Agree! I don't want to be negative... and I really thought it mightbe somehow "better," but it's NOT! I wonder how often the designers of this actually used & relied on the old boards?? Many of us were on here DAILY... they could have started with a tweak, but a total overhaul sucks big time >:(
I'm also very disappointed. I agree that the boards are no longer user-friendly. I think that there are way too many options. I'm too distracted by all the things. Sometimes simple is better and I think in this situation that would be the case. I hope we all can hang in there, because I certainly do not want to lose anyone. I'm afraid though that we may not have any newbies anymore. First of all, I think they would have trouble even finding the board and then I think they may feel it is too overwhelming. I wish we could go back.
It is terrible. None of the other boards like it. I get it that people dont like change and it takes time but this is just crap. The other way was easier on the eyes, simple to find what you needed. I hope they are reading all of these complaints and will go back to the old way.
I AGREE ALSO. i was on the endo board which they did not feel was important enough to carry over(but we made our own) these boards are confusing. way too busy and not user friendly at all anymore. they are hard to keep track of and read and i do believe they will discourage new people from trying to figure it out and get us oldies so frustrated we won't come on anymore.
i agree! i need this board. i feel lost without it. seriously, i don't think the web designers even needed this board! and the annomous thing is STUPID with a capital F...yes, i am that mad! i left another board because there was an annomous button and i was abused and other women were abused just because of an ignorant person on WHY women suffer loses. i do hope and pray that no one on here, or anywhere, has to read what was posted on my posts.
really, WebMD, you need to change back because I need you too much. I need these ladies too much. This is my only support, true support, not just "oh i know how you feel, because i lost my iguana!, it was about 5 inches long"...
GO BACK TO THE OLD WAY!...and it's not because i don't like change, change is good, as long as it truly benefits everyone...THIS DOES NOT!
Shana, I'm so sorry that someone somewhere was upsetting to you...If that EVER happened to anyone on here, I'd go ape-sh t on them. I'm in limbo and don't know what to do. No counselor in the world could have helped me like you all have. I'm sad. :sad: that they did this to us. I feel like i've been violated. :angry:
