I am with you 1000%. Once you get into a discussion, you can't get out of the #$%^ thing!

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.

Cam has it right!  I loved this sight because it was easy to navigate and post and I had a lot of friends here.  Now my posts disapear.  My friends have new names and are unreconizable.  I DON'T LIKE MY NAME BEING POSTED!  I don't like facebooke but it's better than this.  Guess I'll go back to being a hermit.

Hi Cam K-

Thanks for sharing your opinion with us. We're continuing to improve our new site, and your input is very valuable to us as we go forward. We are working to restore the avatars and other information that we said we would bring over.

I'm sorry so many seem to dislike the change.  I like it very much.  I have not found it difficult to navigate.  Mine has proven to be faster than the previous system.
Thanks

Hi Lynette-

We're aware that some people are experiencing issues with their Brownie Points, and we're working to restore them.

You will get at least 100 points per day just by logging in. If you post in the forums, review a recipe or start a new discussion, you'll get more points.

Thanks for being a Very Best Baker!

-Admin

I find this new version of VBB extremely difficult to navigate.  The old one was not all it could/should have been and this new version is definitely not an improvement.

I'm with you, Marilyn V., I can't find Baking Memories either and besides the great recipes, that was my favorite place to visit on VBB. I don't like the new site either because I can't find anything. That is, after I finally manage to get the VBB site up. It took like 20 minutes to come up....it is so slow. Then after finally signing in, being sure to check the "remember me" box, I clicked the "Community" tab and chose this discussion to read. Well, when I tried to reply, I couldn't because VBB had signed me out!! Another long wait while I signed back in, once again checking the "remember me" box.....why did I have to do that again?! Remember me means "remember me!" I did notice my current points from yesterday were listed beside my name at the top of the page, but I apparently did not receive any points for logging in tonight. Where's our points VBB? And where's the Baking Memories page? I know sometimes thing change, but change is not always good! The site had some technical difficulties....you didn't need to revamp the whole site so we VBB'ers can't find anything!

Carol, you tell them! Did the same to me last night and tonight. I have had to resign in already twice tonight. And when I tried to post, both times I got a message "sorry, .......encountered an error". I would like to know who is on the boards when I am so I can say hi or ask the more experienced bakers questions? I can't come on several times a day to check for an answer. I do not have time.

The older site was hosted by Eve. I think this is someone else. Most likely someone with absolutely NO experience on the message boards. You plan to fix something or develope something, you need experience with it or you will only scr*w it up.

Now I get a message about the word "scr*w".  Look at this:
Please edit or remove the following word(s), then resubmit your content: screwdriver (with out the "driver" part that I added so it would print.)

When I posted this, I saw that they had changed the word scr*w to jack.

Hey Wa-Ha!

  Susiesew here!  OMG how I miss the old VBB!  This makes me sad and I miss not seeing you and the others!  I am trying to navigate around here, but it is totally different.  Not what we were told!

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.
