    ive only come across a couple minor things that i think are less that desirable but it does have a few new features that are quite nice.

    Obviously it is right to choose to hate it and leave.

    It might be helpful if Joe knows what the issues are, they might be fixable things...........

    Wow! Sorry guys but this style is the future of blogs! I really don't think that it's all that difficult to navigate.

    If I'm not mistaken, Joe mentioned that the software for the old forum was no longer supported. Software companies drive you forward, like it or not. I agree, it's not always fun to change, but in the end, you rarely have a choice. I do like the new format, but it's the same format used on a couple of other forums I'm on, so for me, it's not a huge learning curve.

    It is fine with me, well advertised in advance so everyone knew or should have known it was coming. I think it navigates very similar to the old. just a "cleaner" face.

    I'm not the most computer literate person and I'm starting to get around the new site. Sorry to see anyone leave but if you are going to make an omelette you gotta break a few eggs.

    Why don't you lock your own ads and delete your account yourself? It's not right leaving your work for others to do...

    Not sure why people don't like it?? I don't see it as that much different, few feature operate differently but really no big deal.

    The main thing is, most people do not like change. Even though "change" can be good. Whenever a new operating system, new phone, a new anything for that matter comes out. It is hard to learn at first. But in the end there should be some good (new) features and it might be worth learning.

    Its just like rearranging your living room, it feels different at first, you eventually get used to it, then it feels just like home after a while.
