging and supportive, but quite honestly, I hate it. I'm not wild about 'change' although I'm pretty adaptable ... but change for the sake of 'change' and to not really see a benefit, to me, is stupid. My biggest question is: WHAT WAS WRONG WITH THE OLD BOARDS? I mean, if they went to the trouble of changing, there has to (logically) be a reason, right? SO, what is it?

I 'like' the fact that the emoticons are in alphabetical order. I 'like' the fact that you can save your favorite boards for easier access. Beyond that, gotta say, I just hate it. I hate the new format. Heck, even with the 'outline view' which I use constantly, you have to scroll down a lot to get to see what you've read and what you haven't, where you've responded and where you haven't. A post can get lost if no replies in a day if there are a lot of new posts that same day, and many won't even see it. I see a big decline in the amount of people on all the boards.

So, with my CL HAT off, I'm gonna say that I just HATE IT!

Agreed, I liked the old boards better only because it was easier to see a response and also don't like all the POP-UPS!

Wonder how everyone else feels?
