Does anyone else feel like this new format is really difficult?
 
I am too pregnant and hormonal to deal with this right now. Not only did my husband eat my portion of dinner before I got home from yoga and left me with undesired leftovers, which really aggrivated me, but now i can't figure out this new format. It seems really user-unfriendly!!!!! Like I can't figure out how to jump to the end of a discussion from the main page. There is way less defintion between peoples posts, so it seems really easy to miss someones response...and i just basically wish that they could have just held off until I was done with this forum, dang it. I am basically not very computer literate to begin with and don't do well with change...especially when it means going from something simple to something more difficult. Am I alone or does anyone else dislike this change?

turtlemamameg 05-29-2014 07:11 PM

And i dont like that there is only 10 listing per page i want more to scroll through before having to jump to a new page.

turtlemamameg 05-29-2014 07:14 PM

And the belly pictures are really distorted :( Like looking in a fun house mirror, not funny.

turtlemamameg 05-29-2014 07:16 PM

And there is no bold face lettering for threads with new replies :( I am sorry for this ranting. I am about to just quit this.

LiLStar 05-29-2014 07:19 PM

Well... here's hoping they still have a little bit of tweaking to do to fix it? Because it is kinda ridiculous looking.

LiLStar 05-29-2014 07:31 PM

Wow, yeah, go look around in other areas of the forum, outside of DDCs. It looks WAY better. Hopefully they'll get the DDCs fixed to match

MamaMem 05-29-2014 10:21 PM

Um... who fell and hit their heads then started programming in here?

I have NO head space for such craziness.
and we have no signatures. and no bold face new posts.

I cant even fix a decent dinner right now bc my brain is being eaten by a tiny human...

mareseatoats 05-29-2014 10:44 PM

It's awful!! But don't leave, Meg, you're one of my favorite mamas, we need your kindness and thoughtful posts! They have to fix it. It's almost impossible to use.

farmes94 05-30-2014 07:38 AM

Boo to eating a pregnant lady's dinner!

prettyisa 05-30-2014 10:10 AM

Hopefully they'll fix it some more--it's really hard to differentiate the thread titles from the comments, and some of the threads are missing lots of posts, so my guess is they just aren't done yet. I hope.

sweetestday 05-30-2014 10:43 AM

I can't sign in from my phone anymore. At least it works from my computer.

farmes94 05-30-2014 12:58 PM

I can't really figure out how to use the forum on my mobile device. :serious:

minerva23 05-30-2014 01:04 PM

I am not happy about this change either. Hopefully it will get fixed and returns to a more user-friendly design.

Why did it get changed at all?

farmes94 05-30-2014 01:08 PM

I can't really figure out how to use the forum on my mobile device...:serious:
Everything is a bit disorganized.

turtlemamameg 05-30-2014 07:38 PM

It seems like you can only post an image if you have it already posted somewhere on the internet... I was planning on trying to post a new belly shot, just to see if it posted a bit less like a fun house mirror image, but it says you need a URL. I don't want to post to another website first, WTH!

You know it's funny, but i think when in my last DDC, Sept 2009, this was the layout...certain things are coming back to me that I remember from then; however the layout prior to this was programmed so much better that I am not sure why they would ever go back, seems crazy.

cynthia mosher 05-31-2014 01:51 AM

I've collected your feedback and that of other DDCers who are noting issues. We are trying to work on the deficiencies and problems and hopefully will resolve most if not all. :shy

cynthia mosher 06-09-2014 12:56 AM

Now that the July 2014 DDC is moved to the forums things should be much better. Let me know if you have any problems or difficulty with any features. :)

I posted here - we're missing at least three pages from the birth bead swap thread.

not just that, but it looks like just about everything between may 28th and yesterdayish is gone, plus a couple threads (stroller, for example) have completely different, unrelated posts in them.

mareseatoats 06-09-2014 07:52 PM

Yes, I thought at first my phone was having issues, but it is on the PC, too. I also changed my user pic quite a while ago and it's reverted back. Not a big deal, but not sure why? I assume it has something to do with changing the DDC to a forum - which is much better, I think. So glad the threads are showing up in my subscriptions.

turtlemamameg 06-09-2014 07:57 PM

Things aren't perfect yet, but definitely improving!

@Caledvwlch I've imported in the missing posts here:

Let me know if anything else appears to be missing.

Do you see all the threads now that were after May 28 or are there still some missing? What about the unrelated posts in threads - is that resolved now?

mareseatoats 06-10-2014 12:10 PM

The belly pictures thread seems to be missing quite a bit - or are the pages just showing more posts?

cynthia mosher 06-11-2014 01:17 AM

The pages are showing maaaaaaany more posts. :):thumb

mareseatoats 06-11-2014 11:54 AM

Thanks Cynthia! I thought that was the case, but on my phone it was hard to tell. Not a fault of the forums, just because I didn't want to scrutinize the small text and pictures.
