- Wedding: October 2014 - Savannah, GA
I thought I would try getting used to the changed when the new Weddingbee rolled out, but I still hate it just as much. It’s so much harder to see what is going on with the boards and physically hurts my eyes. It’s also so annoying that the wedding date of posters doesn’t show up anymore. The dates make it much easier to give advice to posters. Going back to the old Bee would be a dream come true. It’s another case of not knowing how good you had it until it’s gone. Anyone else just as upset?

dancindavinci: I agree with you. Of course we know the old WB is never coming back. It’s painfully obvious by now that the Boards are the lowest of the low on the priority list of WB. We just have to deal with it.

dancindavinci: I feel the same way. I don’t like this version at all.

I’m on only a fraction of the time I was before, so therefore not seeing all those annoying advertisements, which I’m sure helps pay for everything. I used to float around about 6 different topics/boards, but now just look at wedding related. Oh well, after my 2nd daughter to marry does so in August, I guess I won’t have to be around.

dancindavinci: I’ve acclimated to it. I do miss the traffic the old site had, and I’m hoping it picks up. They are fixing things piece by piece, and I hope an option for a colored background is one of the things that gets added. I also hope it gets easier to navigate between boards.

I’ve gotten used to it. I wish they would show the date next to the name as well but if I feel the need to give advice based on their date I just check their profile.
The only thing I still dislike a lot is the color of the OPs responses. It is a different color now, but it’s not different enough that I can see it unless I tilt my computer screen at a weird angle.

It’s better now that I can at least see who the last poster on a thread was , and the OP’s posts are slightly highlighted, but not having the wedding date makes me nuts!!! It’s KEY information!
I also dislike that in my mailbox, if I click a response I’ve gotten, I then have to clicke as SECOND time to get to the actual comment. Extra clicks are annoying!

I hate it, but i’m also over it..if that makes sense. You have to accept it for what it is. Limit your time if you don’t like it or find a new site. At this point it’s a little like “OK – we get you hate our site, so join X or Y or Z then, because we aren’t changing back!” There’s really not much else.
I limit my time, I post when I see fit, I barely log in and just browse and comment when I see fit. Using the mobile version is still slow as ever to load each page…so that’s also limited my time. Get a bigger server!

dancindavinci: I don’t mind it, but they’ve made some changes for the better since The Big Change.

I agree 100%. Initially I was in love with the idea of something new and exciting, but this is prolly my 2nd time logging in since the new changes and I used to be here every single day. It completely hurts my eyes and the old bee made me wanna stay on constantly. If this were just the phone version or app version it wouldnt matter so much I suppose….I miss the old bee!

dancindavinci: It’s slowly getting better, but the latest thing to wind me up is the fact that on threads the page numbers are now only on the bottom of the page, so I can go into a thread with no real idea how long it is, and keep having to scroll to the bottom of the page to find my place. It’s really annoying, and that’s come in recently, because they were at the top and bottom when the site first changed.

I’m fine with the changes now. Some of the new stuff is nice and they are fixing the bugs slowly (YAY i can delete stuff in my inbox now!) so its fine. I really am only on the TTC boards so the ladies i like are still regular.

dancindavinci: I think it’s gotten a lot better, a lot of the stuff that bugged me more has been fixed, the font, the OP boxes, the last poster now shows on the main board, same as the board where a topic has been posted.
A lot of stuff has been fixed and if you look in the ideas board you can see the things they’re working on and planning – the wedding dates and locations will come back. I’m sure these are things that no one realized were so important/significant until they were gone. I never realized how much I relied on it until it wasn’t there.

Another bee wanting the old WB back! I took a break, came back this week and feel like I will never get used to this.
