Very Best Baking team, I realize your working on the site. And although I've appreciated this website in the past(as I visit it daily) I really miss alot of things. I can't access my recipe box,and I have Halloween recipes I want to view. I also miss swapped recipes and the way the baking memories were displayed. After awhile, we started to recognize each other. From what I can forsee this website has alot of dedicated bakers,Very Best Bakers at that. I hope things work out soon. I know alot of time and effect has gone into this. I will gladly accept the ols website,if things don't turn out the way they were planned. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

I agree with you.  The one thing I miss is not being able to check how many brownie points you have for that day.

I have to agree. I have tried to be patient while the new site is developed. I, too, have looked for my recipe box and cannot find it anywhere! I liked the Baking Memories forum, and the Swapped Recipes-from people across the country sharing their families' recipes. They are the best!

I also agree.  I have great difficulty navigating through these "new" pages - can't find things, cannot locate pages to accumulate points.  I miss the swapped recipes and baking memories forum too.  I hope this webpage becomes more user friendly because it isn't in its current state. :(

To all our VBBers:

First of all, we appreciate that fact that you consider yourselves VBBers and that you've spent so much time on our site.  We know you have A LOT of options and selecting VeryBestBaking.com menas a lot.

Secondly, we realize this transition has not been a smooth one but we want to help with that.  Your Recipe Box can be found in the top right corner of your screen when you're signed in.  Some VBBers had trouble accessing it at first due to data being missing; please let us know if your recipes are not back!

Swapped Recipes are coming back soon; there were so many to move it is taking some time.  Once they are here, you'll be able to do more with the Swapped Recipes and it will be easier to share them.

We see you've found that Baking Memories are now Shared Stories in our Community; we changed them so that even more stories can be added, not just past memories.  We wanted our VBBers to have more stories to look through and we think the new format lets our users submit more types of stories.

We are working to improve Brownie Points in the coming months; we think our loyal VBBers deserve more than just "points" and are working to develop a program that rewards our most loyal VBBers.  Stay tuned.

I posted on this thread over an hour ago and it went to no mans land again. It isn't getting any better. Tonight, I have had to sign in seven times. My recipe box is missing over 100 recipes too. And I noticed the newly added recipes are still the same old ones. Thought that was going to change too.

I just spent a bit of time checking out the other topics. Do you realize there are already over 5100 discussions/threads on here? Not posts but threads. How in the world are we supposed to keep up with that? There is absolutely nothing to let us know were new posts and threads are from day to day. I give up.

Although my brownie points finally showed up, I am very confused as to how we earn more of them.  So far, it looks like I haven't earned any over the past few days.  At least on the old site, the points showed up as you went through it.  Is that what is supposed to happen here?

I am anxious to see how the new site will work out....but for right now, I'm disappointed that I cannot access my Recipe Box!  :(  I had a lot of recipes in there that I used around the holidays, and I would really like them back.  I'm still getting the "Oops!" page when I click on the link at the top right of the page.

I agree and am waitin to see if they bring back some of our swapped recipes, our recipe box I too had lots of recipes. I miss our baking memories and for the love of me cannot remember which name I picked. Should have wrote it down somewhere. Hope everyone has a nice day. It is nice here in Danville, Va

I miss the old site I agree with all of the comments I have read I can't find anything & if I would have known I would have printed out my recipes or at least downloaded them to my computer. I have given up on the brownie points I just look at the recipes & leave the site.
