NO!! the link you posted is the old version... we like that

what is being suggested is to change the new version with the new "guts" and make it look like the old version

If there is a specific suggestion that we can incorporate into the new version to make it better for the users feel free to let us know those specific suggestions. We don't have a set time on when the old will be retired but it is no longer supported so anything that breaks will be left as is. We don't have the resources to support multiple versions and we have to move forward with technology.

To put things in perspective, this is the original website and older versions. The links below will take you there. The website had to be changed over the years. There have always been users who did not like the change but it is all just part of technology and the changes that happen.

I do remember the second one you linked to. When the version that we are now calling the "old version" was put in place, I didn't like the dark green as a predominant color. I have since come to love our old version and love the ease on the eyes of the dark green color.

The new version is wonderful for my iPhone which now has much larger text. No need to zoom each page. THAT is a wonderful improvement.

Same here.

I especially liked being able to use 'Dark Orange' on the solid green background...when quoting others.

However, with the 'tannish' background in the quote box of the new version...it is all but unreadable.

Oh well, I'll just have to figure out another way to be different...and weird.

I have my display options set to show the latest replies first. Just lately, the first post shown is the original post. After that, it then displays replies as I have requested...latest first. But I do not like the original post showing up first. Is that a new option that I can somehow turn off? Help please. This is a biggie for me. Don't like it at all.
