    Unhappy Unable to Adjust

    I have tried ever since "the switch" to familiarize myself with this new platform, but I just do not like it. I have found myself making fewer and fewer posts and when I tried to upload some pics, the site wouldn't take it.

    I felt this way in the beginning as well, but was also determined not to give up. What makes it easier for me now is scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking on "Archives". Once there, you get a list of all the forums. Click on the forum you want to read - the posts in blue are ones that are unread. Once you click on a post to read it, it turns red. Once I have finished reading a post, I click on the "back arrow" at the top left side of the page and it takes me back to the forum I am currently reading. This format is also very similar to the "old" format. I can honestly say that I have not tried posting pictures yet, but will tackle this also when I'm ready to post a picture. Pictures may have to be resized, but will give that my best shot as well. Don't give up yet - try different ways to figure out what will work best for you.

    I clicked on the quilting haven link and they are updating, too! It was pretty tough to get used to this board's changes but I'm finally used to it. I was about to give up, but I'm glad I stayed with it.

    I just go straight to Archive at the bottom of the page and then go to Main. I 'subscribe' to any thread I want to watch.

    I learn something new everyday on this board and the people are so very nice and helpful. I will stay here as I've been on the internet for about 20 years now and this is the best quilting board I've ever found.

    Life is about change !!!
    Any changes take some patience and persistance ... do you buy a new sewing machine and switchover without a learning curve? do you never upgrade your computer? or have upgrades to the programs on the computer? Lots of changes and adaptations for that.

    One thing about modern technology is that we can expect change.
    And we can't escape it, that's for sure!!!!

    As for the other site .... well it seems they've had a bundle of problems recently.
    I think many who left QB have discovered that the other wo/man's grass is NOT always greener!

    This is a great site .... I've learned so much since I joined last year!!
    My thanks to those who have shared and made it so enticing.

    so sorry to see you go... wish you would reconsider. Yes, it takes a while to get used to the new board, but once you get used to it, it's better than the old... and many pictures have to be resized, but on my computer that is pretty easy to do. I wish you the very best! and have a happy new year
    I quilt for my sanity!

    glad I did. I still like how the old forum was, but now I am getting used to this one.

    This site is no harder to learn than the old one was we were just comfortable there so change was hard. keep plugging away it will become easier. We'd hate to lose you.

    I'm going to keep plugging away right here on the Quilting Board...many of our friends that left us when the switch happened, have come back. This is the best quilt group out there.

    I still can not get used to all the "extra's" on here , but I wish you would stay. I keep hoping that there will be better changes. Think about it, please.

    Change is about the only thing that's guaranteed in life as I see it.

    I like both boards and have made many good friends. No two boards are ever the same and I think they all work hard to provide members/users with the best possible experience they can.

    Glad I stuck with it-I like the new board now-just took a bit of poking around!
    It's not a stash-it's a fabric library!

    Sorry to see you go. I think if you hang in there and ask questions here you'll be able to do it. I know when I first joined here and had no clue I just asked and someone helped me and that was on the old board. It seems that every so often computers/programs have to be updated due to all the baloney that is pulled they have to update for all our safety or something will make it better but it takes a little getting used to. Try not to get frustrated and ask for help I'm sure someone will help you and before you know it it'll be like home again. Good luck. Sue

    I agree completely with QuiltE. It just takes time. We have all had to re-learn. The longer you are on it, the more it feels familiar. I can't even remember how the old site was.

    I would miss my daily dose of the quilting board if I left..while I enjoy some of the new features I still would like a few old favorites back like personal diaries and announcements and also miss the feature even if you log out when you come back you could clearly see what you had read and what was new.
