KT - There have been a great many posts expressing intense anger and rage and intentions to huff off to other forums or start a new one. There have also been some strongly expressed pleas to change the visual presentation - font, back ground, size of blocks of post, blank spaces etc.
On the other hand, there are plenty of posts using moderate language to express disappointment, ask for the restoration of much used features such as first unread post, changes to format and colours as well as a willingness to wait and see how the techies get on with the fixes so that we can retain the great sense of community on here.
It is encouraging to see that Daniel is engaged and following up on our comments, requests and fault reporting and that he and Nora are trying to round them all up and assess for urgency, essential or "would be nice". Daniel has also had the grace to recognise that the whole process has been badly managed and they will learn from this experience.
I have no technical issues to report - I use a laptop, don't use smilies or quotes, don't often post a picture, don't want email notifications etc - so for me it's all about the lack of threads visible at one time and learning to navigate again on what was formerly an easy site to use. I did have a problem changing my status to include a new email address and Daniel was very helpful.
I can see that a Like or Useful button would be good but which its is wouldn't make any difference to most of us. It's the prima donnas and the trolls who will misuse, take offence, get competitive and they'll do that with or without such buttons.
Good luck to Daniel and Nora and the techies for getting it all sorted out. I hope you succeed.
