I honestly get a headache from the new site. I think a lot of it has to do with the bright white background. Ugh.

lia22:  I used to come on here a lot but this new layout is just annoying.  Makes me not want to go on anymore.  I used to look forward to it while drinking my morning coffee but now I just go onto Pinterest.

I can’t help it, I’m just checking out.

I just typed a response to a different thread, trying to get engaged in WB again, and….somehow the page refreshed right as I was going to hit submit and WB lost my post. With all the other annoyances, I just couldn’t be bothered to retype it. There’s a point at which the frustration exceeds the fun.

I’m waiting for the site to become more user-friendly, along with a lot of other people it seems.

I agree with julies1949.

I’ve been posting a lot less lately, because WB isn’t as enjoyable anymore. It’s more frustrating than fun and it’s not just because of the bugs – this whole site still feels like a downgrade. At this point, I don’t think it’s a case of people not liking change. I think the new site just isn’t really worth it for a lot of posters. Also, I’m frustrated with how cluttered the Support board is. No one is responding or dealing with the problems people are having (especially the privacy related issues) and we aren’t getting updates on the progress/changes anymore on the main board.

I have noticed SO many new member. This is a great thing!!

I bet the new format is attracting new members. Once you get over all the nice things we vets were used to.. the new format looks pretty badass.

I agree with MissTatas, the white background hurts my eyes.  I know the previous site was a pretty old message board style, but that’s actually what I liked about it.  It reminded me of my favorite message boards from years ago.

I still haven’t figured out how to get to the Wedding Related board in one click.  I don’t see it in the filter list.  Is it not something I can filter for?  Am I missing something?

I’m not posting as much either. It’s hard to deal with the new site, and having to wade through things just makes it all the more difficult.

pinkkillersheep:  Your can filter Not Wedding Related at the main board or under any Not Wedding Related board.

I’m not sure.. but I know that I have hardly used it since they changed it bc I don’t like it at all and find it way more of a pain in the ass to navigate. I used to be on here constantly and now I hardly am bc I get frustrated within minutes

The new layout is annoying and is not user-friendly ; it’s hard to navigate and it’s slow. Nothing to keep me around as often as I used to, which is unfortunate because I loved WB before the changes were made. I’m not opposed to changes, except when they feel like a downgrade, and it’s pretty much the case here.
