I guess we should watch what we wish for,this confusing.I have all my pts. as well.I see there are many that do not, I wonder why.I'am up late as well working on the menu for my wedding...Changed the date twice due to things beyond our control..All is going well.Working on sketches for the wedding cake.I keep changing my mind.I get many great ideas from "The Cake Boss". I love that show.I type all the shows for ideas.I just wanted to keep my friends up to date on the plans...Wish me luck.......Wow , what changes on this site.I have been on for hours trying to figure it out..The other way seemed friendlier. They say changes are good,we shall see about that,I better get back to what needs to be done....

This is the third or fourth day I've logged on to the new site and I get more frustrated by the day.
I really don't think they thought this out before releasing the new programming.
There is no rhyme or reason to this site.
Just finding this place to post was a fluke.
I've lost all my previous points, can't figure out how to earn more and really,
I think I've spent the last of my valuable time on VBB trying to figure out the new site.

Thanks VBB for your past years but, this new upgrade that confuses everyone has made me realize
I have better ways to spend my valuable time.

Good bye

I finally found the Brownie Points "instructions," and they've even changed the way they allot points. I also seem to "lose" my points on a daily basis, as the number is never the same, and seems to re start on each day. Wonder if it's a daily accumulation that they're showing, or if my comp is just weird. I haven't had the time to navigate to my recipe box to see what they did with that. This whole thing reminds me of going back to your home after some natural disaster and trying to figure out what you've got, picking through trying to salvage something...

It is true that the site is not working as it should and we apologize for all the trouble this has caused you and our other VBBers.  We are working hard to get this site to be something you can be proud to participate in.  We appreciate the time you've invested in us in the past and hope we can earn your time in the future as well.

Wow, is this a blast from the past!  Gus and Julie haven't been on here since 2011?  Wonder how they're doing.

How do posts that are 2 years old get brought up again?  There should be a way that the old irrelevant posts get set so no additional post can be added.  Not that posts are irrelevant it just seems once an issue has been resolved it should be set so either a new discussion needs to be started.  I would hate to delete the old posts as there are recipes that are intertwined in the posts that it would be a shame to see them go away.
Again with the request that there should be an easy way to add a recipe from a post to our recipe box.

Great post Nikki .... Thank you.
Ive been losing interest in this entire site (which used to be my favorite) because of the old messages being brought up again and again and the dozens and dozens of  messages used only to gain points .... posting your current weather temperature 3 or 4 times in one day, using the same post over and over ....members posting an entire page of non-cooking messages on one forum and so on.   Why?
We have so many members who have never shared a recipe or talked about cooking ... posting just to receive points.
It seems that this site isn't about anything but points Cry

You are right Ann I would not want to lose points but wish we could get something for them.

I hope VBB is reading our posts.  Perhaps they will eventually put old posts in a file that could be recalled......just not every time it appears on the horizon.  Maybe they could be labeled "Old Posts re: (whatever subject they pertain to)".  That would be a time consuming task, so it probably will never be seen on this site.

Posted by Mary L


You can not add a recipe that is in a post to your recipe box. That is unless you re type the entire recipe into your recipe box.

I did't know you could type a recipe into your recipe box.  I visit my recipe box several times a week and am really glad they have it for us.  I never posted anything on the old site, but did go to my recipe box often.  I think recipes are the main focus of this list.

And Nancy, I think we only receive points ONCE on each post. So if someone posts a reply several times on the same post, it doesn't change their point total. Therefore adding the temperature each day makes no difference!!!
