Accepting New Challenges! You can do it!
Posted: Mar 30, 2006 4:34 PM

I posted this in another thread, but was asked to post it on it's own.


Life is full of changes, some of which are good, some of which are bad. If you start a new job and it's different from your last, do you quit after the first day just because it's different? No, you keep plugging away, and soon your new job is as familiar as your old one.

If you get in an argument with your FH do you just quit your relationship because you hit a bump in the road? No, you work it out.

It's a lot like message boards. Sure it's a new format, sure there are a lot of people who feel that the change is bad, but can't change be good?

There are three times the brides now, that's three times the ideas. We have the ability to have albums now, that's a good thing! Sure the forums are different, but won't it be easier to find a post about a tuxedo in that forum rather than have to dig through tons of posts about dresses?

Before we all become quitters, let's give the new format a good go at it. There are going to be glitches, sure, but hey, we lost avatars on the last site and seemed to get over that. It's only been a few hours having the site up, let's try giving Admin some constructive feedback, rather than complaining that we just hate it.

I love new challenges not only in real life, but in my cyber life as well.

I don't mind new challenges. I expect I'll get used to some aspects of the new board, but the font is so small and light-colored it is hurting my eyes to try to read anything. THere's something wrong when the new format has the same width for ads as they do for posting space, plus a useless border on the sides... here's to hoping the admins notice this in the days to come, I don't want to go blind trying to read a forum.

Jamie,

At the top of the forum (where all the messages under a topic is listed) page is a place where you can click and give feedback to admin. It's a simple form, and your complaint is something that could be addressed.
Just be sure to fill out that form so they know about it!!!

AMEN SISTER!!! You have to try something before you quit. A few hours doesn't count.

I will say it one last time to all who are thinking about leaving. Please wait it out. It will get better.

I don't like the new format, either, but I'm not giving up on the boards after less than ONE DAY. One day? Actually, a few hours? I'm willing to give it a chance.

I agree completely! I am not used to the new format either but I am willing to give it a shot. There are quite a few plusses about the new site. I'm excited to learn new things. Like, I'm going to become a pro at HTML!


I say don't fret it! Enjoy the good things about it. We are all here to plan weddings and that has not changed.

I second that! It is not so bad the more you play around with it and they are trying to make it more user friendly. Happy planning everyone!
