Hello Very Best Baking Team and VBBR'S,
I just wanted to tell you,how very much I miss the website you had before. I miss everything it consisited of. Swapped recipes,shared stories,baking tips ect. Actually,everything you had listed for the community,and more.  My old recipe box ,was much easier to navigate and more visually appealing to my eyes, just like the home page was as well. I loved this website,and visited it everyday. It's been almost 5 days since my last visit basically but I miss it,and everything about it. The shared stories we simple,and now there are various forums and such,too much to keep up with. I want you to know, I'm not complaining. Trying to improve something is good,but maybe you weren't aware of how wonderful your website was to begin with. I have talked about this website for years,and now I feel as if I'm losing it,my Very Best Baking friends,and all the things I really enjoy.
Thank you,
Ann Marie Rutkowski, A Very Best Baker at heart

We are sorry to hear how you feel about the new site but glad to hear about your fondness for VeryBestBaking.com; we are working to improve every day (make it easier to read/share stories, bringing back Swapped Recipes, new rewards program) and hope we can win you back!

I haved to agree with AnnMarie.  Maybe it would have been less intrusive to phase in some things gradually instead of changing everything at once?

Just like Barbara - I'm accepting what we have.  Sure, the old site was grand but I'm getting used to this one and enjoying it.

I, too, wish this wasn't so hard to navigate.

Hey! I posted a comment here last night where I agreed with AnnMarie, but it doesn't seem to be here now. Is VBB deleting some of the posts? This is at least the second time this has happened to me. Can't remember all I wrote last night, but yes, I do agree pretty much with you, Ann Marie. VBB has changed too drastically. I, too, miss the old site where I could find things quickly and I enjoyed the Baking Memories especially. I know they are still here under Baking Stories, but somehow they are different. We were like a big family and that seems to have changed quite a bit. I'm hoping things improve soon!

You are so right AnneMarie, the old site I feel was much better layed and easier to find things.  I know that change will take some time to learn and all but geez, to drastic of a change without much thought for links.  It is almost not worth the time anymore to come in here to figure things out.  So sad...www.verybestbaking.com/profile.aspx?UID=b8a89131-6ef1-4db4-90b3-d145421bbf79&plckUserId=b8a89131-6ef1-4db4-90b3-d145421bbf79" target="_parent">

I agree that the old site was much better and easier to navigate.  I'm still feeling my way around and sometimes can't find things and also new posts get deleted, also keep getting that an error has occurred, etc.  New things should have been gradually introduced and as I said:  Directions/road map shoud have been given.  There is still time to do that and help us out.

I miss the old website, too! Points are not accumulating, miss the swapped recipes, miss everything about it! Frown Hopefully someday SOON, they'll get all the kinks worked out.......

We know how annoying this is; our replies to our VBBers disappear sometimes as well!  Our tech team found the source of the disappearing post issue and is fixing it next week.  We apologize that this took longer than it should have.

I have to agree with the others.  I don't care for this new format at all. it is confusing and not helpful. Swapped recipies are sorely missed as well as other features. Very difficult to navigate this site.

I really miss the swapped recipes.  I have to sign in every time I come even though I check remember me.  I no longer come every day.
