Is it just me?

Postby jumbo » Fri Jun 26, 2015 11:23 am

I am finding the new theme of this site to be not friendly as the old one (not easy on the eye as well). Its been a while, but I am still not used to this new blue theme they adopted.
Is it just me or is someone else experiencing the same thing as me?

You're not alone. It doesn't flow as well, font is small and features are missing still. Not sure if it will ever change since they did a complete overall to whatever this system is.

I see more ads than posts so far on mobile; basically 4 credit card offers, the two posts in between that and finish off with four same credit card offers below.

Also when I'm on top the links to navigate isn't easy, home is always to the main blog/site page rather than home of the forums where it's broken into three sections where top two is into four subs and than this one for others?

And the link behind that home link will be one for the subsections

But nothing to go back where you can see all the diff ones

Not sure how to explain but it's not too big a deal since I just go to tool bar to re type for the main forum page if anything

But def not user friendly compared to the older model that's for sure

I'm a bit bothered by the constantly disappearing and reappearing "go to last post" links.

I guess I've felt the same way. I liked the simplicity of the old site, or I was used to it. It's kind of a facelift more than anything.

At least here we can say what we think. On a certain other site you wouldn't dare to say anything less than totally flattering about it, and you'd best throw in some Congrats +1 and gush about gardening too if you don't want to be banned for all eternity.

Of course if you just don't care then by all means talk about selectively freezing reports, manufactured spend, and the like :)

I'm not a fan of the new site either. Maybe it's just me, but, I feel like usage has gone down since the redesign.

I agree with this one.
I was disliking it as a visual aspect, but people seem to have problem navigating and ads as well... Hmm..!
I don't visit this site from my mobile though.
