Hi, all :) Just wanted to let you know that some board changes are going to be rolling out tomorrow night. I don't know what exactly the changes are but I do know they are in response to some surveys that the cl's took.

I'm excited about it! I hope it makes the board a bit more like it used to be!

If you go to the board's main page and look on the right-hand side, there's a thing that says "Site Announcement". If you click on the link, you can see a preview of the new boards. It looks a lot like the old layout.

Yeah it does look a lot like the old layout and I think it will have a good response. I think the fact that there are no more profile icons will help improve page loading time a lot. Also, it seems the previews for posts are gone so if you want to avoid post, you aren't forced to read it without clicking on it. I think it will be great.

Oh, I just went to the preview of this and it also looks like there won't be any text under the thread title either (if I'm seeing this correctly). I hated that about this new layout. Yay!

Yep! No more post preview on the main page.

I think I like the new board changes. At first I got all confused. I thought about it for a bit and finally realized why it was so hard for me to get used to this morning. As much as many didn't like the beginning of the posts being visible (and for some situations, it's completely understandable and I understand about page-load time, too). But, I was using that quite often to kind of jog my memory of what the post was about. LOL! But, I did just fine in the "old" style with just post titles and I'll do fine again once I settle in with this "new" style. :)

I think, overall, I like it. :)

Hi ladies!

We would love to get your feedback on the update by taking this survey: http://www.insightexpress.com/s/NewM184471.

I think the only thing I have thought of so far is that it would be nice to have the little red dot back to be able to tell where there are new messages. I know it says 1 new of 15 but even if that could be a diff colors for threads would new msgs that would help. As it is right now, they all kinda blend together and at first glance it's hard to see which thread have new messages.

This is the only board that I still go to that has a discussion about the boards, so I hope you ladies don't mind if I join in? I'm going to do the survey too.

I like the change so far. I think it's a big step in bringing the boards closer to what they used to be. The only two features that I would love to see on the homepage still are if you replied to a post or not, and the date/time of the original post.
