Agree with what has been mentioned before — the all white is very harsh.  I will definitely be viewing for shorter periods of time.  Maybe that is a good thing.  LOL

There are no words for exactly how much I HATE this new format! I hate all of the white.  I hate how big the adds are.  I can’t see all of the categories for the boards at once. I hate the stupid post previews.  I just hate it all.  I want the old wedding be back so bad!

I’ve been a long term (like, years!) lurker of WB and as I’ve recently set my date I thought it was time to join the fun. Having said that, this new WB is awful!! I can’t stand it! It looked classy and easy to navigate before, now it’s stark and cold and doesn’t look professional any more. (What’s with all the huge cheesy ads?) Sorry guys, I know you’ve worked hard but I judt don’t like this. Plus this should have had a poll attached, but apparently we can’t even do that now?!

Sorry, but I actually hate it.

I have to echo others with the following dislikes:

* The white is way too white. It is harsh on my eyes.

* I hate how there isn`t darker green backgrounds as you get more posts, I was looking forward to “getting darker.”

* Hard to navigate

* Hate having the huge related posts section before the comments box.

* What happened to the OP boxes? 

* Not enough threads per page are viewable.

I’m really sad as I used to love this website and spend hours on it. I won’t be doing that anymore because it’s too hard to look at and navigate the boards which is the main reason I come on here. Very disappointed.

Dislike. A major pain to navigate, especially on mobile. Missing a lot of features I liked (OP box, town/wedding date of users, highlighted topic with post) and only looks mildly better than before.

I’m gonna keep it short… I HATE IT.

EDIT: If it’s not broke, don’t fix it!I can understand wanting to make some adjustments here and there, but to change the whole freaking site like this… WHY?!

Also, where are the icons for posts with polls?! Or are polls gone, because that would be ridiculous considering so many people only vote in polls and don’t post comments.

Mrs_Amanda:  “Very disappointed. 

Like others have mentioned, I relied a lot on the colors [ darker shades for higher post count, the ability to differentiate between topics on the main page], the dates people listed, their location and also avatars– which seem to be WAY smaller while the text seems way larger. 

I feel like I should recognize a lot of posters on this thread, but taking away the color codes, avatars and locations– it makes it harder to keep up with posters I enjoy seeing.

Not. A. Fan.

My thoughts exactly.

I’m usually open to new stuff, but I’m not liking this new wb.

I loved the greenery of the old website, it seemed so welcoming and calming, I could read for hours.

It used to be easy to see OP post, because it was outlined.

There’s too much going on the screen, too distracting (ads, links to other boards). It’s a forum, it should be reader friendly.

Hopefully somebody reads this

I’m not able to use WB properly on my mobile anymore (which is how I predominantly viewed the site) because the dropdown menus don’t work on it with the new format. This means I can’t switch between boards.

I also lost the ability to copy and paste sections of text. Bummer! 

And I agree about load times being unusually lengthy.
