iarebridezilla: agreed 🙁
I usually don’t mind when websites change their layout but I really really dislike this one and can’t get used to it 🙁 I feel like the community had changed as well, and there arent as many people posring anymore. I’m definitely not using it as much, which is a shame because I loved weddingbee!

I honestly feel like I haven’t seen one person on here that actually likes anything about this new layout. So if it’s virtually a unanimous NO for this new layout, why in the world would they keep it? I get so frustrated on here I can’t even tell you. My time here is less and less and I used to love coming on here.

This is awful. I think the site is doomed in it’s current state.

Frankly the WB changes is just like FB, people will complain but the majority are still going to keep plugging away anyway (even if its less). And with the new amount of people that register on daily basis, soon the compliants will fade way. Nothing stays the same forever.

stardustintheeyes: right?? I had a couple thread ideas I wanted to start but it’s just going to be a waste to do it with so many people not around anymore. The only time I navigate back to this site is when I get an email saying someone responded to me. Otherwise I just pop in in the morning and that’s about it.
I’m genuinely worried that the Seattle bee meetup happening next weekend is going to be a flop because nobody comes around anymore so everyone will forget about it and miss it 🙁

Agreed. I sincerely HATE the way the boards work now. It worked so well before, and I really don’t see the point in changing it. At all.
I might consider staying with the community… but I’ve not decided for sure. If more people still came here, I’d probably deal with the bugs, clumsiness, and poor formatting choices…. but as very few bees actually use this anymore… I don’t know. I’m not sure it’s worth it anymore. Which makes me really sad. I was so excited to start using this site to plan once I’m engaged, which could be as soon as a week from now. I suppose I missed out.
I wish the admins would realize that they’re losing members and traffic, and in trying to keep this site going they’re fighting a losing battle. The sooner they go back to the old way, the better off the site will be.

Another one here who hates it. Feels like the Admins don’t care, there were threads with suggestions but to me nothing has changed.
The white is boring and confusing. The threads look old and hard to distinguish and so many people have left. There’s nothing good about the new changes at all.

Also missing the old format, this one takes so long to load on my phone and it’s difficult to navigate too.

Sorry for the double post, but I wanted to make sure more people saw this. I’ve made a poll about the change, in hopes that it will make things a little clearer. Spread the word about it to get a more representative sample.<br /><br />http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/poll-how-has-your-activity-on-the-boards-changed-since-the-site-layout-changed/#new-post

Well I’m glad there are so many people who share my opinion and are having a harder time navigating the site (not because misery loves company, but because I was starting to feel dumb for not being able to navigate as easily lol) I get that things change, but it was working so well before this!

BellaDee: That’s what I was wondering, I don’t understand why they can’t do this?

Soon_To_Be_Mrs_Biker: I’m sure there was a lot of work that went into the new site– but ever since it launched, I find myself staying away. I used to check into Weddingbee at at least once a day….but there’s something about the new format that I don’t find as comforting. Maybe it’s the bright white– things look “new” and “updated”– that’s for sure.
But I can’t find things as easily– and I loved it when you went to the boards, there was a hole long list of stuff to browse from. Having a preview of the actual thread makes it hard to focus on the subject. I haven’t been around in so long because I just don’t like the new layout!
