    Stating the Obvious

    Man this new board is awful. Was looking at the discussions today and noticed how little activity there is now. Posts hardly get into the double digits. Tough for brides to find information when no one posts, tough for those at work to pass the time by, and equally rough on those of us who are using the boards for both reasons.

    Thanks b.com for killing the discussions and censoring them to the epitomy of ridiculousness.

    I hear ya, Missy.  Waiting for the boards to load is excrutiating.  I'm hoping they'll keep improving.  In the meantime, I need to find another boredom-killer at work...mindless snacking is not going to work for me...first dress fitting in 5 days!  b.com, please save my waistline and fix the dang boards!

    Hi girls! I agree-this s*&#s! (not sure if I could say it) Everyone has left boston.com. Don't know why they tried to fix something that wasn't broke! It's really hard for brides who are still planning and booking things.

    I agree, this is still very disappointing.  The page loading is still very slow, which kills much of my interest in participating much.  Not enough patience for a 30+ second refresh each time!

    I know!  They stink. Good job on driving all of the old posters away!  There was no need for the change; the boards worked just fine.  Now, it takes WAY too long for stuff to load, esp when you get beyond page 1.  But hey, they have managed to make sure that the ads on each page are specifically targeted to the subject matter of the post, so I guess from BDC's perspective and the perspective of their advertisers, the boards are 100% better!  I have been lurking on ivillage rather than here ever since the change b/c it's so much faster over there, but it's just not the same.

    this new format really does suck.  last week i went to post in the Boston Celtics discussion board.  I couldn't post in GREEN.  

    how can one properly post on a board in a color that is appropriate????

    i also find these new BDC boards so much slower.  I don't have alot of time (still trying to find a JOB)...

    Posting suddenly has been coming far more quickly, and yeaterday and today Search has changed so that instead of getting maybe 5 responses, 40 -60 come back (Itried some same searches as early last week.)  The posts come back with their whole thread, so if you search for - Inns in a certain area, a few posts will give you several threads  with lots of posts each,  and generic Hairdresser N of Boston - only 2 threads,  but each full of recommendations.  Finally, WOW.  Lacking in that the threads have numbers, but no .1  or .34  to tell you where in the thread the post with keywords is, but that is fixable.

    But NOW -  I cannot post dress pictures,  which you could before and immediately after the changes!  Could they F it up  more?

    I wonder,  does what they show advertisers  indicate a drop of more than 90% in number of viewers and posts?

    Use FireFox as your browser and add the extensions for ad blocker. I was wondering what everyone was talking about with ads, then I actually opened an IE window and well that sucks.

    I'm with you on that.  And they still haven't fixed my member date or number of posts. 

    Don't they know, if it ain't broke, DON'T FIX IT!!!

    (And what's with the default font being 8pt?!!?  You should be able to log in to your profile and set up preferences for font type and size.)

    FYI - I changed my font to 10pt on that last post, and you can see how well THAT worked!!!

    I didn't know that about the Firefox ad blocker.  I only have access to IE at work, so I'm stuck with it.
