I'm fairly new to these forums so the change isn't as dramatic for me. But so far I like the new forums! They are faster, easier to navigate, and I like that I can add pictures from my hard drive rather than hotlinking. (Plus, I can click on the pictures to see them larger. Fooooood poooooorn.)

They still need to add a few features (like emoticons, quoting, threading) but I'm sure this stuff will be implemented over time.

    This seems more akin to the facebook wall than true forums.

    BGERob, after a first peruse there are a lot of questions. From your post some changes will follow, so I will hold off, however, one important question was just posted in a new topic.

    I am guessing you are the person to ask?

    I agree, seems easier to navigate.

    it may be easier to move in theory my my laptop hates this new format. It jerks about from screen to screen and is very slow. Is anyone else having this issue?

    I amhaving the same issue and it's pissing me off.

    Ajcampillo, Right there with ya!! I could get to used to whatever format but the slow and jerky thing is sending me over the edge. After a day in a max security prison the last thing I want to deal with is an obstinate computer. :(

    The new forum is nice and speedy on my laptop.  I wonder what they are doing that's causing it to slow down for some people?  Guess I'm lucky.

    Not sure what's going on.  All day and up until looking and commenting on this post, all was fast and smooth.  Just now the screen stalled and was jerky.

    Grandpas Grub, I am able to move around with no issues until I try toe enter a decusssion group. Logged off, virus check still acting wacky.

    I just made two more posts and all is back to smooth.  Not sure what's up.  One thing I can't do is post a link and then get the link to get to that old post.  Also, there is a limit on how much info can be put in a post.  Too many pictures and or too much text gets a 'post too long' message.
