I am bumping the ticket.
I was somewhat surprised to log on to this web site a couple of weeks ago to find this new "improved " version of Model Rail Forum. Frankly it is a great disappointment it is difficult to navigate and I do not see it to be an improvement on the original site. The old web site was easy to navigate and you could see at a glance where everything was.
I have been a member of this web site for many years now and have referred to it most days. I have obtained and given information and regarded it as a useful asset to our hobby.
Sadly this is no longer the case. Maybe I am not the only member who sees this in a negative light as there seems to be far fewer posts. I will give it another month and unless there are changes that significantly improve it, or reverts to the original format then sadly I will cease to visit it.
There are other model railway websites out there which are much easier to use and receive frequent posts. Lets hope you can improve this one.
I also agree with Peter and Paul.Peter,
Sorry to say I too have been steadily abandoning once good websites following supposed 'upgrades' to the software on which they run.
The problem as I see it is that the software has to eventually be replaced to keep up with the underlying OS: now that's both necessary, and not a problem in and of itself. But what also happens is that the appearance and functionality is also modified very significantly and quite unnecessarily. What's forgotten is the old mantra 'KISS'.
