Does it seem that there is less use of this web site since the new format?

I know I don't frequent this site as often as I did before the change.

Why do you think the new format would drive people away?
They better get used to it. Almost all of the yacking boards I visit are running the same package. That is pretty handy once you get used to it since you only have one system to learn. I do have the colors set different on each so I can remember who I am talking to ;-)

Greg,
I don't really know what it is, but I just don't like the look and feel of the new system and I am not here near as much as before. If they all change over to something like this, I guess it would be a good thing as it would free up some of my time...the time I would have spent on the forums if I liked how they work.

Hangin out recently, it seems that a lot of guys wandered away.
Haven't seem much from Ryan, although he does respond to private msg & e-mails.
Seems like a lot of the 'Jersey Guys' are on vacation too! Except Les, Ron, & now Celtic who 'fessed up above that he's becoming less frequent. And, Roger...an honarary 'Jersey Guy'.!!

This format isn't as good as others I frequent. Maybe its because I don't know how to set it up for me. I like the format way better here http://board.uscho.com

That is the system IAEI Florida was using but they changed to this one. They said it wasn't going to be supported anymore by their provider.
Yours may go away too if that is true.

BTW have you looked at "my stuff" to set your preferences? You can unclutter the screen by turning off the left column and I increased the number of posts on a page so I don't have to "next" so often.
IAEI also lets you turn off the right column

I've done that also. Is there anyway to make the reply box bigger?? I can't tell where line breaks are. In a long post I'd prefer to double space as it makes it easier to read.

I actually like this format, it has a little bit of getting used to it but once your past that it's fine. I have noticed that several of the people who posted before are not posting here and I think they haven't found this new location yet. There are a few of them that I don't miss \:\)
