    Does anyone else besides us not like the new format on lawnsite. It is much harder to find stuff now that everything has moved. We haven't been on Lawnsite as much after the format changed. Sean and Chuck, you guys have a great site but why did you have to change the format? Anyone else have any thoughts on this?

    There was an earlier thread on this, consensus is most don't like it so far.

    I must be missing something here, what 'stuff' are you trying to find? I come to lawnsite and read the threads that sound interesting. Other than threads, what else is there?

    This is a WAY updated site compared to the old back-woods DOS feel of the previous version. I just wish the little Smilies would get lost.

    With all due respect the the owners of this forum, I personally prefer the previous version, minus the overloaded server probs that is.
    The older version was easier, clearer, this one has some great features but looks a little too "busy", and whereas before this forum looked unique, now it just looks like that "other" forum...

    My vote goes the the previous version, wish the server data base could of been updated without needing a new format/version, I understand this version is more secure than the previous, which is great....but as a forum user posting and reading the previous version I found to be better.

    The reading of posts feature, really hate that layout, that is why I never could get used to the other forum, looks impersonal with the font, and how the text is set out out in posts. jmho...

    love the easy to get to smilies though, :cool2:

    Give it a couple of weeks and you will get used to it.

    Put me in the camp that likes the changes. By the way, anyone else think of the point system as a lawnsite 'Survivor' show. Last one to get booted off for irritating people with their posts is the winner. Now if we just knew what the prize was.

    I could care less how it looks.
    The fact that it is now the slowest of any of the forums I visit is even more takes forever to load simple pages even with a cable wasn't like this before. I feel like I'm on AOL again...... :realmad:

    I don't find this version any slower. Actually, on cable, tcp/ip or whatever the hell we have at work, I think it's faster.

    I also like the old version, and really didn't think it had a DOS feel. That's a bit extreme I think.

    I DO think folks will get used to it, but, is it just me or does there seem to be far less activity here over the last week or so :confused:

    How could anyone want to get rid of the smilies? :cool: :blob4: :gunsfirin

    It must be your connection. All pages load in less than a .5 of a second everytime. I'm on cable. Acutally, this page was loaded in "Page generated in 0.15712500 seconds"

    I do like the older format better though.
