New look on forum. Uggg! Or, maybe not . . .

New and different isn't always an improvement.

The former format was, IMHO, far more clear and "friendly."

Things seemed to have changed overnite. Thought it was just my computer being independently active while I was sleeping. It does that sometimes. If this is indeed a permanent change, I like the old way better.

Ditto. Not just because I'm "used to the old way" but because it was a much cleaner presentation. It wasn't broke, folks.

IMO, it's hard to read because the topic links don't align, and because the member names are too prominent relative to the topic headings. Don't know about anyone else, but I select what to read according to the topic as opposed to who posted it.

Not a good change, guys. Put it back the way it was. It worked just fine and it looked great.

The changes you are seeing are only interim.
The new site will be released in about 1 hour and then you will be able to view the real changes to the forum.

I don't know when the appointed hour will arrive. I do hope it looks different than this one. I find the colors and format are more difficult to read. Reminds me of another forum in the Chapala area. I've always been open to change but please, don't make this the final one.

I don't consider myself a goober, thank you very much!!

Hey, looking really good now! Everything is clean, organized, and MUCH easier to read. The content pages are an enormous improvement, and the new navigation is great. Bravo, and many thanks to the team.

PS I wanted to start a new thread without the Uggg! but the "Post New" button is disabled.

Went into town to run errands. Got back and the whole site has changed again just since this morning. Startling what happens when I am away from my computer! Anyway, if this is the "real" new look, it's much better than the interim but will take some getting used to. Old familiar habits, like old familiar friends, are hard to give up.

Nice job!

I'm only starting to scratch the surface and can see already how the homepage and sections etc., are light years better, both design-wise and functionality-wise.

(For people like me who hang out mostly in the forums, I encourage you to check out the rest of the site!)

I've seen other internet communities go through hellaciously traumatic re-designs so I must say I'm VERY impressed with how cleanly you've managed the transition so far. I can only imagine how much work has gone into it. So thank you!

°Felicidades!

I was/am logged in. Tried logging out and back in. Also tried refreshing, and "Post New" is still dimmed. Don't worry, I'll email the help account if it persists, so just sit back and bask in the compliments! :)

The new format is awesome, as they say back in SF. I love it- much cleaner, more professional! I'm looking forward to checking out more of the articles posted on the home page, now that I can easily see what's there.

This clearly was an awful lot of work. Thank you.

Generally speaking it looks good. Well laid out, maybe itís my high resolution LCD monitor or something but before the fonts were a bit thicker/darker on the main text or message area. They somewhat appeared bolder and easier for me to read. Now even when I press the Ctrl + keys to magnify, thus making the fonts larger and easier to read, as in the past, when done now, unlike before, it now expands to far left and right and cuts off some of the text one is reading.

Not sure if itís just my system or is the fonts thinner or perhaps less bolder for anyone else who may enjoy bolder/darker fonts?

I love the new look. Fresh, clean, hip and a great improvement.

Great job. It's not easy to pull this off.

It's pretty grey on my screen and not easy to read. I missed the interim forum. I cannot log into my email even though I am giving it my name and password - I'm being told it is invalid - any solutions on that one??

Additionally, I can reply to threads but cannot post a new topic - the button is not working for me. Also the threads are not showing as read until I refresh the pages - this must be my computer - or is it??
