nattiejeanne:  I don’t like it at all.

I don’t like that it looks unfinished and choppy.

I don’t like that you can’t see all of the catagories unless the window is maximized and there is no way of scrolling through them. And when it is maximized I don’t like how the categries go straight down in a list.

I don’t like that it took 8-10 tries for the login link to work.

When people make posts it no longer shows what category they posted in. That was always helpful for example with a post like “Should I have sex before marriage” I wouldn’t mind giving advice but if it’s posted in “Christian” I don’t have to bother because I know she wants advice from other Christians on the Christian aspect of sex and marriage.

nattiejeanne:  Oh ha and it appears my profile photo is gone too. Makes sense…since I also had to reset my password this morning even though I’m 100% sure I put it in right. My wedding date is gone too?? Or can you just not see those anymore?

I’m on mobile so I like it, it’s a lot easier to navigate around than the old one and so far it looks like the autocorrect issue is fixed.

it doesnt look friendly to me…. but then again, change is never easy… I guess it is all relative and we will get used to it.

On my phone it is 100xs better. Still slow, but easier to use.

It looks almost like a page when it is loaded incorrectly.  I’m sure we will all eventually get used to it, but my first impression of it isn’t pleasant.

I was viewing the site on my Android phone earlier and was unable to figure out a way to get my phone’s virtual keyboard to appear in the comment box, so I could not post anything.  I found that very frustrating, but it’s easy to post via my computer.

Also while viewing the site from my phone, I could not find the list of threads on which I previously commented; however, I did find that easily when I opened the page on my computer.  I still do not know how to find any of the threads that I started (other than to try to search for them individually by name and topic.)

I definitely miss the text boxes that indicated a thread’s OP’s updates, the graduations of green behind our posts depending on our post count, the ability to navigate the site as easily as before, and several other things that some of you already mentioned.

I also have no idea how to find my uploaded photos now.

Barely anything on this site works at all from my office (I am never on this site after hours) – the browser we use apparently isn’t very compatible, accckk!  It took 4 attempts before it finally let me sign in to post this.  But even then, not much is displaying correctly (no icons in the REPLY menu, sign-in pop up was slow, etc).

playdohpants:  I agree with every point you made!

Not a fan, at all!

Like PP said, it looks sterile and bland.

I cannot figure out how to get to the “sub” boards… rings, recaps, lounge, books, etc.

My favorite feature on other boards I read is “Mark Board Read”. It makes it so much easier to read than trying to figure out where I left off in a thread.

I don’t like it. It’s too much like HB, which is why I stayed here on WB with TTC. I can’t copy and paste anymore and I agree with it looking unfinished. I also don’t like changes very much, sooo….that might have a little bit to do with my review. At least bring back the ability for me to cut and paste using right click!!!!

Ugh I hate it! I hate how it looks on my computer! I liked that I could see tons on threads on one page and now I have to scroll forever to look at them! I don’t like that you see the first few sentences of the thread before you click it! Not good in my opinion!

Yellow.Clover:  Exactly! I dislike the look of HB which is why I stayed on WB.

It does have a few cool features like the REPLY button so we don’t have to copy/paste to reply to people and the comment section looks like it’s from this century but strongly dislike the layout/look of it. Too white and sterile.
