Donna:

We heard your feedback about keeping the site updated and current.  On the new site, we're putting VBBers on stage and sharing their new ideas and recipes along with ours.  We wanted to get the Swapped Recipes section just right so it will be back soon!  Also, we have our Recently Uploaded Recipes in the lower left-hand corner so that you can see the newest 8 recipes on every page!

We hope you'll spend some time on the new site and give us a chance to win you over!

I must agree.  This site not as attractive, nor as easy to navigate as the old site  . There were several of us who became good friends and loved to visit several times a day in order to interact.  I have difficulty now even knowing who is on the site.  The old avatars and  monikers were like old friends.  Why the change ?

It took me a little time to adjust to the change, but I must say I like this new format. I don't remember what the old site was like anymore. I hope people will keep trying to figure things out, I learn so much here.

I enjoy this new site very, very much..... that's why I come.

It makes no sense at all to keep visiting a site you dislike

I really like this site.  I visited the old site but never participated in any of the discussions.  I have found many very nice people, lots of great recipes.  I will admit that the "old" way of being able to search for a recipe was nice, and I do miss the swapped recipes.  That said I am very pleased to have found new friends and a way to swap ideas and recipes. (even more now that I have discovered how to copy a recipe that someone posts.)
Donna, give it and us time....promise it will be worth it.

Hi Jeannine! It isn't the same at all. I miss the old site too.... I guess I keep coming here because I hope to see some of the old friends and I keep waiting on a way to find the swapped recipes without having to go thru every page on this site.

Hope you are doing ok. Tell Latigo and Canuck Gold hello from us.

Instead of trying a whole new site, they should have just updated a few things on the old site.

I liked the old site in that it was easier to read - the print wasn't as small and "light" colored.  However, I, too, never interacted on the forums before the change, and I do like seeing names I recognize and chatting with my new friends, especially here in the Water Cooler!

My dear friend...it is good to connect with you again.  think of you often and the good things we have shared thru the years.  Doing good as is rest of family.  Let's keep in touch.   Whatever happened to our VBB get together we asked for so many times ?  Hope to see some other old friends when weather gets better for travel

It is good to see you back Jeannine. If your weather is like ours, it is solid ice/snow and shivering. We have had snow here in TX for 5 days now. Very unusual.

I think Rotty Girl comes on sometimes and so does SusieSew and GranA. But, that is about it. Most of the others are on facebook now and we try to keep in touch that way. I know Tyger, DaisyMay, TMB, Sharon, Drizzle, MontyMom, TashaBuddy and a few others are on it. Do you still have anyones e-mail address. I lost a lot of mine when they switched my mail to a new format and yours was on it. If you have someones, they can connect you to us. There isn't any private messaging on here yet.

I liked the older simpler way better for a lot of reasons.  But I am getting used to the new site.  I hope to see more improvements as time goes on.

I love the new site,I never interacted on the old site,I was a little uncomfortable at first.I so love talking with all the VBB's such nice folks.We share conversation and recipes and I'm here to learn also,cooking and baking you can always learn new tricks.I've been cooking and baking for about 45 years and finally learned how to make a great pie crust from one of the swapped recipes on this site.I do visit other sites, but I always come back to this one, because of the folks in this community.

Gale,
I don't think that people like change. The new website is coming along. I agree with you, it was uncomfortable at first, but I too love talking to all the VBB. Lets give them a chance.

You didn't give the rest of us something to vote for. I found the site a little difficult at the beginning, but the forums are fun and sometimes enlightening and I think the site is working hard to please. Change is hard, but it can be for the better. We wouldn't have been discussing this on the old website.
