We are listening!  Thank you for starting a thread to collect everyone's thoughts.  A lot of our VBBers concerns about the new site are about it not working correctly and we should have this aspect fixed soon.  Thank you for your patience.

We are working on a guide to help you and our other loyal VBBers.  In the meantime, the Site Map at the bottom on the page is a good place to start.  What are you looking for?

It's not too bad...still working my way around it....had the old one in my favorites and brought me right to my page but this one I have to sign in everytime I go on to it.   Guess time will tell if it's a good set up or not.

I'm a dedicated "sweeper". I lucked up and found this site a couple of years ago. I visit on a daily basis, but I have say that once I become aggravated with something I just give up. I'm not happy about the amount of points that I'm losing every day that this site doesn't work, nor the changes to how we earn them. Remember the old saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"? I have found that in this day and age, change very rarely works out for the best.

Hi Amy-

Sorry that you're finding the new site frustrating to use. We're listening to everyone's comments and are constantly working to improve the site.

Your Brownie Points should be back soon. Once you log in, your old points will appear in your account in less than a day.

Thanks for being a Very Best Baker!

I'm not about to retype all of my previous reply.  Twice I've spent the time to type up my thoughts and twice when I've clicked to post, I've gotten an error and my comments have apparently been lost.  If this doesn't improve I won't be doing any commenting on this site!

I am verry un-pleased with the new web site.  I came on today because I needed a tip, only to not be able to find out how to look one up. I did, how ever find a way to voice my dissatifaction.  Could you PLEASE put things back the way they were?

I too am having problems finding what I'm looking for. In my recipe box it takes way too long to find a recipe. They don't seem to be in any order and waiting for each page to refresh is frustrating. Also, clicked on a link to a recipe and says oops, page is empty? Hello--it's your website, where is the recipe? Not happy at all.

We apologize for all the confusion and frustration the site transition is causing you and all of our VBBers; we're actually losing our replies to you as well!  We are working hard to fix this so that the forum is much more user-friendly!

I rather like the new website! I think the layout is very pretty (particularly the themed backgrounds, with leaves and Halloween designs). I actually am having a much easier time finding recipes and going through my Recipe Box than I was on the other website. I can go through individual categories to find exactly what I need. The lack of pictures in my Recipe Box threw me off at first, but it's actually really cool. I discovered recipes I had forgotten that I saved because I would only ever look at the pictures to find something before, and not the actual description. Haha.

As with any new site, it will take some time to get all the kinks worked out that occurred during transfer and for old users to get used to finding things. Ultimately, though, I think the new site is an improvement. =)

Thank you for the kind words.  We realize not all of our VBBers have had the same experience you've had and we're working hard to make sure EVERYONE enjoys the new site!
