So far, I like it. I have to re-learn a bunch of stuff, but that's no big deal.

In the old form there was an area where you could check for information by it's topic. What happened to that box or how do you look up things by topic now?

:) and learning I am
Overall from what I have seen, learned and discovered I love all the updates. It created a few minor glitches on my end which took me a little bit to figure out and I had to do some house cleaning in my user CP(something I guess all members should do from time to time). Nothing wrong with a little Spring cleaning :p

My profile pic was lost (maybe a godsend to some-LOL)
I was swamped with thread notifications that I never got before. This led me to discover apparently I was subsrcibed to nearly every post I had participated in since becoming a member.................dunno why that showed up after the makeover and not before but I believe I have "unsubscribed" now and the notifications should be resolved. Actually it was kind of fun to look over some of my earlier posts............................it just made me realize the value of this site and what I have learned here in several years.

I love the ease of posting single images now and I think the photo album is new and also was a good idea and a needed addition. For some reason it doesn't seem to be getting the use I would have thought it would, but in the end I think it has its place and will free up space and time spent reading thru the threads of a more serious note. Kind of like a "random" for the picture buffs.

I also like the larger and bolder fonts.

I can think of only a few minor glitches which am still experiancing which could very well be on my end and maybe I can track down in my firewall or browser settings- they are as follows if anyone has any suggestions.

1. When I first log on thru my bookmark in favorites the page will not always open and I need to hit refresh before the page displays.

2. When page does initially display I get exclamation mark on taskbar saying "loaded with errors on page". Once I proceed from there this message goes away.

3. Smileys do not always work. Click on them to put in post and nothing happens.

So there you have it, my favorite changes I have discovered to date and the problems I have encountered to date. In my eyes a great site only got better.

As always my hat is off to Mike with much admiration and respect to him and all those involved (y)
