I have been on the boards since May 2004 so, almost 6 years now and while I can't imagine not coming here this change is just so different. I don't know if I'll be around much anymore either. Why did they have to go and mess with a perfectly good thing? Why aren't these message boards anymore? Who's idea was all of this?!?
I agree. This "message board" isn't even about the posts anymore. It's NOT user friendly at ALL. Please chanfe it back before we all leave. We could care less about the crap on the sides. The reason I cam to this board in the first place is because, unlike others, it was easy to use and all about the posts. Not anymore. Please PLEASE reconsider this terrible terrible idea.
I am also thinking I will not be back either. I do not like this new format at all. It's sad to because I used the boards alot since I have 3 kids(11,3&5 mths) plus I'm preggers again, so I had just started using the pregnancy boards again. I guess it's to Nick parents connections or baby center for me. Good luck to all.
Busy page and the grey print is a bit difficult to read. I think change is tough so it will take some getting used to. I do find it hard to see though. I guess I will play around and see what it is all about. The print being a bit darker might help or back to the blue type print...
I don't like it either. I have been here since TTC, so well over 6yrs(not the same username though), I have seen alot of changes and this by far is the worst. I liked where you could see all the latest post and this junk on the side is just to much. I agree it way to busy. I am not sure if I will be here much longer either. Thanks webmd for messing this all up.
YUCK!!! I've also been on here for over 3 years (since I thought I might be pregnant with DD1), but I think I'm gone now. Good luck to all of you! I wish you the best. Thanks for all the help and advice you've given me through pregnancy, infancy, and toddlerhood!
