Mrs. Dragon:  I have to say, I do agree that I’m not keen on having the related topics above the comment box. Particularly as there isn’t the handy coloured framing we used to have to delineate these from the thread, so I keep scrolling across them and thinking they’re part of the thread. Also having the next page thing at the very bottom of the page is a bit odd too. I’d rather the positioning of the related topics and the next page links were switched.

Not a fan of the new look, at all.  I appreciate all the hard work that went into updating this, but it just seems harder to follow and like there’s going to be a lot of annoyances with the boards.

I hate the new layout. I can’t find threads I’ve posted on by checking my recent posts, I have to follow them which I don’t want to do. I also find it really unclear what categories things are in, and I don’t like that you can’t see who last posted.

Yeah, really not a fan at all TBH.

Yes, it really needs some kinks worked out. I like the white, but there is TOO much. My eyes don’t know when things end and new things begin. Layout is also poor in some aspects, like the related topics, etc. I also miss there being different colors for different posters depending on how many posts they have. And of course the handy OP feature is gone – that better come back!

I do hope they work through these things in the next few days. Then I’ll be much more happy. I’m good with change, but I cannot adjust to this easily.

I’ve also noticed that the orignial poster no longer has any way to separate them from the rest of the thread. On the old Bee, there was a small outline around their posts which made it easier for reading follow-ups, etc.

I dont like it at all. Too much white, too many advertisements. The banner across the top makes me ragey. The list of threads looks like ads and articles on a news website. I actually liked the color indcators as to who has high post totals. All the personality and vibe of the bee has been taken away. Just bad IMO. And i havent even attempted to go in and use the site functions yet. BRING BACK THE OLD BEE!

Agree, not cool. Also doesn’t show our wedding dates anymore? My picture is gone…

I wanted to follow a thread I posted on but I clicked the “Follow thread” link and it would change to “unfollow” for a millisecond and then back to follow like I never clicked on it. Same with the login this morning.

The whole layout is annoying and difficult to follow. It doesn’t “flow” like the other layout did.

SO far….

  • my wedding date was wrong
  • I don’t like that I can’t click on ‘wedding related’ boards directly any more.  I have to click on ‘boards’ then ‘wedding’…twice the work
  • I like the look (it feels less ghetto), but it needs some ‘oomph’
  • I miss the OP box

Mrs. Dragon:  Hey! Okay, so we’re all still figuring out the new website as well. The steps to changing your profile picture should work, but if this doesn’t, just let me know. 

1. While on the boards, click on the thumbnail of your avatar in the upper-left. Click on the option “my profile” in the dropdown menu.

2. On the page that takes you too, click on your avatar and there should be an “edit” button. Click that. 

3. Select your file.

<br />I hope that helps!

I’m so confused. Everything in my in-box is marked unread, and I need a way to 1. mark them all read easily, not having to go through hundreds of msgs ten at a time and then 2. delete them, same thing. I also need to know how to see which threads I’ve participated in recently. Can anyone help?
