    My congratulations and support to all the people who run this Board!

    You did a wonderful job in the past and obviously have grown up from the previous version of this site.
    I see how hard these changes are for members... sorry
    But I do understand how really hard it is for all of you who is working here for us, who is trying to do the right thing for all the quilters here and I want to send you mine thank you for keeping up with time and our needs.

    THANK YOU!

    I think it will just take a little time to get used to the new forum. We get stuck in how we used to do things . So far I have figured out most of it. Still browsing around. I think most people just want to be able to get on and go but after a little while this will seem just like the old way.Great job moderators and please be patient with us.

    The look is great! I agree with JSNOMORE that we need to get use to the new ways of doing things and please be patient with us.

    I give my thanks also. In a few weeks, all the members will be well adjusted to the format and finding all the enhancements to be
    wonderful and innovative instead of foreign and bad.

    My thanks also to the lovely people who run this site I know too well what a time consuming job it can be. I'm relatively new to this site but have found so much valuable information. I'm loving the new site, change always takes a while, best is to take a little while and just browse around just like we all do when we first discover a new forum.

    I think the change will be nice once everyone understands it. I am having a few issues, but I think they are just bugs or glitches that have to be fixed.

    Change is always hard. I'm enjoying hovering over a post great, then I can decide if I want to read it or if I have already read it. It
    saves a lot of time. I think everyone just have to give it some time and practice. I agree that the print is a little small.

    The print is REALLY small. What are the odds that management will hear the people and respond by increasing the font size?
    Go forth and sew!

    I could become better adjusted to the new format if I could SEE it.
    I too give my heartfelt thanks to the Board for all their efforts for so long and for so many. Although I didn't think the old format needed much help, they went to some great effort to create this new one. However, the avatar pics and the print are WAY too small. That's not something I can 'adjust' to very well.

    Oh goodie, I just noticed that I'm a "SUPER MEMBER"...what did I do to deserve that??

    There is definitely a learning curve here, but I'm catching on quite quickly and am enjoying the "new" QB. I would also like to thank those who have volunteered their time and energy to getting our QB up and running so efficiently. It is a place I truly enjoy coming to everyday. Thank you again!!

    Yes, thank you all! I've just started poking around, but so far I love it. I especially love the "hover" feature - where if you put your cursor over a thread title you can read the first several words of the post - saves a lot of time in going into threads that really don't grab my interest when I'm running short on time. Thanks so much!

    Please have patience with us, all of seem to be stuck with liking the old and not wanting to take time to adjust to the new (myself included) but I am sure as time passes and we get use to the new site we will be back to our old selves and appreciate your hard work and effort to make the site better.

    Have a wonderful day and try to stay optimistic about all the posts it just seems like it is very overwhelming to us but we will get use to it eventually.
    Happy Quilting

    It will take time to get use to the changes. Old site was easier to use.

    On tool bar at the top of your browser window there should be a row that says "file, edit, view, favorites...etc" Click on view, follow the drop down to "zoom" and increase to 125% (or larger, if you wish). The 125% should just about fit the page to your screen and the font is very easy to see. Have fun!

    I like the looks of the new site also. The print could be a little larger for those of us with "old eyes". My pics come up nice and large, and I like the way they look.

    I thank all those involved in bringing this message board to life. I am looking around and getting used to this. I am liking what I see, and posts get posted quicker then having a lag. Thank you Moderators

    I am having the opposite problem...at 100% the print is fine but the QB is so large I have to scroll side to side to read the entire posting. If I go to 75% then some words are scrambled up. Anyone know why I am having this problem? Thanks in advance!

    Also, not that it matters but my feedback score doesn't show up...just wondering????

    Yes, i have to agree. The desingers and brains behind updates have a hard job. Keeping the site secure and updating to more modern things...but dog gone it...I hate new things sometimes. If I had it my way, I'd still be using windows 95. But, I'm sure that eventually I'll get the hang of the new way and learn to love all the hard work that you guys have put into it.

    I really like that I can put the mouse over the topic and read the first couple lines to see if I actually want to read the post. That's nice.

    I'm sorry that people are wanting to leave the board over the change. I guess I just feel differently. I had to learn to cut , piece, applique, quilt, bind and label. I've had to learn how to use different sewing machines. We all learn how to do different things EVERYDAY. This is no different. It will take some time to get used to it, that's all. Please give these changes a chance.
