Will the boards look the same as they did before or do we need to get used to the new look?

This is the information I received a little while ago:

"Here's what's going on:

The forums have been moved to a different VB version. Some of the features such as chat and blogs and a few others I might not be thinking of require a compatible plugin to work as it did prior.

Our tech team is working on regaining as much of the previous functionality as possible, however, due to limited resources, it will be an ongoing process over the next few months."

I have already let them know that the new (and I think temporary) appearance is justifiably unpopular.

Ouch... fairly unreadable is true. I was headed on to post an update to my albums - but yeah, those aren't working either just yet. Growing pains, hopefully!

I find this hard to read. The type is small, I don't always get the pictures, and I miss the main page with all the FORUMS on it. To top it off, I just had a pm from another member which has disappeared with this new look. The only way I can read it now is to read the copy that came in my email. Sorry to say there's nothing about this new look that I like, and I don't think it's just because it is changed and none of us like change. I think it's because it's all bad.

I also find the small print difficult to read. I do not see anything on the site to change the size so I guess I will have to increase the magnification on my device.
The other thing I noticed is that the discussions from the last few days have "disappeared"? I received a private message this morning from a member but it also has gone into cyberspace. In addition to this the site says that I hadn't posted since November when my last few posts were actually last night. Hopefully things will be better in the New Year.

You can increase the size of the font by holding down the CTRL button (Command on a Mac) and typing "+" (the plus symbol) until you get the size you want.

When I click on my email from quilting boarrd, the only thing I get is "page not found". Not complaining, just wanted you to know. Happy New Year.
