I know most of us are sort of bummed about the changes, but let's point out what we do like, to help us get to know our new home....

Kelly, I didnt know that that's what "macro" was for! I am still learning this new system too. Playing around on the "practice" site was nice, but it was difficult to access all of the features.

I like how you can skip the preview page when replying to messages, that makes it much faster.

Nicole, I know I may be in the minority here but I *love* the new board. The only thing I would like better is if it moved a little faster. But I think that may be due to the traffic on the site due to it being down for so long.

My fav's are the quick reply, the macros, the smiley faces and the tagging and spoiler features.

PS - I also like it that I can tell who last posted to a thread without clicking on it first! On the old board, I couldn't tell and I'd be really annoyed when I clicked on what I thought was a new post only to have it turn out to be my own!

I also love that it tells us when a post was started and who started it.

Well I guess I like that you can see the first post on subsequent pages. I'm sure after a while I'll get used to the new format. I've been coming to message boards for around 9-10 years now and it's always been the same. Can't help but feel like they've gone with a format close to Yahoo Answers though...

I have noticed that the board format like a lot of the other boards I've seen and I have to admit, that is one of the reasons why I liked this board; it was different. Seemed less crowded and complicated but I am getting used to it more and more with each post so I am sure soon I willl hardly remember the old board.

Aimee, I did see that it shows zero new msgs if there have been no replies to your original post and I love that, too!

Not sure that I like anything yet . . . other than the fact that it's up and functional. The orange, boxed iVillage logos all over the place make me want to punch my computer. They remind me of Home Depot logos and besides that, I hate sensory onslaughts of advertisements . . . for anything.

well, I'm a creature of habit... so it's gonna take a little time for me :)

BUT so far, I like that at the top - there is the JUMP TO! I like that I don't have to scroll down to get to a particular section, KWIM!!!
