Hey, this is a free service and I'm happy to have it and I really enjoy it...but please tell us this was a beta version that was supposed to be discarded.

The old forum took forever to load. This seems to load a lot faster. The big indent on the left margin takes a lot or real estate, though...
can't even log inBlahhhh

Castrate the webmaster who didn't test this on a staging server.
UI sucks too...

This may be your chance to reclaim your old name. Drop the "y".

I couldn't register "grz mnky" since it's already taken, but now I can post under that name as a guest. So it looks like it easy to borrow names and throw up some nasty postings.

Gotta love the concept of continuous improvment.... What about "If it ain't broke, don't fix it?"

Maybe it is faster for you. It takes 3 times as long to load for me.

Well, people generally don't take to change well, so it's a bit early to be drawing any conclusions. It does seem to be quite a lot faster than the old version. I do not like the apparent loss of my profile information though.

Part of my profile is back, but not all of it. The links to my home page and to my bike pages are gone now. The screen font is TOO SMALL. I run my display at 1280x1024 and I can't read anything without getting up close and personal with my monitor. Speed seems improved, but usability has decreased.

Net result: site is less pleasant to use.

I was here this morning and everything was fine. I check back this afternoon and . . . . Why the change? I feel that this board generally works pretty well, why mess with it. Change for no other sake than change in and of it's self is useless. Change is bad. I fear change. It seems harder to read and, well, just not right. Also it is running much sloooooooower for me. Gripe, complain, moan, rant, cuss so on and so forth.

Notice how everytime you log in, somethings different? I saw that the old "return to message board" link is back on the bottom of the threads. Dejavou! Perhaps the old board is trying to break through the new format. Perhaps I watch too much Tuesday night WB.

So Gregg, do they force you guys to perform live production upgrades during your lunchbreak instead of at 11pm like any respectable network administrator? This is so funny to watch. Then again, you probably don't get in trouble for having down time. (Now where'd I put that resume?)

I think I like it!Live Steam

It needs a little tweeking such as eliminating the hyperlinks in the "Message" area below the title box so it will let you go to the text box by hitting the tab button once while typing. But I like the format. It is sophisticated looking and it definitely loads faster.
How do I get to the "Review by Manufacturer" Section?DoctorNurse

That was sooooo convenient back in the old days...Where is the link? Am I just missing it? Blind? Numbed by work? Help!!
