I think what many forget is that this is very new, and still being worked out.

Besides, some bees may forget that change is not a bad thing, and maybe many didn’t like the old weddingbee just like many don’t like the new.

Hell, if I had come and joined this site as-is now, I would be devestated and leave immediately were it to change back to the old site. It wasn’t user-friendly, not modern, not easy, everyone was just used to how clunky and badly set out it was.

People adverse to change will never accept it.

Sorry you are leaving, I understand how you feel about the new layout, I don’t like change much and am not keen on the new layout. I am too fond of Weddingbee (more like addicted to lol) to leave though, so I am hoping I get used to it eventually!

I agree. It effing sucks. If I wasn’t a member and came here looking to join, I would have just moved on. I sincerely hope they change it back. I’m not even bad with change, but this layout just sucks. It doesn’t even work properly on my computer (the drop down menu will not go away, so I cant even see the first few topics!)

Yeah, I’m not going to frequent here as often anymore.. currently searching for a new website to join up on. It sucks because I really liked this place, but the layout is horrid. WAY too many adds, that are WAY too big. Also, it’s lagging my computer OUT. I have a pretty good computer [need one for gaming] at that, but when I’m doing my wedding thing, I normally have like 12+ windows open.. but if I have more than 1 or 2 weddingbee windows open, my shit starts freezing. No thanks.

I may not be on here as much, I miss a lot of the old features. I also just hate changes in general.

okqueenbee:  I agree; it’s bad. I can see myself coming on a lot less, because it’s just a pain to navigate.

If you wanted to post criticisms, they’ve opened a section of the site to do that so changes could be made.  Other than that, these complaint posts are getting very tired (especially the massive exaggerations, like “time” it takes to switch between pages and such that you said).  Obviously people don’t like it, but making 500 different threads about whether you like it or you don’t is just a big ol’ waste of time.  I don’t like it either, but I don’t need to make some flounce post about not liking it.

I may drift away as well. before I’d spend a ton of time just popping around, but now I get uncomfortable after going to the main board list once and call it. I hate so much about it… It isn’t comfortable to use at all! I’ve been voting on the suggestions page, an I hope that helps something.

I am kinda with you guys.  I understand that it will take time to get used to, but my computer and eyes just can’t handle it sometimes which makes me sad.  I really am hoping they take  more of our changes into consideration (I know they will be doing some which is good) but until then I may be less frequent.  I guess I will be more productive now haha!  I actually think it is good that we are voicing our opinions.  They are seeing them and tweaking the site because of it.

MagnoliaBlossom:  Agreed. Aside from that, I think a lot of us have an emotional attachment of some sort to the site from spending so much time here. I think it’s fine to express the unhappy reactions we’re all having.

I’m not a fan of the changes but I think they’re listening to everyone’s complaints. I’m going to stick around and see if improvements are made. I may not be on as much in the meantime though. My husband will probably be happy about it lol.

I’m sorry you are leaving.  Have you seen the new post by Penguin on the boards?  They are working on a lot of the things that people are commenting on and there will be new changes coming.

okqueenbee:  LMBOOOOO!  Oh, I would have commented sooner, but the new layout kept jerking me around. I might have even commented on another post inadvertently!
