Dont know why im even taking the time to post this? but i mis the old forum/site look. i feel lost now. when i used to sign on before i could see the new threads and pick out the interesting ones. now i can still see the new threads but i find no interesting ones anymore. dont know if im doing soemthing wrong or no one it posting anymore or all the threads are now lame. has traffic gone down in the forum since the change? i just wish it would go back to what it was.

 

sign,

sad

No disrespect to our esteemed site owner or the brain-children who keep us up and running, but I agree with Niko. Maybe it is just the lack of color, but I just can't seem to "get into it" lately.I also am having challenges navigating by discovery where things now are on the site. I am sure it is just my brain, as I have heard several others fall in love with the new look. I guess I am just a difficult date.

I liked the display of a person's country of origin and the ability to give feedback comment.

I was under the impression that the whole format of the Forum is in transition.

Perhaps it is better to say that it will continue to evolve as new features are added and maybe some of the old more popular features return.

As one who writes websites professionally I sympathise with the technical department of Monachos.net.

 

Sometimes websites just have to move from one technical base to a new one - there are lots of reasons: lack of support, lack of security, new versions not being compatible with the old ones, as well as a desire for a spring clean.  Most of us in the internet industry have been faced with having to put a brave face on changes that we would really prefer not to have made, but circumstances dictate it.

 

I have a small, much loved site that I manage for a local Anglican Parish, but the technology that it is built with is so easily hacked that I am really fearful of checking one morning to discover it hijacked for porn or worse - I have to move it on, but the owners don't want anything changed - in the end I have had to give ultimatums.

 

I'm not sure if Monachos is in the same boat, but do please have some sympathy for the technical team while they struggle through this.

 

Love, Richard.

I personally appreciate the technical side of the new forum. It has a feature for phones and makes surfing the posts much more convenient on the smaller screen of an iPhone. :)

I have to say I really like the new interface for smart phones. MUCH easier to deal with on my iPhone than the old format!
