Could I just say for the benefit of those who are troubled by the size of text and don't already know, you can change text size to suit your needs by holding down your control key and rotating the mouse wheel.

Hi, GD

Trust me 5 years is a life time in technology....and to be honest, even I could see that some aspects needed updating.

I bank online with one of the major banks and they too have changed their website to accommodate portable devices and it looks very much like this format....it doesn't really please me and me old desktop, but I'm getting used to it.

Hi, Daniel

With respect, my reason for starting this thread wasn't to lure anyone away from this forum, just to make known an alternative. For what it's worth I (and many others) are here as a result of an invitation posted by you on the old BBC forum.....we haven't moved the goalposts.

As I have said previously, this forum is unique and would be difficult to relocate elsewhere.

Good luck with addressing the present problems.

When I suggested a new forum, I had in mind something like this: http://www.garden-friends.co.uk/

Not difficult to set up, but needs commitment to administer.

Would anyone be interested in starting a new forum?

Can't agree with that, Darren.....no axe to grind here, but...... 'Allotments 4 All' is particularly strong and progressive. Haven't visited 'Garden World Discussions' for some time.

At least the format on both is less testing on the eyes.

Steve / David K............which forums do you recommend ?  I use a lap top only and this format has become far too clumsy and time consuming for me.  

See original post

 http://www.allotments4all.co.uk/ and http://gardenworld.proboards.com/

Both excellent sites.

Time for a mass exodus?

There are several excellent gardening forums (a couple offshoots from the BBC) that are friendly and don't have silly formats.

As many know, I'm fairly computer savvy and have helped others many times in that regard, but oh dear, this is definitely not a user friendly change.
