Do they think I am going to continue to re-type each comment over and over again just for it not to show up on the Discussion?! Is this happening to anyone else as often as it is happening to me?
I'll be surprised if this Discussion even starts as usually that doesn't work either most of the time!!!

I just started on this site and found it hard to work my way around the forums.  Kept going back to the same page as well.  We must be doing the same thing.  Guess it is a learning curve.

After I submitted my post it took me to an error page, but once I navigated back to the forum I could see my post.  I think they need to work on this part of the site.  What does everyone else think?

Yes that happens to me too. Sometimes it goes to My VBB before it gets posted in the forums. Hopefully they are working on that too.

I feel the same way.  There are still sooooo many problems which they need to address.  A road map would be great!!!

Ha! Marie, I like that idea....a road map!! T'would be nice, wouldn't it?! I hear what a couple of you are saying, that you get that error page and then go back and look and your post is there. Yes, that happens to me basically all the time. But what I'm saying is also happening is that sometimes my post isn't there even when I go back quite awhile later to look. Then this morning, I went to post again on a Discussion I posted on yesterday and my comment is gone! It was there yesterday after I posted, but now is missing. What's up with that? That's the first I've noticed that happening, but who knows.....I've posted to so many boards so many times...who could keep track unless you write it all down?!?!

Mine usually gets up....sooner or later.....whenever I get that unexpected error occurred thingy.
However, every single time I type a post and then get taken back to the Reply to Post box....then my post is NEVER there. I've checked like even a day or two later and nothing. That's why I could scream....because I take the time to type it and then nothing appears....just goes back to the reply box like I haven't already replied there!!! Frustration!!!

Yes it'a  a pain.
We just need to keep our cool.
Hopefully things will be straightened out soon.
We just have to deal with it.... could be worse...they could take away the message board  for good. Then we would have nothing. Just give it some time.

We don't think you should have to "deal"; we think you should get a site that works great from the beginning.  We know we failed with that but hope we are able to improve the site every week and make it a place you enjoy spending time. Thank you for your patience!

I'm definitely "trying" to be patient, VBB. I do enjoy spending time here, but it's just so frustrating when posts don't post after I take time to type them. I'm sure you can understand that frustration and I'm pretty sure you are doing all you can to get things straightened out. It just seems like it is taking forever! I really want to organize my recipes in my recipe box, but I'm afraid to do so because I'm afraid they will disappear and there already seems to be a lot of them that are missing. Will my recipes be put back there once you get the site going correctly?

It is very very frustrating.  Sometimes I add a post and it tells me an error occurred.  So I post it again and then it is there twice.  Other times, it NEVER shows up.  Other times I post, it gets on there, and the next day it is gone, never to be seen again!!!!!

I think that the majority of the problems should have been worked out before it came on board.  Possibly you (VBB) could have taken some of the people who post on VBB and done a trial with them for several weeks to see how it worked out.

I used to enjoy coming to this site, but it is so frustrating now that I don't spend very much time on it like before!

II am not happy with the "new page".  There was nothing wrong with the old one.  You could find stuff. I can not find shared recipies and the web site is very slow, so I am with you Carol.  Maybe we could all get together and SCREAM!!!!
