O.K. VBB so, the website is a little confusing I agree. I'm a little lost myself. I did log on to the brownie points section,and you get points for logging in,post to the forum,and starting a new forum. I don't think the other points like swapped recipes apply,infact,I don't think we have swapped recipes anymore. If so,I haven't find them. The site looks good and maybe we should give them a chance to get the bugs out. If it dosen't work,maybe they will go back to the old format.

I agree with only 1 thing-the old site needed help, buuuuutttttt, this is a big mess!!!!!  Why was this necessary?  I liked to be able to read the baking memories and the new recipes (even the old swapped recipes), now I can't even figure out how to navigate this mess.  I think I may be done!

We're sorry for the trouble our technical glitches are causing you and other VBBers!  We're working hard to get everything fixed ASAP.

Baking Memories are still here and can be found in the "Shared Stories" section of the Community.

Swapped Recipes are coming back soon and will be even easier to share!

We really appreciate the time you've spent exploring VBB in the past and hope you'll give us a chance to address all the issues you and other VBBers are sharing!

Delia-

We had to delete your posts due to inappropriate language.

Your concerns about the site are important to us. We are working to get everyone's Brownie Points restored as quickly as we can.

What would you like to see as part of the site?

Have you tried to edit in here? It gives you the option of saving or canceling your post. Save it and whatever you added/substracted from the original disappears and only your original post is still there. Cancel it and all is gone! Also, when I tried to go to another topic, it loged me out! You don't know if anyone is on line on the forums. You don't know who is posting since our user names are gone along with our avatars. What a mess. I don't want my name displayed for millions to see. It is none of their business. But, I can't find a single spot to change it. Administrators, why were we lied to about the format staying the same? About our user names and avatars still being there? Private messaging still being available? You may have made the main site better but, the message boards are a joke. Give us back our original format, user names, avatars, private messaging, etc. And don't lie to us about what we are getting.

We apologize for the headaches our technical glitches are causing you and our other VBBers...we're working hard to fix them all!

Editing/logging out/avatars/private messaging are all not working as they should and we are sorry for the trouble this is causing you.  We appreciate the time you've spent on VBB and hope we can earn your patience through this transition!

So many people DON'T like this new so called update.
First of all ADMIN... couldn't you have just done a few updates at a time ?
I agree.... why mess with it if it isn't broken.

All of that valuable information in the messages boards LOST. All the great recipes we shared...LOST.
All the friedships...LOST.All the experiences we all shared...LOST. Everything... LOST.
Thank goodness some of us hooked up on FB, otherwise we would never be able to visit with each other again.
Luckily we made friendships along the way & those people will be in our hearts forever...but what about the people we were just starting to make friends with. They are new & now lost beacuse they can't find many of us.
BTW... Admin... you did tell us that changes were going to be made, thank goodness for that..
You also told us we would keep our profile nicknames & avatars. I'm guessing here, but all of our posting points are gone as well. 
You told us to save or copy info. on the boards, cause once the changes were made they were lost forever. Do you people have any idea how much GREAT info. was in the message boards ? We would of needed a LOT more time to save all that valuable info. then you gave us. We shouldn't of had to do that. That just isn't right. 
Why would you change everything without knowing what all of us like. You know.... we the "CUSTOMERS" of Nestle.
Obviously that doesn't mean anything to you.
Very sad... very, very sad.
I know I'll be changing my homepage.

Pam:

First of all, we are very sorry for the disappointment this is causing you.  Our site isn't working quite right (as you've all noticed!) and it is causing a lot of headache to our VBBers.  We'd like to keep VBB as a place for you and all our loyal VBBers to share laughs, stories and friendships. 

Second of all, because of our site "not working quite right" your avatars aren't showing up as they should be and Brownie Points are missing.  We will get this fixed.  Swapped Recipes are coming back soon and we will show you exactly where to find them. 

We appreciate the time you've spent on our site in the past and hope we can earn your time on the new site as well.  Please keep your thoughts and feedback coming as we work to address all your concerns.

I agree there was ONE word that was not appropriate. BUT for you to not allow us to use the word "SCRU" is going too far. It surely was not being used in a profane manner. 99.9 percent of the time we police our selves and the language we use. We care very much for this web site and have asked others not to use competitors name brand products, or foul language. Like I said I used it to prove a point. my point was made and I have no problem with you deleting it.   
Just hurry up and bring our screen names back you "messed " up royally when you forgot to put them back with our avatars.

Tiadia, they messed up more than that. I have been logged out so many times tonight that I was ready to scream. And that was just for hitting my back arrow. You hit it to go back to another post and ZAP, you are gone.

Admin. you are not listening to the clients!!!!  You are giving robotic answers to our questions and concerns. Nearly everyone of them gives reassurance that brownie points will be re-instated and then asks us to tell you what we are having trouble finding. I could care less about brownie points. I didn't try to earn them since they meant -0- to me. I want to be able to find things without having to start from scratch with every key stroke. You hit the back arrow and you get logged out or you go to the page I assume is the home page (there isn't a tab for home page). I tried searching for a dip recipe. I liked one on the 2nd page and after about the 4th page, I tried to go back to it using the back arrow.
HAH! One back stroke and I was logged out and again on the assumed home page. I had to start all over again to get back to the page I needed.

As for what you can help us find...our friends, our exchanged recipes (that were on the message boards), our advice and tips, wishes and prayers. Also, put our standings back in order. I didn't first post in 2008, it was 2005! Nestle's really screwed up if they ok'd these message boards. They should have asked for input and votes from the users. Put the old message boards back up but clean them up first so really old posts are gone. That is what you can help us find. The old message boards with triumphs, failures, heartbreaks and happiness scattered thru out it along with great recipes and baking advice. Or at least reformat this farce of a  message board to mimic the old ones. They were easy to navigate, easy to read, showed when new messages had been added since our last visit, had private messaging, showed who was on the boards and gave us a sense of belonging.

Pam is right in saying that so much was lost. I don't care how hard you try to "fix" the problems on this, it will never be a site that most of us will feel comfortable trying to use. Too much personal info is available to anyone who wishes to try to use it. I have tried to change my name on my account and update it but it will not work either. I simply do not care to even try to messing with it. There is going to be a lot of people who will not be back. And, people who do not read about Nestle's products, are people who will not buy them.

I don't like it because I can't get to my recipe box, it doesn't remember my log in and I loved the old one.  Why change when there was nothing wrong with the old one.  Just a couple weeks ago they asked if I'd do a survey on their site.  i did and told them how much I liked it, how easy it was to navigate and how I loved my recipe box.  I guess they didn't listen,
