    What has happened to the forum?

    What has happened to this forum? The look has changed dramatically from the last time I was here maybe a week or so ago. I can't find my way around and I'm finding it very confusing and hard to navigate. I'm computer proficient so that is not the issue. It's the design and layout that I find very off-putting. I used to come here to relax and enjoy the forum, but this new look is frustrating and annoying. Just my two pennies worth...

    They decided they should "upgrade". Many unhappy folks....
    TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

      The upgrade happened in the later part of February and a lot of kinks have already been worked out. Many more are still being worked out. If you take your time and be patient I think you'll find that it'll be back to "normal" operation soon.

        Hi Suzette...We have a new normal now since the site was upgraded, but it is still being tweaked to get rid of a few bumps. The more you log in and navigate it the easier it becomes. Almost everything is different for sure, but some things are better. Hang in there....

          I felt the same way but you do get used to the layout. I quite like the way the pages are spread out and somehow easier to access and read. Think you might agree the more you use it.

        Looks like I made my first 'response' mistake😢 Chose 'comment' instead of 'write something'. Will know next time!!!

          I found out if you comment, the other person can't quote you back either.

            And you also can't "thank" them for that comment. It would be nice to be able to do that if they have added some needed and useful information

          it has been upgraded as they call it. I agree much more frustrating and difficult to use. photos are a royal pain. size, etc. Don't like that at all. but sigh, it's supposed to be progress. this is not the only forum to upgrade and use smaller photos too.

            The software was old and as such the site was unsecure when you logged, Many people were starting to complain about that. So they upgraded to a forum software that would still have support and be secure.

              This is good to know. Shame on me, I had thought, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." But I guess it was "broke"!

            One of my favorite things is that posts from people you block or unfriend don't show up at all. The old forum showed they were there and you had the option to view if you wanted, but now they don't show up at all.

              I think lots of us are just getting used to the new changes. It's clear this upgrade is for keeps due to technical reasons. Moderators, esp Karen, are very receptive if you have trouble with a specific area. Just post your Q on the Squeaky Wheel. And forum members are great about helping each other out. Hang in there.

                  Good morning, everyone! The upgrade was done with a lot of consideration about what we were facing. It was not an easy decision. The old forum software was going out of support, so we needed to move forward to protect everyone from potential problems. It also means many of the features we were used to were also going out of support... and some of them were never ported to newer releases. We're working diligently to put everything in place and spruce up the place to feel more like home! Thank you all for your patience and for sticking with us during the tough transition.

                    I don't like the change either or any change for that matter but that's just part of life. I find that
                    usually after I adjust and get used to a change it turns out to be good! Just saying!

                      I am still finding it all a bit challenging to navigate, find or wrap my head around. lol BUT, this is my quilting sanity place and I will be like that nice mouse looking for the cheese in the middle of the maze.

                        We'll make sure there's less maze and more cheese. Thanks! 😁
