Hello Leadfarmer,

Thanks for the feedback. We're intending to address the problem of the excessive scrolling with the next site build - hopefully the middle of next week.

We're also be making further design changes that we hope will improve the experience for everyone. As ever, please leave your feedback on this forum and let us know if there's anything we're not getting right.

Hello Hazel,

I think this is one of the things that the tech team is looking at over the next week. Apologies in the meantime for the inconvenience...

I'm partial to a bit of ZZ Top myself, but really there's no contest!

Don't worry about me, Plant Pauper - I've got the new Beyoncé album on repeat play, so I can take anything that comes my way!

fidgetbones - I very much hope that won't happen. I gather that our tech team is working towards releasing the next set of updates about midweek. We're all catching up first thing Monday morning to review those changes. We won't have a completely perfect, finished forum by then, but I can tell you that we'll make all the changes we possibly can in such a short timeframe. It's the next step in a process, so there will be further improvements to follow...

pansyface - everything you've posted over the last few days has been duly noted and reported to our design and technical teams. Please rest assured we're doing everything we can to deliver a forum that you'll find much easier to use. The first set of changes will go live over the coming week. If people aren't happy with those changes we'll note all of the feedback and persist until we have a forum that people are happy with. We can't promise to please everybody all of the time, but we can at least promise to try!
