Okay is it just my PC or everyone's? I have this new format that is far less user friendly then the old one!!!!!!! I just dont care for it like the other format and hope I get used to it, because I can tell that it will be far less frequented then the old one just because it is so less user friendly... What does everyone else think of it? Bambam

I absolutely love the new forum. There are a lot more "quick links" and if I sign onto the board and do not have time to read all of the posts, I can sign off and sign in later and still see the unread threads. The old board pretty much marked them all read after signing off. I like the new one much better.

David - Chicago is my town. If you have time for a cup of coffee or lunch, let me know. I have an office in the financial district (LaSalle Street) and will be there Tuesday - Thursday. It's a great city. Hope we have good weather for you. - Deerfield

I'm starting to get used to this new format, and for the most part like it. However, I really dislike the thread marker system. I liked that the old system cleared the "unread" markers every time you left the site. Now I have to check way too many threads because they are almost ALL marked as "new posts" even though I've already read them. It's annoying. And what's a "Hot Topic" anyway?

I had the same problem. I had to "Mark all threads read" in the Forum Tools the first time I signed in on every one of the groupings, I have not had that problem since. Now I just see the new posts. As you finish reading a group, click the mark all threads read dropdown and go to the next group. Kind of a pain but you only have to do it once and then it will act like the old board.

I'm sure I'll get used to it, but I don't seem to be getting the follow up emails letting me know when people are adding to threads that I added to. I know it's easy to add pics now but I can't figure out how to change the size. I'm still 50/50 on it

I guess like anything I will grow used to it, I just think I like the old one better. I am familiar with this particular style and the one thing I really liked about the old one is it seemed really quick and easy as compared to this style. Oh well the people are all the same and thats what counts!

How can I post the pic large like we could with photobucket. The ones I just did are way to small!

I can not get my avitar to work. I tried uploading a picture from my picture album. It is not working. What am I doing wrong. By the way, I like the new format.

I'm frustrated by the 'search' function. It was very versatile previously, sometimes giving too many hits...but now there is that irritating 'type in the letters that are impossible to see' requirement...and then I get no hits on my search...anyone else have this problem?

What time zone are these postings in? Why have a time stamp if it bears no relation to the actual time.
