    Well, I'm going to be different :)

    I actually like the new forum.

    It has pros and cons, as does anything, but there are several things I like about it, and am going to list them.

    When I was sending a Private Message(and people really should make sure they aren't over the 500, I had 2000 stored up) It auto saved, as does when you are posting in a topic. That is a really awesome feature, I don't have to worry that my time spent typing this will be lost like I normally do on a message board.

    More specialized forums. Now we actually have a sewing machine forum, and a lot more specifics. Makes it easier when I have a question!

    I actually think that in some ways it's more attractive. It's not quite as plain.

    All of the different things I can now add to my profile, and view on others. It's a lot of fun!

    Yes, I could come up with some cons now, but I'm not going to. There are quite a few other posts listing that, and I
    applaud the person who started the "one thing" topics.

    Thanks QB staff for all you do!
    Emily~

    Well, I'll add that the board is growing on me. I'm learning my way around. I just found today at the top of each thread when you open it you can click on the thing that says, go to unread posts.

    The polling feature is quite neat. Someone just used it to poll with or without sashing.
    At least you don't have to go count how many said yes or no. It does it for you.

    I haven't been able to spend as much time on here and I would like, but so far, I have nothing to complain about either. I know the changes were done in good faith and once we all learn to use it (and find all of its whistles and bells!), we'll probably all be grateful for the changes. It will just take time to sift through all of the new terminology and find where everything is located. Still love it here and still love the caring, helpful people... We'll make it even bigger and better than before!

    I really like the Visit First Unread link. To me that seems like the easiest way to make my way around the board. If it's a thread I've posted to I'll see the green arrow on the envelope in the list of threads and then I know I can easily check if there are responses.

    I liked the new look from the start and as I check out different areas I'm finding lots of neat things to explore.

    And by the way, I like different!

    I admit, I do like it. The background color doesn't seem so glaring like it did before. I think in time, we will adjust to it and it will seem like it always was like this. I hope so anyway.

    I like it too. I only really read, on a daily basis, 3 of the forums from the previous board, so no big loss like others are commenting on, but a lot of new improvements for me.

    I love the new look. Still checking everything out. I still hadn't figured out the old board so I maybe it will be easier for me.

    I really like it. The background doesn't bother me. I have my monitor brightness set at medium. This may help some of you with glare issues. Out of the box, monitors are set pretty bright.

    my only wish, and the wish of many others, is for a link for 'Today's Posts'; Vbulletin software offers it and it would resolve the missing 'Recent Posts' link we all miss from the other forum.

    Now that I have been brave enough to play around with it, it really is pretty nice. Just learned how to retrieve my book marks, now if I could just learn to book mark some of the threads that I want to save. I will learn it just takes a little time. The first couple of days, I hated it, but now I really do like it.
