    I miss the old flow. The contacts showing up on the right side for one.


    I suppose it is a matter of getting used to it. That remains to be seen whether I will or not at this point.

    I think it's a work in progress, see the thread on the help desk.

    you mean that your pics are not apart of your profile view any more?

    Uh, dear, how much time have you been able to invest to come up with that conclusion? :biggrin1:

    So far, I've only seen a couple of minor cosmetic changes...

    Edit: Wow, three beat me to it in the short time it took me to type my response... this was addressed to Dragonfly!

    The front page seems bigger. I like it. It has a wide screen look to it. Some kind of visitor page in our profiles. Very interesting. Give it a chance.

    Because the latest threads, latest posts, latest blogs are missing on the right side.

    Well lets give it chance. There will be many more changes to come. We are looking at a unfinished work.

    I don't like the profile page changes, either.

    As for other changes, such as topic icons, users online... they were here before but were taken away by the last update. Not sure why someone wouldn't like the old features returning. :confused:

    As stated in this thread, the (un)availability of some features and functions is only temporary.

    I see one new feature that tells you how many replies you have in a thread.

    Actually, it's not new but a reinstatement.

    There's no link to the photos a member has posted from his/her own profile! Not one that I could find, anyway.

    Weird. I guess it's still a work in progress.

    Ditto! :12:

    I have never adjusted well to change; especially change I didn't initiate. I'm sure I'll get used to it, but right now the site is visually distressing for me. I'm not sure why, as it's still black, white, and gray; but I'm not liking it.

    Agreed. The new layouts are horrid and laborious.

    Newsflash from five years ago, sysops: UI improvements involve simplification of access to the most important functions. If you're adding clicks or steps to get to things we're accustomed to seeing at a glance, you're going the wrong direction.

    I have yet to see anything that has been improved.

    agree. otherwise, it's all right and probably just a matter of getting used to it.

    You can change the color scheme in windows. I have mine set at High contrast Black. I see everything with a black background and bright colors. No more plain white and grey for me.
