How come none of the available subscriptions in the User CP offer an option with a print subscription? With the new babe on the way, I want to start my subscription with Mothering again and really wouldn't mind paying extra to be a supporting member. I was rather surprised to see that there is about every option you can think of except for one that includes a print subscription. I know I spend a bit of time online here, but when it comes to magazines and books, I prefer the print version so I can read it anywhere and share with anyone I want to.

Any thoughts about including a print subscription with any of the MDC supporting member subscriptions? Pretty please!?

Is this the new mothering forum color? White & purple? Or is my computer screen playing tricks on me?

When I go to the mothering.com/discussions main page, everything looks normal. But as soon as I click on a forum (like this one - the questions and suggestions one), the colors are totally different, which I can handle, and the thread titles are all centered in a column, which makes them really, really hard to scan quickly. What happened? Why is it like that? I want all the thread titles aligned along the left the way they used to be!

I went in to user cp to see if I could change this back, but I don't see an option for this.

Help!

For a while, I had a very nice looking, new background for MDC. I think I made a mistake and messed with the style options in the bottom left corner of the page and now I'm back at boring Tan II. So, is a new background being trialed? If so, can I vote "YES".

MDC mods and webmaster/admin people - the new look is nice.

I have two questions, though:
When I go to a forum, all of the threads are center-justified. Is there any way to left-justify them on my screen? Are they going to stay that way?

also

I've always found the threads I posted to earlier (i.e., when I go back to them later in the day to follow up) by clicking on my username at one of my posts and searching under "find all posts by". There's no drop-down-box anymore. Is this coming back?

Thanks!!

Miss the old colors. Easier on the eyes, less glare.

As a daily MDC user I just logged on to find that MDC is all in blue. Is this everywhere or just my computer? I find it VERY unappealing and it hurts my syes to look at! The old format was so much better. What is going on?!

So, my friend says hey check out MDC's new layout. But it looks exactly the same to me. Is one of us smoking something?

Love the new layout so far! I'll have to explore more when I am done cooking.

Since the design change, I'm unable to access a few of the links, right above the Notices bar. For example, when I click on Quick Links or Search, nothing happens. If I can't access Quick Links, is there another way to get to my Subscribed Threads?

Thanks!

I am glad you like it. This is what everyone has been busy with lately.

There are still some kinks to work out but it is so refreshing.

If one dislikes change they can still find the old skins down in the dropdown at the bottom of the page.

Yeah I am aware Quick Links is unhappy.

We will be getting some of the forum kinks ironed out.

Are you using Internet Explorer? What version?

That centering thing makes me unhappy when it does that. You can still use the old skins by clicking on the drop downs at the bottom. It isn't centered in firefox. :
