You were always able to jump to the latest post, now you have to keep backing up to find out where you left off yesterday.


i think this is my last post, someone has opened yet another thread about the new look, that's, what seven now! 


Hows Nora supposed to look through all that lot .  She has specifically asked that everyone just post on the same one that she opened, but no, here's another this morning. Can't be doing with this.


too many amateur hosts on here now for my liking.


i have found another very good gardening site that moves very quickly, so very vibrant, and I already belong to another one anyway. Twos plenty to keep up with.

And yet another thread opened about the new site!


how many is that, seven?


For goodness sake, of course it's all there, and the reason no one likes it is because it's all spread out and you cant see at a glance the days entries.


i am sure there are several people can make a website, anyone can, it's not rocket science.


Dove  is well aware of how to work the site, she's closer  to it than any of us. 


And as said on every other thread on this...there is not an edit button.


JT53, you're fighting a losing battle here! 

Advise me another website PLEASE

Everything is  being duplicated because a few are playing junior host and opening new threads.


Nora has a thread open for comments, so has everyone else now.


is it because they can't see the original threads, you can, they are all there.

I won't be on here anymore, I can't even see what I'm typing in the post box and the thumb and finger doesn't open it up. I liked to be able to just come in make a coffee, quick look on the front page sometimes a quick post.


Too much scrolling, I have found another site just this week, I am sure we can make new friends.


i have seen this happen on another site, we used to belong to an online church, some bright young thing came in and stated it needed changes. 


No one could get on with it, far too complicated, so as so many people dropped out, he said he was going to take it to FaceBook, he did and it folded completely within a year or so.

I think there are two things going on here, with the posters that is.


some can't find this or that, it's there, just difficult to find, so Nora can't be blamed for that. Just click on the green tick and you won't get mail notifications. If you wantl to message someone, just click message under their name.


the quote thing is much easier, just click quote and it appears in the post box.


but agree the whole thing, as an overal site, is awful. I agree with Philippa, just to pop in and see everything at a glance is much better.


Nora has set up a thread donated to this, I think we should post there as she will have a better chance of replying to us all.

Still can't post a pic on a new thread. I hope the ' improvements' doesn't kill this forum. It would appear none of the users were consulted before the changes were made. I'll drop back in a couple of days to see if it's improved, at the moment it's way too messy. 


See original post

 Someone did ask a while back what changes we wanted to see, most of us agreed it was good as it was, just needed a bit of tweaking, like a camera icon and not so fiddly quoting, now look what we've got. Most of us don't even want to use the site now. 


But won't matter to them though because as newbies join, they will know no different, and us oldies can go elsewhere.
