Hello Guernsey Donkey2,
Most newspapers / magazines / websites have periodic design refreshes. It's amazing how quickly things can date. Digital technology changes very rapidly and websites that were very 'up to the minute' a few years back can seem very old-fashioned now.
Any business / brand that undertakes design changes doesn't do so lightly - an established brand with a loyal user base has a lot at stake. We're in the process of refreshing gardenersworld.com - a great deal of thought and care has gone into that, but unfortunately we've haven't got the forum part of that process quite right.
We'll fix it for you as quickly as we possibly can. The next stage of that will be released to the site over the next week. We'll be monitoring your feeback very closely and we'll take note of everything that everybody says. Unlike magazines and newspapers there isn't a finished product with websites, which are constantly evolving and changing.
We're very lucky in having a really knowledgeable and diverse membership - it might not seem like it at the moment, but we are doing our best to deliver the best forum for everyone that we possibly can.
More changes on the way!
