I see what you mean about the pics Daisy....although it looks rather artsy fartsy, it is not showing my entire picture...all the crap down the side I guess..cuts into the bandwidth I guess.

Cannot upload any photos directly from my computer, nor can I figure out how to use an external to get my avatar.

Photos that were previously posted are now cut in half...or perhaps that's just on my screen? (See Marsher's dragonfly photo) Please let me know if that's just how I'm seeing it on my screen?

Oooohh look at the wide range of pretty font colours! Nice!

Test photo. On my screen the moth is bumping into the edge of the photo. The original is via the link below.

Lots of colours!! and easier to use too!

In the thread itself it shows up half, but in the post reply page it is full...but the fonts are tiny. I don't mind it set up in the review format in the post reply...easier to see and follow.

Oh...and I can't seem to get my signature attached that was there before...I guess I have to start from scratch with that one. Too bad more info was not transferred over

Hi Carol...the picture is not the same as your link...but I already told somebody that and they are working on fixing the problems. When I X out of your link it X me out of the whole canadian gardening forum. :shock:

Oooooh...I too like the font colours...funky!!

I know you guys have been working hard on this... but for me this is a downgrade not an upgrade. Anyways here are the things I think could be improved.

The ads and control panel worked best on top and bottom, on the side, it's removing 30% of the text space.

Page is too bright, this will be too tiring for the eyes. There's a reason why most forums have soft backgrounds.

Too much posts on one page when viewing a forum. Single posts within that list also take to much space. Takes to much time to load.

Please don't take this as complaining, I'm an IT exec and I know how these changes can be difficult. But as an IT exec I also know that this is not the kind of colour scheme and layout my team is allowed to use or would use.

Did everybody have to reregister? I see everybody's post #s seem to have been reset?

Yes Eve everyone has to do the same...

I seem to have log in each visit... it will not log me in continously :?: :?: .

It does not seem like new posts are moving to the top of the page. I posted to my Dragon fly post and it did not move. :roll:

There is an instruction on the main forum page saying that you have to sign up again... but it is easy to miss.

Gosh I wish I could edit my posts....

posts seem to be ordered by original creation time and date,as opposed to last post to it.
