I'm in dead rack!
For the record... switching to "Shades of Grey" made it at LEAST 85% better! I think the rest we'll just have to get used to.
Thanks, I appreciate the explanation.It is partially a mental thing, fighting change even if we don't mean to. I was a CAD operator years ago. Ran AutoCAD 2.x to 13. I went to work at a nuke where a lot of the drawings were kept up in Integraph. Back then Integraph and AutoCAD deliberately didn't work and play well together and DXF files were a mess. I hated Integraph! Danged software was slow and cumbersome and I often had to do three steps when I could do the same thing with one step in AutoCAD. For weeks, maybe a couple months, I fought the software. More in my head than on the tablet. Then one fine day I said to myself, Integraph isn't AutoCAD, you still have to use it. Accept it for what it is. Quit getting annoyed when I knew AutoCAD did something better, it wasn't AutoCAD.
When I quit fighting myself I found that Integraph wasn't that big of a deal. Didn't really matter, I could go job hunting when I had a damned good one or I could learn Integraph. Once I saw it as learn Integraph or hit the bricks it became much easier! If we accept this new software as what is gonna be instead of moaning about what was it will become much easier to learn.
Now, about my two billion points and 2700 or so in V-Cash . . . Not really! Both of those and two bucks for a cheap cup of coffee these days.
That was a nice effect of making the move. All of AzB was without real mobile pages for way too long.It's FAR easier to use on a phone than the old site, at the very least. I would rarely check in on my phone on the old site, now its easy. (I'm not sure that's a good thing, in my case, lol...)
I enjoyed the old site and its look/feel, but I understand the need to change it. It also helps that I use another forum (drummerworld.com) that uses this same software, so its not completely unfamiliar to me. Hang in there, folks.
I appreciate the notes as to changes that bother you. It is so much better than just "Ugh, change bad!!!".You used to be able to see at a glance forum members post counts. Now you don't know if someone has 1 or 10,000 posts
I liked all the forum members at the bottom of the forums page. It was like WOW, a lot of people are on here.
I liked that VTrader was easy to see.
Home page had tons of info and was well presented. The current home page looks empty.
